"Our craft distillery is located in Caledonia County, Vermont and inspired by the views from atop the Barr Hill Nature Preserve. Caledonia Spirits was founded on a vision to support working landscapes and local agriculture by making Barr Hill craft spirits from regional raw materials."





Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Gin...$34.99
Compare to $38.49 at Total Wine and More

Barr Hill Gin is our ode to the hardworking bees of the Northeast. Each batch is distilled in our custom-built botanical extraction still. The juniper-forward botanicals are brought to a perfect balance by the floral depth of the raw honey. The results are distinctive and unparalleled. How do we extract such complexity from simple raw materials? Our secrets are kept in the hive.


Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Tom Cat Reserve Gin...$44.99
Compare to $45.99 at Total Wine and More
Tom Cat Gin is an expedition into uncharted territories. Once distilled, we age the gin in new American oak barrels in search of a bolder expression. The robust character of the new oak barrel mingles with the coniferous quality of the juniper, yielding an enticing aroma. A touch of raw honey leaves this revolutionary spirit remarkably approachable, whether drinking neat or in a cocktail. When the world called for whiskey, we answered resolutely with gin.

Evil Twin Brewing





Evil Twin Even More Jesus Imperial Stout...$4.99 / 16oz can
Evil Twin Even More Jesus Imperial Stout...$17.99 / 4pk 16oz Cans
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare



Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break...$14.99 / 4pk 16oz CANS
Imperial Stout with almonds, vanilla beans and coffee added.
"Italy has a certain “je ne sais quoi” – fab food culture, highly decadent history of art and cool countryside. Some might argue the people are loud and flamboyant, they steal our women, and their soccer players melodramatically flop on the pitch. Listen – that’s all part of the secret Italian ingredient – keep it cool, confident, arrogant and extravagant. Forza Italia!"

Ama Brewery Bat Sencha Pet Nat Tea




Ama Brewery Bat Sencha Pet Nat Tea...$49.99

  • 2.7% ABV
  • Kombucha
  • Product of Spain
  • Vegan
  • Gluten Free
Ama pét-nat tea is a new, lightly sparkling drink that’s low in alcohol but full of flavour, the result of fermenting carefully selected varieties of tea and herbal infusions. Due to its depth and complexity, BAT provides an ideal alternative drink for a variety of dining experiences.

Tasting notes Aromas of delicate herbs. Minerality, salinity, and umami with notes of seaweed appear in the mouth, with a very elegant silky texture.
A complex and harmonious drink, which is a clear expression of the land from which it comes, similar to a delicate sake. Silky on the palate. Long aftertaste. Fine bubble.

Tea Sencha Yabukita. Japan.

Origin Located in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, the Moriuchi Tea Garden was planted during the Edo period. It is the life work of the Moriuchi family who have passed their knowledge down from generation to generation. The steep gardens are cultivated organically to produce the finest, hand-picked sencha.

Water From the Alzola spring, Izarraitz Massif, in the Basque Country.

Elaboration Once in contact with cultures of bacteria and yeast, the infusions, prepared using spring water, begin to ferment. Both precision and balance are fundamental in the transformation of the kombucha. These factors, together with the continued evolution and aging in the bottle, are what allow Ama to become its own distinctive self.

Ageing Ama pét-nat tea is aged in the bottle for six months. It will continue to improve over time and can be aged for up to three years.

Master brewers Dani Lasa and Ramon Perisé.

Pairings Versatile and adaptable. Ideal for accompanying oily fish, oysters, clams and other shellfish.
When to drink Ideal both as an aperitif or by the bottle to accompany different types of cuisine or as a cocktail mixer.
Serve Preferably at 9–11ºC/48–52°F in a white wine glass. Handle and open carefully to preserve the bubbles. The sediment (the small particles of lees resulting from fermentation) present in each bottle can be served or kept in the bottle.
Storage Store in a cool, dry place.

Elysian Skalrok Nordic Style Pale Ale




Elysian Skalrok Nordic Style Pale Ale...$8.99 / 6pk

Behold Skålrok, the bearer of the mighty Kveik yeast!

This special yeast strain gives our Nordic Pale Ale a well-balanced flavor, and a citrus-forward aroma that is unforgettable. Just plunge into the mosh pit and see for yourself.

Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin...$43.99
Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin is as royal and spectacular in it’s lineage as the name suggests. A triple-distilled neutral grain spirit, re-distilled in a traditional copper pot still; the recipe handcrafted in a time-honoured way.
Derived from the ancient Indian knowledge of herbs; retaining the classic gin flavor of juniper berries, a refreshing twist has been added with hand-picked Indian botanicals. Of the 11 botanicals used in the distillation, 7 have been sourced from all four corners of India. The Coriander and Vetiver, a complex spice with intriguing peppery notes, are grown in the fields around Jaisalmer in Northern India. The sweet orange peel, which complements the citrus and floral tones of the gin, comes from Central India. Cubeb Berries and Lemon Grass from Southern India, Darjeeling Green Tea leaves from Eastern India and Lemon Peel from Western India. Other botanicals include angelica roots, liquorice and caraway seeds lending a spicy, slightly anise-tinged flavour to the gin. Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin is like an oasis in the desert, with an elegant refreshing finish that lingers long after.

2015 Accendo Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Bart and Daphne Araujo’s new project, following the incredible success and eventual sale of Araujo Estate


2015 Accendo Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon....$329.99
Produced from 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up profound wild blueberries, freshly crushed blackberries and chocolate-covered cherries scents with suggestions of Chinese five spice, Sichuan pepper, bay leaves and lavender plus a savory touch of yeast extract. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with expressive, multilayered blue and black fruits, all supported by ripe, fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long with a compelling earthiness coming through.
Rated 97+/100 The Wine Advocate


"Accendo Cellars is Bart and Daphne Araujo’s new project, following the incredible success and eventual sale of Araujo Estate, now known as Eisele Vineyard after the property’s jewel vineyard that dates back to the 1800s, which was purchased by Francois Pinault of Chateau Latour fame in 2013. So, what could the Araujo’s possibly do for a follow-up act to reestablishing one of Napa Valley’s most historic, iconic single vineyards? They decided to take inspiration from another era in Napa’s rich history—that of the mid-twentieth century, when blending wines from vineyards throughout the valley was the norm. The Araujos explained that Accendo Cellars is about getting back to “old style Napa,” somewhat in spite of global warming. They wanted to achieve wines of restraint and elegance by being able to bring in fruit earlier, but they also wanted to achieve all the layers and complexity possessed by the greatest wines of the world. They have thus far selected to work with several vineyards, including Sleeping Lady, Vine Hill Ranch and Oakville Ranch, to produce their first efforts. The blending process is overseen by none other than master-blender Michel Rolland. Bravo to the Araujos and Rolland for, in particular, superbly capturing the best of the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon vintage attributes so singularly and poignantly!" -- The Wine Advocate
