Go back in time to the downright dirty history of the American speakeasy and you’ll find Angostura Orange bitters in a huge number of different drinks. Rising to prominence during prohibition many classic cocktails simplyaren’t complete without a shot of Angostura Orange. A classic example of bitters, one of the few that survived US Prohibition, flavours of orange and geranium are most prominent followed by spicy cardamom and coriander. Shake into your Martini, your Manhattan or even a classic Champagne cocktail.
Using only Quebranta grapes from the Ica area of Peru, Soldeica Pisco is a strongly flavoured crystal clear pisco which has the comforting aroma of cooking bread dough. Oily and nutty scents are also released and the flavour is sweet and light, with a mouthfeel which is slightly oily and smooth. Aromatic flavours are led by herbaceous notes and that bready aroma becomes apparent in the flavour too. Easily drinkable and delicately sweet, each sip of Soldeica Pisco is exceptional.
We all love Gordon’s, whether we’re fans of Ramsay or not. The world’s most popular gin and a perennial bestseller, Gordon’s has a flavour which has come to epitomise quality gin. Juniper-led with peppery spice and sweet lemon zest following closely. Aromas of hops and eucalyptus underpinned by sage and liquorice whirl as you sip and a deeper, earthy aftertaste lingers, with citrus zest still coming through.
