The Exceptional by Sutcliffe & Son

NEW PRODUCER

Don Sutcliffe, Managing Director of Craft Distillers and Willie Philips, former Managing Director of Macallan, have said they have always wanted to work together on a project together. A meeting of minds and passion for a product in which they have both spent their lives specialising in and a product that has been the base of their long standing friendship. Primarily they are Whisky lovers and that is what makes this project so special.

Don and Willie blend aged whiskies from selected barrels from different distilleries, which have been picked according to their individualistic nature, purity of flavour and unique characteristics. What makes them unique is that rather than sticking to prearranged styles and seeking consistency year to year, The Exceptional Whisky Company will offer unique whiskies upon each release, all of which will be determined by their own qualitative and stylistic distinction.

Sabatini

NEW PRODUCER

The Sabatini family estate is located in the stunning province of Arezzo, Tuscany. Father Enrico Sabatini, his two sons, Niccolò and Ugo and cousin Filippo, were inspired by their summers at the family estate, where sun down would be marked by an aperitivo G&T and a stroll through the villas picturesque gardens. And so, they decided to create a Gin which complied with the same rules and method of the ever popular London Dry Gin, yet which had aromas and flavours that would transport them back to Tuscany! Thus wherever the world would take them, no matter how far, they would always be connected. This unique product is made using botanicals picked from the estates gardens, chosen because they represent the quintessential flavours of Tuscany; Tuscan Juniper, Coriander, Sage, Wild Fennel, Olive leaves, Lemon Verbena, Orris, Thyme and Lavender.

Derbusco Cives

NEW PRODUCER

Derbusco Cives is a young cellar, which was set up by 5 friends who wanted to produce Franciacorta wines, with a focus on highlighting the unique terroir of Erbusco. The name Derbusco Cives simply means “Citizens of Erbusco”. They own 12 hectares of vineyard land in this area, which they use exclusively for production of sparkling wine.

We have been looking for a Franciacorta producer for some time now, however we struggled to find one that we felt really excited us and showed the level of individuality we look for in our products and producers. Until now. The wines of Derbusco Cives are fantastic in terms of quality and distinction and we are delighted to be representing them in the UK.

Ward Valley Estate

NEW PRODUCER

The Ward Valley Estate is an exciting young winery set up in 2008 by native New Zealander Freddy Davidson. Located in the south of Marlborough, the Ward is much cooler than the northern part of the region. With its water retentive, clay based soils, long dry summers and cooling climate, Freddy chose the Ward Valley because it provides a perfect microclimate for the production of quality Pinot Noir. Freddy works alongside specialist consultant winemaker David Clouston and expert viticulturist John Hickman to develop the Ward Valley and to showcase its potential as a competitive Pinot Noir producing area, with the ability to produce benchmark wines within the Marlborough region!

Tenuta di Tavignano

New Producer

A family estate acquired in the seventies by Stefano Aymerich and wife Beatrice Lucangeli. Travignano consists of 30 hectares of vineyards located in a small town called Cingoli, in the heart of the Marche region. Cingoli has a perfect Verdicchio growing climate with good sun exposure from the South-East and ventilation from the cooling Northerly winds. Verdicchio is their focus and the majority of their production but they also grow small portions of Montepulciano and Sangiovese which are used in the production of their Rosso Piceno.

The estate has now been passed down to niece Ondine de la Feld, who like her Uncle and Aunt continues with the passion to produce quality Verdicchio in this region. Although for many years Stefano and Beatrice ran the estate with a conscious effort to minimise their environmental impact by using environmentally friendly vineyard techniques and management, one of Ondine’s first decisions when she took charge was to farm all their vineyards Organically. Though they are not certified at current, in 2015 they started the conversion process to Organic agriculture and hope to achieve official certification in the near future.

The resulting whiskies have increased depth, complexity and flavour, incomparable to any other. Samaroli also works with premium quality single cask and blended Rums from South America.

Samaroli today is under the operation of Antonio Bleeve who had been collaborating with the company for many years before he took charge as master blender and CEO.

Aged spirits un comparable to anything else and sought after by whisky enthusiasts around the world.
