Camut NV Calvados Pays d'Auge 6 ans d'âge

We have a wonderful customer who drinks a fair share of brandy and prefers the six year expression to the more exclusive bottlings--his preference is not unfounded. Camut 6 has delicious, green apple fruit with a hint of vanilla. A touch of oak smoke is there, but fruit is really the focus of this spirit. Six years may not sound like a long time, but trust us, it’s plenty. John Rankin

Capovilla Grappa di Bassano 750ml

Capovilla spirits are truly labors of love. The Bassano bottling consists of pommace from a variety of grapes from Vicenza. The secret to the rich, broad flavors is the rare still that Vittorio Gianni Capovilla uses. Called a bain-marie still, it heats the pommace at low temperatures to maintain the grape flavors and not create the offensive, alcoholic tones that mars many more commercial Grappa productions. We are extremely happy that Jan d'Amore has decided to import these spirits, and strongly recommend that Grappa and Eau-de-vie fans try them. JR

The 'Kirschwasser' is made with dark, sweet table cherries from Oregon and Washington which are pressed,  fermented to dryness, and distilled before bottling at 40% ABV.

Cobra Fire Eau de Vie de Raisin Domaine d'Esperance

Unaged brandy does not get nearly enough love these days! Cobrafire came about as a result of a tasting at the Domaine d'Esperance where they were able to try a sample of the brandy straight from the still before it went to barrel. They couldn't believe how delicious it was as is, convinced the distillers to bottle it on it's own for PM Spirits, and so Cobrafire was born. The base is a blend of Folle Blanche and Baco Blanche, distilled once and then bottled with no water added at 51.3% ABV. The name would suggest that this is particularly hot and rough around the edges, but the truth is it's actually really clean and well made. Michelle DeWyngaert

Dudognon 10 Year Old Cognac Grande Champagne 'Reserve'

The Dudognon Reserve is one of the best values in Cognac. Made without additives or coloring, it's a pale gold color with subtle citrus and white fruit aromas. The palate is clean and long with tea, earth, citrus and spice. Far superior to the brand-name VS or VSOP blends and really worth trying. John Rankin

Gourry de Chadeville Cognac Grande Fine Champagne Overproof

From one of the oldest estates in Cognac, established in 1619, comes this rather modern brandy! Rare for the spirits of this region, this bottle contains no additives, including coloring, caramel, or boise, and no chill-filtering. Made in the Premier Cru territory, Grande Fine Champagne, from a blend of the three grapes of Cognac, Ugni Blanc, Colombard, and Folle Blanche. It is co-fermented and then distilled in a wood-fired copper pot still to ensure that the most esters are preserved in the distillation. It's bottled relatively young, after three years, and overproof at 55% ABV making it perfect for cocktails. Sidecars are making a comeback these days, or try it in a Sazerac the way it used to be made! 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

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

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

A perfect choice for classic gin cocktails like a Negroni or Aviation, it also plays beautifully in a straightforward Martini. Make this your choice for an autumnal local gin! Oskar Kostecki

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

G'Vine 'Floraison' Gin 750ml

G'Vine is an unusual gin from the French distillery Maison Villevert. The distillate is based from grapes instead of grains as is more traditional, and the grape blossoms are vapor distilled through the neutral grape spirit. The grape base gives this gin a silkier, more viscous texture, and allows the Ugni Blanc blossom and juniper to shine. The aromas are distinctly floral and vinous which make it perfect for combining with Quintyne Blanc or other aromatized wines in a Vesper or a refreshing Martini! Michelle DeWyngaert

Hayman's London Dry Gin 750ml

Hayman's is the oldest gin-distilling family in London.They were founded by James Burrough in 1863. Sticking true to their roots using a 150 year old family recipe that has not changed, but stood the test of time creating a classic gin. With the use of three small copper pot stills and 24 hour maceration of 10 herbs and botanicals (juniper, lemon, orange, cassia cinnamon, Ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg, angelica root, orris root, coriander seed and licorice root) they create a citrus forward gin while still maintaining the high proof and spicy mid-palate of a classic dry gin. On the nose you get fresh citrus peel aromas with juniper and coriander. On the palate you get orange zest with fresh lemon rind, coriander, slight liquorice with a long dry juniper finish.

