A delish drink that gives bees a boost AND is genuinely sustainable? Say hello to Avallen Calvados! The brand’s founders are on a mission to make the world better: as part of the 1% for the Planet movement, they make donations to organisations that protect bees and help them thrive, partly through planting more than 10,000 wild flowers in the next three years.
The production story is a tasty one, too: Avallen is made without sugar, caramel or boisé (a wood extract sometimes used to add colour to Calvados) – literally just good old apples and water – before it’s aged in French oak barrels for at least two years. In keeping with the general apple theme, the bottle’s label has even been printed on recycled apple pulp paper!
Flor de Cana 7 Gran Reserva is a premium full-bodied rum with no added sugar. This mahogany rum has aromas of toasted coconuts, vanilla and figs, honey and dark chocolate taste with a long and smooth finish. Best enjoyed with sparkling water or sodas.
Flor de Caña rums are naturally aged in small white oak bourbon barrels sealed with plantain leaves, creating a unique rum with tropical notes. The fertility of its soil, the volcanic climate to which the barrels are exposed during the aging process and the enriched volcanic water contribute in creating a singularly smooth and rum with rich flavor.
To produce their Unico Caffé, Applewood distillery sources the freshly roasted coffee beans from Johnny Scott at Mighty Mighty Coffee in the Adelaide Hills. They are cold infused for 24 hours then blended with a grape spirit to create a perfectly smooth coffee liqueur.
Perfect in your next espresso martini or simply on the rocks.
