New Beer: Perennial, Odell, Deschutes

perodelldesch

Perennial The Last Word
The Last Word is a tart ale brewed with key lime, wintergreen, and wormwood, a nod to an illicit Prohibition-era tipple of the same name. Brewed in collaboration with our friends at The Aviary in Chicago.

Odell Jaunt
The Western Slope of Colorado, just a short trip over the Rocky Mountains, is the perfect place to find new ingredients for an excursion in brewing. Jaunt is a process, or journey, marrying a delicate pale ale with Colorado grown Riesling grapes and aged on oak, just for pleasure. The final blend boasts a creamy malt body, a bright and crisp fruity finish, and just a dash of vanilla from the oak.

Deschutes Black Butte XXVI
Our 26th anniversary Imperial Porter was aged in bourbon barrels and dry spiced with Theo Chocolate’s cocoa nibs, revealing hints of vanilla and chocolate. Pomegranate molasses and Oregon cranberries complement the robust flavor with a hint of fruit and just enough tart to make you smile.

Deschutes Doppel Dinkel Bock
After a friendship that spans over two decades, we were finally able to collaborate with Distelhauser on this unconventional imperial spelt beer. Doppel Dinkel Bock deftly balances the malt profile from Germany with the hop qualities of the Pacific Northwest.

Deschutes Foray Belgian IPA
Foray is all about the journey. Belgian yeast delivers hints of apple and pear which blend with the citrus hop aroma for a clean even finish. So no matter where you’re heading, this a trip worth taking.

Blanton’s Single Barrel – Lukas Barrel Committee Release

New Limited Release at Lukas Liquor Superstore

Blanton’s Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Lukas Barrel Committee Edition

 wpid-Blantons-logo.jpg

Our Last Hand-Selected Single Barrel of Blanton’s

This past February, I had the honor of selecting this fine single barrel of Blanton’s for the Lukas Barrel Committee. Little did I know, but this would be the last time that the distillery would be allowing us to order a hand-selected single barrel of this legendary whiskey. Bourbon has become such a hot consumer item and there is a bourbon/whiskey shortage here is the U.S. market right now making allocations of specialty whiskey’s that much tighter. All of the distilleries are increasing their production rates, but you cannot speed up the maturation rates.

This offering of Blanton’s Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey from the Lukas Barrel Committee is an exceptional barrel with loads of rich orange, dry rye and tannic vanilla notes abound. Once this barrel is gone, we will only be carrying the regular single barrel release from Blanton’s. For those of you who have tried our Blanton’s releases over the years, you know how much pride the Lukas Barrel Committee takes in making sure only the “best” barrel is selected. A Lukas customer only deserves the “best”.

Lukas Liquor Superstore is the only place locally you will able to find Blanton’s Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. So stop on by Lukas Liquor Superstore today and grab a few bottles before you miss out on this special release.

Freakshow Cabernet Sauvignon!

New to our shelves is a fantastic value for Cabernet Sauvignon, Freakshow!

From http://www.michaeldavidwinery.com:

“Known for taking the road less traveled, Michael David Winery has always stood apart from the crowd. Whether it be their outlandish brands and packaging or their quirky personalities, Michael and David are definitely on a stage of their own and this wine showcases just that. 

This wine is FREAKing amazing! Over each vintage, the intensity has been kicked up exponentially. This 4th incarnation has more of everything…more depth, more ripe fruit, more pizazz! Nicely balanced with fruit (pomegranate) and oak (showing some smoke). Warning—it’s gulpable!”

Barterhouse 20 Year-Old Kentucky Bourbon

Limited Release

Barterhouse 20 Year Old Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey

Whiskey Needs A Loving Home

“At Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co., we pride ourselves in rescuing lost barrels of rare and delicious whiskey, hidden away and long forgotten in the back of rickhouses.

While we take craft and quality seriously, we had a little fun bringing these extraordinary whiskeys to life with each of our marques. Every Orphan Barrel Bourbon Whiskey is hand bottled in Tullahoma, TN, to ensure that these rare whiskeys are treated with the care they deserve, because once they are gone, they are gone forever.” – per the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co

The Name

“This sly whiskey was discovered in the dark shadows of a rickhouse after spending 20 years in charred American white oak barrels.

A soft and elegant nose, reminiscent of warm spice, biscuit and buttercream is cunningly paid off with the mellow taste or roasted grains and charred oak –finishing with pleasing hints of spice and brown sugar.” – per the bottle

The Whiskey

Aged 20 Years

45.1% ABV (90.2 Proof)

Discovered in the old and closed Stitzel-Weller Distillery’s warehouse’s in Louisville, Kentucky

Extremely rare and one-time only release

For you whiskey aficionados, collectors and connoisseurs, we all know what use to be made at the old Stitzel-Weller Distillery back in the early 1990’s and this is on par to rank up there with those legendary whiskeys. It is extremely hard pressed to find any American Bourbon’s older than say 10 to 15 years these days, let alone a 20 year-old Bourbon. Release’s like these are the sort of thing that have bourbon enthusiasts salivating at the chance to grab a bottle that compliments their collection.

Lukas Liquor Superstore has just received another a generous allocation of the rare Barterhouse 20 Year-Old Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey currently in stock. There is enough to go around right now but it will not last long.

This is a first come, first serve, in store only release with no bottle purchase limit.

No Phone, fax or email reservations will be accepted.

Cheers,

Barrel-Aged Cocktails – COMING SOON

Coming Soon to Lukas Liquor Superstore

The Big “O” Ginger Liqueur & Four Roses Yellow Label

Barrel-Aged Old Fashioned

 Barrel Aged Old Fashioned

After curing our newly acquired 5L, custom made mini barrel, we finally decided to fill it today with a classic signature cocktail created by the founder of St. Louis’ own, The Big “O” Ginger Liqueur, Bill Foster.

This barrel-aged Old Fashioned consists of equal parts Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon and The Big “O” ginger liqueur. We then decided to add some Fee Brothers Cherry Bitters and the seasonally released Fee Brothers Gin Barrel-Aged Orange Bitters to give this cocktail an added twist.

After having mixed the cocktail together in the mini barrel, we had the staff try it and the response was overwhelmingly positive. In two weeks, after the needed maturation time, we will debut this cocktail on Friday August 8, 2014 for all to sample and enjoy until the barrel runs dry.

If you are interested in barrel aging your very own cocktails at home, Lukas has 3L oak mini barrels for sale here at the store. Some of us on the staff here at Lukas have been experimenting with barrel-aging our own cocktails at home for quite a while now and want to share this fun experience with you.

Any/all questions you may have about barrel-aging cocktails at home or how to store, clean your barrels can be directed to me at any time.

Cheers,
