Barrel to Bottle Episode 64: Port 2016Posted: December 10, 2018|Categories: Wine
If you take out all the glamorous wine categories… Binny’s Wine Buyer Bill Newton is responsible for everything else. One of his favorite categories is Port, which is getting extra attention for the release of the 2016 vintage – the first declared Port vintage since 2011. What Port lacks in glamour, it more than makes up for in intensity and age-ability. Bill shares a favorite vintage aged Port and talks about this great vintage. Stick around for the Q&A segment, when the team answers your question about red wine and cold weather.

Our goal - to blend California terroir with a tropical treasure of the Midwest, the paw paw fruit. We’re proud to announce the arrival of this collaborative project, Paw² Prints. This blend of young and old barrel aged wild ale bursts with tropical aromas and flavors. A refreshingly complex ale - that showcases the rarely recognized, yet perplexingly delicious paw paw.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Rudolph's Cranberry CocktailPosted: November 28, 2018|Categories: Spirits
WGN Radio asked us to create a holiday cocktail to share with their listeners. We had a lot of fun putting together a mix of flavors we thought fully embodied the holiday spirit. We went with our latest batch of Buffalo Trace handpicks as the base and added in ingredients you may have available on your bar cart for an easy, but delightfully tasteful cocktail that even Rudolph would be proud to have his name on.
