Hey VinoMan….. 1. I’ve heard that you should always serve red wine with red meat and white wine with fish and poultry. True or false? True AND false.

Two wonderful wines for the Easter holiday or any special occasion are the Barnard Griffin Riesling or Zinzilla Zinfandel. The first has that great crisp apple acidity with some sweetness to balance it. The second is a monster fruit bomb from California. Both will go great with a salty ham or a salty aunt.
Hey, it’s one of those holidays you have to put up with some of the family so you might as well have some wine….
Price: $11.00 Barnard, $17 Zinzilla
Two monster single malt Irish Whiskeys to warm your shamrocks. Both contain some peat, which gives them a scotch-like finish and major depth and body. Dried malt barley with a smoky taste makes this a mouthful o’flavor. Git your Irish on and spend a buck…..St. Patty’s is only once a year.
Time for the real deal….invented by medieval Irish monks (sounds like a mean group) as their own ” Water of Life”, this product is now aged in old bourbon barrels for at least four years before you can get it. A blend of single malt and grain whiskey to ensure smooth flavor with a hint of alcohol. Okay, well….not a hint. It’s STRONG but it is St. Patty’s this month and once a year we can let loose. Break down and get your friends some Uisce Beatha. Don’t be cheap on the one day everyone gets to be Irish -
Bowman Brothers is the number one selling bourbon in my store…..why you ask?
Because this small batch Virginian Straight bourbon is triple distilled and smooth to the finish. Hand crafted in a copper still gives it a caramel nose and the 90 proof alcohol level gives it a mule kick. Balance is this bourbons middle name. The ONLY bourbon I sell with a money back guarantee.
Price: 35 clams
