We are in the craft spirits business! 

As of July 1st we can now offer you a portfolio of fine spirits centered on the excellent line-up from Craft Distillers.   We plan to grow the spirits portfolio, slowly, in a similar fashion to our wine portfolio; choosing producers who focus on local ingredients, use care in the process and who show a sensitivity to the environment-- and oh yes--who also stress flavor and character! 

We are happy to be part of this growing movement of craft spirits and look forward to being a part of it for a long time to come.
