Here we have the 1881 London Dry Hydro Gin, produced at the Peebles Hydro! With 12 botanicals, hawthorn, birch, fir and citrus are at the core of this one (alongside juniper, of course), so it's a rather leafy tipple. Before bottling, it's blended with water from the distillery's private spring in Peebles. Don't forget a wedge of grapefruit when you have this one in a G&T.
A spiced, rich 16 year old Speyside single malt, 'double matured' in both ex-bourbon and sherry casks. A great Aberlour. Nose: Creamy and delectable, in true Aberlour style. Palate: The sherry and oak are in good harmony. The toasty bourbon notes are harnessed well, the vanilla spices are nicely ingrained in the barley. Finish: Soft and smooth, with waxy honey notes and a barley sweetness. Overall…
The undiluted Honjozo Akashi-Tai is a satisfyingly full-bodied sake. This is the drink the brew masters reach for at the end of a working day. This is perhaps the most direct way to savour the full palate of our sake. The flavour continues to mellow pleasingly over time.
Light burgundy red, with violet nuances. An attractive nose of soft berry fruits, redcurrant, blackberry and strawberry with a hint of leather and vanilla. Soft and medium bodied, with succulent fruit flavour of forest fruits, wild strawberry and black currant, with extremely fine tannins.
Aromatic guava and orange blossom jump from the glass � this Chenin Blanc is dry with hint of sweetness from the ripe apples, peaches and a hint of orange peel on the palate. The elegant crisp finish makes this a fantastic wine for all occasions.
Described by Jim Murray as �a malt that should adorn a shelf in every whisky-drinking home�, anCnoc 12 Years Old is light yet complex. Smooth yet challenging. And each twist and turn delivers a surprise. In fact, this is a dram that has something for everyone.
This is their very accessible Barbera, which Marina describes as having good acidity and a juicy, red fruit flavour profile. This fresh, young style is fermented and stored in concrete before bottling, with plenty of demand locally, as well as internationally.
A German Brandy blended from 25 different wine distillations, then aged for up to 3 years in limousin oak casks. With a deep golden colour, cognac character but fruitier. Grape and oak aroma. Clean, crisp with a rather astringent flavour.
A more recent release from the Auchentoshan distillery, replacing the previous staple 10 year old, this 12 year old bottling exhibits the new, slightly Imperial aesthetics Auchentoshan have rebranded themselves with.
A bright export beer, sparkling and fresh at the same time, brewed with noblest raw materials. This high-class product of the Old Bavarian brewing art. A great treat for every beer expert. Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops.
With a brewery dating back to 1328, Augustiner-Br�u is the oldest brewer in Munich and the last remaining independent brewer in the historic city. 'Helles' means 'light-coloured', and Augustiner Helles lives up to its name. Pale gold, bright and effervescent, it's a fantastic example of a pale German lager. Breadiness and light malts are balanced by just a touch of hop bitterness, making this refr…
Pale gold in colour with a fine mousse, the wine is aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is well balanced and shows great finesse and complexity. Pinot Noir gives the wine richness and a long finish while Chardonnay, from the finest soils of the C�te des Blancs, adds delicacy, liveliness and freshness. Pinot Meunier, mainly from the Marne Valley, gives the wine an appealing fruitiness and round…
A bone-dry Champagne from Ayala, a historic house owned by the Bollinger family. Made using the same base wine as the Brut Majeur, this food-friendly wine is an excellent match for Thai cuisine, as well as oysters or sushi.
Ayala Rose demonstrates a dazzling light cherry center with a sensitive copper flicker, upgraded by an excellent accessory of fine and enduring bubbles. On the nose, the wine uncovers an enticing bunch of red natural fruits (strawberries, raspberries, a hint of cassis) improved by the freshness and the artfulness conveyed by the high extent of Chardonnay. On the sense of taste, Rose Majeur is vino…
The elegant and approachable Balblair 12 Year Old is the first whisky in the Balblair Collection and has been matured in a combination of double-fired American oak casks and ex-bourbon casks. The result is a whisky with a warm, complex character and a sweet, citrusy aroma. The palate offers notes of oranges, honey and cinnamon before a long, creamy finish with hints of vanilla and leather.
Aged in ex-bourbon casks before being finished in sherry casks, Double Wood is an excellent example of what the Balvenie distillery can craft, even at 12 years. Nose: Gristy, supple nuttiness, grapey Palate: Sweet with good body. The bourbon characters develop; gentle spice with a little vanilla, a balancing peat lurking quietly in the substrata. Finish: Dry, spicy, beautifully warming.
