The latest addition to our range comes from is the cousin to the Clumsy Bear malt vodka from Copenhagen, and its cult status precedes it. Needless to say, we are very excited to add a limited number of Røgbjørnen (Smokey Bear) Vodka bottles to our portfolio.
'Smoke On The Orchard' (thanks for the inspiration Deep Purple…smoke on the water, fire in the sky…) combines the aromatics of Charles Oates Apple Spirit and cunningly balances them with the malted, peaty depths of Rogbjørnen (The Smoky Bear) Peated Vodka which adds that little extra backend warmth alluding to the mouth-watering taste of an apple pie fresh out of the oven.
Charles Oates Apple Spirit is distilled from a specifically brewed cider containing apples sourced organic local orchards, this is a visionary local product that we love drinking cold after meals or mixed as a delightful local alternative to white rum or gin in fresh cocktails. Mojitos and White Ladies never tasted so good.
Housed within the walls of Huon Valley's excellent Willie Smith's Cider Shed, Tim Jones, Jimi Anderson and Ronan Kavanagh are producing Huon Valley Apple Brandy that reminds us of Normandy but with a serious nod towards it's Huon Valley home.
Anzac Day saw us soaking up the designer surroundings with some delicious cocktails at the launch of Hobart's latest design platform - LUC. Creative - which is all about celebrating Tasmania's island heritage.
