Pinhook Bourbon

This first Cask Strength Pinhook release was bottle at 115.3 proof and has a deep and bright nose of Creme Brûlée, orange zest, and toasted coconut, which sets the stage for a rich and harmonious palate of pralines, brioche, cocoa, and candied cinnamon. This release recently won Gold at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition

Pinhook Rye, “Humor”

This straight rye whiskey is bottled at 97 proof and has a perfumed nose of elderflower, aromatic wood, and preserved lemon which leads to a palate of dried papaya and caramel. Toasted vanilla, candied black licorice and honey linger, balancing an elegant yet powerful rye.

GrandTen Distilling, “Fire Puncher” Vodka

Fire Puncher Vodka hits first with a crisp, bell pepper sweetness and follows up with a smooth, smoky heat. Heaps of locally grown chipotle peppers are added to the final distillation, which allows us to extract the whole range of chile flavors along with the spice. Hickory smoke is bubbled through the spirit just before bottling, making each sip rich with hardwood smokiness. Whether blended with citrus or used to create stellar savory drinks, this punchy spirit adds depth and heat to any drink from brunch to dessert. Made in South Boston and handcrafted in copper, Fire Puncher Vodka is anything but ordinary.

Plus...special cordials too!

Kate will have some cordial surprises to share as well, perfect for Holiday toasts and cocktails!
