Benriach Single Malt Scotch Peated Cask Strength


Benriach Single Malt Scotch Peated Cask Strength....$99.99
  • Batch 2
  • 60% ABV
The malted barley used to make BenRiach Peated Cask Strength Batch 2 Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been smoked with Highland peat, enriching the whisky with notes of smoked apple wood. It has been bottled at its natural state, and at cask strength, so it can be experienced as if sampled at the source: straight from the cask. This multifaceted expression has matured in bourbon barrels and Oloroso sherry casks, before the whisky from these two woods is expertly blended together by our Master Blender, Rachel Barrie. Each cask type adds to the taste experience; with notes of butterscotch, Brazil nut toffee and pine resin, layered over bellowing peat embers.

Bastille - French Whisky


It is back!







Bastille 1789 Hand Crafted Whisky....$37.99 / 750ml
I hope you enjoy my very special whisky, which took me many years to perfect.  BASTILLE is hand-crafted in the South-West of France, the region where I was born and live.  I use a combination of traditional and cutting edge techniques to bring out the natural characteristics of the different varieties of wood cask, water and "terroir".  Here are a few highlights of my unique method for hand-crafting whisky (leaving out some of the secrets)  After the initial maturation, BASTILLE is finished in different styles of wooden cask which provide my whisky its delicate, harmonious and unique flavors.  BASTILLE uses pure Gensac spring water, filtered naturally for centuries through Grande Champagne limestone.  -- Master Distiller

But we do have some of the Merci 40th Anniversary available

In stock at all 5 locations now!!!!


Side Project Merci 40th Anniversary Edition...$30 / 750ml
Our goal with Merci 40th Anniversary Blend was to bring back characteristics of one of our favorite Merci blends - specifically blend #2 when we used the enhanced complexity of our funkier, more wild, wild ale base and then softened that with selected oak barrels of Oude Fermier. For the 40th Anniversary blend, with this concept in mind, we pulled together pieces that include a funky wild ale base from our Coexpressionalism-inspired stock, a puncheon which held Blended 2017 and a puncheon of Oude Fermier which was uncharacteristically more Brett-forward than we normally see. This lovely puncheon was beautiful and incredibly unique, and it provided the last attribute to the final blend for a beer that we anticipate will age as gracefully as Merci Blend #2.

Bitburger Festbier

 Forsyth got in a little more today!


Bitburger Festbier...$10.99 / 6pk 11.2oz bottles
A seasonal edition, available only in the US from August each year for a limited time: our Festbier – tasty, full-bodied and delicately malty-mild. Created by our brewmasters to enjoy the traditional German beer festival atmosphere. A very special malt composition, including Pilsner Malt, Münchner Malt and light Caramel Malt, accounts for its fine color and smooth body. Additionally, the beer is refined with Bitburger’s proprietary and unique hop blend called ‘Siegelhopfen’ (seal hops), which is sourced from a farm just a few minutes from the brewery. This drinkable 6.2% ABV full-bodied beer is the perfect marriage of hops and malt with a slightly sweet backbone, while finishing dry.
Taste
Festbier has a clear amber color that reminds one of the first days of autumn. It pours with an inviting, foamy white head. An intriguing spicy aroma-mix of slightly roasted bread and fruit cake with hints of caramel. A crisp and full-bodied mouthfeel brings out a variety of malty flavors like roasted nuts and bread with a well-balanced sweetness of raisins and dried fruits. It finishes with a light, yet lingering bitterness that is not overwhelming and plays well with the perceptible higher alcohol. A true example of the style that will pair perfectly with roasted turkey, strong cheese or grilled sausage.

Friday Tasting at Spirit Wine and Craft with North Shore Distillery

 

TASTING!
Friday September 23rd from 4pm-6pm
At Spirit Wine and Craft
5760 Chippewa St. 

What we will be pouring...

North Shore Twisted Citrus Vodka...$29.99 / 750ml
Simply put, this is the best citrus vodka you’ll ever taste, if we do say so ourselves. Brand new as of December 2020, this is an update to our late, great Sol Chamomile Citrus as part of our 2020 rebranding and packaging updates. We worked on these updates for almost all of 2020, and are thrilled with the outcome. Twisted Citrus has bright, fresh, authentic citrus flavors from the fresh oranges, lemons and limes we infuse and distill into the spirit.
Tasting Notes:Sunshine in a glass, with bright, fresh citrus notes – it’s delicious for sipping, and also for mixing
Layers of fresh orange, lemon and lime in a crisp, smooth spirit
Production Notes:Starting from a base of our North Shore Vodka, Twisted Citrus is infused and distilled with real, fresh citrus fruit peels; we use oranges, lemons and limes, achieving a round, versatile citrus profile with accents of each type of fruit
This spirit is made in small batches by hand – the citrus fruits are washed and peeled by hand as well, to ensure we get use only the best parts of the fruits
We use no additives or flavorings of any kind – it’s just pure, delicious vodka infused and distilled with fresh citrus fruit
North Shore Twisted Citrus Vodka is 40% alcohol by volume (80 proof)

