Pierre Lecat Cognac

This small family owned Vineyard in Saint Fraigne has originally been supplying the larger cognac producers in the region with high quality wines since the mid 1970’s. The farm grows some 20 hectares of Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Folle Blanche grapes for their Eau de Vie. Today the largest part of their production is used for their own brand of Cognac…Pierre Lecat, named after the local watchmaker that lived in the village in the past. The wines are distilled on site in their own 40 year old Charentais Alambic and the distillate is than filled into french oak casks for up to 20 years and more. The Lecat Cognacs are bottled from 3 years up to 23 years as VS Instinct, VSOP experience and XO memoire after the various casks are blended to create the distinct character.

New rums!

New releases of two new Rum bottlings under the “Kintra Rum Collection” label!

2nd Confidential Cask, 11y, 55,6% vol. “trust me, Worth a walk in the Park” from Jamaica

The second time we’ve bottled a cask from this specific distillery that we cannot name. The nose is exceptional on this one… Reminds us of an older Single Malt Whisky… The taste however is typical of the style of this distillery. There’s mint and fresh cut grass. And a huge wave of Jamaican funk in the back of your throat. We’ve had a sample bottle at a few festivals in the last weeks and Rum and Whisky lovers united over this one.

Uitvlugt 21y, 49,1% vol. Distilled on the wooden Port Mourant stills in Guyana

It has a fruity fresh nose with notes of camphor, a little sweetness, delicate wood influence and a some pencil shavings. On the palate it is subtle but not shy at all….the pencil shavings are there again, very delicate sweetness, spices in abundance, cinnamon, cloves and a lovely long aftertaste. You can order these new Kintra Rum Collection bottlings at your local liquor store now…!

Mezcal Nucano

Mezcal Nucano is a 100% Oaxacan brand that looks to bring a part of Oaxacan culture and tradition to the rest of the world through mezcal. Kintra Spirits is the importer for Nucano Mezcal in the Netherlands. High quality, craft distilling at its best.

The Nucano brand is in the hands of 5th generation Mezcal producing family and only recently has the brand been available overseas. Their “standard” Espadin Joven Mezcal has won a gold medal at the the San Fransisco Spirits Competition and perfectly explains what Mezcal is… earthy, vegetal and smokey.

An Islay-whisky lover will like this drink as well. The distillates form the wild Agaves (compared to the cultivated Espadin Agaves) such as Tobalá, Cuishe, Arroqueno and Tepextate are the pinnacle of what the Mezcal world has to offer and will appeal to the high end lover of fine drinks.
