Bespoken American Light Whiskey

American Light Whiskey is making a huge comeback....
Penelope made one, but it is super allocated and will be in our February raffle....we are excited to offer Bespoken American Light Whiskey

What is Light Whiskey?
By definition, light whiskey had to be distilled to at least 160 proof, though it was typically distilled as high as 190 proof, Bourbon, by contrast, usually enters the barrel in the 100- to 125-proof range and legally can never be distilled higher than 160 and aged in used or uncharred new oak containers, where Bourbon is aged in charred barrels





Bespoken Spirits American Light Whiskey...$25.99 / 375ml
50% ABV
Distilled at a higher proof, our American Light whiskey is lighter in color and harshness. The result is a spirit with a brilliant golden color and a smooth finish. On the nose, notes of butterscotch, marzipan, honey-infused mocha, and black tea dominate, with rich cinnamon sugar on the palate and a compelling finish of cacao nib and winter spices.

Starting with cedar and resin, scents of dried apricot and walnut soon follow on the nose. The entry is opulent for a 100-proof whiskey, with high-toned notes of orange peel covered in dark chocolate, black pepper, and apricot nectar. Cedar threads down a path laden with peach preserves and honeyed chamomile
Rated 93/100 The Tasting Panel

2020 Puro Pet'Ros Malbec






2020 Puro Pet'Ros Malbec...$22.99
This lovely sparkling pink wine comes from grapes grown on the 1st and 2nd terraces of hillsides in Lot Valley of the Cahors region of France. Harvested in the early morning to maintain freshness, they start fermenting in stainless, then are transferred to the bottle to finish their work and capture their bubbles.
The mid-weight wine offers gentle bubbles, watermelon and cranberry ale notes on both the nose and the palate, and ends with a bright finish.

Giesen Pure Light Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc







2018 Giesen Pure Light Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc...$10.99
25% lighter in alcohol
With all the great flavour of a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc but lighter in alcohol.  This bright, exciting wine offers refreshing citrus wrapped up with layers of tropical fruits. At 9.0% alc/vol this wine is 25% lighter in alcohol compared to our standard Giesen Sauvignon Blanc.  Sauvignon Blanc fruit is sourced from across the length and breadth of the Wairau Valley in Marlborough.  All vineyards have a stoney soil profile that allows drainage which helps with early flavour development in the fruit and are vineyards that typically have slower ripening because of cooler nights. This helps retain freshness and vibrancy in the fruit, but low in sugar content.
