Courage & Conviction Cuvee Cask American Single Malt Whiskey

Courage & Conviction

750 ml | 46% ABV
Whiskey | American

Maker Notes

With the courage to create our own traditions, and the conviction to remain true to ourselves and our home, Courage & Conviction sets the new standard for American Single Malt whisky, rivaling the finest in the world.

Using the highest quality malted barley and fresh spring water fed from the Blue Ridge Mountains, our spirit was developed to leverage Virginia’s climate, allowing the broad temperature shifts to add depth to our whisky. Hand-hammered copper pot stills crafted in Scotland are used to distill our spirit using time-honored techniques. What makes us a distinctly American whisky, and defines our signature taste, is our unique combination of casks aged in Virginia’s climate. Aging in exceptional casks adds intensity and complexity to the spirit.

Cuvée casks 

This innovative barrel is sourced from premium European red wine producers. After the wine is removed, the cask is broken down, the interior shaved, re-toasted and re-charred, and then put back together again. The re-toasting and re-charring of the cask energizes the wood sugars and brings forward barrel spice, bright red fruit and toasted pecan.

Aged a minimum of four years, this 100% malted barley whisky is matured in specialty Cuvée wine casks. The casks originate from premium red wine producers, and the interior is shaved, re-toasted and re-charred before putting spirit into the cask for maturation.

TASTING NOTES

NOSE: Raspberry and cherry

PALATE: Brown sugar, cocoa and baking spice

FINISH: Creamy and exceptionally smooth

About the Brand

CALIFORNIA CRAFT WHISKEY

Founded in 2010 by San Francisco native Adam Spiegel, Sonoma Distilling Company began as one of the first 200 distilleries in the country and the very first in Sonoma wine country. With a focus on handcrafted, grain-to-glass small batch-production using old-school methods, Sonoma Whiskey is authenticity bold and unpretentious, steeped in traditional values but fueled by the evolved needs of the modern palate. 

“While working with great Master Distillers and Blenders over the years, I’ve focused on continually raising the bar with each new product and batch. There are no ‘Masters’ here per se; we’re all just passionate, hard-working people striving every day to better ourselves and our craft. I like to say that we’re making whiskeys in a small way, for a big world.” Adam Spiegel, Founder & Whiskeymaker

Barrell Bourbon Cask Strength 10 Years Batch 023 Whiskey

Barrell Bourbon

750 ml | 53.89% ABV
Whiskey | Bourbon

Barrell Bourbon Batch 023 is a blend of 10, 12 and 15-year-old barrels. We focused on a balance of richness and depth from the older barrels. The blend mingled for a couple of months to heighten the lushness and complexity. Finally, we methodically layered in 15-year-old barrels to bring out notes of tropical fruit and angelica spice. The result is an evolving bourbon with layers of flavor.

 

FLAVOR NOTES

Cinnamon donuts lead into earthy notes of walnut, leather, and fallen leaves. Subtly fruity, with hints of white currant and honeydew melon peeking out over the classic rye spice of angelica, catnip and black licorice.

Appearance: 

A core of zincite ore fades to pale yellow. 

Nose: 

Opens sweetly, on buttered pancakes with maple syrup and cinnamon donuts. Gradually the aroma shifts to exotic, earthy notes of forest floor, cracked walnut, leather, red miso, and incense. Fruits feel ancillary, but kiwi, white currant, mulled cider and raspberry pastille all make an appearance. The rye spice is pronounced, lending bay leaf, angelica and chocolate mint.

Palate: 

Gently sweet with chewy tannin, the evolution on the palate mirrors the nose. Honey, coffee cake and a touch of brownie taking the lead. Dry rose follows, on walnut shell, fallen leaves and portobello mushroom; reminiscent of an old Oloroso sherry. There’s a juicy brightness that makes notes of honeydew melon, grenadine and orange zest come alive.

Finish: 

Cinnamon donut accompanied by nocino, black licorice and tar. As it fades, it softens to leather, orange peel and apple blossom.

