Artigiano Giuseppe Castelli Grappa Barolina 750 ml

Distilleria Castelli is a small, family-run operation in the heart of Piedmont working with neighboring growers/winemakers to repurpose the grape pomace left behind from vinification, into surprisingly aromatic and delicate grappas. The Castelli family collects the pomace and ages it in sealed tanks to help intensify the flavor, and is then distilled and aged for  several years in stainless steel. The Barolina Grappa is 100% Nebbiolo from Barolo vineyards, distilled and then aged for 6 years in stainless steel, bottled at 50%ABV, leading to a softer, rounder mouthfeel than the grappa my grandfather used to have open at parties. The nose presents a melance of honeyed apricot, daffodils, and Meyer lemon peel, and on the palate flavors of stonefruits, wildflower honey, and cardamom. Michelle DeWyngaert

Chateau de Leberon Solera Ténarèze Armagnac 750ml

The Chateau de Leberon has been in the family for four generations, focused on crafting a spirit that wholly reflects their micro-terroir by using all estate-grown fruit, and even estate-grown wood for their barrels. As all of their other bottlings are vintage-dated, in 2001 a solera, or "cellar master's cask" was started, with minimum 3-year-old spirit being added each year, as a portion is bottled. The nose is elegant and high-toned, a bit floral even, with cherry blossom mingling with caramel and spice. The palate has a lightness to it, though far from "thin," with a touch of cinnamon heat on the finish. Opens up nicely with a small splash of water!  Michelle DeWyngaert

Groult, Roger 3 Year Old Calvados Reserve Pays d'Auge (3 Year)

A versatile, classic style of Calvados from a family who has been maintaining orchards and crafting this spirit in the Pays d'Auge for five generations. 100% cider apples (a blend of about 70% bittersweet, 20% sweet, and 10% tart apple varieties) from their estate orchards are used, brewed into cider and distilled twice over a wood-fired pot still as they have for over a century. On the nose is a mix of freshly picked, and bruised red apple, vanilla bean, a touch of baking spice, and fragrant apple blossoms. On the palate are notes of cinnamon and baked apple, allspice, a kick of heat on the finish and a lingering texture from the apple skins and oak tannin. This mixes very well into cocktails you might use Bourbon for, or slightly chilled for drinking on its own. Michelle DeWyngaert

Huard 2002 Calvados Le Pertyer Hors d'Age

Our Chambers Street selection of Calvados was distilled in 2002 and was aged in a barrel that previously held cider and Pommeau (cider and Calvados blended together). From the diary of John Rankin: The barrel that we bought has candied apple and toffee cream flavors and is surprisingly juicy and fruit-forward, even with a fair amount of age and alcohol percentage. It shows the influence of Pommeau and cider more than barrel, along with richness and a long finish of exotic citrus and dark-toned flowers. Tim Gagnon

Hunter Moon Immature Brandy

The ladies at Hunter Moon are doing their best to bring back eau-de-vie (otherwise known as 'unaged brandy') with this delicious example. This is truly natural wine-making distilled, a rarity in the spirits world. The base for their brandy comes from Farrm Wines on the North Fork of Long Island, a Demeter certified vineyard, with a blend of 80% Petit Verdot and 20% Cabernet Franc, fermented entirely with native yeasts. It is then distilled in a hybrid copper/pot still, rested in glass, and then bottled at 50%ABV. Notes of honey, cherry blossom, and fresh herbs on the nose, with a soft, lush texture on the palate. I think this makes a killer Vesper variation, but it would also be great as a base for tinctures or bitters! Michelle DeWyngaert

Laurent Cazottes NV Goutte de Reine-Claude Brandy 375 ml

Laurent Cazottes is undoubtedly one of the finest distillers in the entire world. Farming  grapes and fruit trees biodynamically in the Tarn department in Southwest France, he is crafting some of the purest expressions of fruit brandy that I have ever tasted. This beautiful greengage plum (Reine-Claude in French) brandy comes from a small .7 hectare grove of ancient trees, and Laurent hand peels and de-seeds the fruit before fermenting and distilling. I've never had the pleasure of tasting greengage plums, this old heirloom variety is nearly extinct in the US, but this exceptionally crafted distillate more than makes up for it. A wonderful way to finish a meal, and a real treat! Oskar Kostecki

Through the Grapevine Cognac Fin Bois Remi Landier Lot 73

I am astounded by the freshness that this old Cognac carries. A single cask from the outlying appellation of Fin Bois, this was distilled in 1973 by the Landier family from grapes grown in clay-limestone soils. It has a beautiful, lifted aromatic profile, with notes of citrus, tangerine, orange zest, orange marmalade, white flowers, apple, pear, and darker aromas of plum and toffee. There is a hint of rancio and baking spice, and while you can feel the age of the spirit, the roundness it carries on the palate and its phenomenal length, there is also a vibrancy to the fruit character that I've never experienced in a Cognac this old. A truly unique expression. Bottled at 47.8% ABV. Oskar Kostecki

