Nonsuch Shrub Aperitif joins the Cask portfolio
We are excited to be working on nonalcoholic Nonsuch Shrub aperitif. The all natural blend of fruits, herbs and apple cider vinegar comes in two flavours, Blood Orange & Bitter Lemon and Bittersweet a Apple & Cardamom. They are delicious both in and out of cocktails!
Signal Hill Whisky added to the Cask Portfolio
Canadian Whisky Signal Hill is the latest addition to join the Cask Liquid Marketing portfolio. Signal Hill uses two types of grains in the whisky, malted barley and corn. This results in a smooth whisky, which appears sweeter on the palate than other Canadian whiskies even though no sugar is added.
Mars Kasei Japanese Whisky
Mars Kasei is the latest release from the Mars distillery. Translating to ‘Mars’ in Japanese, the whisky is derived from blended barrels and is a whisky of malt and grain imbued with softness and roundness. It’s floral characters and subtle smoke flavour means it works perfectly alone and in highballs.
