Aged in fire-charred American white oak and bottled at 92.8 proof, the rye has deep notes of vanilla, toffee, toasted almond and cinnamon with an ample dose of crushed pepper and a hint of orange citrus. Limited production.

Malibu, the top-selling Caribbean Rum with coconut liqueur, is adding Malibu Strawberry Kiwi in 200ml cans to their popular ready-to-drink portfolio.

The launch is being supported with digital media promotions, sampling events and POS including shelf cards, cold box clings and single-serve bins and racks.

Burnett’s Cucumber Lime Vodka

Cucumber Lime brings the portfolio to a total of 37 flavors. 70 proof; available in 50ml, 1.0L and 1.75L.

Mark West ‘Black’ Pinot Noir

Introducing Mark West Black, Constellation is betting the demand for “dark” red blends will translate to Pinot Noir as well. Dubbed “the dark side of Pinot,” the wine is the most full-bodied in the brand’s portfolio. It begins with fruit fromCalifornia’s cool-climate regions that allow for longer hang time and ripeness. Then, early in the winemaking process, some of the wine is “bled off,” boosting the skin-to-juice ratio and thereby flavor concentration.

SRP: $13.99



Angostura ‘No. 1’ Rum

The House of Angostura has introduced their “No.1” Once Used French Oak Rum, the newest introduction to The Cask Collection. No. 1 is a 16-year-old blend; the rums spent a minimum of 10 years in American Oak, then were transferred to ex-Cognac French Oak casks for six more years. The Cognac barrels impart flavors of nuts, dried dates and figs and hints of oak. Available in select markets.

SRP: $95-$100







FOUR 2014 Red Blend, California

Why Four? Why not?  It’s “four” fun. It’s “four” easy entertaining. It’s “four”good times with family and friends. And indeed, FOUR combines four grapes (44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Petite Sirah, and 7% Petit Verdot) into one delicious, richly smooth red wine. Great with grilled foods. The environmentally friendly 3L bag-in-box adds ease and convenience. Marketed by Bronco Wine Co.

SRP: $23.99






PINO Cellars 2015 Rosé of Pinot

Last year was an outstanding vintage inOregonas weather allowed grapes to reach peak ripeness. The grapes for PINO Cellars Rosé of Pinot came from both the Willamette andUmpquaValleys. Using “saignée” to “bleed off” the fresh, lightly colored juice, winemaker Robert Stashak captured both a beautiful pink color and enticing notes of strawberry, cranberry and raspberry. The finish is long and crisp. Marketed by Bronco Wine Co.

SRP: $19.99







Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon

This new limited-release Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon breaks new ground, having been finished in a mix of new and used 100% American oak Kentucky Bourbon barrels. The treatment imparts deep toasty flavors and hints of vanilla and brown sugar into the wine—but without overwhelming the robust cherry and blackberry fruit.

SRP: $13.99






SILGA 2015 Verdejo, Rueda

The crisp, refreshing Verdejo-based wines ofSpain’s Rueda region are gaining recognition in theU.S.just in time to be a featured summer white. The 2015 Silga, from Bodegas Alvarez Diez, has a classic floral and citrus nose leading into more fresh citrus that lingers in a very long, balanced finish. No oak, no problem. And the wine’s screwtop and fanciful label makes clear this Rueda is ready for fun and adventure.

SRP: $11.99






Mü Creamy Coco Cappuccino

Coffee break meets happy hour in the “mü” (pronounced moo) line of coffee-inspired RTD cocktails. The newest flavor, Coco Cappuccino, joins Vanilla Latté, Chocolate Chai and Espresso Macchiato. After launching successfully inFloridaand limited markets,  brand creator LiDestri is rolling out mü to 13 states.

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Rye

The third offering of the Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Collection marks the brand’s first new grain bill in 100 years (70% rye, 18% corn, 12% malted barley). Following the Single Barrel Select and Barrel Proof bottlings, the 94-proof Single Barrel Rye has a robust yet balanced flavor profile, with hints of dried fruit and vanilla. It finishes slightly shorter than the other Single Barrels as rye is much more about grain rather than barrel character.

SRP: $49.99 per 750ml






The Pogues Irish Whiskey

The Pogues, a legendary Irish punk band, teamed up with West Cork Distillers, one ofIreland’s independent distillers, to create an eponymous Irish whiskey. The band was deeply involved in the creation of the whiskey, a blend of 50% 10-year single malt aged in Sherry casks and 50% 5-7 year grain whiskey aged in bourbon casks. The resulting liquid has an aroma of malts and nuts, with a sweet taste and a smooth, intense flavor. 80 proof.

SRP: $39.99
