Dale is concocting some amazing prohibition style specialty drinks and will be giving you a sampling of what will be coming up for the month of June. Come on in and check out the "Shanty Speakeasy" with DJ Noel Snow spinning tunes.
Prohibition Edition 50% ABV (100 US PROOF)
Released 90 years after the end of the era which it celebrates, Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition has been crafted as a salute to the notorious Captain William McCoy, who smuggled Cutty Sark blended Scotch whisky into America during the Prohibition era of the 1920s. Captain McCoy’s impeccable reputation for fairness and dealing only in the finest, genuine and unadulterated liquor gave rise to Cutty Sark being referred to as “The Real McCoy”. Prohibition Edition is bottled at 50% ABV (100 Proof – USA Measure), whilst our regular Cutty Sark blend is 40% ABV. This is a “small batch” blend of the finest single malts and top-quality grain whiskies. Hand-selected American oak casks give subtle signature flavours of vanilla and citrus fruits, whilst the overall flavours and finish are extremely smooth and thrillingly complex. The black glass bottle has a cork seal – reflecting the traditions of the time.
Bluecoat American Dry Gin is an aromatic gin with a bouquet designed for a defined palate. This is derived from the "secret" blend of all certified organic botanicals, a list which includes the required juniper berries, along with an American citrus peel selection, sweet orange and lemon peel. The result of Bluecoat's small batch process is a divinely pure and natural-tasting gin that makes a fine cocktail base.
American Distilling Institute: Best of Class and Category, Amber Rum
October 2012; Gold Medal Winner; Ministry of Rum Competition, Chicago, IL
In colonial days New Englanders discovered the joys of barrel aged rums almost by mistake. Those rums that spent time in American oak barrels took on a whole new character. Old Ipswich Tavern Rum is a recreation of this more refined spirit. It combines the great flavors of our White Cap rum with the more robust notes of new White Oak barrels. For those who enjoy their rums with a bold character, Tavern Style Rum is your choice.
When Prohibition outlawed the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages in 1920, many enterprising residents of a small town in Iowa chose to become outlaws – producing a high caliber and much sought-after whiskey known as Templeton Rye, or "The Good Stuff" to those in the know. Based on the original Prohibition era recipe and aged in charred new oak barrels, Templeton Rye provides a smooth finish and a clean getaway.
Jeffersons Bourbon Two Ways
It is finally time to tap the Jefferson's bourbon barrel. The 8 week aged cocktail is ready, offering you the perfect bourbon Manhattan strait from the spout; chilled or as is. Or bring it to another level and make it a Persephone's Manhattan adding a touch of pomegranate juice, a ginger simple syrup and a hint of orange liqueur
Jefferson’s Ocean: Aged at Sea - Inspired by the original Jefferson’s Ocean, which was new-filled bourbon barrels, the Jefferson’s Ocean: Aged at Sea uses older bourbon barrels and travels around the world. stopping in 5 different continents and crossing the equator 4 times, this bourbon truly is a world traveler.
