absinthe

Based in Pontarlier, France, the Emile Pernot distillery can trace its lineage to the first producers of Absinthe. In fact, Major Dubied, who had previously founded the Pernod distillery with his son-in-law, Henry-Louis Pernod, trained Fritz Duval, whose distillery eventually became Emile Pernot.

The magnificent century-old copper alembics used by Pernot for their absinthe distillations were made by the famous old firm of Egrot in the early 1900’s.

They were specially designed and built for absinthe distillation, and they are the only stills of their kind in operation anywhere in the world. These stills allow the Pernot distillery to produce absinthes of exceptional quality according to methods unchanged for a century.

armagnac 

The Darroze clan is the first family of Armagnac. Francis Darroze was an international rugby star in his youth, spent three decades building up unrivaled stocks of the best his region has to offer. In 1974 Francis Darroze started his business as a trader and producer of vintage Bas Armagnacs. For this he relied on years of experience, tasting, visits to the ageing cellars of Bas-Armagnac, the part of Armagnac where the most rich, complex and interesting spirits are produced. The initial idea was simple: to create awareness of a region and its extraordinarily varied wine-producing soils, rich and marked by history while respecting the originality and typical nature of each estate..

cognac

The vineyard was created in 1837 by Augustin and has seen the succession of Pierre, Maurice, Louis and Michel. Laurent came to join his father and grandfather in October 2000. According to the family tradition, when a son joins his father, a part of the cognac distilled in that year is set preciously aside and will only be sold by the future generations.

The vineyard stretches over 75 hectares in the two premier regions of cognac area : In the “Grande” and “Petite Champagne” whose soil contains a very great amount of active limestone. This chalky content plays a dominating role in quality of the Eaux de Vie (spirits, cognacs). Thanks to this exceptional land, Château Montifaud possesses an extremely high potential for quality. 

During each of the different phases of making the cognacs (producing, distilling, ageing), Château Montifaud apply the traditional craftsmanship and skill handed down from father to son. These allow Château Montifaud to enhance the natural qualities of the Eaux de Vie : the floral touches, the delicacy and elegance to the nose, the roundness, the suppleness and the long-lasting taste in the mouth.

gin

The people behind Ferdinand's Saar Dry Gin are Master Distiller Andreas Vallendar of Avadis Distillery in Wincheringen, and Winemaker Dorothee Ziliken from the VDP Forstmeister Geltz-Ziliken estate in Saarburg. 

The tri-border region between Germany, Luxembourg and France at the heart of Europe gives rise to an exceptional hand-crafted product from two traditional producers whose methods have already shaped this region's style and reputation. Independent of their mutual friendship, they all instantly agreed on one point: They wanted a gin that reflected their own region with all its highlights and with the emphasis on quality.

Master Distiller Andreas Vallendar combines carefully hand-picked Riesling grapes from the Zilliken estate and over 30 finely balanced botanicals from the vineyards and our own cultivation. Directly behind the distillery stand our own quince trees; the lavender comes from fallow vineyards and the lemon-scented thyme is grown in our own garden.

Botanicals: The herbs, spices and fruits used in the gin are delicately balanced and are cultivated mainly on-site. Along with the basic ingredient of juniper, other regional ingredients such as sloe, rosehip, angelica, hop blossom and rose are equally important constituents. We round off our gin with exotic botanicals such as almond shell, coriander and ginger.

VL92 Gin was born of the quest of two entrepreneurs to find their ultimate gin. Built upon a malt wine foundation, VL92 Gin has its roots in the Dutch genever tradition. The malt wine gives it its boldness; its complexity derives from the play between botanical elements that finish with the eccentric, citrusy endnote of a most surprising ingredient: coriander leaf. The gin is named after a historic Dutch sailing vessel whose freight contained exotic spices too daring for the local genever recipes - but wildly perfect for a VL92 Gin.

