Product Spotlight: Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream

 

 

 

So apparently, there’s wine with ice cream in it.

Before you dismiss this creamy concoction as just another “measly wine-flavored ice cream,” let’s get one thing straight: it’s not. Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream, with their up-to-5% alcohol by volume content ice cream, can actually get you pleasantly buzzed. (Let us conveniently remind you that your average beer ranges from 4-6% ABV.)

The company’s ice cream even comes in flavors like Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet, Red Raspberry Chardonnay, Peach White Zinfandel, and Riesling, among others. If you’re extra-keen on having breakfast, Mercer’s Dairy ships all their products overnight on dry ice to anywhere in the grand ole’ USA. Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream can also be found at different locations across the states — so that adventurous winos everywhere can get their fix.

Wine Spotlight: Luc Belaire Rosé

 

 

BELAIRE ROSE is handcrafted from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah grapes selected for their vibrant, fresh character. Each of these three grapes adds something special to the wine:

• Grenache gives body, warmth and hints of blackberry and blackcurrant
• Cinsault adds aromatic cherry blossom on the nose, finesse, and a supple texture to the finish
• Syrah accounts for BELAIRE ROSÉ’s beautiful color and provides roundness and a toasty richness to the wine.

Carefully aged before release, the blend is imbued with a delightful effervescence, resulting in a beautiful, deep red sparkling Rosé with aromas of strawberry and blackcurrant. A final liqueur de dosage addition of 100% Syrah adds a sweet - but not too sweet - nuance, resulting in a perfect harmony of aroma, taste, body, and finish.

 

Each bottle of BELAIRE ROSÉ is born in southeastern France's Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region, the stunningly beautiful home of the famed coastal cities of Marseilles, Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez, Antibe, Grasse, Toulon - and the world's finest Rosé wines.

Roughly 150 miles wide from the Cote d'Azur (French Riviera), Monaco, and French Alps along the Italian border to the east to the Rhone River valley to the west and Mediterranean to the south, this picturesque setting provides a lush backdrop for the crafting of the wines that have made the region famous.

Here, amid sun-drenched vineyards cooled by the Le Mistral sea winds, against the stunning backdrop of the snow-capped French Alps, wines have been made for more than 2,500 years. This rich heritage of wine craft and perfect terroir for cultivating the grapes of the Rosé blend can be experienced in each glass of BELAIRE ROSÉ.

 

 

About the company:

According to legend, the monk who first tasted sparkling wine famously exclaimed, "Come quickly - I am tasting the stars!" The monk's "stars" - the tens of millions of bubbles in each bottle of sparkling wine - were the "big bang" of the world's love affair with bubbles.

At our Maison, established in 1898, 6th generation winemakers oversee production of each bottle of BELAIRE, ensuring that the perfect balance is realized in each bottling, maintaining the delicate, refreshing blend characteristic of our cuvées. Read More

Alcohol Spotlight: Svedka Launches 100 Proof Grapefruit Jalapeño Flavor

 

 

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, SVEDKA Vodka announces the newest additions to its award-winning line of vodkas with the debut of SVEDKA Grapefruit Jalapeno and SVEDKA 100 Proof. Further innovating and extending SVEDKA's superior line of flavored vodkas, SVEDKA Grapefruit Jalapeno capitalizes on consumer interest in fusing sweet and spicy, combining a bright citrus flavor with a hint of heat. Additionally, SVEDKA 100 Proof is the brand's entry into the 100-proof segment, which further leverages SVEDKA's reputation and commitment to delivering exceptional quality and a pure and smooth flavor profile.

Both new products will be available nationwide, March 2015 (varies by market), with Grapefruit Jalapeno in 50ML (MSRP $1.99), 375ML (MSRP $6.99), 750ML (MSRP $12.99), 1L (MSRP $16.99) and 1.75L (MSRP $21.99) and 100 Proof in 375ML (MSRP $8.45), 750ML (MSPR $15.35), and 1L (MSRP $18.45).

SVEDKA Grapefruit Jalapeno is leading the "sweet/heat" charge in the beverage industry by pairing sweet and tart, with hot and spicy. The proprietary grapefruit and jalapeno-flavored vodka begins with a bright, citrus entry, building to a smooth hint of heat, and intensifying with a tart, juicy finish and jalapeno bite.

SVEDKA 100 Proof is a grain neutral spirit formulation with a smooth, clean taste and a crisp, arid sensation that intensifies to the end with a deep, warm finish.

