Snaps from Icelandic Birch. 27.5% Alc. By Volume
This classic Italian bitter liqueur is made using a blend of herbs, spices and fruit peels lead by bitter orange. While great on the rocks, Campari is a crucial ingredient for Negroni and Americano cocktails.
Pisco Capel is an all natural grape spirit produced in northern Chile. It is a blend of 30% Muscat grapes and 70% Pedro Jimenez and Torontel grapes, then aged in wooden casks for four to six months. It is slowly distilled with the crystal-clear water from the high Andes Mountains, resulting in a transparent spirit with delicate bouquet.
Cardamaro is digestif amaro from Piedmonte, Italy. It is wine based, and flavored with the cardoon, a relative of the artichoke, and blessed thistle among other herbs and spices. It is light brown, and 34 proof, which is low for typical amari.
Because it is wine based, Cardamaro has the oxidative tones in common with sweet vermouth and Madeira.
Black Raspberry Liqueur
A five-star liqueur, made with ‘black raspberries’ and other bramble fruits, infused in aged cognac. Perfect for dressing up desserts or sweetening a cocktail.
Produced by the Carthusian Fathers (monks), the Chartreuse recipe dates back to 1605. The recipe remains a closely-guarded secret; only three of the brothers know the names of the 130 plants and how to blend and distill them. They are also the only ones who know which plants must be macerated to produce the distinctive colour. They alone supervise the slow aging in oak casks over several years.
The monks maintain a simple, prayer-filled life in their ancient monastery. As they have done for centuries, they appoint three brothers who are charged with producing the Chartreuse and keeping the recipe secret, until it is time to pass it on to other brothers.
This is the only green liqueur in the world with a completely natural colour. The colour is derived from the plants and herbs in the recipe, with no additives or artificial colour.
Chartreuse V.E.P., for Vieillissement Exceptionnellement Prolongé, is the luxe version. Aged for an extended period in oak casks, it mellows and intensifies to stunning effect. Earning rave reviews from tasters, these special V.E.P. bottles are presented with a wax-sealed cork and a wax-stamped back label, and shipped in individual wood boxes. These fine liqueurs offer a unique spirits experience.
Pale vibrant green, almost ‘day glo’. A plethora of aromas, including herbs, mint, orange rind, new leather, licorice, basil and spring flowers all vie for your attention. This sweet digestive has a constantly evolving flavour profile. Though the alcohol is high, the flavours are easily up to the task of keeping the heat in perfect line.
