Dedicated to supporting and importing craft, unique and often family-owned spirits.
Originals is focused on spirits only.
We seek local productions that meet the following criteria:
Use irreplaceable local ingredients. Originated out of unique soil and/or climate conditions
Adopt unique methodologies. Perfected over years of experience or from the ingenuity of mastery
Based on premium ingredients and high quality processing standards.
Highly curated collection. To make sure our attention is undivided, we focus only on two to three spirits every one to two years. Because of that, our selection process can be considered a bit lengthy but the results are impeccable. Our evaluation process hinges on:
Sampling, sampling again... and again. We taste the product over time to ensure consistency of taste and properties
Getting to know the people and more. We travel to the area where the spirits are produced. We talk to the people that make them. We explore the surrounding areas and try to capture their essence and connection with the producer.
Sustaining local traditions. Our producers are medium to small companies often doing their part in preserving a portion of the local heritage. As such, we try to support them so that they can better sustain themselves over time.
* We plan on introducing our third addition in the second half of 2019. As mentioned above, we really take our time to make sure we are confident of each selection.
