Chateau Saint Pierre Cotes de Provence Rose

This one was hugely popular last year!
True Provence Rose!

2018 Chateau Saint Pierre Cotes de Provence Rose...$16.99
40% Grenache
60% Cinsault

Elegant pale color with traditional salmon-pink tints. Fresh fruit nose of white peaches with hints of spice evolving into aromas of apricot, guava, and exotic fruits. Full on the palate with good acidity - a crisp rich wine with flavors typical of the unique Chateau Saint-Pierre soil. Complex and balanced with a luscious long finish. Winemaking: The grapes are hand picked. The rosé wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation to bring out the earth aromas and develops the roundness and length on the palate. The wine is then kept in vats until bottled. Pairings: Fish & Shellfish, Pasta, Sushi, Asian, Pork, Pizza, Cheese & Crackers, Chicken & Turkey, and Salads.

Great Cotes du Rhone

2016 Fontaine du Clos Confidences Cotes du Rhone...$16.99
65% Grenache and 35% Syrah
"Spicy elements lurk within the medium-bodied palate. It's fresh and bright, with juicy raspberry acidity and a touch of salinity on the finish. A lighter style, with persistence and vibrancy. It is very nicely balanced and weighted, a highly drinkable wines. There's just a touch of ripe sweetness, but it works to bring balance to the whole."
Rated 90/100 Decanter Magazine

"I continue to be impressed by the wines from Fontaine du Clos, and while they never lack for texture or fruit, they always display plenty of classic southern Rhône character." -- Jeb Dunnuck

SW4 London Dry Gin 80 proof...$19.99
Great price, next lowest price online is $24.99
Distilled 5 times
Handmade in small batches
Unique recipe of 12 exceptional botanicals
SW4 London Distilled Gin, is a big, complex, and smooth dry gin made in the traditional London style, distilled and bottled in North Clapham, South London. SW4 has true London heritage and is handmade in using a unique botanical mix distilled through a single small pot still in Clapham North, South London. The method is highly crafted distillation – handmade in small batches according to a 300-year-old family tradition.
SW4 Gin is made with a unique recipe of 12 exceptional botanicals blended in a signature robust recipe, opening with strong Juniper aromas, subtle citrus, exotic spices, and delicate floral notes with hints of lemon peel and cassia. On the palate, SW4 is creamy, full, and complex with an extraordinarily smooth finish. SW4 London Dry Gin is made in one of a handful of distilleries still distilling and bottling on site in London – it’s truly an authentic London Dry Gin.

The Botanical recipe is what makes every gin unique. Since distillation of all ‘London’ gin demands alcohol of such purity that it is essentially flavourless and odourless, all the taste in gin must be derived from the number, type and amount of botanicals used.

‘Botanicals’ is just another term for the dried herbs, spices and other plant matter that can add flavour and/or aroma to gin. By law, gin must contain Juniper berries, and these must be the dominant component in the recipe - otherwise, it’s not gin. After that, pretty well anything goes, and this is where the skill and imagination of the gin maker come into play.

SW4 London Dry Gin uses 12 botanicals. The exact quantities are a closely guarded secret, but these are the ingredients we use. Click on the thumbnails to learn more:

Omnipollo Devin The Dude's Brew Pilsner

Omnipollo Devin The Dude's Brew Pilsner...$8.99 / 4pk 12oz
Inspirations for our beers come from everywhere. Sometimes it’s like the universe is telling us there needs to be a beer. It sounds pretentious and, in a way, it is… But with the release of this Omnipollo German style pilsner we are in the center of a vortex of incidences telling us that all we want to drink is a truly well-crafted pilsner.

My own pilsner journey started long ago, and pilsner is still my favorite style of beer, but it totally seems like the right time to celebrate this style. The signs are there. Like when your favorite rapper doesn’t enjoy the IPA you had planned to brew in his honor, saying “none of that fruity stuff”. Or the fact that for the last couple of years, all brewers at festivals will not be found drinking the latest hype brew, but instead gathering at the tap of whoever brought a classic pilsner.

A pils is sort of like your favorite t-shirt, you wear it often, but it is never a loud statement. So we raise our (pilsner) glass to you, and hope you will enjoy Devins German style pilsner and the rest of our pilsner journey. Be curious, be classic.

Basil Hayden's Caribbean Reserve Rye

Basil Hayden's Caribbean Reserve Rye...$39.99

To create  Basil Hayden's Caribbean Reserve Rye, the blending team took inspiration from the growing trend of cask finished ryes, and was particularly drawn to the sweet and spicy contrast between rum and rye.   They spent over a year aging rye in rum casks, but couldn't get the flavor quite right.  Finally they discovered that blending premium Black Strap rum directly into they rye created the perfect molasses-sweet they were looking for.  Basil Hayden's Caribbean Reserve Rye is a blend of 9 Year Kentucky Rye Whiskey ande 4 Year Canadian Rye Whisky.  This unique Rye Blend is finished with Black Strap Rum for a toasted oak flavor complemented with rye spice and molasses-rich sweetness
