1. 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Vodka

    Proof70 (35% ABV)
    Size750mL
    Situated in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, the town of Rigby, Idaho is best known as the birthplace of television. In 1923, Philo Taylor Farnsworth created the blueprints for the first television set while a student at Rigby High School. Today, just a few miles down the street from Rigby High, Bill Scott — 44° North's Master Distiller — is hard at work crafting another batch of 44° North Vodka.

    Distilled exclusively from Idaho Russet Burbank potatoes, 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Vodka are the first vodkas ever approved to wear the Idaho Potato Commission's official seal of approval. Once the locally-sourced potatoes are brought to the distillery, Scott mashes and ferments them before distilling the wash through his five-column, multi-plate copper still. The potatoes, which contain unusually high levels of antioxidants and sugars, give the vodka its smooth, silky texture.

    In order to produce 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Vodka, Scott steeps the vodka he distills in natural mountain huckleberries for ten days (huckleberries are Idaho's official state fruit). The huckleberries impart a slightly candied aroma to the vodka, and contribute a blueberry-like, tart sourness to the finish. 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Vodka earned a score of 90-95 points from Wine Enthusiast and was named "a perfect sipping vodka when chilled"by The Luxist.

    44° North Mountain Huckleberry has been steeped in cherries and huckleberries, respectively, each vodka is brought to proof with water from the Snake River and then bottled by hand. 44° North Vodka is not only made in Idaho, but also represents the very best of what Idaho agriculture has to offer.

  3. La Fée Absinthe Parisienne

    Proof136 Proof (68% ABV)
    Size750mL
    Absinthe, which is a spirit traditionally derived from grand wormwood, anise and fennel, has a long and colorful history. While its origins remain unclear, the use of medicinal wormwood dates back to ancient Egypt. In the 18th and 19th centuries, absinthe was distributed by the French Army to its troops as a cure for several digestive diseases, including dysentery and tropical fever. When the troops returned home, they brought their taste for absinthe with them. The popularity of absinthe grew, particularly among bohemian artists and writers such as Ernest Hemingway, Vincent van Gogh and Oscar Wilde, all known to be absinthe drinkers.

    Spurred by the temperance movement and winemakers, absinthe became associated with hallucinogenic effects. One critic claimed that absinthe would "make you crazy and criminal,"and that it would "provoke epilepsy and tuberculosis." In 1905, Swiss farmer Jean Lanfray murdered his family after consuming considerable quantities of wine, brandy and two glasses of absinthe. While Lanfray had a history of alcoholism, teetotalers seized the moment and passed a referendum making absinthe illegal; it was not until 2007 that absinthe was allowed to be legally sold again.

    La Fée Absinthe Parisienne is distilled by the Cherry Rocher Distillery in conjunction with Marie-Claude Delahaye, the world renowned absinthe expert and historian. "La Fée captures the aroma and taste that great writers and artists such as Rimbaud, Toulouse-Lautrec and Vincent van Gogh enjoyed at the end of the 19th century," says Delahaye.

    The absinthe is distilled in accordance with a 19th century French recipe that calls for nine unique herbs and spices: grand wormwood, petite wormwood, fennel, green anise, star anise, hyssop, coriander and two secret ingredients that remain a closely-guarded secret. The ingredients are macerated together with a beet-based spirit inside a copper-pot still, before the absinthe is brought to proof with demineralised water.

    La Fée Absinthe Parisienne has a rich, green color along with an aroma of spicy herbs, anise, fennel and fresh grass. With the addition of water, the aroma gives way to notes of liquorice and mint and ends with touches of herbs, anise and root. The absinthe earned five stars from the Difford's Guide, which called it "Excellent." It also earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2008 and the Los Angeles International Wine and Spirits Competition in 2009.

    Size750mL
    Mizu is made at the Munemasa Shuzo Co. distillery in Arita, Japan. Established in 1985, it's rooted in a rich heritage of artisanship as the Munemasa family opened a small sake brewery over 120 years ago in Hiroshima, but due to WWII, it had to close. Today, the distillery is located in the Saga prefecture in the small town of Arita, the birthplace of Japanese porcelain, where pristine waters and rich farmland provide ideal conditions for distilling. Munemasa Shuzo is closely intertwined with local flavors, harvests and soft waters. "Creating harmony between the land, farmer and distillery", all their ingredients are sourced from nearby farms and Master Distiller (toji) Hirofumi Okoba cultivates close relationships with local farmers.

    Producing handcrafted, single distilled traditional Japanese shochu, their Mizu Shochu is more concentrated than the average modern schochu. Bottled at 70 proof, this higher concentration pays homage to old styles of shochu and brings out the spirit's subtle complexities.

    On the east of Arita, there are beautiful lemongrass fields that have become a source of local pride. Inspired by this pristine nature, this Mizu Lemongrass Shochu is handcrafted and single distilled from a mash of local rice, freshly harvested organic lemongrass and the pure waters of Black Hair Mountain. Master Distillers Shinji Wasa and Hirofumi Okoba decided to put an innovative twist on traditional shochu and introduce lemongrass for the very first time for an even silkier spirit. The lemongrass is added to the rice-based mash only 3 days before distillation – just in time for the oils to blend with local rice.

    Mizu Lemongrass Shochu was awarded 92 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge.

  10. BarSol Pisco Supremo Mosto Verde Italia

    Proof82 (41% ABV)
    Size750mL
    Pisco is a type of brandy that is distilled in Peru and Chile using grape juice. BarSol is the premier artisanal pisco from Peru. Distilled at the Bodega San Isidro from the pisco grapes of the Valley of Ica, it's the brainchild of Diego Loret de Mola and Carlos Ferreyros. BarSol uses the classic pisco pot distillation method traditionally practiced in Peru since the 16th century. Hand-crafted in small batches and estate-bottled, BarSol is bottled at proof. The grape juice is fermented into wine before being distilled, creating an exceptional spirit of exquisite purity, clarity, and smoothness. Bodega San Isidro is built on decades upon decades of tradition, having been established in the 1800s.

    Grapes are the only ingredient, meaning there is nothing added at any stage of the process — not even water. Once the grapes from the vineyards surrounding the distillery are at their peak maturity, they are picked and pressed gently using only their own weight, extracting the "yemma" or free-flow grape juice. This process results in a softer spirit. After wild fermentation with naturally-occurring yeast, the juice is distilled a single time to bottle strength, before being aged for a year in neutral containers that preserve the purity of the delicate and aromatic spirit.

    "Mosto Verde" ("green must" in Spanish) refers to the technique where the wine is distilled before the fermentation is complete, which is said to preserve the fresh, fruity, and floral aromas of the grape. BarSol Pisco Supremo Mosto Verde Italia is crafted with the Italia grape varietal is known for its fruitiness and juiciness which are able to shine through beautifully in this rich and smooth 41.8-proof spirit.
