Powers Irish Rye Whiskey

Powers Irish Rye Whiskey....$29.99
Bye, Bye, American Rye

Introducing a new way to enjoy rye whiskey – the POWERS way. With a satisfyingly long finish, a sensational spice and a seriously balanced sweetness, this is a rye you need to try.

POWERS IRISH RYE is born from careful experimentation. Tested in the 1800s and perfected in the 2020s, timeless takes time, and our 100% Irish Rye mash is no exception. Balancing the peppery taste of rye with the sweetness from seasoned American oak cask maturation, this new POWERS expression brings real character, from a country not short on character itself.

Becherovka Liqueur

Finally back in stock!!!

Becherovka Liqueur....$23.99
Original Czech Liqueur
Chance seems to stand at the head of many a great historical event. One such piece of luck brought the Imperial Count Plettenberg-Mietingen on a visit to Karlovy Vary in 1805, bringing with him an eccentric English doctor by the name of Frobrig. It must have been coincidence that the count and his personal physician Frobrig put up at the House of the Three Skylarks, which, by another piece of fortune, belonged to our Josef Becher, Karlovy-Vary pharmacist. Becher and the easily bored Dr Frobig soon became close friends united by a common passion: inventing blends of herbs, aromatic oils, and alcohol. Taking his leave of Karlovy Vary a while later, Dr Frobig gave his companion a piece of paper. 'This preoccupied me somewhat,' said the Englishman with the cool composure his fellow countrymen are famous for, before disappearing from Josef Becher's sight for all eternity. There was an inkling of something truly inspired in Frobrig's blend of herbs and alcohol, and over the next two years Josef Becher went on to spend all his spare moments experimenting with the secret recipe. Then, in 1807, Josef Becher started selling cordial drops at his pharmacy according to his own recipe. Initially, his liqueur bore the names Carlsbad English Bitter, Carlsbad Bitter, English Bitter, and even the German name Original Karlsbader Becherbitter. In short, Karlovy Vary Becherovka had seen the light of the world.

Rieslingfreak Polish Hill No.2 Riesling

2021 Rieslingfreak Polish Hill No.2 Riesling...$25.99
The Polish Hill River Riesling comes from a single block in the Polish Hill sub-region of the Clare Valley. John Hughes thinks this vineyard produces the best fruit of all his vineyard sources.Has some generous fruit with strident mineral notes, as well as pure lime. There’s flesh and weight to the palate. Quite fleshy and concentrated with zesty acidity. So drinkable now and will age well. Screw cap.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling
Bright, pale yellow colour, with a very attractive flowery bouquet: gardenia, dried flowers, perhaps boronia. The palate is intense and refined, crisp and linear, with lovely flowing harmony and length. Clean, soft but dry finish. A beautiful young riesling. Grapes from the Jaeschke family vineyard. Drink: 2021-2033

Ridge Zinfandels

2020 Ridge Pagani Ranch Zinfandel...$39.99
Potent and brooding, with deep black raspberry and currant flavors highlighted by spice box, green peppercorn and herbes de Provence notes that build toward broad-shouldered tannins. Needs time. Best from 2024 through 2032. 3,500 cases made.
Rated 92/100 Wine Spectator
Rated 93/100 Vinous Media
Rated 95/100 Zinfandel Chronicles

2019 Ridge East Bench Zinfandel...$31.99
Based on 100% Zinfandel, the 2019 Zinfandel East Bench has a great perfume of red plums, wild strawberries, and flowery incense, with just hints of cigar and dried orange peel emerging with time in the glass. While it's not a blockbuster, it brings gorgeous intensity and richness in a medium-bodied, weightless, elegant package that delivers ripe tannins and notable acidity.
Rated 95/100 Jeb Dunnuck
Fresh, almost pinot-like sensibility with the mouth feel. A beautifully spread wine that fills the palate, but maintains freshness and brightness. Real purity of fruit here. Lots of black and red cherry. Citrus undertones. 100% zinfandel. Drink now.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Enthusiast

2020 Ridge Three Valleys Sonoma County...$29.99
This focused, firm and tannic wine exudes black pepper and wood-smoke aromas followed by rather tight espresso, blueberry and cacao flavors. Made from 74% Zinfandel and other California heritage-grape varieties, it has the bones of a cool-climate wine and should improve through at least 2028.

Widmer's Cheese Cellars Wisconsin Mild Brick Cheese!

We get asked about Brick cheese all the time, apparently it is hard to find nowadays. We just brought one in from one or our favorite Wisconsin creameries, Widmer Cheese Cellars! $8.49/ 8oz

What is Brick Cheese?
They call brick cheese "the married man's limburger." It's strong enough to satisfy the serious cheese devotee, but mild enough to keep the spouse in the house. When young, brick cheese is deliciously mild. But given some time to ripen, it develops some serious pungency and tang.
The world can thank Wisconsin for this mini stinker. First crafted in the late 1800s and named for the bricks used to press the curds, brick cheese is derived from white American cheddar, but cultured at a higher temperature to produce more fat content and a different protein structure. The result: somewhat softer taste with a deliciously sharper finish.
Slice it for sandwiches, melt it with polenta, or dollop it on your pizza. Brick cheese adds tangy flavor and creamy texture to any dish.


Whistlepig 18 Year Single Barrel Double Malted Straight Rye Whiskey

We will get it online as soon as our website is fixed!

Whistlepig 18 Year Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey...$549.99 / 750ml
WhistlePig Double Malt Rye is our oldest Rye, patiently mellowed for 18 years. Before industrial distillation, America’s original farmers would malt a small portion of their grain to start fermentation, the essential step that turns water and rye into glorious whiskey. As a nod to the farmers, Double Malt Rye is crafted from a mash bill of Rye, Malted Rye and Malted Barley. History aside, these grains unite in a show-stopping Rye Whiskey that stretches far and wide across the flavor spectrum. Its base of 79% Rye delivers bold, peppery spice, while 15% Malted Rye adds soft, floral and earthy character. A final 6% of malted barley brings rich, sweet, toasted notes.
To take the expansive palate of WhistlePig Double Malt even further the 4th Edition is finished in Spanish PX Sherry Casks. At once bold, complex, delicate and elegant, WhistlePig 18 is the whiskey that your most memorable toasts require, and a gem on any bar.
Each annual edition of our Double Malt Rye is crowned with a bespoke glass topper, handmade in Vermont.

Malty sweetness up front with big cascade and glacier hops in the finish — a wonderfully drinkable IPA!
Did you know that this recipe, created by our head brewer Brian, was the first locally brewed IPA in the St Louis area?

Terra d'Oro Zinfandel Amador County

2019 Terra d'Oro Zinfandel Amador County...$13.99
