  1. Lind & Lime Scottish Maritime Gin 700ml
    Lind & Lime Scottish Maritime Gin 700ml

    Lind & Lime Gin is the very first spirit produced by The Port of Leith Distillery Co at their Tower Street Stillhouse. They’ve thrown their full and unbridled energy into creating a gin forged entirely from the talent, heritage and industry of Edinburgh and its historic distilling district of Leith.

    These are the three things to know about the Lind & Lime Gin. Juniper is the cornerstone of any gin. It’s what makes gin gin. Indeed the English name ‘gin’ is derived from the Dutch word for juniper: jenever. So, you see, they had to start with juniper. At Leith Distillery they decided early on that they wanted a lime flavour in their gin. Not fruit pastel, confected lime, but zesty refreshing lime. They extract this from the rind, or skin of the lime. The lime needed something to counterbalance it and the answer they found was a gentle addition of spice from pink peppercorns.

  2. Kings County Straight Bourbon 375ml
    Kings County Straight Bourbon 375ml

    Kings County Distillery’s Straight Bourbon is made from New York State 80% organic corn and 20% English malted barley, is twice distilled in copper pot stills and then aged in new charred oak barrels. Rich in caramel, vanilla, and holiday spice, this bottle is cited frequently in lists of best non-Kentucky bourbons. Aged for at least two years, this is a precocious whiskey, surprisingly robust for its age.

    “Crisp Demerara sugar; sumptuous texture, aided by melt-in-the-mouth natural caramels; an excellent outpouring of citrus-tinged vanilla; for a year-old bourbon the sugars have accumulated charmingly (89=excellent).” – Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2013  “Exotic and deep, with flavors of grain, licorice, vanilla and molasses.”  (#2 Craft Bourbon, 3-Stars) — ERIC ASIMOV, New York Times 2014.  “Top Ten Bourbons” —Time Out New York, 2014

  3. Erba Volant Amaro Succi 700ml
    Erba Volant Amaro Succi 700ml
    Of all Erba Volant's herb-based 'medicinal tonics', their Aroma Succi is the darkest and most powerful product, with impressive complexity. On the nose, there's a herbaceous freshness, with distinct notes of sage, thyme, orange peel, wormwood, rhubarb, cinchona bark and gentian roots. The finish is rich and lingering, with a wonderful balance between sweet and sour - the perfect digestive to end a heavy meal. 40% alc. 
  4. Mars Iwai Japanese Whisky 750ml
    Mars Iwai Japanese Whisky 750ml

    A rich gold whisky with complex, sweet honey and malt fragrances. With note of burnt sugar cane, sweet peat, orange marmalade, cedar and cigar. This whisky has a distinctively rich full-bodied finish. Aged in sherry, bourbon and American white oak. Just has that little extra depth and dimension compared to the Iwai Whisky expression and warrants the higher price point easily. Lovely and clean as one one would expect. PWS

  5. La Gritona Reposado Tequila
    La Gritona Reposado Tequila

    Part of the wine team, Gabrielle has chosen a tequila that reminds us of the way tequila used to  be made, here's why:

    La Gritona is made by tequilero verteran Melly Cardenas and her team made up mostly of local women (all the men have crossed the border to find work) in the highlands of Jalisco. Made for LA based Punk guitarist Andy Coranado, this reflects a tequila that was made before the mass market took hold. There's no colouring or flavouring added, it's smooth with great depth and a lovely warming belly. Everything is thoughtfully done, nothing rushed that would compromise the quality. Even the charming green bottles are hand blown from recycled Mexican glass, just an hour's drive from the distillery. No need to mix this, serve it over a bucket of ice with a squeeze of fresh lime (and if you've got abit of lingering salt on your lips from your swim - even better). GABRIELLE POY, PWS

    'La Gritona' is Spanish for 'The Screamer'. It's an appropriate name seeing that one of the people behind this outstanding tequila is LA-based punk guitarist Andy Coronado. The other significant player is the renowned tequilero Melly Cárdenas, who fashions La Gritona at her small distillery in Valle de Guadalupe in the highlands of Jalisco. One of Mexico's few female master distillers, the fiercely independent Cárdenas--who has 20 years of quality Tequila production under her belt--shares Coronado's love of the exceptional and unconventional, and leads a team staffed by only local women.

