Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Tom Cat Gin Vermont 750 mL
Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Tom Cat Gin Vermont 750 mL

Barr Hill Tom Cat Reserve is crafted by maturing Barr Hill Gin for three to four months in new American oak casks. “While resting in the barrels, the gin is constantly transforming,” says Todd Hardie, Caledonia Spirits founder. “The charred barrels contribute to the brown color of the spirit and give our Barr Hill Reserve Tom Cat its complex flavor.” Tom Cat Reserve has notes of juniper and ginger, but also has touches of caramel, vanilla and honey that are robust and bountiful. The combination of juniper and oak mingle to create a distinct cinnamon note. An absolutely spectacular, one of a kind spirit. Rich's tasting notes : Barr Hill Tom Cat tangerine, pine, honey notes, bees wax, use it to make summer drinks in the winter (Gin & Tonic) and winter drinks in the summer (Tom Cat Gin Manhattan)

Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon
Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon
"Rich velvety nose of caramel, butterscotch, vanilla, nutmeg, and coconut. But the real character was revealed in the finish-long, smooth, and buttery, like warm caramelized sugar crackling and melting across your tongue. This bourbon should be savored slowly, at bottle proof, perhaps with a little water or soda, but never with cola or lemon-lime soda. If you're mixing it with something like that, you really shouldn't be buying our bourbon." -The Distillery

New England Distilling Gunpowder Rye Whiskey 750 mL

"Gunpowder Rye Whiskey draws its inspiration from our rich heritage of rye whiskey production: brewed from local grains and distilled in small batches on our traditional copper pot still. Gunpowder is a spicy Maryland style rye with toasted malt flavor and big barrel character. The finish is long with vanilla and chocolate notes." -The Distillery

Town Branch Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Town Branch Kentucky Straight Bourbon

"One of bourbon's most distinctive qualities comes from the limestone water that brought bourbon to popularity in the 1800s. The name, Town Branch, commemorates the body of water that currently runs under Lexington, on which Lexington was founded. Town Branch, once the lifeblood of Lexington, is again bringing joy to Lexingtonians and bourbon lovers alike. Aged in new, charred white oak barrels, Town Branch is infused with a golden amber honey color, which is your inviting introduction to this masterfully crafted bourbon. Pleasant woody and oaky aromas lead into caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and hints of cherry. The lavish and complex flavors are smooth and sweet with a gentle warming leading to a long finish." -The Distillery

Rinomato Aperitivo 1L Italian Bitters Liqueur
Rinomato Aperitivo 1L Italian Bitters Liqueur

"A bitter aperitivo that neither overwhelms nor underwhelms, always adding layers of delicate flavor, never taking them away. Rich aromas of orange peel, vanilla, gentian root, cinchona bark, and wormwood. An initial sweetness on the palate carries those aromas into a long and ever-intensifying bitter finish that remains in perfect balance with texture and spice." -The Importer

From the Importer:

The Process: Rinomato is produced in Asti, Piedmonte. The region is steeped in Aperitivo history, and our distillery captures that rich heritage by employing classic Italian production techniques at every turn.

•Our hand-picked botanicals arrive in raw form from only the finest suppliers, and are checked for quality and consistency. Most prevalent botanicals: Chirata, Angelica, Wormwood, Bitter Orange Peel, Sweet Orange Peel, Cascarilla Bark, Gentian Root, and Rhubarb. 
•The botanicals are crushed to desired coarseness using a restored 1930s botanical mill, a relic of the early 20th century aromatized wine boom in Italy. Crushing botanicals ourselves means we control the coarseness of herbs and spices, a determining factor of what flavors are extracted. Crushing just in time for production ensures botanicals are potent and have not lost their freshness.
•The botanical mixture is then combined with a high-quality beet sugar distillate, and the natural flavors are extracted using pressure and circulation. This maceration period lasts for about one month. High-quality beet sugar distillate sourced locally is the alcohol base for our lengthened botanical extraction process.
•The concentrated extract is then diluted, sweetened to perfection with raw sugar, filtered multiple times, and bottled. Retro bottles and full-length labels, inspired by our personal collection of antique Amari and Quinquinas.
