The 2004 Montelìg is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot, and 25% Carmenere. It is a fatter, sweeter wine than the 2003 with additional blueberry notes and is nicely balanced for its size. It deserves 5-7 years of cellaring and should provide pleasure through 2030.
OLD GROVE GIN & TONIC
Even when updated, some cocktails are timeless. We’ve blended our clean and fragrant Old Grove Gin with our house-made grapefruit cucumber tonic to re-create the perfect match. A modern spin on an old classic, the bright citrusy flavors will keep you refreshed day or night.
SPICY BLOODY MARY
Like the venomous namesake fish this Fugu Bloody Mary packs a sting. We’ve combined our signature Fugu Vodka with our award-winning Bloody Mary mix, featuring ripe tomatoes, exotic spices and a heavy dose of pepper, to make a spicy cocktail that is dangerously drinkable.
THREE SHEETS RUM & COLA
This cocktail instantly transports you to the tropics. Our smooth Three Sheets White Rum crafted from pure cane sugar blends with earthy cardamom in our house-made cola to create a uniquely exotic yet inviting flavor. The mix of sweet and spice will have you feeling the waves wherever you may be.
FUGU VODKA MULE
Natural ginger, a splash of bitters and hint of lime, makes for an unforgettable Moscow Mule. We mix in our exceptionally smooth award-winning Fugu Vodka and the party really gets started. Spicy, sweet, bitter, and tart. Enjoy it straight from our copper colored can.
FUGU CUCUMBER VODKA SODA
Cool, fresh, and effervescent, our Cucumber Vodka Soda is a new take on the classic cocktail. We start with our exceptionally smooth award-winning Fugu Vodka. Then add just a hint of cucumber to our unique house-made soda. It’s a refreshing cocktail that will take you places.

Colección de autor
Gin Mare also elicits the generational evolution of this category via a family with great weight in this work.
Gin Mare is born from a pure Mediterranean environment with our distillery located in an ancient fishing village between the Costa Brava and the Costa Dorada.
CRAFTS IN PRODUCTION
Gin Mare is created using Mediterranean crafts and time, in order to obtain an exceptional gin: from a premium barley base, through delicate maceration and distillation which is independent for each botanical (some, like the citrus carry a harmonization process more than one year) to the authentic blending which expresses all the characteristics of each botanical in the final product.
NAMING GIN MARE
The word “Mare” weighs heavily throughout Mediterranean culture, immediately leading us to “Mar” (“sea”) which is the exact translation in Italian. But further research discovers that its meaning in other languages leads to a more familiar meaning, specifically maternal. At the same time, we must remember a universal concept that would include “Mare Nostrum”, the sea of all the communities living under this magical Mediterranean influence which unites the love of gastronomy, the pleasant climate, a way of life with different values where time runs differently than the rest of the world.
The color is light shiny copper. Beautiful and seductive floral aromas with hints of melon and lychee fill the glass. The mouth-feel is lush and vibrant with bright ripe fruit and a lively acidity. The lush flavors and perfect balance makes this Rosé unique, elegant and satisfying. The finish is long and full with more fruit, fine hints of tannins and beautiful minerality.
