Pick Your Own

Posted by Ethan Kelley on Oct 21st 2020

The change in seasons brings us all from the beaches to the orchards. The bounty of agriculture in the Autumn stirs something in us all. We spend our days in sunshine soaked orchards picking the last of the apples from the tree with some waning in our hearts as we all are aware that before long winter will be upon us, it is a last hoorah.

We celebrate these moments trekking out to pumpkin patches on rustic hayrides. We watch with nostalgia as little ones chase their friends through acres long corn mazes. There is a sense of magic in the air as we head home with a farmstand bounty in our bags and promise ourselves that this is the year we will learn how to bake an apple pie.

Our dinners shift from the lightness of crisp salads to something heartier, something a little warmer, and just a bit more comforting like the threadbare flannel shirt on your back. As you sit there enjoying the stillness of a fall evening convinced that you can hear the leaves tumble from the trees, and while that failed apple pie smolders in the oven, might we suggest, go pick your own bottle. Something as comforting, familiar, and awe inspiring as the Harvest moon itself.

Angel’s Envy Straight Bourbon

A robust American masterpiece with rich flavors of raisins and hazelnuts that round out an exemplary example of cask finished Bourbons, and complex enough to splash into your cooking for added culinary panache.

Canadian Club Sherry Cask

There is simply nothing more familiar and comforting than the embrace of Canadian whiskies, and this bottle demonstrates this perfectly with flavors of warm toffee and vanilla cake all topped with cinnamon, apple, and walnut flavors.

Caol Ila 12 year

Because sometimes the soul needs a little warming, the gentle Islay smoke found in this 12 year old single malt is integrated with elegance as aromas and flavors like brine, salt, and toasted oak provide a glowing ember on an otherwise chilled night on the terrace.
