Espolon Blanco Tequila – $27.99
Espolon is 100% Blue Agave based Tequila from the Los Altos region of San Jalisco. Tequilas from the Highlands (Los Altos) tend to have sweeter aromas and more floral components compared to more herbaceous qualities found in Tequilas from the lowlands. The Espolon’s smooth texture and round finish make this a Tequila that’s sippable on the rocks, or mixed into your favorite Tequila-based cocktail.
St. Germain Liqueur – $37.99
St. Germain is a truly special liqueur infused and distilled with wild-foraged elderberry flowers. Each Spring, the wild blossoms are foraged fresh from the Alps, often delivered on bicycle by individuals harvesting on their own. The fresh flowers are then gently pressed, extracting the light floral and tropical qualities without any of the bitterness associated with using frozen or freeze-dried flowers. St. Germain has enticing floral aromas and a lightly sweet quality that can be used in a variety of cocktails, from the classic combination of sparkling wine, St. Germain, and club soda to H. Joseph’s summery What-a-Melon No. 3!
