Ole Smoky Distillery, the most visited distillery in the world and #1 moonshine brand in the U.S., is expanding distribution of two of its newest moonshine flavors, White Chocolate Strawberry Cream and Banana Pudding Cream. The fan-favorite creams are now available across the country in fun new 50ML Mini Moonshine Jars, as well as the original, 750ML size.

Radeberger Gruppe USA, the #1 German beer importer in the United States, happily announces its new releases for 2022. Arriving in time for the bright days of spring and before the hot days of summer, Radeberger Gruppe USA is promising a new round of happiness with the debut of not one, but two new offerings: Schöfferhofer Juicy Pineapple and Schöfferhofer Wild Cherry, the latter within the brand’s first-ever national variety pack, known affectionately as the Schöfferhofer “Happy Pack.”

Schöfferhofer Juicy Pineapple is the latest addition to the portfolio of award-winning German wheat beers which includes Grapefruit, Pomegranate, and Passion Fruit. This tropically delicious offering is a mix of authentic, unfiltered German hefeweizen beer with 50% pineapple juice and will be available in 11.2oz bottles (6-packs and cases), and in kegs for on-premise locations. Just like all beers in the Schöfferhofer family, Juicy Pineapple is a low alcohol offering at 2.5% ABV and will be available nationally in April 2022.

 The Irishman Single Malt Whiskey

17 long years. Imagine the flavor, the depth, the richness, that develops over all that time in a first-fill Oloroso sherry butt. The Irishman – 17-Year-Old is a superlative Single Malt.

Nero d’Avola Appassimento

Intense red wine with a very bright and complex purple hue. Its impenetrable aspect opens on the nose to a mixture of notes of freshly picked sweet red fruits, plum, cherries in alcohol and vanilla. On the palate it is austere and at the same time gives a fragrant finish. Complexity and pleasantness are the characteristics of this wine.

Trapiche Medalla Malbec 2019

Trapiche winery, located in Mendoza, Argentina at the foothills of the majestic Andres Mountains was founded in 1883. The Trapiche Medalla collection, Argentina’s first premium wine, was originally created to celebrate Trapiche’s 100 year anniversary. While these 100% single varietal wines are aged in a new French oak as a nod to Old World style, they still bring out surprisingly fresh and strong fruit profiles.

Trapiche Medalla Malbec 2019: This wine has flavors of ripe fruits and stands perfectly amalgamated with a spicy and smoky wood.

My favorite BBQ Pairings include grilled chicken, smoked ribs, and veggie kabobs.

Trapiche Medalla Cabernet Sauvignon 2019: This wine has a persistence with soft and ripe tannins. It contains very complex aromas and notes of plums, green peppers and subtle wood. 

Ultimate BBQ Pairings: cheeseburgers and corn on the cob.

Caorunn Highland Strength Gin

Caorunn (pronounced ‘ka-roon’) Gin is pleased to announce that their new higher ABV gin, Caorunn Highland Strength, created specifically to enhance cocktails, is now available in the US (SRP, $40/750ml).
Produced at the Balmenach Distillery – a working whisky distillery located in the Scottish Highlands – Gin Master Simon Buley crafted Caorunn Highland Strength at a bold 54% ABV (alcohol by volume) to amplify the local Scottish botanicals that distinguish the original Caorunn Gin. “We find that with this higher ABV, the alcohol quickly evaporates in your mouth, leaving behind our beautiful botanical flavors that linger on your palate with a luxurious finish,” explained Buley. 
This stronger version of Caorunn Gin utilizes Scotland’s unique natural resources by infusing five locally foraged Celtic botanicals (rowan berry, bog myrtle, heather, dandelion, and Coul Blush apple) with six traditional gin botanicals in the world’s only working Copper Berry Chamber, creating a singular flavor that deserves to be savored.

Oklahoma Beer: A Handcrafted History 

Notoriously known as a “flyover state” in regards to alcohol, Oklahoma has a unique brewing history. Entering the Union as a dry state, Oklahoma struggled with bootleggers and the choc beer brewers of Indian Territory. Prohibition wasn’t fully repealed in Oklahoma until 1959, when liquor sales were permitted, but a few pioneers navigated a web of restrictions to produce quality local beers. Brewpubs opened a new chapter in 1992 as a generation thirsty for handcrafted beers led to a resurgence in the industry. Author and proprietor of BeerisOK.com Brian Welzbacher unravels the stories behind the passionate breweries that stood up to tyranny and paved a path from Dust Bowl to full glass.
