The world’s Top-selling Italian liqueur
It’s the world’s favourite Italian liqueur and one of the fastest-growing liqueur brands in Australia*. Now, in a fitting tribute to its success, Disaronno has been nominated as Spirit Brand/Distiller of the Year in Wine Enthusiast’s Wine Star Awards 2022.
This recognition highlights Disaronno’s rapid gains and increasing popularity with leading bartenders and consumers, both on and off-premise. Its velvety smooth taste and unmistakable aroma gave Disaronno the reputation of the world’s favourite Italian liqueur, as proudly stated on its label.
Bright and lively sweet almond aromas, leading to soft, sweet flavours of almond and marzipan without being cloying, with a nutty, toasted back note on the finish.
World-beating gin – from a whisky distillery!
Can artisanal whisky makers also make an award-winning gin? Wild, foraged and distilled, Islay dry gin The Botanist Islay Dry Gin occupies a truly unique place in world gin culture. Crafted in a beaten-up old pot still at the famous Bruichladdich whisky distillery on the fabled Isle of Islay, The Botanist has most recently won Gold in the 2021 USA Spirits Ratings, which single out spirits brands that offer both the trade and the consumer exceptional quality plus great value.
The Botanist is created from 22 hand-foraged local botanicals, delicately augmented by nine berries, barks, seeds and peels during an achingly slow distillation. The result is a rich and mellow taste with notes of apple, mint, juniper, coriander, and honey on the nose.
The Botanist Islay Dry Gin
Satin-smooth, gliding over the palate like no gin you have ever tried before. Sweet, delicate menthol, apple mint, spring woodlands, juniper, coriander with aniseed undertones, lemon and orange peel, a bouquet of summer flowers, honey from thistle, coconut from gorse, wild mint, and summer meadows.
From ‘mad’ idea to the world’s most awarded premium gin
Served yet another tepid, lack-lustre gin-and-tonic, gin-lover, bon-vivant and innovator Martin Miller had an idea. “I’m going to make a gin made from the heart where time and money won’t be an object. We’ll find England’s best distiller, source the finest botanicals and most importantly, we’ll go for the purest water, wherever it is.” “You’re mad”, replied his friends, “Let’s do it”. And Martin Miller’s Gin, the world’s first super-premium gin and most-awarded gin brand, was born.
In the 21 years since then, Martin Miller’s Gin has consistently won more awards in the world’s leading spirit competitions than any other gin. In 2022 alone, Martin Miller’s collected 17 new awards, for a total of 171 Awards since 2004, across their impressive gin stable. The secret to Martin Miller’s success is its unconventional approach. Martin Miller’s distils its botanicals in two separate batches, then blends them to perfection with Icelandic spring water, the purest water in the world. The result is an exceptionally smooth but intensely flavoured gin that makes for an outstanding gin and tonic or gin martini.
Martin Miller’s Gin – Gold 2022 International Wine and Spirits Council (IWSC)
Aromas of citrus joined by spicy hints of coriander and cinnamon give way to juniper and citrus on the plate. Mouth-filling and creamy with a spicy finish moderated by citrus notes.
Martin Miller’s Westbourne Dry Gin – Gold 2022 International Wine and Spirits Council (IWSC)
Aromas of grapefruit peel, marmalade, earthy juniper, and a kick of cardamom. Sweet juniper, orange peel, and peppercorn on the palate, leading to a crisp and refreshing finish with fragrant herbs and cracked black pepper.
Two new whisk(e)y additions to our Portfolio:
Platinum and Gold awarded whiskey from The Busker. In the centuries-old history of whiskey production in Ireland, single-grain and single-malt whiskies have always featured heavily. Now Spirits Platform is proud to offer awarded examples of both.
The Busker Single Malt Whiskey
Double Gold 2021 New York International Spirits Competition
Gold San 2021 Francisco World Spirits Competition
Best Irish Whisky 2020 LA Spirit Awards
Platinum 2020 LA Spirit Awards
The Busker Single Malt whiskey is matured in bourbon and sherry casks to create incredible complexity, starting with fruity notes that lead to an explosion of pine essence and malt biscuit. The palate is very intense, with rich, chocolate notes and concludes with a sweet and creamy finish.
The Busker Single Grain Whiskey
Silver World Whiskies Awards 2021
Silver San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2021
The Busker Single Grain whiskey is a light, pale straw-coloured whiskey with a beautiful, sweet finish. The taste begins by offering sweet caramel, with the palate moving to moving to soft notes of vanilla, oak, caramel, and hay. The finish is a long, dry, and beautifully sweet.
Just-released: the new Octomore 13 Series
No other range of single malt scotch whisky does it quite like Octomore! Super heavily peated, matured for five years and bottled close to cask strength, Octomore defies received whisky wisdom to deliver single malts of great complexity and surprising elegance. The new Octomore 13 series is sure to be awarded high praise by your peat-loving customers, offering an incredible range of flavour notes tied together with complex smoky threads.
Octomore 13.1 Single Malt Scotch whisky is patiently distilled from the 2015 harvest of 100% Scottish Mainland barley, malted to a stratospheric 137.3 PPM and matured in the highest quality American oak casks.
Octomore 13.2 Single Malt Scotch whisky offers an alternative maturation to the structural brilliance delivered by its 13.1 counterparts. In an indulgent point of difference, the five-year-old spirit has spent its entire maturing life in Oloroso butts from Fernando de Castilla, Spain.
Octomore 13.3 Single Malt Scotch whisky demonstrates the phenomenal force of flavour when combining super-heavy peat with grain raised by a friend and farmer James Brown on one singular farm. Expect vanilla and brown sugar, counterbalanced with fresh and round green fruit notes. The smoke is, as ever, gentle and dry, building to a long finish with hints of creosote and sea spray.
