Wild Turkey 101 has been aged for eight years at a much higher proof than they’re traditional bourbon. This delivers a more intense, alcohol-heavy nose but also a deeper, more complex flavour. You wouldn’t know it from the nose as it’s light and unassuming but once you sip you’ll taste the depth of sweetness within this bourbon alongside the toasty alcohol burn. Pepper, caramel and honey are stand out flavours in this intense bourbon and it’s certainly one to remember.
No.3 is the London Dry Gin distilled to a proprietary recipe of Berry Bros. & Rudd, London’s oldest wine and spirit merchant.
The name No.3 refers to the address in St James’s Street, London: our home since 1698. No.3 was created to be the last word in gin for a Dry Martini.
With juniper at its heart, it unashamedly celebrates the integrity and character of a classic London Dry Gin: six perfectly balanced botanicals distilled in traditional copper pot stills.

One of the most famous white wines in the world and one for which louis jadot is justifiably famous; a lovely rich wine that shows the true delights of chardonnay, soft and elegant with a rich mouth feel, delicate use of oak and good acid balance.
When crafted by a skilled producer, Chablis is worth the countless column inches and plaudits heaped on the region and its wines. And in this case, it’s crafted by the team at Albert Bichot, makers of fine Burgundy since 1831. Although the family have a proud heritage to look back to, they’re focussed firmly on the future. They practise sustainable agriculture, ever mindful of the legacy they leave for future generations. The care they exhibit in the vineyard follows through to the winery, which in turn shines through to the wine in your glass. This fine Chablis was aged on its lees for 10 months to add creamy complexity to this elegant, pure fruit white, brimming with green apple and citrus. It makes a fine apéritif or partner for seafood.
Mendel is an old bodega situated at Drummond, Mendoza, built in 1928 and which was bought by the Sielecki family in 2002. They employed the highly respected Roberto de la Mota to make the wines. The wines are quite European in style, firm and structured as opposed to the more usual soft and fruity style, and are designed to develop in bottle. These wines are best enjoyed with food and benefit from decanting 30 minutes before drinking.
