Dom Pérignon 2009
Twin Spiegelau Glasses Set
This Father’s Day, give dad a 2009 vintage Dom Pérignon presented in a beautifully designed gift set, complete with two crystal Spiegelau Authentis Champagne glasses. Perfect for sharing. After at least eight years, Dom Pérignon achieves its first level of completeness, or Plénitude, that the great house calls harmony.
Does dad drink Dom? Of course, he does.
The quintessential spirit of Islay, Ardbeg deserves its place in any liquor cabinet. From the south of the island of Islay, the distillery produces drams of perfection - showcasing the peaty, sweet, smoky style that has earned them a series of prestigious international awards – including four World Whisky of the Year titles.
Loved by dads the world over.
The Collectivum XXVIII is a unique non-age statement Whisky that draws from 28 different single-malt Scottish distilleries. This bravura blend from Master Blender Keith Law is the fourth in this series of these strictly limited creations. While Collectivum XXVIII is ultra collectible, this in no mere curio. In the bottle is a honey-gold rich and round liquid with layer upon latticework layer of complexity, each well integrated yet still making it their contributions known in this symphonic Whisky.
This is but one of our rare and limited edition Whiskies that dad will love...
The Signature Cabernet Shiraz
An Australian classic from a classic Australian. Yalumba, the country’s oldest family-owned winery, have released the 2014 vintage of The Signature Cabernet Shiraz – a wine described by James Halliday as "…a rock of ages in the storm of Yalumba reds coming onto the market."
Ten bottles will guarantee entry to the "Win an Exceptional Cellar" competition, closing Sunday 19th September at Midnight.
Eden Valley Shiraz
This Confidential is the leading Eden Valley Shiraz in the producer’s range. Sourced from their best vineyards, tended by hand, before being basket pressed and matured in French oak. Smooth, fresh and fruity, it’s drinking very well right now and will continue to do so (and improve) for decades to come.
Who doesn't love a surprise?
Rare Scotch Whisky Tasting at Langton's HQ
On Wednesday evening, a select group of Langton’s Brokers stayed back after hours for a privileged tasting of super rare cask strength Whiskies. We were guided through ten rare drams by Diageo’s Reserve Brand Ambassador Katie Nagar. She gave us a few tips on how to taste cask strength spirits and took us through some rare and very finite bottlings such as the 18-year-old Caol Ila, the Collectivum XXVIII and the utterly sublime 37-year-old Port Ellen. The latter being a once-in-a-lifetime Whisky.
Think dad would like to know more about the whiskies in this tasting? Arrange a call today to find out more about our service, it’s free!
