Old Elk Limited releases !

Whiskey Dave has gone mad -- he has these two bottles open today and tomorrow to taste at our Forsyth location!!!
(they taste fantastic FYI)
Two very limited releases from Old Elk, usually in the raffle, but we got extra 
Old Elk Bourbon Four Grain...$99.99
105.9 proof

QUADRUPLE THREAT | Breaking the mold by blending the goldThere are two ways to make a four-grain bourbon. The first is simply adding an extra grain to the standard mashbill, distilling and aging it as usual. Old Elk has chosen the more difficult path, making two bourbons—one with rye, one with wheat—and maturing them separately until each is at its individual peak. Married together in perfect proportions, they become what every blend aspires to be: greater than the sum of its parts, each component supporting the other to create a sophisticated four-grain bourbon whose elevated mix of flavors would otherwise be impossible.
In Old Elk Four Grain, our signature high-malt bourbon shares equal billing with our high-wheat bourbon. The fifty-fifty blend gives whiskey lovers a taste of all four grains, a rarity in the world of bourbon. Old Elk Four Grain takes your palate on a journey: from the oily richness of corn to the creamy sweetness of wheat and nutty chew of malt, generously dashed throughout with pops of rye spice, bright fruit, and plenty of rich, lush oak.
Bottling at 105.9 proof ensures that every sip of Old Elk Four Grain tastes as complex and rewarding as the first. Your palate will never get tired of exploring the interwoven flavors and nuanced character—there’s something new to discover each time you try it.

Old Elk Double Wheat Whiskey....$99.99
107.1 proof

TWO-FOLD THE TASTE | One for the wheat-freaks
A grain most whiskeys overlook, wheat imparts some of the finest flavors you can find in a glass—if it’s treated right. Old Elk has mastered the way of wheat already, celebrating its sweet softness and nutty round notes in our Wheated Bourbon Straight Bourbon Whiskey and Straight Wheat Whiskey. Now we’re building on those triumphs with a new wheat-forward whiskey: Old Elk Double Wheat.
Part of our Master’s Blend series, Old Elk Double Wheat takes whiskey where it’s never gone before. Master distiller Greg Metze has created a “mashbill within a mashbill,” seamlessly layering Old Elk’s 95% wheat whiskey with our wheated bourbon, for a final ratio of 71.5% wheat, 25% corn, and 3.5% malted barley. We can guarantee you’ve never tasted whiskey like this.
Despite the smooth texture and soft flavors that wheat imparts, this whiskey is no pushover. At a precise 107.1 proof, Old Elk Double Wheat shows its strength without overwhelming your palate. Multi-dimensional and more complex than the typical wheater, this whiskey will impress the most demanding drinkers while welcoming all curious newcomers.

Two Trees The Rizzuto Show Limited Edition Bourbon

The Rizzuto Show 105.7 the Point Collab!

Still 630 Fleur de Gin Hibiscus Gin


Still 630 Fleur de Gin Hibiscus Gin...$26.99 / 750ml
This gin was built explicitly to honor my amazing and wonderful wife: Sidni Weglarz. She designed this to be the gin she wanted to drink. It's got the prominent essence of hibiscus tea supported by juicy mango and orange notes, all layered over a solid foundation of juniper, coriander, and galangal root. A beautiful and dynamic gin to match the incredible woman who designed it!
For our 10th Anniversary, such a special gin is deserving of its own label design, so Sidni got to design her label from scratch and came up with this beautiful design.
Tasting Notes: Light and airy with sweet and tropical floral notes. A beautiful and balanced gin.

