The famous Dominican herbal rum liquor with mythical power. Hispaniola Mamajuana is the true taste of Dominican lifestyle.
Carefully chosen rum, together with honey and white wine are the base of this fabulous liquor. This mix was then laid on a secret combination of the endemic Mamajuana herbs, roots, leaves and spices.

Story tells that it was the Taino Indians, in their search for active substances mother nature had to offer us, who first experimented with this fabulous Mamajuana recipe already 500 years ago. Rumor converted it in a much appreciated liquor of great flavor.

Familia Camarena Tequila Reposado is 100% Blue Agave sourced from the Los Altos Highlands region of Jalisco, and distilled at Casa Camarena. This Reposado is aged for 2 months in both new and used American oak.
Fine Tequila doesn't happen by chance. For the Camarena Family, Tequila is a legend more than a century in the making.

In 1860, the Camarenas began cultivating fine altos Blue Agave for Tequila, soon becoming one of Mexico's top producers. Today, the family grows more than 3 million Agave plants, some at an altitude of 7,700 feet in the world's highest Agave fields. The fortuitous combination of elevation, a temperate growing cycle and indigenous red earth in Jalisco's highland region translates to delicate flavor and character in each bottle of Familia Camarena Tequila.

By 1938, Don Agustin Camarena founded the family's first Tequila distillery, Casa Tequilera Casco Viejo (soon to be renamed Casa Camarena), in the town of Arandas. Decades later, Don Agustin's daughter-in-law, Doña Elena Herrera Orendain - the great, great granddaughter of the legendary Don Jose Cuervo - became Managing Director of Casa Tequilera Casco Viejo in 1970. Today, Doña Elena is the Camarena Family matriarch and Casa Tequilera Casco Viejo is among the world's top four Tequila distilleries by volume.

Herbsaint first appeared in 1934. It was the creation of J.M. Legendre and Reginald Parker of New Orleans, who learned how to make absinthe while in France during World War I.
It first went on sale following the repeal of Prohibition, and was unique in its category as an absinthe substitute, as opposed to a pastis.
Herbsaint was originally produced under the name "Legendre Absinthe", although it never contained Grande Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium).
The Federal Alcohol Control Administration soon objected to Legendre's use of the word "absinthe", so the name was changed to "Legendre Herbsaint". The Sazerac Company bought J.M. Legendre & Co. in June 1949. Herbsaint was bottled at 120 proof and 100 proof for many years, but the recipe was modified in the mid 1950s, when Herbsaint began being bottled at 100 proof and 90 proof.
By the early 1970s the 100 proof variation was discontinued, and the 90 proof version remains the predominant Herbsaint available today.
In December 2009, the Sazerac Company reintroduced J.M. Legendre's original 100 proof recipe as Herbsaint Original.

Cognac of around 40 years of age is something of a rarity. Cellar Master Jean-Philippe Bergier has selected and blended this cognac in collaboration with selected "Bouilleur de Cru" families in Grande Champagne. This limited geographical area is in the heart of Cognac. The soil and climate there are perfect for producing unique and exclusive cognacs that need to mature for a long time before drinking. In this instance only the Ugni Blanc grape has been used. Grande Champagne accounts for only about 18% of total cognac production. This Grande Champagne Très Vieille Réserve has been matured in oak casks from Limousin and only seven 350-litre casks are available.

Death’s Door Gin has a surprisingly simple botanical mix of organic juniper berries, coriander and fennel. Using juniper berries that grow wild on Washington Island with coriander and fennel sourced from within the state, Death’s Door Spirits is able to showcase how complimentary and complex simple expressions can be.
Death’s Door Gin employs a 60:40 mix of organic Washington Island wheat and organic malted barley from Chilton, Wisconsin.
This Gin has a full London Dry flavor without all of the bitterness because of our distillation process and the grains we use. In fact, you can taste all three botanicals: loaded juniper berries up front; spicy, citrusy notes from the coriander seeds in the mid-palate; and a soft, cooling finish provided by the fennel seeds.
Death’s Door is big enough to stand up to classic or vintage cocktail treatment, but soft enough to be enjoyed on the rocks or as a dry martini

GLENFIDDICH 12 YO Single Malt Scoch Whisky

Excellent single-malt whisky from the Glenfiddich distillery (which in the Scottish language means “Deer Valley”) is located in a picturesque valley of Fiddich river. The secret of the taste of this 12-year-old whisky lies in its distillate being composed on the basis of cereal and crystal-clear water derived exclusively from Robbie Dhu springs, as well as its 12 year minimum maturing process in oak casks, previously holding Cuban rum, USA bourbon or Spanish sherry. The mild taste of fresh pear and oak flavor are distinguishing marks of this whisky.

