Tastings this weekend!

Join us Friday (November 26th) from 4:30 to 6:30 as we taste three great classic Kentucky bourbons with St. Louis connections!

Rebel Yell/TWCP Single Barrel Cask Strength Wheated Bourbon $45.99
Only 234 bottles were made of this 5 year old, 120 proof gem from St. Louis owned distributor, Luxco. Rebel Yell is back and better than ever with focused efforts to bring the brand up to speed with the ever-improving bourbon market. This Single Barrel shows they have succeeded!

Rebel Yell Reserve Whiskey $22.99
The nose is sugar syrup-forward sweet, with a double spoonful of vanilla and a pinch of dry, toasty wood. On the tongue, that sweetness is more orange blossom honey than corn sweet, with the vanilla and touch of dry wood as expected. The finish is plain and warm. In short, it’s a simple, straight-forward wheated bourbon. -- The Whiskey Reviewer

Yellow Stone Select Bourbon 93 Proof $34.99

Also from Luxco...Aromas of caramel, herbal, “organic licorice”, brown sugar, Bananas Foster spice and a light bit of dark fruit and pie crust, compliment a taste of peanuts, hazelnuts, toffee, caramel and spice combined with light notes of citrus peel, wood and 
vanilla. That dark sweet and nutty character made me think of candied nuts and peanut brittle every time I took a sip. Finishes with wood, toffee, and spice.
The Whiskey Jug


Join us this Saturday (November 27) from 1pm to 3pm at ALL FOUR locations including our NEW Kirkwood store as we taste some of the best values France has to offer.

2020 Medimer Viognier Languedoc, France $13.99
It is hard to find a great inexpensive Viognier, so we are very excited to find this one, gorgeous nose of peaches and apricots. It has flavors of tangerine, almonds and a hint of ginger with depth and weight. Perfect for an aperitif wine and also with seafood or spicy foods! -- TWCP

2019 Chateau Maison Neuve Sauvignon Blanc Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux, France $15.99
This wine presents a pale yellow color that is very fresh on the nose with the classic Sauvignon characteristics of gooseberries. Dry and full bodied, its finish is long and mellow with just a hint of citrus. The wine is made with very low yields from 25 year old vines. -- TWCP

2019 Chateau Maison Neuve Rouge Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux, France $15.99

An intense and deep color when you pour it and the nose blossoms to reveal beautiful aromas of gently roasted plums, lilacs, vanilla, and coffee, and a touch of spice. The mouth is big and rich, delivering black cherries, dark plums, and hints of graphite. Château Maison Neuve is located near Blaye in the Côtes de Bordeaux vineyards north of Bordeaux, across the river from Médoc. --TWCP