Drumshanbo Sausage Tree Pure Irish Vodka


Drumshanbo Sausage Tree Pure Irish Vodka...$26.99 / 750ml
Slow distilled with African Sausage Tree fruit, wild Irish nettle and pure Irish grain spirit.
ABV. 43%
The passion for exploration has taken the curious mind of PJ Rigney from Drumshanbo to all four corners of the world. His search for nature’s purest vodka has taken him through the African Serengeti and south across the equator where he came upon the majestic Kigelia africana, also known as a “Sausage Tree”.
As PJ contemplated the majestic plant, he recognised the innate kinship between it and the wild Irish nettle, found in the unspoiled woodlands of Drumshanbo, and also known for its curative and purifying powers. He brought them together at The Shed Distillery with Irish grain to distil nature’s purest tasting vodka.
SAUSAGE TREE – From Africa
Rigney’s inner maverick drove him through wildest Africa where he came upon the majestic Kigelia africana – “Sausage Tree” – known for its curative and purifying powers.
Although wild Irish nettles from Drumshanbo may sting, Rigney searched out their reputed powers of purification.

Sea Smoke!

We have you covered for Thanksgiving with Sea Smoke
2020 Sea Smoke ‘Southing’ Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills...$99.99

Only $89.98 when you order 6 bottles or more
Southing refers to the south-facing hillside bluffs found on our estate vineyard. Each year, our goal for this wine is to create the ideal marriage of complexity and elegance. Southing is a true expression of the terroir of Sea Smoke Vineyard: seductive flavors and fine tannins complimented by cool climate acidity.

2020 Sea Smoke ‘Ten’ Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills....$99.99
Only $89.98 when you order 6 bottles or more

Ten is named for the ten Pinot Noir clones found on our estate vineyard. Our most masculine wine, it is brooding and intense, with firm, mature tannins and a long, velvety finish. Ten is not for the faint-of-heart and has been known, on occasion, to convert even the most fanatic Cabernet lover.

2019 Chappellet Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

Very limited! We scored 18 more bottles!
2019 Chappellet Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon...$299.99

A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is another wonderfully evocative triumph from this family-owned Pitchard Hill pioneer. Deep garnet-purple colored, it storms out of the glass with profound scents of crème de cassis, blackberry preserves, licorice and mulberries, plus hints of unsmoked cigars, wild sage and tar. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers fantastic intensity and great poise, offering fine-grained, ripe tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.
Rated 99/100 The Wine Advocate
The flagship from this great estate is the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill, which checks in as a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. It has an incredible nose of pure blue fruits as well as flowers, crushed stone, fresh thyme, tobacco, and graphite. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and concentrated, it's nevertheless weightless and light on its feet, with wonderfully integrated acidity, polished tannins, and a great finish. This classic, quintessential Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and cruise for 20, 30, if not 40 years if stored correctly. 3800 cases.
Rated 98+/100 Jeb Dunnuck

  • The Sample Room Collection
  • Double Cask Finish
  • First Fill
For when only the very best will do. Silky, sweet, rich and intense… this whisky offers pure opulence in liquid form.
ABV : 40%
Using some of the rarest of our whiskies, all of which have been aged for at least 25 years, this is a batch-produced whisky finished in ex-sherry butts. Our team of experts individually select each cask and monitor the whisky in its finishing process to make sure the Oloroso-soaked wood adds the subtlest sherry tones to an intense, silky and elegant whisky. This molten amber liquid is nearly as splendid to hold in your hand as it is to drink. Afterwards, the finish is incredibly long, rich and balanced. But it’s the nose on the 25 Year Old that really drives whisky-lovers to distraction – with scents of bittersweet dark chocolate and plump, sweet sultana. This opulent whisky, the oldest expression in The Glenlivet’s core range, is a sublime choice to mark special occasions.

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale...$12.99 / 6pk bottles
A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin, brown sugar & spice
Every beer has a story, here's Punkin Ale...
A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. We brew our Punkin Ale with pumpkin meat, brown sugar and spices. As the season cools, this is the perfect beer to warm up with.

Punkin Ale is named after the seriously off-centered southern Delaware extravaganza Punkin Chunkin (check out some of these Discovery Channel videos of Punkin Chunkin, you gotta see it to believe it!). In fact, Punkin Ale made its debut as it claimed first prize in the 1994 Punkin Chunkin Recipe Contest. Yes, that was a full 6 months before we even opened our doors for business!

Since its debut, we've brewed Punkin Ale each and every fall. It is released right around Sept. 1 each year. When you find it, grab some extra because it's usually gone by Thanksgiving.
