Woodford Reserve is a very specific combination of corn, rye and malt creating a cereal-rich flavour. It’s unusual as its triple distilled and matured for six years, creating a smooth yet punchy flavour which is perfect for bringing out the best in your next Old-Fashioned cocktail. Thick and creamy both in aroma and taste, notes of honey, deep spice, fresh leather and cocoa come together to create a flavour you won’t be able to forget. Toast oak spice is your main reminder of the drink when you finish.
Believed to be the first ever example of vermouth and credited with creating the word, Carpano is one of the world’s most recognisable and esteemed producers of this sweet, spicy drink. Carpano Biano Vermut offers a powerful hit of herbs and spices combined with a hint of vanilla and a rich, sweetness which creates an almost festive atmosphere. The richness is offset by the powerful spiciness, making this an enjoyable pre-dinner drink.
Appleton Estate 8 Year Rum blends together 20 different rums to create a dark sugar concoction which is intensely enjoyable. The sugary nature of this Appleton offering is tempered by warm honey and despite the seeming sweetness it is sharp on the tongue with a satisfying hit of citrus peel and caramelised apple. Caramel and hazelnut flavours come through on tasting and this one rum that should be enjoyed neat.