Catskill Provisions Beespoke Gin 750mL

Created by beekeeper-turned-distiller, Claire Marin, the Beespoke gin highlights local grapes from the Finger Lakes (a blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Gruner Veltliner)  bee-friendly botanicals, and a bit of  honey provided by their apiary. The grape base gives this gin a richer, creamier mouthfeel and despite the faintly sweet aroma, the gin remains dry on the palate as there is nothing added post-distillation. Michelle DeWyngaert

Cotswolds Dry Gin

A recent arrival to the US market! Named for the rural area outside of London in where the distillery is located, Cotswolds Gin went into production in 2014. Nine botanicals undergo 18-hour maceration in a base distillate of wheat and these include juniper, coriander, bay, fresh citrus peel, and black pepper, among others. It is beautifully aromatic – juniper heavy, with cool overtones of balsam, mint, rosemary, cucumber, and lime – but maintains a classic, dry profile on the palate with added lift seemingly from the fresh citrus peel. Green herbs and black pepper creep in on the finish. Very balanced and long, this makes a killer Martini, and it is also un-chillfiltered so it clouds up when cold! Tim Gagnon

Greenhook Ginsmiths American Dry Gin 750ml

This bottle represents the Gin obsession of Brooklyn native Steven DeAngelo. His distillery is located in the once industrial, now artisanal, north-Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint. Here he uses a still with vacuum technology that allows distillation to occur at a lower temperature. This cooler process results in a gin with surprisingly fresh aromatics and a very bright green coriander note. These flavors are very well expressed in a gin and tonic, but also work well with other herbal spirits like Amaro. John Rankin

We look forward to their unique seasonal gin releases every year! For this year's 'Vernal' bottling they focused on grapefruit, using 170lbs of fresh grapefruit peel in the maceration in addition to their traditional additions of juniper, coriander, cardamom and other herbs. We love how vibrant and citrus-forward this gin is for gin and tonics/soda, but it also makes a killer negroni! Michelle DeWyngaert

West Cork Distillery Garish Island Gin 750 ml

Garnish Island located off the southwest coast of Ireland is renowned for its gardens. Inspired by the lush gardens of her home isle, master distiller, Deirde Bohane, Ireland’s only female Master Gin distiller at West Cord Distillery uses 12 local herbs and botanicals to create a lovely Irish Gin. She uses a small custom-designed copper pot still, distilling in small slow batches. This gin is non-chill-filtered and bottled at 47% to retain all the natural flavors and oils of botanicals and it may cloud when chilled or mixed.  A unique gin that is intensely aromatic with aromas of juniper, rose petal, rosemary and thyme, and on the palate is juniper, orange zest, rosemary and thyme with a finish of dark chocolate and strawberries. Enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or in any of your favorite gin cocktails. Nelson Dejesus

Misc. Spirits

Argala NV Amaro Alpino 750ml (28%)

The Argala spirits hail from the picturesque village of Roccavione in Piedmont, Italy where herbs and botanicals abound. Argala distillers, Enrico and Piero, began their operation in 2011, and since 2018 they cultivate their own herbs and plants in a nearby field for their macerations, because it is important to them that their amaro and pastis full represent the Maritime alps. The Amaro is a blend of 30 different herbs and botanicals macerated in a wheat distillate, and lightly sweetened. The dominant aromas come from the pine, juniper, and orange peels, and elderberry gives it color.

Many of the plants used for their liqueurs are grown right in town, in a nearby field. This pastis is a blend of 35 herbs and spices macerated in neutral wheat distillate, and then redistilled. It is then lightly sweetened with Mascobado sugar and bottled at 45% ABV.

Averell Damson Gin Liqueur

Heirloom Damson plums from the Red Jacket Orchards in upstate NY are freshly squeezed to create this updated version of  a Sloe Gin. The American Gin Company uses these plums are distinct for their incredibly tart and slightly bitter flavor, which makes this gin-based liqueur bright enough to replace or complement the citrus element of your next cocktail. The tart plums are complemented by the botanicals of its gin base; juniper, bay leaf, ginger, and winter spices. Bottled at 33% ABV this liqueur finishes more tart than sweet making it versatile enough to  be used either as cocktail base, a lower ABV alternative to gin, or as an accent in an aperitif.

