The summer holidays are coming and to put you in the holiday mood we're holding a rum tasting.
2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019... is meant to be the year rum finally emerges as the on-trend drink, and not just drunk by pirates. In fact purists would prefer for rum to lose the pirate connotations entirely, and there is much talk in the industry for a new/simpler classification system, with even some calling for labels such as 'botanical rum' to tempt gin consumers.
Join us for an evening where we shall have some fun with rum and get you in the holiday mood!
There will be 5 rums to try on the night with mixers.
NB: No physical tickets will be sent out. Your name will be added to the event guest list held at the store.
Tasting tickets are non-refundable, transferable up to 14 days prior to the event.
On tasting this at the 2019 Australia Day tasting we thought "Big, showy, unsubtle - we love this!". It`s a huge smack in the face of exuberant, joyous Aussie fruit and well worth every penny of its pricetag.
Deep garnet in colour with an alluring complex aroma of dark-cherry, plums and roasted vanilla bean. The palate is powerful and well structured, fleshy, with chewy textured tannins finishing with polish and focus. The 2016 was an exceptional Barossa vintage indicating this wine will mature well for many years.
A blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren and Syrah
Colour: Pale with pomelo hues.
Nose: Precise and delicate with notes of flowers and melon
Palate: Powerful and well balanced with hints of citrus and red fruit, highlighted by a pleasant minerality
This sumptuous small batch gin is the latest addition to The Cotswold Distillery catalogue and will take your taste buds on a journey through the Middle East and Asian subcontinent.
The word Baharat means "blend of spices", with a foundation of juniper and coriander to which they’ve added an exotic blend of cardamom, cumin, clove, cinnamon, black pepper, chilli and a hint of JaffaCotswolds Distillery
Something very different to the mass produced Sekt which makes up the bulk of production. Instead of the cheap and cheerful, Liebfraumilch in a SodaStream®, tank method fizz you see at the bottom end of the market this is something sophisticated, complex and deeply delicious.
This is methode traditionelle Rheingau Riesling, barrel fermented and with three years on the lees, making it a pretty rare beast. It`s a wine with fantastic depth of flavour. It has all the elegance and complexity you would expect from big-name Champagnes, but the use of Riesling rather than the traditional French varities has left it with a character all of its ownBibo Runge
Castello di Fonterutoli
There’s cedar and tobacco here, but it’s backed up by lovely, fresh, wild strawberries, raspberry cheesecake and redcurrants. Full body, polished tannins and beautifully linear acidity. Finishes long and elegantly.
There`s plenty of deep, dark fruit on the nose of this classy Barossa Tempranillo. In the mouth this is a wine that`s equally eager to show its lighter side, with plenty of creamy red fruit alongside the damson and blackberry promised by the nose. With 20 months in new oak it seems fair to describe this as an Aussie Reserva
