It is difficult to imagine a liqueur more elegant than Chambord. It became an instant success when it was introduced in the early 1980s and has been a top-shelf denizen since its arrival. Now, Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur is featured in such a large repertoire of classic and contemporary cocktails alike that the brand is permanently enrolled in the "must have" class. In the hands of the inspired, the super-premium brand has no creative limits. Chambord is made on the premises of a traditional Loire Valley Chateau south of Paris in Cour-Cheverny France. The liqueur is crafted using all-natural ingredients. An infusion of fresh raspberries and blackberries is married with a proprietary blend of natural black raspberry fruit extract, cognac, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and delicate herbs and spices. Everything about Chambord is sensational. The intrigue begins with its opaque appearance and extremely deep, ruby/purple hue. The liqueur has a luxuriously textured, medium-weight body and a wafting herbal and fruit bouquet. The semisweet palate is a lavish affair of raspberries, spice, herbs and a taste of honey. The flavors persist on the palate for a remarkably long finish. Chambord was inspired by a unique, black raspberry liqueur produced in the Loire Valley of France in the late 17th Century. While visiting the Chateau de Chambord, King Louis XIV sampled the liqueur and became immediately enamored with it. The rest is history.

Beckoning aromas of stewed black berry, black currant, and violets pave the way for a secondary rush of spice, licorice, vanilla, dark fruits and silky tannins. Open a bottle with barbacoa beef tacos or rosemary rubbed pork chops with roasted fingerling potatoes. The grapes from this tasty Bordeaux come from the oldest vines of Chateau Peybonhomme and can easily age for another 10 years.

Using the same recipes since 1821, Dolin Vermouth de Chambéry has long been the benchmark for fine French Vermouth. The exact recipes are a closely guarded secret, but there are up to 54 different plants used, most notably wormwood, but also hyssop, camomile, genepi, chincona bark and rose petals found in the Alpine meadows above Chambéry. Ugni Blanc grapes from the region combined with the Alpine botanicals impart a fresh and elegant nose, with a subtle and complex palate. Dolin Dry is classically herbal with hints of stone fruit, tarragon and lemon verbena. Ideal as an aperitif on ice with a twist of citrus or in a broad array of traditional cocktails. -Distiller's Notes

Dolin Rouge, red from the caramelization of its sugar, is less sweet than many of its counterparts with notes of dried fruit, clove, thyme and honey. Ideal as an aperitif on ice with a twist of citrus or in a broad array of traditional cocktails. -Distiller's Notes
Vajra's Langhe Nebbiolo is a pure expression of the grape variety. The grapes come from Barolo vineyards like Bricco delle Viole and Fossati but are under 20 years in age. It's not meant to be a 'little Barolo' but a picture of what the variety is without much winemaking in the way. Vinified in stainless steel and only a small percentage will be aged in wood in powerful vintages. This is a racy and delicious Nebbiolo that showcases the ethereal side of Nebbiolo, the floral and spicy cherry, but also the tannin and power that you love. -Winemaker's Notes
