Hooker's House Bourbon (750ml)

SKU #1081714

What happens when you take delicious American bourbon and age it in Carneros Pinot Noir barrels for nine months? Magic apparently. In the age of wine-cask enhanced bourbon, Fred Groth from Hello Cello in Sonoma County has emerged victorious over his peers. The Hooker's House Bourbon, paying homage to General Hooker and his history of whiskey drinkin' in the Bay Area, succeeds where so many other cask-enhanced whiskies fail. It never tastes gimmick-y, but rather adds flavor to a bourbon that already tasted great. The red fruits from the Pinot Noir add delicious cherries and richness to the palate, a flavor that sometimes occurs in bourbon anyway due to commercial yeasts. In this case it tastes entirely natural. The texture is soft and supple. The style is utterly appealing. We all loved it immediately. The price is also right for what you're getting. This should give Black Maple Hill and Breaking & Entering some serious competition. Oh, and for Manhattans, I can only imagine how lovely that cherry flavor is going to blend with sweet vermouth.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
