Diageo – From London to the whole world

Approximately 33,000 employees are employed worldwide at Diageo, the market leader in premium spirits, with Smirnoff (vodka), Johnnie Walker (whiskey), J&B (Scotch whiskey), Baileys (liqueur), Captain Morgan (rum), Cuervo (tequila) and Tanqueray (gin), Guinness beer and branded wines. Production takes place all around the world: from Great Britain and Ireland, Italy, Spain and Africa, to the USA, Canada, Latin America, Australia, India and the Caribbean. The global corporation emerged in 1997 from the merger between Guinness and GrandMet. 180 markets around the world are handled from its London headquarters.

A lot of work and lots of attention to detail go into creating the in-depth product descriptions on Diageo’s website. Information and analysis is provided about issues ranging from detailed descriptions of the production down to the most minute ingredients. Finally, they are aware of the size of their company and also of their responsibilities as a supplier of alcoholic products. The name Diageo was also deliberately chosen – it represents their agenda. Put together from ‘dia’ (the Latin word for ‘day’) and ‘geo’ (the Greek word for ‘world’), it means that every day people are celebrating all over the world with products from their company. These products open up possibilities never dreamed of for special days and nights, marking special life events and even making the smaller things in life feel magical.

Participation in the World Spirits Award was magical: there was double gold for Tanqueray No. 10 (Spirit of the Year 2016), gold for Gordon’s London Dry Gin and Tanqueray London Dry Gin, as well as silver for Tanqueray Rangpur.

Lambay Irish Whiskey Company – Welcome to the whiskey world

Two modern entrepreneurs from renowned families got together to create a brand-new product: their vision was an innovative Irish whiskey, inspired by the island of Lambay (Alexander Baring, 7th Baron of Revelstoke’s ancestral seat), rounded off with the technologies and the expertise of Maison Camus. This is the ancestral seat of Cyril Camus, the 5th generation of the French family, famous worldwide for its cognac.

The partnership between Camus Wines & Spirits and the Baring Revelstoke Trust was presented at the TFWA World Exhibition in Cannes in 2017 – a ‘global showcase’ for premium brands. LIWC Managing Director, Jean-David Costerg, is confident of future success, because the partnership of both companies can reach a new generation of whiskey consumers who are looking for exclusive, authentic, handmade products, positioned in the premium price category: Lambay Small Batch Blend, the flagship brand, and Lambay Whiskey Single Malt.

Lambay Small Batch Blend and Single malt are both finished in carefully selected Cognac Oak cask from the Camus cellar, wehereas the Lambay Single Malt is then taken to the island of Lambay – a natural paradise off the coast of Dublin, which has belonged to the Baring family since 1904 – and once there, are left to the fresh sea air in ‘The Sea Cask Room’ to bring maritime notes to the whiskey. The whiskeys are rounded off with the island’s Trinity Well water.

At the World Spirits Award, both products received gold: Lambay Whiskey Small Batch Blend and Lambay Whiskey Single Malt.

Rum Company – Simply the smoothest

Spencer Antle, founder of the Island Company in Florida, had the idea for a rum to fill a niche in the luxury rum market. “I wanted to create a rum that appeals to women and men alike. On my travels through the Caribbean, I noticed that women are not particularly keen on rum. Drunk neat, it is simply too harsh for many, and in a mixed drink, too overpowering.” Following the motto ‘simply the smoothest’, he created a rum that is mild and smooth – and practically disappears in every tropical cocktail. The light (blond) rum is not at all ‘invisible’ in its elegant, slim bottle with the (sea) blue cap – a real eye-catcher!

The Island Company Rum is produced in Trinidad, is distilled five times and matures for three years. With a hint of vanilla and wild honey – without sugar, gluten or carbohydrates – it can be enjoyed at any time. For this small escape from day-to-day life you don’t have to be on the beach or on a sailing boat in the Caribbean.

The newest luxury product from the innovative company is the Island Company Rum Cake, a rich cake with – not surprisingly – a hint of vanilla and honey.

At the World Spirits Award, there was gold for Island Company Rum.

Ron Elba – Rum from the Elbe

At Ron Elba the clue is in the name – a rum from the Elbe. It is produced by hand by two young men from Hamburg: Hannes, a process engineer, has a penchant for concentrating aromas in distillates. That means he was probably made to manufacture rum. Daniel, a businessman and sports lover, found Hannes to be a congenial partner following his conversion to a cognoscente of fine drink. Both men are neither marketing professionals nor large investors; they see themselves as ‘men of conviction, who have made rum with a love of detail’. They worked over two years on producing a rum which stands out immediately from industrial products. With it they attract people who are also not entirely satisfied with what’s on offer.

The choice molasses comes from the island of Mauritius. Cultured yeast is also used. The rum is surprisingly fruity and complex, it needs neither artificial aromas nor sugar, and is therefore described as a ‘dry’ rum. Distillation (still) takes place at a colleague’s distillery in a three-stage rectifier with a special process stage, which makes the distillate especially smooth. From mashing to fermentation tracking to distilling and blending with northern German well water and filling into bottles, both aficionados are always present. The objective is to grow organically, in order to purchase their own distilling equipment as soon as possible and to establish a new rum distillery in Hamburg.
