ANGOSTURA AROMATIC BITTERS Made with the same original recipe since 1824, the world famous Angostura® aromatic bitters remains the quintessential and definitive ingredient for classic and contemporary cocktails. Angostura® aromatic bitters does as much for non-alcoholic ‘soft’ drinks as it does for your favourite cocktail. Now joined by Angostura® orange bitters for a deep citrus buzz, there’s no excuse for not adding a few dashes of the essential ingredient and no bar is complete without it.
Bénédictine is unique & world-famous - made in the traditional way, using a 500 year old secret recipe containing 27 herbs & spices from across the globe. It has won numerous awards for quality and was originally created as a reviving tonic.
Botanicals are the very essence of gin; its reason for being. For this, "The Botanist", small-batch, artisanal Islay gin, we use nine of the classic gin aromatics – orris root, cassia bark, coriander seed to name but three – and augment these with a heady harvest of twenty-two wild, native island botanicals, hand-picked by our expert foraging team from the windswept hills, peat bogs and Atlantic shores of this Hebridean island of Islay. This truly seasonal and exotic cocktail is then slow "simmer" distilled in our unique and cherished lomond potstill, "Ugly Betty". Betty prefers to work at low-pressure and won’t be rushed. So our precious botanicals are slowly and gently coaxed into releasing their complex, signature aromatics.

Isle of Skye 8 Years Old has its origins in that most celebrated of Scottish Islands: Skye, home of the Clan Macleod. Ian Macleod, the founder of 'ISLE OF SKYE BLENDED SCOTCH WHISKY', was justifiably proud of his family's 19th century recipe which contains a high proportion of carefully selected Island and Speyside malts. Its smoothness, mellowness and quality are guaranteed by the fact that every whisky in the recipe has been mellowed in oak casks for at least 8 years - the recognised age of maturity for many malt whiskies. Isle of Skye 8 years old (94 points) - A superstar whisky that gives us all reason to live! - Jim Murray Whisky Bible (2012).
