New arrivals- an urban Bourbon, we now literally have Dutch Courage, and Warner Edwards' Sloe Gin has arrived

May 28, 2014

Reyka Vodka- Hailing from Iceland, and originally established with help from Auchentoshan, Reyka uses the ridiculously pure untouched glacial water, and geothermic heat, to produce a clean clear vodka. Apparently the air is so clean in the village that CO2 levels are falling, though it's still under 10°c at the moment. £28.25
Dutch Courage Gin- from those really rather good dutch distillers Zuidam who are famed for their windmill milled Genever, this is a full-flavoured citrussy gin with a fair whack of juniper and coriander. £33.25
Hudson Baby Bourbon- is the first bourbon whiskey to be distilled in New York. This single grain bourbon is made from 100% New York corn and aged in special small American Oak barrels. This unique ageing process produces a mildly sweet, smooth spirit with hints of vanilla and caramel. £52
Warner Edwards' Sloe Gin- We have stocked Warner Edwards' gin from barely a month after they received their still in December 2012. Since then their gin has gone on to worldwide acclaim, recently picking up double Gold at the San Francisco Spirits Competition (no mean feat). After asking through twitter for help gathering Sloes in October, their Sloe Gin has matured over the winter months and is now ready for drinking, intensely fruity but with no saccarhin sweetness found in other more commercial sloe gins. £27

It started early on a Saturday in June. I’m minded to say that it disturbed my lie-in but it was way earlier than that that my phone first pinged to announce the arrival of a new website order. (I wonder if Jeff Bezos has the same app on his phone?). Ignored it, rolled over and 5 minutes later it went again. And again. And etc, etc. Finally, before switching the thing off, curiosity got the better of me and I opened up the online shop to find a stream of orders for a wine that I fell in love with 2 years ago but that we had failed to make much headway with – Coteaux du Giennois, Terre de Silex from Clement & Florian Berthier,

Although the world has been turned upside down of late, Covid-19 hasn’t interrupted our Captain Kirk approach to wine-buying – seeking out new wines, new spirits and beers, boldly drinking what no man has drunk before. Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration
