Aviation Gin



Great price on this highly rated gin!
Aviation Gin...$19.99 / 750ml

compare to Total Wine and More at $26.99

With its clean, neutral profile, this graceful gin works well with just about anything, from aviation cocktails to bone-dry martinis. On the palate, look for bewitching hints of caraway, juniper, grapefruit and a dry, faintly spicy finish. ABV: 42%
Rated 97/100 The Wine Enthusiast


Our Declaration of Independence
Aviation belongs to an entirely new category of dry gins. These gins embody a shift away from the usual overabundance of juniper toward a more forward balance of botanicals. Aviation explores the rich, floral and savory notes of lavender, cardamom, and sarsaparilla to capture the lushness, spice, creativity, and freshness of the Pacific Northwest. In this way, we offer the American palate its first real taste of American gin.

Why the name “Aviation”?
A simple and unique balance of gin, maraschino liqueur, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. That’s the classic Aviation cocktail invented by barman Hugo Ensslin at New York’s Hotel Wallick almost a century ago. One taste is all it took for Aviation co-founder Ryan Magarian to realize that instead of being limited to martinis and gin & tonics, “gin, in the hands of a passionate and well trained bartender, just might be the world’s most mixable spirit.” So a brand name, and a mission, was born.

Tuscan Perfection from Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona

Picture-Perfect 2015 Brunello di Montalcino
-Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

The 2015 Vintage of Brunello di Montalcino is considered among the best in the past 20 Years. There will no doubt be many great wines from this vintage hitting the shelves over the next few months, but we thought it best to start at the top, with store favorite Ciacci Piccolamini d'Aragona.



Arrives today!


2015 Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso....$74.98
The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is distinguished by a unique aromatic profile that brings out mineral notes of crushed limestone or chalk. This adds a greater sense of focus and delineation that not only characterizes the bouquet but also applies to the way the wine hits the palate in a fuller and more determined way (compared to the slightly softer classic Brunello). Instead, this single-vineyard Brunello shows an upright and direct approach with soft salinity on the close followed by forest fruit, spice and medicinal herb. The mouthfeel makes a big impact thanks to its streamlined and polished texture.
Rated 100/100 James Suckling
Rated 96/100 The Wine Advocate



2015 Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino...$55.98 750ml
2015 Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino...$33.98 375ml
The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona estate enjoys a beautiful and huge expanse of vineyards at the back of the Castelnuovo dell'Abate village, where the downward slope of the hamlet meets the Orcia River, which delineates the appellation border. The estate's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers lovely harmony and elegance. The wine's taste profile follows the soft contours and beautiful horizons that characterize this beautiful part of Tuscany. The mouthfeel is medium-weight but carefully balanced with just enough acidity to add brightness. It shows just enough backbone to guarantee staying power and longevity. That said, the tannins are carefully integrated into the delicate fiber of the wine. This is no doubt one of the most graceful Brunellos to emerge from the 2015 vintage

Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc


Consistent year after year.
Great value!
2018/19 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc...$11.98

Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
2018 -- Pairs brilliantly with fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or summer salads. Grapefruit nose; juicy and bright citrus with a smooth, ripe hint of sweetness on the back of the palate. Layered and mellow, long and balanced.
Rated 91/100 Tasting Panel
2019 -- Smooth and invigorating with lovely ripe fruit, this is a racy, tangy, and crisp wine with a long and balanced finish. Pretty fine considering Kim has left the building.

A nice value at twenty-five bucks.

Buxton x omnipollo yellow belly final batch
Peanut butter and biscuit imperial stout

Yellow belly 
Our celebrated collaboration with our great friends at Omnipollo, (Stockholm, Sweden). A bold and outspoken peanut butter & biscuit imperial stout, however, it is brewed without peanut butter or biscuit.

The Rainbow Project challenge created by Siren Craft Brew (Wokingham, UK), brings together 14 breweries to make 7 collaborative beers themed on the colours of the rainbow. In 2014, we drew ‘Yellow’ out of the hat and were paired up with the Stockholm based Omnipollo.

We all sat down and discussed what we could brew based on the idea of ‘Yellow’. After some time, we arrived at the consensus that the prime meaning or idea expressed by the colour yellow is cowardice. Our next challenge was to transpose this idea, and our sentiments around it, into a beer.

The political situation throughout Europe was in turmoil at the time, National Front, Sverigedemokraterna, British National Party, EDL, Dank Folkeparti, Vlaams Belong, Lega Nord, Fremsrittspartiet, Saanfinländarna, Golden Dawn…the list goes on and on. From Omnipollo’s Henok Fentie; “One thing that struck us while the preliminary political polls were being presented during election night was that the actual support for the Swedish fascist party was in reality 40% higher than what people had disclosed when asked (face to face) what they voted for just after casting their ballot. At the same time the polls were more or less accurate when it came to other parties on the political scale.” What does this mean? One thing that it could mean is that although people vote extreme right they are on average not as prone to admitting to it as people voting for other parties are. Being a coward can mean many different things, but protesting anonymously at the expense of people’s freedom and right to co-exist without showing your face is one meaning that is particularly relevant at this moment in time.

So, with all this in mind, for our ‘Yellow’ beer, we made an 11% Peanut Butter and Biscuit Imperial Stout. Except there are no peanuts or biscuits in it, and it is in no way yellow. We then dressed it in the most hateful, cowardly-anonymous costume we know of.

This beer, whilst attempting to make a commentary on the current political winds blowing through Europe, is above all, meant to be enjoyed as a celebration of all things new, open minded and progressive.
Taste, enjoy and don’t be prejudiced.
ABV: 11%

About the winery
Our wines are made to showcase the complexity of flavor, diversity of terroir, and distinct characteristics of California’s appellations and wine regions. Our proprietor and vintner Trevor Sheehan started his journey to create a top wine collection when he became a winemaker 10 years ago. His first wines were eight barrels of Chardonnay from the Beckstoffer Vineyard and Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain. Trevor carefully defined his own wine making style over the years drawing inspiration from fellow winemakers such as Nils Venge and Henri Jayer.
