Martin Miller's Gin - England / Iceland (1x 70cl)

Martin Miller and his two friends, appalled by the lack of quality of gin and wanting to encourage a younger group of consumers into the gin fold, set off on a quest for the best gin possible, sparing no expense. To achieve this, juniper needed to be tamed, without compromising the traditional character of gin. Launching in 1999, Martin Miller’s Gin became the first modern-day high quality gin brand, thus setting off the gin renaissance.

Martin Miller was a strange mix. At heart a traditionalist yet, at the same time, possessed of a strong appetite for adventure combined with an illogical and irrepressible love of the Romantic. In creating his gin, the traditionalist in him demanded he make a gin that ‘tasted of gin’ and not, in his words, ‘of some highly flavoured confection’. To this end he insisted on only employing the methods and techniques of the ‘old school’ gin makers; sticking rigidly to their tried and tested methods and their classic range of botanicals.

Martin Miller's Original Gin, is pot distilled using two separate distillations. This imparts a unique balance of citrus and juniper. It is blended to a bottling strength of 40% ABV using Icelandic Spring Water. It is the perfect gin for martinis and gin and tonics.

Soft juniper, lime and orange rind flavours lead to a peppery finish with a subtle fennel fragrance on the nose, whilst on the palate there’s a ripe & sweet aniseed start, with bold citrus flavours, plenty of cardamom & green apple blending into a warm, mouth-watering finish.

Ogilvy Potato Vodka - Scotland (1x10cl)

The Jarron family, have farmed the land at Hatton of Ogilvy farm since 1910. People provide the farm’s pulse. Graeme Jarron heads up Ogilvy’s operations, alongside wife Caroline; a fusion of rustic know-how and metropolitan chic that’s proved a fruitful mix. Keeping it in the family, Graeme’s father Eric still harvests the potatoes, which grow a stone’s throw from the farmhouse B&B run by his mother, Grace.

The conceptual seed for Ogilvy potato vodka was sown some years ago amid thoughts of diversification and a desire to pursue something new. One winter’s night, Graeme started researching potato vodka, which eventually led to a call to the brewing and distilling boffins at Heriot-Watt University. Before too long, the Ogilvy Farm tattie trials were underway.

Thanks to their potatoes’ prime qualities, and a lot of perseverance, distillery plans started to progress. In early 2014 building began in earnest, with Graeme insisting on digging the foundations himself. By summer the still house was complete, ready for its custom-built still from John Dore & Co (the world’s oldest still maker). Now, after much toiling and testing, the perfect ending to our story is ready; let the labours of family hands fill a glass with a special spirit that’s nurtured, distilled, bottled and bonded on one Scottish farm.

The climax to Ogilvy's vodka production is charcoal filtration. They filter the vodka for up to a week using traditional charcoal, before ‘polishing’ it using a 1-micron sheet filter. Along with our painstaking distilling process, it ensures a smooth, mellow vodka with maximum taste integrity.

Old Pulteney Stroma Whisky Liqueur (1x 50cl)

Originating from the remote coastal town of Wick, Old Pulteney’s seafaring spirit runs deep within its soul. Historically, Old Pulteney Single Malt was dispatched by boat and matured in barrels surrounded by the ocean’s spray, giving the whisky its unique taste. Built in 1826, the Pulteney Distillery is rich in history. With traditional warehouses exposed to the invigorating sea air blowing in off the North Sea, Old Pulteney captures the taste of the sea in every drop of its liquid gold.

Stroma takes its name from a windswept isle situated off the rugged Caithness coast. Translating as the ‘island in the stream’, which also refers to the dangerous currents on the island’s shores, including the infamous ‘Swilkie’ whirlpool. Stroma’s lighthouse warns ships of these nearby powerful currents. Made at the distillery with award-winning Old Pulteney single malt whisky. It tastes equally well served neat, with ice or in a cocktail.

Stroma has a beautiful deep copper colour and a charming whisky aroma with notes of toffee. This fine liqueur is a careful blend of award winning malt whiskies and a mix of lighter malt whiskies. Stroma is smooth, sweet tasting and warming and, like the island itself , is packed full of robust and rugged undertones. Served neat or over ice, Old Pulteney Stroma Liqueur leaves a pleasantly warm and comforting afterglow.

