Beefeater's Borrough's Reserve Gin is made to founder James Burrough's original 1860 recipe. Distilled by hand using his original 'Still number 12' with a 268 litre capacity, it is then rested in French oak barrels which used to contain Lillet - the first gin ever to do so. There are notes of citrus and subtle spice.

Following one of the best (and sweetest) sugar cane harvests in Venezuelan history, Diplomatico decided to release a single vintage rum from the year 2000. This exceptional rum was distilled in a combination of old copper pot stills and a batch kettle, then aged for 12 years in bourbon and single malt whisky casks before being finished in sherry wood.

A single cask bottling of 1998 vintage Laphroaig, one of a small range of excellent casks chosen by TWE and bottled by Signatory. This whisky is a fantastic slap in the face, with huge sherry notes combined with big Laphroaig peat and intense flavour thanks to its high natural strength. A must for sherry heads.

A European release of the increasingly legendary Don Julio 1942 tequila, named for the eponymous Don who passed away in 2012. A rich, old and chocolatey tequila with the trademark pepper notes backed up by loads of fruit. Impressive.

Vesper is a special cuvee from Delamain, with the cognacs used all coming from the Grande Champagne area and having an average age of around 35 years old. After assemblage, the blend is returned to oak casks for a further two years to marry. A dense, rich cognac showing plenty of leather & tobacco flavours.

To make this Dalmore King Alexander III, Master Distiller Richard Paterson has selected a range of differently-aged malts matured in a mixure of French wine casks, Madeira drums, Sherry butts, Marsala barrels, Port pipes and Bourbon barrels from Kentucky. A remarkable feat of blending.

A truly fantastic long-aged rum from Jamaica's most respected producer, Appleton 21yo has everything you could ask for in a top-end rum - real richness and depth of flavour and a fabulously smooth texture and mouthfeel. Just brilliant.

A big bottle of Glendronach 12 year old. The distillery was mothballed between 1996 to 2002 and since its reopening has experienced something of a renaissance. In 2009, the core range was relaunched and the 12 year old is now fully matured in Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks to give a deliciously rich and spicy malt.

Talisker super-premium releases from Diageo have been uniformly excellent. This is no disappointment - a bit more sherry influence has made this an absolute cracker. Roars across the palate, then caresses the tastebuds on the finish.
