What we're drinking 

July is Gin Month!

 

Plymouth Gin, 41.2% ABV, England  plymouth gin bottle

750ml - $33.99 - NOW $29.99

Plymouth Original Strength is a unique, protected style of gin originating from the city of Plymouth, South West England. Since 1793 it has been distilled from a unique blend of 7 botanicals, soft Dartmoor water and pure grain alcohol at the historic Black Friars Distillery - the oldest working distillery in England

 

The Taste:  Plymouth Gin has a great depth of flavour with deep earthy notes and a wonderfully fresh juniper and lemony bite. It has a slight sweetness with extraordinary concentration and complexity. No single botanical dominates the overall flavour. The finish is long and dry.

 

Bombay Sapphire London Dry Gin  bombay sapphire bottle

47% ABV, England, 1.75L - $49.99 - NOW $43.99

Bombay is passionate about producing the finest gin possible; which is why the creation of Bombay Sapphire is truly unique. Whilst ordinary gins boil their botanicals directly in the spirit to achieve their flavor, the taste of Bombay Sapphire is created through the Vapor Infusion process.

 

The 10 precious botanicals used in their gin are held separate from the spirit in perforated copper baskets, and when the heated vapors rise, the distinctive flavor of the botanicals are released. The result? A complex aromatic liquid that delivers a broader, more balanced flavor.

 

Right Gin, 40% ABV, Sweden  right gin bottle

750ml - $31.99 - NOW $27.99

It is gorgeous nude and mixes beautifully - which is to say it makes a fine martini and is just as good in a mixed cocktail. The grain base is corn, which lends an accessible sweetness while the finish is crisp and clean. The unique blend of botanicals is enhanced with a twist of orange, which brings up the bergamot sourced from Sicily. Its dress evokes sophistication, elegance and the notion that there is a right way to do everything. Right is blended outside Malmo, Sweden near its water source at Lake Bolmen.

 

Corsair Barrel Aged Gin, 46% ABV, Kentucky  cosair barrel aged gin bottle

750ml - $42.99 - NOW $37.99

To craft this limited release spirit, they have rested their signature vapor basket gin in charred oak barrels previously used to age their spiced rum.  This aging has mellowed the gin and introduced notes of oak, sweetness and spice.  The melding of these flavors makes an absolutely and deliciously complex gin that can be enjoyed straight.

 

Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic 

17oz $3.99 NOW $3.49 - 4pk bottles $6.99 NOW $5.99

If you have been under the impression that tonic water is just tonic water, Fever-Tree's tonics will quickly change your mind. The trick to developing a great tonic is in the balance of flavors. Quinine is a product of the Cinchona tree's bark, which is harvested on an eight year cycle. It is the source for that bitter kick in tonic water, and to have a successful tonic it must be counteracted by other ingredients. In the case of Fever Tree's tonics, citrus and sugars are sent in to do the job.

 

2011 d'Arenberg The Hermit CrabViognier/Marsanne,  hermit crab wine bottle

Australia 750ml $17.99 NOW $13.99

Wine Spectator BEST BUY 90pts

Fresh and lively, with a definite spicy edge to the pear and pineapple flavors, lingering with a hint of apricot on the open finish. Drink now. 6,000 cases imported. - HS

 

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, Kentucky

4pk $11.99 NOW $9.99

KY bourbon barrel ale 4pk

Award winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale´┐Ż is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Kentucky Ale is aged for up to 6 weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentucky's finest distilleries.

 

Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels. Pleasantly smooth and robust, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after dinner drink.

 

George Dickel No. 12 Tennessee Whisky  george dickel bottle

45% ABV, Tennessee, 750ml $18.99 NOW $15.99

I know it's not a Kentucky whiskey, but it is pretty darn tasty! - Chris

With deeper, more assertive flavors and an incredibly smooth finish, No. 12, a classic 90-proof Dickel whisky, combines older whiskies selected by Master Distiller John Lunn to create a richness that maintains Dickel's signature smooth finish.

 

Concentrated flavors of rich oak and subtle vanilla lead to a long finish with hints of maple, butter and smoke. Quality like this doesn't go unnoticed: No. 12 has won high critical acclaim for years. Since 2005, No. 12 has been awarded two Silver Medals, two Gold Medals and one Double Gold Medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
