Anno Kent Dry Gin
This Gin has the juniper flavour not quite sitting in the back seat, but the other flavours such as the elderflower bursts and other gentle floral, savoury spicy overlays are just bubbling above the juniper base line. This gin sits in The Gin Sat Nav grid position D3
The 16 botanicals used are sourced from Kent, which includes local hops, elder-flower, lavender, rosehip and the unusual addition of samphire.
Castel Firmian Chardonnay
Tasting Notes:Elegant, fruity nose with hints of red apples, apricot, white melon and citrus fruit. The palate is dry and crisp.

Copper Head- the alchemist’s Gin Set
Copperhead London Dry, I have positioned it in the grey area on the grid C3.
This is because it picks up on all four major flavour profiles in terms of its taste. The juniper and orange zest flavours are in balance which gives a slight sweetness in the finish.The over all effect is one of elegance, ie no one thing overpowering another.
This is a great party piece set. An Alchemist definition is ‘the practice of any seemingly magical process of transforming or combining elements into something new’.
This Gin Set is a lot of fun!
With this gin, if you get standard tonic water and ice with the copperhead gin, and a slice of lemon, you get a superb classic gin and tonic. That is version one.
Version two, you get the same measure of gin but add one drop of one of the bitters in the set, and then repeat the ice, lemon and tonic.you get a completely different tasting gin and tonic. Version 3 and 4 are by using the other two bitters.
That’s four different drinks. Now change the tonic water, say a Fevertree Mediterranean tonic water and repeat the same process , that gives you a total of 8 combinations! Now try with say an Elderflower tonic water that gives you a total of 12 combinations. how much fun is that. One bottle of gin three bitters 12 different serves.
Price includes 2nd class post for UK only, (can only be sent as single bottles)
Dauntless gin sits nicely in position C2 of The Gin Sat Nav grid.
Dauntless is a premium quality and strength London Dry Gin. Dauntless’ 43% alcohol level distinguishes it from lower strength alternatives. The grain spirit is made only from English Wheat, sourced from the North of England.
The distillation process is using traditional copper pot stills, some dating back to the 1800’s. There are fourteen botanicals in the mix including specially selected blue and white poppies. We believe these give a unique element to the taste but they are also there for remembrance.
London Dry Gin is all about the production process used, and this is the best there is, it’s where a traditional still is used and where the re-distillation process is using only approved natural flavourings. No colours or sweeteners are added.
Hermitage 1914 Borderies cognac
The New Wine shop has tried some cognacs in its time. This is the one to beat.
The liquid is the most exquisite cognac we have ever tasted. The ‘ Rancio’ is stunning.
(Rancio is the flavour, mark of uniqueness, rarity and complexity. Rancio is the smell of the time.)
So much quality, so little stocks, so much to miss, so much richness, so much balance…. so…… I have given it the golden buzzer treatment, I have included it in the Bucket List
Cognac Masters 2012 – Master Award
This exceptionally rare and sought after cognac was found in an old cellar to the north of Cognac. Just don’t hang about, there are not many bottles left in the world.
“My most prized bottle is a 1914 Cognac Hermitage Borderies which has an incredible spectrum of flavours, from toffee to walnuts.” Olly Smith, Journalist & TV Presenter
Jekka’s Edition 6 ‘O’ Clock gin
Fabulously Fresh Herbal Gin
6 O’clock Gin has launched a new edition of their ‘strikingly
smooth’ London Dry Gin, in collaboration with Jekka McVicar,
the internationally-renowned expert in the cultivation and use
6 O’clock London Dry Gin: Jekka’s Edition is an aromatic,
herbal gin made in small batches at the family-run 6 O’clock
distillery. Freshly picked herbs from Jekka McVicar’s famous
herb farm is delivered early in the morning and distilled on
the same day with the ‘strikingly smooth’ London Dry Gin.
A ‘fabulously fresh’ flavour is achieved with gentle herbal and
floral aromas and a refreshing herb and lemon taste.
Jekka McVicar, crowned “the queen of herbs” by Jamie Oliver,
has been growing herbs organically since 1984. She is a well-known
personality in the gardening world having won more
than 60 Gold Medals for herb exhibits at RHS flower shows.
She is a best-selling author and a regular guest on TV and radio
gardening and cookery programmes.
“It was an opportunity I couldn’t miss” commented Jekka. “The
distillery is just down the road from my farm and the 6 O’clock
team are as knowledgeable and passionate about gin as I am
about herbs. I knew together we would create something really
special. The herbs are all picked and delivered early, ready for
distillation on the same day, so the resulting aromatic dry gin
has a fabulously fresh herbal flavour. I’d recommend adding a
sprig of mint as the final touch for a truly delicious G&T!”
6 O’clock London Dry Gin: Jekka’s Edition (40% ABV) comes
in a 70cl bottle with an RSP of £38. Available from all good
