Vivacious, deep, garnet-red colour. Ripe, fresh bouquet with a beautiful sensation of just-picked fruit. Starts out smooth, broad-based, and juicy on the palate. Goes on to show a texture that is both tight-knit and rich. The wine is very tannic, but this tannin is extremely classy and knows how to play second fiddle to the impression of sweetness. Le Clarence lacks only a little body and perhaps a longer aftertaste to reach the level of the grand vin!

Orbium is a peimagining of Hendrick's gin by master distiller, miss Lesly Gracie. Instilled with additional extracts of quinine, wormwood and blue lotus blossom, the result is an oddly exquisite gin. It is what Hendrick's gin might taste like a parallel universe. It is most certainly not for everyone.
Zacapa XO is a unique balance of complex aromas and flavors resulting from the exclusive blend of reserve rums. Hand selected rums are aged between 6 and 25 years in the “Sistema Solera.” Older and younger rums are then blended as they age in a sequence of barrels that previously stored robust American whiskeys, delicate Sherries, fine Pedro Ximénez wines and finished in French oak casks which previously aged Cognac.Zacapa XO is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks and pairs beautifully with dark chocolate and desserts.
Wine is elegant, rich in matured acids with a strong aroma reminiscent of roses and linden blossoms. It is fresh and lively, with a balanced taste of apricot and peaches. Very mineralic and nice petroleum taste.
