This unique Auchentoshan Lowland Single Malt Whisky has been matured in three different cask types. Moving from American Bourbon to Spanish Oloroso Sherry - and finally Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks - Three Wood is a rich, complex whisky with incredible toffee and sherry oak flavours. Fruit and syrup. Hazelnut with hints of cinnamon and lemon. A butterscotch sweetness adds to the overall complexity. Fresh and fruity, with long lasting oaky sweetness.
Distilled Dry Gin Bacûr owes its unique character to the botanicals used to produce it. Juniper berries, sage leaves and lemon zest are left to macerate in a solution of water and alcohol for a long time; after that, double distillation takes place, clearing the liquid from possible unwanted hints and leading to an elegant distillate with a fine, clean bouquet. The final features of this Gin are deeply related to its components, and its quality and complexity depend not only on the quantity of plants used, but also on the conditions in which aromatic compounds are extracted from each of them.
Beefeater 24 is our Master Distiller’s contribution to the Beefeater legacy. Made in the heart of London from 12 hand-selected botanicals, including Japanese Sencha and Chinese Green teas, it is a sophisticated and modern London Dry Gin, designed to inspire mixologists around the world. The inspiration for Beefeater 24 came while our Master Distiller, Desmond Payne MBE, was travelling in the Far East. Quinine is banned in Japan, resulting in tonics that are comparatively sweet. As an alternative, Desmond chose to mix his Beefeater gin with chilled green tea. The resulting gin and tea combination was remarkable and inspired Desmond to spend the next 18 months experimenting with different teas and botanical blends. The result is an exceptionally mixable gin, with a unique aromatic profile and superior smoothness, ideal for contemporary cocktails.
Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is an oriental-inspired spirit from The Shed Distillery in Co Leitrim that's setting the world alight.

Nose: Orchard fruits open it up, with orange and apple. A touch of pastry and a dusting of icing sugar. Palate: More rich, sweet red apple notes. Golden barley in the background. Finish: Touches of almonds last on the finish.
Nose: Full of winter berries and a touch of port. A good oak and a little cereal hanging in the substratum. Palate: Sweet and thick. The port note is chewy and rich with notes of barley sugar and cereal and lots of juicy fruit and berries, a tad cloying. Finish: Long and fruity and quite sweet.
