(90-95) Points - Wine Enthusiast

Made with Idaho potato-based vodka and macerated with fruit for ten days, 44 North Mountain Huckleberry is a playful spirit that encompasses all of the mouthwatering character of this uncommon fruit; if you've ever enjoyed blueberry vodka, this will become a new favorite.

The 86 Co Cana Brava Panama Rum The 86 Co. Cana Brava Panama Rum (750ml)


4 Stars / "Highly Recommended" - F. Paul Pacult's Spirits Journal
Created from sugar cane grown in the mineral-rich volcanic soil of Panama, Cana Brava is produced in the abandoned "Carta Blanca" style which inspired so many classic cocktails like the Daiquiri, El Presidente, Cuba Libre and Mojito. Cana Brava is expertly distilled at Las Cabres Distillery by Master Distiller and former Minister of Cuban Rum, Francisco "Don Pancho" J. Fernandez, then matured for three years in a combination of new, un-charred American oak and used American Whiskey barrels. The spirit was then carbon filtered and shipped to the Charbay Distillery in California where it was cut down to proof with pristine water from a well in Mendocino County. The result is a perfectly mixable light rum with complex aromas and flavors of sugar cane, citrus fruit, fresh grass, honey, coconut and molasses, complemented by notes of oak, vanilla, cacao butter and dark chocolate.

After distillation, the gin was shipped to the Charbay Distillery in California where it was cut down to proof with pristine water from a well in Mendocino County.

Aberlour a'bunadh Single Malt Scotch Whisky Aberlour a'bunadh Non-Chillfiltered Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)


(96-100) Points - Wine Enthusiast
Aberlour a'bunadh is matured in Spanish oak Oloroso Sherry casks, the rarest and most precious casks used for maturation. Bottled at cask strength, a'bunadh has slightly smoky aromas laced with red apples. Since it is bottled without the use of chill-filtering methods, a richer mouthfeel and flavor complexity is achieved. Buttery and creamy on the palate, intense fruit flavors blend beautifully with chocolate and orange notes. The warming finish is slightly peaty with hints of honey and spice.

Amaro CioCiaro Liqueur Amaro CioCiaro Liqueur (750ml)


(90-95) Points - Wine Enthusiast
Originally produced in 1873 from a carefully guarded botanical recipe, Amaro CioCiaro is a a deliciously bittersweet Italian liqueur. Though most often enjoyed as a digestivo, Amaro CioCiaro's earthy, herbal character makes it a great cocktail component; we've heard rumors that it's a solid substitute for the original Amer Picon formulation.
