The Sparkling Wine – Ferrari Trento

The creation of Ferrari Trento is all down to the highly regarded Giulio Ferrari, who started his journey back in 1902, he started creating his extraordinary vineyard/winery in the divine Trento city in Italy that then started creating unforgettable Sparkling Wines. Giulio wanted to be able to turn the area of Trentino into a place capable of competing with the finest French Champagnes and I think it’s safe to say that his dream became a reality.

Interesting Fact – He knew the area of Trentino was a good location to plant vines, so after choosing the location he had the challenge of picking the vines he wanted to plant, he went for Chardonnay and ended up becoming the first person to make substantial plantings of Chardonnay in Italy.

Ferrari Trento is also the Official Toast of Formula 1, with Matteo Lunelli, President & CEO of Ferrari Trento was quoted on saying: “We are very excited to announce this partnership with Formula 1 which is both an achievement and a starting point for us. It’s an achievement because it demonstrates the renown and the appeal that Ferrari Trento wines enjoy internationally, thanks to our team that works tirelessly across the board. It’s a starting point because we are just beginning this extraordinary adventure that will allow us to bring the Italian Art of Living to the celebrations of Formula 1. We decided to embark on this project even in this complex time that the world is currently experiencing because we strongly believe in the future of Ferrari Trento.”

Ferrari Trento – Maximum Blanc de Blancs – Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Crisp green apples, orchard fruits, minerals, chalky, with yellow fruits, honeysuckle, yellow rose petals and wild yellow floral on the aroma, if you leave it in the glass for a few minutes, it’ll start to open up with rising oaky character, toast and smoked meat.”

Flavour – “Delicate green apples, fresh green apple skins, with minerals, wet stones, chalky, almost saline, with ripe juicy yellow fruits, yellow rose petals and yellow floral notes on the palate, the palate gets richer after a while in the glass, almost like golden honey, hints of oak chips and charred oak.”

The Rum – Pull The Pin

Founder, Tom Foster grew up as a curious kid in a family of chefs, joining the military at seventeen, Tom Foster got the opportunity to travel across the world, picking up knowledge of the local spirit production and experiencing the world’s many spices, he became known as the ‘Spice Soldier’, helping to boost morale with experimental spirits and spiced-up rations.

While in the military his love of Rum grew, from a drink on Christmas morning to warm him up after ice-breaking drills in Norway.

After an injury, he left his Army Commando career behind and stepped into his next adventure, the path was clear for him.

“Spice livens up your life, leads you on adventures and warms your body and soul. For me, creating Pull The Pin was always going to be my natural next step.” – Tom Foster – Founder

If Tom is Pull The Pin’s mellow Spiced Rum then Kerry Francis has to be our Passionfruit & Pineapple Rum… full of sunshine and zest for life.

Kerry lives life with enthusiasm and gives her all in everything she does. She’s full of endless questions about the world and fascinated by all she sees.

Kerry and Tom first met while working in their military careers, he soon realised she’d be a perfect business partner, who would then help bring Pull The Pin into the world.

Flavour – “The palate is much the same, just in a more delicate tone, with the minerals, yellow fruits, oaky and sweet spices taking the lead, along with a touch of subtle fizzy citrus to surprise you at the close.”
