Another exceptional rum from one of Mauritius’ finest producers Green Island, Green Island Light is a highly drinkable and wonderfully subtle offering. Grassy and herbaceous on the nose, hints of pepper and sweet honey also come through tempting you to taste it. The flavour is surprisingly creamy for a white rum and has distinct notes of exotic coconut, bitter cocoa and golden syrup, as well as sharp lime and black pepper. It’s this final note than lingers once the drink is done.
Named for the distillery’s number 10 still, Tanqueray No. 10 gin is based upon their classic recipe with some exciting additions. Enjoy the depth of flavour added by additional camomile and fresh grapefruit, lightening the nature of the gin and adding a refreshing edge. With almost sherbet undertones, No.10 has a rounded palate which combines floral juniper with the citrus notes and additional spice from coriander and white pepper. The new flavours create a sweetness which is very welcome and wonderful when mixers are added.
The smooth and light flavour of St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur has kept it popular for many years and has guaranteed that it’s known as one of the finest and first elderflower liqueurs out there. Its aroma is lightly floral, with elderflower and a little sweetness coming through and then on tasting you’ll enjoy a pungent elderflower hit that mellows and is supported by just the right amount of sweetness. Surprisingly flavoursome considering it’s only got one key ingredient – a real triumph.
