Aged five years and bottled in bond, this bottling commemorates the 10th generation of Laird’s making apple spirits.

Perennial Abraxas Stout...$20.99 / 750ml
An American Imperial Stout brewed to accentuate the sweet chocolate character and aged on Kakao cacao nibs, vanilla beans, freshly ground cinnamon sticks and ancho chile peppers.

Perennial Prism Dry Hopped Saison Ekuanot Cryo + Cashmere...$10.99 / 4pk cans
Next up in the Prism series are 2 American grown varietals that aren’t classic with the style of Saison. Brewed with the same small but sturdy malt bill, and complemented with aromas of strawberry, bubblegum, all wrapped up with a kiss of bitterness at the finish. Drinking this beer reminds us of braiding sticks of Juicy Fruit and Fruit Stripes, those little strawberry candies your grandma had on her coffee table, and that time I saw War on Drugs in a cafeteria at SLU in 2011.

Perennial Black Walnut Dunkel Ale...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
This rich, malty Dunkelweiss is a perfect vehicle for the uniquely delicious character of Missouri black walnuts and it pairs seamlessly with all the things we love about fall — cooler weather, trees bursting with color, sweaters, and fire pits. 6.6%

Perennial Sunset Tai Chi IPA...$15.99 / 4pk cans
IPA with lactose, passion fruit, orange, guava and vanilla
Beer with way too much fruit, hops, lactose, and vanilla. All in all, exceedingly enjoyable. Reminiscent of Double Deuce house bands, pick-up football games on the beach, and shredding one more wave. This beer is a real searcher. 6.5%
Perennial Southside Blonde...$8.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Southside Blonde is a sessionable Belgian-Style Blonde Ale that is light-bodied and dry with a hint of fruitiness from the yeast. Southside is a friendly pairing with a variety of foods and an approachable choice for all types of beer

plus more online and in store

Bib & Tucker 6 Year Old Bourbon

Bib & Tucker 6 Year Old Bourbon...$44.99

#14 Whisky of the Year 2021 The Whisky Advocate

Batch #24
This Tennessee bourbon’s packaging has an old-school look and name (referring to dressing up, perhaps in your Sunday best), but in reality it’s rather new, first brought to market in 2014. Despite its lack of pedigree, at 6 years old this is lip-smacking whiskey, with a color of caramel, and an alluring aroma of sweet baking spices. There are bold, bracing tannins of cigar box and menthol that balance out the heavy sweetness of orange jam and long-stewed fruit. Intense, tasty, no-nonsense bourbon. —David Savona

“the six-year-aged bourbon has a nose of antiques, new saddle leather, chamomile- soaked butterscotch drops and warm cinnamon- kissed cedar.”

2017 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon....$59.99
Compare to $64.97 at Total Wine and More (not discountable)
We offer 10% off mix/match case price too!
Longtime winemaker Rob Davis' masterful balancing act scuppered Mother Nature in a vintage that delivered at least five major heat spikes, along with late-season fires. Luckily for Jordan, harvest was wrapped up by 6 October, well before the fires struck. The wine is impressively fresh, with ripe blackberry, lofty purple florals and sweet cedar aromas courtesy of ageing in 100% French oak. Fine-grained yet grippy tannins coat the full-bodied palate, packed with unctuous layers of blue and black fruits, tobacco, violets and graphite through a cocoa-dusted finish. A real standout from a challenging vintage.

Friday December 10th from 4:30pm-6:30pm

Noble Oak - Double Oak Bourbon..$31.99

A unique award winning bourbon with a worthy purpose. We at Noble Oak are fanatics about wood. That’s because 70% of a bourbon’s flavor comes from the wood. With Noble Oak, we elegantly marry two of the world’s most coveted types of oak used in whiskey making: American White Oak and Spanish Sherry Oak. We use time honored methods and our patented Compression Finishing™ process to create an unrivaled bourbon with body, deep color, and richness of flavor from some of the finest sherry oak staves. The result is a Great Bourbon with a Noble Heart. -- Noble Oak

Noble Oak Double Oak Rye $31.99
 A unique rye finished with port wine seasoned oak. First, we traditionally rest our whiskey in charred new American White Oak barrels for a minimum of one year, developing sweet vanilla notes and a deep caramel tone. Then, we finish our whiskey using either sherry or port wine cask staves to impart additional complexity. The result? Unique flavors that are elegantly balanced and bold. Noble Oak

It is part of The Soleo Collection: a range of five whiskies from Glenrothes, ranging from 10 to 25 years old, which pay homage to the grapes from which some sherries, such as Pedro Ximénez, are made.

Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur

Menjurje de Ancho Reyes Verde Chile Poblano Liqueur...$29.99
Menjurje de Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur...$29.99
In the cantinas and cabarets of Puebla's Barrio del Artista, passionate discurso is fueled by unique menjurjes—homemade concoctions created from a blend of native ingredients and local spirits.

One particularly popular menjurje created by the family Reyes was the only one made from Puebla's signature crop: the beloved ancho chile. Ancho Reyes is the original ancho chile liqueur—a smoky, heated celebración of the radical, the romantico, the independiente inside us all.  
Rancho Reyes is born from the sacred earth of Puebla, an original liquid as unique and independent as the ancho chile from which it is made.

Color: Deep bronze hue with medium body and high viscosity

Nose:  Slightly pungent, followed by dried chile notes, spices, cinnamon, cocoa, tamarind, and wet wood with light herbal notes adding to the complexity

Pleasantly sweet, followed by chile with moderate heat and slight acidity. Hints of spices, tamarind, plum, cacao, apple and almonds then subtle notes of fine herbs. A pleasantly lingering
pungent taste on the finish.

Pyrat Rum XO Reserve

Pyrat Rum XO Reserve....$32.99 / 750ml
Begin your dark rum sipping journey with Pyrat. A playful spirit with a hint of orange zest. Enjoy it on its own or mix it to create cocktails with exceptional depth.
Pyrat is an amber-hued blend of Caribbean rums aged up to 16 years and expertly crafted for richness and complexity. Our liquid features a burst of aromas that includes caramel, honey, molasses and orange peel with a palate that is delicate and smooth, almost sweet, with hints of fresh spices.

Hamilton Pimento Dram Liqueur

Hamilton Pimento Dram Liqueur...$26.99
Light green, Jamaican pot still rum with the flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and c-flavored rum distilled from fermented molasses.
A balanced blend of Jamaican rum, spice and sugar blended for tiki drinks, cooking or just sipping straight or a bit of tonic water and ice.Bottled at 30% alcohol by volume

Clear Creek Liqueurs

Clear Creek Cranberry Liqueur...$22.99 / 375ml
Many people don’t know that the southern Oregon coast is one of the major cranberry growing regions in the country. Our Cranberry Liqueur is made from cranberries grown in the cranberry bogs near Bandon and Port Orford. It was very important to us that we capture the natural tart and bitter character of the cranberry, without making it too sweet. This is one of our most versatile liqueurs. It’s a must have for the holiday season, as well as the ultimate addition to a fresh lime squeezed Margarita.

Clear Creek Loganberry Liqueur...$22.99 / 375ml
The Loganberry is a locally grown raspberry-blackberry hybrid, created by American lawyer and horticulturist James Harvey Logan. Clear Creek’s Loganberry Liqueur is made by macerating loganberries in our clear un-aged brandy. The nose is that of a juicy warm loganberry on the vine on a hot summer afternoon, the flavor is lightly sweetened ripe berry, and it finishes with a satisfying natural tartness of the berry. Our Loganberry Liqueur is a staff and customer favorite, and is terrific over vanilla ice cream, in champagne, or neat in a glass.

Clear Creek Raspberry Liqueur...$22.99 / 375ml
Our Raspberry Liqueur has the perfect balance of tart and sweet. Like our other liqueurs, it is made with our clear brandy and perfectly ripe locally grown fruit, resulting in an intensely jammy, aromatic, and distinctly raspberry liqueur. When you need an easy summer cocktail, nothing is tastier than a splash of Raspberry Liqueur in fresh lemonade. If you love raspberries, this is the liqueur for you.

