Historically, the credit for the development of liqueurs goes to the monks of the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance, who created various tonics and beverages to promote health by experimenting with combinations of roots and herbs mixed with a spirit base. Many of those products, including Chartreuse & Benedictine, have survived to this day. Read More »
An old half bottle of Benedictine's B&B Liqueur. This combines the traditional Benedictine liqueur with cognac for a drier alternative to the classic version. We estimate this bottle dates from the 1970s.
A half-litre bottle of Chartreuse Yellow VEP. The ageing period for this ultra-mellow Charteuse is at least eight years and the bottle is presented exactly the same way as in 1840, with a wax seal over a driven cork and a wooden box marked with a branding iron. V.E.P. stands for 'Vieillissement Exceptionnellement Prolongé', meaning 'Exceptionally Long-Aged'.
The 2013 edition of Aalborg's special yearly Jule akvavit, the 32nd such limited edition celebrating the yule-tide season. Produced from a recipe that hasn't changed for over a century, this is best served chilled.
A BIG bottle of Jagermeister, complete with recessed area to help those of us with smaller hands pour from the bottle. The chilled shot of choice for the discerning metal band and an excellent digestif for those without quite so much hair.
A hearty 1.5L magnum of Mentzendorff Kummel, the caraway flavour classic liqueur now recreated by France's Combier distillery. Beautifully packaged in a tall dark magnum with a lovely old-school label.
