Ommegang / New Belgium Essence Triple Ale

 



Back in stock!
Ommegang / New Belgium Essence Triple Ale...$14.99 / 4pk
BELGIAN-STYLE TRIPEL ALE
Belgian Essence is the result of months of collaboration between two friends. This small-batch Belgian-style Tripel is a golden and brightly effervescent ale with a deceptively light body. Brewed with three simple hand-selected malts to provide a crisp, smooth and highly carbonated brew. Similar to our roots, the first hop addition is a traditional old-world style hop. The finish hops bring forth a new world twist, resulting in a fresh bright citrus finish. A fine full carbonation produces a bright white foamy cap atop the sparkling full-bodied brew.
8.4 ABV

Glenmorangie 12 Year Old Palo Cortado



Glenmorangie 12 Year Old Palo Cortado...$79.99
This deeply sweet and nutty small-batch release is the first Glenmorangie ever to be finished in rare Palo Cortado sherry casks. Aged for 12 years, it brings a new elegance to the Highland Distillery’s delicate style.
The single malt spent its first eight years mellowing in American white oak bourbon casks. Then, delighted by that whisky’s smooth, soft character, Dr Bill was inspired to finish a select batch in Palo Cortado casks, never before used at Glenmorangie.
Palo Cortado is the rarest variety of sherry, created purely by chance, when the protective ‘flor’ yeast does not form on sherry intended to become Amontillado.
Enchanted by Palo Cortado’s sweet and nutty flavours, Dr Bill sourced a handful of its casks, which are incredibly hard to come by. He filled them with the whisky, imagining the unparalleled depth and complexity they might bring Glenmorangie. Finished in these deliciously wonderful casks, Dr Bill’s creation developed all the rich elegance he had dreamed of.
Uniquely complex and nutty, it layers dark plum depths with milk-chocolate richness, Brazil nuts and sweet spice.

Super Tuscan - Ready to Drink - 2016 Monteti IGT

This is a fantastic red blend from Maremma, a sub-region of Tuscany less than two miles from the Tyrrhenian Sea, and is made from three Bordeaux varietals. I had the pleasure of visiting Tenuta Monteti and tasting this wine with the winery owner, Javier, when I was in Italy in May. Monteti meticulously crafts their wines in a way that would make you think the bottles cost hundreds of dollars, but thankfully you can grab this gem for $30! - Chris




2016 Tenuta Monteti...$29.99 on sale! (reg. price $39.99)
Monteti is our flagship wine. It is named like the estate after the hill that protects our vineyard from the strong Mediterranean winds guaranteeing an ideal microclimate thanks to which our vines can benefit, protected, from sea proximity.
It is a blend of Petit Verdot (with percentages varying depending on the vintage from 40 to 55%), Cabernet Franc (between 30 and 25%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (between 15 and 20%).
It matures for 18 months in medium-toasted French oak barriques, 70% of which are new. This is followed by further 2 years of bottle ageing before being released onto the market.

With Monteti we seek the personality of the Maremman territory subjected however to the complexity and elegance of a great wine. Petit Verdot is the personality, the rebel horse, Cabernet Sauvignon conveys structure and longevity and Cabernet Franc is the feminine element that embraces and softens both.

Savyll N/A Canned Cocktails...$3.29/250ml 

Savyll was started by self-proclaimed “dinner party mixologist” Avnish Babla. He has always loved to entertain friends and family, and to experiment with new, innovative cocktail ideas.

A career in the corporate world meant alcohol was ever-present; team events, client meetings, holiday parties – alcohol was hard to avoid.

When he became an expectant father, he and his wife vowed to live healthier lifestyles, which included moderating alcohol.

However, he soon discovered the challenges of moderation given the limited choice of mature, complex non-alcoholic drinks on the market.

Avnish felt removed from the world of the sophisticated alcoholic drinks that he loved. In response, he turned his passion for mixing cocktails into a mission to reinvent their alcohol-free namesakes.

After a year of experimenting in his kitchen, followed by another year of meticulous product development with the support of an award-winning beverage developer, Avnish crafted a range of natural, alcohol-free, ready-to-serve cocktails.– and the Savyll Beverage Company was born.

___________

At Savyll, we believe drinks have the power to bring people together, but they don’t need to have alcohol to do so.

Born in London, the world’s cultural melting pot, we set out to create a line of drinks to change the preconceptions of what occasion-based, non-drinking looks like

From a Bellini to a Mojito, or a Moscow Mule to a Paloma, Savyll brings the sophisticated flavours of the finest cocktails to more people on more occasions - all alcohol free. -website info

Bellini: A uniquely crafted non-alcoholic bubbly cocktail composed of a mix of dry prosecco essence, aromatic bitters, and sweet peach flavor.

Mojito: Mojito non-alcoholic cocktail crafted with a balance of white rum and mint and refreshing lime.

Paloma: This Paloma is a refined non-alcoholic cocktail, crafted with bittersweet pink grapefruit notes, zesty tequila essence and lime.

Moscow Mule: This Fiery Moscow Mule non-alcoholic cocktail has been crafted with a delicate balance of premium vodka, ginger, mint, and lime.
