...and For Dessert

If you're in need of something sweet and delicious with your holiday dessert course, look no further than the above two products. We've got another allocation of Reserve de Lillet in stock, as well as a new cinnamon liqueur from SF. I've actually tried to both blog and send an email about the Cannella cordial twice previously, but both times the product sold through before I was able to get a notice out. Mr. Cinnamon apparently has a huge following for this stuff.

Reserve Jean de Lillet $39.99 - The Reserve Jean de Lillet is made from single-vintage Sauternes (a blend of 80% Semillon, 15% Sauvignon Blanc, and 5% Muscadelle), mixed with orange liqueur flavored with Spanish sweet orange peels and bitter oranges from Haiti, plus 'a secret blend of fruit liqueurs produced in Lillet's distillery' and quinine. The blend is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels that are 225 liters.

Cannella Cinnamon Cordial 375ml $24.99 - Local Bay Area resident, Joe Cannella, has always been known as Mr. Cinnamon (cannella being the Italian word for the baking spice), but now he's taking his heritage literally. Using aged brandy from California's Central Valley, Joe has created an intensely-flavored cinnamon liqueur, adding in two types of the eponymous spice and a bit of cane sugar to balance out the alcohol. The result is an inspiring new cinnamon liqueur that greatly expands the horizons of whisky cocktails, hot toddies, coffee drinks, and just about anything you can add cinnamon to. An absolute holiday must-have.
