Ilegal Mezcal Joven

Known for its beautifully balanced profile, Ilegal Mezcal promises a mouthful of agave and a hint of smoke. The Joven variety leaves a lingering heat on the palate. The eucalyptus and mineral aromas complement hints of green apple, fresh citrus, and chili pepper. This varietal is ideal for cocktails or can be enjoyed on its own.


Fleurs de Prairie Côtes de Provence Rosé 

Fleurs de Prairie translates as “wildflowers” – an homage to the beautiful fields of blooms carpeting the South of France. Crafted in the traditional Provençal style, this rosé has a pale salmon color with delicate flavors of strawberry, rose petals, and herbs. It has a bright, refreshing acidity. This crisp, pleasant sip is best enjoyed cold. Serve alongside savory pork, shellfish, poultry, or any variety of vegetarian dishes. 


Sea Sun Pinot Noir California

This smooth pinot noir is sourced from coastal California. The cool ocean breeze and extended growing season lends itself to more complex wine varietals, just like this bottle from Caymus Vineyards. It’s creamy on the palate and greets the taste buds with fruity flavors and grippy tannins. Expect notes of vanilla, cherry, and plum. This wine pairs well with hearty beef, veal, and poultry dishes.


Elijah Craig Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey  

This small batch bourbon whiskey is made from locally sourced corn and grains that are milled and mixed with limestone-rich Kentucky spring water. Known for its balance and smoothness, this whiskey presents a delightful aroma of vanilla bean, sweet fruit, and fresh mint. Warm accents of spice, smoke, and nutmeg wash over the palate with each sip.