Mahon Spanish Gin 1 Liter

Xoriguer gin hails from Mahon on the island of Menorca in Spain and one of only three gins (along with Plymouth Gin and London Dry Gin) to have a geographic designation. Gin has a rich history on Menorca dating back to British occupation during the 18th century and is still made with the same traditional methods. This gin is made in wood-fired pot stills from a base spirit of grape distillate (as opposed to the more common grain-based distillate) and is rested in American oak barrels before bottling. This process gives this spirit decidedly fruity and floral aromatics as well as a softer, citrusy palate. For lovers of gin and tonics, try this for your next experiment! Tim Gagnon

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

Bordiga Vermouth di Torino Rosso

Pietro Bordiga turned his love of bartending into a passion for distilling by opening this distillery south of Turin near the Occitan Alps. Unlike many Vermouth di Torino labels, they produce their own vermouths, instead of just bottling/labeling them, and forage for many of the botanicals used in the mountains of their backyard. The rosso is based with Langhe Nebbiolo, Moscato, and Cortese, fortified with neutral grain spirit, and sweetened with sugar from Martinique. Definitely on the lighter, less sweet side of sweet vermouths, with a bright, earthy aroma and lots of freshness on the palate. 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 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.

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

Laurent Cazottes NV Noix du Pays D'Oc 375 ml

Laurent Cazottes is a true legend and benchmark for excellent eau-de-vie and fruit liquor. He farms his fruit trees and vines according to biodynamics, all varieties indigenous to the area, and waits until all of the fruit used is perfectly ripe, often dried on the ground for intense concentration of sugar and flavor, and then removes the skins, seeds, and stems from everything before pressing and fermenting. This is a true labor of love and the results are outstanding. This Noix du Pays d'Oc is made from fresh green walnuts added to a wine of Folle Noire, macerated for 14 months, then separated, pressed and distilled before being added back to the wine and added to a single barrel solera. Intensely nutty, rich and delicious. A few sips of this will be the perfect end to an evening. Michelle DeWyngaert

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

Little City Vermouth Sweet Vermouth 375ml

Created in Harlem and bottled by Finger Lakes Distilling, this is a great Sweet Vermouth that straddles feeling classic and modern. The base of both the sweet and dry Little City's is the hearty Cayuga White, a hybrid grape found in the Finger Lakes which lends these Vermouth's  a brighter acidity. 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

Mondino Aperitivo

One of my new favorites in the aperitvo category! Crafted in the Bavarian alps, based on the recipe their grandfather brought over from Italy, Mondino is a delicious, organic liqueur made with all locally grown herbs and botnicals and Bavarian spring water. The bitter oranges come from the Amalfi Coast, fresh rhubarb adds a tartness, gentian gives it a bitter tang, and dried hibiscus flower gives it its color, with nothing artificial added. The sugar added is at a minimum, so most of the sweetness comes from the ripe, juicy fruit. As this is on the less bitter end of the aperitivo spectrum, I recommend trying it in a refreshing spritz!

Oka Kura Sake Vermouth "Japanese Bermutto"

Though it may seem like a novelty in the US, Japan actually has a long history of adding herbs and botanicals to Sake in the same way aromatized wines have been made throughout Europe and beyond. The Oka Kura Bermutto is produced at the Tsustumi Distillery from 100% rice and fresh water from the Kuma river, acidified with Yuzu and Kabosu and then seasoned with Sancho peppercorn and Japanese Mugwort, which gives this vermouth just a touch of bitterness on the finish to round out the ripe, citrus flavor on the palate. The nose shows notes of ripe apricot, a bit of tropical fruit, and fresh sage. I would use this in place of Lillet or other blanc vermouths for a decidedly Japanese take on your next cocktail!

St. Agrestis Inferno Bitter 750ml

Brooklyn based distillery St. Agrestis designed this bitter aperitivo to be the perfect complement to gin and sweet vermouth for the ultimate negroni. They use all organic herbs, spices, and botanicals, high quality citrus, and do not add any colorings or artificial flavors. As the name suggests, this is certainly on the bitter end of the aperitivo spectrum!

Rum

Barrell Rum Private Release J700 65.9% abv 750ml

The word "unique" is overused, but I'm not really sure how else to describe this rum. The core component is 18-year-old pot-still Jamaican rum while the remainder of the blend (about 30%) is made up of Guyanese rum (21 years old), Barbados rum (12 years old) and a small quantity of Martinique rum (3 years old). These are blended together and then aged in a single amaro cask for a further six months. Pretty crazy.The nose is all fruit, smoke, and funk, and the Jamaican aspect really stands out. Notes of roasted pineapple, tropical fruit medley, baked apple, pear skin, banana, banana leaf, baking spice, nutmeg, vanilla, burnt sugar, treacle, a hint of burnt rubber (in that amazing Jamaican rum sense), vegetation, undergrowth, and crushed sugar cane. The palate is expansive, introducing all of those flavor components, but also adding a hint of bitterness, and an herbal component, especially on the finish. It ends on a really lovely bitter note (kind of like the song "Disintegration" by The Cure), but the incredibly complex finish just keeps going and going. I like it neat, though it is bottled undiluted at a whopping 65.9% abv, so a few drops of water softens the palate. Oskar Kostecki

