The taste of the final product represents a high respect of fine wine and tea for a gentlemen’s lifestyle.
The new bottle design looks chic and sophisticated in a clear golden amber with burnished copper tone to level up the aged, fine and luxury state of liqueur. The new bottle is updated with a more contemporary look, through a slightly thicker base and crystalline glass. The label is now decorated with platinum lettering, but maintained a note of 100 in numerals and the brand’s crest to emphasise the rich heritage and the authenticity of the brand.
