The oldest rum in Nepal, Khukri has been distilled since 1959 using only the freshest water from Mount Everest. Khukri derives its subtle, complex nature from the balanced flavors of brown spice, dried fruit and butterscotch. It’s matured in oak vats for at least eight months, which creates its distinguished lingering aroma of oak and caramel. With an aroma that is robust and generous, a rum that expands nicely in the palate, reinforcing the olfactory notion of a well-rounded rum. Khukri Rum is named after a dagger-like weapon called a khukri or khukuri, which was used in Nepal by the elite Gurkha armed forces.
Lucid Absinthe Supérieure holds the distinction of being the first authentic, genuine absinthe available in US in over 95 years. Lucid is formulated by world renowned absinthe expert T.A. Breaux, and is distilled in strict accordance to traditional French methods. Lucid is crafted in the historic Combier distillery, founded in 1834 and designed by Gustav Eiffel in the fabled Loire Valley of France. Each bottle of Lucid is carefully prepared by skilled craftsmen, using ancient copper absinthe alembics. Unlike most contemporary imitators, Lucid is distilled entirely from spirits and European herbs, and uses no artificial additives, oils, or dyes. Lucid recalls the rich tradition of absinthe, and is crafted using a full measure of Grande Wormwood ( Artemisia absinthium), green anise, sweet fennel, and other fine European herbs traditionally used in making fine Belle Époque absinthe