Bordiga Vermouth di Torino Extra Dry

Bordiga is a long-standing distillery established in 1888 outside of Turin, close to the Occitan Alps. They craft their own vermouths with Piedmontese grapes and infuse nearly thirty botanicals, some of which are foraged from the mountains nearby. Each botanical is macerated in neutral grain alcohol separately to ensure the best extraction and then blended into the base of Moscato and Cortese. The 'Extra-Dry' is fresh, herbaceous and  has a pleasantly bitter finish. If you like more than a 'whisper' of vermouth in your martini, this is a great option. Michelle DeWyngaert

Cappelletti Elisir Novasalus Vino Amaro 16% 750ml

Disclaimer: This is an Amaro for adventurous drinkers! Beginning with a rich red wine base, the production process involves a 6-month infusion with local flowers, herbs, and roots and the only sweetener used is a local tree sap. This yields an intensely bitter and dark spirit with a piney, earthy finish. I find it to be incredibly compelling and energizing, especially after a gluttonous meal, but it isn’t for the faint of heart! Tim Gagnon

Cappelletti Sfumato Rabarbaro Amaro (20%)

This is an excellent amaro for those looking for something slightly less bitter as their digestif. The name Sfumato derives from the Italian word for smoke and refers the slightly smokey quality of the bitter roots used in the blend. The key ingredient for this amaro is the Chinese Rhubarb, which gives it a touch of sweetness and marries well with the alpine herbs and berries. Earthy, smokey, fruity, and herbaceous, all perfectly balanced together.

Cappelletti Vino Aperitivo Americano Rosso

This is our go-to aperitif for spritzes. Compared to the larger producers on the market, this lands somewhere between Aperol and Campari on the bitterness scale, is made without unnatural colorings and additives, and is grape-based instead of using grain spirit. The vibrant color comes from the traditional carmine as aperitivos were originally made, and the wine base gives it a richer, more unctuous texture.

The mix of bitter and sweet makes this a perfect pairing for dark chocolate desserts, and great in whiskey drinks. Try this in your next Manhattan!

Delightfully off-dry, floral, a bit of sweet almond and white peach. Great on it's own, with a splash of seltzer, or try it with Tequila, it plays well with agave!  Michelle DeWyngaert

The Forthave Marseille Amaro is truly unique affair. Based on a medieval recipe of four thieves who, as the story goes, traded their secret concoction for clemency. It is at once soft and assertive. Eucalyptus, mint, cinnamon, dried lemon peel, dried tea leaves, and honey dominate the nose, while the palate further reveals star anise, lemon extract, a touch of vanilla, and cloves. Marseille uses raw honey as a sweetener, and similar to something like Amaro dell'Erborista by Varnelli, it gives it a wonderful, soft and lush texture. Perfect as an after dinner digestif.

The coffee beans are roasted, go through carbonic maceration to bring out those bright, fruity notes, and then cold brewed. This will make the most perfect espresso martini, but also, you're going to want to just drink it straight. Michelle DeWyngaert

Fred Jerbis Fernet 25 Single Barrel 750ml 34% abv

Frederico __ of Fred Jerbis is devoted to showcasing the Fruiulian terroir (Jerbis being the word for herbs in this Italian dialect) through freshly foraged and organically grown herbs and botanicals from the region. He considers himself an alchemist, spending much of his time experimenting with distillation and steeping techniques to get perfect flavor extracted from every ingredient. His Fernet 25 comes form a single chestnut barrel made without dyes/colorings and very little sugar. Twenty-five different Italian botanicals are used including mint, saffron, chamomile, licorice, savory, orange, rhubarb and of course, gentian. The nose is super fresh, a burst of spearmint and tarragon, followed by toasty chestnut and  nutmeg imparted by the barrel aging. The palate is well balanced and rich without being too viscous, and a nice burst of citrus from the orange peel keeps it lifted. Michelle DeWyngaert

High Wire Distilling Southern Amaro Liqueur 750

Historically, amari were made as a way to make full use of the harvest by macerating leftover herbs, botanicals, and fruits in distilled spirits. This of course means everything was grown locally, resulting in a myriad of different styles depending on where you were and what crops were planted. And while there are other American amari on the market today, it’s hard to think of one that truly capitalizes on its bountiful, regional raw ingredients. Most are based on traditional Italian – or even Scandinavian – recipes, which are delicious, but rely on herbs and botanicals that may or may not be native to where they are made. Enter High Wire’s Southern Amaro. Using a base of neutral corn spirit, they macerate Yaupon Holly (America’s only native caffeinated plant) and gentian root, along with wild mint, local Dancy tangerine, and Charleston Black Tea (the only colorant used), among other botanicals. It is then sweetened with neutral cane syrup which they make themselves from local sugarcane. It is wild and intriguing on the nose with brown sugar, sweet spice, and zesty citrus balanced by deeper aromas of black tea leaves, pine resin, smoke, and hints of brine and celery. The palate is quite lifted and herb-forward with a balanced sweetness, and it is here that the tangerine and mint really shine along with a touch of black cherry. Reach for this after a fantastic meal! Tim Gagnon

