Mattei Cap Corse Rouge
Among the most famous of French Quinquina, enjoyed for generations by visitors and residents of the Island of Corsica. It is composed of a variety of local and exotic spices, walnuts and cinchona bark on a base of Corsican Muscat and Vermentinu mistelles. The result is an aperitif of tremendous depth with a wonderfully dry finish. Traditionally served neat or on ice with tonic or soda. It mixes well with rye whiskey, apple brandy or brandy. Since its creation in 1872 by Louis-Napoléon Mattei, Cap Corse Mattei is the oldest and best known aperitif of Corsica. Still today family owned, and all macerations, aging and bottling are done in house. Full details
The Scarlet Ibis Trinidad Rum
Scarlet Ibis is a blend of three- to five-year aged Trinidad rums, with classic flavors of toffee, tobacco, and dark honey on a firm, dry backbone. This is old-school rum, without the now-common influence of other wines and spirits, chill filtration, excess dilution, or added sugar. Scarlet Ibis shines in a Corn 'n' Oil, Palmetto (Rum Manhattan), and Mai Tai, as well as in simple sour drinks. This project, named for the national bird of Trinidad, was originally commissioned and blend-selected by Death & Co in New York. Full details
