We were truly mesmerized by this rich and silky Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep, dark berry fruit combined with well balanced French oak and smooth tannins create a intoxicating mouth feel. A delicious wine on its own but will pair exquisitely with sticky barbecued ribs or fried tofu with a spicy ginger-sesame sauce.

Aperol originated in 1919 in Padova, Ital. It was a product of the Barbieri Brothers who launched the revolutionary idea of an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11% alcohol. Today Aperol has become a classic apéritif and increasingly popular in cocktail recipes around the world. Bright orange in color it has a unique bitter-sweet taste deriving from a secret recipe that has remained unchanged since its creation. An infusion of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and cinchona combined with herbs and roots create a perfectly balanced elixir. Aperol is milder in flavor and half the alcohol content of its Campari cousin.
Together with 3 parts of Prosecco, 2 parts of Aperol and a dash of seltz, Aperol makes the perfect Spritz -the irresistible Italian Aperol Spritz.

Broker’s Gin is made in a 200-year-old distillery in the heart of England using a traditional copper pot-still. The recipe is as old as the distillery. A quadruple-distilled pure grain spirit made from English wheat is redistilled with ten traditional botanicals, creating a gin of outstanding flavour and smoothness. This extremely dry and serious juniper heavy Gin calls for martini's and a kaftan.
A classy aperitif ,il Specialino, an alcoholic bitter with a base of aromatized wine, obtained from the infusion of bitter Alpine herbs characterized by an intense aroma and ruby red colour.

It is made from a century old secret formula that skilfully blends white wine, herbs and selected spices which are left to steep in the alcohol. During this time of infusion, it is mixed by hand daily. After natural sedimentation the liquid is filtered, bottled and labelled. -Distiller's Notes
It is difficult to imagine a liqueur more elegant than Chambord. It became an instant success when it was introduced in the early 1980s and has been a top-shelf denizen since its arrival. Now, Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur is featured in such a large repertoire of classic and contemporary cocktails alike that the brand is permanently enrolled in the "must have" class. In the hands of the inspired, the super-premium brand has no creative limits. Chambord is made on the premises of a traditional Loire Valley Chateau south of Paris in Cour-Cheverny France. The liqueur is crafted using all-natural ingredients. An infusion of fresh raspberries and blackberries is married with a proprietary blend of natural black raspberry fruit extract, cognac, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and delicate herbs and spices. Everything about Chambord is sensational. The intrigue begins with its opaque appearance and extremely deep, ruby/purple hue. The liqueur has a luxuriously textured, medium-weight body and a wafting herbal and fruit bouquet. The semisweet palate is a lavish affair of raspberries, spice, herbs and a taste of honey. The flavors persist on the palate for a remarkably long finish. Chambord was inspired by a unique, black raspberry liqueur produced in the Loire Valley of France in the late 17th Century. While visiting the Chateau de Chambord, King Louis XIV sampled the liqueur and became immediately enamored with it. The rest is history.

The lovely Vin Rouge displays bright red fruit, earth and wet limestone aromas with a hint of citrus on the nose. Wild strawberries play on the tongue ending with a lingering finish of raspberries, lemon curd, minerals and light tannins. Irresistible on it's own but also pairs elegantly with spring field greens, goat cheese and fresh strawberries.
Using the same recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine French Vermouth. The exact recipes are a closely guarded secret, but there are up to 54 different plants used, most notably wormwood, but also hyssop, camomile, genepi, chincona bark and rose petals found in the Alpine meadows above Chambéry. Ugni Blanc grapes from the region combined with the Alpine botanicals impart a fresh and elegant nose, with a subtle and complex palate. Dolin Dry is classically herbal with hints of stone fruit, tarragon and lemon verbena. Ideal as an aperitif on ice with a twist of citrus or in a broad array of traditional cocktails. -Distiller's Notes

The wine was aged in stainless steel for 10 months before bottling with no SO2. This has all the bright, red-fruited characteristics common to Cilegiolo but has the signature rustic and earthy notes typical of Caspri. -Importer's Notes
