Share Some Christmas Spirits That Are Guaranteed To Impress

Remy Louis XIII Grande
If it’s good enough for Queen Elizabeth and
Winston Churchill, it should be good
enough for just about anyone on your list.

There’s a good chance there’s someone on your Christmas list that you know would enjoy wine as a gift. There’s an equally good chance that if they’re a genuine enthusiast, they spend fifty to a hundred dollars on a bottle of wine with some regularity. So you may think that’s one quick gift out of the way, but then realize – once confronted with hundreds of wines to choose from – that you’re not really all THAT sure what they have in their cellar, or what EXACTLY would bring a smile to their face when they’re unwrapping it. So here’s a strategy: why not buy them something interesting to drink that *isn’t wine. Like a nice whiskey, brandy, port, or even a mescal or tequila? Fine spirits have another little side benefit: you’re almost certainly not going to a come across a “bad” bottle. We’ve rounded up just a few of the more interesting (and pricey) gift packages we have in stock below. We’re being a little whimsical to make a point; we don’t expect you to rush in by Christmas and drop a couple thousand dollars on a Remy Martin Louis XIII Cognac, or a Highland Park 40 Year Old scotch, but you might very well find that something like the Dewar’s Signature in a wooden gift box to be just the thing for about a tenth that price. And that’s what we’d *really like to bring to your attention. Our store is unfortunately a bit cramped at about 2500 sq ft, so many of our nearly 3,000 wines and several hundred fine whiskeys and brandies are at your feet, high above your head, or in our “secret cellar” in the rear of the store. Like our selection of vintage ports, which cover most years through the 80′s and 90′s through the present. Or our selection of magnums and jeroboams. So next time you’re in the store, remember things are looking up. Or at least you are, if you’re perusing our selection of hundreds of fine spirits.

Remy Martin Louis XIII

Remy Martin
Louis XIII Cognac

$1995.11

The highest quality Cognac on the market today, Louis XIII de Rémy Martin has been carefully tended by three generations of Rémy Martin cellar masters. Louis XIII de Rémy Martin uses only grapes from the Grande Champagne region which guarantees its unique, exclusive quality. It is blended from eaux de vie, some more than a century in age, then it is aged in ‘tiercons’ – barrels that are several hundred years old – in a cellar set apart for it alone. Undoubtedly the world’s finest, this exceptional Cognac has always been a favorite in the world of politics, fashion, and art. Its connoisseurs include the likes of Christian Dior, Queen Elizabeth II, and Winston Churchill.
Highland Park 40

Highland Park 40
$2495.29

Released in 2008, Highland Park 40 was named Best New Release of the Year at the World Whisky Awards 2009. It has been largely matured in refill casks, that is to say casks that have previously been used to mature whisky. Every time a cask is used, its ability to impart an influence on the spirit is diminished. When laying down a whisky for extended maturation, such as this, it is important that the cask doesn’t dominate the spirit. If first fill casks had been used, the sweetness (an oak-derived additive quality from the cask) would have been too strident. The long-term nature of the maturation of Highland Park 40 year old allows time for the perfect balance to be achieved. The colour, as with all bottlings of Highland Park, is entirely natural; the delicate coppery paleness of the whisky is down to the judicious use of refill casks.
