LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/24/13 -- Fine spirit enthusiasts who spend time hunting for those rare finds to impress guests are richly rewarded thanks to recently launched website Alexander & James. Those with a true passion for spirits enjoy the care and attention to unearth those hidden gems. The new online store dedicated to premium spirits has focused its product range towards catering for those looking for that rare find.

A vodka from a different grape

European vodka, the kind most people are familiar with, has traditionally been made by distilling fermented grains or potatoes. Some drinkers are actually prejudiced towards vodka because of this fact, preferring to avoid the carbs. The French vodka brand Ciroc, has proved that you can produce top quality vodka from grapes. Ciroc uses unconventional techniques normally reserved for winemaking and then distills the vodka five times to produce an exceptionally smooth taste with flavours of lemon and grape.

For those wanting to try something on the exotic side, Alexander & James offers Ciroc Coconut. The tropical flavoured vodka has notes of coconut and pineapple with a hint of vanilla on the nose. The classic Ciroc in a 70 cl bottle retails for GBP 33.59 while the Ciroc Coconut of the same size retails for GBP 33.57.

The Johnnie Walker club

An iconic whisky such as Johnnie Walker attracts a strong legion of fans. The legendary whisky is one of the most widely distributed blended whiskies in the world, and in recent years, that fan base has extended eastwards to countries such as China. A Johnnie Walker House recently opened in Beijing, inviting visitors to learn about the whisky in its museum, spend time at the bar, join the members club, and, of course, shop.

True fans can create a similar experience at home with branded accessories from Alexander & James. Products include: Johnnie Walker Gold Glasses and Platinum Tumblers; a Johnnie Walker Backgammon Set; a Johnnie Walker Bill Amberg Leather Weekender Bag and Leather Suit Carrier; and a complete Johnnie Walker VIP Whisky Kit.

The upper end of whisky

Whisky is the bold choice for the discerning spirits drinker. From younger generations looking for new adventures to drinks connoisseurs, many new trends are being talked about in whisky circles including Japanese and Indian whisky, twice burnt barrels and the rise of women whisky drinkers. Alexander & James offers a wide range of whisky options as well as collection sets ideal for gift giving. For added indulgence, Alexander & James offers the Glenury Royal 40 year old single malt whisky - only 1,500 bottles of this rare whisky are on release worldwide. A 70 cl bottle retails for GBP 499.59.
