The world of Absinthe is one of legends and mystery; it has been told that Dr. Pierre Ordinaire in 1792 created the first true Absinthe recipe in rural France. Shortly after the French Revolution, Dr. Ordinaire traveled around the Val de Travers on his faithful horse, Rocket, and sold his Absinthe initially as an all-purpose cure-all. Although his intention was medicinal, Absinthe rapidly became the recreational drink of choice. Before he knew it, Absinthe traveled across the café tables from the south of France to the tables of Montmartre in Paris. The legendary and mystical Absinthe ended up gracing the lips of artists, musicians, writers and poets alike, ultimately becoming the symbol of the free and easy bohemian spirit for the masses.
This brings us to today's era, where Absinthe Ordinaire recalls one of the original and most commercially successful Absinthe recipes during the glittering era of La Belle Époque Paris. Absinthe Ordinaire is still handcrafted in rural southern France using only the highest quality artisanal distillation methods and ingredients. Botanicals include anise, sweet fennel, mugwort, star anise, balm, peppermint and of course the legendary and notorious Wormwood, also known as artemisia absinthium - Absinthe Ordinaire boasts superior authenticity.

South Sea is a blonde ‘agricole style’ sipping rum crafted with the free-run juice from the first pressing of hand-selected Queensland sugar cane crops using environmentally friendly practices. Distilled as two separate batches, one in a pot still the other in a column these are than blended before laying to rest and finished in old and new American oak for no less than two years allowing nature to work its magic. Finally, it receives a final polish before bottling out of the barrel, ensuring that there is minimal interference and no charcoal filtering to strip the flavour prior to bottling in the unique striking bottles. The result is a rum with subtle smoky and vanilla notes that is sweet and creamy on the nose with a long, dry finish.
The complex nuances in both flavour and creation introduce a remarkable new rum experience demanding attention.

In the late 19th century during the Belle Époque era in Paris, the renowned Absinthe culture was at its height of infamy. Absinthe was the trademark drink of artists like Degas, Manet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and Oscar Wilde. To recall this glorious time, Grande Absente, Absinthe Originale is one of the oldest traditional Absinthe recipes from the south of France. Hand crafted in Provence like it was from 1860-1912, Grande Absente is made exclusively with the highest quality spirits and select botanicals, including the legendary botanical Wormwood, also known as artemisia absinthium.
What sets Grande Absenthe apart is the combination of French artisanal distillation techniques and high quality mix of regional botanicals which results in a great tasting Absinthe, a suprisingly refreshing drink that's out of this world.

The distillery where Broker’s Gin is made is located near Birmingham, England and is over 200 years old. There had previously been a brewery on the site, but this was converted to a distillery at a time when gin-making became more profitable than beer-making.
The distillery uses only traditional pot stills. Continuous distillation using column stills is more efficient and is used by the major brands, but pot stills are better for extracting maximum flavour from the botanicals in a traditional hand-crafted fashion.
The distillery has a mini-still, which is used for making small batches of gin from different recipes. The recipe for Broker’s Gin is 200 years old and was chosen after taste-testing against several newer recipes. Often the old ones are the best ones.
The copper pot still used for producing Broker’s Gin is named “Constance” and was manufactured by John Dore & Co, long recognised as the finest still-maker in the world.
The base spirit for Broker’s Gin is quadruple-distilled pure grain spirit made from English wheat. The flavour is provided by ten natural botanicals, the primary one of which is juniper berries – as in all gins. The botanicals are steeped – soaked – in the base spirit in the still for 24 hours. This is the first part of the flavour-infusion process. The still is then fired up for the final, fifth distillation, which completes the process.
Dried botanicals are sourced from all over the world and shipped to the distillery in sacks.
The botanicals used in Broker’s Gin and their sources are:
Juniper berries – Macedonia, Coriander seed – Bulgaria, Orris root – ItalyNutmeg – India, Cassia bark – Indonesia, Cinnamon – Seychelles, Liquorice – Italy, Orange peel – Spain, Lemon peel – Spain, Angelica root – Poland
The botanicals are added to the still in carefully measured quantities according to the recipe. Some botanicals, eg juniper, require a number of sackloads.
Where quantities smaller than a sackload are required, a small shovel is used.
There is an underground spring beneath the distillery, which provides a source of soft, pure water.

In Roman Mythology Fortuna was the Goddess of fortune, and your fate would be forever determined by just one spin of her wheel.
She brought good luck and prosperity to those who believed in her powers by guarding their fields.
Ron Fortuna is a manifestation of the Goddess' powers.
She spread her wealth onto the fields in which the sugarcane grew to create this magnificent rum

Age is a mere aspect of importance for the selection of the rum. Ron Fortuna is created by cherry picking the cask that master blender belive have achieved perfection.This is an on going process of analyzing the rum that have reached maturity but only picking the exceptional ones to be part of this blend.
The botling is made by the lates and most sophisticated equipment in the industry and the rest of the bottling procedure- blending, labeling and packing are carefully achieved to perfection by hand in the true essence of a small batch rum.

