Islay malts are unlike any other malt whiskies – they are robust, smoky and peaty, with hints of the sea and spicy sweetness – combining the torrents and tranquility of this magical island.

Monte Xanic wines have been witness to history in Mexico - their Chardonnay was the wine used to toast the signing of NAFTA in 1992, and Gran Ricardo was served at a dinner in Mexico to honor Pope John Paul II. With meticulous winemaking practices and an attitude of continuous improvement, the Monte Xanic wines are some of the most awarded and well known in the Valle. This Cabernet Sauvignon has a balance of rustic structure and fruit that makes it great with food. Blackberry and cassis mingle with sweet tobacco and leafy earthiness.
