THREE GREAT TASTINGS THIS WEEK:
Thursday, December 3rd, 5-8
Friday, December 4th, 5-8
Saturday, December 5th, 5-8
Vermut, Cocktails, Bourbon, Solera Brandy
Thursday, December 3rd, 5pm to 8pm
Atxa Blanco Vermouth – Amurrio, Basque Country, Spain (750ml) – $22.50
Vermouth is a fortified and aromatized wine that is macerated with a selection of herbs, fruits and roots. Atxa’s Vino Vermouth Blanco is made – in accordance with an old recipe passed down through the family – from a blend of wine and alcohol macerated with a selection of traditional botanicals including wormwood, gentian and bitter orange. With floral aromas followed on the palate by a hint of sweetness and bitter flavor framework, the Blanco is a real sipper. Try serving as an aperitif over ice, garnished with an orange wedge or lemon slice. This Vermouth will also work exceptionally well in your favorite cocktail.
Dark Horse Distillery Reserve Bourbon – Kansas (750ml) – $56
The Dark Horse Distillery Reserve Bourbon from Kansas is a beautiful mash of locally sourced 80% corn and 20% rye. From first sight to final sip, you’ll be seduced by its tender notes of vanilla, maple, caramel and smoke. Serve neat or in your favorite bourbon cocktails.
El Maestro Sierra Solera Reserva Brandy – Andalucia, Spain (1Ltr) – $90
Traditional Brandy of Jerez is aged similarly to Sherry: in a solera where bottles are pulled from the oldest casks and refilled from progressively younger ones. The El Maestro Sierra Brandy Reserva is aged a minimum of 20 years in old Oloroso casks and bottled without filtration. Dense and complex aromas of wood and tobacco very clearly show its age. The palate is rich and smooth with a very persistent finish. Exquisite. Plus, there’s a bunny on the bottle.
Kings County Distillers!
Friday, December 4th, 5pm to 8pm
Kings County Distillery ‘Moonshine’ – Brooklyn, NY (200ml) – $22.50
Kings County Distillery’s Moonshine is a corn whiskey made from 80% New York State organic corn and 20% Scottish malted barley. It is double distilled and sold at 40% abv in glass flasks. It distinguishes itself from other unaged whiskeys in that it is refined and highly drinkable, with a bright and intense flavor. While moonshine is a word that conjures a lot of fiery opinions, Kings County is smooth and compares to a good clear whiskey made from a mountain still.
Kings County Distillery’s Bourbon is made from New York State organic corn and malted barley from the U.K., and aged in new, American oak charred barrels. It is characterized by a rich aroma of fresh corn, balanced with the sweet caramelized oak sap from small casks. It has a very strong sweet base with flavors of vanilla and caramel, a deep molasses taste to the middle notes, and leaves a smooth finish with hints of cinnamon and autumn spices. Aged 12 months or more, this bourbon is a precocious whiskey, surprisingly robust for its age.
Kings County Distillery Barrel Strength 58.8% alcohol Bourbon Whiskey – Brooklyn, NY (200ml) – $35
Barrel Strength Kings County – even more of what we’ve all come to love! Perfect for cocktails or over ice.
Kings County Distillery Chocolate “Flavored” Whiskey – Brooklyn, NY (200ml) – $22.50
Kings County Distillery infuses their moonshine with cocoa pod husks, a by-product of the chocolate-making process, and the results are undeniably delicious. The liquor is a deep chocolate brown and tastes slightly bitter. It can best be compared to a liquefied dark chocolate bar. Serve neat as a dessert, or mix with coffee or sweet flavors in cocktails. The chocolate tends to settle, so shake the bottle before serving.
Kiwi Falcons guarding the vineyards at Lake Chalice.
Worldwide Wine Flight
Saturday, December 5th, 5pm to 8pm
Lake Chalice Wines is one of the few remaining privately and locally owned wine companies in New Zealand and is located in the country’s main wine-growing region, Marlborough. Their new “Cracklin’ Savie” is a sparkling Sauvignon Blanc that mixes all the benefits of that grape’s tenure in New Zeland with festive bubbles. Fabulous when well-chilled and shared with friends and family. Virtual summer in a bottle!
From beautiful, sea-swept Mendocino County comea this family-made New World-style Chardonnay, made primarly from grapes grown at the fantastic La Ribera vineyard aong the banks of the Russian River. The wine sees a little American oak, enough for lush, but not too much. A little Viognier blended in, along with another, spicer Chard that’s seen a bit of French oak, brings out the signature pear, apple and crisp mineral flavors. Works well with poached salmon, lobster rolls, or a cheese soufflé.
Domaine Grosbois has been family owned since 1820, with some records indicating that they have been in the area since the French Revolution. This little charmer, affectionately named “my mother’s cooking”, is 100% cab franc, rustic, light and peppery. It’s ready for your pork stew, or vegetable pot pie.
This blend of the five Bordeaux varieties (Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, & Petit Verdot) from Washington State is full bodied with ripe dark fruits and silky tannins. Aged two full years in oak, it has the stuffing to stand up to your pot roast or prime rib. It’s really fun to drink on its own as well, and with a name like “The Reveler” we’re willing to bet it’ll be dancing on a few tables this season.
