Germain-Robin XO Brandy 750ml

This bottling from local Mendocino craft distillers Germain-Robin displays astonishing quality in the classic XO tradition. It is very deep and rich, with hints of vanilla and dark chocolate. It spent eleven years in small Limousin barrels, chosen from the brandies which are put aside for long aging. A high proportion of selections from Pinot Noir are included. The finish is astoundingly long and full.

Michel Huard Hors d'Age '99, '92, '90 Calvados 750ml

Huard is an old school producer who Calvados expert Charles Neal looked to to create a special blend from his favorite vintages--1990, 1992 and 1999. This captures the freshness and intensity of a young Calvados, while expressing the depth and complexity of the finest aged apple brandy. A real treat, which clearly outshines its price point.

Laird's Straight Apple Brandy 100 proof 750ml

Don't be fooled by the less expensive blended variety. This is the real deal and is 100% aged apple brandy, none of the neutral stuff. Apple Jack is America's Calvados, although you must only have the straight apple brandy to avoid the blends. This is a necessity for anyone creating an authentic bar. And if you don't have what it takes to make a delicious Jack Rose cocktail, or a Calvados Cocktail, then you don't have an authentic bar. Laird's is the Rittenhouse Rye of apple distillates.

Germain-Robin Coast Road Reserve Brandy 750ml

This is the same brandy as the Shareholder's Reserve, just with a new label and a new name. This is the blend given to Germain-Robin shareholders, composed from younger brandies selected for fragrance and delicacy blended with older brandies distilled from Pinot Noir that give structure, depth and richness on the finish. (The average age is about seven years.) Amazingly smooth. Only 200 cases produced each year.

Osocalis Rare Alambic Brandy 750ml

Osocalis is a small, artisanal distillery in Soquel, California. The name Osocalis is the original Native American name for Soquel, today part of the greater Santa Cruz area. They use a small (100 gallon) antique alambic Charentais still, imported from Cognac, to produce brandies using grapes and apples from the cooler coastal regions of California. They strive to produce products that have the length, elegance and finesse of Old World brandies, such as Cognac and Calvados, but with the fruit intensity and structure of California wines. Osocalis' first p... Read More »

Germain-Robin Craft Method Brandy 750ml

This is the same as the Fine Alambic, just a new name and a new label. The younger (VSOP) brandies from Germain-Robin have wonderful Californian fruit overtones. The basic wines are Colombard and Chenin Blanc, with Gamay Beaujolais and Pinot Noir. Other varietals are used for complexity and balance. Pure and flavorful.

Germain Robin K&L Single Barrel Blend CB2014B Alambic Brandy 750ml

Labeled as Blend CB2014B - Barrel #134, this is our second barrel purchase from California legends Germain Robin in Ukiah. Aged in French Limousin oak, this brandy begins with a lovely flurry of fresh fruit before settling into more classic Cognac flavors of caramel and subtle toffee. The balance of this batch is impeccable and the brandy is decidedly better than the standard Craft Method in our opinion. Germain Robin already makes an amazing and affordable brandy, so we weren't going to take a cask unless it was significantly better or different than ... Read More »

Much like Guillermo Sauza created Fortaleza Tequila and continued on with the family business, Claire de Montesquiou and her husband decided to purchase a small estate named Domaine d’Esperance and follow tradition.

Clear Creek Pear Brandy 375ml

The New York Times called Clear Creek's Pear Brandy "Quite Spectacular," and it is. Made from Bartlett pears grown in Clear Creek's own orchards in Parkdale, Oregon, the fruit is crushed and fermented and then the whole mash is run through German-made pot stills. Pure pear on the nose, the taste is strong but distinctly pear-flavored, finishing clean.

Clear Creek Eau de Vie Pomme 8-year-old Apple Brandy 375ml

96-100 points Wine Enthusiast: "An American distilling masterpiece by distiller Steve McCarthy." (9/2001) K&L Notes: From the McCarthy Family Orchards in the foothills of Mount Hood comes Clear Creek Distillery's Eau de Vie Pomme. This release was made using a traditional European pot still and barrel aged for eight years. What you get is a beautiful amber-hued brandy that smells remarkably of fresh apples, but has the complexity of an oak-aged gem on the palate. Rivals the best Calvados.

