Sula launches India’s first Grape Spirit based Whisky, ECLIPSE, in Delhi market



Sula Vineyards, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Artisan Spirits, has launched India’s first Premium blended whisky with Grape Spirit base, ECLIPSE, in the Delhi market.  The company announced their aggressive diversification into the premium liquor category at a special event for the trade in the National Capital this week.

After adding grape-based Brandy,’ Janus’, and ‘J’, the launch of Eclipse, a premium whisky with Grape  spirit base, is considered a strategic move by the company towards product diversification.  Eclipse has distribution rights in Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Puducherry, and Telangana currently.  

Speaking to Hospitality Biz at the launch event, Nick Pringle, COO, Sula Vineyards said that the company has yet again proved its spirit of innovation by introducing a “pioneering product”.  “It’s a tough market and in a tough market it is important to keep innovating and give consumers something new. Eclipse is the first Grape spirit based whisky to come into the market,” he said.



Talking about the product, Pringle said that while its grape spirit base makes it unique, it is blended with quality malt matured in French oak. “That gives the product the quality finish and premium presentation,” he added.  He said that Eclipse has received good feedbacks from connoisseurs at blind tasting sessions.

When asked about distribution, Pringle said that they will be rolling it out “carefully and strategically” pan India in the coming months. “We have got distribution rights in few places. Idea is to go very carefully,” he said.

Eclipse comes in an elegant bottle with a tamper proof ‘Fabrizio cap’ that ensures excellent and smooth flow of the liquid from the bottle.

Gueridon Service - Trolley Service


Gueridon Service Gueridon Service is a term used in the restaurant business to refer to "trolley service." Food is cooked, finished or presented to the guest at a table, from a moveable trolley. Dishes typically served like this include Crepes Suzette, Caesar Salad, Cherries Jubilee, Banana Flambé and Steak Tartar. There are several reasons for Gueridon Service: ensures exact serving temperature and stage for any dishes sensitive to this; turns food into entertainment; creates an atmosphere of sophistication; stimulate demands in other guests for that level of attention. The food being served is usually partially or mostly prepared in the kitchen -- certainly any prep work such as chopping onions, actually cooking crêpes, etc, is done there. The waiter then does the final assembly or cooking on the trolley at the side of the restaurant customer's table. This might involve flambéing an item, or carving it, or tossing a salad. The trolley is equipped with a burner for cooking, that can be powered by gas, electricity or spirits. Some trolleys will have a cold drawer as well. All will have a chopping board and cutlery drawer, and be equipped with the necessary utensils for what the restaurant offers from the trolley. There will also be on the trolley a selection of basic condiments such as mustards, Worcestershire sauce, oil, vinegar, etc. Gueridon Service is less popular now. For it to be practical, restaurant dining rooms have to be less crowded with tables than many are now, to allow enough space between tables for the trolley to move and be positioned. Additionally, dining room staff need to be specially trained in how to finish the dishes being offered. It may also be that restaurant customers got bored with the same typical dishes that were offered, as those dishes lost their novelty over time.

What does a $22,000 cognac actually taste like?


Want to feel the warm, gently percolating inner glow of a fireside cognac this Christmas? If a bottle of Remy Martin VSOP for $35 is just très ordinaire, why not make a splash with a bottle of Remy Martin Louis XIII Rare Cask 42,6? At $22,000 a bottle (sales tax not included), however, you may need to take out a mortgage. After 100 years in the cask, and seeing out the careers of four different cellar masters, the cognac cask was dusted off in 2009 by cellar master Pierrette Trichet.
Three years later in 2012, she declared that the cognac had reached perfection and the cask was tapped to produce just 738 decanters. This particular decanter is 460 of the 738 available. Cellar master Pierrette Trichet, checks the quality of a cognac barrel. Cellar master Pierrette Trichet, checks the quality of a cognac barrel. The 42,6 represents the 42.6% alcohol that makes up the blend -- the comma in the decimal place marking out its European provenance. St. Regis Atlanta bought the bottle, made of black Baccarat crystal with a rose gold neck band, back in 2012. Source: CNN.com
