Four Roses Original is one of the most popular offerings from the Four Roses collection and is considered a bar essential for many cocktail maestros. Sophisticated and smooth hints of pear and llow Labeapple come through alongside floral aromas and a flavour which is deep in honey and spice. Its soft finish is simply begging to be mixed in with other flavours to create cocktails of real class and refinement.
Tapatio Blanco is one of those choice silver tequilas that has an exceptional flavour which you’ll find hard to stop sipping. The pepperiness of this tequila is really up there with the best, apparent from first opening in the nose where it’s combined with earthy hay and subtle herbal tones. The flavour too is awash with earthiness with the sweetness of agave paired naturally with cinnamon, charred vegetables and sharp hits of black pepper. The end is satisfyingly salty with that earthiness remaining.
Combining the same classic ingredients for nearly 200 years, Angostura bitters are a key ingredient in many famous cocktails, often paired with gin and rum to great effect. Despite the name, its flavour is not bitter at all, with the strong aromatic flavour, powerful with gentian and spices. Many cocktails simply wouldn’t be the same without a dash or two of Angostura bitters and it’s the complex herbaceous nature of the product which allows it to offer additional depth and dimension to cocktails.
With a couple of awards under its belt El Dorado 3 Year rum is a fine example of a mixing rum which a crispness that lends itself to sharp citrus cocktails and even exotic punches. Coconut is ever-present from first opening and hints of sugary sweet icing sugar are also apparent in the nose. On drinking El Dorado is surprisingly dry with notes of intense brown sugar, a nutty edge and of course that coconut coming through strongly. The end note blends vanilla with the coconut for a fresh finish.
Arette Blanco is a premium silver tequila, launched in 2007 and highly thought of on the drinks scene. Bottled on site in Jalisco and made of 100% agave, Arette Blanco is an exceptional silver tequila full of fresh flavours, spicy hints and a cheeky character in which you can pick out each single flavour note. Great body and wonderful for sipping or mixing into a wide range of different cocktails and long drinks.
