  2. Beluga Allure Vodka

    Proof80 (40% ABV)
    Size750mL
    Distilled in the heart of Siberia, and crafted from the purest artesian waters from 300-meter-deep Siberian wells, the Mariinsk Distillery in Siberia is where the diverse range of Beluga Vodka is produced. This distillery sits in one of the most serene areas of Russia and relies on innovative equipment. The first batch of Beluga Russian Vodka was produced in 2002, a meticulous batch produced by the Mariinsk Distillery Masters.

    The standard Beluga vodka is crafted using traditional Russian methods, the primary distillate of Beluga is washed thoroughly through quartz sand, triple-filtered through graphite columns and then percolated slowly through quartz sand once more. These methods used help neutralize the harsh smell of the spirit, enhance the richness in taste and softness of flavor of the end product. Water accounts for 60% of the unique formula for Beluga, making it a key component in production. Drawn from a 300 meter deep artesian well in the bedrock of Siberia.

    The brand's seasoned Russian Beluga Polo Team has plenty of international victories behind them and Beluga Allure celebrates their sporting achievements. The 80-proof wheat vodka rests for 2 months and has subtle maple syrup and fig extract additions, still retaining its beautifully neutral profile with hints of pepper, nuts, and vanilla.

  3. Pernod Absinthe

    Proof136 (68% ABV)
    Size750mL
    Absinthe, which is a spirit traditionally derived from wormwood, star anise and fennel, has a long and colorful history. While its origins remain unclear, the use of medicinal wormwood dates back to ancient Egypt. In the 18th and 19th centuries, absinthe was distributed by the French Army to its troops as a cure for several digestive diseases, including dysentery and tropical fever. When the troops returned home, they brought their taste for absinthe with them.

    A French doctor, Pierre Ordinaire, knew of absinthe’s medical benefits, and believed there could be a business in distilling the spirit commercially for non-medical purposes. Ordinaire did not know how to distill spirits, however, and looked to 21-year-old Swiss distiller Henri Louis-Pernod for help. They set up a distillery together in 1798, and by 1805 Pernod had opened his own distillery in Pontarlier, France, exporting absinthe to the U.S. as early as 1827.

    The popularity of absinthe grew, particularly among bohemian artists and writers such as Ernest Hemingway, Vincent van Gogh and Oscar Wilde, all known to be absinthe drinkers. By the mid-1800’s absinthe had established itself as a pre-dinner drink throughout parts of Europe to be enjoyed during “The Green Hour”, which referred to the spirit’s vivid hue.

    Spurred by the temperance movement and winemakers, absinthe became associated with hallucinogenic effects. One critic claimed that absinthe would "make you crazy and criminal," and that it would "provoke epilepsy and tuberculosis." In 1905, Swiss farmer Jean Lanfray murdered his family after consuming considerable quantities of wine, brandy and two glasses of absinthe. While Lanfray had a history of alcoholism, teetotalers seized the moment and passed a referendum making absinthe illegal; it was not until 2007 that absinthe was allowed to be legally sold again.

    Pernod Absinthe is still produced following the traditional processes that were used in the original distillery of Henri-Louis Pernod. Local wormwood and the green anise are distilled after maceration in a neutral wine spirit base. Following distillation, the “heart cut” is macerated again in star anise, Melissa, petite wormwood, hyssop and a mixture of herbs kept secret by the distillery in Thuir, France that give the spirit its beautiful green color.

    Long floral notes linger on the nose followed by a palate of star anise, vanilla and hyssop. The finish is slightly spicy with a hint of wormwood.

    Inspired by a historical figure of the American revolution, Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye showcases the same clandestine and complex character that was exhibited by the Irish-born tailor-spy that saved George Washington’s life on more than one occasion.

    Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye is crafted with carefully selected ingredients: American Rye whiskeys were blended with aged Caribbean Rum before a macerated fresh organic ginger from Brooklyn was added to the mix. Finally, a dash of bitters found its way in to make the concoction richer and reminiscent of the idea of a bittersweet life. Bottled at 43% ABV, this is a powerful, flavorful, and rare spirit. Only 2,000 bottles were produced in the first batch and they immediately sold out. You can savor Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye any way you like, but we recommend enjoying it over rocks or in a delicious cocktail paired with ginger beer.

    Hercules Mulligan was created with sophisticated free thinkers in mind and inspired by Hercules Mulligan, a tailor-spy of the American Revolution who managed to get sensitive information out of British officers with his gift of gab and fine Spirits. Mulligan was also an influential figure in the life of Alexander Hamilton as he helped him enroll in college and impacted his desire for the revolution. Mulligan knew how to stand for something and he was brave enough to execute it. In honor of Mulligan’s legacy, a complex spirit was created for inquisitive palates.

    Barr Hill Vodka is crafted from raw, organic Vermont honey sourced from one of Hardie's now 1,900 colonies. "Honey is incredibly expensive to harvest," Hardie notes, and harder still to ferment. "Even with a Bachelor's of Science in agriculture, I didn't know that the way you're taking care of your bees and your people goes into every product — every bottle,"he says. "With a strict science background, they don't teach you that, but it's true. The consumer will know the difference between a good and a mediocre product."

    After cold fermenting the honey for approximately three weeks, Hardie, together with Ryan Christiansen, Caledonia Spirits' master distiller, distills the wash through a 25-gallon custom-designed fractionating column still. After distillation, each bottle of Barr Hill Vodka is brought to proof and sealed with beeswax (what else did you expect?) cut from a huge hunk of luminous lemon-yellow wax from Singing Cedar Apiaries.

    Barr Hill Vodka has soft notes of honey and vanilla, with a smooth, clean finish and a unique, crisp texture. "The best fertilizer is always the footprint of a farmer," says Hardie. This vodka has his footprint all over it.

    DeKuyper Royal Distillers was founded in 1695 by Petrus De Kuyper in the Netherlands. While the company was manufacturing barrels at first, they eventually expanded into distilling, their distillery becoming the no. 1 Dutch gin (also known as jenever) producer. It wasn't until 1911 that they built a new distillery to produce cordials or liqueurs. By the 60s cordials had become their main focus, following the cocktail boom.

    They have a wide range of liqueurs on offer today, including Triple Sec, Peachtree Schnapps Liqueur, Blue Curacao, Peppermint Schnapps Liqueur, Buttershots Schnapps butterscotch liqueur, Pucker Watermelon Schnapps, Ol' Fashion, and several others. They offer various different chocolate liqueurs, as well as a range of mixers.

    DeKuyper Triple Sec orange liqueur is crafted with a blend of different sweet and bitter orange peels, which get distilled meticulously before being bottled at 48 proof. A cocktail staple, its sweet, zesty, and fruity orange-forward flavor profile make it a perfect digestif. It was crafted with mixology in mind, making a delicious margarita, cosmopolitan, Long Island iced tea, or a number of other cocktails.
