Rothaus Tannenzäpfle Pils... 5 liter mini keg

Rothaus Tannenzäpfle Pils...$34.99 / 5 liter mini keg

The Rothaus Brewery is Germany’s highest brewery by elevation, at 1,000 meters above sea level. Situated in Germany’s beautiful Black Forest, the brewery was first established in 1791. Today, Rothaus is accredited as one of the most successful breweries in Germany, largely due to the high quality of their products.

Tannenzäpfle means “pine cone” in German – a fitting name as there are many pine cone producing spruce-fir trees in the Black Forest.

The icon, “Biergit” (beer girl), a Black Forest girl holding two glasses of beer, first debuted in 1956 and is now the defining symbol for all beers made for the Rothaus Brewery.

Tannenzäpfle Pils – Tannenzäpfle is made from the finest, all-natural ingredients Germany has to offer:
  • Water sourced from 7 natural springs in the heart of the Black Forest.
  • Malted barley from the Highlands and Valleys of the Black Forest.
  • Aroma hops from the Tettnang and Hallertau areas next to the Black Forest.
  • The yeast is cultivated at the brewery and is exclusively used in Rothaus beers.
  • No bitter hops are ever added to Tannenzäpfle Pils and no other ingredients are used in brewing this deliciously refreshing Pilsner.

Czechvar Lager = 5 liter!

Czechvar Lager...$23.99 / 5 liter can
Brewed using whole-cone, Saaz hops from Žatec, pristine water from an Ice Age aquifer, Moravian malting barley and our heritage lager yeast, this classic rich and full-flavoured lager sets the gold standard for Czech brewing across the world. The tradition of cold-conditioning in our brewery cellars for seven times longer than most other beers creates a pale lager with a sweet, deep golden body and an aromatic, hoppy foam. Bold in taste, yet refreshing and perfectly balanced.

Only four ingredients go into Czechvar: whole-cone Saaz hops, Moravian malt, our heritage lager yeast and pure soft water, drawn from an Ice Age aquifer 300m underneath our brewery. And it’s been this way since 1895.

Chartreuse Yellow

 We cannot get Green Charteuse right now.

We have not seen Yellow in awhile either.  We scored 12 bottles for all stores combined!

Chartreuse Yellow....$59.99 / 750ml
YELLOW CHARTREUSE 43% alcohol (80° proof US)
Milder and sweeter than the famous Green Chartreuse, Yellow Chartreuse was introduced to the world in 1840. It also is presented in the traditional Chartreuse liqueur bottle embossed with the seal of La Grande Chartreuse. Its colour is entirely natural with no artificial flavours or preservatives. It, too, can be enjoyed neat or in a long drink.
Only two Chartreuse monks know the identity of the 130 plants, how to blend them and how to distill them into this world famous liqueur. They are also the only ones who know which plants they have to macerate to produce the natural green and yellow colours. And they alone supervise the slow ageing in oak casks.
Ingredients : alcohol, sugar, 130 plants and flowers.
Alcohol content : 43% (80° proof US)
How to drink it : To bring out all its flavour, it should be consumed very cold, even on the rocks. Traditionally considered an after dinner drink, Chartreuse is more and more being enjoyed as a long drink.

Barrell Whiskey Infinite Barrel Project

Barrell Whiskey Infinite Barrel Project...$59.99
Compare to $89.99 at Total Wine and More
Cask Strength - 63.61% ABV

The tradition of keeping an infinity bottle is well known to whiskey collectors and aficionados around the world. Take the last ounces of each whisk(e)y bottle as you finish it, and pour them into a bottle you’ve set aside. Barrell Craft Spirits is honoring the Infinity bottle tradition in our own way by introducing the Infinite Barrel Project.

THE INTENT OF THIS PROJECT is to create an ever-changing whiskey blended from barrels of mature whisk(e)y. We began by selecting barrels for their flavor contribution and complexity and blending them in a larger single, or "Infinite" vessel.
AT EACH BOTTLING we’ll remove a portion of that whiskey and replace it with other barrels that will complement the remaining blend. We'll then repeat the process - bottling a portion and adding newly selected whiskeys each time.

The Infinite Barrel contains fractions of many whiskey barrels in a single blend, while a solera ends up with fractions of the original whiskey in many barrels. Our objective is to create a unique blend for every bottling. The solera process, however, is designed to create a consistent product every time.

At its most basic, the solera process starts with a single barrel or group of barrels of a specific age. A fraction of the first group of barrels is put it in the second group of barrels, a fraction of that second group is put in the third group and so on. The solera process is designed and symmetrical. We think of our Infinite Barrel Project as a solera in reverse. It's unpredictable and asymmetrical, constantly evolving - even whimsical. We're certainly having fun blending it.

Barrell Craft Spirits 15 Year Old Cask Strength

Only 4 bottles left at this price
Barrell Craft Spirits Gray Label Cask Strength....only..$139.99
Compare to $269.99 at Total Wine and More
100.58 Proof

A blend of straight bourbon whiskeys matured in select cooperage
Distilled and aged in TN, KY and IN
Crafted and bottled in Kentucky
100.58 proof cask strength bottling

This release of Gray Label Bourbon is constructed from bourbons of varying ages made from five different mash bills. After marrying, the blend goes into casks made using 36-month air-dried staves that previously held Gray Label Bourbon, to rest and further mature.

Barrels made from 36-month air-dried staves are not often used in bourbon production, in part because they are much more expensive than casks made with kiln-dried staves. We view them, however, as a key component for achieving long, complex flavors and a rich mouth feel. The result of mingling in these unique casks is a mellow, sophisticated spirit that concentrates the flavor of a higher-proof bourbon into a lower-proof blend, with a gentle oxidative character and deep dried fruit notes. This is a bourbon with the complexity and density of age, without over-oaked chalkiness.

Barrell Bourbon Batch #032 Cask Strength

Barrell Bourbon Batch #032 Cask Strength.....$74.99
  • A blend of straight Bourbon Whiskeys
  • Distilled and aged in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana
  • Selection of 5, 6, 7, and 10-year-old barrels
  • Aged in American white oak barrels
  • Bottled in Kentucky
  • 115.34 proof cask strength bottling
Batch 032 began with a balance of two sets of barrels: a selection of 5 and 6-year-old barrels with a creamy and tropical profile and a selection of 6, 7 and 10-year-old barrels vatted for their complex, old, woody character. These two sets of barrels were slowly blended over three months. A small group of spice driven 7-year-old barrels with notes of cinnamon toast, coffee bean and chocolate were then carefully added to complete the blend. The result is a decadent and rich bourbon with layers of spice and nuttiness.

A lot of big reviews for this one!

  • Martha Stewart Living includes Batch 032 in The 6 Best Bourbons to Gift Dad This Father's Day: “For the Dad Who Marches to the Beat of His Own Drum”
  • Wine Enthusiast gives Barrell Batch 032 a rating of 95/100
  • Robb Report reviews Barrell Bourbon Batch 032, giving it a score of 96/100
  • InsideHook includes Barrell Bourbon Batch 032 as one of The Best New Whiskeys to Drink This May
  • Whiskey Apostle reviews Batch 032 calling it, “intense, complex, beautifully balanced and completely delicious.”
