Knob Creek Bourbon Tasting

Saturday, September 29th 2018 3-5pm

There’s no faking full bourbon flavor. It has to be earned. So that’s what we do in Clermont: we ear it. We start by selecting the finest grains. And we finish by meticulously aging our whiskey in white oak barrels with maximum char, for an unmistakable richness and signature sweetness. It’s the natural way. And there’s just no cheating nature.

We will be sampling:

Knob Creek Bourbon

Knob Creek Single Barrel

Knob Creek Rye

BenRaich Scotch & Slane Irish Whiskey Tasting

$15.00

Friday, September 28th7-9pm $15.00

The story of BenRiach is typical of the great Speyside distilleries. Built in 1898, the distillery is sited amongst the rolling barley fields that rise to the foothills of the Grampian Mountains. The barley used in crafting the whisky was grown around the distillery and the water was, and still is, drawn through the rock that lies deep below the distillery. The barley, harvested from the fields surrounding the distillery, would be spread across the floors of the malting loft to germinate. Peat, cut from the hills, fired the kiln and produced the heat required to control the germination process, and the distinctive peat scented smoke would be seen curling upwards from the malting chimneys throughout the year. The distillery manager would oversee the slow and deliberate crafting process of The BenRiach whisky – managing the transformation from malted barley to wash, to distilled spirit and into high quality oak casks, in which the whisky would then mature. This was the beginning of the The BenRiach story.

Bulleit Bourbon Tasting

Saturday, September 22nd12-3pm

Bulleit Bourbon is inspired by the whiskey pioneered by Augustus Bulleit over 150 years ago. Only ingredients of the highest quality are used. The subtlety and complexity of Bulleit Bourbon come from its unique blend of rye, corn, and barley malt, along with special strains of yeast and pure Kentucky limestone filtered water. Due to its especially high rye content, Bulleit Bourbon has a bold, spicy character with a finish that’s distinctively clean and smooth. Medium amber in color, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas. Mid-palate is smooth with tones of maple, oak and nutmeg. Finish is long, dry, and satiny with a light toffee flavor.

 

Join us for a sampling and a mini-cocktail!

Sagamore Rye Tasting & Meet the Master Distiller Brian Treacy

Thursday, September 20th 2018 7-8:30pm

Meet & Greet with Master Distiller Brian Treacy

We are proud to call Baltimore our home and since April 2017, have been distilling and aging our proprietary straight rye whiskey from our distillery on Baltimore’s waterfront. It takes 4 years to get to the perfect taste so stay tuned!

But we wanted to share our Maryland-style rye whiskey before our distillery was built. So we asked our friends in Indiana to distill our two different proprietary mash bills for us. They make great whiskies out there and we couldn’t be prouder of the product. Once the whiskey is aged, it’s shipped to our Maryland distillery in barrels and our distilling team proofs it with Sagamore Farm spring water, before hand-bottling and labeling each one.

ZYR Vodka Tasting

Saturday, September 8th3-5pm

Among all other distilled spirits, vodka stands alone - it is the cleanest tasting, most versatile choice for sipping neat, on the rocks or in a ZYR Vodka Martini. The ZYR recipe is velvety smooth with a clean, fresh and slightly sweet finish. Like many of the world's other closely guarded formulas, ZYR is the result of select ingredients, recipe, process, controls and tradition. Because of ZYR's proprietary 9 • 5 • 3 formula and the highest criteria for only the best raw ingredients, vodka has never tasted so clean or felt so smooth, so creamy. Centuries of Russian vodka making traditions are integrated with the most innovative filtration and distillation technology available today. Only after this process is completed can the vodka be called ZYR.

Belle Isle Moonshine Tasting

Saturday, September 8th12-3pm 

Moonshine has gotten a bad rap over the years, but we’re out to spread the good word (and good moonshine). So how did this all start?

We’ve got to go back to the beginning, when early settlers in Virginia first began experimenting with native corn. Colonists quickly found that corn made for better beer - much better than the British ale they were used to. And after a few runs of corn through a shabby still, the corn whiskey “moonshine” was born.

Fast-forward a few years, where moonshine faded from popularity as barrel-aged whiskies became all the rage. Why? By aging spirits, they could mask the harsh flavors of unperfected moonshine.

It wasn’t until 1860s that moonshine would come back into the public eye, all thanks to Civil War soldiers taking a surplus of corn rations and elevating the moonshine distilling process by using copper kettles as higher quality stills. Where did this happen? On none other than Belle Isle itself.

With Prohibition following a few decades later, what Virginia knew and loved as moonshine became synonymous with all sorts of unregulated, untaxed, and impure distillates being distributed illegally throughout the country. By the time Prohibition was all said and done, the word “moonshine” had left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth.

That’s why, when brothers-in-law Vince Riggi and Brian Marks sat down together over a drink in 2013, they realized their dream of seeing moonshine on the shelf and in the hands of people everywhere. And not moonshine like we’ve come to know it; they dreamed up a premium moonshine, made using the same techniques passed down by our American ancestors, distilled from 100% organic corn, and made with only the best ingredients.

Fenocchio Barolo & Barbera Tasting

$15.00

Tuesday, August 28th 2018  7-8:30pm $15.00

Meet the Winemaker Claudio Fenocchio!

Five generations of Fenocchios have been producing wine from their holdings in the heart of the Bussia in Monforte d’Alba since 1894. Most of the production was sold locally up until 1964, when the ambitious and energetic Giacomo Fenocchio took over for the estate. His goal was to make the finest wines in all of Barolo, so he purchased prime parcels in some of the best crus in the Langhe – including Villero in Castiglione Falletto and Cannubi.

Today, Giacomo’s son Claudio has taken over winemaking duties for the estate, continuing his father’s tradition of making pristine wines from the greatest vineyards in Barolo. Use whichever word you want, minimalist, traditionalist, non-interventionist, – all that matter is that Claudio’s wines exhibit a level of terroir clarity that is only found in the top echelon of producers. If you’re looking for the next star winemaker in Italy, look no further. Just recently, The New York Times rated Fenocchio number 2 in a tasting of Barolos – coming behind only Elio Altare and ahead of Elio Grasso, Massolino, and Vietti. Claudio manages some 7 hecatres of vineyards in Barolo, Castiglione Falletto and of course, the Bussia of Monforte. Total average annual production is about 3,000 cases.

We will be serving:

2016 Barbera Superiore   

2013 "Classic" Barolo       

2013 Bussia Barolo           

2013 Castellero Barolo
