Having been in the Massonie family for three generations, Perron is now the responsibility of Bertrand Massonie, whose drive, passion, technical skill and respect for the property's exceptional terroir have contributed massively to its recent renaissance. One of the top wines in the appellation and a rising star of the Right Bank.
Elegant, intense hue of deep garnet, the powerful and complex bouquet offering up an array of aromas from red-berried fruit, damp earth and a touch of mocha to toasty notes - the fruit of excellent wine craftsmanship. The palate is rich, balanced and has a texture of the finest class, wrapped in extract as creamy as it is silky and perfectly smooth. This is without a doubt one of the best wines of the 2012 vintage in this prestigious appellation. AGEING Cellaring potential: 5 - 10 years. Blend 80% Merlot - 10% Cabernet Sauvignon - 10% Cabernet Franc
Dead Man’s Fingers Spiced Rum was released in 2015 by the owners of The Rum & Crab Shack, a delightful rum and seafood restaurant in picturesque St. Ives, Cornwall. The business proved so successful that they have also recently opened another Rum & Crab Shack in Exeter. To our knowledge, it's the first spiced rum to be blended and bottled in Cornwall.
Dead Man’s Fingers is a blend of Caribbean rums from Barbados and Trinidad that warms he cockles and stirs the soul; in other words, it is very tasty indeed! We get saffron cake, Pedro Ximinez ice cream, caramel and vanilla with cinnamon, nutmeg and orange notes. Delicious!
This is a very easy drinking spiced rum that can be enjoyed neat, over ice, or mixed with cola; once opened, a bottle of Dead Man’s Fingers tends to disappear rather quickly. As you can see from the reviews, this is very highly rated by people who have tried it and is one of our best selling rums of all time.
The rum takes inspiration from Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, a premium rum from Venezuela. It was after one boozy night drinking this that Rum & Crab Shack owners Neythan Hayes and Chris McGuire decided to open the Rum & Crab Shack!

The first gin to be distilled in Cornwall for over 100 years, Tarquin’s Dry Gin is a contemporary take on the classic London Dry. 12 botanicals are used in its production, with Devon violets and fresh citrus zest dominating this light, floral, easy drinking gin.
Southwestern Distillery use juniper from Kosovo as it’s fresh and quite floral. Lemon sherbert coriander seeds are sourced from Bulgaria rather than the spicier Moroccan variety. The fresh zest of orange, lemons and grapefruits are also used along with angelica root, orris root, green cardamom, almonds, cinnamon, liquorice root. The final botanical in this wonderful gin is Devon violets, sourced from Tarquin’s own garden!
South Western Distillery is headed up by Tarquin who is so proud of his creation he puts his name on every bottle. He believes in doing things the old-fashioned way, even if it takes longer. Only the best and most pure spirit (the heart) makes it into Tarquin's Gin, which is diluted to bottling strength at 42% with Cornish spring water. Tarquin's Dry Gin is made in small batches of just 300 bottles at a time before being hand selected, bottled, labelled and signed by Tarquin himself. This attention to detail goes some way to explaining why this is our best selling Cornish gin.
Ron Miel Cayo Grande Honey Rum is a sweet, soft, luscious rum product from Spain. It's a staple of returning holiday makers who often sample it on one of the Canary Islands and want to re-live the experience at home.
We find it best to enjoy it poured neat over ice but can also be drank with cola or poured over ice cream! A truly versatile and indulgent honey rum.
