As we start the new year with a bump, we are pleased to share with you exciting news that not only strengthens our position in the premium spirits market, but is also a testament to the passion and commitment with which we approach the selection of our products. We are proud to announce that two of our flagship spirits, Casa Don Ramon Mezcal Salmiana Joven and Pierre Vallet XXO cognac, have been recognized by the prestigious Spirits portal as Spirits of January 2024! This not only confirms their exceptional quality and uniqueness, but also proves that our careful work in the selection and distribution of premium spirits is appreciated and bears fruit.

Mezcal Don Ramon Salmiana with 91/100 score

Casa Don Ramon is a story spelled in a bottle, telling of the heritage and traditions of the Mexican land. Made from a unique species of Salmiana agave, Mezcal speaks to us with an intense bouquet of flavors that transport us to a world of roasted nuts, peanut butter and unique notes of tar and kerosene. It’s a drink that combines the wild heart of Mexico with the classic art of distillation, while presenting a wealth of flavors – from smoky fruits to subtle smoked fish.

Following the path of Casa Don Ramon Mezcal Salmiana Joven, one discovers not only its unparalleled flavor characteristics, but also its creation process, which requires patience, knowledge and understanding of traditional production methods. Every drop of this mezcal is the result of carefully selected ingredients and a multi-generational passion for creating best quality spirits. The honorable mention by Spirits is not only an acknowledgment of its class, but also an invitation for you to be swept away on this extraordinary taste journey that combines heritage, innovation and uniqueness.

94/100 – Pierre Vallet XXO cognac

Pierre Vallet XXO cognac, with a rating of 94/100 in the “Spirits of January 2024” list, is the quintessence of French craftsmanship and a multi-generational distillation tradition, whose roots go deep into the heart of the Cognac region. This unique drink, whose youngest ingredient is aged for at least 14 years, is a symbol of elegance and sublime taste. The aromatic bouquet of this cognac shows before you the essence of apricot, peach and pomelo, delicately intermingled with notes of tobacco and almonds. The taste of Pierre Vallet XXO cognac captivates with its multidimensionality – from tart apples and pears, through sour grapes, to subtle hints of bitter tea and licorice.

On the finish of this rich drink, you will discover deep notes of bitter plums and mirabelles, which harmonize with the sweetness of raisins, dates and pralines. Chocolate-covered cherries and Italian dark chocolate-covered nuts add a sophisticated touch to the cognac. The distinction of Pierre Vallet XXO by the Spirits portal as one of the Spirits of January 2024 is not only a confirmation of its uniqueness, but also a tribute to the masterful work of the distillers, who from generation to generation pass on the secrets of producing this extraordinary liquor. It’s an invitation to a world where tradition meets modernity.
