Duvel for the Holidays

 


Duvel is a unique blond beer, full of contrasts and surprising discoveries. Its golden-colored appearance, delicate sparkle and refined, silky taste with complex aromas hides an 8.5% alcohol content. Lush aromas include citrus, apple, hops and yeast. Flavors of pale malt appear throughout, with strong yeast, hops and alcohol notes. This Belgian strong golden Ale is a well-hopped beer, fruity and exceptionally aromatic. It has re-fermented in the bottle. Initially this beer was first called “Victory Ale” to commemorate the allied victory in the First World War.

This golden brew scored a whopping 96 points with Beer Advocate.  We have a limited number of these gift packs which include four 330ml bottles and beer goblet shaped perfectly to appreciate the aromas and flavors of any Belgian Ale.  Only $16.99 ea.

New Arrivals

We have new arrivals in the Tequila, Scotch Whisky, and Bourbon Whiskey departments:

 

1800 Essential Artist Series 3 Bottles are now in stock:

 

 

Tanteo infused Tequilas are triple distilled 100% Agave silver tequila infused with the essence of Mexico!


 We carry all three infusions:

Cocoa is made with light, medium and dark roast cocoa beans for a rich, unsweetened chocolate infusion that is perfect after dinner with a maduro cigar.

Jalapeño adds just the right amount of fire to this smooth, smokey silver tequila.  Perfect for adding excitement to boring old Margaritas.

Tropical is made with all-natural extracts of mango, pineapple, and guanabana (and just a kiss of jalepeño to balance the sweetness of the fruit.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Compass Box Whisky Company just released a beautiful gift box containing 50ml samples of their Signature Range! Click on the picture below to watch a series of short videos about the whiskies included in the set. 

 

 

Choosing the finest single malts and single grains from top distilleries, all aged in the highest quality oak casks, John Glaser creates small-batch whiskies with elegant richness, balance and purity across a spectrum of styles. Compass Box is a four-time Whisky Magazine ‘Innovator of the Year’ and has won over

60 medals and awards since 2000.

This delicious overview of Compass Box features a 5cl serving of each of their signature expressions: the fine, soft, fruity Asyla blend; the smooth, complex Highland malt Oak Cross; the rich, powerful, spicy Spice Tree; the peaty, subtly erudite Peat Monster; and their groundbreaking 100% grain whisky, Hedonism. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We waited for over 9 months, and finally, Eagle Rare 17 year old is here!

 

 

If you like a bolder, spicier American whiskey, then the Eagle Rare 17 is definitely for you. It’s not easy to find, and since it’s a limited edition release, it sells out quickly.

 

The previous edition of this bourbon was honored with a Gold Medal at the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The 2011 edition was distilled in the Spring of 1993 and has been aging on the 2nd, 3rd and 6th floors of Warehouses I and K.  After 18 years and 7 months of aging under its belt, it brings to the table notes of leather, vanilla and tobacco.
