Paul John "Mithuna" Indian Single Malt Whisky...$259.99
Compare to $299.99 at Total Wine and More
ABV 58%
Mithuna by Paul John, of the Paul John Zodiac series, is named after the Indian counterpart of the 3rd Zodiac sign Gemini.  Unpeated. Non chill-filtered. Matured in American virgin oak casks and finished in ex-bourbon casks.
Hues of old oak and sophisticated aromas of liquorice with gentle beeswax lead to a luxuriant delivery of ulmo honey on crisp toast, and tender notes of vanilla. Chewy flavours of coffee mocha, orange peel and delicate spice float on active tannins while gentle oils enjoy gists of dark cocoa tones. The finish is gratifyingly long and complex with multi-toned sugars and delicate honeys.
Renowned for contradictive strengths, the characteristics of Gemini are epitomized by this Indian single malt as mesmerizing layers of austere, dry tannins are challenged in equal measure by resplendent sugars and mocha on delicate oils.

Paul John Whisky’s soon to be launched Mithuna by Paul John has been declared the 3rd Finest Whisky in the World by esteemed whisky reviewer Jim Murray in his acclaimed “Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2021.”
Mithuna by Paul John scored a 97 and has also been awarded Asian Whisky of the Year 2021, while its predecessor in the Zodiac series, Kanya by Paul John, was named Asian Whisky of the Year in the 2018 edition of “Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible” with a score of 96.

Mr Black is a bittersweet Blend of specialty Arabica coffee and Australian wheat vodka. Each and every bottle is handmade at our coffee roastery and distillery just north of Sydney. Our roasters source top-grade beans from the best-growing regions, and use a “low-and-slow” cold brew process to create a complex liquor that is bold, balanced, and unapologetically coffee.
Product Features: - Roasted & distilled in Australia. - 100% specialty Arabica coffee - Cold brewed to preserve the complex flavor of our coffee - Pure vodka base to let the coffee shine. - Ten-time the coffee. Half the Sugar - Nothing artificial. No fake flavors.
Tasting Notes: Fresh Coffee, Carmel, Cacao, Not so sweet Brand Story: "The story of Mr Black starts in 2013 with a chance meeting between Philip Moore, one of Australia’s foremost distillers, and Tom Baker, coffee-nerd and designer. “Holy f**k, this is delicious”, Tom exclaimed after taking a swig of Philip’s coffee liqueur, “every bar world needs a bottle of this”. Together, they founded Mr Black Roasters & Distillers with a simple mission: take Australia’s coffee culture into the night. . Producing consistently concentrated cold brew and fine-tuning water composition, temperature and time are lifelong obsessions for both our head of coffee, Detlef Mohr, and Master Distiller, Philip Moore. The difference between something good and something great, after all, comes down to the details."

Citadelle Gin 25th Anniversary Juniper Decadence and Vive Le Cornichon!

Citadelle Gin 25th Anniversary Juniper Decadence ...$32.99 
We’re celebrating our 25th anniversary with an exquisite new limited edition. Citadelle Gin Juniper Décadence is a homage to the juniper trees that grow naturally in the Charentes terroir, and that we cultivate in front of the Château de Bonbonnet.
It’s an ode to the historical practice of ageing gin in wood. We innovate on this theme by maturing our signature recipe with its 19 botanicals in small juniper wood barrels for a month. The smokiness of the wood amplifies the fresh, herbal notes of Citadelle Original. For a flavor worthy of our 25th anniversary, we custom designed these barrels with a conical shape and 100L capacity. Citadelle Juniper Décadence is a toast to the pioneer of French gin since 1996!

Citadelle Gin Vive Le Cornichon!...$32.99
This new edition stars the small but mighty cornichon pickle, a true symbol of France. Oui, you read that right, the pickle! But not just any gherkin will do… the cornichons infused in Citadelle Original’s aromatic base come from Maison Marc, well known to foodies and fans of French terroirs. This Burgundy-based family business grows its Cucumis sativus without insecticides, herbicides or preservatives, and picks every one by hand.
With this unprecedented creation, Alexandre Gabriel and his teams once again push the boundaries of experimentation. His mantra “Impossible is not Ferrand” has never rung so true. And believe us, Citadelle Vive le Cornichon gin will surprise and delight you!

