  1. Delord Bas Armagnac XO 10 yr 200ml Mini's
    Delord Bas Armagnac XO 10 yr 200ml Mini's

    Situated in Bas-Armagnac, vineyards are made up of Colombard, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grape varieties. The distillery is to be found in the village of Lannepax, the ancestral home of the Delord family. The distillation, the most essential and fascinating stage in the production of Armagnac, takes place at the beginning of November through to the end of December. Their old Sier Armagnac alambics, that they wouldn't part with for all the gold in the world, produce less than 30 litres of eau-de-vie an hour. Delord cellars contain old treasured vintages and include more than 700 oak barrels that protect and age the Armagnac eau-de-vie dating from the 20th Century to the present day.

    Delord thanks to their vision have stored such quantities of good Armagnacs for such a long time that they have the resource to be very competitive in price for the same quality. They also concentrate on Armagnac styles, very rounded, soft and easy to drink, that they are amongst the most successful producers.

    Caramel, candy, vanilla, nut and a whole selection of tasting goodies. A rustic opening which rounds out all the way with hints of rancio that travels from fruitiness to sweetness and vice versa. A spiral of dried fruit, citrus peel, vanilla, caramel, spiced oak, grape, nutty, rancio, prunes, cinnamon.

  2. Erba Volant Vermouth di Torino 750ml
    Erba Volant Vermouth di Torino 750ml
    Very much made in the pale, bitter and dry spectrum, this vermouth is a decent step up from the more traditional and commercial 'blending' vermouths. This is made from a base white wine of Cortese and Trebbiano with alcohol, sugar, water, an alcoholic infusion of herbs and roots, cardo gobbo di Nizza Monferrato and wormwood - the plant that defines Vermouth di Torino.

    Wonderfully golden yellow in colour with amber reflections, the aromas and palate are expressive and elegant, with marked herbaceous notes of absinthe, cardo gobbo, velvety vanilla and a touch of chamomile. We think it's best served chilled on ice. 16% alc.