The colour is a dark, rich brown while the aromas are of enticing fresh coffee, chocolate & vanilla. The flavours include fresh roasted coffee with notes of chocolate & light tequila. This is a smooth, yet dry liqueur.

Persie Herby & Aromatic Gin - Scotland (1x 50cl)

Persie Gin is the brainchild of the man behind the world’s first touring gin club, Simon Fairclough. Travelling up and down the country with a carload of over 150 gins, he was able to see first-hand which gin style scored top marks most often. But there wasn’t just one: there were three. Very quickly it became clear to Simon that three styles proved consistently most popular by a wide margin – fruity gins, savoury gins and slightly sweeter gins. So up front, he knew that Persie Gin needed to consist of a family of three expressions, so there would be something for everyone.

Secondly, top-scoring gin had more than a nice taste: it had aroma. With over 75% of flavour down to smell, aroma is the single biggest influence among tasters for liking each gin. So you could say he followed his nose. The result is Persie Gin: three distinct styles of aromatic gin created and distilled in the former Persie Hotel at the foot of Glenshee in Perthshire.

Hand-made in small batches in a bespoke, 230-litre copper pot still, the gin is distilled with pure glen water from the local hills. Each gin uses carefully chosen botanicals to evoke an emotive and comforting scent.

The Persie Herby & Aromatic gin has the aromas and flavours of fragrant herb gardens with bay trees, rosemary and basil. With Persie Gins engaging the nose first, this makes them perfect for a tonic mixer as the quinine doesn’t overwhelm it. If you are sensitive to the profile on the nose, you won’t even need garnish.

Pickering's 1947 (1x 75cl)

When Pickering's opened Summerhall Distillery, it was the first exclusive gin distillery to be established in Edinburgh for over 150 years. Their gin is based on an original 1947 recipe. It features nine Bombay botanicals, engineered by us to create Pickering’s famous full-bodied flavour with perfect bitter-sweet balance.

Believe it or not, Pickering's gin only came into being in 2013.  Before that, Matt and Marcus (the founders) had been friends and business partners for years, with backgrounds in engineering, furniture restoration and property renovation. They were working at Summerhall when they spotted the derelict dogs kennels from the small animal hospital that once stood in the middle of the old Royal (Dick) Veterinary School. What to do with it? As fate would have it, Marcus had recently inherited a gin recipe from a friend of his late father. Hmmm… The next step seemed obvious. They built the distillery then, despite having no background in distilling, kept trying, testing and experimenting until they succeeded. 

This is a spicy and sweet, authentic Bombay style gin. This edition is made precisely to their original recipe, as it was written down in Bombay, 1947. The cinnamon used in this version gives the gin a decidedly spicy kick. The nine botanicals used are are juniper, coriander, cardamom, fennel, anise, lemon, lime, cloves and cinnamon (in place of the angelica used in regular Pickering's).

Rookery Lavender Mead

Mead is likely to be the oldest alcoholic drink in the world with evidence suggesting mead production in Western Turkey in 45,000 BCE. There is archaeological evidence of mead production in every continent (except Australia), so while many countries have mead in their stories, no one place can claim its creation. In Scotland, and across the UK, there is evidence of mead production as far back as the Neolithic period, with residues suggesting mead being found from Ashgrove in Fife to Machrie Moor on the Isle of Arran.

The Rookery is a small meadery based in Perthshire. Claire and Christopher Mullin produce high-quality mead using local ingredients. At the Rookery, the majority of the fermentables in their recipes is honey and they never use sugars or syrups.  All the flavourings are high-quality ingredients with no artificial flavourings.  Many of their seasonal meads use hand-foraged ingredients, concentrating on Scottish native species such as meadowsweet, heather, mountain ash berries, crab-apples and a range of hedgerow berries.

Dried lavender from Provence is fermented with the honey and water; nothing else is added.

