'Spirits' (AKA 'hard liquor') is the term for all distilled alcohol - in fact, the name 'spirit' came from alchemists who believed the vapor of distillation was a 'spirit' of the original material. Technically 'spirits' and 'liqueurs' are different - spirits have no added sugar, while liqueurs do - but they tend to be lumped together. Virtually all known spirits were used as health tonics or elixirs at some point in history, but transmuted into good fun drinks over time. Many countries have their 'national' drink - gin, whisky, schnapps, grappa, ouzo, soju, vodka, rakia/rakija...there's quite a list. Experiments began with sugars and flavours - resulting in limoncello, cynar, Benedictine...that's an even longer list.
  1. Traditionally brewed to be elegantly sweet with a crisp acidity and an aroma that hints of Muscat grapes.

  2. Italicus is lightly citrusy on the nose with hints of rose and lavender. On the palate, fresh tones of ripe citrus fruits are balanced with a light bitter and floral spice before giving way to a complex and long lasting finish.
    $69.95 Bottle
  3. Beautifully smooth and broad on the palate, this premium sake delivers a pleasant aroma that hints of banana. Rice polishing rate: 45%
  4. Four Pillars' third release in the Distiller Series - a collaboration with fellow winner of the IWSC Gin Distillery of the year, Kyoto Distillery. Changing Seasons Gin has big bright aromas of pine needle, green citrus from yuzu and desert lime, and light green tea. The quandong and kinmokusei flowers add a fruit flavour and the texture is driven by hinoki, red pine and dense juniper.
    $89.95 Bottle
  5. The most important thing in making The CHOYA is to use higher quality plums. Choya has been working with ume farmers to create good soil, and has been pursuing plums suitable for plum wine. The CHOYA uses 100% of Kishu-produced Nanko ume, and carefully selects and uses ume with a high ripeness and rich fragrance.
  6. Haku is the premium Japanese craft vodka from the House of Suntory. Its unique creation process starts in Kagoshima and ends in Osaka, Japan.

    Out of stock

  7. From wild and beautiful Central Otago, comes New Zealand’s first artisanal wine-based botanical Aperitivo.
  8. A refreshing Pink Gin. Fresh Rhubarb, Curious Dry and a little added sweetness makes a delicious sweet zesty Gin. Best enjoyed with plenty of ice, tonic and friends!
    $69.95 Bottle
  9. Original Australian Bitters is hand crafted from over 20 natural botanical herbs and spices. In the pursuit of perfection, only ingredients of the highest quality are used, resulting in unparalleled quality and a far superior taste.
  10. The delivery, though controlled at first, is massive! Then more like con-fusion as that smoke on the nose turns into warming, full blown peat, but it far from gets its own way as a vague sherry trifle note (curious, seeing how there are no sherry butts involved) - the custard presumably is oaky vanilla - hammers home that barley - fruitiness to make for a bit of a free-for-all; but for extra food measure the flavours develop into a really intense chocolate fudge middle which absolute resonates through the palate.
  11. The art of making fine bourbon first took place on the site of the Woodford Reserve Distillery, a National Historic Landmark, in 1812. The perfectly balanced taste of our Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is comprised of more than 200 detectable flavor notes, from bold grain and wood, to sweet aromatics, spice, and fruit & floral notes.

    Out of stock

  12. This spirit is literally the 'Taste of Australia'. It's an Amaro - a type of bitter/herbal aperitif that have been popular for more than a century - famous for it's use in the Negroni or Spritz. We like to take an Australian-spin on things - and dry aperitifs seem to epitomise a renaissance in contemporary Australian drinking.
