This un-aged expression from the Highlands is one of its kind. Herbaceous and lime notes penetrate the senses. We cannot speak higher of this tequila.
This is a sweeter blend, mixing fruitiness and spice alongside peaty Islay notes. Simultaneously rich, spicy and lightly smoky.
This brandy really captures and bottles the true essence of Oregon’s state tree. It has the herbal, stomach settling effect of an Italian digestif.
The extra aging and port cask finish produce a silky sweet taste of rich fruits, honey & spice with a beautiful lingering oak finish
Refreshing and invigorating on the nose. The palate is warm, sweet without being overbearing. The finish is long and pleasant.
Essential rum-based ingredient for most Caribbean cocktails. Flavored with lime, almond, and clove. A great replacement for simple syrup.
