Old Forester Bourbon
Created in 1870, Old Forester is the only bourbon continuously distilled and marketed by the founding family before, during and after Prohibition. At 86 proof, Old Forester delivers a genuine bourbon experience, with rich, full flavor and a smooth character that is ideal for sipping neat, on the rock, with a splash of water or in a classic cocktail.

Old Forester Bourbon Tasting Notes
Sharp and sweet, with a strong floral character that swirls with hints of mint, rich tobacco leaf and vanilla. A touch of oak and pine provides a strong underpinning.
Long, warm and slightly drying. Nice level of sweetness.
Sharp at first, but softens quickly, with hints of oak, sweet corn and rye grain character. Spicy, with soft vanilla and light orange notes.

The Glenlivet Nàdurra First Fill Selection
Nàdurra, meaning “natural” in Gaelic, is The Glenlivet’s range of small-batch expressions made using traditional 19th-century techniques. The Nàdurra First Fill is drawn from casks made of American white oak which have never before been used to mature Scotch whisky. These oak casks, which distillers at The Glenlivet have favored since the early 1900s, impart hints of creamy vanilla to this wonderfully rich single malt. You’ll really taste the effects of that white oak, beautifully complemented by sweet pear, tropical pineapple, ripe banana, and citric sparkle. This is a cask-strength single malt that represents the skill of our team and the tradition of The Glenlivet. And unlike most modern whiskies, this one is non-chill filtered, so it’s very richly textured. It’s an expression that will appeal to the intrepid whisky lover.
Hudson Manhattan Rye (35cl)
A re-emergence of the Rye whiskey which New York was famous for before prohibition halted its production. This is the first rye based whiskey produced in New York's Hudson valley for over 70 years. Doubled distilled in in a pot still it has been aged in small new oak casks which gives a richness of flavour to its spicy edge. Each bottle caries the year of bottling, batch number and bottle number.
Paul John Peated Select Cask
Peated whisky from the Paul John range of single malts produced in Goa. This particular expression was matured in ex-bourbon barrels before being bottled at cask strength (a pleasing 55.5% ABV) without chill filtration. A prime example of the gorgeous whisky distilleries in India are producing.
Widow Jane 10 Year Old
Widow Jane Distillery was founded in 2012 and is owned by Cacao Prieto. Founded by the inventor Daniel Prieto Preston, the company produces a number of whiskeys that are both sourced and distilled in-house. With an office in Brooklyn, NY and distillery 105 miles north of NYC in Red Hook, NY, the whiskey gets its name due to the fact that the company uses water that comes from the Widow Jane Mines in Rosendale, NY. The bourbon is produced in Kentucky and brought to New York for proofing and bottling.
Tullamore Dew 12yr Whiskey
Our 12 Year Old Special Reserve is a carefully crafted blend of old Irish whiskeys.

Like Tullamore D.E.W. Original, Tullamore D.E.W. 12yo Special Reserve is a triple distilled blend of all three types of Irish whiskey. However, it has a high proportion of pot still and malt whiskeys, matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, for 12 to 15 years. A very fine aged whiskey with great complexity.
Bushmills Red Bush
Another addition to our ever expanding Bushmills collection, Bushmills Red Bush. This triple distilled single malt and Irish grain whiskey blend is the first new expression in nearly five years to come from the Old Bushmills Distillery for the domestic market. This particular expression of Bushmills has been matured in first fill Bourbon casks so lots of vanilla and buttery notes can be expected. A very approachable whiskey!