A blend produced exclusively from Grande Champagne, the first cognac growth, and aged for many long years, reveals a remarkably delicate elegance.

Its bouquet is characterised by the powerfulness and length of the intensely floral aromas, backed by the distinctive vanilla of its rancio. Its mellow roundness on the palate blossoms into a full-bodied fruitiness, with a slight, harmonious hint of liquorice. Pale & Dry X.O comes draped in extremely bright, light amber robes, clear and shot through with flashes of gold, that subsequently reveal its remarkably delicate elegance and distinction.

Earthy aromas include lemon balm, tarragon and star anise; louching brings anise to the foreground.

Crystal-clear Mamont is like no other vodka. Outstandingly smooth, delicate and rich toned, its secret lies in uniquely Siberian ingredients and craftsmanship.

Production begins with exceptionally pure water from Siberian artesian wells, filtered through layers of volcanic rock. Grains of finest local wheat are carefully selected. These are painstakingly distilled again and again. A unique treatment with Siberian birch charcoal and triple filtration allow the vodka to achieve a purity, clarity and smoothness close to perfection.

As a special touch, cedar nuts are added as they used to be eaten by the mammoths who roamed the area. Today, like the unique tusk-shaped bottle, they are a reminder of Mamont's Siberian heritage.

LUCID Absinthe

Lucid is formulated by world renowned absinthe expert T.A. Breaux, and is distilled in strict accordance to traditional French methods. lucid is crafted in the historic Combier distillery, founded in 1834 and designed by Gustave Eiffel in the fabled Loire Valley of France. Each bottle of lucid is carefully prepared by skilled craftsmen, using ancient copper absinthe alembics. Unlike most contemporary imitators, lucid is distilled entirely from spirits and European herbs, and uses no artificial additives, oils, or dyes. lucid recalls the rich tradition of Absinthe, and is crafted using a full measure of Grande Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), Green Anise, Sweet Fennel, and other fine European herbs traditionally used in making fine Belle Époque absinthe.

In accordance with the views of absinthe experts in Europe and the U.S., a genuine absinthe is always distilled directly from a mixture of whole herbs in alcohol, which should be a neutral spirit of agricultural origin. It should never be cold mixed from industrial extracts or steam distilled essences or oils. To be true to tradition, the herbs must include Grande Wormwood (Artemesia absinthium), as well as European green anise and sweet fennel, and can include other culinary herbs. An authentic absinthe vert receives its traditional green color directly from the whole herbs, and should never be colored with artificial colorants or chemicals (e.g., FD&C dyes). Genuine absinthe should never contain sugar as bottled, so it should not be classified as a Liqueur. Finally, a quality, genuine French absinthe will always contain a higher concentration of alcohol to preserve its herbal content and natural green color, 60-72% being typical.

Lucid contains a full measure of Grande Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium). By contrast, many other products with a claimed relationship to absinthe only contain Southernwood (Artemisia abrotanum – sometimes referred to as Southern Wormwood). Southernwood bears little resemblance to Grande Wormwood and has a completely different flavor and chemistry. Genuine absinthe, such as the absinthe made during the Belle Époque period in France, has always been made with Grande Wormwood as a key ingredient. In fact, the word “absinthe” itself is derived from the scientific name for Grande Wormwood – Artemisia absinthium.

Distilled near a world benchmark for air purity, 42 degrees below the equator and from GM Free wheat from the purist wheat-fields in the world.
Distilled three times, then the spirit is washed in spring water, reducing the level of alcohol to 6%. This cleans any remaining impurities. It is then distilled a fourth time to create totally pure spirit. This is high saturation distilling, with New Zealand Spring water, which is unique to 42 Below.
42 Below is a smooth, full, grain-based vodka similar in style to vodkas produced in Scandinavian countries, which differ from the potato and rye-based vodkas typical of Russia and Poland. A characteristic of grain-based vodkas is that they have a smoother taste than their rye or potato-based counterparts.

BOYD & BLAIR American Vodka

This is a small batch vodka made in Pennsylvania from locally grown potatoes by two guys using a copper still. The result is a softer, creamier style of vodka that is more mild on the palate. The quality of the spirit is obvious upon the first sip - this is vodka made by people who really care about quality and precision. F. Paul Pacult's Spirits Journal has ranked the Boyd & Blair Vodka as the 22nd best spirit in the world, making it the Spirits Journal's top ranked Vodka. Pacult opines, "Wow, this aroma comes flying out of the glass in waves of white potato, starch, and parchment; seven more minutes of aeration don't greatly alter the aromatic profile, but there is a noticeable deepening of the established scents, especially the raw white potato element. Entry is nothing short of luscious, semisweet, chewy, and smooth; midpalate adds cocoa bean, maple, and honey. Aftertaste is graceful, solid, and simply delicious. The best small-scale vodka I've had since the 45th Parallel. So sumptuous and tasty that it's spectacular tasted neat.

