Better known for its bitters and rums, the House of Angostura also makes an amaro. With notes of cinnamon, dark chocolate and Angostura bitters, this can be enjoyed on its own, with ice, or in cocktails.
Cesari has hit its stride with the Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Il Bosco. This is an opulent and layered red wine with savoury notes of saddle leather and exotic spice that drive the wine's dark core. This Amarone manages a careful balance with beautiful precision. In the mouth, it is smooth and rich with a deep textural impact. The blend is 80/20 Corvina and Rondinella.
A very high-strength overproof pot-distilled molasses rum from Mauritius, Tilambic is aged for up to seven years. The 151 represents the strength in US proof, which means that this rum is 75.5% abv and as such should be used extremely carefully and not ingested neat.
Deutz Hommage a William Deutz Parcelles d'Ay is created from two estate vineyards adjacent to the house itself in Ay: Cote Glaciere (1.92 ha)and Meurtet (2.42ha) The new creation by CEO Fabrice Rosset is a blend of 100% Pinot Noir and is a hommage to the founder of the house. The last time Champagne Deutz created a Blanc de Noirs was in 1975. Usually the wines from these two vineyards are blended into Deutz's other cuvees, but Michel Davesne was so impressed with it he decided to put it on it's own again. Only 6,000 bottles have been made and only 600 of them to be released in the UK.
A lip-smacking expression from 1423's Compañero range, based around rum from Trinidad and flavoured with plenty of orange alongside various tropical deliciousness. Well suited to enjoying alongside particularly sweet puddings, we reckon.
Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel is bottled straight from a selected barrel by Gerry's Wines & Spirits at the Jack Daniels distillery on 12th July 2019 . Each barrel is hand selected to ensure the flavour is absolutely perfect before bottling. The nose is rich with toasted oak notes as well as warm corn and cereal-inspired sweetness. There’s a note of smoke in there which is brought out strongly in the flavour and teams beautifully with nut oils and a spicy aniseed depth. A hint of citrus comes through in the end note and keeps you going back for another taste.
