  • Stephen Sparrow created Snow Leopard Vodka with one mission, to make an extraordinary tasting vodka which could make a significant contribution to saving the snow leopard from extinction. When Stephen Sparrow set out to create Snow Leopard Vodka, he knew it had to be a vodka of rare character, just like its name sake. That's why he chose to use luxury spelt grain, an ancient super grain five times more expensive than wheat and rye, commonly used to make vodka.  Spelt is what gives Snow Leopard its distinctive nutty taste and creamy texture and makes it perfect for a classic martini. Better still, each bottle sold helps to support snow leopard conservation. They are proud to have raised over $250,000 for snow leopard conservation projects to date. Snow Leopard vodka is the first luxury vodka to be made from rare Spelt grain. Spelt has a distinct nutty, fresh taste. It’s tough husk protects the grain from external pollutants and results in a freshness not found in any other grain. Spelt is grown without the use of pesticides or fertilisers and is typically five times the price of other grains used in premium vodka production. To guarantee quality and perfection their vodka is hand crafted in small batches, undergoing a complex 6 stage distillation process, using natural spring water drawn from an artesian well. The Snow Leopard spirit is expertly filtered twice over charcoal to produce a soft, smooth and full bodied exceptional tasting vodka. All of this takes place at their distillery in Poland, Polmos Lublin, 125 miles from Warsaw, the capital. Polmos Lublin, is over 100 years old and their master distiller Joanna Dawidowicz has been making award winning vodkas for over 30 years Vegan
  • The first tipple to come from Edinburgh's Port of Leith Distillery has arrived in the shape of Lind & Lime Gin! The name is inspired by Dr. James Lind of Edinburgh, who conducted one of the first clinical trials aboard the HMS Salisbury. In these trials, he noted that the scurvy patients eating citrus fruits were showing good signs. Hence the addition of lime within this gin. To balance the powerful citrus freshness, the distillers also used pink peppercorn alongside five other botanicals (including juniper) to create the recipe
  • Feast your eyes upon Havana Club Añejo 7 Year Old, a wonderfully flavoursome Cuban rum that is no stranger to awards. Back when it was created, this was the first Havana Club expression that was intended for sipping neat rather than for using in cocktails and mixed drinks. Though saying that, if you think your cocktails could use an upgrade of rich, aged rum tastiness, this stuff is ace. We've been particularly impressed when using it in place of a whiskey for Old Fashioned and Manhattan cocktails... Vegan

  • Whilst most of Johnny Neill’s inspiration for his award-winning Gins comes from his ancestor’s intrepid exploits abroad, this Rhubarb & Ginger Gin harks from fond memories made slightly closer to home. Post-war, the Whitley Family, now settled into rural England near Daresbury, cultivated their garden with thrilling flavours, serving as inspiration for both the table and indeed their experimentation with new Gins.

    'Old Tom' is a style of gin, dating back to the 18th century, where the gin would be lightly sweetened, to give a smoother finish. We realised this traditional method would allow the tart rhubarb we were picking for each batch to shine to its full potential.

  • Drawing on influences from the cuisine of the Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand, Tarsier Gin was inspired by a backpacking trip across Southeast Asia. Over the course of two years, the citrus-forward gin was developed and hand-crafted in a 1-litre copper alembic pot still in a Manchester kitchen. The final recipe that was settled upon features a total of seven traditional gin botanicals, plus the addition of the exotic calamansi, Kampot pepper, Thai sweet basil and galangal. The gin is named after the Philippine tarsier, one of the world's smallest primates and, appropriately, one features as the wide-eyed mascot on the bottle's label. The brand believes the native of the Philippines is the perfect representative as the primate's appearance, characterised by its small stature and big eyes, reflects the way the brand wants itself to be seen: as a small batch gin with big flavour and personality. If you're wondering what would be the best way to drink this juniper-based celebration of Southeast Asia, you couldn't go wrong with a classic G&T with added lime and ginger... Try with a green Thai curry or sashimi

  • This is the Navy-Strength edition of the famous Bathtub Gin from Ableforth's. As well as boasting a higher ABV than the original Bathtub Gin, this edition also has a bigger botanical punch thanks to the 'bashing up' (technical term) of the botanicals to release more flavour. The story goes that the term Navy-Strength was the result of the British Navy demanding gin to be bottled at 57% abv so that if it was accidentally splashed on gunpowder, the powder would still ignite. It was more likely that it was a weight-saving measure but that's not as fun now is it? As well as being named Best Compound Gin three years in a row at the World Gin Awards, Bathtub Gin - Navy-Strength was awarded the IWSC Trophy for Contemporary Gin in 2017! Vegan
