Derek's Pick   (UK)

Hallows & Fentimans Ginger Brew

Tasting Notes: The ultimate alcoholic ginger beer from the 1905 recipe that made Fentiman's famous in the U.K. for a century to come. This special recipe was given to John Hollows by Thomas Fentiman as dowry for his daughter's hand in marriage. Hollow proceeded to run one of the Fentiman's brewing halls and the result is this wonderful long lived brand. Using traditional old school fermentation, which involves only the addition of yeast and sugar to the fresh botanical ginger brew, it takes nearly two weeks to ferment and the result is one of the most festive and refreshing ways to drink available. So creamy smooth and not overly spicey. Definitely a new favourite.

Price: $5.99

Ken's Pick   (Morocco)

AOG Zenata Domaine Ouled Thaleb Signature Chenin Blanc 11.5% abv

Tasting Notes: I tried this wine blind a couple weeks back, and was asked "what country?". I knew this was a loaded question. I guessed Northern Portugal, so at least I kind of got the latitude. Morocco has a long history of wine making, punctuated by various occupancies (Roman, Muslim, French). Domaine Ouled Thaleb is named after the tribe that owns the vineyards’ land and works at the winery. Ouled Thaleb led the renewal of the Moroccan wine industry in the 1990’s. With its high mountains (Atlas) and maritime influence, Morocco is a great area for growing grapes. As they say, location (up), location (near a cool ocean) location (shielded from the Sahara by the mountains). 100% Chenin Blanc. Eye: light gold, lime tints, clear rim. Aroma: lemon verbena, washed stones, pear, green snap pea. Palate: clean, bright, with citrus, jicama, green apple, good balance of acid and fruit, medium length finish. A very attractive summer sipper. Pair with fish, soft cheeses, light poultry dishes, vegetarian casseroles.

Price: $$23.99 750 ml.

Warren's Pick   (USA)

1792 Single Barrel Bourbon

Tasting Notes: On the nose sweet butterscotch with lots of lemon, citrus. Light notes of ginger, honey, and Fuji apple pervade. Palate: Caramel-forward, candy-like but with the obvious bite and heat of a rye. Young wood (sawdust) and gently roasted almonds dance alongside specks of Meyer lemon. The body is medium-thin, lingering slightly but not blasting your palate. The overall mix is good, but it does have a sharp, alcoholic bite at the end. While caramel notes and a smooth mouth-feel certainly come to mind, bold and brash (as 1792’s source materials credit) may be a little far. This is not the sort of bourbon that would get into a bar fight. Instead, it’s perfect for sipping on a warm summer day as the sun sets, or mixing into a low-sugar (potentially high-citrus) cocktail. 1792’s versatility is impressive. Like an ambitious, well-aged wine, 1792 knows it is delicious without needing to show off. Just a little more follow-through – less of a sharp end note – would be the perfect cap to a great drink.

Price: $99.99

Derek's Pick   (Australia)

Wakefield Clare Valley Cabernet

Tasting Notes: Deep purple color. Fresh aromas and flavors of blackberry, plum, spearmint, chocolate silk pie, new leather, olives, and licorice with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and an even, interesting, medium-length finish. A palate-pleasing, juicy Cabernet overflowing with fruit and herbaceous style. Exceptional. Best Buy. Ranked as the 2019 World Value Wine Challenge Top 10 Red. A very easy satisfying BBQ wine.

Price: $18.99

Jennifer's Pick   (Canada)

Gooderham & Worts Eleven Souls

Tasting Notes: With it being Canada's birth month, I'm choosing a favourite Canadian whisky of mine. If you've been hesitant to try Canadian whiskies, this one is definitely sure to win you over. Gooderham & Worts has an inspiring story on the back of the bottle about William Gooderham adopting 11 children whose parents died during a migrating voyage. This delicious bottle is a tribute to those families and has been finished in 11 different barrels. The abv sits at 49%. It's got beautiful colour and flavour making it a perfect little Canadian to bring to your celebrations. Cheers!

Price: $110.99
