Ireland has a long tradition of distillation, beginning with Irish monks distilling perfumes as early as the 12th century.  Modifications of this technique lead, in time, to a drinkable spirit and the emergence of widespread whiskey production throughout much of Ireland by the 16th century.

Irish whiskey relies on barley as its primary grain, a characteristic it shares with its neighbor, Scotch. However, unlike Scotch, Irish whiskey traditionally includes both malted and un-malted barley, which adds a fresher, softer grain component to the whiskey’s character.

Irish whiskey comes in several forms. The name of the style depends on the grain used, as well as the distillation process. Traditionally, Irish whiskey was produced in pot stills.  Two styles—single pot still and single malt—continue to be distilled exclusively in copper pot stills from 100% barley, contributing to a more robust, flavorful whiskey. For a lighter, mellower style, choose a blended Irish whiskey which adds other grain whiskeys, produced on a column still, to the mix.

Featured Products
Kilbeggan, Single Grain Irish Whiskey
The aroma begins with a lemon tart complete with pastry shell. There's a bit of vanilla custard there as well. These flavors continue on the palate where the grain flavors reveal themselves a bit more. It's easy to drink with a gentle cinnamon bite to end the dram. Certainly something you could mix with, but don't overlook drinking it neat especially on a warm day.

Proper Twelve, Irish Whiskey
Proper No. Twelve is smooth and balanced with a fine blend of golden grain and full flavored malted barley. It's aged a minimum of three years in bourbon barrel and offers hints of vanilla, honey-like sweetness and toasted wood.
Monthly Specials
2017 Four Vines, Naked Chardonnay, Central Coast
Luscious aromas and flavors shine bright without being hidden under a heavy cloud of oak. Naked Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel to preserve the wine's fruit character, while aging on the lees for six months rounds out the mouthfeel and adds a touch of lemon curd to the finish. Fresh aromas of guava and apricot. Juicy flavors of Pink Lady apple and white peach, along with bright acidity and a crisp finish.

Reg. Price: $9.99

2017 Ca’Donini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Winery of the Month 

Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery

Dr. Konstantin Frank ignited the “Vinifera Revolution” a movement that forever changed the course of wine growing in the Finger Lakes and the United States. Dr. Frank’s vision, knowledge and determination are credited with elevating the New York wine industry from a state of happy mediocrity to a level that today commands world attention.

A European immigrant, Dr. Frank and his family arrived in the United States in 1951. After a brief stay in New York City, Dr. Frank, a professor of plant sciences who held a Ph.D. in viticulture, moved upstate to take a position at Cornell University’s Geneva Experiment Station.

Their approach to great wine making is generational with each Frank family member building upon the foundation that Dr. Konstantin Frank built over fifty years ago. Continuing this legacy means producing the highest quality wines from the highest quality grapes.

They believe that quality starts in the vineyards with careful attention to detail and nurturing of their old vine vineyards first planted by Konstantin in 1958. These old vine vineyards are among the oldest in the United States. While they produce fewer grapes, the quality of the fruit results in more complex wines.
Dr. Konstantin Frank, Blaufrankish, Keuka Lake
Also known as Lemberger, this wine has medium intensity with dominant characters of blackberry, plum, black cherry and chickory and toasted rye. The fresh acidity makes it feel lighter on the palate.


Dr. Konstantin Frank, Rkatsiteli, Keuka Lake
Rkatsiteli, introduced to America by Dr. Konstantin Frank, has its origins on the slopes of mount Ararat, where winemaking began. The cool climate of this area produces a fruity wine with a light herbaceous aroma. Chilled, it goes well with salmon and other fish dishes, Chinese food and hearty dishes which might overpower more delicate wines.
Dr. Konstantin Frank, known as "the father of vinifera" in the Eastern United States, pioneered viticultural methods that a generation of Eastern wineries have used to grow these superb varieties of European grapes.
