Gin – A gift from The House of Orange
Gin was developed from the Dutch Jenever and gained popularity in Great Britain during the time that William of Orange occupied the English, Scottish, and Irish thrones with his wife Mary!  Disputably, the English have perfected this titillating spirits whose flavour comes predominantly from the Juniper Berry.

Today Gin’s popularity is at its highest level in years. Mixoligists across the globe are experimenting and mixing flavourful cocktails and with modern twists, perfecting some of the more traditional gin cocktails.

Antillean Liquors has an interesting and varied selection of Gins and Jenevers ….. and nothing beats a refreshing “Gin and Tonic” to release you from the heat of the tropics ! “Cheers”

Rum – Drink of the Pirates ! rum

Made from sugarcane by products such as molasses or directly from sugarcane juice through a process of fermentation and distillation, rum is synonymous with the Caribbean and Latin America although it is produced in a number of other countries as well.

Rum from the English islands (Trinidad, Grenada, St. Lucia, Barbados, Jamaica, Antigua) tend to be fuller flavoured and retain more of a molasses flavor, and Jamaican rums tend to be higher in alcohol content.

The Spanish islands (Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic) traditionally produce aged rums or Ron Añejo which are quite smooth.  The white rums produced in these islands tend to be quite dry.

The French Rum (Rhum) from Martinique, Gaudaloupe, and Haiti are exclusively produced from sugarcane juice retaining the cane flavour. These rums are known as Rhum Agricole. They do not mix as well with carbonated beverages as they do with tropical fruit juices such as passion, mango, amongst others. The traditional Rhum Agricole drink is the “Ti-Ponch” (petit ponch or small punch).  In a small short glass add brown raw sugar, a quarter lime with peel squeezed and dropped into the glass, top with rhum agricole. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.

Vodka – Wodka ! 

Traditionally vodka or wodka is made through the distillation of grains or potatoes …. Today, the more modern distillers do not shy away from using fruits and or sugars to distill vodka.  The origin of vodka remains a contested dispute to this day …. however,  with limited archives in the history books it is Poland’s claim dating back to the 8th century is when vodka was first distilled. That said it was not until the 11th Century that the first identifiable vodka brand was recorded …. again a Polish brand ! Accordingly it was not until later in the 14th century that the first Russian vodkas were distilled. Today vodka is distilled in almost every corner of the world and has become one of the most called for spirits in the beverage industry. From “triple distilled” to “continuous distillation” and from “citrus flavoured” to “peanut butter and jelly flavoured” todays vodka challenges the imagination of not only the produces, but also those that consume this spirited spirit… just ask James Bond !

Brandy – Brandewijn – burned wine…..

As brandy is derived from distilling wine … brandy is produced wherever wine is produced or simply all across the wine making world.  The term is also used to denote liqueurs made from distilling wine from other fruits than just grapes …. E.g. Apricot Brandy.

The most famous of brandies are produced in France … Cognac and Armagnac.  The former is exclusively from the Cognac region and the latter exclusively from the Gascony area, both in the South west of France. As with tequila these are protected designation of origin.  Any other brandy produced outside of these areas may not be called “cognac” or “Armagnac”, hence the saying “All cognacs are brandy, but not all brandy is cognac”.  This is not to say that there are not some excellent quality brandy produced in other countries as well as in France.  Brandy although predominantly enjoyed after a hearty meal is also often an ingredient used in the preparation of the meal itself.  Think “flambé”.

At Antillean Liquors we offer a wide selection of all sorts of French brandy including Cognac, Armagnac, Calvados, and the types that derive from fruits.  Our gift selection of aged cognac is on display.

One, Two, Three, Floor! Tequila!

If it was not produced in the State of Jalisco, and limited municipalities in the states of Guanajuato, Michoacan, Najarit, and Tamaulipas, Mexico from Blue Agave that was grown in this area… it is not Tequila! Tequila is recognized as a Mexican designation of Origin in more than forty countries. The most common distils are Plata (Silver), Anejo (aged at least 12 months), and Reposado (Rested at least 2 months). Today many Tequila producers have raised the bar with master blends, longer aging periods, and resting single barrel selections in Oak barrels that have been used for port, sherry, or wine imparting a hint of extra flavor with each passing hour.

