April, 2017 Newsletter

Dear friend of fine spirits,

Hey- it’s the Annual sale. We schedule it when people are feeling the bite of the tax man. Take 15% off any bottle, 20% off any purchase of 12 bottles or more, through May 10. Here’s some suggestions:

The G-R Single-barrel Riesling. It took us long years in oak to discover how great aromatic grape brandies can be. We did an old Viognier, an old Muscat (both sold out), a 28-year-old Chenin, and most recently this 18-year old beauty. Amazing how fresh the intense fruit keeps going.

We got the second shipment of San Andres Mezcal Ensamble with a nice admix of wild bicuishe : it approaches a Mezcalero in quality. With the discount, a true bargain. High-altitude intensity of flavor, nice minerality from the shaley soil.

Crispin Cain’s Low Gap Bourbon won double gold at the Fifty Best competition, and his Rye was a finalist (scored 94) for the gold at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge. These are very good whiskies .

Buy these while they are on sale: Russell Henry Dark gin, G-R Small Blend no. 2, The Exceptional Blend, Fluid Dynamics Rye Manhattan, and Infusion Works Seville Orange (“what Grand Marnier wishes it tasted like”).

Finally, if you would like to indulge yourself with an individual 9-liter cask (taste a brandy or whiskey as it ages) we’ll extend the discount to the cask itself, $50 off.

Caddell & Williams just opened a wonderful retail store incorporating the Museum of Encountered Objects (worth the visit) in downtown Ukiah, next to the new & improved G-R tasting room. The standard tasting includes a sample of the G-R 30-year-old.

I just shot ten more short video segments talking about our individual products. They show up as links next to each product listing on the Caddell & Williams site. In the Journal part of the Craft Distillers website is a ton of hard-to-find production info/many good wished/ansley coale
