February’s top 10 new products

Asbach Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Vintage Reserve 1952


German distiller Asbach is marking its 120th anniversary with a special edition vintage brandy: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Vintage Reserve 1952.

Only 900 one-litre carafes of the brandy have been produced, with cellar master Christopher Dellee filling the first by hand.

Each is housed in a Bohemian-style glass bottle with an individual cask number and a certificate of authenticity encased in a box made of wood from the Bavarian forest. The case also comes with a pair of Asbach branded glasses. The spirit was created at the Rüdesheim distillery on the river Rhine using a select 1952 white wine, which was distilled and left to age for six decades. RRP: £1,700

    This is a mighty fine drop, but not a 750GBP mighty drop, perhaps amend the RRP with a well placed decimal.

    Malacca is the Greek slang word for wanker!
