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,

Four Roses 2014 Limited Edition Single Barrel – SOLD OUT

SOLD OUT

New Release at Lukas Liquor Superstore
Four Roses 2014 Limited Edition Single Barrel

Four Roses Limited Edition 2014 Single Barrel KSBW

“If I could age like bourbon, I wouldn’t mind getting old.”

- Frank Wheatley of Louisville, Kentucky

Master Distiller Jim Rutledge selected this year’s Limited Edition Single Barrel from 11-year-old OESF barrels, one of the distillery’s 10 unique and distinct bourbons.
The bourbon is barrel strength—uncut and non-chill filtered—with a proof ranging between 108.3 and 127.6. It offers unique aromas of clove and fruit that mingle delicately with hints of sweet toffee and brown sugar. Flavors of creamy mint, ripe cherries, vanilla and pear present on the palate give way to a long, smooth finish of candied fruit and sweetened oak.
“This year’s Limited Edition Single Barrel is a tribute to the loyal following we are so fortunate to have,” said Rutledge. “This bourbon went into the barrel and was put away at a time when Four Roses had just returned to the states and it’s remarkable to see how far we’ve come as a company since then.”
The Limited Edition Single Barrel bottle pays tribute to Four Roses’ loyal fans by including a toast submitted during the Year of the Toast campaign that celebrated Four Roses 125th anniversary. The campaign encouraged consumers to submit their favorite toasts via email and social media, with one toast selected to appear on this year’s Limited Edition Single Barrel bottle. After reviewing hundreds of submissions, Four Roses executives chose the toast from Frank Wheatley of Louisville, Kentucky.: “If I could age like bourbon, I wouldn’t mind getting old.”
Four Roses’ handcrafts 10 unique and distinct bourbons, mingling them in different ways to create Four Roses Small Batch and Four Roses Yellow Label products. One of these bourbons is hand selected to become Four Roses Single Barrel. Four Roses has produced and distributed approximately 5,000 bottles of the 2014 Limited Edition Single Barrel Bourbon which are now available here at Lukas Liquor Superstore.

New Beer: 4 Hands, New Belgium, Avery, Sierra Nevada

4hnbavsn

4 Hands Prussia
The name Prussia originates from Frederick the Great. Frederick was trained to brew this very delicate style of beer and later became the King of Prussia. Our interpretation of the Berliner Weisse style is very traditional. Prussia pours a hazy straw hue with a nice clean tart finish. Enjoy alone or with flavored syrup.

New Belgium/Three Floyds Gratzer
It’s not dead, but Gratzer is definitely a long-buried style from Poland. And together with 3Floyds we have unearthed the best of beer zombies. Full of bold flavors from oak-smoked wheat, and along with Midnight Wheat, this beer presents a pure black pour. A subtle, spicy note from the Polish Lublin hops hides in the aroma, just below the dark and smoky surface. Despite all appearances, the Gratzer is very drinkable at 4.5% ABV, and walks itself with a nice, light body. Cheers to drinking smoky, undead beers. Prost!

Avery Anniversary Ale 21
Imperial India-Style Brown Ale. TWENTY ONE is built on a foundation of dark specialty malts, framed by sturdy IBUs and crowned with a monumental dry hop addition of two of our favorites, Amarillo and Simcoe.

Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Invitational Double IPA
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is sending a flavorful request instead of a formal one, today shipping to distributors a West Coast Double IPA in 24-ounce bottles that invites beer drinkers to attend Beer Camp Across America. An unprecedented seven-city traveling beer festival, Beer Camp Across America will feature more than 700 total breweries; each brewery will pour their beers at the festival closest to them.

Ginger Beer!

, , , , , , , , , , ,

It seems we’ve been taking a lot of calls lately for Ginger Beer. Not any specific alcoholic versions, (we do have a few of those too) but for the non-alcoholic kind that is used to make up cocktails like the Moscow Mule or Dark ‘n Stormy.

 

At moment we carry 3 different brands of Ginger Beer:

 

-Gosling’s Ginger Beer (from http://www.goslingsrum.com)

“Top with our perfectly balanced ginger beer; the only ginger beer created strictly to make Dark ‘n Stormy cocktails.

We didn’t steer you wrong on the whole shorts thing. Trust us on this one, too. We spent over a year to achieve the ideal balance of sweetness and spiciness and matching it to the flavour profile of our award-winning Black Seal Rum.

Only our Black Seal Rum makes a Dark ‘n Stormy genuine. Only our Ginger Beer makes it perfect.

Also introducing our Gosling’s Diet Stormy Ginger Beer, a refreshing and thirst quenching drink made with the same recipe as Gosling’s Stormy Ginger Beer for a natural ginger beer flavour with the advantage of zero calories.”

We also stock the Gosling’s Diet Ginger Beer as well.

 

 

-Fever Tree Ginger Beer (from http://www.fever-tree.com)

“By brewing a blend of three gingers from Nigeria, Cochin and the Ivory Coast we have created an award winning ginger beer that has been highly acclaimed by gastronomes and critics alike. Perfect in a Dark & Stormy, Moscow Mule or simply as a soft drink on its own.

COLOUR: Cloudy with natural ginger sediment. Should be inverted before opening to allow the sediment to go back into solution.

AROMA: Instant smell of fresh, natural ginger.

FLAVOUR: A distinct, fresh ginger taste predominates. It is refreshing and clean tasting without being overly sweet. As the liquid passes through the palate the ginger will fill the whole mouth, leaving a warmth at the back of the throat.

TEXTURE: A smooth, silky texture created by the champagne bubbles and natural ingredients.”

 

And last but not least, Empire Ginger Beer.
