Tasting Spirits

Check out the spirits we will be tasting “Behind The Bar” at this Saturday’s tasting.

Papas Pilar 24 Year Dark Rum


Papa’s Pilar Dark Rum has a strong aroma of brown sugar and cinnamon: sweet, dark, and rich. The flavor is sweet initially, with lots of vanilla, caramel, and citrus. Then the spice starts to come on, cinnamon and anise, balancing it out. It finishes on the dry side, medium-long, with the influence of the sherry aging making itself known.

Ryan & Wood Knockabout Gin


Combining Juniper berries, coriander seed, angelica root, orange peel, and licorice root, classics of many gin recipes. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cassia and lemon peel are added. The gin is distilled in small batches using the custom built copper pot still. The gin is named after the fishing schooners built at the turn of the last century. Their design eliminated the bowsprit to allow for easier handling at the crowded wharves. It also helped prevent loss of life at sea due to fishermen being washed off the bowsprit while working the heavy sails in the north Atlantic.
