CHOPIN RYE VODKA


Only the finest golden rye, grown naturally in the Podlasie countryside, is used to produce Chopin Rye. There are no secrets and no additives – just rye, yeast and purified well water, which are transformed into premium vodka through a method that has changed little over the centuries, including the use of a traditional copper column still.

Harvested locally and stored in silos at the historic Chopin distillery, the rye is first pressure-cooked to create a “mash.” The mash is left to ferment for three days, then distilled four times to create a spirit that is almost 100% alcohol. At Chopin’s bottling plant in nearby Siedlce, this spirit is blended with artesian well water and filtered five times to create the world’s finest rye vodka. Packaged in the iconic frosted bottle that bears the image of the brand’s inspiration, Polish composer Frederic Chopin, it is topped with a distinctive red label that distinguishes it as Chopin Rye.

CapRock Organic Vodka is a straight vodka made with Demeter-certified biodynamic grapes grown at the distillery on Jack Rabbit Hill. The grapes are using native yeasts that are naturally present on the grapes at harvest.

Glycerol is the stuff that makes CapRock's mouthfeel and finish so round and rich. Also, the grapes are fermented and distilled whole, including skins and seeds, contributing soft fruit tannins to the long, textured finish.

KNOB CREEK 9YO KENTYCKY BOURBON


Knob Creek bourbon was created in the style of turn of the century bourbon. Knob Creek embodies the bold flavor that has made Kentucky famous for bourbon. Aged the longest of the Small Batch Bourbons – 9 years – in charred American white oak, it strikes the senses with a maple sugar aroma, distinctive sweetness and rich, full-bodied flavor.

Knob Creek Bourbon was named after a little creek that runs just south of the distillery, the same creek that ran by Abraham Lincoln's childhood home. Booker Noe, 6th generation Beam and master distiller emeritus created Knob Creek to reflect the strength, flavor, care, and patience that defined pre-prohibition bourbon. The bottle embodies the handmade look and feel of the turn-of-the century bourbon as well. It is reminiscent of a bootlegger's flask with newspaper scrawled on the label, harkening back to the decade's old custom of wrapping bottles in newspaper at the distillery.

HAVANA CLUB SELECTION DE MAESTROS RUM


Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros represents the ultimate and most perfected expression of the collective involvement of six experienced Maestros Roneros, led by the talented Don Jose Navarro.

In order to create "Seleccion de Maestros", the Maestros Roneros select together the finest aged rums that one by one had been put aside for their truly exceptional quality.

Afterwards, these prestige hand picked rums are blended, then put to age again in specially selected barrels, each chosen for the powerful, aromatic potential of the wood, in which they will develop their character and intensity.

At the end of this final stage in the ageing process, the Maestros Roneros get together to select the rums that will compose the final blend, which will be bottled straight from the barrel at 45% proof. This unique finishing process, the "Cuban Barrel Proof", gives the rum its unequalled aromatic bouquet and an exceptional quality.

Already recognized as a high-quality, ultra-premium rum, Seleccion de Maestros has been awarded a Gold medal by three of the world's most influential spirits competitions: the San Francisco World Spirits Award, the Beverage Testing Institutes International Review of Spirits and the International Wine and Spirit Competition.

BASIL HAYDEN'S 8YO BOURBON


Basil Hayden's is unequalled in that it utilizes twice as much rye in it as the other bourbons in the Collection. Enriched by a hint of peppermint, it impresses with notes of pepper balanced by slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish. Aged eight years at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's has a broad appeal and is equally enjoyable alone or in cocktails such as a Juicy Basil and Basil Bubbly.

The eponymous Basil Hayden's® Bourbon dates back to 1796, when Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. created a recipe unlike any other. He used a traditional corn base, but mixed in small grains in his mash to capture the spicy flavor of rye and complement the sweet smoothness of corn. More than 200 years later, Basil Hayden's is a singular bourbon that bridges the flavor of rye whiskies and small batch bourbons together.

AGAVE LOCO PEPER CURED TEQUILA


100% Agave Reposado tequila from Jalisco, Mexico aged in used bourbon barrels for up to six months.
Agave Loco is a tequila that is smoother and more flavorful than any other tequila on the market because it has been "Pepper Cured", a curing process that was discovered by looking for the most interesting tequila from Mexico. The benefits of this process are that it takes all the rough edges off the taste of the tequila and gives a full Jalapeno and Serrano pepper flavor.


The legend has it that a man found a jar of peppers in the back room of his grandmothers home, when he tried one he discovered a pepper with a flavor that was different than he had ever experienced before. The peppers had a zest and flavor that was very familiar to him but he could not place the taste. When he questioned his grandmother she told him that she preferred to preserve (Cure) her peppers in tequila rather than vinegar as is the norm. She felt that the tequila gave the peppers a sweet and spicy flavor that was to her liking.

At that time the man's uncle spoke up and stated that the tequila was better also and that he should try it. Upon drinking the tequila the man had to agree that it was the most flavorful tequila he had ever had.

They distil in a traditional copper pot still with a capacity of only 400 litres and all processes are carefully monitored by experienced eyes (and noses!).

HAYMAN'S OLD TOM GIN


The name “Old Tom Gin” comes from what may be the first example of a beverage vending machine in England.

Old Tom Gin is a botanically-intensive and lightly sweetened style of gin that was particularly popular in the 18th Century and was the Gin of Choice in the 19th Century.
The style of Old Tom is renown for its botanical intensity balanced by a light sweetness, which imparts a more complex experience than other styles of gin.
Old Tom Gin was traditionally made from grain spirit and distilled in a pot still with Juniper berries being the most dominant botanical in the recipe.
Juniper was seen as blind allegiance to William of Orange, King of England 1689-1702 who introduced England to Juniper- based Dutch Gin or “Genever”.

Distillation methods in the 18th Century did not produce a particularly clean or pure spirit and initially Old Tom Gin was lightly sweetened to mask any impurities.
In comparison to London Dry Gin, the Old Tom style delivers a more rounded taste experience with depth. The distinctive Old Tom Gin profile is the key ingredient in classic gin cocktails such as the Martinez, Tom Collins and Ramos Gin Fizz.

“A subtle harmony of sandalwood, dried apricots and mushroom. This voluptuous ‘Fine Champagne’ lingers in the mouth with great depth and length on the palate.”

APEROL


Aperol was launched by the Barbieri company, based in Padua, in 1919 on the occasion of the Padua Exhibition - introducing the revolutionary idea of an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11%.

After the second world war, it really took off, becoming a major success in Italian homes and bars. In the early nineties, the Barbieri company was acquired by Barbero in 1891 and Aperol has developed even further.

Aperol's unique flavour and colour is achieved through a subtle blend of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and an array of herbs and roots - using a secret recipe that has been unchanged since its first creation in 1919.
