Jim Beam’s first single-barrel is an exceptional bourbon, crafted in hand-selected barrels. It has a great, full-bodied flavor, but is immensely drinkable – with just the right amount of sweetness and richness. Out March 2014.
Yo ho ho and a bottle of red! Designer Nick Lerwill’s amusing pirate-themed wine opener is ready to use its stumpy corkscrew leg to pop open your bottles with ease. Too bad rum bottles don’t have corks.
A wooden rack that makes it easier to carry and serve multiple bottles or glasses. A great gift for for pub owners and gracious hosts. There are variants that fit beer bottles, shot glasses and pint tumblers.
This limited-edition Johnnie Walker Gold comes in the bottle that it should have always had – enshrouded in a shiny gold finish that deserves top shelf placement. The smoothly honeyed, subtly smoky scotch inside ain’t bad either.
A single malt made near the sea on the Isle of Skye. Has a smooth, but complex aroma with just the right balance of sweet and smoky, made by blending casks from different ages. Warms the mouth with honey notes and a hint of peat.
The best Kentucky Bourbon from Jim Beam, Booker’s is prepared uncut in small batches and bottled straight from the barrel. Aged six to eight years, it’s a grand 120-130 proof oaky, vanilla experience for your nose and mouth.
