Lost Ark Brownie Cream Liquor

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

The Lost Ark Brownie Caramel Cream Liquor is my personal choice for the colder months. It's perfect sweet and creamy. Matched perfectly with the great taste of salty caramel gooey brownie. It's sure to warm you up on its own or in your hot chocolate.

Smirnoff Kissed Caramel

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

A little bit of this, a little bit of apple cider, mix 'em together and you got yourself a 'lil caramel apple cider. Perfect winter beverage warm or cold.

Cantera Negra Cafe

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

This liqueur is for coffee lovers! The coffee and tequila blend may seem strange, but the pairing tastes very natural when you try this product. A genuine coffee flavor with little to tequila taste.

Jean Vesselle Brut

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

When I was a young person I tried this wine and fell in love with it. Twenty years later it remains my favorite champagne I have ever had. Layers upon layers of complexity make this the gold standard of champagne.

Kentucky Coffee Cold Brew

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

Actual black coffee without any cream and a great flavor. Not too sweet or too rich.

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Barrel Proof

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

I am not a fan of regular Wild Turkey or 101, but Rare Breed Barrel Proof surprised me. Very cherry forward ending with a hint of mulling spice. While I certainly enjoyed this bourbon neat, I also found it fit well in a New York Sour.

- Matthew

Jean-Louis

Blanc de Blancs

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

An inexpensive bottle with an expensive taste. My favorite way to enjoy it is in an apple cider mimosa or paired with Sanoy's staff pick for a flavorful cocktail perfect for any occasion.

Port City Pizza Night

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

Port City's Pizza Night is a fun amber lager. Medium-bodied with hints of cheddar and oak notes. If you're looking to try something out of the ordinary try a Pizza Night.

Mclintock Ginger Lime Cordial

It's the season for a nice hot cup of tea with lemon so why not add a little something special to it during these cold months?!

- Sanoy

Bubba's Burnt Sugar Whiskey

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

This is definitely a go-to for me! The lemon flavor isn't overpowering and is just the right amount of smoothness. It's great by itself or in a mixed drink!

Dewey Outsiders Only

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

This is an absolute banger of a barleywine! The 2023 edition of “Outsiders Only” by Dewey Beer Co. was given a chance to nap in our store pick Ross and Squibb Distillery and Remus barrels from last year. The “raisin-esque” nose on this dark brew is followed by rich malt flavors and a clear spice of the delightful bourbon. Enjoy it at room temperature or SLIGHTLY chilled to get the perfect flavor out of this delightful treat. A bourbon snifter or tulip glass will serve you well, in this situation. CHEERS, Y’ALL!   - Alex

Rascal Pinot Noir

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

I really like the Rascal Pinot Noir because it is very fruit-forward. Red cherry and plum notes on the front finishing with sweet vanilla and a hint of earthy basil. They also support the humane society!

Mobtown The Octopus

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

Juicy, slightly sweet, and a touch of bitterness. It's everything I personally look for in a good IPA. The Octopus by Mobtown has become one of my favorites. If you're looking for a spinoff try the Negative Octopus as well!

Right Coast

Wild Berry Whips

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

You know I didn't think about this! Right Coast Whips are a perfect lil sipper while playing video games. Imagine 7.5% blue Gogurt, that's what you get with the Wild Berry. They're bussin'!!!!

Proper 12 Apple

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

Proper 12 Apple is the only apple whiskey I've ever had that has a true apple flavor. One sip tastes like taking a bite straight out of a green apple. I enjoy Proper 12 Apple on the rocks or mixed with a little bit of ginger ale.

Knobel Tennessee Whiskey

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

Knobel Tenessee Whiskey is my favorite fall spirit. Showcasing notes of apple, cinnamon, and caramel, Knobel perfectly blends sweet and spicy characteristics into a whiskey that's great for drinking neat or on the rocks. To top it all off, Knobel is owned by Baltimore boy Mike Rowe.

Sono 1420 Orange Kush

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

Crushes aren’t just for summer. A convenient and smooth RTD that packs a punch at 14.20% ABV, made with premium vodka and triple sec. Great for brunch if you’re not a fan of mimosas, or if you just wanna kick back with a refreshing, quality cocktail.

Vice Caramel Apple Fruited Sour

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

This one doesn’t get too extravagant in mixing so many flavors. It sticks to something that makes sense for a sour beer and stays simple. Great sour taste with hints of caramel that don’t overpower. Great ABV to boot.

Lost Ark Goetze's Carmel Cream Liquor

DeliveryBox-620 (2)_edited.jpg

I’m a coffee lover, and coffee needs a mate, and that mate is Goetze's Caramel Cream. The creamy base and sweet bite of this cream liqueur pair perfectly and help me start my morning just right. The familiar Goetze caramel flavors of my childhood really bring it all on home. I also do an espresso martini with this and Black Joe Coffee Liqueur.
