Where? X-TREME MOBILE ADVENTURES is based on the East Coast but will travel nationwide.

When? After years of thinking… Carl purchased a Sportsmobile and spent time with the team at Sportsmobile West in Fresno, CA. This spark fanned the fires of opportunity and the concept of X-TREME MOBILE ADVENTURES was born.

How? See Sponsorship!

Why? Read on…

The Adventure Began…

As an off-road enthusiast, I have owned dozens of four-wheel drive vehicles over the years. In 1999, I bought my first Land Rover and it literally changed my life. What I really bought was a lifestyle and all that Land Rover stands for (in my mind) – travel, exploration, and the freedom to go anywhere. I began working as a volunteer with a local dealership as what I called a “raving fan.”

I attended events, helped with training, and then started working with Overland Experts working expos, training, and just plain “helping the cause.” Overland Experts offers an off-road driving program taught by a biologist and teacher, not just some guy that loves the mud! As a volunteer, I became addicted to the lifestyle and gained valuable knowledge of off-road and overland travel. Overland Experts has spent years of dedication to perfecting the process of overland travel in a safe and environmentally safe way.

With a background in sales and marketing in financial services for over 26 years, the time has come to pursue another passion. I have spent the last five years investigating the idea of purchasing an all-terrain recreational vehicle–one I could use for traveling with my wife and family on weekends and overnight adventures. When I first saw the Sportsmobile–it just blew me away.

This self-contained vehicle sleeps four with the ability to walk thru into the back portion and features four-wheel drive, an electric roof, solar power, diesel furnace, a refrigerator and outdoor shower, now that’s camping! Alan Feld (of Sportsmobile West) is passionate about the product and helping people enjoy this lifestyle.

I have combined my love for off-road adventure with my sales and marketing skills to create X-TREME Mobile Adventures. The Sportsmobile allows me to travel to various places, attend shows and expos, and represent the products, services and companies that I believe in…things I would purchase that are valuable to those who love travel and off-road adventure.

Team members include my stepbrother and his wife, Jim and Kelly Tourtellotte, owners of a successful graphic design, marketing and publishing agency, who have assisted with the concept and creation of X-TREME Mobile Adventures. Together, we have developed a strong cross-marketing platform that includes on-the-road, in-person, and on-line sales capabilities providing X-TREME Mobile Adventure sponsors value and leverage (along with other complementary companies) that have the same passion for this adventurous lifestyle. We invite you to explore our website, become a sponsor, and give us your feedback.

Monkey 47 rated 100 points by Robert Parker

Robert Parker: Monkey 47 gin deserves 100 points
25 February, 2015
By Martin Green

The world’s most famous wine critic has thrown his weight behind Black Forest craft gin brand Monkey 47.

Black-Forest-Distillery

At a press conference in London this evening Robert Parker, famous for “making or breaking” wine brands by scoring them out of 100, said that if ever a gin deserved 100 points it was Monkey 47.14801.photo.2

 

 

 

 

 

Parker said: “Monkey 47 is the greatest gin I have ever tasted. It’s as good as it gets. If ever a gin deserves 100 points it’s that.

“The aromatics on it are just amazing.”

He added: “I tweeted about it and the owner sent me a letter, he was really pleased and he said they tried to make this gin like a wine.”

Wing Commander Montgomery Collins of the RAF created the gin when he was posted to the British zone of Berlin after the World War II, inspired both by the local flora and his upbringing in Madras.

Collins also sponsored a monkey in Berlin Zoo and later opened a guesthouse called the Wild Monkey. When the house was being done up at the start of this century the recipe was rediscovered and the gin was reborn as Monkey 47.

Monkey 47 is distributed by Spirit Cartel in the UK and retails for £40-£50.

Harvey Nichols’ wine and spirits buyer Ivan Dixon describes it as “a perfect combination of background story, quality of liquid, versatility and genius branding”.

HILL ROCK DISTILLERY / OFFICIAL SPONSOR

In the early 1800’s, New York produced more than half the young nation’s Barley and Rye and the Hudson Valley was the country’s breadbasket. With abundant high quality grain, local craft spirits flourished and over 1000 farm distilleries produced Whiskey and Gin reflecting the unique terroir of the region. In the 1930’s, Prohibition forced these distilleries to shut their doors and this wellspring of American spirits was left dry.
Hillrock Estate Distillery is changing this. Our mission is to produce the finest hand-crafted spirits made with our own grain, floor malted, craft distilled in our copper pot still, aged in fine oak and hand bottled at our estate in the Hudson Valley Highlands. Crowned by a fine 1806 Georgian house built by a successful grain merchant and Revolutionary War Captain and meticulously restored to its original beauty, Hillrock Distillery overlooks our rolling barley fields and the distant Berkshire Mountains. Like our premier spirits, every detail refined, no expense spared, quality steeped in the tradition of 200 years of rich history.
Hillrock Estate Distillery is located in the heart of the historic Hudson Valley two hours north of New York overlooking rolling hills and the distant Berkshire Mountains. Prime farmland, crystal clear water, favorable climate and a rich local history of fine spirits make a unique terroir which is profoundly expressed in Hillrock’s whiskeys.

Hillrock House was carefully restored in 2006 and the Palladian window above the entry is proudly displayed on the Hillrock bottle. Original twelve over twelve, wavy glass windows, hand planed wide board floors and period doors and trim speak of another era. The fine details and craftsmanship of the house reflect the pride of the region two hundred years ago and Hillrock’s commitment to quality and tradition.
The Hillrock Distillery, Malt House, Granary and Barrel Houses are located at the center of the estate surrounded by our rolling grain fields. Integrated into the landscape, the traditional barn structures convey a simple, timeless elegance. The complex also forms the heart of our “field-to-glass” craft distilling operation.The Distillery houses Hillrock’s custom-made copper distillation equipment. Our copper pot still, mash tun and spirit receiver were hand made by American craftsmen to our specifications. Housed in a traditional barn, the state-of-the-art equipment provides our master distiller with extraordinary control over the character and quality of each individual small batch of our premier artisanal spirits.
