Cocchi Americano is an aromatized wine created in 1891 by Giulio Cocchi and since produced to the original recipe. The name “Americano” is due to the alcohol made bitter (“amaricato”) by the addition of herbs and spices in particular gentian flowers and leaves, Artemisia, Cinchona, bitter orange peel, elderflower and others.
Seedlip, the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit is made like a gin with botanicals, but is definitely not a gin. The predominant flavour is clove rather than juniper, and, most importantly, it has no alcohol.
The second bottling from Seedlip is a celebration of summer – a non-alcoholic spirit that bursts with clean, fresh herbal flavours. Great served long with bitter lemon or soda water over ice. Seedlip is made from six carefully selected botanicals and spices, sourced from around the world and distilled in copper pot stills.
TRE KORS is blended from 25% Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne and 75% Fins Bois cognac. It is matured in casks for minimum 2 years. Deep amber colour. Lively, youthful bouquet marked by fruit and with something of the character of young Grande Champagne. Soft, rounded attack, but a relatively light, fruity finish.
Briottet`s Caramel Liqueur combines the comfy softness of caramel with the characteristic note that fleur de sel confers on it. Their recipe -- which employs cream -- will take you back to the flavours of yesteryear.
The Chase Fruit Cup is made by passing Chase Vodka through the evaporation chamber or their gin still in order to infuse it with a blend of 17 botanicals. Along with the botanicals, the Fruit Cup is combined with elderflowers and locally sourced raspberries and blackcurrants to create this beautifully summery drink.
Cocchi Americano is an aromatized wine created in 1891 by Giulio Cocchi and since then produced according to the original recipe. The name “Americano” is due to the alcohol made bitter (“amaricato”) by the addition of herbs and spices and to the American habit of drinking vermouth with ice and soda.
Opens with ripe vinefruit and concentrated blackcurrants, and evolves into a deeply satisfying full aroma with hints of green spice. Silky, voluptuous and very ripe initially, with a lingering viscosity and long concentrated flavour, perfect balance between the sweetness and acidity. Piquant.
DeuS Brut des Flandres is a unique brew that was introduced to the world in 2002. It is a sparkling, honest and pure beer created with just water, yeast, malt and hops. The carefully selected yeast cultures add a mild taste of ginger.
Light, golden amber colours, clean and round with nutty sherried notes and burnt sugar on the nose. Light and fruity with oranges, raisins and a touch of coffee on the palate. Finishes with a bite of spirit and some lingering sweetness.
Briottet Crème de Fraise strawberry liqueur is made with the finest quality strawberries available. Picked by the Romans for their therapeutic qualities, wild strawberries spread through Europe during the 17th century.
Beautiful soft sweet aromas, hints of cream and caramel but not overpoweringly sweet on the palate - this is the `real thing` , not a commercially made cream Sherry, with wonderfully aged PX to give it the weight and depth.
To mark the 120th anniversary of when Giulio Cocchi first made vermouth, the production of Cocchi`s original Vermouth di Torino recipe was resumed in 2011. Unmistakably Cocchi in character, Vermouth di Torino is one of only two geographically protected AOC vermouths (the other being Chambery).
Lovely, light, lively golden colour. Intense almond nose with hints of oaky spice and just a touch of orange. The palate has plenty of life with nutty almond flavours, slightly salty but well-balanced acidity and a good long finish that has a surprisingly light touch for a 30 yearold sherry. Carries the official VORS stamp.
An authentic and original Extra Dry Vermouth di Torino produced according to the recipe of the Chazalettes family, who moved from Savoy to Turin in 1860 and began producing vermouths and spirits in 1876. Citrus-peel freshness is beautifully balanced by the roundness of Piedmontese alpine herbs, accompanied by hints of juniper and other spices.
Sercial is the driest style of madeira and exhibits mouthwatering acidity. Golden orange in colour, the wine displays vivid floral aromas, with nuts and dried orange peel on the palate. This is a complex wine with balanced acidity and a lengthy finish.
The Cape Vintage Reserve from De Krans is deep, rich, Port style fortified wine. Portuguese varietals were planted in Calitzdorp during the late 1970’s with Tinta Barocca being the first to find its way to the Klein Karoo. Now Calitzdorp is known as South Africa’s Port Capital with these varietals leading the way.
