26 Hours In Vegas

How does one break down a short trip to Vegas for a whisky show? 11:18 AM Order a cup of coffee and run into the West Coast Brand Ambassador for Macallan.

12:00 PM Head over to Delmonico’s with Jon Trainier, the west coast BA, for a steak lunch and some rare Glenmorangie.

1:45 PM Get the meat-sweats from devouring a massive bone-in rib eye. It was totally worth it.

Whiskies Of The World (Tentative Pour List Announced!)

We have reserved a limited number of seats for public, non-members, at this month’s Whiskies Of The World tasting. Beam Suntory hosts this international extravaganza Friday, March 27th, from 6-8pm, on the 11th Floor at Wingtip.

Six Saint Paddy’s Perks At Wingtip

Whether you need to pick up some libations for the festivities, or if you find yourself in a swarm of green and need a quiet nip, or if you’re feeling the affects of said festivities and need a warm meal, we have what cures your ailments this Saint Paddy’s Day:

Breaking: Whisky Bundles and Whisky Club

We here at Wingtip love whisky. Nay, love is not a strong enough word. We obsess over it, we read about it and drink it every day, and as soon as we can grow gills, we will breathe it. We drink it young, old, neat, and over ice; and whether its lineage is Scottish, American, Japanese, or some other whisky-loving nation, we will give it a fair shake. I think you get the point. We love the Golden Elixir that is the nectar of life–and we want to share it with you.

To that end, Wingtip Bank Of Wine And Spirits manager Kyle Nadeau and myself have worked diligently putting together whisky bundles that will allow you to explore whisky regions from around the world. Each month will feature a three-bottle bundle of whisky for around $200, which will give you the chance to build an amazing whisky library. At the end of the year, if you choose to purchase each month (and if you still have some elixir left in each bottle), your home bar will be better stocked with whiskies than many bars in SF.

What to drink at the club in January

It’s the new year, and we have some new exciting and fun things available to drink in the club. We are working on a new cocktail list, as well as a truncated version that will change monthly, but will always include variants of the Old Fashioned and the Manhattan.

This Thursday, 10am-6pm, Wolverines & Whiskey

The event will feature the Wingtip debut of Wolverine’s new Centennial Bison Leather boot, which they released to celebrate the 100th birthday of the original 1000-Mile Boot. The stunning pebbled bison leather boot is available in tan and brown.

Stocking Your Home Bar For The Holidays

So you’ve got your man cave turned into a turn-of-the-century saloon, replete with spittoons and period-specific American flags. But the only booze in the place is drips and dregs of parties bygone, you know, some oxidized vermouth, triple sec, and a full-bottle of grenadine. Well, have no fear, I am here to lend a hand in the stocking of your liquor cabinet–before your holiday guests arrive. And, yes, any of these spirits can be picked up at Wingtip’s Bank Of Wine & Spirits.
