Capovilla Moscato Fior d'Arancio 375ml

This is a single variety grappa bottling featuring the wonderfully aromatic "Uva Moscota Fior d'Arancio." Vittorio Gianni Capovilla uses his rare bain-marie still to slowly distill and preserve the lively honey and citrus qualities of the grape. Grappa fans will note the extreme purity and freshness of the spirit and applaud Jan d'Amore for bringing it to the American market. John Rankin

Chateau de Briat 2000 Bas Armagnac Bacco

The 2000 Bacco fully exudes the traditional Château de Briat house style: decadent, yet complex and structured, with a focus on new oak. Again, from the diary of John Rankin: On the nose it is luscious with sweet caramel, the chewy soft kind, and orange zest rising from the glass. On the palate it is rich and silky – very drinkable – with a touch of spice and a sugary milk chocolate finish. With this flavor profile and the château’s affinity for new oak, this would be a fantastic crossover spirit for Bourbon lovers! Tim Gagnon

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

Domaine d'Aurensan 2009 Armagnac-Ténarèze Single Cask

This is a particularly intriguing single-cask from Domaine d'Aurensan, a tiny estate run by the Rozès family in Ténarèze. A pretty standard 420 liter Gascon oak cask was filled in 2009 (from grapes from the same vintage, a warm and ripe year) and aged without topping-off for 10 years, upon which the barrel yielded only 110 liters of spirit. Bottled at a cask strength of 43%, there was some crazy evaporation that must have happened here, and it produced an Armagnac that is beguiling. Rich, full, and phenomenally viscous, the nose explodes with raisin, sultana, prune, walnut, dried cherries, dry spice, vanilla, nutmeg, and leather. The palate is complex, introducing more spice, nuttiness, and an herbal, slightly menthol character. An insanely long finish. It feels much older than the 10-year age statement, but also hasn't yet developed any balsamic-y rancio character you would associate with very old brandy. It's just bold, assertive, and terribly expressive. Oskar Kostecki

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 6 Year Old Calvados Pays d"Auge Kriek Cask Finish

Cantillon is perhaps the most famous producer of Belgian lambic (wild fermentation, sour) ales in the world, and their Kriek, a maceration and barrel aging of lambic and cherries, is a prized acquisition for  beer lovers across the world. This 6 year Calvados exhibits all the qualities of the fine apple brandies of the region, with wonderful notes of baking spice, apple peel, baked apple, and hints of caramel. Bottled at a slightly higher proof than usual, with a bit more punch. There is also the other aspect, with the Kriek cask adding a note of red fruit (cherry and currant) and raisins, especially on the finish. A charming and very fun bottle, which continues to delight every time I drink it.Oskar Kostecki

We are happy to be able to carry this independent producer's fantastic Cognac, and the 15-hectare estate that can trace its history back to 1610 is an exciting find. JR

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

Laurent Cazottes NV Goutte de Reine-Claude Brandy 375 ml

Laurent Cazottes is undoubtedly one of the finest distillers in the entire world. Farming  grapes and fruit trees biodynamically in the Tarn department in Southwest France, he is crafting some of the purest expressions of fruit brandy that I have ever tasted. This beautiful greengage plum (Reine-Claude in French) brandy comes from a small .7 hectare grove of ancient trees, and Laurent hand peels and de-seeds the fruit before fermenting and distilling. I've never had the pleasure of tasting greengage plums, this old heirloom variety is nearly extinct in the US, but this exceptionally crafted distillate more than makes up for it. A wonderful way to finish a meal, and a real treat! Oskar Kostecki

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

Through The Grapevine Francois Voyer Lot 93

The Chauchet-Voyer family has been farming vineyards and making Cognac in the limestone-rich terroir of Grande Champagne for the past five generations. This spirit comes from a single barrel filled in 1993 and aged for 25 years. Distilled on the lees, this is a powerful and broad-shouldered Cognac, with great density on the palate and notes of baked apples, poached pears, leather, baking spice, apricot marmalade, dried cherries, a hint of forest floor and balsamic. A beautiful expression of the richness that Cognac can deliver without the use of artificial color, added sugar, or boisé. Bottled at 45.9%. Oskar Kostecki

Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Gin 750ml

Todd Hardie began his career in beekeeping almost 50 years ago in Hardwick, Vermont, in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom. This part of the state is an agricultural hotbed focused on honey, milk, cheese, grains, and herbs with a strong focus on community and respect for the earth. With family distilling roots going back to the 1800s (John and William Hardie of Edinburgh started distilling whiskey in 1857, and the company still produces whiskey today), it’s no wonder that the current generation of Hardies began crafting artisanal spirits in this corner of the world. The Barr Hill Gin contains one notable ingredient that truly sets this spirit apart: raw honey. The raw honey is added just before bottling giving it a uniquely wild, floral nose that changes with each batch as the season dictates where the bees collect their pollen and propolis. It is a touch sweet and the juniper is well-integrated which makes this a unique crossover spirit for those unfamiliar with gin and a new frontier for those already initiated. Tim Gagnon

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

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

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

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

Byrrh, Violet Frères Grand Quinquina 375ml

Pronounced 'Beer', this is a unique tonic with roots in the Languedoc region of south-west France. Local red wine is infused with 10 botanicals, most apparent of which is the bitter quinine bark. Fans of vintage advertising should seach for Byrrh posters and they will be rewarded with over 100 years of signage, including rich Art Nouveau images.  The beverage itself should be enjoyed chilled, on its own or with soda water and a twist; it could also make a good addition to a Negroni or other classic coctails.

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

Forthave Spirits Amaro Marseille 375ml

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.

Like all of their spirits, these guys are serious about the ingredients they use and never add anything artificial. The coffee beans are roasted, go through carbonic maceration to bring out those bright, fruity notes, and then cold brewed. This will make the most perfect espresso martini, but also, you're going to want to just drink it straight. 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

The base for the rouge is a blend of Ugni Blanc and Chardonnay with a Merlot based Pineau des Charents.

St. Agrestis New York Amaro 750ml

Sommeliers Nicholas Finger and Fairlie McCollough started St. Agrestis in 2014 after a three month trip through Italy solidified their love for traditional, regional Amari. Everything is done in their warehouse in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY from the maceration of organic herbs, roots, and citrus in neutral base spirit to the short-term aging in whiskey barrels (sourced from the Van Brunt distillery in Brooklyn), and the addition of organic cane sugar followed by bottling and labeling. The sugar rounds out the classic bitter components of this Amaro making for an easy going yet complex and balanced digestif that begs to be consumed after dinner this Thanksgiving! Tim Gagnon

Barrell Rum Private Release J700 65.9% abv 750ml

The word "unique" get 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 Probitas Rum 750ml

A collaboration between two of the best rum distilleries in the world, Foursquare and Hampden Estate in Jamaica, Probitas is made of three components: a 2-year-aged Foursquare rum distilled on Coffey still, an unaged Foursquare Coffey still, and an unaged Hampden Estate pot-distilled rum. Opening with notes of creamy vanilla  and citrus on the nose, from the first sip this is rich and complex, incorporating the best of what both producers have to offer, with just enough funk from the Hampden distillate to make this very engaging. Tropical fruit, banana custard, notes of molasses and sugarcane are all present on the thick and oily palate. Sipping it neat isn't a problem, but cocktails is where this rum really shines. Will make the perfect Daiquiri! Oskar Kostecki

Hampden Estate Pure Single Jamaican Rum 46%

Rested in barrel for seven years in the tropical climate of Trelawny Parish in Jamaica, this is the first official distillery bottling of aged Hampden Rum, and we couldn't be more pleased to see it. The nose is a medley of tropical fruit and savory, slightly vegetal notes. The signature "funkiness", or hogo (a term adopted from the French haut goût, or high taste, used to describe the je ne sais quoi bold character and aromatic mélange of high ester rums) apparent in all Hampden distillates is front and center. The palate is assertive, with more pronounced savory and vegetal character, intermingling with notes of coconut, charcoal, roasted meat, rubber (in the best possible way) and slightly decaying pineapple and banana.

Privateer 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

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

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. Oskar Kostecki

Wigle Landlocked Spiced (like spiced rum) 750

In the not too distant past, spiced rum was a spirit to avoid at all costs. Producers took an already sweet product (rum,) added artificial vanilla and citrus flavors, cinnamon, and then even more sugar to create a beverage made to appeal to the sweet tooth of an undergraduate student. We now have choices of spiced rum that are actually delicious and actually spicy. Wigle’s entry starts with a distillate of buckwheat honey – a tribute to the local grain known for its earthy, woodsy flavor. Next, a slew of ingredients are infused into spirit. Wigle uses vanilla bean, roasted orange peel, cocoa nibs, and cinnamon for a drink that is aromatically very complex, and downright spicy. This peppery kick makes the spirit an ideal partner for ginger beer, or a feisty member of a punch bowl. John Rankin

Scotch Malts

Amrut NV Single Malt Whisky Peated Kambipuru Bengaluru India (46%

Amrut is the oldest whiskey distillery in India, established in 1948. It is made from 100% peated, Scottish malted barley and then aged in Bangalore in a mixture of new oak and ex-bourbon casks. It's aged for four years in Bangalore, which, because of the extremely warm, humid climate there, is equivalent to roughly twelve years aging in Scotland. If you love peated whiskey, this is definitely a must-try!

