    Lillet Blanc (750ml)
    Made since the 1800s, Lillet (pronounced lee-lay) from the French village of Podensac is a French aperitif traditionally served over ice with a slice of orange. Lillet Blanc is made from white wine and the drier Lillet Rouge is made from red wine, sourced from premier vineyards in Bordeaux. Lillet Blanc is the key ingredient in James Bond's 'the Vesper', the drink created in Ian Fleming's Casino Royale. PWS

  2. 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.

  3. Cocchi Americano Bianco Aperitivo (750ml)
    Cocchi Americano Bianco Aperitivo (750ml)

    Cocchi Americano means much more to Asti than a simple wine made with the infusion of herbs and spices.

    An aperitif par excellence.

    Cocchi's is widely regarded as the original Aperitivo Americano, and has been made continuously since 1891 using only natural ingredients.

    To aromatise the white wine a secret blend of herbs and spices, to name a few, gentian,  cinchona and bitter orange peels, are added to the wine base which is then steeped over a period of time.

    In recent years Cocchi Americano has become a cult product in the circle of best sommelier and bartenders of the world.


    The complexity of this product is the first thing that surprises you. On the nose you initially detect notes of orange zest, orange flower and elderflower before more mature aromas of baked apple and pear drops emerge. Your palate will immediately appreciate the bitter/sweet balance as more bitter notes mingle with honey and citrus flavors, mainly orange and lemon zest. More wine-like characteristics become evident as the flavors develop into a long, vibrant finish, with the bitter and sweet notes remaining fresh until the end.
    Serve chilled with ice, a twist of orange peel and a splash of soda.

  4. Cocchi Americano Rosa Apertivo (750ml)
    Cocchi Americano Rosa Apertivo (750ml)

    Throughout its history, the house of Cocchi has periodically produced alternative varieties of its Americano aperitif wine.

    Here the wine base is a blend of two aromatic varietals such as Brachetto and Malvasia famous for imparting notes of wild rose and summer berries.

    These are blended with herbs, fruit and spices, most notably gentian, cinchona and citrus like for the Bianco classic version, but with an extra addition of Ginger and rose petals.

    Enjoy with soda or tonic and a zest of grapefruit.

    A Royale sumptuous edition can be made topping it with Sparkling Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG.
