ABSOLUT PEPPAR VODKA


Absolut Peppar was launched in 1986, seven years after Absolut Vodka. Besides being the first flavored vodka in the family, it was also the first flavored vodka in the world. So why pepper? Since vodka and pepper is the main ingredients in a Bloody Mary, it seemed like a good idea to make things easier for the many Bloody Mary bars popping up in Boston, New York and elsewhere at the time. The idea soon turned out as intended, both for bartenders who could now make Instant Bloody Marys, and for all the fans of the drink.

GLENMORANGIE FINEALTA SINGLE MALT SCOTCH HISKY


Glenmorangie Finealta is a painstaking recreation of a recipe dating back to 1903. Matured in a combination of American white oak casks and Spanish Oloroso sherry casks this whisky is unusual for its light touch of peatiness - a reminder of a time when Glenmorangie dried its barley in a peat fired kiln.

Distillery archives show that at this time, Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt was being served at The Savoy in London. Making this whisky a window onto a grander age, where optimistic young souls toasted sweeping changes within Art, fashion, and technology. And where society demanded a drink of both depth and distinction.

Glenmorangie Finealta is the second release in the prestigious Private Edition range: carefully selected, limited edition whiskies chosen from the 'cabinet of curiosities' of Dr Bill Lumsden, head of Glenmorangie Whisky Creation Team.

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.

ABELHA SILVER CACHACA


Abelha Organic Cachaca was created from a simple idea: use the best possible all-natural ingredients and the most traditional artisan methods of production.

The cane is grown 100% organically in the beautiful protected national park of Chapada Diamantina in Bahia, Northern Brazil, where the high, dry climate and sandy soils yield excellent cane for making cachaca.

The team at Abelha believe that quality and soul come from doing as much as possible in the traditional way, by hand, in small batches. 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!). The result is a full-flavoured artisanal cachaca, with an intense fruity nose, fresh sugar cane taste and very smooth finish.

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.

1931 ST. LUCIA RUM


The brand celebrates the inauguration of a new distillery in February 1931 in the Mabouya Valley, near Dennery, in St. Lucia. The Distillery was founded by Denis Barnard and produced rum until 1972 when St. Lucia Distillers was formed out of the merging of the Dennery distillery and the Roseau Distillery. This history with line drawings is represented on the label and outer box of the brand. Every year the label colour will change and the passing of every year will be reflected in the updating of the labeling, closure coin, bar code and outer packaging. Therefore the 2012 release will be different from the 2011 release in that it will "Celebrate 81 years of St. Lucian Rum Making" and so on into the future.

Each bottle is individually numbered. It is hoped the brand will become a collectors' item for connoisseurs of rum and set a benchmark for rums in the Caribbean and wider rum world.
