    Stolichyana

    ,
    Proudly kicking of our range with Stoli... our great entry level vodka. It is completely reliable and the pouring vodka for most decent bars. There are 3 key elements that separate Stoli from its immitators... First, Stoli is distilled from winter wheat, which is the best tasting wheat, not from corn or other grains. Secondly, virtually all domestic vodka producers use processed water to reduce the product to its proper proof, whilst Stoli uses the purest, softest glacial waters to ensure purity and finesse. Last, Stoli is carefully filtered through both quartz and activated charcoal, then through quartz again.

    Chase Smoked

    ,
    If you haven't tried this we highly recommend it. An initial peppery haze opens up to a lightly sweet and creamy, oak smoke with delicate notes of ash. Sweet and light woody notes of liquorice root greet the palate on entry. Hints of charcoal and black pepper lead the way with a lightly tingling bitterness and spice, before the billowing oak smoke that follows. The finish has a soft and delicate smokiness, warming like orange embers in the fireplace. Try it neat and slightly chilled as it tastes great on its own. With its smoky and moreish qualities, it also makes a great base for a range of cocktails especially in a Bloody Mary and as a food-pairing vodka with smoked fish. Glass of vodka with dinner anyone? Its a bit of a tradition in Herefordshire.

  • belvadere

    Belvedere Unfiltered

    ,
    The Polish know how to make an amazing vodka. Full-bodied and elegant, Belvedere Unfiltered is vodka at its smoothest and most distinctive. It is created from 100% "Single Estate" Dankowskie Diamond Rye, a select baker's grade grain grown on a few Polish farms. This rye possesses such a naturally creamy, intense flavour that after being distilled 4 times, the vodka is left unfiltered in order to preserve its character and taste. Full but mellow with initial impressions of salted caramel, freshly baked bread and a touch of honey. Mid palate evolves into fresh minerality with some stone and flint characteristics. Back palate is refreshed with delicate notes of sea salt and a hint of white pepper. Mouthfeel is rich, well rounded and luscious. Sustained, swaying between sweet and salt. Notes of baked bread, vanilla and cream. This is the king of vodka.

    Doorly’s Gold 5 yo

    ,
    Rum has been produced on the island of Barbados for more than 300 years, but it was not until the 1906 Rum Duty Act was passed that the industry began to develop as we know it today. Prior to this, distillation took place on many of the plantations, but the new law meant the distilleries had to obtain a licence and could sell only in bulk. Hence many of the Bridgetown trading companies became bottlers, including Martin Doorly & Co, and the growth of branded names began. Martin Doorly evolved into Doorly’s Macaw Rum, and became the first bottled rum exported from the island. Doorly’s rums are still famous throughout the world. This 5 year old golden rum is an absolute cracker. A very tasty Bajan rum is typical of the region and offers plenty of tropical fruit - great in cocktails or for sipping on its own over ice. Tasting Notes... •Amber, with a complex, dried tropical fruit nose. •A vibrant entry leads to an evolving palate of fruit, toasted coconut and oak notes. •Finishes with a fruity sweetness and warmth, but has a balanced lingering taste with a butternut vanilla aftertaste.

    RL Seale’s 10 yo

    ,
    The flagship brand for RL Seale & Company, RL Seale’s 10 YO is a real treasure. Aged in traditional American oak bourbon barrels for ten years, the barrels are then hand selected to create the only rum in the collection to proudly carry the Seale family name. The RL Seale’s 10 YO has a nose which is distinctly nutty with a full, smooth and well rounded body followed by hints of fig and floral spice. It then delivers a palate of delicious butternut with light vanilla and dried fruits and its finish lingers with hints of roasted almonds, cinnamon and toffee. • RL Seale is one of Barbados' oldest trading houses, a family-owned business whose involvement in rummaking extends from father-to-son since 1820. Current head distiller, Richard Seale, is one of the region's most innovative distillers and blenders and has a passion for producing perfect rum with great flavour. • The Foursquare Distillery occupies the site of a former sugar factory that dates back to 1636 and, as one of the most modern and efficient rum distilleries in the world, is designed to be both highly energy efficient and environmentally friendly. • The distillery produces light rums in a three-column vacuum still and heavier rums in a modern pot still.

    Duppy Share

    ,
    The Duppy Share is a balanced and versatile blend of premium rums from the beautiful Worthy Park Estate in Jamaica and the prestigious Foursquare Distillery in Barbados. Distilled by fourth generation rum masters, the spirits are aged in old, American oak bourbon barrels, blended in Amsterdam and bottled in London. The Duppy Share takes its name from the dark ghosts or spirits of Caribbean folklore known as duppies. As a spirit ages in barrels, a certain amount is lost through evaporation each year. Known as the Angel's Share in whisky production, this is far too tame for the world of rum… Caribbean legend has it that the duppies swoop between islands stealing the best share of the rum. Spirit masters, skilled in the fine art of blending, the duppies take only the best. This is The Duppy Share.

