This sparkling wine will bring back the smiles and tell those you celebrate with that you look forward to making new memories with them.

The Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label, much like the dawn of a new year, is full of promise.

Its Chardonnay component adds the class to the glass and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine.

However you choose to put a capper on this year and embrace the next, treat yourself to Veuve Clicquot.

5 Irish whiskies to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style

This year, St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Saturday, so be sure to celebrate right.

Nothing says “St. Patty” and “party” like Irish whiskey. With its signature smoothness, sweetness, and easy drinkability, you can see why the Irish style is the fastest growing in the whiskey market.

For your celebration, try one of these festive Irish whiskey options:

Green Spot

A favorite of whiskey critics, Green Spot has an aroma and taste of orchard apples and toasted wood with a sprinkling of clove. It is full bodied while balancing the fruity sweetness and toasted oak spiciness into a nicely malted finish with accents of vanilla.

Redbreast 12

Redbreast is a very special single pot still whiskey that is matured for a minimum of twelve years in sherry casks and bourbon barrels. It is robust, assertive, and highly praised among whiskey connoisseurs. Its nose is nutty and rich with notes of dried peels and spice. Its palate exhibits essences of spice and freshly cut citrus fruit with hints of marzipan and sherry. Redbreast has a delightfully long finish full of creamy custard and spice.

The Irishman Founders Reserve

The Founder’s Reserve is the only Irish blended whiskey to contain 100% whiskey distillates from the copper pot still and 0% grain or column still whiskey. This, along with aging in bourbon casks, results in a deeply flavorful whiskey full of cinnamon, peach, and creamy caramel flavors with a long, lingering finish of oak and butterscotch.

Flight of the Earl

Its gentle honey scented edge, accented with vanilla, leads into a palate of more vanilla with caramel, oak, and baking spice on its relatively warm finish. A splash of water really reveals its vanilla and honey notes, and hints of pear and a mellow fade. It is excellent with ginger beer or as the base for a whiskey sour.

Jameson Caskmates

Emerging from a conversation between their head distiller and the head brewer of Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery, Jameson Caskmates is finished in stout-seasoned whiskey casks. While their triple-distilled smoothness is very much intact, notes of cocoa, coffee and butterscotch confirm the stout influence in the classic Irish whiskey.

You can find these, as well as many other types of whiskey, at Wyatt’s Wet Goods, where we offer you superior choice and selection for all your drinking desires. Be sure to check out our giant Irish whiskey and beer sale, March 15-21.

 

Celebrate Halloween with Heritage Hills Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

Heritage Hills Pumpkin Spice Liqueur is an adult pumpkin beverage with sweet notes of oranges, vanilla, and graham crackers layered with cinnamon and cloves. It is seductive and long in the finish, allowing all its pumpkin flavor to shine. It is not overtly syrupy, and pairs well with other spiced liqueurs and whiskeys.

It also performs nicely as a dessert cordial with roasted nuts, ice cream, or fruit cocktails.

The strength of Heritage Hill’s pumpkin cream liqueur is how well it partners with other flavored spirits for a seasonal treat. Try it in an equal part combination with either Disaronno Amaretto or Frangelico for a “Nutty Pumpkin” cocktail. It also pairs well with whipped cream or marshmallow flavored vodkas.

For something specially fitting the change in temperature, mix one part Heritage Hills Pumpkin Spice with two parts of your favorite cinnamon whiskey.

However you choose to enjoy your grownup pumpkin spice this fall, remember to drink responsibly.

Heritage Hills Pumpkin Spice is a perennial autumn release. You can find it, as well as some unique options for mixing partners, at large local, family owned liquor stores like Wyatt’s that offer you a variety of fun, holiday treats.

Captain Morgan Jack-O Blast, the original pumpkin spiced rum

For those looking for something for the season besides pumpkin beer, Captain Morgan returns with Jack-O Blast, the original rum pumpkin spirit.

This limited edition infused rum for fall revolutionizes the shots for the season. By blending their Caribbean rum with some of the favorite flavors of autumn—fresh pumpkin, cinnamon, and brown sugar—Captain Morgan has created a hit for any Halloween party.

Inspired by their Cannon Blast cannon ball-shaped bottle, Jack-O Blast is modelled to look like a Halloween pumpkin. The bold, round bottle even simulates the look of a carved jack-o-lantern when illuminated under a black light.

It is a must-have for any well-stocked bar this Halloween.

Captain Morgan Jack-O Blast is currently available nationwide in a 750 ml bottle for a limited time.

Best enjoyed well chilled as a fall-inspired shot, Jack-O’Blast can also be served as the featured ingredient in a number of seasonal drinks. Try a shot and a half shaken over ice with an ounce of Irish cream or as a warmer with hot cocoa or coffee. You can also add some fresh lime juice and make pumpkin daiquiris.

You can find Jack-O Blast, and other fun seasonal liquors, at local liquors stores like Wyatt’s Wet Goods which offer you an outstanding selection of autumnal items, such as a large variety of pumpkin spirits and beers. When it comes to selection, more is always merrier.
