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 75cl)

“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 colour of this 3 year old is dark topaz. The aromas are an elegant fusion of vinous and spicy notes, harmonious notes of wood, hint of cocoa. 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.

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.

The palate is subtle and balanced. The flavours confirm the characteristics brought forward by the aromas.

Colonsay Wild Island Botanic 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. Wild Island Botanic Gin is bottled in Scotland at 43.7% abv using pure Scottish water.

The six native plants which they hand gather on Colonsay in Spring and Summer are: lemon balm, wild water mint, meadowsweet, sea buckthorn, heather flowers and bog myrtle. These provide the heart and soul of Wild Island Botanic Gin. The British wheat that they use, along with a base of ten other botanicals, led by juniper berries along with coriander seeds, sweet Mediterranean lemon peel, orange peel, liquorice, cinnamon bark, angelica root, orris root, cassia bark and nutmeg, provide body and depth to the gin.

This is a truly unique premium gin of the very highest quality.

A cocktail to try with Wild Island Gin is a 'Southside'. Created in Prohibition-era US and named after the notorious 'Southside' district of Chicago, this cocktail is uncomplicated and delicious and was reputed to be a favourite of Al Capone.

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.

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!

Fernet Branca (1x70cl)

Colours, aromas, flavours and … properties! The Fernet-Branca recipe is a special journey through the 27 herbs, roots and spices of its special secret and one of a kind formula. Every single herb represents a distinct universe, experience and discovery. The ingredients used include Cinchona, Rhubarb, Chamomile, Cinnamon, Linden, Iris, Saffron, Zedoary, Galingale and Myrrh.

The discovery of Fernet-Branca is an adventurous journey amidst flavours and emotions. It is a unique journey that is bound to establish a new and intense relationship that will last a lifetime. It will according to the team at Fernet Branca take "Three sips to get to know each other and be together forever."

1. The first sip is rapture and the sudden discovery of something unexpected: truth reveals itself. The natural bitter taste of Fernet-Branca and its herbs presents itself firmly to the palate, and like the beginning of a great novel, reveals its quality while concealing its secrets. Just when you start to think that it might be best to give up, you are drawn by the curiosity to have another sip.

2.  The start of an engaging journey, where you discover the wide range of spices that interact harmoniously and secretly. The palate senses the depth of the flavour from the botanical herbs and spices and begins, on its own, to recompose the structure of the Fernet-Branca taste. The nose picks up the myrrh and its unexpected softness, while the bitter taste becomes sophisticated, tannic and pleasantly balsamic.

3. As you take the third sip the pleasure remains and is emboldened by the challenges of your journey thus far. The pleasure highlights the most reassuring aromas of the spices and freshness of the herbs, and finally unveils the exotic side to Fernet-Branca. The experience has now transformed and the sweeter and more delicate notes of the plants and flowers come to the fore, leaving the bitter taste in the background. The olfactory perception is completed and the palate is ready to welcome new discoveries from all future sips.

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.
