Plantation Peru 2004 Rum 43.5%
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
@plantation.rum #Peru 2004 hails from column stills at the Destilerías Unidas S.A. de Peru, in the #ChicamaValley, an extremely arid region on the Peruvian north coast. This Peru #vintage is first aged 12 years in its #terroir of origin and then matured two years in France. It reveals essences of ripe figs, both the fruit and the leaf, and mango, then develops notes of rich pastry, almond and white pepper. 🥃

Plantation Fiji 2009 Rum 44.8%
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Coming from the South Pacific Distillery in the #FijiIslands, this unique @plantation.rum #Fiji 2009 expression, is an alliance of both pot and column stills. The medallion on the label symbolizes the tropical flower, a figure of the green flora of Fiji.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
After a maturation of 7 years on #bourboncasks, the #rum was further put for 2 years on #cognac casks at @ferrandcognac . We even talk about a fermentation of 4 days, without any addition of sugar.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Tasting Notes
🥃
Very intense, this #vintage rum, aged for 7 years in Fiji and 2 years in Ferrand casks in France, is rich and round, with notes of #butteryvanilla, #caramel, #cocoa and gingerale as well as quince, hazelnuts and coconut.
🥃
Nose: intense, opens up to hints of prickly pear and varnish. We can safely label this as a wooden and oily profile. Then fruitiness and spiciness start on the aroma: banana, pecan, nutmeg and oak.
🥃
Mouth: rich and round, faithful to the nose with hints of buttery vanilla caramel. Furthermore, cocoa, ginger and fruity hints of quince, #hazelnut and #coconut are present.

We've told you before... So now, we'll let somebody else do the talking. :)

Guia Intervinos awarded the new vintages of Quinta de Aves with excellent (+90) scores. Fantastic wines for less than €10 per bottle.

The Syrah is definitely worth your while.

If you wanted one of these... We're completely sold out...

No wonder, since the Thompson's Sauternes cask gin comes from the hands of both master distiller Simon Thompson (Thompson's spirits) and Andreas Larsson.

Andreas Larsson is the Best Sommelier of the World (2007 ASI). He has a discerning palate and is a passionate wine lover. He is known not only for his incredible tasting abilities and vast knowledge, but also for his friendly and professional approach. He has a relaxed manner and is a highly sought after taster, speaker and educator within the vast field of gastronomy, food, wine and other beverages.

We think you can imagine that their sauternes gin is one to definitely try out. Will let you guys know if we will ever get our hands on some bottles again. :)

Cheers!

Gin Sea London Dry Gin

Gin Sea is the creation of the famous Spanish #sommelier Manuel Barrientos. Manuel got his inspiration from #Galicia where he, together with more than 100 professionals, perfected the #complex creation process of his gin. Manuel baptized his gin with the name “Gin Sea” and today it’s being distilled at Manuel Hacha. This is one of the oldest distilleries in the Basque country and in Europe. The distillation takes place in an old Hervé & Moulin (Bordeaux) pot still, which is active since 1890 (as mentioned on the label of the gin).

Tasting Notes

This one has a lot of freshness to it. Mint is quite pronounced in the aroma, but not overwhelming. Overall the aroma remains quite soft due to the combination of sweeter elements in this gin: orange zest and licorice. Some even say it has a maritime character. The sweet aroma of the orange peel is also found in the flavour of this gin. However, cardamom and chamomile are a bit more pronounced. It feels really smooth on the tongue, definitely not what we expected from the freshness of the aroma. #GinSea finishes with some herbal notes in which thyme is clearly present. A fine product!

Brooklyn Gin
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
What would happen if three guys and a copper still planned to make a #gin, that is #handcrafted and for which it takes them 3 days to make 300 bottles in a city called the #bigapple? Brooklyn gin would happen.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Before starting on their own – founders Joe Santos and Emil Jattne both were Brand Directors for #Bacardi. So they weren’t rookies to the business but they wanted something new, something of their own, something gin.They use local products bought in local stores and #grain that is grown in upstate New York. Although the distillery is in #OrangeCounty outside #NewYork City the city is never too far away. #BrooklynGin is a #craft #spirit made in New York with fresh #citrus peels and hand-cracked #juniper. Their gin is fresh, complex, and flavourful. It’s excellent to drink on its own and they’re proud of that. 👌🏻

Ginderella Gin
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
@ginderella_gent #Gin is the very first and most famous member of the Heynsquared family. Heynsquared consists of two brothers, Jan and Geert Heyneman. They are both graduates of #GhentUniversity, with a deep respect for #nature.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Heynsquared has a clear mission: to incorporate wild urban nature into a tasty product range. A product that gives everyone an alternative taste of the city. By foraging for unknown or unloved herbs (such as invasive species) in a controlled manner, they can keep their products firmly rooted in the city’s ecology.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
To process the herbs, the Heyneman brothers have developed several unconventional processes to distil nature’s extracts. Therefore the final result is an original and #unique product range. #Ginderella, a #gin based on invasive species from #Ghent’s urban nature, takes pride of place as its most famous product. Herb Robert, Japanese knot weed and lesser swine-cress are but a few of the herbs and weeds that give this gin its distinctive flavor and aroma. Eventually, no fewer than 9 extracts are the basis to create Ginderella. Three of them weeds, 3 invasive species that are only known to weed control services and 3 classic botanicals. Apart from the black pepper and kaffir lime, all the ingredients are freshly foraged from Ghent and its surroundings.

Cù Bòcan - Tomatin Distillery
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
During the last week of every year, the distillers use lightly #peated #barley in the #whisky production at the Tomatin Distillery. This #spirit, just 60,000 litres per annum, is then filled into 1st fill ex-#Bourbon, ex-#Sherry and #VirginOak casks and, when matured, will be bottled as #CùBòcan.

Tomatin Cu Bocan #Highland #SingleMaltWhisky #TastingNotes
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Nose
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
You are initially hit with #coconuts and #cream with some #botanic notes, #parsley and #coriander. The smoke emerges after a minute, but only drifting past the nose. A mesmeric mix of lime, grapefruit and #tangerines with rich #almond and #aniseed.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Mouth
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Initially feather light, followed by a honeyed smoke; toasted almonds. The rich spice of cloves, cinnamon and star anise create an enigmatic #elegance. Imagine a café latte with fresh #chocolate shavings.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Finish
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Light with a hint of sweet #smoke.
