Tasting Line-Up

Aperitivo Cappelletti –  Sweet and herbal, with a round mouthfeel and subtly bitter finish. It’s like a mashup of Aperol and Campari: most of the sweetness of the former and half the bitterness of the latter. It blends beautifully into drinks

Rayu Espadín Mezcal – A clear crystalline Mezcal Espadín with a pleasing smell of cooked agave and notes of spices, fruits and light smokiness. Diverse flavors that invite you to have the next sip.

Wilderness Trail Bourbon – Bold, sweet, spicy, and welcoming to the palate. Aged in upscale barrels made from staves that have been air dried for 18 months and are toasted before being charred.

Barrel Seagrass Rye Whiskey – Seagrass highlights the grassy oceanside notes we love in rye and the opulence and spice of finishing barrels. It is a blend of American and Canadian rye whiskeys, with each ingredient meticulously sourced and finished separately in Martinique Rhum, Madeira & apricot brandy barrels.

Ardnamurchan Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky – A soft, pretty, honeyed profile, with notes of lemon, poached pears, sea salt, and light drifts of peat smoke. Vanilla cream, ripe peaches, and apricot jam at the finish, closing with a final note of peat. Artfully made, most notably with its subtle integration of smoke.

We will also have Cappelletti Spritzers for sale for $8.50