Clear Creek Cassis Liqueur...$22.99 / 375ml
A wonderful Portland restaurant once suggested that we make a liqueur similar to what the French call “Crème de Cassis” from Oregon blackcurrants. Of course we had to do it, and the result is truly wonderful: an intensely tart, lightly sweet, slightly earthy liqueur with huge fruit flavor. Our blackcurrants come from a farm less than half an hour from the distillery. They arrive at the distillery still warm from the sun, with their woody little tops still attached, and are immediately dumped into our clear, un-aged brandy. After months of maceration, the solids are pressed off, and some sugar is added. Put a splash of Cassis Liqueur in your bubbly and you’re immediately transported to the Parisian cafes that made classic Kir and Kir Royale (cassis in white wine or champagne, respectively) so popular.

Clear Creek Cherry Liqueur...$22.99 / 375ml
Our Cherry Liqueur is made from dark, sweet table cherries from the cherry orchards surrounding The Dalles, Oregon, in the Columbia River Gorge. The sweet meat of the ripe cherries gives our liqueur the rich vanilla notes of a mouthful of cherries. A perfect addition to classic cocktails, especially the Singapore Sling.

2020 J Bouchon Pais Salvaje...$18.99
Never been touched by the human hand, these Pais vines grow wildly in the trees next to the vineyards. 100% organic, 100% dry-farmed, 100% wild.

Best Buy. Based in Mingre, southwest of Talca and halfway to the sea, Bouchon farms 120-year-old Pais vines in the traditional method, allowing them to grow wild, as vines do, climbing up into the trees at the edge of the vineyard. They make this wine as it would have been made 120 years ago, destemming the bunches by forcing them through the woven sticks of a zaranda, working over a cement vat where the grapes ferment without additions, aging the wine in cement and bottling it unfiltered. It's a long way to travel from Mingre to Massachusetts, so it was surprising how much life this wine sustained, impervious to the distance from home, continuing to morph and grow with each taste, starting green, with a hint of tomato leaf, turning cool, toward raspberries and the tannins of their seeds, slipping into silky grace as delicious fruit completes the structure of a grand cru of Chile 
Rated 95/100 Wine & Spirits Magazine

The aromatic, floral and delicate 2020 País Salvaje is pale and bright, with moderate alcohol and a superb palate with explosive flavors, all purity and nuance, quite harmonious and full of energy. It has moderate alcohol and great balance. Very tasty, super affordable and a great example of what the variety is capable of.

Freigeist is back and made at Urban Chestnut

Freigeist is back!
Brewed and canned right here in St. Louis!
Brewed and canned by Urban Chestnut Brewing for Ffreigeist Bierkultur

Freigeist Bierkultur:  The special label of Braustelle, a tiny decade-old brewery in Cologne run by Peter Esser and Sebastian Sauer. Esser -- the brew master -- uses the Freigeist label to create unusual beers, riffing on traditional beer styles to make something interesting and unique.

Freigeist Ottekolong Unfiltered Kolsch...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Ottekelong which in local parlance means, “water from Cologne,” is the basic beer from Freigeist. Based on the local Cologne specialty, Kölsch, Ottekolong is an unfiltered Kölsch-style beer, but with more IBUs than is typical for German Kölsch. Also, because it is unfiltered it isn’t technically legal to call in Kölsch in Germany.

Freigeist Abraxxxas Smoked Weisse Ale...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Esser named Abraxxxas after a character in one of his favorite novels. He says, “Abraxas contains both good and evil, like all human beings. No one is just good or just bad.” With that in mind, he created Abraxxxas, inspired by an old East German beer style called Lichtenhainer, which is a sour wheat beer brewed with smoked malt.

Freigeist Aufschneider Hoppy Hefeweizen Ale...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Generous additions of Cascade and Mosaic hops give this German-style hefeweizen ale its tropical, fruity notes and an extra burst of American-style bitterness.

Freigeist Geisterzug Rhubarb Gose...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Based on Freigeist’s ancient spruced Gose recipe, Geisterzug Quince & Geisterzug Rhubarb feature all the complexity, funkiness, and body of the of the original but go one step further by adding tart & flavorful real fruit & vegetable during fermentation. The resultant brews are incredibly lively, characterful, and thirst-quenching.