    For a Reposado, La Gritona is light on colour and sweetness--Coronado and Cárdenas want none of the flavours that mask many commercial Reposados like vanilla, chocolate and dulce de leche. Instead this is packed with delicious, honest and savoury, roasted agave flavor, reminiscent of the old-style 'rested' Tequila, before the mass market took hold: "It's tequila like our grandparents drank," says Cárdenas. Working with 9- to 10-year-old, mature Blue Weber agave grown in the iron-rich red soil of the Jalisco highlands, every step of production after harvest takes place under Cárdenas' own roof. The agave is steam-cooked in a single, thick-walled earthen oven for 24 hours and then allowed to rest for another 24 hours before crushing. The collected liquid is naturally fermented (no additives are used to push things along) in open steel vats at a rate dictated by the ambient air temperature and the wild yeasts, usually lasting between six to nine days. The double distillation takes place in small steel stills. Those bespoke bottles by the way are made from recycled Mexican glass, hand-blown just an hour's drive from the distillery. Coronado uses any recycled clear glass he can find (mostly old Coke bottles) then chips in a few Dos Equis bottles for the green tint!

    The distilled blanco is then rested in reused American whiskey barrels for eight months before bottling. These low-impact second or third fill barrels are given only the lightest char which allows for the refreshing, sappy notes of the agave to shine through, resulting in a Tequila that sips and mixes perfectly in equal measure--it's crisp, clean and elegant and kills it in a Tommy's Margarita.

  7. Willett Family Johnny Drum Bourbon Whiskey (700ml)
    Willett Family Johnny Drum Bourbon Whiskey (700ml)
    Plenty of color, and the nose says it ain’t lying. Sharp warehouse oak aroma puts an edge on an authoritative nose of honey, Indian pudding, spicy hard candy, and old-fashioned root beer, the not-too-sugary kind. Fiery and bold on the tongue as oak roars from start to finish, but the sweetness builds sip-by-sip: cornbread, buckwheat honey, King syrup, and a teasy bit of citrus peel. Long finish as the oak dies down. At this price, let’s keep it our secret. LEW BRYSON www.maltadvocate.com

  8. Rittenhouse 100 Bottled in Bond Rye Whiskey (700ml)
    Rittenhouse 100 Bottled in Bond Rye Whiskey (700ml)

    Rittenhouse Rye 100 - Aged 4 years

    Now widely accepted as a bench mark American Rye and outstanding its it class. Rittenhouse is much acclaimed and is enjoying a much deserved comeback throughout the USA with plenty of awards and accolades to its name. A beautiful nose, choc-full with baking spices and crushed red pepper. A touch hot but not the least bit unexpected for this 100 proof bottling. The higher alcohol  makes it the perfect candidate shaken into cocktails or poured over ice just to help break down the heat a little. More to the richer and robust side of US Rye the palate has lashings of clovey/vanilla-bean anglaise, gingerbread, citrus peel, cocoa and spicy, woody notes and an almost creamy, rich palate. Basically just just damn good tasty Rye.

    "Rittenhouse continues to hit it out of the park" Chrisopher Null, DRINKHACKERS

  9. Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin 700ml
    Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin 700ml

    After experimenting with some exclusive batches of a high-proof gin for the Gin Palace we decided to add fresh 'Judy's Everbearing’ native finger limes, alongside our beautiful organic oranges, for its first release in 2014. This fresh citrus goes into the botanical basket, with some fresh ginger, giving our Navy Strength Gin its signature power and intensity.

    The finger limes highlight the Asian spices like coriander and star anise, and are complemented by the fresh ginger. Then the turmeric adds a fresh but earthy quality, not unlike dill, and weight to the palate.

    The resulting gin has lifted aromatics of lime curd, pine needles, and fragrant spices with a vanilla character which pulls the spices together. The palate is intense - sweet and juicy - but it is still very clean.

    And we're very pleased to announce that our Navy Strength Gin has been twice been awarded Master status at the Global Gin Masters (in 2015 and 2016), and Gold at the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition 2014. fourpillarsgin.com.au
