Composition: 20% Chardonnay. 40% Pinot Noir. 40% Pinot Meunier. Grapes are sourced from around 40 different crus. Minimum 30 months on the lees before disgorgement.

Alcohol: 12.5% Dosage: 10g/1 Tasting Notes: Attractive bouquet, with youthful, delicate, creamy hints and touch of yeasty autolysis. In mouth, lively persistent bubbles with clean, soft creamy fruit, excellent intensity and a lingering finish. Elegant and balanced.
Notes of ripe fruits follow: pear, candied citrus, plum, nectarine and white peach. On the palate, the construction is precise and the substance is velvety. The first impression of creamy roundness progressively allows the linear, tight structure to appear. The flavours of fruit become fresher: mandarin orange and pink grapefruit.
The Godfather of red vermouths. Mouthful of spicy Christmas pudding followed by waves of plums, cherries, cloves, vanilla and finally cinnamon.
With its history in apothecary Peychaud’s Bitters has a strong authentic flavour which was originally dispensed as a medicinal tonic. Of course, the signature cocktail with Peychaud’s is the Sazerac but the subtle yet spicy flavour makes it a great choice for a wide range of cocktails from Old Fashioned to Whiskey Sours and the overriding flavour in each sip is aromatic cloves. Known as a great all-rounder Peychaud’s can be mixed with virtually anything to create a complex flavour profile.
One of Brazil’s favourite Cachaça, Velho Barreiro is delicate on the nose but powerful earthy tones come through when you sip. Ripe marrow and fresh orchard fruit aromas are all present in the nose but when enjoyed neatthe flavour is crisp and clean, with a rounded flavour profile which once again allows the sweet vegetal notes to shine. This also applies when you add it to your favourite exotic cocktail, unsurprisingly a perfect partner for the other essential ingredients in a Caipirinha.
One of the best Vodkas in Europe at the moment with a release of just 4,000 bottles per year. Complex and dense body; starts with soft sweet winter wheat followed by a nutty note and finally a complex dryness that flaunts the rye with a peppery note on the end. Tremendous stuff. DO NOT FREEZE THIS VODKA . It's too damn good.& full of character....The distiller is so dedicated to this product that he will camp out in the grain fields to ensure the correct ripeness.... Ps. Can I have my sleeping bag back ?
Luxury Vodka from France . Soft wheat and creamy vanilla ice cream notes give way to pink peppercorn and lime rind. The finish is silky and rmains on a peppercorn taste for a moment before a solid spice and citrus close. Super slick and well made vodka. Best served ice cold.
