New Perennial Vermilion is here








Old label pictured --

Current one is 13.6% ABV



Perennial Vermilion English Style Barleywine...$13.99 / 750ml



A big, rich English style Barleywine that, as its name suggests, has tints of ruby around the edges of its brown body, with a toffee, caramel, toasted pecan sweetness that is kept in balance with a smooth, alcohol warmth, and slightly fruity American hop note. This will be perfect around the fire, with a cigar, with a rich meal, or just while cozying up and relaxing with family and friends this season. It may be enjoyed right away, or allowed to age in the bottle. Vertical tastings are encouraged

Coquerel Calvados Fine.

Pere Magloire Calvados Fine V.S.....$34.99
FINE V.S., created using several vintages, is the freshest and fruitiest of the collection.

North Coast Barrel Aged Old Rasputin XX...$19.99 / 500ml
Every year we age a special batch of our much-loved Russian Imperial Stout in Bourbon barrels. The depth, intensity, and complexity of the flavor profile of this special release, like its predecessors, make it a worthy tribute to Old Rasputin.

Prior to 2010, Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin was released in such limited quantities that it was available only at the North Coast Brewing retail shop in Fort Bragg, California. However, we received so many requests for this beer that we began producing enough Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin to put into broader, but still limited, distribution.

Very limited Bourbon Releases

50% ABV
Batch #1
William F. Bond and Chrstopher C. Lillard partnered to create a golden, delicate style of Kentucky Bourbon -- before prohibition.

George Remus Repeal Reserve....$67.99
10-12 Year old Bourbons 
Introducing Remus Repeal Reserve, the first in what will be an annual ultra-limited release. Crafted with a medley of three different mash bills, Remus Repeal Reserve was made to commemorate the repeal of Prohibition on December 5, 1933. And when we say it’s ultra-limited, we mean it. So once it hits shelves on November 13th - King George’s birthday - expect it to go, and go fast. Remus Repeal Reserve offers a premium price point and boasts buttery toffee and honeyed smoothness, leading to a bold spiciness and a finish with notes of raisin, fig and toffee. All in all, Remus Repeal Reserve is the perfect complement to GEORGE REMUS® Bourbon in any liquor cabinet.

Limited - 3 different mash bills.

New Wild Turkey Master's Keep Decades

Whiskey Advocate #3 Whiskey of the Year 

In stock now


Rank: 3
Year: 2017
Score: 94


Wild Turkey often exhibits a delightful earthiness, and when earth meets sweet in whiskey, it’s a beautiful thing. Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Decades achieves a rich texture where deep-tilled soil, fresh-cut grass, and mushrooms meet leather and dark chocolate, followed by dill, oregano, and oak. Caramel and vanilla explode over a heavy dose of cinnamon. Master distiller Eddie Russell mingled barrels ranging from 10 to 20 years old in order to strike this balance and complexity. His method displays the potential of combining extremely old stocks into batches with younger barrels to build a great whiskey. —Fred Minnick






Wild Turkey Master's Keep Decades....$129.99

104 Proof
Non Chill Filtered
Aged 10-20 Years
This is the 2nd Edition of Master's Keep, it follows up the 17 Year Old release.  It came from the middle and upper floors of the McBrayer Rickhouse.

Tamdhu Batch Strength - Batch #2



In stock now

Rank: 8
Year: 2017
Score: 93
Price: $90
ABV: 58.5%
Style: Single Malt
Place of Origin: Scotland (Speyside)

Historically used for blending, Tamdhu flies under the radar of many scotch aficionados. But this underappreciated Speyside whisky compares well with more famous sherry bombs by offering a sweet, savory, slightly funky depth. At first sniff, Tamdhu seems like it might knock you out with one blow—but this gentle giant is a lover, not a fighter. Viscous and meaty, this cask-strength stunner reveals dried fruit, dark chocolate ganache, ginger spice, and saline minerality, thundering softly into a long finish. Ian Macleod Distillers revived Tamdhu, and their pledge to bring Rosebank back to life excites us to rediscover more top-quality whisky with a distinct identity. —Susannah Skiver Barton







Tamdhu Batch Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky...$77.99

Batch #2
58.5% ABV
A Tamdhu for the devoted malt fan, this magnificent edition is bottled un-chillfiltered at natural colour and high strength. Each batch is unique and varies slightly in style and intensity.

As with every bottle of Tamdhu, once distilled it is matured exclusively in hand-selected sherry oak casks. Our oak is amongst the finest in the industry, with a high proportion being first-fill and teeming with flavour.

Finally, patience is required to allow these fine casks to do their work, giving Tamdhu its deep colour and exquisite quality.

Prairie Artisan Ales Christmas Bomb




Prairie Artisan Ales Christmas Bomb....$6.99 /12oz
13% ABV
Our favorite base stout has once again made a comeback as Christmas Bomb.  We've taken Bomb! and added the perfect blend of Christmas spices to this beer.  Cinnamon, coffee, vanilla, and chocolate will make you wish it was Christmas all year long!

"Italy has a certain “je ne sais quoi” – fab food culture, highly decadent history of art and cool countryside. Some might argue the people are loud and flamboyant, they steal our women, and their soccer players melodramatically flop on the pitch. Listen – that’s all part of the secret Italian ingredient – keep it cool, confident, arrogant and extravagant. Forza Italia!"

Ohishi Brandy Cask Japanese Whisky


NEW

Ohishi Brandy Cask Japanese Whisky....$57.99
Ohishi Brandy Cask Whisky is a marriage of just a few casks of whisky that have been matured in ex-brandy barrels. The brandy casks give an elegance of soft oak, vanilla, pineapple and a touch of oxidation and rancio that compliments the silkiness of the rice in a very complex manner.

Ohishi Distillery
Ohishi is the closest distillery to the source of the Kuma River. The Kuma River is one of the 3 fastest flowing in Japan and is renowned for its superior water quality. The Ohishi Distillery is blessed with fertile Soil and clear underground water, elements of an environment in which it upholds tradition but is always open to experimenting with new approaches. They use 30% of rice grown in their own fields. It is “gohyakumanishi”( 5 million stones) rice. The gohyakumanishi rice is grown in Ubuyamamura using an organic farming method that involves the use of koi carp to control weeds in paddy fields). They combine it with a mochi rice from Kumamoto Prefecture as a main ingredient. With about 1200 Sherry and Brandy casks, Ohishi Distillery puts a lot of effort into maturing its products over a long period of time.

Laphroaig Single Malt Scotch 27 Year Old Double Matured Limited Edition



Next lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $749.99
Laphroaig Single Malt Scotch 27 Year Old Double Matured Limited Edition...$699.99

41.7% ABV
Missouri is very fortunate to be 1 of 14 states in the U.S. that we will be receiving the highly, highly allocated Laphroaig 27yr in a couple of weeks. This is a one time offering, with only 2,400 bottles released in the US. 

The specifics are:
To make this exquisite liquid, mature Laphroaig previously aged in refill hogsheads was transferred into first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and refill quarter casks. Patiently aged in Laphroaig’s famous Warehouse No. 1, these casks were then hand selected for a final maturation. This rare whisky features a touch of Laphroaig’s trademark peat smoke tempered by lime and sea salt.
