Crabbies - Green Ginger Wine

England - John Crabbie's distinctive elephant trademark stems from the Scots merchant adventurers who pioneered trade with countries from the Orient, from which they still buy the herbs, spices, fruit and ginger (a reputed aphrodisiac and cure for 'mal de mer') for Crabbie's original Scottish Green Ginger. It was during the time of the Raj that another Scot, a Colonel MacDonald, first created the famous 'Whisky MacDonald' or 'Whisky Mac' - Equal measure of Crabbie's and Scotch whisky), a truly warming experience.

Buckfast - Tonic Wine

England - The recipe for the Tonic wine is attributed to the original French monks who settled at Buckfast Abbey in the 1880's. Base wines from Spain, known as mistellas, were imported and to these were added the tonic ingredients according to the old recipe. By the 1920's 1400 bottles were sold annually, 500 from Buckfast and the remainder by post. In 1927 a London wine merchant was visiting the Abbey, and in conversation with the Abbot, Anscar Vonnier, it was decided that the monks would continue to make the Tonic wine with the distribution and sale to be carried out by a separate marketing company. In order to broaden its appeal the Tonic was changed slightly from a rather severe patent medicine to a smoother, more mature medicated wine. Having taken on the marketing of Buckfast the distributing company adopted a reserved promotional approach resulting in the widespread appreciation of the product nationally and internationally. In modern times it continues to be made by the monks of Buckfast Abbey along the same lines and according to the same basic recipe as used in the very early days. The main difficulty lies in the successful addition of inert substances to a base wine - a living and natural entity. The selection of the base wine is thus of prime importance. Today the base mistellas come from France providing the ideal medium for the skill and expertise of the monks to produce a finished product round and mature to the most discerning of tastes.

Mead & Tonic Wine

Lindisfarne - Mead

England - Lindisfarne Mead is a unique alcoholic fortified wine manufactured here on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. The honey which is used in the production of Lindisfarne Mead is drawn from the four corners of the world and here, on the island, it is vatted with fermented grape juice, honey, herbs, and the pure natural water of an artesian well and fortified with fine spirits to produce this unique drink. Lindisfarne Mead is produced exclusively on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, situated off the Northumbrian Coast. This island is the Cradle of Christianity in England, for in the year 634 A.D., Oswald, King of Northumberland, brought St. Aidan from the island of Iona to establish a monastery here. The motifs illuminating our labels are drawn from Bishop Eadfrith's magnificient Lindisfarne Gospels written circa 700 AD., which, with the Books of Durrow and Kells, remain a living testimony to the devotion and love of beauty and culture which existed in those distant times.
