Shakmat 23 Year Old Armenian Brandy




Shakmat 23 Year Old Armenian Brandy...$89.99
3,500 bottles made
Armenia has excellent conditions for the production of a brandy’s most important ingredient: grapes. The local brandy only utilizes indigenous grape varieties and there are over 200 grown there. For Shakmat, we used the following grape varieties: Kangun, Kakhet, Garan Dmak and Rkatsiteli.
Shakmat is a 23 Year Old Brandy, aged in barrels made of local Caucasian oak. The terroir (both for grapes and oak barrels) is what gives it its distinctive flavor profile.
Shakmat offers an abundance of exciting flavors including dried fruits (plums, raisins), walnuts, cloves, tobacco, molasses, vanilla, oak, and a bit of black pepper. It takes a well-known and loved flavor profile and elevates it.


THE GAME OF SHAKMAT
Shakmat (or shakhmat) is the Armenian word for chess. But our Shakmat is so much more than a game. It is a symbol. A symbol of life, persistence, patience, and wisdom of a people that do not fall, even when held in check.
Shakmat 23 Year Old is a premium brandy originating from the birthplace of winemaking. It is an embodiment of Armenia’s two national treasures – Chess and Konyak.
The time has come for Armenian brandy to reclaim its rightful place on the World Spirits map. A hidden gem of flavor and tradition, its recognition is long overdue.

Frivolity ensues at 4pm…be there-ish or square-ish.
Bold Gin
Full-bodied and robust, our Bold Gin is beautifully intricate and multi-dimensional. Balanced traditional and vapor distillation of 17 botanicals produce a gin that’s unlike any other. Lightly sweet notes of lavender of rose hips complement its dark fruit flavor, layered with aromatics and zest.
Bright Gin
Our Bright Gin is a crisp, easy-sipping spirit that appeals to both gin newcomers and aficionados. It has a beautiful floral aroma with a sweet, balanced flavor and sophisticated mouthfeel. Botanicals: fresh orange zest, hibiscus, chamomile, sweet almond, coriander, juniper, angelica root, cassia, orris root, green cardamom pods and a hint of elderberry
Madeira Cask Aged Rye
After aging a minimum of 3 years in white oak barrels, it’s re-barreled into Madeira casks to finish for an additional 3 to 6 months—this is when the magic happens. The whiskey mingles with the Madeira cask to incorporate its nuances and complexity, giving the whiskey its signature flavor and aroma.
Absinthe Verte
Uniquely steeped in the tradition and history of 19th century Parisian culture, our Absinthe is a lavish and delicate delight. Made with wormwood, anise, and fennel seed, Absinthe Verte is the first-ever distilled in Kansas City.Tasting Notes: Sweet and herbaceous, our Absinthe Verte absolutely blooms with notes of licorice, mint, chamomile, and anise.

97 point Chardonnay for $40



Stunning wine for this price!
2021 Tan Fruit Chardonnay Cuvee Tan Fruit...$39.99
The 2021 Chardonnay Cuvée Tan Fruit comes from Dijon vines in the Maresh Vineyard, planted on a south-facing slope in 1991, plus a number of other sources around Willamette Valley. Bottled a few months earlier than the other Tan Fruit Chardonnays, its savory aromas explode from the glass: a core of peachy fruit is streaked with touches of candle smoke, matchstick, pie crust and floral tones. Medium-bodied, seamless and satiny, it flows effortlessly through the mouth with both depth of flavor and freshness. It has a pleasing touch of grip to anchor the long finish and feels like it has more to give as it unwinds in bottle over the next several years. Around 1,000 cases were made.

Almost Perfect!!!
2021 Bethel Heights Casteel Pinot Noir ...$74.99
The 2021 Pinot Noir Casteel comes from vines on the western side of the property, planted in 1992, 1996 and 1997. It's expressive and dynamic, offering surprising depth of flavor for its elegant frame. Medium ruby, it has layered scents of pomegranate, rhubarb and red cherry with accents of garrigue, aniseed, mossy bark and tea leaves. The medium-bodied palate is highly concentrated, its deep well of fruit streaked with touches of iron-like mineral character. It has powerful yet finely grained tannins and bursts of mouthwatering acidity that call you in again for another sip on the very long finish. This thrilling Pinot Noir offers just about everything you could want from this grape: alluring perfume, complex layers of spice and earth, harmonious structure and fantastic length.

Best Vodkas For Every Home Bar
—Food and Wine Magazine

From Maui, Hawaii
Ocean Organic Vodka

“Distilled in Hawaii from organically grown sugar cane, then cut to proof with purified deep-sea water from 3,000 feet below the surface at the base of Mauna Kea, this is a fascinating vodka that balances sweet autumn orchard fruit and subtle salinity (making it excellent with fried and cured snacks), all carried on a light, energetic texture. The company also supports the Pacific Whale Foundation, so you can stir up a Martini with it and feel like you’re doing right by the planet…the definition of a win-win!”
— Best Vodkas—Food and Wine Magazine


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.
100% All NATURAL, ORGANIC AND GLUTEN FREE
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.

Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon



2020 Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon..$119.98
Deep and serious with black olives, blackberries, blueberries, tobacco leaf, sweet red capsicum, ash, dried meat and a hint of black chocolate. This is a more direct, full-bodied Don Melchor, filled with solid blackberries and wrapped by tight, fine-grained tannins. Long and deep. 92% cabernet sauvignon, 6% cabernet franc, 1% merlot and 1% petit verdot. Better after 2024.
Rated 97/100 James Suckling
Inviting aromas of chocolate-covered cherry, dried rose petal and petrichor set the stage for this well-structured red, which balances concentrated berry and mission fig flavors against vibrant acidity, lending a lush, mouthwatering quality to a finish that swirls with cassis, spices and fine tannins. Drink now through 2038. 14,600 cases made, 3,500 cases imported.

Bimini Overproof Gin




Gin Super Sale!!
Bimini Overproof Gin..on sale.....$19.99
was $31.99
55.5% ABV

Bimini Overproof has more flavor than regular Bimini Gin because none of the botanical oils are filtered out. Why is regular Bimini Gin filtered? Oils dissolve in alcohol, but they separate from water. When we dilute the original Bimini Gin to 94 proof, the botanical oils begin to fall out of solution making the gin appear cloudy. We didn’t think the world was ready to buy a bottle of cloudy gin, so we filtered out just enough oil to keep regular Bimini Gin clear at room temp.

At 111 proof, Bimini Overproof stays crystal clear at room temp with no filtration necessary. This means every drop of flavor we’ve extracted from our botanicals goes into the bottle.

Filtration removes more of some botanical oils than others, which means Bimini Overproof has a different balance of flavors than regular Bimini Gin. In particular, the juniper is more robust upfront and the hops more clearly defined in the middle palate.


BOTANICALS • Juniper • Grapefruit Peel • Mt. Hood Hops • Aromatic Barley Malt • Coriander Seed • Chamomile • Orris Root

The Bimini name was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s novel “Islands in the Stream” set in the 1930s on the island of Bimini in the Bahamas. The main character drinks gin with coconut water, lime, and angostura bitters while relaxing in the shade on his boat.
