New Arrivals Today

A couple of fun new items that just landed today.  We've been anxiously awaiting their arrival:

Tequila Tapatio 1L $29.99 - "Tapatio" is a word that refers to a man from Jalisco, the Tequila-producing state in Mexico. In this case, it refers to Don Felipe Camarena, who opened the La Alteña distillery in 1937 where his grandchildren now make Tapatio tequila. The family has roots of making tequila that reach back to the 1800s, but the family's destillery was destroyed during the Mexican Revolution. The blanco is wonderfully vibrant with plenty of spice and a clean finish.  Wonderful for sipping or for a killer margarita.

Charbay R5 White Whiskey $49.99 - Marko from Charbay distillery in St. Helena bought 6,000 gallons of the famous Racer 5 IPA a few years back and decided to make whiskey out of it.  The aged expression spent over a year in stainless steel tank and really captures the hoppy flavor of the ale in a clean, vibrant white dog version.  A wonderful crossover for the beer geek/whiskey geek.

Charbay R5 Aged Whiskey $69.99 - Marko from Charbay distillery in St. Helena bought 6,000 gallons of the famous Racer 5 IPA a few years back and decided to make whiskey out of it.  The aged expression spent over a year in new oak barrels to soften up the palate, but the hoppy goodness of the ale still shines through.  A wonderful crossover for the beer geek/whiskey geek

Bunnahabhain Toiteach Peated Single Malt Whisky $85.99 - The first heavily-peated whisky to ever hit the U.S. directly from Bunnahabhain, the Toiteach is an unchillfiltered small production offering from the most underrated distillery on Islay.  Oily and resinous, with lively phenolic notes, the nose is floral and peppery, while the palate is thick and buttery.  A fantastic new expression from a distillery with a lot to prove.