2020 Chateau de Lancyere Coste d’Aleyrac Pic Saint Loup....$19.99
Pic Saint-Loup AOP
50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 10% Carignan.
The best version of this cuvée I can recall tasting, the 2020 Pic Saint Loup Coste d'Aleyrac is a softer, lusher, more generous wine than past (or succeeding) vintages, loaded with blackberry and black cherry fruit. Full, rich, velvety and long, it's a terrific value. As usual, it's an unoaked blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Carignan.

Ocean Organic Vodka

From Maui, Hawaii
Ocean Organic Vodka...$23.99 / 750ml
Compare to $26.99 at Total wine and more

Aloha and Welcome to Ocean Vodka! Here on the beautiful island of Maui in the Hawaiian Islands, our family is passionate about producing the BEST handcrafted vodka in the world for you and the environment; crisp, natural, clean and thoroughly enjoyable. Our spirit of aloha, represented by positive energy and harmonious living, supports our favorite saying…life’s a beach, so enjoy a cocktail!

A pristine taste developed from the purest ingredients, Ocean Vodka serves as an excellent choice for martinis and fine cocktails as well as straight up or “on-the-rocks” enjoyment.
Ocean Vodka is certified 100% USDA organic and is the only vodka in the world distilled from organic sugar cane and blended with deep ocean mineral water. As a result Ocean Vodka is naturally gluten-free – perfect for those intolerant of gluten in their diet. Our fine spirit contains absolutely no GMOs (genetically modified organisms), herbicides, or pesticides all of which ensure the cleanest, purest, most refreshing martini experience.

Handcrafted on the beautiful island of Maui, Ocean Vodka is the only spirit in the world made with deep ocean mineral water. The high mineral content of our water imparts a unique character to our vodka and adds great depth of flavor to the traditional vodka cocktail.

All 80 proof vodkas are comprised of 60% water, so the quality of the water source dramatically influences the quality of the vodka. Our Hawaii deep ocean mineral water originated as Greenland glacier melt over 2,000 years ago, traveling gradually around the globe through deep ocean currents until arriving in Hawaii.

Our water is then sourced from 3,000 feet below the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, where it is ice-cold, deeply pure, and full of naturally occurring minerals. Once our water is brought to the surface on the Kona coast, it is organically purified and desalinated through a proprietary, natural filtration process that removes sodium while retaining rich minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium.

Exciting new 2020 Cabernet

Aged in 75% French Oak and 25% American Oak for 10 months
Bound Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium body Cabernet with great fruit flavors and smooth structured tannins. It has aromas of black cherry, Cassis berries, plum, slight blueberry, vanilla, oak and chocolate. It is a fruit forward wine with lush flavors, nice balance and a long silky finish.

Jeb Dunnuck on 2019 Sonoma Wines
"In a nutshell, 2019 is another strong vintage that fits nicely alongside the trilogy of 2016, 2017, and 2018 in terms of quality....the vintage is a buyer’s paradise, offering beautiful wines from all appellations and at just about every price point. The reality is that you will have to work to find a bad wine from Sonoma these days" -- Jeb Dunnuck
2019 Bench Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County...$22.99
Suggested retail is $24

Deep purple in color and aromatically expressive with ripe, black plum currant coulis and minerally graphite. The structure is firm with soft, elegant tannins and mouth-watering acidity. Flavors of black forest fruit and earth, dark cocoa, mint and anise are meld together on the finish. Bench Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced exclusively from benchland vineyards in Sonoma County, where valley floor transitions to foothills. I prefer these vineyard sites as they produce concentrated and intense fruit that results in an elegantly balanced wine with depth, beauty and complexity.

12 Months in 60% new oak
The new vintage arrived and it is amazing!!!
2019 Acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford-Napa, CA. $34.99

This wine is rich with Crème de cassis, spice box and blueberry on the nose. Flavors of rich blackberry, plum and kirsch liqueur are followed by an everlasting finish that showcases the rich and complex tannic structure that has made the region so beloved by Cabernet enthusiasts. -- TWCP
