2016 Raen Sonoma Coast Royal St. Robert




2016 Raen Sonoma Coast Royal St. Robert...$61.99
The Royal St. Robert cuvee is dedicated to our grandfather Robert Mondavi, who taught us to be committed to excellence. Our 2016 RSR cuvee comes from the true Sonoma Coast behind Bodega Bay and is a marriage of special lots that we feel are the best in our cellar. This wine opens with wild strawberries, crushed bing cherries, and rose petals that fill the bowl with sweet resin, white tea, thyme, forest floor and wet rock. The texture is rich, complex and leads to a long sumptuous finish.

Boot Hill Distillery Red Eye Whiskey




Boot Hill Distillery Red Eye Whiskey....$29.99
Boot Hill Distillery’s Red Eye Whiskey is a beautiful hand-crafted trail-aged, frontier-style Kansas whiskey. We take a mix of various barrel sizes and ages - a minimum of two months - that have bee shifted throughout our barrel storage space. These are then blended to recreate the style of powerful yet balanced whiskey you would have likely tasted in the 1880s when you stopped in Dodge City.

The end result is a Frontier-style Kansas whiskey with massive amounts of character. It’s so good, we were named the Best Whiskey in Kansas at the 2017 Heartland Spirits Fest in Chicago.

Nose: Prominent notes of sweet butterscotch with a delicate floral finish.
Neat: Bright wood on the front end with tons of vanilla and an unexpected spiciness. A beautiful blend of sweet and spice.
On the Rocks: Sweet grain, powerful vanilla, and soft oak across the back end.

Nose: Powerful burst of juniper up front with soft sweet hints of coriander and orange.

Neat: Bright juniper notes immediately flood the palate, with floral notes on the tail.

On the Rocks: The softer sweetness from the licorice and sarsaparilla roots and floral flavors of the gin press forward, with a citrus snap.

Charbay Whiskey





Charbay Whiskey R5...$72.99
Now in its fourth release, Charbay's R5 Lot No. 4 is double-distilled from Bear Republic Brewery's award-winning Racer 5 IPA® beer (7% abv)
Marko chose this IPA for its upfront aromatic hops, great dose of bittering hops, high quality two-row barley, balanced and a smooth, clean finish… See if you can taste how each of these is revealed in the whiskey.
Alcohol 49.5% | 99 Proof


Charbay S Whiskey Lot 211A...$119.99
In February 2011, Marko became intrigued by Bear Republic's Big Bear Stout - a beer that you can really sink your teeth into. The bold, roasty, caramel malt flavor is balanced by Centennial and Cascade hops.

"It's extremely complex. Single malts only use a single malt—this Stout has over five different malts, as well as adjuncts and several different hop varieties. All of these qualities come through into an extremely complex whiskey," explains Marko.

Charbay 'S' Whiskey was double-distilled in the family's copper Alambic Charentais Pot Still. Working 24 hours a day for 10 days straight, Marko distilled 6,000 gallons of beer distills into 590 gallons of whiskey (almost 10:1 ratio) to create roughly 650 cases altogether (10 barrels).

Flavor profile: dried apricot, honeysuckle, vanilla, roasted coffee, orange zest, hints of cardamom, chocolate malt, rich and chewy, brown spice
Aged in for 29 months in used French Oak
Lot 211A was distilled in February 2011 (the “A” stands for “aged”)
Tasting Notes: From Cigar Aficionado: "Fruity and herbal aromas; Palate: Hard candy, lemons and honey burst onto the palate and are followed by the advertised hoppy flavor. A definite taste of the stout comes through. Develops an orange-peel note." Jack Bettridge
Serving Suggestions: Enjoy room temperature neat, with a splash of spring water or a spring water ice cube.

Charbay Whiskey Release III



Charbay Whiskey Release III...$369.99
Pilsner Whiskey Release
2,713 bottles made"What if?" In 1999, Miles and Marko became fascinated by the idea of distilling bottle-ready beer into whiskey - a first in the whiskey industry.

They soon embarked on an amazing 3.5 weeks of distilling 24/7 in the family's classic 1000-gallon Alambic Charentais Pot Still. It took 20,000 gallons of great Pilsner to create just 1000 gallons (24 barrels) of Whiskey.

The result? Aromas of caramel and vanilla lead to maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, leather & tobacco. This whiskey is lush, with a full mouthfeel and lingering finish.

Notes: Aged 6 years in new American White Oak + 8 years in stainless. It’s the last of the Pilsner Whiskey. 228 case release.

Alcohol 66% | 132.4 Proof

Extraordinary oils in this yellow resin provide this dry-hopped extra pale ale with an undeniably pleasing floral aroma and clean, crisp finish. One sip of this seasonal summer ale and you too will believe.