Bunnahabhain Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18 Year 750ml

Bunnahabhain is the only distillery on Islay that specializes in mostly unpeated or very lightly peated whiskies. On the other hand, they are masters of sherry cask aging, and the dried fruit, toffee and baking spice quality of this malt integrates perfectly with its coastal, slightly saline character. Terrific value for a Scotch single malt of this age and quality. Oskar Kostecki

Glengyle Distillery Kilkerran 12 Year Single Malt Whisky Campbeltown Non-Chill Filtered

Glengyle Distillery was first operational between 1873 and 1925. After it shuttered it was turned into a rifle range, and though there were a few attempts to reopen, none were successful until the year 2000, when it was bought by Mr. Hedley Wright, owner of Springbank and patron of Campbeltown. Using all Scottish barley and floor-malting at Springbank, Kilkerran shares many similarities with its neighbor, though is slightly lighter in body and less idiosyncratic, most likely due to the brand new stills that were installed upon reopening. Aged in both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry cask, this is the first 12 year age statement released and is well worth seeking out. A whiff of peat leads to a palate of toffee, butterscotch, citrus peel and a slight salinity. Out of the dozens of bottles in my whiskey cabinet, I find myself reaching for this one with frequency. We are expecting many great bottlings from this new/old distillery from Campbeltown. Oskar Kostecki

Springbank 10 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky Campbeltown 750ml

From the peninsula of Campbeltown comes the historic Springbank. Campbeltown once was the thriving center of Scottish distillation, now Springbank is one of the few left. A truly artisanal operation that employs their own floor maltings. Springbank uses a light peating for a smoky island character. The malt is actually distilled two and a half times, so there is a lightness that, when combined with the rugged terrain, creates a complex scotch that is very unique. Most of the malt was raised in Bourbon barrels for a pure, dry expression. (46% ABV) JR

Tapatio Reposado is how aged tequila should be. The notes of spice and pepper coming from oak aging integrate wonderfully with the natural sweetness and tropical fruit quality of the Blue Weber agave. As you take more time with this tequila, it reveals hints of caramel, cacao, toasted coconut and floral perfume. A grassy undertone leads to a crisp and mineral finish. Great as a sipper, this finds a perfect home in cocktails,from Margaritas and Palomas to a Tequila Old-Fashioned. Oskar Kostecki

5 Sentidos Tío Pedro Santa Catarina Minas Espadín

'Tío' Pedro Hernandez Arellanes is a maestro mezcalero, with over fifty years of distilling under his belt. After many of those years working for other distilleries, he was able to build his own palenque 'La Esperanza' adjacent to his house in Santa Catarina Minas. His clay pot stills are lined with shaggy 'bagasse' (post-distillation agave fiber); opposite to the stills are his open-top pine fermentation tinas. Near where the roasted piñas rest, a trough (known as a canoe) is carved into the floor, to hold the piñas as they are crushed by large, very heavy, mallets. Pedro does have a tiny mechanical shredder, but prefers not to use it because he isn't impressed by the resulting spirit. Cultivated Espadín (A. angustafolia) is hand-harvested and cut down to roast in earthen oven. After roasting, the piñas are crushed by mallet and the fibers are mixed with well water to ferment in the tina. Distillation is twice through clay pot still. Proofed to 49% with tails, this batch of Espadín yielded 66L (~88 btls). We were able to taste a recently distilled batch of Espadín when we visited Pedro and his wife Andrea in September of this year and were impressed by the already complex (if a bit rowdy) spirit and could tell it had a bright future ahead. The batch in NY has had time to settle into this complexity. Banana skin and nut brittle, chilis in vinegar, banana, dark chocolate, balanced by a green grass and bright minerality. Fantastic!

