Maker's Mark Cask Strength

New Batch!

Maker's Mark Cask Strength...$35.99 / 750ml
Compare to $36.99 at Total Wine and More
  • Batch 21-08
  • 112.5% ABV
If you can imagine the caramel, vanilla and fruity notes of Maker's Mark® turned all the way up, you'd have a pretty good idea of what Maker's Mark® Cask Strength is like. Of course, the best way to get to know it is to sample some for yourself. While the higher proof delivers a bold bourbon presence in cocktails, we recommend drinking this surprisingly smooth barrel-proof whisky neat, on the rocks or with a splash.
A long time coming.
For years, Bill Samuels, Jr., regularly scoffed at the notion of a barrel-proof Maker's

Perennial Ales California Common Lager


Perennial Ales California Common Lager...$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
California Common is a classic American brew. This amber colored beer was created to use lager yeasts in early western towns that didn't have the ability to cool wort to lagering temperatures. Fermenting the beer at ale temperatures allows a mild fruity ester to appear on the nose. The flavor balances the toasty caramel/toffee malt sweetness with a hit of floral hop bitterness before finishing slightly dry and crisp.

We will be pouring the following wines at all 4 locations this weekend from 11a-2pm or until the bottles are empty:

  • 2020 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Joel Falmet Brut Rose Champagne
  • Domaine Collin Cremant de Limoux Brut Rose

(not here yet, but arrives this week!)
2020 Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley...$79.98
Compare to $79.97 at Total Wine and More
Caymus has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe, velvety tannins – as approachable in youth as in maturity. We farm Cabernet grapes in eight of Napa’s 16 sub-appellations, with diversification enabling us to make the best possible wine in a given year. Our Cabernet offers layered, lush aromas and flavors, including cocoa, cassis and ripe dark berries

Bargain Rose Brut
Domaine Collin Cremant de Limoux Brut Rose...$19.99
Chardonnay 75% Chenin Blanc 15% Pinot Noir 10%
Philippe Collin, a native of Champagne, moved to Limoux in 1980 to establish his own domaine. Though his family has made Champagne for generations, the opportunities in this sought after, and extremely expensive area, were very limited.
This elegantly constructed rosé is pale salmon pink in color. Though the wine is primarily made from Chardonnay, subtle wild strawberry notes are detectable in the nose and on the palate from the Pinot Noir. The crisp, mineral Chardonnay is softened by the lush and aromatic Chenin Blanc. The result is a lively wine with a lot of character, without any aggressive or astringent notes. This is a wonderfully versatile rosé ideal for pork and salmon dishes, or simply on its own as an aperitif

What a fantastic value in Rose Champagne. Tiny production!
Joel Falmet Brut Rose Champagne...$49.99
Made from 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay
Blood orange, red fruit and rhubarb on the floral- and spice-accented nose and on the palate. Taut and linear but fleshes out with air, showing very good intensity and finishing with lingering rose pastille and bitter cherry notes.
Rated 90/100 Vinous Media

Joël makes a small amount of rosé, about 160 cases per year. Joël’s rosé is made by adding aproximately 10% still red wine (100% Pinot Noir) to the blend. Dosage for the rosé is 12 grams per liter (to be called Brut, a Champagne must have less than 15 grams per liter).