For centuries, the finest rums, like whiskeys, were made in pot stills. Traditionally, pot still rums from several different origins were married together to produce the most coveted rums, rich and complex with flavor. This costly and time-consuming method of distillation has now all but vanished. Today, most rum brands are the product of a column still or a combination of column still and pot still rums. Furthermore, most rum brands are the product of a single country.
Sea Wynde is a rum unlike any other. Not only is it made using the traditional pot still technique, but it also marries rums from Jamaica and Guyana, creating a rich flavor that could never be reproduced by column stills used today, and also proves that two are better than one. In fact, Sea Wynde is the only rum in the world, to our knowledge, to combine pure pot still rums from these two countries. The individual rums are aged in small oak casks, some in the Carribbean and some in the UK. Once all the individual casks are selected, the rums are vatted together prior to bottling.
Sea Wynde is bottled in small batches and, like a vintage wine, the flavor of each bottling will vary. It is a rum of honeyed richness and subtle complexity which places it in a class of its own, and demonstrates the benefits of sticking with tradition. Sea Wynde Pot Still Rum allows you to experience the invigorating taste of the Caribbean and South America any time of year.

The story of Punt e Mes goes that back in 1870 a stock broker, caught up in a debate with a few colleagues at Bottega Carpano, ordered a vermouth laced with half a dose of quina liqueur using a Piedmont dialect expression: "Punt e Mes" (roughly translatable as "one and a half").
The bizzarre origin of this new name came into common usage not long after, with “regulars” of the wine shop ordering Punt e Mes with a gesture, whereby they would only need to raise their thumb to mean one Point and trace a straight line upwards in mid-air  to mean a Half point for the barman to understand straight away that they wanted a Punt e Mes. It was a favourite drink of the founder of FIAT, Giovanni Agnelli,  as he recalled in his memoirs of 1916
Punt e Mes has a golden orange color with topaz tones, herby aromas and dark red, black dahlia with vermilion shades. The initial taste is one of sweetness, characterised by an intriguing accent of orange. This is followed by the characteristically bitter taste of the quina and ends on a sweet note.

Antica Formula is a red vermouth made from an original recipe by Antonio Benedetto Carpano, the man credited with creating modern vermouth in Turin in 1786. Carpano originally developed vermouth by mixing herbs with a base wine and then sweetening it by adding spirit. His new drink proved so popular that soon his shop had to stay open 24 hours a day to satisfy demand.
Carpano had been inspired by a German aromatised wine and was a fan of German poetry. As a result, he named his new product after the German word for wormwood, wermut, which was frequently used to flavour wine at the time.
Antica Formula is richer and more complex than most red vermouths and will make an excellent Bronx, Manhattan or Negroni.

Launched in 1987 Bombay Sapphire has a unique distillation process: There are only four Carterhead stills working in the world today and are distinctive to Bombay Sapphire.
Unlike other gins which boil their botanicals with the spirit, the Bombay spirit is distilled alone. To achieve the unique flavour, the spirit passes through the botanicals in vapour form. This allows each delicate aroma to be fully absorbed. The result is a complex, yet subtle taste sensation.
Triple distilled, 100% neutral grain spirit is heated into vapour form. Vapour is sent through the rectifying column, unique to a Carterhead still. The baffle system, situated in the column, allows only the purest spirit to pass through.
Purified vapour passes through a copper basket containing 10 natural botanicals and absorbs their delicate flavours; Almonds from Spain. Angelica (root) from Saxony. Lemon peel from Spain. Coriander (seeds) from Morocco. Liquorice from China. Cassia Bark from Indo-China. Juniper Berries from Italy. Cubeb Berries from Java. Orris (iris root) from Italy. Grains of Paradise from West Africa. The vapour is turned into liquid and received into a spirit safe as Bombay Sapphire.
The selection and balance of their botanicals is based on a recipe dating from 1761. The selection of botanicals used to create Bombay Sapphire is an extensive process with no expense is spared.
Bombay Sapphire is blended with pure water from Lake Vyrnwy and bottled.

Glenfiddich 1978 Vintage Reserve was selected on 9th October 2010 by a global panel, with a nosing and tasting conducted live via the microblogging site, Twitter.
The very first of its kind, this groundbreaking virtual selection was Glenfiddich Malt Master, Brian Kinsman's inaugural Vintage Reserve selection. After two hours of tweeted discussion, in front of an online audience, cask number 28152 was selected from a shortlist of four American oak hogshead casks, all filled within minutes of each other, from the same batch, on 25th September 1978.
In nosing and tasting samples of the four diverse whiskies, the panel of whisky bloggers from around the world was able to explore first hand the enormous impact oak has on the maturation process and see for themselves how each cask imbues the whisky with its own unique character.

Brian Kinsman commented: "It was truly exciting to be part of such a pioneering process. To have an expert selection panel, based all over the world, meet virtually, in real time, for a nosing and tasting was fantastic. Tweeting seemed to help people refine their thoughts and impressions of the key aromas and tastes they picked up on. I'm delighted that cask number 28152 has been selected as the 2010 Vintage Reserve; it is an exceptional single malt with classic Glenfiddich fruit characteristics on the nose."

CanaRio comes from the house of Fazenda Soledade in Rio state, a Brazilian family enterprise established in 1827, and has been producing premium cachaça ever since. CanaRio Cachaça is produced using the elaborate, and for cachaça unusual, method of double distillation in copper pot stills. Only fresh sugar-cane juice is used for producing CanaRio Cachaça. The sugar-cane fields lie at an altitude of 800 m in the mountains of São Fidelis. This region is famous for its individual and specialised cultivation of sugar-cane. After around one year of growth, the select, fresh sugar cane is harvested by hand. The heart of the sugar cane is carefully separated from the rest for the distillation process and pressed to produce sugar-cane juice within 24 hours. The importance of the pure, clear, soft water from the distillery’s own well for both the fermentation process and the ultimate quality of the product should not be underestimated.