North Shore Gin No. 6...$32.99 /  750ml
Our flagship spirit, and possibly our most famous one, too. It has won many awards and acclaim and is loved around the globe, despite being from a tiny family-run distillery.
Tasting Notes:Unlike any other gin on the market, North Shore No. 6 has a nuanced, complex aroma and flavor, with balanced juniper, citrus, spice and floral notes, with a long, smooth finish
No. 6 has won a wide range of awards and significant critical acclaim – here are a few of our favorites mentions:“Clear color. Spicy aromas and flavors of nutmeg and pepper muffin, honeyed juniper berries, seared polenta with candied lemon zest, and fennel chutney with a velvety, vibrant, fruity medium-full body and a warming, subtle, long finish with notes of cardamom honey cream, spice cake, and exotic peppercorns and coriander. A powerfully delicious gin with captivatingly fresh, 3-D flavors; impressive!” – Beverage Testing Institute, awarding a Gold Medal, Spring 2022
“Of course, juniper is the dominant flavor, but it quickly gives way to a cascade of subtle flavors that make No. 6 the jewel of a refined martini, yet also very pleasing neat” – Chicago Tribune
“A modern-style gin … smooth and refined” – New York Times
“This unique gin kept surprising my palate with each sip, ending with a beautifully developed peppery finish” – Hal Wolin, a NYC-based bartender, on his blog A Muddled Thought
Production Notes: We hand prepare a range of herbs and botanicals for each batch of gin, including juniper berries (of course), hand-grated fresh lemon peel, rich spices like cardamom and cinnamon, and delicate floral accents
We infuse the botanicals into our base spirit for varying lengths of time depending on their particular characteristics, and then distill them through Ethel the Still using a slow, meticulous process that enables us to create fresh, bright flavors
Distiller’s Gin No. 6 is 47% alcohol by volume (94 proof)
North Shore Sirene Absinthe Verte...$59.99 / 750ml
Tasting Notes:Sirène has a beautiful, nuanced aroma and flavor. On first taste (after diluting with water of course), you’ll notice the classical absinthe trinity of herbs – anise seed, fennel and grand wormwood. As you continue to sip, additional flavors come forward, including floral, citrus, minty and bitter notes.
Your tongue will tingle and be engulfed in a sea of herbal intensity, in the best possible way.
“[B]eautiful, both in the Art Nouveau-inspired bottle as well as in the glass, where it louches to opalescent yellow-green. The aroma is particularly citrusy, evoking juicy Key lime mixed with fennel. It’s super-light on the palate, with most of the anise coming forward on the finish. Mix into an absinthe frappe.” – Wine Enthusiast
Production Notes:We modeled Sirène after some of our favorite absinthes from past trips to Europe and generous sharing by absinthe aficionado friends – rich, yet approachable, balanced in flavors and delicious both in a traditional absinthe preparation as well as in a range of cocktails.
We infuse 18 different herbs to create the rich, complex layers of flavor in Sirène – we don’t share much of the details, but it is a labor-intensive, time-intensive process. And we love how the distillery smells when we’re making it, even if the aromas take over the place for a few hours.
Sirène Absinthe Verte is 60% alcohol by volume (120 proof)

Daou Chardonnay Paso Robles


2021 Daou Chardonnay Paso Robles...$17.99
Compare to $22 at the Winery
There's a guava character to the nose of this bottling, yet it's cut by a river stone edge. A bright sizzle of acidity and a chalky flesh envelop the palate, with plumeria and more guava flavors at play.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Enthusiast

Equilibrium Brewing

In stock now at Forsyth and Spirit Wine and Craft




Equilibrium Wavelength IPA....$15.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Wavelength is back! (6.5 % ABV IPA).
A wavelength is the distance between identical points in the adjacent cycles of a waveform signal propagated in space and describes the flow of Photons. We started with oats and white wheat for a base before adding Simcoe and Mosaic to the whirlpool. To get some berry medley notes going we dry hopped with Mosaic and Citra at a 2:1 ratio. Wavelength pours bright yellow with aromas of citrus and stone fruit with crushable flavors of mango and berry with a light refreshing finish.


Equilibrium / Weldwerks Brewing Tera Bitrate Fluctuation DIPA...$19.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
A terabit is a measurement of 1 trillion bits or pieces of binary data. It represents a shift from the prefix “giga” or billion with the prefix “tera” or trillion. In our case, it’s a perfect unit of measurement to represent the scaled up hop levels from our first collab our friends from Weldwerks and introduce our newest one, Tera Bitrate Fluctuation (DIPA).
Tera Bitrate Fluctuation amps up the hop bill to near extreme levels. Using the same base with an adjusted hop schedule, Citra Incognito, Citra T-90’s, and Idaho7 was added to the whirlpool with a huge dry hop of Strata, Citra, Galaxy, and Bru-1. Tera Bitrate Fluctuation pours with aromas of pineapple chunks, mango, and lime with juicy flavors of pineapples in syrup, ripe mango, lime gummy wedges, fruit punch box drink, and a touch of Anjou pear. Despite the amount of hops, this beer is extremely bright and crushable with a pulpy mouth feel and a dank lime custard note and our #EQjuice finish.