The aroma is strong with lavender flower, shrubbery and alcoholic headiness. This is a complex but fulfilling drink, which is best approached by acclimatising the palate to the lavender before judging.  After an initial lavender burst, there is an overarching but light sweetness accompanied by a dark, tannin bitterness.  Gingerbread notes, burnt sugar, and caramels.  Lavender remains on the palate for a surprisingly long time.  Best chilled.

Rookery Original Mead is based on one of the oldest recipes for mead in the world, from western Turkey, near Izmir and dated to 45,000BC.  A mild honey is blended with Scottish Heather Honey and fermented.  No other ingredients or additives are used…ever.

The aromas are floral, with hints of honey, but are also tangy. The flavours are smooth, sherry-like and with a hint of musk.  Initial mouth sweetness is followed up with a warming, yet strong background of alcoholic warmth.  It lingers on the palate with floral notes from the heather honey.  Best chilled.

Spruce tips are gathered from a Perthshire hill in May.  Only young tips can be used as the flavour changes drastically after a few weeks.  The Sami of Northern Scandinavia who used spruce as an intoxicating drink in shamanic rites inspired this drink.

The aromas are lightly woody with a hint of menthol. The flavours are smooth and citrusy with honeydew melon and pear-drop, turning to gentle peat as it fades.  Lacking in any hint of pine, this is light and refreshing on the palate.  Best chilled.

Tapatio Tequila Reposado (1x 50cl)

Don Felipe Camarena was born into a family that had distilled tequila since back in the early 1800’s. As tequila making was in his blood, he started distilling his own tequila, selecting only the ripest plants and using equipment from his family’s original distillery. Don Felipe passed the business to his son, Felipe J. Camarena Orozco, who in turn passed it on to his daughters, Lilianna and Gabriela, and to his son, Carlos, who today, as Master Distiller, maintains the standards of excellence set down by his grandfather, Don Felipe. 

The agave used for Tapatio resposado are hand selected by Jimadores (specialist Mexican agave farmers) and delivered fresh to the distillery where they are hand cut and placed in the oven. The blue agave are slowly baked for four days to transform the raw material into sweet fructose sugar. Once baked, the blue agaves are crushed and pressed in a modified sugar cane mill to extract the sweet agave juice ("Mosto") which is then ready for fermentation. A selected fraction of freshly made "Mosto" is pumped into small wood fermenters to slowly ferment using a special in-house 75 year old yeast culture. Once the "Mosto" ferments into dry "Mosto Muerto" it is ready to be distilled. The Mosto Muerto goes on to be distilled in small 90-250 gallon Copper Alambiques Tequilano Pot Stills. Barely filtered to preserve mouth feel, texture and viscosity of the estate grown blue agave. Before bottling this tequila is aged in stainless steel for 6 months.

The King of Soho Gin - England (1x 70cl)

The King of Soho is an authentic London Dry Gin distilled in the heart of London using traditional methods by an 11th generation master distiller.  A complex spirit the gin is crafted with twelve botanicals to our unique flavour profile. Created as a tribute to the original ‘King of Soho‘ Paul Raymond by his son Howard.

At 42% ABV this super premium gin is bespoke, smooth and full-bodied; soft juniper, coriander, with a high presence of citrus botanicals including grapefruit peel, balanced by angelica root and cassia.

Quadruple distilled, the gin is crafted in small batches using traditional methods in a steel pot still. Twelve botanicals and neutral grain spirit are mixed with water and left to macerate overnight releasing the flavours from the botanicals. The pot is then slowly heated and the essences of the botanicals are carried in the vapours that pass through the ‘swan’s neck’ to the condenser where they are cooled back to liquid form. Once the distillation is complete nothing but water and additional neutral grain spirit are added thus earning it the designation of ‘London Dry Gin’.

Whilst remaining true to its London Dry heritage the gin has a delicate combination of sweetness, citrus and earthiness and a hint of grapefruit bitterness on the back of the palate. The gin has a clean and gentle nose which belies its strength that opens up to reveal classic juniper and pine notes with a refreshing zest of citrus oil. The tangy grapefruit reluctantly gives way to soft warming spice. A modern classic, it is complex yet harmonious and ideal for cocktails and drinks where the spirit is King. With this great tasting gin we celebrate with you the Spirit of Soho!