La Folie Vieille Marc de Bourgogne 750ml

Marcs is pretty much the French version of Italian grappa - a spirit distilled from the fermented must of leftover grape skins and pommace after pressing. Whereas many Italian grappas are clear and unaged, however, most of the marcs I've tasted from France are aged in wood. Until recently, though, I'd never tasted one this mature. The La Folie Marc de Bourgogne was aged for a minimum of twenty years in refill Cognac barrels and offers all the flavor of grappa, with its earthy and petrol-like minerality, but with a healthy dose of vanilla and richness on ...

Germain-Robin Single Barrel Muscat Brandy 750ml

And then there's the sexy stunner of the group. This 11 year old. 1999 distilled muscat smells like you just opened a bottle of Trimbach Muscat from Alsace. It smells like wine, no joke. That bold, spicy, fruit cocktail muscat flavor goes through all the way-from beginning to end and is beautifully balanced by the oak. It's soft and warming on the backend, but it's not flabby. Like a great muscat wine, it retains the perfect amount of alcohol and wood. Bravo!! I am in for at least one bottle. It's just stunning.

Gonzalez Byass Lepanto Gran Reserva Brandy de Jerez 750ml

González Byass is one of Spain's most well-known sherry bodegas. Its origins can be traced to 1835 when it was founded by Manuel María González Angel. The Gran Reserva brandy, distlled from Palomino and aged for more than 15 years in a solera, soaks up all the rich, decadent sherry flavor, but drinks with a drier, more robust finish. It's perfect for a cigar, and a great deal for those who enjoy Macallan, Glenfarclas, or Glendronach single malts. One of the top deals in brandy.

Germain-Robin Barrel 351 Brandy 750ml (Previously $600)

1987 is considered by Ansley and Hubert to be the best vintage for both the fruit and the distillates in the Germain Robin archive. Everything went right that year; both the weather and the distillation process. 120 bottles were filled from this single cask of 1987 Welch Vineyard pinot noir distillate, made from grapes taken purely from the Potter Valley site. It's as close as a spirit can get to expressing vintage and terroir. The first sip reveals a fatter, more supple mouthfeel than the 30 year. The vinous character of the pinot noir coats the palate ... Read More »

Germain-Robin Single Barrel Pinot Noir Brandy 750ml

This is a younger 13 year old cask from 2001, but it is off the chain delicious. Vinous grappa notes on the nose that are completely airbrushed and blended out on the palate. The acidity of the pinot noir is immediately obvious, especially having tasting the other two single barrels first. This is entirely different than the three other selections. There's weight, and boldness, and more depth. It's not just fruit and oak, but also earthy elements that pop in and out through the finish. Tremendous.

The selling point of the Anno Domini, however, is that the blend contains a bit of brandy distilled from dry-farmed Palomino from the late 80s—perhaps the rarest and most treasured gem in the library.

Whereas a number of the other ancient releases will be limited, one-time-only expressions, the 30 year will be a continual 200 bottle per year allocation.

Germain-Robin Small Blend No 3 Brandy 750ml Top Pick!
Germain-Robin Small Blend No 3 Brandy 750ml

This is the smallest of the three blends and also has its own vintage of 1985 distilled gamay, along with 1996 Roederer pinot noir, two 1997 Colombard distillates, and a blend of 1996 muscat, viognier, and riesling. The wine geek in me just shot my load. This is wildly different than the other two blends, more muted and less spicy with the aromatic varietal brandy really coming through. Muscat distillates have a distinct floral and perfumy character (as we recently tasted with the unaged Singani 63) and that's a big part of the backbone for this blend. I... Read More »

Germain-Robin Small Blend No 2 Brandy 750ml (Previously $300)

I was really looking forward to this one, just based on the specs. 39.8 % 1984 California Gamay Beaujolias (Oh my God!) with 35.2% 1989 Colombard and 25% 1994 pinot noir. A bit higher in proof at 44.5%, that extra lift is apparent on the initial sip. The red-fruited juiciness of the gamay is actually palpable and takes center stage, forcing the other two brandies to supporting roles. The warmth and spice from the Colombard picks up on the mid-palate and the acidity and focus from the pinot noir balances out the backend. It's explosive on the finish thoug... Read More »
