Producer notes ~ "Matured predominantly in European and American sherry seasoned oak casks, our iconic 12 Year Old single malt whisky is spicy and well-rounded, packed with the flavours of sun-kissed Seville oranges and rich fruitcake spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves; you’ll find molten heather honey in this whisky’s waves of heathery peat smoke. Why not try it with a handful of wasabi peas on the side or alongside a sizzling, pan-fried rib-eye steak or with smoked salmon and sour cream."More info
Producer notes ~ "This is a wonderfully rich and complex single malt. Opening with rich and spicy aromas of crème brulee, heather honey and crumbled cinnamon, intensely fruity notes follow - fresh pineapple dressed with a scattering of sun-kissed lemon zest. There’s a hint of freshly-baked sponge cake too, warm from the oven, and you’ll find cinnamon again, but toasted shards this time. Citrus and vanilla notes linger in the aromatic waves of peat smoke.More info
Producer Notes ~ "Named by the American whisky expert, F Paul Pacult, as ‘Best Spirit in the World’ (Spirit Journal), 18 Year Old Viking Pride is our most highly-awarded single malt whisky, being honoured with both a Gold and an Ultimate Recommendation (with a score of 96) in the 2021 International Spirits Challenge. Matured in a high proportion of first-fill sherry seasoned European and American oak casks, this superb 18 Year Old single malt pays tribute to our five keystones of production and presents a sophisticated medley of ripe cherries dusted with bittersweet cocoa, freshly harvested honeycomb and candied orange peel. There’s a whisper of Orkney’s salty seaspray in the aromatic peat smoke.More info

Producer notes ~ "Kamiki, meaning God’s Breath in Japanese, was born at the Omiwa Shrine at the foot of Mount Niwa in Japan. Here, alcohol created by the local spirit producers is served as a blessing. Kamiki was created to further this tradition by taking a range of some of the finest whiskies from Japan and blending them with the best whiskies from overseas before maturing in a range of peculiar wood types. The results are smooth, intricate and intriguing expressions that differ from the norm and deliver a truly unique tasting experience. This new expression was finished in Japanese Cedar wood, just like the two before it, before being transferred to casks made from the famous Sakura tree for further finishing. The Sakura tree is hugely famous in Japan. It symbolises the beginning of Spring and is intrinsically connected to “mono no aware”, a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence, or in other words – mortality."More info
Producer notes ~ "This exquisite Kavalan whisky has won several prestigious awards, including a gold at the World Whiskies Awards. The expression also received a Gold in its category at the International Spirits Challenge. Kavalan ex-Bourbon Oak dilutes Solist ex-Bourbon with Kavalan spring water to 46% strength. It is incredibly smooth with a soft sweetness, losing the harshness and the alcohol edge and lingering over those unique flavors. It is clean and fresh tropical fruitiness with pleasant vanilla, coconut and spices."More info
Producer Notes ~ "The first 12 year old whisky from Glengyle Distillery after reopening in 2004. Kilkerran 12 is non-chill filtered and was matured in a combination of 70% bourbon casks and 30% Sherry casks. Lightly peated with beautilful citrus scents, vanilla, butterscotch and the signature Campbletown smoke with sea notes."More info
Producer notes ~ "Laws Whiskey House is reimagining great American whiskey by creating unique and bold flavor experiences. Our grain-forward style whiskeys are made with the highest quality corn and heirloom wheat, barley, and rye grown by two Colorado family farms. We use time-tested production techniques that showcase each individual grain’s terroir resulting in singular and novel whiskeys. The barley in our malt whiskey was literally kept from extinction. While commercial farmers found it too low yield, Wayne Cody found its unstripped flavor too glorious to let go. Today, his sons, in a field alongside Henry Road, continue to grow, as well as malt, this barley for us."More info
Producer Notes ~ "This whiskey derives its name from the grain its made from, Centennial Wheat. This heirloom spring soft white varietal is grown for us by the Cody family in the San Luis Valley. It is also the first Colorado-made wheat whiskey to meet the standards of the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897. AROMAS: Mountain strawberries, orange marmalade, alpine meadow and wildflower honey. FLAVORS: Jasmine tea, sage, spruce tips and pink peppercorn. MASH BILL: 100% Soft White Centennial Spring Wheat. AGED: 5+ years in new 53-gallon charred oak barrels. ALC/VOL: 50%.More info
Producer notes ~ "Sourced from the orchards along the Gulf Coast of Veracruz de Ignacio de la Llave, Persian limes yield a fresh aroma reminiscent of fresh lilacs. We distill these fragrant limes in an Eau de Vie still, adding a touch of cane sugar and house-made lactic acid to lend this cordial its intensely tart finish. This cordial mixes beautifully in all manner of mezcal, tequila, and rum drinks. Try it as a substitute for lime juice to elevate a cocktail from ordinary, to memorable. Mix it with ginger beer to create a Sour Lime Buck with stunning results, or pour some into the neck of a cold lager instead of a wedge.More info

Producer Notes - "Longrow Peated offers those who enjoy a heavily peated whisky the chance to enjoy a lingering, smoky taste that travels through the senses like the smoke billows from a kiln. Matured in Bourbon and Sherry Casks. Nose: Very creamy, vanilla custard. The smoke develops gradually, rather than overpowering the other aromas present. Toasted marshmallows, herbs and rich fruits appear over time. Palate: Incredibly well balanced; rich and creamy with a slight medicinal hint. The smoke is always present, washing over the palate in waves, like the soft billows of smoke from the Kiln. Finish: The gentle smoke lingers and lingers leaving you yearning for more." 46% ABVMore info

Producer notes ~ "Martin Miller’s Westbourne Gin. A gin for those in the know, its name derives from the location of Martin Miller’s own residence in Westbourne Grove in London, where the brand was conceived. Created in response to requests by ‘mixologists’ for a Martin Miller’s Gin that would give a more ‘old school’ authenticity to their classic repertoire of cocktails and help them create more fully-flavoured inventions. It became a bartender’s favourite from the very beginning, enjoying an underground cult status and closely-guarded secret among the bar fraternity. Intense and citrus. An emphasis on the spicier, peppery notes of cassia and nutmeg. Harnessed to an exact higher craft strength for a smooth and attractive alcohol sensation."More info
From its founding in 1870, the Eau-de Vie's from Massenez have set a benchmark for the category. Poire Williams may be the most aromatic of the range, with pristine fresh pear on the nose, and then a bone dry palate. These are NOT liqueurs, and are NOT sweet. They are traditionally consumed at the end of a meal, chilled or over ice, but also work very well in mixed drinks.More info

Established in 1798 these folks are among the original standard bearers of classic English Gin. Producer Notes ~ "The rich and smooth taste of Plymouth Gin is the result of a balanced blend of seven hand-selected botanicals: JUNIPER BERRIES; CORIANDER SEED; ORANGE PEELS; LEMON PEELS; ANGELICA ROOT; GREEN CARDAMOM; ORRIS ROOT. From deep earthy notes to wonderfully fresh juniper and a lemony bite, Plymouth Gin Original’s great depth of flavour is just one of the reasons it’s truly unique."More info
Prado Pastis de Marseille is a local favorite in the south of France and is the direct descendant of the infamous absinthe. Its distinctive flavor comes from licorice and seeds of the anise plant. Smooth and full flavored, with a very refreshing edge, excellent in the late spring or summertime - but we enjoy it year round.More info
