Arbikie Potato Vodka - Scotland (1x 70cl)

Arbikie Highland Estate is a family-owned working farm perched on the east coast of Angus. Here, the crop is king. They painstakingly plant, sow, tend and harvest the fields and farms that make up Arbikie. They are craftsmen of the soil. This is an estate profoundly shaped by its environment: the red sandstone-tinted soil, the powerful sea and the turbulent weather give Arbike a character found nowhere else. And here, situated where land meets sea, sits our distillery – created from an ancient barn, this place has all the ingredients required to produce spirits of the highest quality. The Stirling family has been farming at Arbikie for four generations. From father to son, they have gained an intuitive understanding of the land, sowing and harvesting the crops that now create Arbikie’s spirits.

Think of all the tradition and passion involved in the making of single malt whisky – now think of that same energy going into the making of vodka. All would be futile without adding the finest ingredients. The potatoes are grown in their own fields (Maris Piper, King Edward and Cultra varieties) and picked at a time that ensures their creamy character stays alive all the way to the bottle.

They also apply that same care and craft to the distilling – using a copper still and water filtered through the Angus hills. The result is a truly exceptional vodka with an ultra-smooth and velvety taste. It is an experience to sip and savour.

Castarede Bas Armagnac VSOP (1x70cl)

In 1932, Raymond Castarède took over the family company. His wife, then his son, Jean Castarède, have continued to celebrate this french brandy. Today, it is Jean Castarède’s daughter, Florence Castarède who runs the company. She loves to travel the world and share her family's extraordinary heritage. She is the 6th generation of the Castarède family to run this business.

By law VSOP Armagnac must have spent at least 4 years in oak. However the Castarède VSOP has spent at least 8 years ageing in oak casks. This Armagnac is 100% Folle Blanche from the Castarède estate vineyard, located in Bas-Armagnac. This grape variety produces fine and often floral eau-de-vie with great elegance.

It has a warm amber colour and you can see the legs clinging to the glass that are indicative of its long barrel ageing.  There is a fruity and pleasant nose, with aromas of light pepper, coconut and walnuts as well as a honey and glazed plum finish. The palate is subtle and balanced. The flavours confirm the characteristics brought forward by the aromas.

ABV = 40.0%.

Colonsay Wild Island Sacred Tree Gin (1x 70cl)

Wild Island Botanic Gin is a celebration of the beauty and unique character of our island home, the Isle of Colonsay. They set out to create a truly exceptional spirit crafted around the native botanicals that grow on the crofts in the Southern Hebrides off Scotland’s West coast.

Crafted in a century old copper still at Langley Distillery, using 100% British Wheat infused with six native hand foraged botanicals growing wild on the island and a further ten as the base. Wild Island Botanic Gin is bottled in Scotland at 43.7% abv using pure Scottish water.

Wild Island ‘Sacred Tree’ Gin uses an array of carefully selected Autumn fruits, including brambles hand gathered on the island, added to a composition totalling 22 individual botanicals to create an incredibly complex, ripe fruit, spicy-sweet contemporary London Dry style gin. The ancient Scots observed a ‘sacred tree’ calendar of which the bramble vine was one representing the month of September. It was during the month of September that the fruits were gathered and it is the bramble to which the distillers are giving prominence due to its predominant character.

The perfect way to serve Sacred Tree gin is:

1 part Wild Island Sacred Tree Gin
2 parts good quality tonic water (try Elderflower tonic for a twist on the original)
1 slice of ripe red apple
A scattering of black berries
Fresh cubed ice

Fill a highball glass with ice and pour in the gin. Top up with the tonic water, drop in the slice of apple and garnish with the berries. Gently stir and serve.

Crystal Head Vodka - Canada (1x 70cl)

Why a Crystal Head bottle? According to legend, thirteen Crystal skulls held by native tribes in the Americas, the Navajo, Aztec and Maya, can be used to project positive energy and enlightenment. Inspired by this legend, Crystal Head's founders, Dan Ackroyd and John Alexander sought to craft a bottle worthy of one of the world’s purest vodkas. A symbol of life, reflecting power and enlightenment, to hold their award-winning white spirit of super natural purity. Crystal Head contains no additives. No glycerol, citrus oils or sugars. Nothing is added to enhance or mask the taste.

Crystal Head is produced in St. John’s, Newfoundland - an island located off the Canadian coast. It is there that the raw spirit is reduced with Newfoundland glacial water to 40% alcohol by volume. This distillery is a superb facility, with exacting quality-control standards. 

The highest quality peaches and cream corn is distilled four times into a neutral grain spirit and blended with pristine water from Newfoundland,  Canada to make Crystal Head Vodka. The liquid is then filtered seven times, of which three are through layers of semi precious crystals known as Herkimer diamonds. Herkimer diamonds are semi-precious quartz crystals.  Beautiful examples of the planet’s crystalline deposits, these stones have no colored rutilations. The most significant deposit occurs in Herkimer County, New York. New Age belief systems profess that quartz crystals emit positive energy and are known to have properties that promote human healing and wellbeing.

Dark Matter Spiced Rum - Scotland (1x 70cl)

Dark Matter was the first dedicated rum distillery in Scotland. It came about after a holiday to the Carribean when the founders wanted to visit a rum distillery but could not find one that would accept visitors.  They casually remarked that it would be easier to build a distillery themselves at which point Dark Matter Distillers sprang to life. "Our curiosity drives us while science inspires us. Combining knowledge and imagination we obsessively pursue flavour through systematic study, observation and experiment."