Yellowstone Limited Edition 2020 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Yellowstone

750 ml | 50% ABV
Whiskey | Bourbon

Yellowstone National Park was established in 1876, and just a few short years later, the Yellowstone Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey brand would emerge with an equally-rich story. J.B. Dant, legendary distiller and son of J.W. Dant, first began distilling in the late 1800s, using a "log still" instead of the more popular yet more expensive copper pot stills (a log still is made by hollowing out a tree trunk and lining the interior with copper pipes, a cheaper yet still effective way of distilling). As Dant's Yellowstone brand gained popularity in Kentucky, he was able to purchase other nearby distilleries and formalize his process. In the early 1900s, it was through this expansion that Dant began working more closely with M.C. Beam of the illustrious Beam family. Together, Dant and Beam operated their network of facilities as the Yellowstone Distillery and continued to produce Yellowstone Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey for "medicinal purposes" throughout Prohibition. Although the Yellowstone brand changed hands several times throughout the 20th century (first to Diageo and recently to Luxco) and eventually fell out of favor, Luxco, along with the Beam family's new Limestone Branch Distillery, has recently revitalized the brand, unearthing an old Beam family recipe and partnering with Paul and Steve Beam to create a spectacular bourbon that pays homage to the original. The annual Limited Edition series of straight bourbons from Yellowstone has been around since 2015. The blended bourbons are on the experimental side, having been aged in (sometimes re-charred, even multiple times) wine casks, resulting in unique expressions. The 2020 edition is a 7-year-old small-batch affair that was finished in French armagnac casks, imparting the bold, oaky, and sweet bourbon with toffee, butterscotch, and chocolate notes.

The Whistler Beekeepers Select Irish Honey

The Whistler

750 ml | 33% ABV
Whiskey | Irish

Drogheda is one of the oldest Irish towns where the first written records of whiskey production date back to 1556. The town has a rich history of whiskey distilling and had 18 operating distilleries in 1774. As we know, Irish whiskey was in decline in the 20th century, due to the civil war, trade dispute with the UK, and Prohibition in the US with only a handful distilleries remaining operational, none of those in Drogheda. Boann Distillery joined the resurgence of Irish whiskey in 2019, producing the first spirit in the town in more than 160 years. The company was launched by Patrick "The Whistler" Cooney and his wife Marie with several other family members. Backed by 40 years of experience in the industry, the family has the know-how, skill, and passion to create premium Irish whiskey. On one hand, they honor the rich tradition of Irish whiskey, on the other they take innovative approaches using cutting-edge technology which includes their state-of-the-art brewhouse and unique 3 copper-pot stills that use nanotechnology all with the goal of creating some of the finest whiskey and craft gin. All the ingredients are 100% natural, including locally-grown barley from native farmers and water from the Boyne Valley well. The operation is overseen by Michael Walsh. Ireland's youngest head distiller has accumulated a vast amount of knowledge during his Chemical Engineering studies and when getting his Certificate in Distilling in 2012, quickly rising through the ranks. They recycle their water and harness the heat that is generated during distillation, which then helps run their packaging lines and heat their restaurant, visitor center, and offices. Distillation byproducts are used as animal feed. Walsh is more than just a head distiller, though. He is also the family beekeeper, which naturally led to The Whistler Beekeepers Select Irish Honey expression. Based on a blended Irish whiskey that is aged in ex-Bourbon barrels, the spirit gets infused with honey from their family orchards, resulting in a creamy, sweet, and decadent drink that has won several awards.

Ragtime Rye Single Barrel Will Guidara Signed Whisky

Ragtime Rye

750 ml | 56% ABV
Whiskey | Rye

This is a limited edition release of the popular Brooklyn-based distillery's signature rye whisky. This particular release was hand-selected by restaurateur and hospitality expert Will Guidara, who personally signed each bottle. It is a highly coveted whisky among collectors and enthusiasts alike, thanks to its unique flavor profile and exclusive nature.

Ragtime Rye Single Barrel is made using a mash bill of 75% rye, 13% corn, and 12% malted barley. The rye is sourced from a single farm in upstate New York, and the whisky is distilled and aged in charred oak barrels in the heart of Brooklyn. This gives it a distinctive flavor profile that is both bold and complex, with notes of spice, oak, and vanilla.

The single barrel release of Ragtime Rye takes this flavor profile to the next level, offering a more concentrated and nuanced expression of the whisky. Each barrel is aged for a minimum of two years, allowing the flavors to develop and mature over time. The result is a whisky that is rich and complex, with a deep amber color and a smooth, velvety texture.

Will Guidara's hand-selection of this particular barrel adds an extra layer of exclusivity to this already sought-after whisky. Guidara is a renowned restaurateur and hospitality expert, having founded the acclaimed Eleven Madison Park restaurant in New York City, which has won numerous awards and accolades. His signature on each bottle adds a personal touch and a sense of prestige to the whisky.
