Monkey 47 Premium Schwarzwald Dry Gin 500mL

Admittedly, it appears somewhat eccentric to claim that a recipe for gin has the power to unite great British traditions, the exoticness of India, and the purity and nativeness of the Black Forest. And yet it is precisely this eccentricity that defines the enigmatic character of Montgomery Collins, from whom our Schwarzwald Dry Gin originates. His childhood as the son of a diplomat in East Asia, his military career among the ruins of Berlin, and his late-adopted home in the Black Forest supply the autobiographical background for a recipe that represents an audacious combination of native Black Forest herbs and berries and exotic Asian botanicals. A good third of the ingredients for this special gin come from the Black Forest and are definitely not what you would call typical gin flavorings! In total, 47 handpicked ingredients, prepared in extremely soft spring water from our own Black Forest source, give MONKEY 47, whose piece de resistance is the use of local cranberries as some sort of "secret weapon" typical to the Black Forest, its unrivaled complexity and quality, which is fully brought to bear through masterly distillation and maturing in traditional earthenware containers. Whether with tonic, as a sling, martini, or gimlet, the unique and complex taste of Monkey 47 is an ideal basis for both classics and more eccentric cocktails. With the distinct and pure scent of juniper, a tangy and crisp citrus note, a sweet, floral aroma, a hint of peppery spices, subtle bitter fruit, and a deep and harmoniously balanced complexity with a tremendously racy finish!

Grey Goose Premium Vodka 700ml

In 1998, the Beverage Tasting Institute of Chicago conducted a blind taste test of more than 40 vodkas. They awarded points based on smoothness, nose and most importantly, taste. Of all the vodkas sampled, Grey Goose emerged victorious receiving 96 points out of a possible hundred and was awarded the only Platinum medal. If sales comparisons reveal anything, Grey Goose is set to become the worlds leading super premium Vodka, outselling traditional products from Poland, Sweden and Russia. Polish Premium brand 'Belvedere' sold 375,000 cases in 2002 and has grown an average of 35% over the past five years. However, upstart Grey Goose has exploded past the competition from a paltry 50,000 cases in 1997 to 1.15 million 9-litre cases last year. Such results were not anticipated from this humble grain vodka made in the Cognac region of France! Tasting Notes: "Medium-bodied. Anise, citrus peel, herbs, minerals. Soft, rounded texture. Plush palate with a delicate edge. Shows off rich fruit elements surrounded by beautiful aromatics. Lovely fragrance holds forth as backnotes of lighter spice and stone are discerned. A sensational, elegant drink, that will do well with a twist and a good chill." -

Unlike some other gins, which 'boil' their botanicals together with the spirit, Bombay Sapphire distils its spirit alone. The spirit vapour from this distillation then gently passes through a copper basket containing the botanicals. This infuses the subtle aromatic flavours from each of the ten botanicals into the spirit vapour resulting in a crisp, delicately balanced taste

Church Road Tom 2014 Vintage Chardonnay 750ml

This is a complex, powerful Chardonnay built around a core of opulent fruit suggestive of peach, ripe apple, fragrant citrus and a fig-like richness.Woven through this are notes of roasted hazelnut, nougat and toasted brioche, along with a wisp of woodsmoke and struck flint, combining to bring a serious savoury element to the wine.Texturally, the wine leads with a seductive fruit richness but as it progresses across the palate the structure becomes more apparent with finely balanced acidity, a slate like mineral feel and a savoury/umami-like effect apparent on the finish.The overall impression is one of power and great depth, drawn out across a framework which provides exceptional linearity and persistence.
