- Craft Gin
There are countless brands that offer creative twists on the traditional gin formula: Hendricks, with cucumber and rose; Aviation, with lavender and sarsaparilla; The Botanist, with mint and chamomile. While all of these newer brands provide exciting variations on the typical gin flavor profile, their ability to deliver effectively in a wide range of cocktails is limited. Fords is the melding of both worlds, in that our high juniper content firmly establishes our credentials as a classic London dry, but has a unique blend of florals, spices, and citrus underneath it to give it a more current twist.
- Aroma : Juniper, coriander & angelica up front with developing layers of citrus, jasmine & hints of vanilla in the background. Bright & expressive on the nose.
- Flavor : Fresh, round citrus profiles on the opening with a light sweetness and blossoming bouquet of orris, cassia & grapefruit.
- Texture : Medium body, viscous & silky on the palate. Long, lingering mouthfeel.
- Intangibles : Impeccably balanced without anyone botanical dominating. Finishes dry with full-figured notes of grapefruit peel & long-lasting juniper impression.

Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select
When Frank was first introduced to Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, it was the beginning of a lifelong friendship that would come to define good taste. For more than 50 years they characterized gentleman’s class, and the very essence of the good life.

Before bottling, each drop is delicately balanced for a smooth, refined character.
Nose : Soft honey, fresh apples and a bold oak note at the centre.
Taste : Yummy butterscotch notes which turn into yummier caramel notes, rich and warm. Hints of orange zest and a subtle smokiness.
Finish : Packed with vanilla and smooth as Sinatra’s voice.SKU: JKD13-NV01000-WT

Nose : The dark ripe fruit from Château Mont Pérat Bordeaux red wine comes through as an overlay of brambleberries, dried cherries and huckleberry sauce over soft sherry- infused maple syrup and Madagascar vanilla beans. Truly complex, indeed.
