Recommended by Matt, Wine Lead @Habersham St.; 90 Points, Habersham Tasting Panel | Winemaker's Notes: This Estate Bottled Chardonnay is a showcase for the Dunnigan Hills terroir, with lush, full, rich tropical characters. This golden straw-colored Chardonnay has aromas of Crème Brulee, pineapple and macaroons. Flavors of creamy butter are mellowed by tropical mango and ripe melon. While it’s rich in the palate, this Dunnigan Hills Chardonnay displays beautiful structure with a lively, lingering finish.
Recommended by Matt, Wine Lead @Habersham St.; 91 Points, Habersham Tasting Panel | Winemaker's Notes: A brilliant and vibrant wine, pale straw in colour with slight green hues at its edge. This is so succulent and tasty with lime, stonefruit and herbaceous flavours. The palate is powerfully flavoured and fruity showing refreshing acidity and excellent mid palate weight. The flavours flow to a dry finish with great length.
Recommended by Matt, Wine Lead @Habersham St.; 91 Points, Habersham Tasting Panel | Winemaker's Notes: With excellent weight and texture on the palate, and intriguing minerality in its long, elegant finish, our Pinot Gris is textbook Willamette Valley. We ensure this distinctive style by keeping residual sugar levels well below one-tenth of 1%, a major quality factor in classic Pinot Gris food pairings like fresh local salmon or shellfish.
Recommended by Matt, Wine Lead @Habersham St.; 90 Points, Habersham Tasting Panel | Winemaker's Notes: The bold, juicy red that plays extremely well with others. Our fearless winemaker, Beth Liston, set off around the globe with a plan: to source the most popular grapes from the regions that made them famous. She brought these super-fruits together to create a full-bodied red that’s clearly enjoyed some special attention. Always a shameless people-pleaser, the Big Red Blend is what happens when best-in-class flavors unite for good.
Recommended by Matt, Wine Lead @Abercorn St.; 91 Points, Habersham Tasting Panel | Winemaker's Notes: is wine is a true Vin Gris, which is to say, made from bespoke grapes (not a by-product of red wine production), harvested at the appropriate ripeness level for its style, and receiving but minimal skin contact. e essential principle here is that less is truly more. e wine does not overwhelm one with fruity- bombasticity; it’s charms are seductively subtle. Discreet nose of alpine strawberry, evolving into a refreshing mintiness with additional air and warming. On the palate, a beautiful natural crispness and a great sleek and savory texture, in virtue of the extended lees contact/bâtonnage the wine received post-fermentation. Possibly the most elegant and complex Vin Gris de Cigare to date.
Recommended by Jake, Certified Specialist of Spirits @Abercorn St. | Distiller's Notes: Tradicional® Silver is 100% blue agave silver tequila. It is irresistibly refined. When bottled, a special process is used to conserve its flavor and finish at freezing temperatures. This means that it can, and should, be kept chilled in the freezer and served as a crisp, smooth, frozen shot.
Recommended by Jake, Certified Specialist of Spirits @Abercorn St. | Distiller's Notes: Tradicional® Reposado is 100% blue agave rested tequila. It has been aged in oak barrels for a minimum of two months, giving it the smooth and subtle complexity that aficionados seek. Tradicional is the original Cuervo® tequila, and it is still the number one premium tequila in Mexico.

Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 94 Points, Wine Enthusiast: ....it's really all about the influence of the ex-Sherry cask. Aromas suggest golden raisins and dried apricots. The silky palate starts out moderately smoky, but glides into a richer, honeyed, nutty profile that finishes with cocoa and clove accents.
Recommended by Jim, Wine Lead @Abercorn St.; 90 Points, Habersham Tasting Panel | Winemaker's Notes: Inspired by the idea that less is more, this wine is more minerality-driven than fruit-driven. Not grassy or overly ripe, it offers up delicate fruit flavors with a crisp, bright minerality that calls to mind a first summer rain. Our grapes come from two family vineyards, and we harvest the fruit at just the right moment to achieve a balance of firm acidity and low alcohol.
Recommended by Matt, Wine Lead @Habesham St.; 91 Points, Habersham Tasting Panel | Winemaker's Notes: Ventana's 2013 Pinot Noir has an explosion of vibrant cherry, rasberry and cranberry flavors with a delicous hint of chocolate. Ten months of barrel aging rounds out the flavor complexities with a touch of smokiness and vanilla. The wine is medium bodies with a bright berry red color. This food friendly Pinot Noir is a pleasing accompaniment to almost any entre from almond encrusted salmon to duck in cherry reduction sauce. It is fabulous now or cellar up to eight years.
Recommended by James, Product Research; 92 Points, Robert Parker: Bouquet dominated by plum and cherry aromas that are accented by floral and smoky notes. The palate is round and well-balanced with dark fruit flavors. The finish is long and very lean, with dark fruit and hints of tapenade.
Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St. | Distiller's Notes: At 17 years-old and hand-selected by Master Distiller Eddie Russell for its perfectly balanced flavor, Master's Keep is the longest-aged whiskey released by Wild Turkey in the United States. Aged in both brick and wood rickhouses and at 86.8 proof, it starts out smooth and silky, transforms into a caramel, vanilla sweetness, and finishes with savory spiciness and oak.
Recommended by James, Product Research; 93 Points, Robert Parker:The non-vintage Otima 10-Year Old Tawny Port reveals a medium ruby/amber/garnet color, loads of kirsch and cedar intermixed with a touch of brown sugar in the nose, rich, full-bodied flavors, a burgeoning complexity and big aromatics. This is a full-bodied, silky smooth Tawny Port.
Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast: Bridging sweet and savory, this gin has a citrusy fragrance, which also shows up on the palate. Starting out with mild pineapple-like sweetness and traditional juniper, this gin segues into a spicy, mouthwatering finish with white and black pepper, coriander and ginger spice.
Recommended by Jay, Spirits Lead @Abercorn St.; 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast:The initial aroma is sweetish, winey and oaky; aeration allows the aroma to expand to include marzipan, treacle, molasses, honey, vanilla bean, cinnamon and cocoa butter. The palate entry is sweet, creamy and assertive; at midpalate the flavor becomes intensely nutty, buttery and bacon fat-like, with the beginnings of rancio. Remains one of Speyside's standard-bearer 12 year olds.
Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 91 Points, Beverage Testing Institute: Pale amber color. Attractive aromas and flavors of coconut creme brulee, mocha, polished wood, and toffee with a supple, dryish medium-to-full body and a nutty, spicy, coppery mineral tang on the finish. A dry, serious oak aged pot still rum for sipping or bold cocktails.
Recommended by Chad, Wine Consultant @Abercorn St.; 92 Points, Robert Parker:A winner, slightly more open and precocious, but with plenty of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, striking minerality (no doubt from the Obsidian rocks) and a full-bodied, luscious, juicy style with a voluptuous texture. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
Recommended by James, Product Research; 97 Points, Ultimate Spirits Challenge:A delightfully lifted nose of sea iodine and earthy peat introduce a quite complex dram. The palate opens into orange flower and sweet cake notes before the wave of intense Islay flavors returns on the long, smoky finish.
Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 95 Points, Ultimate Spirits Challenge:Incredibly enticing on the nose with notes of almond cookie, vanilla, almond milk, butterscotch, and baked apples with cinnamon. On the palate almond comes forward with a luxurious sweetness that lingers on the tongue.
Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 92 Points/Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast:The aroma displays a spicy, rind-like bearing with hints of orange candy, fresh herbs, and the oily presence of grain whisky. The palate entry is nicely acidic and bone dry; at midpalate the taste profile turns mildly sweeter, sap-like, and more whisky-like. The finish is off-dry, citrusy, sappy, yet creamy.
Recommended by James, Product Research; VIP Feature, Savannah Craft Brew Fest 2016 | Brewer's Notes: Our Imperial Breakfast Stout is aged for four weeks on coffee, raisins, Serrano peppers, Ancho peppers, cumin, allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. This aging produces a complex aroma and flavor profile.
Recommended by Jay, Spirits Lead @Abercorn St.; 90-95 Points, Wine Enthusiast:Initial nose finds traces of charcoal and roasted grain which are followed by sweeter aromas of grain mash and pipe tobacco. Entry is smoky and charred; the midpalate is oily, moderately viscous, semisweet and robust. Ends on a bacon-like note. A very well-made American pot still vodka.

The resulting 40% abv rum is described as having notes of tropical fruit, smoke, citrus peel and clove.

Spain | 90% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha and 5% Graciano
Recommended by Chad, Wine Consultant @Abercorn St.; 93 Points, Robert Parker:A classic, traditional Rioja, it exhibits notes of lead pencil shavings, unsmoked cigar tobacco, black cherries, blackcurrants and subtle oak in the background. This dense ruby/plum/purple-colored 2010 is medium-bodied, elegant and pure with a lovely texture and lushness.
Recommended by James, Product Research; 94 Points, Beverage Testing Institute: Clear. Delicate aromas of cucumber, rose, honeyed citrus and floral juniper with a satiny dry-yet-fruity medium-full body with a long, elegant and smooth finish. A sensationally flavorful and seamless gin.
Recommended by Matt, Wine Lead @Habersham St.; 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast:This limited production blend from selected vineyard partners represents our terroir-focused style while showcasing the given vintage.

Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 96-100 Points, Wine Enthusiast:The nosing passes find layers of aromas of honey, heather, pine needle, thyme and salty single malt Scotch whisky. Entry is thick, gently sweet but balanced by a fierce herbal quality; midpalate focuses on the whisky while the various herbs, spices and honey make merry around their whisky core. One of the best liqueurs available.
Italy | Varietal Composition: Montepulciano and Aglianico
Recommended by Jim, Wine Lead @Abercorn St.; 90 Points, Wine Spectator:Up-front mulberry and plum fruit is ripe and fleshy in this balanced red, with polished tannins. Notes of licorice string, graphite, tarry smoke and grilled mushroom push through midpalate and on the finish. Drink now through 2021.
Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 95 Points, Whisky Advocate:Creamy, silky texture on the palate. Richer than the flagship Crown Royal, but still quite clean on the palate.

Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 92 Points, Wine Enthusiast: Orange-amber color and deep aromas of honey and Sherry, with undertones of toffee and chocolate, and a fleeting floral note. The flavors start with a touch of sweet caramel and finishes with big, complex, deep burnt-orange and toffee notes, with surprising delicacy and richness on the tongue.

Recommended by James, Product Research; 98 Points, Ultimate Spirits Challenge: Almond shell, Band-Aid, and wood varnish counteract the more honeyed aspects of this heavily-peated malt. The palate displays an interesting apricot-candy note alongside more conventional toffee and spice, with mellow wood tannins building to the finish.
Recommended by James, Product Research; 95 Points, Wine Enthusiast: Bold and flavorful. The caramel aroma is rich and luxe. On the palate, it's quite tannic and drying, but the flavor shines through, showing toffee, caramel and dried cherry, with a spicy finish of clove, dried fig and date. The alcohol feels remarkably balanced despite the high proof.
Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 94 Points, Wine Enthusiast:Add a bit of water and this light, silky sipper unfolds layers of vanilla, almond and oak. It finishes light with a hint of dried apricot and a flourish of baking spice.