    Old J Tiki Fire

    ,
    In 1740 Admiral Edward Vernon enforced a reduction in the strength of the British Navy's rum ration. When his men complained, Vernon suggested the addition of limes and sugar to make the drink more enjoyable. "Old J" was created in honour of this unlikely mixologist who was known as "Old Grog". "Old J" Tiki Fire redresses the strength reduction by increasing the strength to 151 proof but keeps the great tasting spicing, lime and sugar to create a truly special rum.

    Great King Street

    ,
    A delicious, approachable blended Scotch whisky from the folks at Compass Box. The Great King Street range takes its name from their Edinburgh offices. Artist's Blend is incredibly enjoyable neat and works great in cocktails too. Win/Win. Due to the preponderance of poorly made, inexpensive Blended Scotch Whiskies on the market, many people assume any bottle of Scotch bearing the term "blended" is somehow inferior. Not if you make it the way these guys do. Let's enlighten people to joys of a well-made Blend, because they open up so many new opportunities to enjoy great whisky. So there.

    Timorous Beastie

    ,
    The original Timorous Beastie, immortalised in Robert Burns' famous Scots poem "To a Mouse", was a timid, little field mouse. Echoing the bard's wit, this whisky is most certainly not for the fainthearted, non chill-filtered "Vatted Malt" at 46.8% strength is a marriage of appropriately aged and selected Highland Malts. • Overridingly sweet initially on the nose, then warming to floral, light barley and spicy honey'd tones. The palate opens in a spicy style - now fructiferous, mellow, sugary and fudgey in style. The finish is subtle yet sweet - detect a soft cough drop camphor / oaky hint plus milky cereals and late meringue. Bit weird but there is a lot going on with this whisky! • Blended from Whiskies distilled at Glen Garioch, Dalmore and Glengoyne distilleries. Douglas Laing's Timorous Beastie small batch release is brimful of flavour with a honey spiced character and a piquancy to relish... This little mouse ensures quality reigns supreme! • Ideally sipped with chocolate

    Rock Oyster

    ,
    Prise open a rock oyster and you’d be lucky indeed to find a pearl. The real treasure though is the hidden, tasty delicacy inside, rich with the flavours of the sea. Bottled at 46.8% alcohol strength and traditionally without colouring or chill-filtration, this Small Batch bottling has a truly maritime and oceanic character of sea-salt, sweet peat, smoke, honey and pepper. Containing the finest Malt Whiskies from Scotland’s Whisky islands, including those distilled on Islay, Arran, Orkney and Jura, it’s no wonder our Master Blender Fred Laing says “If I could select just one dram to transport the Whisky enthusiast to the Islands of Scotland, it would be this Rock Oyster.” NOSE: Anticipate wave soaked rocks and a salty oceanic, fresh influence. A hint of peat smoke, and an enticing sweetness. PALATE: An initially subtle palate that carries soft and rather sweet peat paralleled with smoke, honey, damp ash and develops with liquorice and late pepper. FINISH: The maritime is neatly replicated on the long, moreish finish.

    Scallywag

    ,
    Big Peat's gone and got himself a trusty sidekick in the shape of a dapper Fox Terrier wearing a monocle. Scallywag is a Small Batch bottling created using only the finest Speyside Malts including, amongst others, spirit distilled at Mortlach, Macallan and Glenrothes Distilleries. Bottled at 46% alcohol strength and proudly non chill-filtered, Scallywag embodies all that is Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky – beautifully sherried, richly spiced and truly charming. Spanish Sherry butts care for this spirit as it matures, naturally imparting the distinctly dark, rich colour. Inspired by a long line of Douglas Laing family Fox Terriers, the Scallywag name and endearing canine character are most fitting for this richly spiced and deliciously sweet Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky. NOSE: Rich spices and delicious vanilla. PALATE: Layer on layer of sweet stewed fruit, Christmas pudding and dark chocolate infused with nutmeg and cinnamon. FINISH: A burst of zesty orange with sweet tobacco, cocoa and fruit cake. The Speyside region is home to over half of Scotland’s Malt Whisky distilleries, more than Islay, the Highlands, the Lowlands and Campbeltown combined. Its rich, wet landscape creates a ripe environment for distilling and maturing Whisky, and Malt Whiskies produced in the Speyside region are typically sweet, sherried and elegant in character.

  • whistlepig

    Whistlepig 10 YO Rye Whiskey

    ,
    Whistlepig produces a 100-proof, straight rye whiskey, aged for at least ten years through a unique double-barrel process. Whistlepig was released in the summer of 2010 to great critical acclaim, earning 96 points from wine enthusiast, their highest rating ever for a rye whiskey, a "highest recommendation" from spirits journal, as well as accolades from the wall street journal, GQ, forbes, maxim, imbibe magazine and many others. As master distiller Dave Pickerel notes, these extraordinary honours both "humble and set a high bar" for the company. Whistlepig embodies the perfect combination of proof, purity and age hitting "the sweet spot" in all three categories. In short: more rye, all the proof and the perfect age. Bit of history on Rye Whiskey anyone? Before the American Revolution, most Americans ate rye bread and drank Caribbean rum. Dutch settlers pushing up the Hudson brought the rye grain with them from the Low Countries, and introduced it to their Yankee neighbours, who needed a crop that could survive a winter far harsher than what they had left behind in England. Meanwhile, British ships regularly offloaded large volumes of rum shuttled from their West Indian colonies to their great colonial ports of Boston and New York. If Americans drank whiskey at all, it was because they were backwoodsmen too far from these ports to access this rum. These pioneer farmers turned to building their own stills, and distilling whatever might be left over from their harvests, as a way to keep the chill off in the cold northern winter. Things changed in the cities, though, after the colonists entered open rebellion. The Crown responded by hitting Americans where it really hurt: by placing an embargo on rum imports. Thirsty and resourceful, the young republic turned to something it could produce independently... rye whiskey. If the American Revolution had an “Official Beverage”, it would’ve been rye. All the classic American whiskey drinks, like the Old Fashioned and the Manhattan, called for rye. The hearty grain was right at home in northeast American soil, toughing out the long winters and persevering throughout the seasons. George Washington himself became the largest producer and distributor of rye in the United States.

    Woodford Reserve Double Oaked

    ,
    An innovative approach to twice-barrelled bourbon creates the rich and colourful flavour of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked. Uniquely matured in separate, charred oak barrels – the second barrel deeply toasted before a light charring – extracts additional amounts of soft, sweet oak character. This comes with a gift box shaped like a book. COLOUR: Deep Amber AROMA: Rich notes of dark fruit, caramel, sharp honey, chocolate, marzipan and toasted oak TASTE: A full-bodied mix of vanilla, dark caramel, hazelnut, apple, fruit and spices FINISH: Long and creamy with lingering hints of honeyed apple Nestled amid the rolling hills of bluegrass and thoroughbred farms sits the historic Woodford Reserve Distillery. One of Kentucky’s oldest and smallest distilleries, the present day Woodford Reserve Distillery is built on history, sitting on Kentucky’s oldest distilling site where Elijah Pepper began crafting whiskey in 1812. It was on these same hallowed grounds that years later Master Distiller James Christopher Crow perfected his whiskey-making methods, which today have become common practice, including the implementation of sour mash into fermentation. The Distillery is home to a 500-foot-long gravity-fed barrel run, iconic copper pot stills and 100-year-old cypress wood fermenters. They also boast one of the only heat cycled barrelhouses in the world, ensuring every drop seeps into the charred and toasted white oak, giving Woodford Reserve its colour and signature flavour. Very cool.

    Kah Skull Reposado

    ,
    Moving on to the heavy hitter... 110-proof (!) reposado, which is aged 10 months in French oak. Now the nose on this one is predictably strong nice butter, vanilla, cinnamon aromas and the herbal elements but it is just as balanced as the blanco and has good flavour - unlike many other high-proof tequilas. And the burn? Surprisingly there is very little, it spikes and then fades rather quickly. This is a high-proof tequila that you could actually sip for a while, and enjoy. With or without the Mariachi. It is made at the Fabrica de Tequilas Finos distillery, in Tequila, where they also make El Diamante de Cielo, Agave 99, and Costco’s Kirkland brand tequila, among others. This ultra smooth, and ultra high-proof tequila (the highest proof tequila available) slips slowly down the walls of the glass demonstrating its powerful personality. Full body, intense full agave flavour. 2010 Spirits of Mexico Tasting Competition medal winner. The bottom line is that you may be attracted by the pretty bottles, but there is also a reason to crack those skulls open and give this tequila a try.

    Kah Skull Blanco

    ,
    Day of the Dead tequila... This sort of product gets us excited about what we do! KAH® was designed to pay reverence and honour to Mexico and its people. Its bottle and spirit are reflective of Day of the Dead, the 3,000 year-old Meso-American ritual honouring deceased loved ones. KAH’s unique packaging, in turn, is inspired by traditional Calaveras used in Dia de los Muertos rituals to symbolize death and rebirth. The word KAH translates to “life” in the ancient Mayan language. Every bottle is an individual, hand-crafted work of art, no two bottles are the same. While the bottle captures that enduring spirit, so does the tequila inside, as KAH’s distillers transform hand-selected 100% Blue agave into lively Blanco, Reposado, Añejo and Extra Añejo varieties that are both certified Organic and Kosher. Blanco tequila taste... intense sweet notes of the cooked agave, followed by a spicy white peppery punch. Silky and delicate, leaving on the palate a sachet of spices. 2010 Spirits of Mexico Tasting Competition gold medal. This is something every person should own!
