A little tipple?

Holy Grass Vodka

Hand-crafted in the far North of Scotland, Holy Grass Vodka, hails from the multi-award winning Dunnet Bay Distillery in Caithness.  It features the unusual botanical Holy Grass (or Anthoxanthum nitens), once discovered on the banks of the nearby Thurso River by Robert Dick.

Holy Grass, so-called as it was once used to bring a sweet, vanilla smell to church floors, brings a wonderful and distinct herbaceous flavour to his new vodka.  A celebration of local produce and ingredients, the spirit is also infused with a carefully crafted vapour of Highland apples and apple juice, to complement the sweetness of the Holy Grass.  The result is a delicate and fresh vodka with a creamy smooth finish.

The craft vodka is carefully distilled by husband and wife team, Martin and Claire Murray, who have devised a secret and completely unique way to distil the vodka, using Elizabeth, their traditional copper pot still, and Caithness stone.  They hope to emulate the success of Rock Rose Gin, which they launched earlier in the year to critical acclaim and which featured hand-foraged, local botanicals.

Fleet of HMS miniatures

Mary Rose Gin is our first and flagship spirit. We use 100% organic British wheat grain spirit as the base for this well balanced juniper led London Dry, adding pink grapefruit peel to liven the front of the palate and rosemary for a soft subtle finish.

Dreadnought Gin is the second in our fleet, a navy strength gin at 57.5%, so-called because a warship’s gunpowder could still ignite, even if soaked in the spirit.  A well-balanced juniper led London Dry Gin, adding subtle notes of grapefruit to liven the front of the palate followed by a soft rosemary finish. It’s carefully distilled in small batches using a copper pot still and retains a slightly higher essential oil content which gives it a richness and ensures its smoothness on the palate.

Elizabeth Gin is the third in our fleet, a delicate balance of botanicals, a classic London Dry Gin and a natural elderflower distillate, producing a juniper led gin on the nose followed by light flowery and honey like tones, ensuring a crisp, palate-cleansing finish.

Wasabi Vodka

Distilled with the power and flavour of a fresh English wasabi, this small batch vodka captures and releases the flavour and fire of real wasabi. Made with real wasabi and nothing else, it is no wonder the flavour and pungent heat is so fresh and powerful.

A small batch of wasabi-flavoured vodka from Winchester Distillery’s Twisted Nose range. This boldly-flavoured spirit is made with freshly-grated wasabi, as well as six other botanicals, which are all macerated in British grain spirit and re-distilled. The distillers suggest trying it in a Bloody Mary, which sounds pretty awesome indeed! Top stuff from the beautiful city of Winchester.

Tasting notes:

A long-lasting character examination of the essence of fresh wasabi. Bold brassica flavours of mustard and radish brood enticingly under the sweetness and light of the volatile fire of wasabi as it rises, shines and ascends to the nose with high notes of star anise and pepper.

Serve over ice, pairs perfectly with sushi & sashimi.

Hendrick’s Gin

This Father’s Day why not step away from the mundanity of socks and mugs, and treat the best dad in town to something a little more unusual and a tad more delectable: a bottle of Hendrick’s Gin. After all – what better way to say thank you to the man who keeps life peculiar with his cracking jokes, unwavering support and questionable dress sense – than a marvellous bottle of Hendrick’s Gin, a delightfully curious gift any father will love to receive.

Distilled and bottled in Scotland, Hendrick’s Gin is made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most delightful arrangement. This super-premium spirit is distilled with no less than 11 of the finest botanicals for a perfectly balanced liquid, and then oddly infused with rose and cucumber essences which elevate any drink with a deliciously fresh and floral finish. It’s no surprise that Hendrick’s provides the ideal libation for such Father’s Day celebrations.

But if you are looking for a perfectly peculiar gift for your wonderfully peculiar father, then you must go for Hendrick’s Gin Cucumber Curler Gift Set – giving him everything he needs to make a most refreshing Hendrick’s Gin & Tonic, as this Cucumber Curling Apparatus creates superbly sumptuous cucumber spirals to freshen your drink. While you’re at it, why not gift him a cucumber too – after all, it really is the only way to garnish Hendrick’s don’t you know!

