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.
Exceptional and painstakingly created by an award-winning micro distiller, Sacred Gin packs a punch and is stylish as well as flavoursome. Its subtle flavours make it wonderful when poured simply over ice or with your favourite tonic and it is juniper led from the start with violet following closely behind. It builds in the mouth with red peppercorn and pine lingering after the last mouthful. The spicy heat which builds is satisfying without being overpowering, adding to the complex flavour profile Sacred offers.
With a bottle design reminiscent of those kept by captains in the 19th century and an instruction from the makers not to even consider mixing it with anything but ice, Pyrat XO is a genuine premium rum. Combining rums aged for as many as fifteen years, Pyrat XO is sweet and viscous on the palate, offering comforting marmalade sweetness. The orange flavour is tempered by sweeter, sugary notes and a medicinal edge reminiscent of cough drops. A truly exceptional rum which should be sipped at leisure.
A young Havana Club offering, this 7 year old Cuban rum gets its amber hues from the bourbon casks it’s matured in. The aroma is reminiscent of first thing in the morning, rich in roasted coffee with vanilla and gingerbread coming through too. Vanilla fudge is the prominent flavour when you take a sip and it’s soon paired with sweet dairy chocolate, fruit trifle and woody oak notes. The end result is a warm, rounded rum which is wonderful when mixed with ginger or lime, or both!
It’s not every day you’ll enjoy the depths of flavour that Patron XO Café offers, bringing together the sweet sharpness of tequila and the bitter, depth of coffee. Made from natural coffee essence Patron XO Café is thinner than you average liqueur and has an appetising flavour not dissimilar to tiramisu. There’s a stickiness about it which is warm in the mouth and brings together the drier notes of espresso and dark chocolate together in harmony. Use it to create a memorable dessert or heady cocktail.
