Nautical Cocktail

Dive deep, it’s time to venture into the unknown, a place less explored than outer space, we’re about to dive into the deep blue sea, ready to discover creatures long forgotten, treasure lost to time, and wrecks homing new life.

Ruggeri Prosecco

Deeply rooted in the tradition of winemaking, the history of Ruggeri Winery began in 1950, founded by Giustino Bisol and his cousin, whose surname, Ruggeri, they adopted as part of the brand for their company.

In the early days, Ruggeri was one of only a handful of producers around Valdobbiadene focused on sparkling wine. Giustino’s son Paolo and granddaughter Isabella have since taken the company forward with the same pioneering spirit.

Aroma – “A light sunny day walking in the meadows, with freshly cut grass, white, yellow and blue floral, ripe and delicate white fruits, and light pastry aromas.”

Flavour – “Juicy ripe white fruits, white peach, green grapes, wild floral, white and blue floral on the palate.”

The Source Gin

The Source Gin is forged by the four seasons that blow through the Cardrona Valley, Southern Alps, New Zealand. A natural matrix of locally foraged rosehip, together with traditional juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, lemon and orange zest, vapour-distilled into our Single Malt Spirit. Non-Chill filtered, a mark of distinction for this special drop.

The Source Gin – Tasting Notes – “Oceanic notes of juniper, smooth and aromatic coriander seeds, bark, angelica roots, with zesty lemon and orange zest.”
