Coffee of the highest order, coffee that delights: this is Illy’s mission, passion and obsession.  A simple idea created through complex means: eight decades of experience; unmatched knowledge of coffee biology and chemistry; unrivalled skill at roasting; the pioneering of innovative, enabling technologies; and a family’s entrepreneurial passion.

There is a taste, a feel, an aroma that is all Illy’s own. Velvety, immediately sweet, delicately balancing floral and fruity notes with caramel, toast and chocolate, naturally fragrant with aromas of almond and honey.  You just might hold the sugar, for the very first time.

This is balance that comes only from a blend: the singular Illy blend of nine highest-order Arabica beans, selected and directly purchased by Illy from farms spanning four continents.  Each individual bean contributing to a greater whole, for the pleasure of those who appreciate all that coffee can and should be.  

In the cup, the Illy blend becomes a symphony: rich, full, multi-faceted, yet subtle, comprised of immensely talented soloists, each coaxed to their finest performance under the hand of an expert conductor.

Rhum Bougainville



As a leading South African ambassador and one of the most recognizable faces in the world of sport, Ernie Els’ life has mirrored a passion for excellence. His focus, discipline and commitment have been the foundation of his success, and these factors are evident in his quest to produce premium wine. Befittingly Ernie chose Stellenbosch to produce his wines and in 1999, with the help of award-winning winemaker Louis Strydom, the maiden vintage of Ernie Els Signature was made. 18 years on from these humble beginnings, this exciting venue now crafts a selection of award winning wines.


Produced by the Buffalo Trace distillery, Benchmark Old Number 8 has become a great classic in the category of accessible but good quality bourbon whiskeys. Sweet on the nose and characterised by notes of citrus fruit, the palate reveals lots of caramel, chocolate and cinnamon and a hint of orange.



The heir to age-old Russian traditions, POLIAKOV Vodka is made from a selection of the best grains and distilled three times for unique purity and extreme finesse. Its crystalline clarity unfolds a well-balanced bouquet of ripe pear, tropical fruit including mango and pineapple, a rich texture in the mouth and a crisp, delicate finish.
