18.21 Havana & Hide Bitters
Our Barrel Aged Havana&Hide Bitters are barrel aged in Charred Oak for a rich and earthy flavor. They evoke the flavors of leather and cigar leaf. With notes of Sandalwood, Chicory and Clove, these are our heaviest bitters and pair perfectly with Whiskey, Scotch and Bourbon. Scroll down for recipes.
Dardiman's Chocolate Covered Dried Oranges
Crisping began around our own kitchen table. With the unmatched quality and flavor of California citrus readily available in our backyard, we were inspired to create a specialty item with one purpose in mind – to turn Californian fruits into crunchy, nutritious and delightful slices.
California’s seasonal market drives our trade. With the exception of Hawaiian pineapple, we personally select each batch of fresh fruit from local growers. We then thinly slice, dry and hand pack only the finest selection of crisps.
Our process of dehydration is quite different from those of freeze-drying and sun-drying, as we are able to retain the fruit’s vitamins, earthly colors and natural flavors without the use of any added sugars or preservatives.
Several seasons of fine-tuning and barrels of fruit later, Dardimans California has perfected the craft of fine snacking.
Starward Two-Fold Whisky
Beginning / An Australian double-grain whisky. For depth, we use malted barley, just like our Nova. For an aromatic, dry flavour, we use Australian wheat.
Middle / Lightly charred or steamed barrels. Sourced from Australian wineries that make great shiraz, cabernets and pinot noirs. Often filled fresh when the barrel is still wet with wine. We mature each whisky separately in Melbourne’s wildly varied climate, then deftly combine.
End / Smooth as silk. Spiced vanilla, tropical fruits and cereal characters rounded with red apples and berries.
Future / Easy-drinking when neat or on ice. Try a Two-Fold and tonic and you might be tempted to bin the gin.
