Town Branch Limited Releases

Very limited releases



Town Branch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Sherry Cask...$59.99
96.4 proof
Sherry Cask Finished expression
"The Town Branch Sherry Cask Finished Kentucky Straight Bourbon has even more limited availability, with only 500 cases available to purchase. The blend is made from Bourbon drawn from 26 oloroso Sherry casks, combined with several single-barrel Bourbons that are individually finished in oloroso Sherry barrels.

Most whiskeys in the blend are approximately six years old. The resulting liquid boasts ‘pronounced complexity and an exceptionally smooth finish’.

Master distiller of Town Branch Distillery Mark Coffman said: “This whiskey is truly handcrafted. There is no automation in the distillation process, and I decide where to make the cuts." - The Spirit Business



Town Branch Straight Bourbon True Cask....$38.99
108.1 proof
"The Town Branch True Cask Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a 50/50 blend of two distinct mash bills – a higher-malt mash and Kentucky Bourbon mash. Only 1,800 cases of the expression have been produced.
“We want to show a Bourbon that was true to the cask, because the true beauty of the barrels is usually only tasted by the blenders and distillers,” said Alan Kennedy, head blender of Town Branch Distillery.
“We are bringing that experience home and giving everyone a look inside the cask in a way that very few distilleries can. Blending is vital to the development of each batch’s flavour profile, and each barrel used for True Cask is hand selected for its unique characteristics.
“My favourite aspect of True Cask is the development of flavours that we are able to highlight through thoughtful and meticulous blending.”
The True Cask is non-chill filtered, with notes of caramel and sweet corn leading to dried fruits on the nose. The palate contains flavours of toasted cinnamon with apricot and hints of leather, and the finish leads to hints of oak and baking spices." - The Spirit Business


Perennial Fantastic Voyage Stout







Perennial Fantastic Voyage....$10.99 / 2 pk 16oz
The other major update is the beer itself, Fantastic Voyage will now feature the same base stout as Abraxas and Sump. This means it will have the wonderful, rich body and 11.5% ABV you are familiar with from all of our stouts! The rebirth of Fantastic Voyage is a return to slow jams and silk sheets. We combine a smooth yet strong imperial milk stout base with a heap of dried coconut in the whirlpool. The result is a luscious blend of bakers chocolate, subtle roast, and sweet coconut. So take a sip and just sail on. Perennial Artisan Ales is a small batch craft brewery dedicated to producing unique, premium beers. Our beers are brewed with the experimental, seasoned craft beer drinker in mind.

Elouan Pinot Noir Oregon









2018 Elouan Pinot Noir Oregon....$16.99

Suggested retail ($25) 
Lush, earthy, and packed with juicy cherry and plum, this is an exquisite expression of Oregon wine country at a great price. It’s a big, bold style, but it delivers superb acidity and a deep, rich concentration of ripe summer berries.
Rated 92/100 The Tasting Panel

Owner/Winemaker: Joseph Wagner (of the Caymus, Meiomi, and Belle Glos family)
Joe is a fifth generation Napa Valley winemaker with a dedicated passion for the business. In 2001 at age nineteen, he rolled up his sleeves and has yet to look back. His passion and natural talent for winemaking quickly became apparent after he started his own award-winning single vineyard Pinot Noir label, Belle Glos.

Chave Hermitage Blanc





2018 Chave Hermitage Blanc...$279.99

The 2018 Hermitage Blanc was still in its various components, so my rating and description is something of a composite, based on barrel-tasting lots from Péléat, Les Rocoules and L'Ermite. There's incredible weight, ripeness and richness throughout, with hints of toast and crocuses accenting white peach, melon and pineapple fruit, yet also a sense of vibrance and briny freshness on the lengthy finishes.
Rated 95-97/100 Wine Advocate
I was able to taste the 2018 Hermitage Blanc from multiple barrels and tank, and I continue to think Jean-Louis fashions one of the greatest whites on planet earth. Gorgeous white flowers, honeysuckle, ripe quince, and toasted almond notes dominate the bouquet, and it has that rare mix of richness and opulence paired with incredible purity, freshness, and focus. It has a wealth of material yet also shows the vintage’s more rounded, sexy style. Plan on drinking bottles on release and over the following 2-4 years or hold off for a decade. It’s certainly in the same ballpark as the 2017.
Rated 96-98/100 Jeb Dunnuck
The thickness of the skins on Chave’s old vine parcels is what gives this wine its unrestricted depth and intensity, as well as it s ability to age for a very long time. Aromas run from very pretty and floral, through peaches and lemons and into crushed and grilled nuts. The palate is such a textural essay with an attractively youthful and pithy shunt of tannin that underwrites a considerably long finish and long cellaring potential. Age and try from 2030.
Rated 96-97/100 James Suckling
Tasted in components. #1) Rocoules Haut: A touch of iodine, smoky, mineral-accented orchard and pit fruits on the nose and palate. Chewy and precise, with no excess fat and a building mineral flourish. #2) Rocoules mid-slope: Taut and energetic in style, showing very good depth to its juicy Anjou pear, yellow apple and honeysuckle flavors. Plays richness off of energy with a steady hand. #3) Rocoules Bas: Nectarine, honey and floral qualities are sharpened by a suggestion of orange zest. Weighty yet precise, with a jolt of minerality adding back-end grip. #4) Peleat: Lively and precise, offering intense citrus, orchard fruit flavors, building iodine and smoky mineral nuances. Very long and tight, with a sexy floral nuance emerging steadily. #5) Peleat old vines: Deeply perfumed pear nectar and orange marmalade qualities on the nose and palate. Becomes livelier with a bit of air and shows fine delineation on the back half. These vines are at least 120 years old, Jean-Louis Chave told me. #6) Ermite: Emphatically mineral and precise on the nose, displaying vibrant Meyer lemon, white peach and floral qualities and a strong mineral overtone. Chewy and tightly wound, with superb depth, serious closing energy and repeating florality.
