Absolut Elyx

With a shelf price of around $50 per liter, Absolut has re-entered the ultra-premium vodka game with Elyx while emulating a small-batch spirit.

Fords Gin

This new gin comes from The 86 Co., a spirits group founded by former bartenders with products sold in bar-friendly, ergonomic 1-liter bottles.

Noilly Prat Extra Dry Vermouth

This vermouth, actually a reintroduction to the U.S., was the Noilly Prat we knew as “French Dry” until 2007, when it was replaced with the “Original Dry.” The Extra Dry is less sweet and less wood

Non-vintage Sokol Blosser Evolution

Very food-friendly, this unique blend of nine white wine-grape varietals is poised to pair with just about anything (from jambalaya to sushi) or even sip solo.

2012 Nobilo Wines Icon Pinot Noir

Perfectly suited for autumn drinking, this Pinot Noir’s notes of cherries, plums, and chocolate—plus traces of cola—can ward off a chilly night.

2011 Mollydooker Wines The Boxer Shiraz

For jammy, true Aussie-style Shiraz it doesn’t get any better than this Shiraz, which packs a lot of punch into one bottle. Layers of intense, sweet red fruit mingle with chocolate and plum notes.

2010 Sea Smoke Chardonnay

Featuring peach and honeysuckle notes, this Chardonnay is delicate and elegant, with a finish that lingers on the palate as well as lots of minerals.

2012 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc

Consistently solid from vintage to vintage, this is the essence of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with crisp gooseberry notes and a grassy profile.

2011 Gary Farrell Chardonnay

Buttery and light-bodied, but without going over the top, this Chardonnay features ripe nectarine notes and a clean finish.

2010 Cloudy Bay Te Wahi Pinot Noir

Refined and elegant, this brand-new release represents Cloudy Bay Vineyards’ entry into Central Otago: expect dark-red fruit notes (currants and black cherries) and some pomegranate too.

Victory Lager

“Helles” is German for “bright,” and this clean and refreshing helles-style lager certainly fits the bill.

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA

This world-class India Pale Ale has a light body and lush tropical hop note, making it the perfect playmate for fiery foods.
