Whilst we love our whisky, we also have a passion for spirits of all shapes and sizes from around the world. As such, we have a wide variety of everything, from Rum, Vodka and Gin, Tequila, brandies including Armagnac, Cognac and Calvados, and many other spirits from across the globe. We have absinthes, grappa, mezcal, sotol, pisco, shochu and eaux de vie and schnapps, all here for your perusal.
We have created a monster, summoned from the very bowels of hell, formed in a vile carboy filled with a horrid mound of Naga Jolokia chillies (the world’s hottest chillies), steeped in grain vodka. We've packaged it in a handsome, heavy glass bottle with industrial-grade sealing wire and lead security seal (with a skull and crossbones embossed on it). To get to this bottle, you'll literally have to open it with wire cutters, but we strongly recommend you don't. In fact, this unspeakable 250,000 Scovilles vodka is a chilli vodka so horrendous we suggest you don’t even purchase it. Please just shut down your computer and have a nice cup of tea instead. Try to forget what you saw.

A sure-fire hit from Professor Cornelius Ampleforth, Rumbullion! is a cockle-warming spiced concoction, based on the kind of rich, full-bodied rums the seafaring fraternity would have enjoyed centuries ago.At the core of this fabulous winter warmer lies a blend of the very finest high proof Caribbean rum, to which was added creamy Madagascan vanilla and a generous helping of zesty orange rind. A secret recipe was followed, and the Professor finished his hearty tipple with a handful of cinnamon and cloves and just a hint of cardamom. Rumbullion! proudly flaunts its maritime inspiration with a label that bears a hand-drawn illustration of a Navy grog tub, emblazoned with the words: “The Queen, God Bless Her”, and just like all of the fine spirits in Professor Cornelius Ampleforth’s arsenal, each bottle is wrapped in crinkled brown paper, wound with twine and sealed with black wax.In the Professor’s own words: “’tis a most heart-warming tipple that will surely see off the Winter blues. Whilst this is rum, it’s certainly not a rum thing by any means and I recommend you enjoy it neat, or with ice and squeeze of fresh lime.”
One of Germany's most well known brands of brandy, Asbach has been enjoyed since 1892. This is a 1980s bottle of their Uralt blend, which is still made and enjoyed for its delicate sweetness even today.
Professor Cornelius Ampleforth took his famous Rumbullion! and bottled it at Navy Strength to create a much much bigger drink. This is a warming concoction that would no doubt give a sailor vim and vigour on a stormy night!
Rumbullion! Navy Strength is made using a secret recipe with a Caribbean rum at its spicy core. Expect big spicy flavours of cardamom, clove and vanilla in this legendary spiced rum.
Navy Strength is 57%abv, the reason for this, allegedly, was that gunpowder would still explode if alcohol at this strength was accidentally spilt on it. However the Professor conducted an experiment to see if it really would still explode, the results were recorded in this video...
"The horror! The horror!" What have we done… I'll tell you what we've done, we've created a monster. We filled a carboy with vodka, and into it we poured so many Naga Jolokia chillies that there was nothing but darkness in that carboy, nothing but darkness. We left the chillies to infuse and impart their flavour, colour and deathly fire into the vodka, and we've bottled the result. We are sorry. We are truly sorry.Any decent chilli product comes with warnings, here are ours:By purchasing this bottle, you agree that: 1) I have been warned and fully understand that this product contains extreme heat and should be used and handled responsibly.2) I use this product entirely at my own risk and I understand the potential danger if used or handled irresponsibly.

A supremely delicious absinthe from the legendary Professor Cornelius Ampleforth. He crafts this fine spirit by macerating a selection of superb botanicals in English wheat spirit. These botanicals include traditional fare such as Artemisia Absinthium (Grand Wormwood, from which this spirit gets its name), Aniseed, Fennel and Liquorice, and a select blend of contemporary ingredients including Coriander Seed, Fresh Lemon Peel, and Bitter Orange Peel. After the ingredients have been allowed to macerate, the Professor cold-distils the spirit in a vacuum still.This extraordinary vacuum still technique allows the liquid in the Professor’s most marvellous contraption to boil at no more than room temperature, retaining all the freshness and extraordinary vibrancy of the botanicals used in its preparation.

This is one of the most brilliant things ever to be, also one of the very finest celebrity-endorsed products we've ever seen. Created for the legendary Dan Aykroyd, Crystal Head Vodka is kosher-certified, and made using Newfoundland water which is filtered through 500 million year old crystals called Herkimer diamonds. The bottle is made in Italy by Bruni Glass and it's also a crystal skull, which is, of course, the best thing (ignoring the negative connotations with the travesty that was Indiana Jones 4...).
For those of you aren’t familiar with his work, Ron Jeremy is a long-standing leading man in some of the more #ahem# ‘artistic’ films in the gentleman’s section of your local video store. Ron successfully made the crossover to mainstream films thanks to his accessible ‘chap next door’ image, and numerous TV appearances. This rum is the latest in a successful line of celebrity-affiliated spirits including most notably Glen Rossie Whisky (named for the lead guitarist from Status Quo).
The rum itself is a 7 year old dark rum from Panama, hand-crafted by Master Distiller Don Pancho Fernandez. We’ve tried this rum, and have to say that we’re really impressed.
To add to the collectors' value, the initial batch of Ron de Jeremy is a limited release, and every bottle is individually numbered!
Kept in a bottle that looks like a prototype of the Gherkin, this Kauffman Soft Private Collection has been distilled 14 times before being filtered twice, once through birch coal and then again through quartz. This version is named soft because of its mellow texture.
