Brewed with Chicago Rock Band Twin Peaks
For the fourth year in a row Goose Island has collaborated with one of the musical artists performing at Pitchfork Music Festival.

Elephant Sloe Gin

Elephant Sloe Gin...$37.99
Elephant Sloe Gin combines the premium London Dry Gin with the classic flavour of wild fresh sloe berries. The fruit is harvested by hand and carefully selected; keeping only the best berries for the sloe gin production. Elephant Sloe Gin is strictly limited to one vintage a year.

Macerated in the gin for several months, these wild berries provide their typical flavour and warm red colour to the spirit.

Compared to other sloe gins, it has a relatively low sugar content paired with a higher alcohol volume of 35% ABV. This makes it ideally suited to mixing in cocktails as well as enjoying it neat.

Taste and Aromas: Elephant Sloe Gin has a richly rounded, lightly sweet and exquisitely fruity bouquet as well as a typical warm red colour to the spirit. The deliberately discreet addition of sugar triggers a perfect balance between tart and sweet notes; without the need for additional artificial flavours.

Design:  Every other Elephant Sloe Gin bottle comes with a set of colourful beads tied around the neck of the bottles.They are handcrafted especially for Elephant Gin by the Maasai in Kenya. Use them as a bracelet or necklace – whatever your preference!

The Elephant Sloe Gin is only produced once a year and the labels feature the vintage year – handwritten by our calligrapher, of course.

Teerenpeli Kaski Single Malt Whisky...$89.99
100% Sherry cask
Traditionally in agriculture before farming the first thing was to slash and burn the ground to produce KASKI (swidden). This also gives the name to the whisky, KASKI the first phase of cultivation – a new beginning.
KASKI has matured only in selected sherry casks, so it has a color of roasted brown sugar. The scent has notes of fruitiness and a light peat. The taste is smooth, grain-like and rich. Teerenpeli Distillery’s typical spicy aftertaste combines raisin-like fruit cake. KASKI whisky is ideal avec drink.

Teerenpeli Pyygin Gin...$47.99

PyyGin is well balanced craft distilled gin with lovely citrus taste in the finish.   Teerenpeli distillery uses ten different botanicals in PyyGin. The unique taste combination of juniper berries and aroma hops with local birch leaves and lingonberry go together perfectly.   The distillation in real pot still unites the flavors for this superb gin. The name PyyGin is derived from the Teerenpeli owner last name Pyysing. 

Robert Mondavi The Reserve Cabernet To-Kalon

2015 Robert Mondavi The Reserve Cabernet To-Kalon...$117.99
Composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon Reserve features a deep garnet-purple color and wonderfully expressive nose of crème de cassis, preserved plums and black forest cake with hints of cigar boxes, aniseed, dark chocolate and forest floor. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated in the mouth, the ripe, opulent black fruit is well supported by velvety tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and spicy.
Rated 96+/100 The Wine Advocate
A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Petite Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon The Reserve To Kalon Vineyard is about as perfumed, upfront and sexy as they come. Sporting a ruby/plum color and a terrific bouquet of black raspberries, cedary spice, toasty oak, flowers and incense, it hits the palate with loads of sweet fruit, an undeniable opulence, ripe tannin and a great finish. It's an approachable 2015 that's going to evolve gracefully for another two decades.
Rated 95/100 Jeb Dunnuck
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon Vineyard is one of the finest wines I have tasted from Robert Mondavi of late. Sumptuous, rich and expansive, the 2015 offers tremendous fruit density and freshness, something that was especially hard to come by in this very challenging year. With its soft edges and voluptuous curves, the 2015 will drink well with minimal cellaring. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem. Core To Kalon parcels include MacDonald, Monastery and T.
Rated 95+/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The fifth vintage of this iconic vineyard-designate reserve comes in at 14.5% ABV and comprises 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cab Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. Although I'm inspired to write a sonnet after tasting it, I attempted to translate my notes into these succinct descriptives: Toffee-cedar and plum preserves accent the nose with an undertone of leather and coffee as teh satiny entry leads to a dustier mid-palate. Tannins wrap the tongue with fleshy dark chocolate and dense blueberry oak.
Rated 98/100 The Tasting Panel

José Maria da Fonseca José de Sousa Red

2015 José Maria da Fonseca José de Sousa Red...$16.99
Partly fermented in clay amphora, this wood-aged wine is dense and impressively concentrated. Powerful tannins accompany the juicy black fruits and acidity, pointing towards a long-term future. Dominated by the red juiced Grand Noir, it is likely to be ready to drink from 2021.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Enthusiast

Old Forester Straight Rye

Old Forester Straight Rye 100 Proof...$21.99
In 1870, our founder George Garvin Brown revolutionized the industry by sealing Bourbon in a glass bottle for the first time. Five generations and nearly 150 years later, we are proud to introduce the first Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky from The First Bottled Bourbo. A historic recipe, acquired in 1940 by Owsley Brown I, Old Forester Rye features a mash bill of 65% Rye, 20% Malted Barley, and 15% Corn. Such a high proportion of barley allows for a fully natural fermentation process, forgoing the need for artificial enzymes commonly found in high rye mash bills. Additionally, a generous percentage of malt yields a unique floral character, balancing the sharp, brisk spice of the rye grain. Continuing our legacy of quality and consistency, Old Forester uses its own proprietary yeast strain, produces every barrel, and distills every drop. At 100 proof, Old Forester Rye plays beautifully in a cocktail but also stands up boldly on its own.

America's first barrel-aged soju
Smooth with a kiss of oak. Sip it neat or on the rocks.

West 32 Soju....$11.99 / 375
Product of New York – All Natural – Gluten Free
When Koreans want to have fun, soju is always included. Distilled in the country for hundreds of years, low-proof “Korean vodka” is the most important guest at social gatherings, parties, and celebrations. Some sojus have fruity notes; others are described as milky. But almost all sojus are sweet – sometimes intensely so.
These days, most sojus are mass-produced and mixed with artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and other tongue-twisting chemicals. The result is what you might expect: an overly processed, sickly sweetened beverage with a lingering, unpleasant aftertaste. This is far removed from the original Korean drink.

Exceptionally smooth finish
We wanted to make a different spirit—one that continued the time-honored Korean ritual of celebrating life with soju. We didn’t have to go far: locally made in New York City, West 32 Soju is made from distilled corn so it’s naturally gluten free. Our soju is sweetened with a touch of natural cane sugar and then triple-filtered for an exceptionally smooth finish. Made from the highest quality all-natural ingredients, the result is simply the best soju. Chill a bottle of West 32 Soju and drink it neat, on the rocks, or mixed into cocktails for a Korean kick. Or do as we do: gather a group of friends, pour chilled soju into shot glasses, and sip until the bottle is dry

Series 9 of 14
Have guitar, will travel. Check. Have mash paddle, will travel. Check. Have invitation to Berlin to brew, will travel. Hell yeah. Cue our friend Todd Haug. He checked all those boxes and joined us to make this inspired and unique creation. Our Stone Berlin Brewmaster Thomas Tyrell has spent many years studying and brewing versions of the consummate Berlin style, the Berliner Weisse. Todd was intrigued with the idea of überizing (wasn't a real word before, but it is now) the style and wanted to further überize (how quickly a new word can find its wayinto the lexicon) with the addition of ginger root and Citrus Hystrix leaf. They worked perfectly, as you'll see. Todd, Thomas and Greg all agreed they'd never tasted anything quite like it before, and that they all loved it. So now, it has traveled time and space to you. Check it!
