Give the Gift of Whiskey

whiskey-wall

We have a wall full of whiskey gifts, including some unique, rare and hard-to-find whiskeys. Look to the West wall, just through the Hobbit hole, for some tremendous whiskeys.

Booker’s Rye is really the crown jewel, recently named “World Whisky of the Year” for 2017 by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. It’s aged 13 years, and beat out 1,240 new whiskies for the honor, by being “simply a staggering example of magnificent rye showing exactly what genius in terms of whiskey actually means.”

Whistle Pig 15-year Rye is the distillery’s oldest whiskey, aged in repurposed bourbon barrels before being finished in new barrels built from oak grown on its own Vermont farm. 

Or, go for Whistle Pig 12-year Old World Rye. What they mean by “Old World” is that it’s finished in old Sauternes, Madeira, and Port barrels.

We love Michter’s, and had the pleasure of some of their premium offerings at Maxie’s Michter’s Whiskey Dinner in February. You can find them here, including Michter’s Barrel Strength Rye and Michter’s 10-year Bourbon. 

Maxie’s also hosted a High West Whiskey Dinner this year, and we have a few of their creative blends, including Midwinters’ Night Dram (rye finished in port and French oak barrels), Yippee Ki Yay (rye aged in vermouth and Syrah barrels), and Campfire (a rustic, smoky blend of bourbon, rye and scotch).

Plus, we have rarities from some big names, including Knob Creek 2001 14-year Bourbon, Wild Turkey Master’s Keeper 17-year Bourbon, Redemption 7-year Barrel Proof Rye, Jameson 18-year Irish Whiskey, and Laphroig Lore Scotch.

Moscow Mules: Made in Wisco

Welcome the newest members of your family with a gift set to carry on a cocktail tradition: Moscow Mules. Packed up in wooden crate, it’s got the local ingredients and copper mugs to make a couple of your favorite spicy, refreshing drinks.

Included is a bottle of Black Dot Vodka, crafted in Madison, Wisc. at one of the Midwest’s oldest distilleries, from corn, yeast and water (i.e., gluten-free). It’s the “Swiss Army knife of spirits” – used here at Story Hill BKC, and at Blue’s Egg, to craft our version of the Moscow Mule (the Bluemound Buck, on tap) and all those Bloody Marys. It’s made right here in Wisconsin – and easily beats that dingy fowl Frenchie vodka.

Mix it with a few bottles of Belfast Ginger Beer, handcrafted in Janesville, Wisc. and pour it in a couple of copper mugs, and you can hang with the cool kids.

  • 1 bottle Black Dot Vodka
  • 3 bottles Belfast Ginger Beer
  • 2 copper mugs