Liquore delle Sirene Artiginale Bitter 750ml 23%ABV

Elisa Carta is breathing new life into the herbs and botanicals of Lake Garda in the Veneto using ancient recipes passed down through several generations. It wasn't until recently that young people like Elisa have returned to the region to replant local fields, farming organically and harvesting by hand. The 'Artiginale Bitter' is made without chemicals, artificial coloring, or heavy filtration, and unlike other aperitivo bitters has a more amber color.  I consider this a warmer, more spice driven aperitivo that still works wonderfully in the classics like negroni, spritz, or boulevardier (where it really compliments the caramel, baking spice notes of Bourbon). Botanicals include olive and lemon tree leaves, linden and acacia flowers, wild rose berries, sweet and bitter orange, absinthe, gentian and ginger. Michelle DeWyngaert

Little City Vermouth Dry Vermouth 375ml

This is an entirely hand-crafted, locally made dry Vermouth from Will Clark of Little City. What started out as a hobby in his living room has grown into a full-fledged operation supplying bars, restaurants, and retail stores. The base wine for these aromatized, fortified spirits is actually made from 100% Cayuga White, a hybrid grape designed for the cold winters of the Finger Lakes, which is then blended with 38 macerated grasses, botanicals, barks, and berries. Notes of almond and chamomile on the nose with yellow apple, with a more savory palate of dried herbs, dried chamomile, and celery salt on the finish. I love how flavorful and a little vegetal this blend is, making it truly worthy of a wet martini (the best way to drink a martini, in my humble opinion). Michelle DeWyngaert

The Sweet Vermouth is blended with 53 botanicals, many of them the usual suspects such as gentian, juniper, cinnamon, and orange peel, but with a few more interesting additions like black sesame, black walnut leaf, and grapefruit peel. In order to keep the integrity of these flavors, heat is never used, only maceration until it reaches the perfect balance. Michelle DeWyngaert

Varnelli Amaro "Sibilla" 1 Liter

Named after the impressive mountain range in the Southwestern corner of the Marche, this spirit is a must-try for Amaro fans. The flavor profile definitely leans toward the drier, more herbaceous end of the spectrum and will seem quite bitter if you are used to Averna or Montenegro. The botanicals are wood smoked before maceration which adds a degree of complexity seldom found in Amari. Mountain honey is used sparingly to balance the bitter flavors. I have found Sibillia to be a delicious digestive, but also quite delightful at the shore when mixed with tonic and an orange rind. JR

This is the most powerful Amaro I have ever tried. To drink it is to experience a brisk and bracing shock of mountain roots and herbs. The flavors are intense enough to make one’s whole mouth tingle, and the experience lasts for several minutes. As a warning, it must be said that this tonic is brutally dry, rich, and smoky. One could tackle a glass neat after dinner, or a splash could go a long way in creating unique cocktails. This tonic is made with botanicals that are smoked prior to maceration, and mountain honey is used (extremely sparingly) as a sweetener. For the adventurous there is nothing else quite like it! JR

Boukman Botanical Rum Haiti 45%

Boukman is a classic Haitian 'clairin trempè' or spiced rhum honoring the great Dutty Boukman who led the enslaved people of Haiti to freedom in 1791. The base is fresh sugar cane juice from two of the best sites in Haiti, Croix des Bouquets and Cap Haïtien. It is fermented with indigenous yeasts, distilled and then blended with seven botanicals, many native to the island, making this a true expression of Haitian terroir. There is no sugar added, but the addition of whole and extracted vanilla, clove, and cinnamon give it a warm, sweet spice on the finish. If you notice the stain on the front label, that's there, as Voodoo tradition dictates, to ward off evil spirits. This may be a part of why I enjoy it so much in hot toddies when I'm feeling under the weather, but this is also delicious on its own as a digestif. Michelle DeWyngaert

A collaboration between two of the best rum distilleries in the world, Foursquare and Hampden Estate in Jamaica, Probitas is made of three components: a 2-year-aged Foursquare rum distilled on Coffey still, an unaged Foursquare Coffey still, and an unaged Hampden Estate pot-distilled rum. Opening with notes of creamy vanilla  and citrus on the nose, from the first sip this is rich and complex, incorporating the best of what both producers have to offer, with just enough funk from the Hampden distillate to make this very engaging. Tropical fruit, banana custard, notes of molasses and sugarcane are all present on the thick and oily palate. Sipping it neat isn't a problem, but cocktails is where this rum really shines. Will make the perfect Daiquiri! Oskar Kostecki

Holmes Cay Fiji Single Origin Rum 46%

A brand new bottlings from Holmes Cay, and a departure from their aged single-barrel expressions, this is a blend of younger casks from the South Pacific Distilleries in Fiji. The rums are all molasses-based and a mix of copper pot and column-still distillations, briefly aged and bottled, as all of the Holmes Cay rums are, without coloring or additions. Notes of cooked pineapple, banana purée, kiwi, vanilla bean, and cinnamon red hots on the finish. Incredibly aromatic, with great balance perfect for daiquiris or on its own.  This is an excellent opportunity to taste the high quality selections of Eric Kaye at a much more approachable price-point.