Farolito Papalometl 45.26%

The brand Farolito comes from batches selected by Ulises Torrentera, owner of the legendary In Situ Mezcaleria in Oaxaca City. This batch is distilled by mezcalero Virgilio Ramirez in the town of Santa Maria Ixcatlan. The papalometl (agave potatorum) was crushed by hand, fermented in bovine leather vats, and distilled twice in clay stills. The natural sweetness and concentration of sugars from the agave is beautifully contrasted with an underlying savory characteristic. Vivid tropical fruit is coupled with herbs, earthiness and umami. The palate is rich, viscous and mouth-coating. A very intriguing mezcal, and one you want to spend some time with. A great introduction of the In Situ range to the New York market. Oskar Kostecki

Mal Bien (Chucho + Poncho Sánchez) Ocotlán, Oaxaca Jabalí 47.46%

Jabalí is notoriously difficult to ferment and distill. The higher level of saponins in the plant causes a large amount of foam to be produced at both stages, which usually means two things are possible: one is you lose some of your fermenting liquid to foamy overflow, and the other is the lyne arm of your still can break from the pressure from the foam. Sometimes three distillations are needed to come to a clear, more refined product, and sometimes people will retrofit their still to protect against the breakage possibility. Needless to say Jabalí a bit of a challenge, and we don't see much in the states in general. For this bottling, the piñas are roasted in earthen pit for three days followed by a five-day rest before being broken down by mechanical shredder and then smashed further by horse-drawn tahona. Fermentation is in pine tina with well water. Brothers Poncho and Chucho Sánchez have been able to pull off only double distilling the Jabalí by under-filling their copper alembic still for each pass. Final proofing to 47.46% ABV is with puntas and colas (April 2018). Green olive and a bit of vinyl, pollen, and bread yeast, greengage plum and a touch of volitility. The palate is high-toned with notes of pink peppercorn and brine, with roasted carrot, nutmeg and dark chocolate on the finish, such an enjoyable spirit we're excited to see where this bottle goes.

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).

Mal Bien (Victor + Emanuel Ramos) Miahuatlán, Oaxaca Coyote 49.94%

I'm not sure we've ever had a mezcal from Victor and Emanuel Ramos we haven't loved. The father-son duo is just a constant source of excellent spirits, based in Miahuatlán, Oaxaca. The term 'Coyote' is used quite loosely in regards to agave, and doesn't always mean the same thing depending on where the plant is coming from. In this case, it's a hybrid, a Madrecuixe (A. karwinskii) that has been pollinated by a Tobalá (A. potatorum). Piñas roast in earthen pit for six days, followed by a week-long rest,  they are tahona-milled, and fermentation is in Cypress tina with well water. Distillation is twice in copper alembic still with refrescadera (no plates), and final proofing to 49.94% ABV is with puntas and colas (May 2019).  Burnt squash, bay leaf, celery salt, and a light mustiness out of the glass. Bright minerality, cardamom pod, peanut brittle and warm cinnamon are loud and clear on the palate. Very complex and punchy and should be fantastic with more time open to mix with air in the bottle.

Mezcal Real Minero Espadin 2016 750ml

The Espadín from Real Minero is consistently one of our favorite examples of this particular agave. Harvested in Santa Caterina Minas and distilled in the traditional clay pot stills of the area, the usual tropical fruit and hot rock mineral flavor profile of agave Espadin is accentuated with and earthy and savory edge. Real Minero is now expertly run by Graciela Angeles and her brother Edgar, after the passing of their father, the legendary mezcalero Don Lorenzo Angeles in 2016. We're incredibly excited to offer this particular batch of Real Minero Espadín from the 2016 harvest,  one of the last distilled by Don Lorenzo! After a few years in glass, it is drinking beautifully, with a great palate-coating viscosity and weight added to the usual qualities of Real Minero Espadín. For all mezcal lovers out there, this is a bottle not to be missed. Oskar Kostecki

Mezcal Real Minero Mezcal Ancestral Marteño/Barril

The ancestral batches from Real Minero are always indelible experiences. For a mezcal to qualify as an "ancestral" it must adhere to the strictest methods of traditional production: the agave must be crushed by hand (usually by mallets in a wooden canoe), fermentation must include the agave fibers, and distillation must be done on clay pot stills. Real Minero usually release their mezcals under the "mezcal artesanal" designation, meaning they adhere to all the ancestral methods, except they crush the agave using a tahona (large stone wheel) instead of by hand. The ancestral designation is reserved for the very special releases, and that is the case with this beautiful blend of agave Marteño and agave Barril. One of the most intense Real Minero's we've ever seen, clocking in at 53.38% abv. Viscous and incredibly mouth-coating on the palate, this is wildly complex, with a combination of earthy and funky characteristics blending with an intense tropical fruit quality; mango, pineapple, apricot, mirabelle plum, and a hint of cherry. An incredible batch! Oskar Kostecki

