Friday Night Tasting with our Rum and Tequila Expert, Austin Owens
Featuring our TWCP Barrel picks
At the (IN)Famous Bar in Clayton
Inside the The Wine and Cheese Place
Friday 10/21- Forsyth location only

Come in and taste some great rum & tequila barrel picks and hang out with Austin. He knows stuff so pepper him with questions about rum, tequila, natural wine, metaphysics and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Ron Izalco /TWCP Single Barrel 10 year Rum...$69.99 / 700ml (buy here)
Featuring a dark amber color with rich copper hues, Ron Izalco first opens your nose with fruity aroma reminiscent of apricots, prunes, honey, caramel, freshly-squeezed cane juice and jaggery. On the palate, it opens up with smooth mellow, slowly unfolding a complex body of rum congeners with undertones of American oak, toasted nuts and sweet pipe tobacco. The finish is long and satisfying, enhanced by patiently-oxidized tannins that combine perfectly with the rich flavors of the rum, resulting in a rewarding sipping experience that begs to be repeated over and over again.

Riverset / TWCP Rum Finished in Rye Casks...$47.99 (buy here)
Barrel Proof: 132.7 proof
Barrel No. 2
Imported from Venezuela Rum and finished in Memphis, TN. The Mississippi River was the main artery of North American spirits distribution. Whiskey was shipped downriver from Memphis, and rum was shipped upriver from New Orleans. With Riverset Rum, we have combined the profiles of these two spirits by finishing imported Caribbean rum in our Riverset Rye whiskey casks allowing the vanilla and spice notes from the whiskey to mellow the rum’s inherent sweetness, adding depth and complexity. Bottled at cask strength, Riverset Rum is designed for the experienced drinker who appreciates high proof spirits. Riverset Rum is not for the faint of heart. Go against the currents and push the limits with us. There’s always more room aboard this ship. Cheers!

Maestro Dobel / TWCP Anejo Tequila...$64.99 (buy here)
Single Estate Tequila Selected by TWCP
Selected for our 40th Anniversary
Ranch: La Mesa
Barrel Type: Hungarian and American Oak
Barrel # 7815

Oro de Coyame Sotol Vibora...$43.99 / 750ml (buy here)
Oro de Coyame Sotol Víbora – Aged in Red Oak Barrels for 4 Months with Rattlesnake Venom
Our Sotol Viper arises from the inhabitants of the old town of Paquimé, who used the poison of the rattlesnake as a healing element. To produce our sotol, it is not necessary to kill the snake but only to extract the poison. Its flavors are reminiscent of citrus and pine wood, rounded off by the sweetness of the sotol plant, with a touch of citrus peel and a complex aromatic background of rattlesnake venom
