Peanut Butter Whiskey

Peanut Butter Whiskey




Screwball Peanut Butter Whiskey...$26.99
Born in quirky Ocean Beach, California, Skrewball was created by a husband and wife duo, Brittany and Steven Yeng. Steven was a bartender and foodie who owned high volume restaurants. Brittany was an attorney who also had a Master’s in Chemistry. They were both
successful, but they never saw each other. When they saw his peanut butter whiskey cocktail out-selling any other spirit (and with a baby on the way), they decided to bottle their own peanut butter whiskey. But, it was much harder than they had thought. No wonder there is nothing like it in the market! After tons of experimentation, they ended up creating something even better than the original cocktail.  Why Peanut Butter? Steven is a Cambodian refugee and polio survivor. When he came to America, he was given baskets full of non-perishables including peanut butter. He fell in love with it. To him, it is the taste of America.

Deer Creek The Moon Rabbit Cheese
An infusion of Chartreuse and imagination
The Treif UK Trophy for Best Label Design – International Cheese Awards
2nd Place – American Cheese Society Awards

Deer Creek’s The Moon Rabbit is proof that the moon is truly made of green cheese. We’ve taken our
cured, sweet finish Cheddar and bathed it in Green Chartreuse liqueur. The Chartreuse adds a delicate herbal bouquet with hints of cloves, citrus, rosemary, and thyme that beautifully complements the cheese’s creaminess while imparting a light green hue. This special cheese comes in a 22 lb. daisy wheel wrapped in chartreuse colored foil for a unique and unforgettable presentation.

Our Favorite Pairings
Beverages: Gin on the Rocks, Crisp Unoaked Chardonnay, Rhône Red Wine, Blue Moon Belgian White Ale with a big slice of orange

Chartreuse Green - in stock at all locations
Green Chartreuse is the only liqueur in the world with a completely natural green colour.  It is powerful and unique.
Only two Chartreuse monks know the identity of the 130 plants, how to blend them and how to distill them into this world famous liqueur. They are also the only ones who know which plants they have to macerate to produce the natural green and yellow colours. And they alone supervise the slow ageing in oak casks.
Ingredients : alcohol, sugar, 130 plants and flowers.
Alcohol content : 55% (110° proof US)
Presentation : Packaged in a traditional Chartreuse liqueur bottle. Very elegant with the embossed seal of La Grande Chartreuse.
How to drink it : To bring out all its flavour, it should be consumed very cold, even on the rocks. Traditionally considered an after dinner drink, Chartreuse is more and more being enjoyed as a long drink

Mother's Paloma Gose







Mother's Paloma Gose...$7.99 / 4pk cans
Mother's Paloma Gose opens a can of whoop-ass on the classic gose profile by adding grapefruit, agave nectar, and lime peel for an eye-opening beer ready to replace your usual tired brunch cocktail.
Inspired by the classic Central American refresca. This beer is a modern gose with dried lime peel, salt, agave nectar and grapefruit juice. A strong acidity from the grapefruit and kettle souring is balanced by a slightly higher residual sugar (also from the grapefruit). A firm salinity helps to contrast these flavors while creating a dry, refreshing finish

New Belgium La Folie Sour








New Belgium La Folie Sour...$8.99 / 375ml
La Folie, French for "the folly," is a beer steeped in New Belgium brewing tradition. This wood-aged, sour brown spends one to three years in big, oak barrels, known as foeders. And when the beer finally hits the glass, La Folie is sharp and sour, full of green apple, cherry, and plum-skin notes. Pouring a deep mahogany, the mouthfeel will get you puckering while the smooth finish will get you smiling. Not a beer for the timid, La Folie is a sour delight that will turn your tongue on its head. Find out why it's considered one of the best sour beers around.

Macallan Rare Cask 2019 Release Batch No. 1



Macallan Rare Cask 2019 Release Batch No. 1...$249.99
Rare Cask's rich mahogany-red whisky showcases two of The Macallan’s greatest and most defining strengths - sherry seasoned oak casks and natural color.
Rare Cask combines knowledge, skill, passion, commitment and creativity to create a remarkable whisky worthy of its name.
Crafted to showcase complexity and depth, Rare Cask is drawn from the broadest spectrum of casks used in maturation on The Macallan Estate. Hand-picked by our whisky making team, the combination of sherry seasoned American and European oak casks - a high proportion of them first fill - deliver an exquisite and unmistakably woody whisky with a rich hue.
Incomparable access to the most extensive range of cooperages in Spain gives us some of the finest and scarcest casks to choose from to create Rare Cask, which results in a diversity in the finished whisky unlike other Macallan expression. It is the role of the whisky making team to get to know each and every cask in detail, from how it interacts with the spirit to the spectrum of colours it imparts. This relationship between cask and craftsman, spirit and skill, ultimately give us Rare Cask.
