  • Aerolite Lyndsay 10YO – Scotland

    46% || The Character of Islay Whisky Company

    From The Character of Islay Whisky Company comes a mysterious Islay single malt that goes by the name Aerolite Lyndsay. The peaty whisky has been sourced from an undisclosed distillery on the island, though we have been told that the liquid was aged for 10 years in a mixture of bourbon barrels and Spanish oak sherry quarter casks, which sounds thoroughly delicious. It’s bottled without any additional colouring, or any of that chill-filtration, too.

    Nose: Lots of maritime peat, with notes of iodine intertwined with honey sweetness, paprika, salted caramel and old bookshelves.
    Palate: Smoke returns alongside mint dark chocolate, espresso and new leather, with honey and soy sauce mixed together.
    Finish: Boiled mint sweeties, liquorice allsorts, bonfire smoke and toffee penny, with a pinch of salt.

  • Alvor

    Kinn Bryggeri

    – Wild beer with Brettanomyces 6,5%

    Freshly bottled, Alvor (Serious) is a lively, top-fermented, classic Belgian Trappist. But as the wild yeast propagates, other notes come increasingly into prominence. Allow the bottles to mature in the basement for a year or so, and you will understand what we mean. Have a bottle on hand as you “get serious” with Norwegian fermented “rakfisk”, cured leg of mutton, or goats-milk chèvre.

    Malt: Pilsner, Munich, Crystal and Black malt

    Hops: Magnum, Mittelfrüh, Fuggles and Bobek

    Yeast: Fermentis T-58 + Brettanomyces Bruxellensis

  • Aurora NAS Sherry Barrel – Scotland

    46% || Wolfburn Distillery

    A late 2016 release from the Wolfburn distillery, matured in a combination of casks – 40% of this whisky was aged in second-fill quarter casks, 40% in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and 20% in first-fill Oloroso Sherry hogsheads. An exciting release from the distillery.

    Nose: Almonds and pecans, with a wave of sweet, sticky Sherry notes.

    Palate: Raisins, currants, more mixed nuts and fresh barley.

    Finish: Lingering Sherried spice on the finish.

  • Bathtub Gin

    43,3% || Ableforth’s

    First, copper pot-distilled gin is made with juniper, coriander and other fragrant botanicals, but we don’t stop there. Instead, we take a portion of this gin and painstakingly infuse it with a further six fresh botanicals – a process which takes a whole week to do.

    This infusion process allows those fresh botanical flavours – too delicate to survive traditional distillation – to shine through, and Bathtub Gin is left with its unique flavour and distinctive hue.

    Nose: Fresh and bold juniper leads the way with fragrant citrus and cardamom. Notes of fresh orange peel and cinnamon add to an enticing nose.

    Taste: Juniper again leads, but there’s plenty more besides. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy whilst the cloves, coriander and cardamom offer depth.

    Finish: Here the supporting botanicals really shine with lingering cardamom and orange peel on the tail.

  • Big Dipper Gin

    46% || That Boutique-y Gin Company

    Fairgrounds are such odd places as they’re both child-like and nostalgic but also slightly seedy and decrepit. The smell of fairgrounds carries these contradictions – sugar with machinery and dirt. All captured in this gin’s aromas.