Hendrick’s Gin is available to buy from all good retailers. Available in 70cl (RRP £30), 43.4% ABV. Hendrick’s Gin & Midsummer Solstice Duo Gift Set (2 x 70cl, RRP £65) and Hendrick’s Gin Cucumber Curler Gift Set (70cl and Cucumber Curler, £35.29) are both available to buy from Amazon.

Tiki Pineapple Rum

Pineapple and rum, a match made in Tiki heaven. Created by the folks behind The Bitter Truth bitters range, Tiki Lovers Pineapple Rum takes its inspiration from way back when Caribbean distillers would macerate pineapples in sugar cane spirit, imparting a fruity dimension to their rum. This expression uses pineapples from South America, which are then pressed and infused into the rum. Speaking of which, the rum is a blend of aged & unaged Jamaican pot still rum from Hampden Estate and Worthy Park, alongside three year old Barbados rum from Foursquare aged in bourbon barrels, and finally some young column still rums from both Trinidad and Guyana. That’s quite a blend!

White Heron Cassis

What happens when you take a farm that’s been growing blackcurrants for over 100 years (much of which has gone into Ribena) and turn their expertise to producing a vibrant blackcurrant liqueur or “alcoholic mixer”? Unsurprisingly, it turns out rather well indeed! You may have seen Jo Hilditch on Countryfile or Dragon’s Den (where she turned down four offers), but she had been making cassis from her White Heron British blackcurrants for ten years before that. Each bottle contains 95% pressed fruit juice alongside champagne yeast and sugar – nothing else added! Makes an awesome Kir Royale.

Gentleman Jack 

This Father’s Day put a smile on his face even if you can’t be there, with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack. Inspired by the original gentleman distiller, Mr. Jack Daniel himself, this exceptionally smooth Tennessee whiskey is an ideal gift for the modern dad.

Setting it apart from the rest of the family, Gentleman Jack is mellowed through Jack Daniel’s signature sugar maple charcoal not once, but twice. It is this second charcoal mellowing that distinguishes it from the rest, creating a well-rounded, easy-drinking whiskey with exceptional smoothness. With balanced flavours of oak, vanilla and caramel, the double-mellowed spirit suits the outgoing dad that likes to make a statement.

For those looking to raise a virtual glass to the man that raised them, Jack Daniel’s GentlemanJack is best served on the rocks or in a classic Whiskey Sour cocktail.

Le Grand Cros

Le Grand Cros has announced that its eagerly awaited cuvée Aurélia 2019 will be available to buy in the UK from 15th June.

Hailing from Côtes de Provence and originally launched by award-winning wine producer Julian Faulkner with a 2015 vintage named in honour of his eldest child, Aurelia was created to showcase the very best of the terroir at Le Grand Cros. At the same time, it would take rosé beyond the pool/beach side lunch setting and offer discerning drinkers a fuller-bodied, more structured and altogether more serious take on the region’s classically light rosé.

With its elegant pink hue with salmon reflections, the Aurélia 2019’s nose is expressive and complex, with some floral notes, candied melon and mango, sweet spices (cinnamon) with a little zesty lift of grapefruit. The mouth, ripe and full, is balanced. A beautiful structure reinforces the original and elegant character of this gastronomic rosé.

As we emerge from this global public health crisis, it’s important that we continue to prioritise mental wellbeing for both ourselves and those around us. In fact, a new survey conducted by Headspace, the leading mindfulness and meditation app, has found more than a third (36 %) of Brits believe they are kinder now than prior to restrictions being placed on everyday life, and 39% are kinder to themselves.

To that end, Headspace has launched new gift cards exclusively in partnership with Boots UK, encouraging consumers to continue their good deeds by giving the gift of mindfulness this Father’s Day (or to treat yourself or someone else in your life this summer).

The gift cards come in four content themes: Mind, Health, Sleep and Focus. Details of the specific Headspace courses that are included in each theme are below.

  • Retailer: Boots.com
  • Available: June 10th onwards
  • RRP: £30 for 6 months Headspace membership

Each collection is perfectly suited for meditation experts who’re looking to expand their knowledge or beginners wanting to bring some daily mindfulness into their lives.
