Amaro Averna Sicilian Bitters (1x70cl)

Amaro, which is Italian for "bitter", is an Italian herbal liqueur variety that is commonly taken as an after-dinner digestif. It has a bitter-sweet flavour and an alcohol content typically anywhere between 15% and 35%. 
 
Amaro is typically produced by macerating herbs, roots, flowers, bark, and/or citrus peels in alcohol, either neutral spirits or wine, mixing the filtrate with sugar syrup, and allowing the mixture to age in casks or bottles. It is typically drunk neat and usually with a citrus wedge. It may also be drunk on ice or with soda or tonic water. 

Averna Amaro is a Sicilian masterpiece. A digestif liqueur which has been imbibed for over 200 years, Averna has a full body and smooth taste, with notes of liquorice and citrus combined with chocolate and vanilla.  Averna Amaro is produced using an ancient recipe which has been passed down from one generation to another since 1868.

Each of the most delicate phases of the production of the bitter, all of which take place in the herbalist’s laboratory, are stringently checked in order to guarantee the authenticity of the ingredients and the high quality of the product. This is why Averna is one of the most famous bitters worldwide.

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.

Asbach 3 year old (1x 70cl)

“I would like to create a wine distillate, made from the best grapes, that recognises German taste as well.” Hugo Asbach, Founder of House of Asbach. 

Born in Cologne, Germany, in 1868, Hugo Asbach went to France, which where he learned the art of distilling wine. He returned to Germany in 1892 and founded his own company in Rüdesheim on the banks of the romantic Rhine River, beginning with two stills. This laid the cornerstone for the unique history of the House of Asbach. After his death, his sons continued his work. In keeping with the quality standards established by Hugo Asbach, only the very highest quality of wine distillates is still used today.

Asbach Original aged 3 years is a fine and noble distillate. Through traditional distillation, careful storage for at least 3 years in oak casks and the secret Asbach maturing and refining process, Asbach Original aged 3 years acquires its unique and distinctive taste.

The flavours are full- bodied and vinous, sweetness of ripe grapes combining with spicy notes of the noble oak- wood, harmonious and enjoyably warming. The finish has slightly smoky notes of wood, nice cocoa notes, stimulating tannins.

Berry Bros & Rudd The King's Ginger Liqueur (1x50cl)

The King's Ginger was specifically formulated by Berry Bros. & Rudd in 1903 for King Edward VII.

King Edward VII literally lived life in the fast lane. He would endlessly drive his horseless carriage (a Daimler), whatever the weather. So much so, that in 1903 the Royal Physician became concerned about the monarch’s health. So, he called on Berry Bros. and Rudd for a solution, a high strength liqueur that would warm and revivify His Majesty. Crafted from fresh ginger, (for centuries celebrated for its medicinal properties) and enlivened by the judicious addition of citrus oil, The King’s Ginger was born. Rich, golden and delightfully crisp in flavour, it helped King Edward stay colourful and ready for whatever came next.

While wonderfully uplifting and enjoyable on its own, The King’s Ginger comes to life in social situations (just as King Edward did). It is the perfect foundation for any occasion.

ABV = 41.0%.

Colonsay High Croft Gin (1x70cl)

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. Colonsay High Croft Gin is bottled at 43.7% ABV using pure Scottish water.

Colonsay High Croft Gin, previously known as ‘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 Colonsay High Croft gin is:

1 part Colonsay High Croft 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.