Boukman Botanical Rum Haiti 45%

Boukman is a classic Haitian 'clairin trempè' or spiced rhum honoring the great Dutty Boukman who led the slaves 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

Foursquare Nobiliary Barbados Rum Aged 14 Years

Another exceptional release from Foursquare! This 14 year old rum spends its entire life aging in ex-bourbon casks, though the lack of a cask finish is not a detraction from complexity. One of the more intense recent releases (and not just in abv!) this is a rich and full-bodied rum that exudes a lot of style. Notes of  raisin, sultana, dried figs, candied apple, ginger, ginger snaps, baking spice, vanilla, shaved coconut, dark honey, something slightly musty, worn leather and pipe tobacco all interplay on the very complex nose. The palate introduces some dried apricot and other stone fruit, and almost a hint of orange marmalade, along with the savory and spice notes. Supremely delicious, this is also a fascinating continuation of where the Foursquare releases are going, with an added layer of fruitiness and lift to this bottle. Foursquare keeps setting new benchmarks for quality. Oskar Kostecki

From the island of Minamidaito in Okinawa, Japan, comes this full-flavored, potent rum made from locally and sustainably  grown sugar cane (which means production is limited  as the island is subjected to not-infrequent typhoons). The cane juice is converted to molasses and then distilled once and then aged for three years. Try this on its own with a squeeze of yuzu, or better yet, a yuzu daiquiri!

Holmes Cay 2009 Barbados Port Cask Rum 56%

The curators of Holmes Cay are on a mission to convince you that rum can be as exquisite, as unique, and as valuable as any single-malt Scotch. This single-cask selection goes a long way towards that end. The 2009 Barbados rum comes from the Foursquare Rum Distillery, a blend of column and pot-still distillations, aged for eight years in Barbados, then two in the UK, and a final year finished in Port Casks in New York. As with all Holmes Cay rums it is bottled at cask-strength (56% in this case) but holds it's heat deceptively well. Notes of sweet cherry, coconut, cinnamon, and banoffee pie linger on the palate long after you take a sip. There's a touch of tannin from the oak to reign in the richness of this rum, and a kick of heat on the finish, which mellows out with just a drop or two of water. Michelle DeWyngaert

Privateer Single Cask American Rum The Queen's Share 55.4%

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. It is then bottled at 55.4% ABV with no additives and no filtering. One of the few rums to earn 5 stars in Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal, his review states that, "flavor and quality heights rarely seen in domestic rums and only a handful of Caribbean region rums as it all comes down to perfect balance between alcohol, acidity, wood usage, and flawless distillation."I couldn't agree more. This rum is rich, concentrated, and has a spicy kick at the finish. Perfect on its own, or it makes a mean old fashioned! Michelle DeWyngaert

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

Rum Fire Hampden Estate Jamaican Overpr 63% ABV

Our friends over at a fellow retailer sometimes just put "!!!!!!!!!" in product descriptions, and I'm tempted to copy them on this one, as there are almost no words to describe Rum Fire. Clocking in at a huge ester level (over 500 ppm) and bottled at 63%, it might rip your face off and kick you in the privates, but you know, you just might like it. Untamed and bombastic, this is funky rum at its finest, guaranteed to take you on a journey. A hate it or love it scenario. An angel-demon from bygone days shredding sweet and funky heavy wattage straight to your soul. I can't help myself, I'm utterly in love. Oskar Kostecki

Velier Clairin Sajous Sugarcane Rum Haiti 54.3%

Michal Sajous makes this wonderful clairin in the small town of Saint-Michel de L'Attalaye, situated on a plateau surrounded by mountains, about a hundred kilometers north from Port-au-Prince. He grows several different varieties of cane, with the Cristalline being used for this particular bottling. Fermented in stainless steel with all indigenous yeast, this a beautifully mineral expression of fresh-pressed sugarcane juice rum, more effusive and intense than anything I've had from Martinique or Guadaloupe, but still carrying a similar flavor profile. Perfumes of dried flowers, tropical fruit, and the hallmark green grassiness is supported by the more herbal and dense aromas of tea tree oil and eucalyptus. There is an undercurrent of salinity, and the pronounced acidity keeps this fresh and lifted. Drink this neat or make the most phenomenal Ti' Punch. This is the second batch to hit New York, this one coming in at 54.3%! Oskar Kostecki

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

Tequila

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.