Holmes Cay 2005 Guyana Port Mourant Single Cask Rum 56.4%

The Port Mourant still is totally unique; the last double wooden pot still in operation in the entire world. Originally built in 1732 on the Port Mourant Estate, it then moved to Uitvlugt Estate, and after that was shut down, ended up at Demerara Distillers Limited, the last rum distillery in Guyana. Since then the rums coming off the Port Mourant still have been used in blends for El Dorado, the flagship brand of DDL. To find a single cask of exclusively Port Mourant still rum is a treat indeed. This cask has spent most of its time aging in a continental climate in Northern Europe, and is bottled at cask strength without any additives. Off the bat this feels slightly funkier than one would expect from a rum from Guyana. There is tropical fruit here: a hint of guava, a hint of banana, under-ripe pineapple, coconut, along with apricot, green apple peel, mirabelle plum. There is an herbaceous and savory edge to this rum, with some vegetal notes of dried grass and undergrowth, along with a hint of engine oil and a touch of iodine. Incredibly complex, and maybe even a little bit mysterious, this is a rum I kept coming back to, trying to figure out it's shifting and mesmerizing profile. Oskar Kostecki

Père Labat Ilse de Marie-Galante Rhum Agr 59% 1L

The tiny Isle of Marie-Galante, a part of Guadalupe, devotes 20% of its land to growing sugarcane, and for great reason; the rum is delicious! This is a very traditional rhum agricole made at the oldest distillery on the island, with one of the oldest stills, with all estate and locally grown sugarcane (red, white, blue, and grey). The farming here is all by hand, without chemicals or fertilizers, and as a department of France, they are actually subject to regulated wages and fair labor laws. This bottling, a whopping 59%ABV is actually the standard on the island. The fresh cane juice is distilled in creole column stills and then slowly proofed down over 10-15 in old foudres. I can think of many ways to enjoy this rhum, but I highly recommend you try it as it is utilized most often on the island; in a ti'punch, just a splash of cane/simple syrup, a hefty pour of rhum, and a small disc of lime.

Privateer 1L New England Rum White

Privateer is a New England based rum distillery dedicated to using the highest quality molasses, the best techniques, and never filtering or using additives or coloring. The white rum starts with 100% Grade A Guatemalan molasses from a single source: the Madre Tierra Sugar Farm. Madre Tierra is a member of Sugar for Good, an organization committed to the best environmental practices and standards for sugarcane workers. The mash is fermented at a lower temperature than is typical for rum in order to coax out the most vibrant flavors. The fermented molasses base is distilled twice and then transferred to steel tanks where it is slowly proofed and settled for two months. Finally it is bottled at 80 proof as a clean, incredibly aromatic, tropical, white rum. Michelle DeWyngaert

Privateer 'PM Spirits Selection' Single Cask American Rum The Queen's Share 56.5%

Maggie Campbell is serious force to be reckoned with. A savant of spirits, if you will. Her dedication to precision and passion for great rum has led to these exquisite bottles. The 'Queen's Share' is based with 100% Grade A Guatemalan molasses and is taken from a blend of the 'seconds'(the end of the 'heart' and just before the 'tails') cut from each of the Privateer spirits. It is pot distilled first and then goes into a column still before being aged for a minimum of two years in either a new American oak or used bourbon, run, or brandy barrels. As each expression of the Queen's Share is a single batch, single barrel expression, it is matched with which ever barrel they believe will properly showcase the unique spirit. This edition was chosen by the spirits experts, and Privateer enthusiasts, of importer PM Spirits as their favorite cask of the lot. It is bottled at 56.5%ABV.

Deanston Distillery NV Single Malt Scotch Whisky Highland 750ml

The history of Deanston began with a cotton mill along the River Teith and grew into its own thriving, self-contained village with the mill eventually replaced by today's whisky distillery. Their location by the river affords them excellent water quality, and the ability to power their distillery sustainably with turbines. Unlike many whisky producer in Scotland, all of the grains used at Deanston are from local Scottish farmers, and they do not use chill-filtration or any colorings or additives. The Virgin Oak bottling is aged in new oak barrels, which gives it pronounced flavors of  honey, vanilla, and sweet nutmeg, and a gentle spice on the palate for an easy-drinking, approachable Scotch.  Michelle DeWyngaert

I urge you to look past this ridiculous label, because it does not at all reflect the beautifully blended Lowlands Scotch whisky inside! As with all whiskies selected and bottled by Douglas Laing & Co, the 'Epicurean' is bottled without additions, coloring, or chill-filtration at 46.2% ABV, presenting the spirits "as the Distiller intended." Pale and delicate in the glass with notes of fresh grass, linen, ripe pear, toasted cereal, heather honey, and just a touch of hot pepper on the finish.

