Alsace Gentil Hugel white wine

Alsace Gentil Hugel

This multifaceted white wine blend strikes a perfect balance of everything you’re looking for in a white. True to the tradition of the Alsace region, it embodies the bold body of a pinot gris, the finesse of a riesling, the grape-forward flavors of a muscat, and the spice and smoothness of gewürztraminer.



Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif red wine

Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif

This silky durif, also known as a petite sirah, boasts a bold style. The winemaker acknowledges the robust nature of this vintage with “grand” in the name. These petite sirah grapes are grown in California’s Suisun Valley, which is evolving into a destination wine region similar to neighboring Napa Valley. This red displays a rich, supple mouthfeel complemented nicely by luscious textural tannins, making it a quality companion for cool nights outside.

Tito’s Handmade Vodka

Authentic and simple, this craft vodka has become a go-to for bartenders everywhere in the past several years. Its old-fashioned distillation process creates a clean flavor profile and smooth finish. Its clear color and simplistic style make it one of the more versatile vodkas for mixing cocktails, while still retaining enough body and flavor to sip on its own.



Chattanooga Whiskey 91

Chattanooga Whiskey 91

Barrel 91 was selected from over 100 experimental batches as the choice of Chattanooga Whiskey’s distillers. In fact, the four grain, three malt recipe was overwhelming voted as the favorite to continue creating. Notes of caramel, honey, and a toasty-malty finish do a remarkable job of marrying characteristics of a classic bourbon and a traditional Tennessee high malt. CS
