A bottle of De Kuyper's Vieux Special. Vieux is Dutch brandy which is grain based rather than being grape based, although De Kuyper's uses imported French spirit. We're please to have been able to obtain some of this - it's rarely seen outside the Netherlands.

A high quality Cypriot style grappa, locally called Zibania or Zivania, which has history spanning centuries. Made by KEO, Cyprus' largest drinks company, it's excellent served ice cold alongside meze or dried fruit and nuts.
We thought this was a whisky (it used to call itself whisky anyway) but further inspection reveals it to be a 'Thai spirit', which is distilled from around 95% molasses and 5% rice, then flavoured and coloured (thanks to diffordsguide.com for the info). So really, it's closest to a flavoured rum. Best when mixed long with plenty of ice.
An excellent traditional cachaca from Velho Barreiro. Produced by double distilling sugar cane juice and then ageing in a large oak vat to enhance the complex vegetal flavours. Makes a delicious caipirinha by adding 5cl to 3 coffee spoons of refined sugar cane, a lime cut into either 4 or 8 pieces and crushed ice.
