Aperol originated in 1919 in Padova, Ital. It was a product of the Barbieri Brothers who launched the revolutionary idea of an aperitif with an alcohol content of only 11% alcohol. Today Aperol has become a classic apéritif and increasingly popular in cocktail recipes around the world. Bright orange in color it has a unique bitter-sweet taste deriving from a secret recipe that has remained unchanged since its creation. An infusion of bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb and cinchona combined with herbs and roots create a perfectly balanced elixir. Aperol is milder in flavor and half the alcohol content of its Campari cousin.
Together with 3 parts of Prosecco, 2 parts of Aperol and a dash of seltz, Aperol makes the perfect Spritz -the irresistible Italian Aperol Spritz.
Created by R. & A. Bailey Company of Dublin, Ireland, the liqueur is made from a base of dairy cream not more than 2 hours old. The quality and fresh flavor of the cream is the most important ingredient in a liqueur of its type. Baileys is made with the highest grade of dairy fresh cream possible. The cream is infused with aged, triple-distilled Irish whiskey and natural vanilla and chocolate flavorings. The liqueur is homogenized to ensure that the flavors become fully integrated and the ingredients don’t separate. It’s pasteurized and bottled at 34-proof.
Baileys Irish Cream is an elegant taste sensation that deserves its international preeminence. The liqueur has a beige hue and a luscious, medium-weight body. The bouquet is decidedly creamy with engaging aromas of whiskey and chocolate. It spreads a wealth of flavors over the palate; alternating notes of vanilla, chocolate and whiskey. The dairy-wrapped flavors persist long into the luxurious finish. Enjoy this creamy treat by itself, over ice, or as part of a cocktail. It is also commonly used as an addition to coffee in lieu of sugar and cream.

Basil Hayden's Bourbon dates back to 1796, when Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. created a recipe unlike any other. He used a traditional corn base, but mixed in small grains in his mash to capture the spicy flavor of rye and complement the sweet smoothness of corn. More than 200 years later, Basil Hayden's is a singular bourbon that bridges the flavor of rye whiskies and small batch bourbons together. Enriched by a hint of peppermint, it impresses with notes of pepper balanced by slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish. Aged eight years at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's has a broad appeal and is equally enjoyable alone or in cocktails.

Such an elegant, ethereal wine, this orange-pink wine is dry and crisp with fruity raspberry flavor at the fore. This particular bottling could improve for a year, but makes a great food Champagne now.

Light orange. Tangerine, pear and flowers on the nose, which is complicated by a note of fennel. Broad and sappy but dry, with lively orange and strawberry flavors and a subtle note of spice cake. Weightier on the finish, which features an exotic note of spicy herbs. This Champagne's delicate touch will make it work well with simple seafood dishes or even sashimi.
92pts -Wine Spectator

Our Vodka is not your ordinary Vodka. We created Bootlegger 21 New York Vodka to be soft on your pallet yet with character not seen in the vodka category. When you bring Bootlegger Vodka to your nose, you’ll sense no smell, and when you take a sip it has flavor yet lacks the usual burn. Bootlegger 21 New York Vodka is made from 100% Corn, which is slowly filtered through a proprietary filtration process using charcoal for over 24 hours to give our silky smooth mouth feel. What most people don’t know is the best way to “taste” a vodka is by touching it. Most vodkas feel oily, but as they dry become sticky due to additives like glycerol and sugar. We’ve taken a higher road with Bootlegger 21 New York Vodka where strict adherance to a proprietary filtration process delivers unparalleled smoothness. It’s not what we do that’s different, but what others don’t do that sets us apart. We’ve taken the time to do it right, and now vodka aficionados are taking notice. -Distiller's Notes
The owners of Boyd & Blair, Barry Young and C. Prentiss Orr, give new meaning to the phrase “handmade by locals.” Produced from an original mash using locally-grown potatoes, this batch-distilled vodka is produced by hand; in other words, without the use of automated controls. As Still Master, Barry chooses the more expensive and labor-intensive route and only uses the “heart of the run”, which he cuts based on taste and experience. Named after the owners' fathers, each bottle of Boyd & Blair is signed by Barry and then filled, corked, and dipped in wax by hand. Slightly sweet aromas of white potato intermingle with notes of starch and parchment. The slight natural sweetness and creamy viscosity inherent to the potato meets mid-palate flavors of cocoa bean, maple and honey. The aftertaste is graceful, solid and simply delicious. -Distiller's Notes
Distilled from a mash of 90% rye and 10% corn harvested from New York State farms, Breuckelen "77" Local Rye & Corn Whiskey has been matured for seven months in new American oak barrels from Kentucky. The smooth, clean base spirit has a subtle sweetness which shines through in the mature product, and is balanced by notes of vanilla and spicy oak.
Created in Brooklyn, New York, Breukelen Gin is meticulously handcrafted from locally sourced wheat and a unique blend of botanicals. This balanced, full flavored gin is crisp and clean with hints of fresh rosemary, lemon peel, grapefruit peel and ginger enhancing fresh juniper notes. Although it is ideal for sipping, it also makes an excellent cocktail.
Broker’s Gin is made in a 200-year-old distillery in the heart of England using a traditional copper pot-still. The recipe is as old as the distillery. A quadruple-distilled pure grain spirit made from English wheat is redistilled with ten traditional botanicals, creating a gin of outstanding flavour and smoothness. This extremely dry and serious juniper heavy Gin calls for martini's and a kaftan.
This single malt Scotch whiskey was originally crafted by distilling legend Jim McEwan to showcase our floral and elegant house style unpeated, it has become our signature bottling.Jim has now retired but the spirit for this definitive Bruichladdich is still made from 100% Scottish barley, trickle distilled, and then matured for its entire life, on Islay, by the shores of Loch Indaal.

Color: Golden Honey

Palate: The palate remains true to the aroma. Pairing honey with fruit garnished with baking spices.
Finish: The warm taste of barley and sea salt will leave your mouth watering for more.