SVEDKA Grapefruit Jalapeno and 100 Proof are the latest additions to be introduced stateside by the Swedish-imported vodka brand, which also boasts a range of flavors including: SVEDKA Strawberry Lemonade, SVEDKA Mango Pineapple, SVEDKA Strawberry Colada, SVEDKA Colada, SVEDKA Orange Cream Pop, and SVEDKA's core flavors – Cherry, Citron, Clementine, Raspberry, Vanilla and Peach.

1 Whole Jalapeno

4 Parts Grapefruit Juice

Remove the top of a jalapeno and deseed it thoroughly. Pour chilled SVEDKA Grapefruit Jalapeno into the jalapeno and enjoy.

Alcohol Spotlight: Rogue Hazelnut Spice Rum

 

 

HAZELNUT SPICE RUM is made with freshly roasted hazelnuts from Kirk Family Filberts, a small family orchard adjacent to the Rogue Farm in Oregon's Wigrich Appellation.

Hazelnut Spiced Rum instantly reveals sweet aromas of toasted hazelnut and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, a sweet blend of vanilla, cinnamon and clove set the stage for an oaky, vanilla and bourbon-like finish.

 

 

About the company:

In 1987, some like-minded Rogues had an idea to start a “Brew Pub”. The next year, a Revolution in beer began in the basement of the Rogue Public House in Ashland, Oregon. The Brewery and Pub opened in October 1988 with the brewery housed beneath a 60 seat Pub. The first beers brewed were American Amber and Oregon Golden. Read More

Beer Spotlight: Glutenberg Blonde Ale

 

 

More than a year of research was invested in the development of our first beer. The Glutenberg Blonde and a new brewery, BSG, were born. Beer lovers will appreciate its complexity. Although simple in appearance, it reveals a high level of refinement. Dry and citrusy, the Glutenberg Blonde is an easy to drink beer that is in a class of its own.

 

Style: Blonde Ale
Alcohol per volume: 4.5%
Ingredients: water, millet, corn, demerara sugar, hops, yeast
Colour: blonde and clear
Nose: floral hops, white pepper, pears and fennel
Flavours: white pepper, green tea and lemon peel
IBU: 15
Serving temperature: 46 - 50 °F

 

 

About the company:

BSG was founded on the collaboration between long-time friends, Julien Niquet and David Cayer. Julien, a born entrepreneur, always wanted to have his own company. Were it not for his gluten intolerance, it is unlikely BSG would have ever been launched. David, on the other hand, never really dreamt of being an entrepreneur, until he stepped in!

The idea of brewing gluten-free beer was first discussed at the beginning of winter 2011. Thanks to the support of friends and relatives, they were able to raise the funds required to buy the equipment and recruited the right brewer, Gabriel Charbonneau, who saw their ad on Facebook!

The Newcastle Scotch Ale collaboration is a limited-time offering from Newcastle and Caledonian that represents the best of English and Scottish brewing: a rich, full-flavored and fulfilling Scottish ale with toffee notes at 6.4 percent ABV and 40 IBUs. Scotch Ale is a bold yet balanced beer that will please lifelong Newcastle fans as well as more adventurous drinkers.

“Newcastle Scotch Ale is a well-balanced, malt-forward brew with a delightful velvety finish,” said actor, blogger and beer aficionado Wil Wheaton. “Basically, Newcastle and Caledonian made a kick-ass beer that does not suck.”

Beer Spotlight: Southern Tier 2XMAS Ale

 

 

Swedish flags are a fairly common sight in our part of the country. Holiday parties often have warm concoctions of spices and booze at the ready to knock the ice off of toes while raising spirits. We were inspired by a “Glogg” party, deciding on the spot to brew a beer that pays tribute to this Nordic tradition. 2xMas Ale combines traditional brewing ingredients with figs, orange peels, cardamom, cinnamon, clove and ginger root. It’s a holiday addition to the 2X line and another reason to toast to the season, but unlike Glogg, we recommend serving this one chilled.

 

FOOD PAIRINGS:  Particularly tasty when paired with sausages, korv, fish, pickled herring, rich cheeses, holiday cookies & cake.

 

AVAILABILITY: Release begins in late Autumn / 12oz (6pk and 24 bottle cases) / 1/2 keg, 1/6 keg

 

 

About the company:

Southern Tier Brewing Company is committed to providing delicious, accessible and unique products. In doing so, we aim to change the way people drink beer.

Our mission is to provide our customers with consistently fresh, clean, American craft ales and lagers that stand on their own merit.

A close look at our logo reveals a brewers star. It may be just one diminutive graphic, but it plays a huge role in our brewery. The star represents purity in six crucial facets of our work; water, hops, grain, malt, yeast and brewer. We believe that by maintaining the highest quality possible in these areas, we will produce world-class beverages.
