Tequila ArtNOM Selección 1414 Reposado $55.00
Feliciano Vivanco began cultivating highland agave during Mexico's tumultuous post-revolutionary period of 1919-1929. In Don Feliciano's hometown of Arandas, Jalisco, the next four generations of the Vivanco family remained devoted to expanding the family's agave plantations and in 1994 the family dream of acquiring their own Arandas distillery was finally realized with the purchase of the "Destilería El Ranchito." With approximately 2,000 acres of estate-grown agave at their disposal, the Vivanco family has since become renown for producing rich, well-balanced tequilas created by marrying honored distillation traditions with modern innovation.

Ardbeg Uigeadail The Ultimate Islay Single Malt Scotch $83.57
In 2009, Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible named Ardbeg Uigeadail ‘World Whisky of the Year’ – in praise of its “utter silky brilliance” and “complexity on a level only a handful of distilleries in the world can even dream of reaching.”
Pronounced ‘Oog-a-dal’, it’s a special vatting that marries Ardbeg’s traditional deep, smoky notes with luscious, raisiny tones of old ex-Sherry casks. Ardbeg Uigeadail was voted by the 120,000+ strong Ardbeg Committee as their favourite Ardbeg.
Terroir Gin from St. George Spirits
Easily the Gin of Gins to hail from the United States, Terroir Gin from St. George Spirits is not only a great first foray into American Gin but also into craft gin with unique botanicals. Claimed to be a "forrest in your glass", with ultra woodsy notes of Douglas fir, California bay laurel, sage, and a hint of citrus. Terroir makes a great cocktail but stands out as being wonderful simply poured on the rocks.
