In Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Greenhook Ginsmiths produces their gins in a custom-made 300-liter Copper Pot Still specifically engineered to work under a vacuum, which removes air pressure from the still. This unique distillation technique allows them to distill their gin at temperatures dramatically lower than ordinary stills—preventing the delicate aromas of their botanicals from becoming stewed by excessive heat. The final product is a lively and aromatic spirit that perfectly balances juniper with equal notes of herbal, floral and citrus.
American Dry Gin
An aromatic yet devilishly complex nose, with
hints of citrus and floral, candied ginger, bitter
herbs, and lemon peel that develop into an equally
complex yet harmonious palate of chamomile,
black pepper, bitter spice, dried citrus rind and
crisp yet lingering finish.
Intricate enough to have just on ice yet with
enough pronounced notes that it comes
through in even fuller bodied cocktails
Diplomático’s distillery lies at the foot of the Andes Mountains in Venezuela, where the purest of waters run to make the very best of rums. They are an independent, family-owned brand that controls the whole production process from field to bottle to create superb quality rums
Candied fruits and a citrus nose leads into just
the faintest notes of butter and spice. The aging
appears in the palate with distinct barley, grass
and toffee notes that meld into a tingly, spicy
Ca' Di Mat
Ca’ di Mat (literally, “House of Fools” in a Piedmontese dialect) is located in the Sierra Gredos, a mountainous region near Madrid. The vineyard is a collaboration between Curro Bareño and Jesus Olivares — the duo behind groundbreaking Galician projects Fedellos de Couto, and Ronsel de Sil — and long-time friends of theirs who own a family farm in the area. Together they work the twenty hectares of the farm, which is planted with a wide variety of trees and fruits.
Ca’ di Mat’s red wines owe their surprisingly light color to the work in their organically raised vines. Curro and Jesus prune lightly, and encourage high productivity aiming for rich vines and big grapes that are “not forced”. Winemaking is non-intrusive, with spontaneous fermentations in concrete. It is hard to believe that these pale reds undergo such long maceration periods—ninety days sometimes—but their work is so delicate, the grapes are foot-trodden softly and the must separated by hand from the skins and stems, that the heat and power of Garnacha give way to a subtly aromatic and fruity juice.

Valautin Garnacha 2018
The village Garnacha comes from multiple micro-vineyards planted around the village of Valdeiglesias on top of shallow soils of decomposed granite. The wine is made from a very long and soft maceration, with whole-clusters, and aged half in concrete and half in used French barrels.
A very different light red for summer. Tastes like strawberry and plum but dry and smooth, unlike any Garnacha I have ever tasted. It is light in color, almost like a rose but the wine is full and bold on the palate. It has flavors of red berries, strawberries, and cherries but with a complimentary earthiness. A soulful wine.