The Margarita remains the top selling cocktail in the U.S.A. till today.  The call to “Lick, Shoot, Suck” also known as “a shot of tequila” is also an immortalized manner in which to consume tequila. In Mexico the traditional method of consumption is to sip fine tequila with a side of “Sangrita”, a mix of Orange Juice, Tomato juice and hot chili. The two are sipped alternately without lime or salt.  The NOM (marked on each bottle of tequila) is the Mexican Government authentication that regulates the production according the law.  An absence of the NOM may mean that you are drinking a “mixto” which is made using only 51% blue agave, and will have cost you substantially less to buy!

Discover our selection of Tequila… it contains some of the finest brands to be found.

Liqueurs – not just for sipping…

Liqueurs are alcoholic beverages that are bottled with added sugars as well as flavours derived from a variety of other products such as nuts, cream, chocolate, coffee, herbs, fruits, spices… generally they are quite sweet and tend to be on the syrupy side. Although many liqueurs are enjoyed “neat” or “on the rocks” (with an ice cube or two), today they have found themselves into a variety of traditional and modern cocktails, layered shooters, and even variations of the Irish Coffee! Some of the more common concoctions include the “BBC” – a blended frozen combination of irish cream liqueur, banana’s, and coconut cream – “The Golden Margarita – where orange cognac liqueur replaces the triple sec – and the “Mexican Coffee” where coffee liqueur replaces the Irish whiskey!

In some countries liqueurs are referred to as “schnapps” or “cordials” … but in almost all cases they are descendants of herbal medicines – so when you hear Grandpa announce that he is going for “a cup of medicine” do not be surprised if he heads to the liqueur cabinet!

At Antillean Liquors our “medicine cabinet” boasts a wide assortment of liqueurs from every corner of the globe.

Ports, Sherries, Vermouths ….. all fortified wines !   

A fortified wine is a distilled wine that has had brandy added to it in order to preserve it.  The process also adds some distinct flavours to the end product.

Port (Portugal) and Sherry (Spain) both come in a variety of expressions, some sweet some dry, and some in between. Some are aged (LBV) late bottled vintages, while others are younger imparting a fruitier and lighter drink.  Vermouth (Italy) differs in that this fortified wine has herbs and spices added to produce stronger flavours. Vermouth is available in Sweet (Bianco and Rosso) expressions as well as an Extra Dry expression.

Other types of fortified wines include Marsala, Madiera, and Moscatel.

eurs from every corner of the globe.

bittersBitters/Absinth/Anisette and Pastis 

The common denominator here is “botanical” flavouring.

Bitters, originally developed as medicinal concoctions to treat digestive and stomach ailments have today become favourite digestives and cocktail as well as flavour enhancers in foods, deserts and other cocktails. Bitters come in a variety of forms including Aromatic, Amaro, Orange, liqueurs, and more.

Absinth, banned in 1915 in many countries including the U.S. slowly found its way back in to the mainstream in the 1990’s when many countries lifted the ban following European food and beverage regulations that did not prohibit the production or use of this spirit.  Known as a bohemian culture favourite, Absinth was the drink of choice for many artists and writers including Ernest Hemmingway, Edgar Alan Poe, Vincent van Gogh, and Pablo Picasso amongst others.  The bitter, anise flavoured Absinth, nicknamed the “Green Fairy” has often been portrayed as an addictive psychoactive drug and a hallucinogen which had much to do with it being banned. This ban in turn led to the creation of similar Anise flavoured spirits that were enjoyed in much the same manner as Absinth – adding just a splash of water – but were not illegal.

Anisette and Pastis, most popular if not solely to the French, is one of France’s most popular aperitifs, enjoyed in a medium sized highball glass with one cube of ice and a splash of cold water which turns the clear liquor into a cloudy drink.  Anisette is produced through a distillation process whereas Pastis uses a maceration process, but both share a similarity in taste, powerful and intriguing but at the same time sweet and agreeable!
