Cucao Pedro Ximenez is a unique wine. It delivers freshness and fruitiness with a very well balanced acidity and fruit concentration!
The Elqui Valley is the northern most wine growing region of Chile, located 500 kilometres north of Santiago. This area is well known for its long, warm and dry summers and for having one of the clearest skies in the world. All this ensures that the grapes develop all their varietal potential. Pedro Ximenez is one of the oldest grapes varieties in Chile. It was originally introduced and developed in the north of Chile for the production of Pisco. Extremely rustic, it has survived to the very extreme conditions of soils and temperature with an extraordinary generosity, providing grapes with hard skin, great perfume and succulent juice. The vinification was done in stainless steel tanks to preserve its flavors and aromas. Ideal to be served as an aperitif or with sea food.
High & Mighty Beer Company began in 2006 as an offshoot of Shelton Brothers beer importing company. Will Shelton took his idea for a novel German-style ale to Paper City Brewery in Holyoke, Massachusetts, and Beer of the Gods was born, to extraordinary commercial success, critical acclaim, and unabashed adoration from beer geeks the world over.
Eventually, Will discovered that he enjoyed selling the beer he made even more than he did the splendid beers that Shelton Brothers imports, and in June 2008, he abandoned his brother to focus on making American beer that added an American attitude to the best of European beer styles. The beer is still lovingly made at Paper City, but look for High & Mighty to open a brewery of its own in 2012.
