Ciao! Bonjour! Hello! Yellow! Gold!

As you now already know, we are always in search for a perfect dram. It's like the gold rush, we are running from place to place, we are digging, sniffing, sipping, licking… only this time the gold is in liquid form. 

A long journey awaits us this month. We'll start in Italy, move to Scotland and finish it in Guyana. We know some excellent drams are waiting for us, but only Tasting Is Believing. Whoohoo! And that’s exciting! 

When we started putting together this edition, the working title of the box was The Flavour Rollercoaster. The idea behind it was to show you the range of flavours you can experience sipping brown spirits. But then, while selecting the drinks, another layer revealed itself – small but interesting stories of the people behind the brands and products. 

So, what do we cover in this Tasting Box? One grape based spirits, one grain based spirit and one made from molasses – all top of the range

This will be a really nice but extravagant trip and the route we've chosen is also the most appropriate 'flavour-wise’.

1) Grappa is grape-based pomace brandy of Italian origin. Fermentation and distillation must occur on the pomace (“the leftovers” of winemaking), no added water is allowed.

2) Rum is made by distilling fermented sugar and water. Sugar comes from the sugar cane and is fermented from molasses, cane juice, or cane syrup. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak barrels.

3) Single malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most single malts are matured longer).

Rum (usually) comes from molasses; the sweet and syrupy residue left behind after sugar crystals are extracted from sugar cane juice. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, which can contribute to the final flavour.

I didn't care for the welcome box as I'm not a bourbon fan.
