Matured at The Macallan distillery for a minimum of 12 years in Sherry oak casks from Spain, this is a classic, full-bodied Single Malt. Deliciously smooth palate of dried fruits, spice and wood smoke, leads to notes of flowers and sherry on the finish.

This 6yr 110* Rye has aromas of dusty cocoa notes with oaky smoke underneath lead to a dry and spicy mouth-feel witth honeyed rye and cloves on the palate with a long finish with hints of vanilla and baking spices.
Litchfield Batcher's Vodka
Silver Medal Winner at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition! Our Gluten-Free Batchers’ Vodka is distilled from luscious corn grown during the beautiful summer months in Sharon, CT. We distill 4 ¾ times and use a gravity-fed charcoal filter that takes 12 hours to filter 100 gallons. The longer the vodka sits on the charcoal, the more impurities are removed, which creates an incredibly smooth taste.
Greenhook Ginsmiths American Dry Gin
How to describe our American Dry Gin? called it “an aromatic powerhouse.” We can get behind that. The main punch comes from juniper (naturally) but with a creative twist. We add nine botanicals to a base spirit distilled from organic grown wheat. The uniqueness of our distillation process creates a bright, vibrant and nuanced gin that is a perfect balance between our herbal, floral and citrus components: elderflower, cinnamon and chamomile. It’s a mix unlike any other.
Azteca Azul Blanco
In keeping with a name as bold as its taste, Azteca Azul is produced by one of the finest tequila makers in the world, Tequila Supremo. This unaged expression of Azteca Azul has intense aromas of honey and sweet, roasted agave, with citrus notes of grapefruit and floral notes of anise and mint. It tastes of honey, coconut, banana, and peach. 
Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva

It is delicately distilled in ancient copper pot stills and aged in small oak casks for up to twelve years. Marrying a unique body with excellent balance has made it a reference for rum lovers and connoisseurs throughout the world.

Allagash White Ale
Though it’s brewed in Maine, the recipe sticks to its Belgian roots.Our interpretation of a Belgian-style wheat beer is brewed with oats, malted wheat, and unmalted raw wheat for a hazy, “white” appearance. Spiced with our own special blend of coriander and Curaçao orange peel, Allagash White upholds the Belgian tradition of beers that are both complex and refreshing.

Bell's Two Hearted Ale

Brewed with 100% Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this IPA is bursting with hop aromas ranging from pine to grapefruit from massive hop additions in both the kettle and the fermenter. Perfectly balanced with a malt backbone and combined with the signature fruity aromas of Bell's house yeast, this beer is remarkably drinkable and well suited for adventures everywhere.

Wolter's German Pilsner

On the pour, Wolters Pilsener presents a crystal clear, bright straw color with a fluffy bright white head. On the nose expect pale, crackery malt aromas, notes of hay, and a grassy and lightly floral noble hop character. In the mouth this brew is light bodied and crisp with a nice soft bite from the carbonation. The mildly floral and grassy hop aromas come through on the palate too, in perfect balance with the light pale malt sweetness hinting toward white bread dough. Great with grilled chicken sandwiches covered in pepper jack cheese, bacon, and tomato. Enjoy!

Two Roads Road to Ruin DIPA
A big, hoppy IPA with plenty of bite! Our assertive, hop-centric Double IPA has a lean malt backdrop and is brewed with four American hop varieties – Summit, Palisade, Cascade and Magnum. Piney, citrus, floral, not-for-the-timid!
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Pale Ale began as a home brewer’s dream, grew into an icon, and inspired countless brewers to follow a passion of their own. Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic, yet it remains new, complex and surprising to thousands of beer drinkers every day. It is—as it always has been—all natural, bottle conditioned and refreshingly bold.