G&T was introduced by the British army in India in the mid 18th century. Gin was added to help the soldiers wash down the bitter tonic water, which at the time contained large amounts of quinine to repel mosquitos and prevent malaria. Nowadays gin & tonic can be quite a pleasant drink made in various styles and proportions. In fact the natural quinine in a proper Tonic Water complements the complex palate and green notes of a well made gin.

rum

Rum Nation is an Italian rum company created by Fabio Rossi, who began his life in the spirits trade as a Oenologist (one who has studied winemaking). After his studies, Mr. Rossi left the wine business and started up a whisky company in Edinburgh (Wilson and Morgan) acting as an independent bottler of Single Malt Scotch Whisky. His interest turned to rum and in 1999, Fabio Rossi foundedRum Nation. His company is headquartered in Italy; but Fabio purchases select rums from various distillers in the Caribbean and the Americas. As a result Rum Nation provides a rather unique assortment rums from various Caribbean producers.

In 1904, in northern Peru, the Hacienda Agrícola de Chiclayo was founded in Chiclayo, a small settlement between the sea and the mountains known as the ‘city of friendship.’  Here, a group of farmers united to trade their sugar, and to this purpose they built, at great personal sacrifice, a small refinery. The Hacienda was purchased in 1922, the family of Peruvian landowners Piera de Castillo, with Don Rolando at the helm. In 1950, some years after the purchase of a Scottish column still, Ron Millonario was officially born. 

The rum was the fruit of hard work, but since few could afford to sample it, it acquired the name “por los millonarios”, in acknowledgement of that exclusive club of individuals wealthy enough to buy the spirit and enjoy its unique charm.
In search of new products, Fabio Rossi landed in Peru in 2004, and discovered a warm, rich product that was a pleasure to drink. He had stumbled upon a genuine treasure of Peru.

vodka

Quartz Vodka is created with ESKA water, one of the purest spring waters in the world and the only water to come exclusively from and esker (a subterranean water reserve formed by the receding of a glacier over 8,000 years ago in Northern Quebec). ESKA is naturally filtered by quartz that is found in the Saint-Mathieu-Lac-Berry esker. Containing no sodium, it has a very low concentration of minerals and a perfect PH balance.

Made with a selection of superior quality grains, Quartz vodka is micro-distilled five times to give it an exceptionally smooth taste. It is then cryogenically treated and micro-filtered through quartz for an impurity-free silky finesse and crystaline purity. 

Produced in small batches, each step in the process is thoroughly thought out in order to ensure the highest production standards. The entire process is carefully overseen by Quartz Vodka's master distiller.

The Royal Prussian District Forester Ferdinand Geltz not only gave his name to this Riesling-infused Saar Dry Vermouth but he was also the historical co-founder of the VDP Mosel-Saar-Ruwer growers' group.

scotch whisky

Wilson and Morgan are one of the few independent bottling companies that are not based in Scotland. The company has an office in Edinburgh but is located in Treviso in northern Italy. Wilson & Morgan selects only the best malts from 10 to 30 years of maturation, sometimes after re-casking for finishing in port, rum or Marsala casks. 

Founded by Fabio Rossi in 1992, it runs alongside his family wine and olive oil business. Fabio's father was one of the first people to seriously import whisky in to Italy during the 1960s and this is where his interest was started.

When in 1992 the world at large began to discover the qualities of single malt whiskies, Fabio Rossi saw that the time had come for another decisive step forward in the history of the Rossi merchant-dynasty and took this step by founding Wilson & Morgan. 

Rossi began his discovery tour, roaming the Scottish Hiighlands, Lowlands and Island knocking on the doors of small, unknown distilleries as well as of those of world renown, talking to producers, traders and those "in-the-know". He bought every cask which he thought worthy of becoming a part of the Wilson & Morgan selection.

These malts are bottled at peak maturation and then shipped to countries all over the world, including Japan, France, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, and of course Italy, where today, they can be found in selected outlets, Michelin Star restaurants, wine and gourmet shops.
