It started with our brewmaster, Keith Villa, wanting to craft a beer inspired by the flavorful Belgian Wits he enjoyed while studying brewing in Belgium. He brewed his interpretation using Valencia orange peel versus the traditional tart Curaçao orange peel, for a subtle sweetness, and added a touch of coriander to provide balance. Then he added oats and wheat to create a smooth, creamy finish that’s inviting to the palate. As a final touch, he garnished the beer with an orange slice to heighten the citrus aroma and taste. Its natural unfiltered appearance adds to the depth of flavors in Belgian White.

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.

An excellent value, this Speyside spirit offers fresh apple and tropical fruit aromatics. It's relatively sweet up front, showing maple and vanilla, though a citrusy note unfolds midpalate and it finishes crisp and bracing, with a faint puff of smoke. Ideal for mixing whisky highballs.

You certainly canêt hide that this vodka was made from potatoes. The starchy white potato character starts out on the nose and follows through to the palate. A subtly oily mouthfeel is the clincher.

Columbia Winery Red Blend is primarily a blend of Merlot and Syrah. Sourced from Washington’s finest growing regions, the supple Red Blend wine has a solid, fruit-forward foundation of fresh blackberry, cassis and blueberry flavors, with hints of ripe raspberry and red cherry. Soft, approachable tannins are enhanced on the medium-bodied palate with Syrah’s notes of pepper and clove, with a mouth-filling texture. Notes of vanilla, toasted oak and brown spice linger on the Red Blend’s long finish.