This bottle is a vatting of three, four and five year old whiskies, with meticulous barrel selection giving the scotch a more mature profile than one may think.  JR

PM Spirits 24 year-old Single Malt Whisky Isle of Arr VS 750ml

**Arrives 12/8**  In 2004, David traveled to Scotland with his youngest daughter to help her get situated in her first of four years at St. Andrews University. The trip also involved a visit to the Isle of Arran for hiking, haggis and good whisky. Fast forward to a year or two ago, when a customer was chatting with him on the phone and the subject of Scotland came up. David mentioned the memorable visit to Arran, and the gent on the phone got excited and posed a question. He had purchased a barrel from the Isle of Arran Distillery, and had then discovered that there was no way for a civilian to bring a barrel home to the US. David mentioned our friend Nicolas Palazzi and the fine work he does with importing spirits, and suggested a collaboration of sorts.The result is this unique bottling of a stellar 24 year old Single Malt from Isle of Arran, finished in Cognac barrels. Rich, enveloping caramel, with just the slightest whiff of smoke. We are happy to have a small amount of this limited edition Scotch!

Tapatio Anejo Tequila 1L

La Altena Distillery has a bit of a cult following in Mexico because of their high-quality Tequilas. They have been operating  since the early 1800's and it remains a family operation to this day. Their 100% Blue Agave is double-distilled and bottled without any additions, even water. The Añejo is aged for 18 months in used American Whiskey barrels which give it this slightly amber color and notes of caramel and cinnamon.

As you take more time with this tequila, it reveals hints of caramel, cacao, toasted coconut and floral perfume. A grassy undertone leads to a crisp and mineral finish. Great as a sipper, this finds a perfect home in cocktails,from Margaritas and Palomas to a Tequila Old-Fashioned. Oskar Kostecki

Casa San Matias is one of the oldest distilleries in Mexico, and this release is a harkening back to a very traditional practice of crushing the agave with  their 100 year-old Tahona, basalt stone. The Weber Blue agave juice is then fermented in pine vats and then distilled twice in copper pots. The reposado is aged for three months before bottling.

Cinco Sentidos Nicolas Gutierrez Cuishe de Moho

This is a truly special single batch agave spirit chosen by PM Spirits for its unique character. Crafted by Nicolas Garci´a Gutie´rrez from 100% Cuishe agave in San Luis Amatla´n, Miahuatla´n, Oaxaca. After harvest, the agave was buried and cooked underground pits, but a long stretch of heavy rain forced them to delay unearthing the oven. When it had finally dried out, they discovered that a type of mildew (moho) had grown over the agave, but they fermented it as is in Cyrpus tanks, then double-distilled, once with refrescadera and once without. The nose is unlike any other agave spirit I've tried with notes of seasrapy, lobster shell, roasted pablano, fresh jalapeno, and just a slight smokiness. On the palate there is a nice weight and density, bold but not to hot at 48.5% ABV with a stony, textural finish. Fascinating! Michelle DeWyngaert

Derrumbes Salmiana Mezcal San Luis Potosi 44.16%

Produced from the wild agave Selmiana in the high altitude Central Mexican Plateau in the state of San Luis Potosi, this is a beautiful foil to traditional Oaxacan mezcal. The agave is not roasted, but cooked (similar to Tequila) resulting in a spirit that is not smokey, but instead bursts on the palate with a crazy array of flavors. Herbal and mineral tones weave their way through a bright citrus and  floral character. There's a slight sourness, a funk that I associate with cheese rind, and noticeable acidity, which is quite shocking for a distillate. The wilder side of mezcal. What I also notice with my bottle of Selmiana is that it changes quite remarkably once open. When I first popped the cork, it felt slightly muted and withdrawn, but within 20 minutes all the exuberance I remembered from previous bottles was there again. It is fascinating watching the bottle change and evolve over a period of weeks. Oskar Kostecki

Fidencio Mezcal Joven Clasico 46.6% (Arrives 8/2)

One of the only mezcales that is farmed biodynamically, Fidencio Clasico comes from the heartland of agave distillation in Oaxaca, Santiago Matatlan. Maestro Mezcalero Enrique Jimenez allows his espadin agave to mature for at least 10 years (most is cut down at 7) before harvesting and fermenting using only natural ambient yeast. An assertive smokiness on the attack gives way to fruit, specifically melon, grapefruit, and under-ripe banana. The finish resolves with a minerality reminiscent of hot stones and salinity. A perfect cocktail option. Oskar Kostecki

Fortaleza Blanco Tequila 750

The makers of Fortaleza Tequila have been in the business for over 140 years. The founder (great-great-grandfather to the current owner) was the first person to export the spirit to the US, the first to implement the use of steam, instead of the traditional smoking pit, to cook the agave, and his son went on to file the application making Tequila an established Designation of Origin.  Although the original company was sold, the family managed to hold onto the small distillery built at the highest point in the town of Tequila. Though the family has always been innovators, their current approach is to use the original recipe of their great-great-grandfather; with agave cooked in a small brick oven, stone-crushed, fermented in wooden tanks, and  double distilled in copper pots.

