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

Years ago, before very clever folk started coming up with all manner of means to keep open bottles of wine (reasonably) fresh, half bottles of wine were a thing. Growers would routinely bottle a modest proportion of their harvest into half bottles and restaurants in particular, would carry them, largely for the benefit of solo diners
Yup, we’re going all Teutonic for the month of April with tastings (both in-store and virtual), a smashing and stupidly discounted “anything but Riesling” mixed case of Germanic joy and a whopping 10% discount off all German wines throughout the month.
10 % discount you say……?
Yup, this is the simple bit – 10% discount on all German wines throughout April – no minimum quantity.
Some of you may recall from Christmas Tastings before "the event" the charming John Gant proudly showcasing the wines made by his son, Matt, in the Barossa as one half of