It took four years for Dark Matter Spiced Rum to evolve from an idea to reality but it has proved a successful venture and this Scottish rum now has fans all over the world. 

Dark Matter Spiced Rum is a molasses-based rum with flavours of bell pepper, fresh ginger, green peppercorns and allspice. It is, according to the distillers, the taste equivalent of warping into a liquid black hole but without every atom in your body being crushed to an infinitely small point. We have no idea either - perhaps more tasting is required!

Jose Cuervo Tradicion Gold Reposado (1x 70cl)

In 1795, Jose María Guadalupe de Cuervo began selling the very first Vino Mezcal de Tequila de Jose Cuervo after receiving the first official charter from the King of Spain to produce tequila commercially. Cuervo has been producing tequila at La Rojeña, the oldest active distillery in Latin America, ever since.

Tradicional Reposado is 100% blue agave rested tequila. It has been aged in oak barrels for a minimum of two months, giving it the smooth and subtle complexity that aficionados seek. Tradicional is the original Cuervo tequila, and it is still the number one premium tequila in Mexico.

Kinrara Gin (1x 70cl)

Kinrara’s highland distillery is nestled in 12,000 acres of Cairngorm National Park, just outside Aviemore. One of Scotland’s newest micro distilleries, they make unique highland dry gins and liqueurs infused with local flora and berries. As they grow, they plan to also craft single malt whisky and Scottish rums.

The centuries old Cairngorm estate was founded by Lady Jane Gordon, beautiful socialite and co-creator of the famous Gordon Highlanders. The estate offers a stunning range of flora and berries that they forage for their gins and mix with carefully sourced botanicals. 

Kinrara distillery prides itself on creating a handcrafted small batch spirit. From the distillation of the gin right down to the bottling, everything is lovingly done by hand, by their passionate highland team.

This is a juniper led dry gin, combining both foraged and locally sourced botanicals. The rosehip’s and rowan berries that are used in the gin have been gathered from the estate grounds throughout the year. The nose is fruity and floral with a hint of rosehip and slight sweetness. The flavours are slightly floral, in this juniper led dry gin with a long subtle orange finish. Serve in a tumbler with lots of ice and topped with a premium tonic. Garnish with a twist of orange peel.

Kintyre Gin - Scotland (1x 70cl)

Beinn an Tuirc Distillery occupies a former piggery building located on Torrisdale Castle Estate in Kintyre, Scotland. The estate comprises around 1,200 acres of hill, forest and farm land and boasts magnificent views over the Kilbrannan Sound to the Isle of Arran. Kintyre Gin is made at Beinn an Tuirc Distillery. It is the latest brain-child of laird, Niall Macalister Hall who refuses to rest on his laurels and continues to come up with innovative ways to diversify the estate.

The small copper pot still was imported from Germany and has a fill capacity of only 230 litres, resulting in a truly hand crafted gin. The still is run on electricity supplied directly to them from their own hydro-electric  scheme. Their fine looking still is named Big Don, a nod to Niall and Kenny’s father who sadly passed away during the initial stages of the distillery’s development. A keen gin drinker, and luckily for us, someone with a great sense of humour, Donald will be watching on with interest!

They use 12 botanicals in Kintyre Gin, which have all been sustainably sourced. To achieve the characteristics of a very flavoursome and well-balanced spirit, the gin consists of 10 commonly used botanicals, with the addition of 2 which are unique, namely Icelandic moss and sheep sorrel - both grow on the estate in abundance. Either through maceration or vapour infusion, these produce a gin which is has earthy and spicy characteristics, being deep in flavour, with a very pleasant floral aroma.

£37.00

Lussa Gin - Scotland (1x70cl)

A gin truly from the Isle of Jura: not only are the 15 botanicals foraged there, but it is – unusually for island gins – distilled there too. It's a gin produced by a trio of wild ladies on a truly wild island.

If the term “full bodied” can be applied to a gin, it applies to Lussa. Jura honeysuckle, rose petals, ground elder, water mint, ground elderflower, lime flowers, rosehips, lemon balm, orris, sea lettuce and coriander are all used in the gin, along with spring water from the nearby Lussa glen.

Round, warm, fruited, citrussy and a wee bitty spicy: this is a real “boutique gin”.

£44.00

Maison Janneau 5 Year Old Grand Armagnac (1x 70cl)

Armagnac is one of three “Appellation contrôlée” French brandies. The other two are Cognac and Calvados. Armagnac is the oldest one, and the most ancient spirit in France and probably in the world. Indeed, traces of distilleries going back to the 14th century were found in the region. Armagnac officially celebrated 700 years of history in 2010. 

The main varieties of grapes used for the distilling wines at Janneau are Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche, Colombard, and Baco. All are white grape varieties. Only unfiltered, natural white wines, obtained through traditional vinification methods without racking-off so that the wines still contain their lees, are used to make 'Armagnac’.

This is a 5 year old Armagnac with a light body and a fruit driven flavour. It is a superb when used as a digestif with notes of apricot and oak on the palate. It is particularly well suited to being included in a cocktail. This 5 Year Old represents a soft style, which is intense and fruity. There are strong aromas of vanilla and plums with a pleasant subtle taste of burned barrels due to the ageing in new Limousin oak casks. It is surprisingly smooth.
