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 (1x 70cl)

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.

Crossbill Small Batch Highland Gin - Scotland (1x 70cl)

Crossbill Gin is a celebration of juniper and rosehip, two bold and fresh Highland botanicals. Made using only 100% Scottish hand picked botanicals, they have re-established a long lost tradition of harvesting Scottish juniper. This creates a distinct taste evocative of the ancient pine forests where juniper has grown for centuries. 

In the 18th century Scotland’s fragrant juniper was exported to Holland to produce Jenever (gin's great, great grandfather). This tradition died out 200 years ago but Crossbill’s founder Jonathan was captivated by the idea of reviving Scottish juniper harvesting to produce a new gin.

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!

Gozio Amaretto (1x70cl)

The method used to produce Gozio Amaretto doesn’t fall within the usual liqueur methodology, it’s a new production process based on a secret formula that has led Gozio Amaretto to be a strikingly different liqueur of superior quality.

It is not a sticky liquid but a smooth pale liqueur. Gozio Amaretto is produced using only the highest quality natural ingredients: alcohol, burnt sugar and the pure essence of various selected fruits coming from four continents, left in infusion for at least 60 days.

Only the best quality bitter almonds are used in the recipe to enhance its bouquet, aroma and taste. There are no artificial aromas, extracts or distilled additives added.

Hills & Harbour Gin - Scotland (1x 70cl)

Galloway is the home of Hills & Harbour gin and is a special corner of Scotland. Surrounded by forests and unspoilt coastlines, it’s the perfect larder for their ingredients. Nestled on the edge of Newton Stewart this modern grain to glass distillery pumps out gallons of tasty stuff and delivers panoramic views over the Galloway Hills.

This is the smooth and vibrant Hills & Harbour Gin which offers a taste of Galloway. With local Noble Fir needles and Bladderwrack Seaweed, it leads with juniper and is balanced with hints of forest fir, tropical fruit, citrus spice, tangy sherbet and a subtle scent of the shore. Balanced and versatile it serves well with almost any garnish, which means you can get creative and serve the gin the way you like it.

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.

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”.

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.

£28.50

Maison Janneau VSOP 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. 

Symbolic of the Janneau house style, the VSOP is a perfect blend of carefully selected eaux-de-vie, some matured for up to 20 years in new oak casks in their ancient cellars. The VSOP is a blend of spirits distilled from white wines from the Baco grape, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grape varieties, produced in the two main areas of the Appellation Controlée: Bas Armagnac and Tenaréze. It is also a combination of two different types of distillation: a double distillation in pot stills and a single distillation in a continuous still.

Bright amber colour. Aromas of dried lilac, honey, figs, and toasted nuts follow through on a lively, tangy entry to a fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body with white chocolate and caramel notes. Finishes with a lingering honeyed golden raisin toasted and spice fade. A delicious appetizing Armagnac that will be great on its own, in cocktails, or even with food.

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.

£30.00

Masons Original Dry Yorkshire Gin - England (1x 70cl)

Masons Yorkshire Gin was created by Karl & Cathy Mason, gin enthusiasts without any prior knowledge of the industry who set out to produce a drink that stood out from the crowd – a unique gin with more character and more taste – not just a different label.

Distilled in 200 litre batches, each bottle bears its own hand written batch and bottle number. With its traditional distillation method, Harrogate Spring Water and just the right balance of juniper, citrus elements and secret botanicals.

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.