Great as a sipper, this finds a perfect home in cocktails,from Margaritas and Palomas to a Tequila Old-Fashioned. Oskar Kostecki

Caballito Cerrero Destillado de Agave Jalisco Blanco "Azul" 46%

'El Caballito Cerrero', meaning 'the untamed horse', began in opposition to Herradura (the horseshoe), when Don Alfonso Jiménez Rosales split from the famed Tequila distillery. Today this spirit is still distilled by the same family in the original Santa Rita Factory where the operation began in 1950, and the family history of making agave-based spirits goes back 15 generations. They chose to use the 'distillation of Agave' designation forgoing the certification to be declared a Tequila,  because they insist on maintaining the traditions of their ancestors, rather than conforming to the modern definition and stream-lined practices. Their destillado is made entirely with estate-grown agave, the water comes from a nearby spring, the fruit is cooked in steam-powered ovens, then distilled in small pot stills. This is a great opportunity to taste Tequila the way it used to be made. Michelle DeWyngaert

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.

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

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.

Mal Bien (Félix Ramírez) Yogana, Ejutla, Oax. Mezcal Artesanal Espadín 46.69%

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 2018 Miahuatlán, Oaxaca Espadín (Candido García Cruz)

Neta works with a group of mezcaleros from around Miahuatlán, Oaxaca. The maestro behind this release is Candido García Cruz, who has been distilling for decades. Ninety Espadín (Agave angustifolia) plants were left ‘capón, or quiotudo’ (the plant’s flowering stalk is cut early and the plant remains unharvested, concentrating sugars in the piña) for a full year before harvesting. The piñas roasted for two weeks in an earthen oven, and rested for a week before being broken down by a mix of machete and mechanical mill. This was followed by a two-day rest for the fibers and then a sixteen-day fermentation in cypress vats and a double distillation in a copper pot still, proofed to 49.15% ABV, 900L produced, under 200L of which made it to us in NYC. Harvest was in 2015, and there is an inherent complexity and a subtle balance, with a mix of florals, cinnamon and lemon oil and creamy mouthfeel, this is a truly elegant Espadín. Cari Bernard

Rancho Tepua uses the Agave Pacifica variety (once, the only type permitted now the designation has expanded), harvested by hand, cooked for three days in a brick pit and then fermented with native yeasts. 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

A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml

"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.

Barrell Whiskey Private Release BH32 Cask Strength Whiskey Madeira Finish 5551%

The BH32 is a private release whiskey from the Barrell Craft Spirits team. A blend of Kentucky whiskies, with the bulk coming from 18 year old barrels, finished in a single Malmsey Madeira cask and bottled at cask strength. As with all of Barrell's micro-blends, there is not much to go around, so we were very happy to snag a few of this intensely flavored whiskey. The Madeira really comes through on the nose, notes of hazelnut, pecan, ripe bosc pear, lemon zest, and fresh wheat. On the palate the sweetness of roasted, caramelized nuts hits up front, followed by the grip of wood tannins, and finishes with a long, lingering warmth. Opens up nicely with few drops of water, but is surprisingly balanced for the high-proof. Michelle DeWyngaert

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

Sasanokawa Shuzo Sasakawa 3 Year Old Whisky

In 1946, one of the oldest sake breweries in northeast Japan (established in 1765)  expanded their operation to whiskey making. As water is one of the most essential ingredients in whiskey-making, their access to the pure melted snow from the surrounding mountains of Fukushima, Japan makes this spirit unique. The Sasakawa Fine Whisky is a blend of 50% malt and 50% grain pot-distilled whiskies, aged separately in used Bourbon barrels, blended together and then aged for three years, bottled at 80 proof.

Sonoma Distilling Co. Rye Whiskey

The mashbill is 80% California Rye, and 20% Malted Rye from the UK, which are double-pot distilled in the Sonoma Distilling Co. facility in the Bay Area. 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.

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

Wilderness Trail Kentucky Straight Small Batch (100 Pf)

Fermentation gurus, Shane Baker and Pat Heist, decided to put all of their best advice as consultants to work on their own line of whiskies with Wilderness Trail. This single-barrel selection is unique in the Bourbon world for a few reasons. For one, it has one of the highest concentrations of wheat in the mashbill at 24%, with 64% corn, and 12% malted barley. It's also made as a sweet mash, which means instead of using leftover mash from the previous batch to help along the fermentation a la sour mash, each batch is entirely new. The fact that their first batch out of the gate as new distillers is Bottled in Bond is also pretty remarkable because they had to age it for at least four years. This one on the less sweet end of the Bourbon spectrum, and at 50% ABV it certainly has some perceptible heat on the palate. Michelle DeWyngaert
