Just In

Plymouth Gin Navy Strength 114 Proof
When gunpowder goes bang the ’proof’ of the alcohol strength is at least 100 proof (114 US proof) or 57% alcohol by volume. The gunpowder was used as the test for ’proving’ there was the expected level of alcohol in the clear liquid. Plymouth Gin Navy Strength first went to sea in 1793 with the Royal Navy. The Royal Navy Supply Offices ’Pussers’ needed to check what they were buying was what they had ordered. The Pussers would use gunpowder.

Some New Whiskies

Sheep Dip Amoroso Oloroso 1999 Whiskey
 Sheep Dip Oloroso Sherry Cask, a blended malt by master blender Richard Paterson, spent the first three years of its life in Bourbon Hogsheads in Scotland, then, like an East End gangster, took an extended holiday to Spain where it spent 9 years in Oloroso Sherry butts. The vastly different climate has had an amazing effect on the spirit, creating a concentrated, sweet blend that's oh so tasty.
Nose: Vanilla, caramel, butter, popcorn (like really sweet popcorn), caramelized sugar, icing sugar, almonds, cherries and tangerines.
Palate: Still got that vanilla cream coming through. Apples, marzipan and tangerines.
Finish: Slight peppery note comes in after the huge amounts of sweetness

Larceny Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
It is actually the story of the Old Fitzgerald brand, made famous by the late Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle Sr., that forms the historical basis for Larceny Bourbon. According to industry lore, John E. Fitzgerald had founded his distillery in Frankfort , KY shortly after the Civil War ended, making his Bourbon available only to steamship lines, rail lines and private clubs. This story was furthered by S.C Herbst, who owned the “Old Fitz” brand from the 1880’s through Prohibition, and “Pappy” Van Winkle, who purchased the brand during Prohibition and made it his signature label. However, it was revealed by Pappy’s granddaughter, Sally Van Winkle Campbell, in her 1999 book But Always Fine Bourbon—Pappy Van Winkle and the Story of Old Fitzgerald, that in fact John E. Fitzgerald was not a famous distiller at all. He was in reality a treasury agent who used his keys to the warehouses to pilfer Bourbon from the finest barrels. His discerning palate led those barrels to which he chose to help himself being referred to as “Fitzgerald barrels”.
Now Heaven Hill has launched Larceny, whose tagline—“A taste made famous by an infamous act”—sets history straight.
Aroma: Fresh bread and toffoo, with a note of butterscotch
Taste: Buttery caramel and honeyed notes, with a rich mouthfeel
Finish: Long, Gently sweet and savory