The clay pot shows incredibly well in this particular batch, not overbearing but present, and harmoniously integrated. Savory notes of hazelnuts, raw cacao, and barbecue mesh with sweeter hints of dried apricots, raisins, brown sugar, and cocoa butter. I also find mint, dried oregano and wet gravel. During the Real Minero fiesta, in between all the dancing bodies, pounding music, and smell of charred meat, this was the bottle I found myself most often reaching for. Oskar Kostecki

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

Mezcalosfera de Mezcaloteca Miahuatlan Madrecuixe

The first release we've seen from Job Cortés, the son of Margarito Cortés, famed maestro mezcalero from Miahuatlan and the author of some of our favorite Mezcalosfera releases of that past few years. As with most bottlings from Mezcalosfera (the export label for the Oaxacan mezcal bar Mezcaloteca) this Madrecuixe release is a tiny batch of 120 liters, with only a handful of bottles making it to New York; we tried to get as much as we possibly could! This mezcal was very impressive, with a vibrancy to both the nose and the palate, showing notes of citrus, lime, lime peels, herbs, purple flowers, and a hint of earthiness. The palate is punchy, lively and intense, with more floral character and a hint of tanginess and acidity. A beautiful example of agave Karwinskii from Miahuatlan. Oskar Kostecki

Neta 2015 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

Neta 2018 Miahuatlán, Oaxaca Bicuixe (Candido García Cruz)

Candido García Cruz and his family harvested 300 wild ‘capón/quiotudo’ (see Neta Espadín note) Bicuixe (Agave karwinskii) from the red, rocky soils of the Sierra Sur region. The process remains similar to the Espadín, albeit on a faster timeline: conical earthen oven roast for eight days, three-day rest before machete/axe/mill crushing, one day of rest for the fibers, and fermentation in four cypress vats lasting over eight days. Twice-distilled in copper pot still. I feel like I need more time with this, because just a taste was not enough. Banana peel, green cardamom pod, loquat, preserved lemon and florals, the palate is a mix of sunflowers and savory herbs and I wish I had better notes. More forthcoming after I buy the bottle and take it home for more 'research'! Cari Bernard

Barrel Bourbon Batch #022 Cask Strength 5 Years Old 58.3%

Barrel Craft Spirits, based in Louisville, Kentucky,  is known for their unique and distinctive blended Whiskies and Rum, always bottled at cask strength. The '#22' is a blend from five year old barrels of both Indiana and Kentucky straight Bourbons. This is a bourbon for sipping by the fire, wearing a red-velvet smoking jacket. There's a bit of a smokiness on the nose, and scent that makes me think of mahogany and caramel. Beware, this is very high-proof so it packs a punch, probably best to put a few drops of water in at least. 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

Wigle Pittsburgh Organic Chambers St Rye 375mL

The words of Mark Twain still ring true in 2017: "Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough." Our seasonal single cask collaboration with Wigle from Pittsburgh is finally here! Wigle makes a wonderfully spicy and earthy rye whiskey, and this year's expression is no different. Gingerbread and candied orange dominate the nose, while the warming palate of this nearly cask-strength whiskey leads to more savory notes of nutmeg, clove, cedar and white pepper. This is perfect for sipping neat, but I wouldn't hesitate letting it loose in a Sazerac! Oskar Kostecki

Wigle Pittsburgh Organic Chambers St Rye 750mL

This year's single-cask of Wigle rye is an absolute powerhouse! Put into a 53 gallon, Char Level 3 barrel on March 6th, 2014 at 125 proof (the maximum allowed under law) and emptied on October 11th, 2018, this whiskey spent 4.5 years aging in Wigle's Pittsburgh warehouse, more than double our previous releases.  It was distilled from 95% rye and 5% malted barley, sourced from local farms undergoing organic certification. With a little wider cuts taken, this whiskey is rich and ebullient both on the nose and palate, with notes of rye spice, baking spices, vanilla, caramel, dried apricots, grilled peaches, burnt orange peel, dried cherries, cherry pit, spun sugar, perfumed cedar, and a slightly earthy, mossy quality. Incredibly complex and with a beautiful rich texture, this drinks really well at the 55% abv, but a few drops of water really help bring out some of the fruitier notes, a whiff of honey, and a delicate floral note. This rye has a very long and lingering finish, and is a wonderful way to round off an evening. Oskar Kostecki

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