Gran Agave is produced at the Destilaria Santa Lucia in the Jalisco Highlands. Despite being made at an incredible price, the Newton family continues to use the formula that they created back in 1940. All naturally grown Blue Agave, aged 4 to 6 years before harvest, steam-cooked without the use of a diffuser as they do with popular bulk Tequilas. The agave juice is fermented  in open-top steel tanks, double-distilled in copper pot stills, and then bottled without additives. This is our go-to for a clean, fresh, easy-to-mix with Tequila!

Mal Bien (Félix Ramírez) Yogana, Ejutla, Oax. Mezcal Artesanal Espadín

Espadín from Ejutla! Félix Ramírez (Mendez) is a second-generation mezcalero based in the town of Yogana, about an hour and a half drive south of Oaxaca de Juárez. We're very excited to offer his first bottling to make it to NYC. The Espadín piñas are roasted in earthen pit for three days before a five day rest. Milling is by tahona and the fibers ferment with well water in Cypress tina followed by a single distillation through a copper alembic still with refrescadera typical to the Ejutla region, having a cool water-submerged montera above the pot with two rectifying plates inside. The cold water and the plates work to further distill the vapors, so a single pass is usually all that's needed to get close to the desired spirit, then proofed to 46.69% ABV with puntas and colas (Aug 2018).

Mezcal Tosba Espadin Oaxaca

The plots for Tosba's Espadin are scattered throughout the valley, ranging in altitude from 1100m close to the village of Lachiroig to about 600m around the palenque. The growing conditions and maturation times vary greatly. Lower down the mountain, due to the more tropical conditions,the Espadin can mature in as little as 6-7 years, while  the plots at higher elevations take up to 11 years. At the moment Edgar is co-fermenting and co-distilling plants taken from all the different parcels, but on my visit we talked about the future possibility of separating the Espadin according to terroir. Though currently we are in love with this new release. Higher proof than the earlier batches, it still retains its hallmark vivacity and acidity. The nose is all crushed rock and tropical fruit (banana!), with a faint whiff of aged Parmesan.  The palate shows notes of guava and watermelon bubblegum, with a floral element reminiscent of hibiscus. There is a hint of thyme and cardamom, along with a smoky, charcoal note. Viva Mezcal Tosba, this is sensational Espadin! Oskar Kostecki

Neta Tomas Garcia Cruz Tobala Capon

This mezcal is bade from 100% caponed Tobala grown by Don  Tomás  García  Cruz  and  his  son, on steep, white rocky soils. It is rare to find cultivated Tobala, but this experiement by the Cruz family of planting from seed led to maturation of the plants in half the time it typically takes in the wild. The agave is cooked for four days in ovens with mesquite and oak then fermented in open wood vats before double-distilling in copper pot stills. Only 180L were made of this very special bottling. The nose is bright and high-toned with notes of lime zest, white button mushroom, and cardamom. On the palate this spirit is delicate and fresh with notes of artichoke, sweet smoke from the mesquite, and fresh cardamom pods. Michelle DeWyngaert

Currently in the hands of Maestro Bacanorero Roberto Contreras, the Rancho Tepua distillery has been in the family for over five generations. Notes of sweet cherry blossom, chicory, and fresh herbs on the nose, and on the palate a balance of sweet and savory spice, roasted banana leaf, and a crushed stone minerality that lingers after each sip. Enjoy this neat or with a small ice cube to cut the heat. Michelle DeWyngaert

Catskill Provisions Pollinator Vodka 750mL

It’s not often that I consider the “flavor” of vodka. Typically the best vodka is the most neutral, but occasionally a spirit like Pollinator Vodka comes along that is both clean and delicate, but also has an inkling of its origins. In this case the base is their own wildflower honey and non-GMO sustainably farmed corn, distilled and then proofed down with local Catskill Mountain spring water. On the nose is the faint aroma of beeswax and wildflowers, and the palate has a nice density and richness to it. This is a vodka I would gladly sip over ice or enhance with a bit of dry vermouth.

"The Village" at Laws Whiskey House (as they call their team there) takes Whiskey very seriously. The founders set up shop in Colorado specifically because they recognized the potential of the Rocky Mountain terroir to grow exceptional heirloom grains. They work with two family run farms, the Cody Family Farm in San Luis Valley and the Ohnmacht’s Farm on the Eastern Plains. Rather than use commercially farmed, GMO grains, they use these heritage varieties which are lower yield and harder to grow, but produce much more flavor for the finished product. The grains are milled at the Laws distillery, combined into a sour-mash, and open-air fermented. It is distilled in a custom pot-still and then aged in American oak for a minimum of two years.

