Goodwood Brewing - Walnut Brown Ale

Goodwood Brewing - Walnut Brown Ale...$9.99 / 6pk
    Subtle caramel and chocolate lead into a pleasantly nutty finish. Made with a recipe that dates back to 16th century England, this Ale will drive you totally walnuts.
6.1%ABV. 
    
    It started in 2005 in Louisville, Kentucky, with good wood. Goodwood purchased the Bluegrass Brewing Company and rebranded as Goodwood in 2015. Turns out Kentucky bourbon barrels create the perfect vessel for aging more than just bourbon. (Did you think it was something else?) We believe what’s good for bourbon is good for beer. Barrel aging beer creates bold flavors, creative new profiles and a higher ABV. Our extra steps are a kind of homage to Kentucky’s distilling legacy and to those old barrels out there that still have so much flavor left to give. Sip one of our freshly nuanced stouts, lagers or ales and we believe you’ll think so too.
   
     Since that initial release of touched-by-wood beers, we have expanded to crafting more than just bold barrel aged beers. (Though, if that’s what you’re looking for, we’ve still got those too.) Today, Goodwood Brewing and Spirits is dedicated to making the highest quality beers, barrel finished spirits and made from scratch food. Louisville’s Goodwood location is one of Kentucky’s longest operated breweries. Located in historic downtown Louisville, our old warehouse on main street is in good company of classic Kentucky industries.
    
    Goodwood Brewpubs are located in Central Kentucky and Indianapolis, Indiana. In addition to barrel aged beers, you’ll find a long list of rotating drafts from our talented brewers including favorites such as our honey ale, blackberry sour and hazy ipa. A full bar is available including craft cocktails that feature popular Kentucky spirits such as Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve and Wheatley Vodka. The kitchen provides southern staples like Chicken and Waffles, Fried Green Tomatoes and a brisket topped burger.

    Our mission is to be financially successful by delivering consistently outstanding service in an upbeat atmosphere. Our quality craft beers and spirits combined with our culinary driven, southern inspired food, will provide customers with confidence that we are the best choice for their dining experience. Cheers to good beer, good bourbon and good times!

Infinite Ale Works - West Floridian Quad...$14.99 / 4pk

    West Floridian Quad follows tradition by being a dark crimson ale that pours with a nice lingering head. The aroma is sweet with notes of dark fruits, such as plums, raisins and figs.

 Infinite Ale Works - Into the Dark Roast...$14.99 / 4pk

A rich coffee aroma eases the fear, and is followed by flavors of rich dark malts, mild chocolate notes, and the contributing blend of coffee flavors. This is an extremely complex beer brewed with numerous malts and loads of hops to ‘tame’ the rich malt character.

2018 Sette Ponti Crognolo Toscana






2018 Sette Ponti Crognolo Toscana...$19.98
Compare to $29.99 at Total Wine and More

Aromas of currants, flowers and orange blossom follow through to a full body with very fine tannins that are tight and polished. Beautiful length and polish. Better after 2021.
Rated 94/100 James Suckling
The Tenuta Sette Ponti 2018 Crognolo is mostly Sangiovese blended in with about 10% Merlot. This is a nicely balanced wine that offers the tangy freshness and acidity of the first grape ironed out and softened by that smaller percentage of the second. The wine is redolent of cherry, blackberry and plum. Its primary intensity is bright and cheerful. The finish shows pretty thickness, extraction and nicely integrated tannins.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Advocate
A beam of bright cherry permeates this round, supple red. Raspberry, earth, iron and tobacco notes play supporting roles, while dusty tannins prevail on the finish. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2032. 12,500 cases made, 4,000 cases imported
Rated 92/100 Wine Spectator

Roncier Vin de France Rouge...$13.99
Vin de France (read more about Vin de France below)
The red is blend of varietals and vintages, it’s a concept that goes back to the 60s when his father started blending southern Rhône with Burgundy grapes in order to make a good table wine at a great price while maintaining the same quality every year. It’s a blend of Pinot and Gamay from Burgundy along with Mourvedre and Grenache from the Rhône where he also owns a vineyard.

