The history of Mahón Gin is inseparable from that of Mahón, an urban legend from the port city Mahón is named after the brother of Hannibal, the feared Carthaginian leader who was also a frequent visitor on the island.
In the early 1700s when Great Britain took over the city of Mahón for its deepwater port, Lord Nelson became a famed local resident. The gin is still made following the one-shot method with local firewood used as fuel.
Alcohol, Water, and Juniper berries with other ingredients are placed in a copper alembic and then heated. As the vapor turns into a spirit of about 50% ABV the essential oils and aromas are then extracted.
Distillation lasts for around 9 hours and then the spirit is finally diluted down and filtered for impurities. No additional flavors or essences are added to the spirit.
Murray Mcdavid Peatside Blended Malt
Established early in 1994, Murray McDavid has quickly become a leading Scotch whisky bottler. One of the first to start using a variety of interesting casks in the Art of Maturation to produce Inspired Scotch Whisky.
Murray McDavid was established by London wine merchants Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin, and Springbank Distillery’s Gordon Wright. They quickly gained a reputation for maturing whisky in interesting casks, especially in fine wine casks. In 2000, the Murray McDavid team set about reopening the closed Bruichladdich Distillery on Islay, engaging the services of Jim McEwan, Islay’s most celebrated Master Distiller.
In 2012, spirits giant Remy Cointreau purchased Bruichladdich Distillery and Murray McDavid. Later, Murray McDavid was sold to its current owners, leading Scotch whisky broker, Aceo Ltd.
Amrut Distillery is a family-owned distillery located in Bangalore, India operating since 1948. Amrut buys bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace and Jack Daniels. The distillery won 1 gold and 3 silver medals at the competition.
Old Port Rum was the first product produced by Amrut Distilleries. Amrut is popular for producing legendary single malt whiskies and also produces impressive rums. Old Port Rum is produced from 100% molasses sourced from native Indian sugar cane. It ages in a combination of ex whisky barrels and new oak which both add to the smooth rich taste.
Waterford Dunmore Single Farm Origin Irish Single Malt Whisky
Waterford Distillery is located on the banks of the River Suir, in Waterford, Ireland. Originally a high-tech Guinness brewery, the site was purchased by a private team and converted to distillation in 2015. Waterford uses only 100% Irish malted barley from 86 Farms - including Organic (Ireland's first), Biodynamic and Heritage grains, grown on 19 terroirs across the South East of Ireland.
The distillery uses a spectrum of super-premium oak: 50% US First fill, 20% Virgin US, 15% Premium French. 15% Vin Doux Naturel (sweet fortified wines). Waterford Irish Single Malt Whisky is double distilled, first in a 17,000 litre Wash Still, then an 11,000 liter Spirit Still.
This distillery produces approximately 1,000,000 liters of spirit a year. The production uses a mash filter as opposed to a traditional mash tun, extended fermentation times to over 120 hours - almost twice the industry standard - to allow for a secondary, malolactic fermentation, rare for the industry.
This ensures every last bit of flavor is extracted from each terroir, each farm. Waterford founder Mark Reynier is an industry iconoclast for taking on both the corporate Irish and Scotch whisky world with his totally unique concept of terroir in whisky.
Blackadder Puff Adder
Blackadder International was established 1995 by Robin Tucek who, together with daughter Hannah and son Michael run the family business
Robin Tucek is also co-author with John Lamond of The Malt Whisky File – one of the most respected books about malt whisky
The Blackadder Raw Cask whiskies are complete cask whiskies bottled containing cask sediment.
Blackadder’s philosophy is very simple – they believe that the Cask is King. Sixty to seventy percent of the flavors in a whisky are taken up slowly from the cask as the spirit lies maturing in the warehouse. The action of changing temperature draws the spirit in and out of the cask. Every cask is unique, with its own fingerprint.
This is why they bottle most of their whiskies from single casks. They don’t believe in chilling or otherwise heavily filtering their whiskies, and they never, repeat never, add caramel coloring and flavoring to their spirits. They have always believed the personalities of their whiskies are colorful enough. Puff Adder is a tantalizing vat of Single Malt Whiskies, carefully selected and blended in Scotland for Blackadder.
