Old Bakery - Original Gin
There is nothing particularly extraordinary about Old Bakery Gin to nose, but then, that’s the whole point. The gin is based upon a recipe created by people who lived so long ago that a taste of one of the star-botanical gins of today would cause some sort of revolution. No, this is a gin that smells like nothing but good old fashioned gin. Juniper is present, something rooty too, and a hint of something bright. An educated guess – but absolutely a guess – the four would be juniper, coriander seed, liquorice root and grapefruit peel.
Specifics aside, the taste is a little more nuanced, with that twang of zesty grapefruit meets caramelised blood orange sensation at the fore, joined by a weighty root that fills the cheeks with a soft, viscous sensation, easing the liquid down the throat with not a hint of burn in site. (This in itself is pretty incredible, actually, given that this is a 41.7% ABV spirit being sipped at room temperature. An incredible amount of skill has been deployed to get Old Bakery Gin as smooth as it is, which is remarkable given that Ron was new to distilling prior to this venture). The juniper oscillates wildly, flitting between an earthy, dusty pine and a more berry-like clarity, but never really overwhelming proceedings. It’s great, solid stuff, and something Gin geeks should strive to get hold of.
Once Upon A Time, There Was A Young Girl, The Youngest Daughter Of The Marquis De Wignacourt.
A natural cider that is made of 100% pure fruit juice; Wignac is the renaissance of a legacy that long lay lost and unremembered. The brand’s roots stem from the ‘Belle Époque’ era in the region of the pre-Ardennes ridges (France), where the family Marquis de Wignacourt held and cultivated rich apple orchards; the fruit of which produced a luxuriant cider.
Two World Wars and a century later, all that was left of the Wignacourt family was their documented history. Today, the descendants of the little marquis; the last-born Wignacourt, are on a mission to revive the orchards and restore the way of life in the region to what it was before. How do they plan on achieving this goal? The answer is cider.
The reinvented Wignac Cider is crisp and vibrant; offered in a range of flavours that keep on expanding. Above all, they are extremely healthy thanks to the natural fruit content. Come. Be a part of the revival, as the future of cider takes a refreshing turn in revisiting the past…

Woodland replaced gardens of fruit trees. The Ardennes region is today the one that suffers most from the rural exodus in France.
The descendants of the little Marquise created Wignac to revive the orchards and bring back the cider tradition in the region.
