GlenDronach Single Malt Scotch Kingsman Edition 1989 Vintage

3 bottles gone, only 1 left now!!

GlenDronach Single Malt Scotch Kingsman Edition 1989 Vintage...$1,299.99
29 Year Old

The GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1989 Vintage. Expertly crafted by Master Blender Dr. Rachel Barrie, in unique collaboration with Kingsman film franchise director Matthew Vaughn, to mark the upcoming release of The King’s Man.

The GlenDronach is revered for the dedication to exquisite sherry cask matured Single Malt since 1826. Like the Kingsman creed, our values have remained constant; impossible perfection built on unshakeable tradition. Matured in Oloroso sherry casks with a final maturation in Pedro Ximénez casks from Spain, this twenty-nine-year-old Single Malt is a masterful expression of exceptional complexity and depth, truly befitting a Kingsman.

This exceptional 1989 Vintage is inspired by the oldest bottle housed at The GlenDronach Distillery – a twenty-nine year-old whisky bottled in 1913, just before the outbreak of the first World War. Three friends had each purchased a bottle before leaving for war, vowing to open them together on their return. Tragically, only one of them returned home. Having never opened his bottle, his family later gifted it to the distillery, where it remains unopened and displayed in remembrance of fallen friends.

Only 3,052 bottles available worldwide from 1st September 2020. Each luxurious box is adorned with the iconic bespoke Kingsman insignia and bears the signatures of both Dr. Rachel Barrie and Matthew Vaughn.

"Lithe and delicately balanced, with vibrant lemon custard, blanched almond and steely citrus tones that take on richness and speed on the long finish."
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator
"Lively citrus flavors are nicely tempered by almond and bread-dough nuances in this elegant, well-balanced and rich-tasting wine. It offers more than fresh fruit, adding aged-on-the-lees complexity for a very tempting expression."

Amazing Grace - Spring Harvest Honey...$11.99 / 12oz
Amazing Grace - Summer Harvest Honey...$11.99 / 12oz

Local Raw Honey from LADUE, MO!
Spring and Summer Varieties!
This is as local as possible! Amazing Grace honey is from bee yards in Ladue, MO. Bees will forage about 2 miles in any direction, so if you live in that area, this honey likely contains nectar from your blossoms!

What does ‘raw’ mean? To preserve flavor and aroma, plus anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, Amazing Grace Honey is slightly warmed and then strained before bottling. That’s it!

Spring Harvest variety is extracted in early July. This honey is lighter in color and flavor due to the nectar and pollen sources available in the spring, such as clovers and flowering trees.

Summer Harvest variety is extracted in mid August, and includes sources from later-blossoming plants, such as milkweeds and goldenrods. Summer Harvest is darker and fuller-flavored.

Enjoy them both and compare! All raw honey will eventually crystallize. To re-liquefy, just place jar in warm water.
We hope that you enjoy Amazing Grace Honey. We have been keeping bees for over fifteen years in Ladue. Beekeeping is a fascinating combination of science and art. Art is skill that comes with experience. We believe that we are producing the finest honey possible, and we are always learning.

Amazing Grace Honey is operated by sixteen year old Peter Grace of Ladue.

The 2014 Red Blend checks in as a blend of 50% Malbec, 20% Petit Verdot, and 15% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that was aged 18 months in 70% new French oak. It offers a ripe, sexy bouquet of blackcurrants, smoked earth, tobacco and gamey meats. This gives way to a full-bodied, ripe, sexy wine that has sweet tannin and no hard edges on the palate, with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin, and oak. Drink it anytime over the coming 8-10 years.
Rated 93/100 Jeb Dunnuck

2018 Casas del Bosque Carmenere Reserva...$12.99

Just a delightful mouthful of dark berry compote, plum, sweet red cherry, smoky vanilla and toasty oak spice. Excellent value under $17. Aged in oak barrel for 10 months.

Great Cabernet Value from Argentina
2018 Almarada Uco Valley Cabernet Sauvignon...$13.99
We had such great success with Almarada's Malbec we very excited to find out that made a Cabernet. Once we tried it, we knew we had to have it in our stores. This Cabernet leans toward Bordeaux in style. Nose of blackberry, graphite and a touch of tobacco. Medium to full body with rich fruit on the pallet and some nice silky tannins on the finish.
Antonio Mas was born in Mendoza and holds a BA in Agronomy from Universidad Nacional de Cuyo. He has devoted his time to study every clone from the varieties he has cultivated and vinified and is one of the leading experts in his field. In 1992 he established the first Argentinean boutique winery: Finca La Anita. Antonio was inspired by the concept of French Choteau: vineyards of great genetic and variety purity, identifying clones of every variety, and growing grapes and vinify them near the same place where they were planted, from specific plots, true single vineyards. In 2010

2018 Almarada Malbec Uco Valley...$13.99
Very fresh but ripe fruit, diffusing black plums, black cherries and a touch of spice. There is a salty tang on the palate, paired with good fruit sweetness. Moderate length. Not a complex wine, but exudes drinkability. Drink now.
Rated 90/100 James Suckling

2016 Finca Beth • 2km Malbec Cabernet Franc...$23.99
Suggested retail is $35
65% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Franc.
Sustainable Non-Certified
Less than 600 cases bottled
Now that the range has grown, the name of the original wine has been extended from simply 2km to 2016 2km Malbec Cabernet Franc, a blend of 65% Malbec with 35% Cabernet Franc. The two grapes fermented together in concrete eggs. Part of the wine matured in 500-liter oak barrels and the rest in 225-liter barriques for some 14 months. The style, source and process have not changed since the initial 2013 vintage. There's something earthy, floral (violets) and notes of wild berries and herbs. The palate reveals the signature chalky tannins from the limestone-rich soils from Altamira and that special tastiness and mouthfeel. 6,500 bottles were filled in August 2017.
