A limited edition rum from Chairman's Reserve, blended from casks that had been forgotten about after the fire that seriously damaged the distillery in 2007.

Chilgrove Bluewater Edition draws its inspiration from the rich history that exists between England and Australia, both in terms of the early explorers & settlers and also the subsequent maritime trade-routes. The botanicals which have been chosen all had their part to play in this story. Bottled at a super-premium 46% abv, Chilgrove Bluewater Edition is a London Dry Gin crafted using a total of fourteen botanicals including indigenous Australian and English botanicals. These are distilled with a 100% grape-alcohol base and natural mineral water sourced from the South Downs which surround the hamlet of Chilgrove in West Sussex.
During its history, Cocchi has produced some variants to its Aperitivo Americano. The most recent is Cocchi Rosa produced with a base of red wines of Piedmont to which herbs and spices extracts are added, in particular gentian, cinchona, citrus zests and rose petals.
Cocchi Americano is an aromatised wine created in 1891 by Giulio Cocchi and since then produced without interruption according to the original recipe. The name “Americano” is both due to the alcohol made bitter (“amaricato”) by the addition of herbs and spices and to the American habit of drinking vermouth with ice and soda. Produced according to Giulio Cocchi original recipe, Cocchi Americano is recognized in Asti as the aperitif par excellence – a real piece of history of their town. On its label the original futurist rooster designed in the 30’s and representing his aperitif function (“it awakes the appetite”) as well as one of the symbols of the town of Asti.

The Spice Tree’s trademark spice character is retained but set within a richer, more elegant frame with a new depth of flavour and complexity