This wine, with a deep red robe, provides intense aromas of small ripe red and black berries. It is supple and mouth-watering on the palate, with soft tannins and fruity flavors. Drink now and over the next 6-7 years.
Wine and food pairing : Meats, couscous, grilled chicken cutlet with mustard, goat’s and sheep’s milk cheeses


Roncier Vin de France Blanc...$13.99
The Vin de France White was made to recreate a Burgundy style white at a very different price point obviously. The blend is Chardonnay, Aligoté with Colombard.
Magnificent clear pale golden appearance. We can find fresh bread, orange blossom, apricot and flower of the fields’ aromas develop in the nose. Wine is round and fat on the palate, with a pretty finish. Wine and food pairing: Tapas, grilled fishes and fishes in sauce.  Drink now and over then next 3-4 years




Roncier Vin de France Rose....$13.99
Blend of Gamay, Grenache, Cinsault
Grapes are harvested when it’s cooler, in fully ripe. Wine making : After destemming, berries are macerated during a few hours, and then are slowly pressed. Then, the derived pressed must is put into thermoregulated stainless steel vats, and fermentation will go on for 10 days or so. Once fermentation is over, wine is matured on lees before bottling.

This rosé wine shows a redcurrant colored robe with light reflections. It has very deep fruit aromas including cherry, raspberry and black berry. Well-structured on the palate, this wine is both nicely full-bodied and delightfully fruity. Wine and food pairing : bbq chicken skewers, paella, pizza and much more.



What is Vin de France?
"Vin de France has definitely come into its own since France established the category a decade ago. Global sales of wines classified as Vin de France (VDF) now average 340 million bottles annually—that’s 10 bottles sold every second. And an increasing number of VDF wines are being recognized by the trade as high-quality and medal-worthy

The concept—strikingly innovative at the time, allowing vintners to blend wines from different regions and new combinations of grape varieties—represented a fundamental shift for a country so tied to geographic classification for its wines.

The denomination was designed to free winemakers to create wines that compete with large international brands, and it has worked. Another goal was to streamline French wine, making the wines more accessible to consumers. That worked, too. Now, a decade after the designation was first established"  SevenFifty Daily

Amarula Cream Liqueur





AMARULA CREAM...$19.99
Compare to Total Wine and More price of $23.99
Made from the delicious Marula fruit of sub-Equatorial Africa, the Marula spirit is distilled and aged in French oak for two years. It is then blended with our velvety cream to create the smooth taste of Amarula - best savoured over ice, preferably with a view. On the wide-open plains of Africa grows a tree uncultivated by man. The marula tree, or ‘Sclerocarya Birrea’, only grows in one area on the entire planet – the warm, frost-free regions of subequatorial Africa. It holds a position of importance both in the animal kingdom and in human legend and ritual, and it is from the fruit of this mystical tree that Amarula cream is borne.
FROM FRUIT TO GLASS
Once the ripe marula fruit has been gathered, the stones are removed and the flesh is separated from the skin before it is fermented under conditions similar to winemaking. After fermentation, the marula wine is distilled, first in column stills and then in copper pot stills.
17% ABV

O’Shaughnessy Distilling Co. -- featuring Master Distiller Brian Nation!
If you do not know who Brian Nation is, he was the second master distiller at Midleton Irish Whiskey after Barry Crockett.  We worked with Barry Crockett starting in 1997 and took over as master distiller in 2013 until 2020.   He has become a living legend in the distilling world. 



BRIAN NATION–Master Distiller

After a long and storied career as the Master Distiller with Irish Distillers, the makers of Jameson, Redbreast, Midleton Very Rare, the Spot range (Yellow Spot, Green Spot, Blue and Red Spot) and Powers Irish Whiskey, he has joined the O’Shaughnessy Distilling family to embark on a new journey and explore new expressions of whiskey, marrying Irish and American Whiskey Traditions.

Meet Brian, our Master Distiller. He is an absolute legend in the world of Irish Whiskey and we couldn’t be more proud to call him a member of our family. Brian’s experience speaks for itself. For the last 7 years he was Master Distiller for some of the most renown and high quality Irish whiskeys in the world.

It is not just Brian’s taste for whiskey that brought him to Keeper’s Heart—Brian was captivated by the opportunity to bring his skills and family to America in order to explore new expressions in whiskey, bringing together two whiskey traditions to create something entirely new. We are thrilled he is part of the family.