In the spring of 1806, London wine & spirits merchant James Gosling set out from England aboard the chartered clipper Mercury with 10,000 dollars of merchandise bound for the Virginias. The voyage was a difficult one. Ninety-one consecutive days of calm left the crew and passengers in dire straits and the charter of Mercury was fast running out.
The ship eventually made port in St. Georges, Bermuda, where Gosling and his family decided to set up shop rather than press on to America.

James Gosling opened a shop on King's Parade, St George's in December 1806. To this day the company remains the oldest surviving business in Bermuda and is still a family concern.
The corks were secured in place with the use of black sealing wax, prompting people to refer to the brand as "Black Seal."

Only the finest young wines end up creating Antique; carefully and slowly distilled in classic pot stills, the resulting cognac was left to develop in Limousin oak barrels. The rich, complex spices and velvety roundness of the style were drawn from this maturation period. Only once each cognac was aged to perfection was the final Antique blend created.

La Clandestine is hand-crafted in Couvet, Switzerland, the birthplace of absinthe. The brand heritage dates back to 1935, and its small-batch production methods go back to the origins of absinthe in the 18th century. White (or “blanche”) absinthe first exists as a clear spirit before a second coloring step transforms it into green absinthe. Thus, blanche absinthes are the true originals. When absinthe was wrongly banned in Switzerland in 1910, farmers and their wives secretly made absinthe at home for family and friends, returning to the clear style, perhaps to avoid detection. La Clandestine, the world’s most loved blanche, comes from this era and was first distilled by Charlotte Vaucher in 1935. In 2000, Claude-Alain Bugnon received the recipe from Charlotte’s nephew and continued illegal production until absinthe could once again be made openly. Claude-Alain and his wife Karine make La Clandestine in Couvet, the small village in the foothills of the Alps where absinthe was first distilled commercially in the second half of the 18th century. They use the famed local Grande wormwood as well as the unique Swiss savoir faire that comes from well over 200 years of continuous manufacture of absinthe. Claude-Alain is recognized as Europe’s leading absinthe distiller, with more awards than any other, and his absinthes are hand-sold to some of the top bars and retailers in 25 countries.

U'LUVKĄ Polish Vodka

U'Luvka is distilled in small batches, by craftsmen, from the finest Polish rye, wheat and barley.
It is fresh, clean and elegant on the nose, with distinct floral notes.
You will find it creamy and lightly buttery in character, with impressive sweet, savoury and spicy flavours, aniseed freshness and a long vibrant grain finish.
U'Luvka is both new and yet old at the same time. It has roots going back to the alchemists of the 17th century Polish Royal Court.
In those heady days, the tradition was to drink vodka from glasses without bases. This had one unfortunate side effect that the glasses could not be put down until the entire contents had been drunk.
Legend has it that the Court was almost permanently intoxicated and affairs of state were grinding to a halt. Sendivogius, the genius court alchemist, was begged by the King and Queen to distil a a spirit of such exceptional quality that the court could continue to drink all night and work all day. Sendivogius worked his magic and created a Royal elixir of rare quality. The court was saved, and just enough was never again too much.
Alchemy is all about transformation and this is the essence of U'Luvka. Working with Poland's finest modern alchemists, U'Luvka has been recreated the 'unfathomable spell' the result of which is yours to enjoy.
So propose a toast with U'Luvka that encapsulates the ancient and universal traditions and the three abiding principles of U'Luvka, 'To Friendship, Love and Pleasure

Master of rums and the flagship of the house, Santa Teresa 1796 results from a careful blend of Santa Teresa’s finest aged spirits ranging from 4 to 35 years that is then further aged in a style borrowed from the Spanish sherry producers. Santa Teresa 1796 is the first premium añejo rum in the world to be aged in the Solera method: a cascade process in four levels of oak barrels that combines barrel ageing and cask "crianzas." The blend of añejo (aged) rums enters the top barrels and is aged until it reaches a desired level of maturity. Half of the contents of the top barrels are then transferred to the oakbarrels below that have also had half of their contents removed and transferred to the barrels below and so on until the fourth set of barrels. When the cascade is concluded, the golden liquid is transferred to large Limousin oak casks that, again, are only ever half emptied thus producing even softer and rounder rum. This system is unique in Venezuela and the Rum industry.
