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.

April Whisky Bundle: A Trio From Springbank Distillery

It’s time for another whisky bundle to add to your growing collection of amazing gold liquid at your home bar. This month Kyle and I put together a fun little ditty from the region of Campbeltown. Tucked away in the South West Corner of Scotland, Campbeltown used to be home to as many as 34 distilleries. Now there are only two left, and they produce some very exciting whiskies indeed. The whiskies in this month’s bundle all come from one distillery; two are homages to closed distilleries, and the other is one of our all-time favorite daily drams. These three bottles would normally retail together for $226.97, but purchased as a bundle, we’re offering them for just $190. Without further ado, our April Whisky Bundle of Joy, featuring Springbank Distillery.

We are thrilled to invite you to this Friday’s Valhalla Dinner, hosted by Highland Park’s Brand Ambassador, Martin Daraz.

In fact, three of these expressions are no longer available for purchase, making this an extraordinary opportunity to be in the presence of greatness.

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.

Independent Whisky Bottlers

These are companies that buy either new-make spirit from distilleries or barreled spirit from brokers, and then treat the whisky however they see fit. They can continue to age the whisky as long or as briefly as they want. They can put the whisky into another type of barrel to finish it and give it new flavors that the distillery didn’t think of. They can bottle at cask strength, or any strength (as long as it remains above 40% ABV/80 Proof). They pretty much have carte blanche to do whatever they want to the whisky, and this can be a great thing. It expands the possibilities of Scotch creation, and gives us–the consumer–more unique expressions of existing whiskies. Some of my favorite whiskies have come from independent bottlers.