Coppersea Hudson Valley Bourbon Whisky

A true Bourbon of New York, all of the ingredients from the grains to the barrels used come from the Hudson Valley, with much of their grains being grown on their own 75-acre organic farm. From here they malt in house, use only indigenous yeasts by employing open-top fermenters, and then distill directly over flame which creates a richer mouthfeel, and barrel at a proof of 105 to allow them use only a small amount of water when proofing for bottling. The mash bill for the Excelsior Bourbon is 60% Corn, 30% Rye, and 10% malted barley, bottled at 96 proof creating a well balanced, flavorful, and unique spirit. Michelle DeWyngaert

Coppersea Hudson Valley Straight Rye Malt Whisky

Coppersea Distilling is on a mission to create truly farm-to-bottle whiskies, because it's about time the spirits world caught up to the food and wine world! One of the few distilleries in the US to actually grown much of their own grains with a 75-acre organic farm, and sourcing the rest from other trusted farmers in the Hudson Valley area. They were also the first NY distillery to do all of their malting in house, and they by using open-top fermenters they are entirely reliant on indigenous yeasts making this spirit a true Hudson Valley product. This bottling is unique in that the mashbill is 100% malted rye. This gives it an extra toasty, caramelized flavor compared to most rye whiskies. It is twice distilled in a direct-fired, copper alembic still, and barrel aged at a lower proof of 105 to require less dilution at bottling. Rich and enveloping on the palate with notes of roasted nuts, toasty cereal, caramel softening the peppery spice of the rye. Michelle DeWyngaert

English Whisky Co. Single Malt Whisky 'Classic' 750 ml

Scotland seems gets all the credit for great whiskey these days, but these days, much of the barley used its coming from England. The English Whiskey Co. Established the St. George's Distillery in 2006, 100 years after the last English distillery had closed, and now the oldest in the country. Their grain and water is all locally sourced, and their casks are aged on site, and bottled without coloring or chill-filtration (something that cannot be said for most Scotch whiskies). On the nose are notes of sweet vanilla bean, cinnamon, toasted cereal, fresh herbs, and roasted nuts. The palate has a medium-weight with notes of honey-drizzled pear, salty caramel, and toffee coated peanuts. A lovely single-malt for sipping over ice, for those who aren't a fan of too much peat.

Gortinore Distillers & Co. Natterjack Irirsh Whiskey Natterjack Irish Whiskey 750 ml

Natterjack Irish whiskey comes from the Gortinore Distillery which was founded in 2016 in a 150 year old wool mill in Kilmacthomas Waterford Ireland. It was then retrofitted with three copper pot stills. Founded by Aidan Mehigan and  his cousin Lisa Mehigan. Aidan’s interest in Whiskey started when he visited a distillery in Detroit then started studying distilling for himself. By chance he meet Jordan Via, Master distiller at Breckenridge Colorado and a vision was born. Intrigued by Irish whiskey but never having the chance to make one, Natterjack was created  to make something new combining Irish traditions and American techniques. This whiskey is made from 20% Barley and 80% corn and distilled 3 times. Aged for three years and one day in ex-bourbon Barrels then further aged for 6 months in virgin American oak charred at level 4 for another 6 months. With a light golden color and aromas of cereal, oats, vanilla, baked apple pie and slight caramel this leads way to a silky texture with baking spices a touch of oak and malt extract. I think this is a great example of what Irish whiskey should be like and its future.  Nelson Dejesus

This operation  began as a way to highlight the incredible grains of California and the time-honored tradition of making Rye in the US. The Sonoma Rye displays notes of spicy white pepper and stonefruits, but that small percentage of malted Rye really presents itself on the palate with a richer, toastier profile than  many domestic Ryes.

Sonoma Distilling Co. Cherrywood Smoked Bourbon

This Bourbon from the Sonoma Distilling Co. is for smoke-loving spirits enthusiasts! Though typically their spirits are made entirely from California grains, for this bottling they sourced  cherrywood-smoked barley from Wyoming which gives its unique sweet, smokey aroma, like mesquite bbq. The mash bill is 67% Corn, 20% Rye, and 13% Cherrywood-smoked Barley, and is aged for a minimum of two years in  new, charred oak barrels. This is fantastic in a Manhattan, or with a cube of ice after dinner!

This bottling is a single malt first matured in ex-Bourbon casks, then finished in Bodegas Baron Sherry barrels, before bottling at 43% ABV without chill-filtering or and coloring. The Sherry cask gives this peppery Irish Whiskey a softer, sweeter side with notes of dried figs and vanilla.

Wigle Pittsburgh Organic Chambers St Rye 750mL

It's always exciting for us each to select our own cask from Pittsburgh distillery, Wigle! This year we went with a Monongahela Rye that really jumps out of the glass and surprised us with how much flavor and complexity it had. A full five years of barrel aging with a mashbill of 67% Twin Parks Farm Rye, 16.5%  Weatherbury Farm Soft White Wheat, and 16.5% Briess Malted Barley, all organically farmed. This is a rich, full bodied rye with notes of dark, roasted pepper, toffee, a bit of dried lavender and clove. The palate has a bit more sweetness than the nose would imply, with notes of crème brûlée, banana, and a white peppery finish with a kick of heat. Drink this with a splash of water or use it for a powerful Sazerac on a cold winter's night. Michelle DeWyngaert
