The Ultimate Spirits Gift List: Holidays 2022

The holiday season is a time to celebrate the year with friends and family… here are some of the best wines and spirits to make this time of year even better.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch Whisky

Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch

**Bonus! Add an engraved special message on your bottle as in the image above, with our 'Custom Engraving' option!

A classic from the Legendary Johnnie Walker this Blended Scotch is always a fan favorite. With a nose full of smokiness, raisin, cinnamon, and toffee there is no doubt this is perfect for a winters day. Best enjoyed with company, created from the rarest and most expensive whiskies in the world, individually numbered and produced in limited quantities. Johnnie Walker Blue has the authentic character and flavor of a traditional 19th century blend with traces of smoke, honey and spice on the silky finish.

High West Midwinter Night's Dram

High West A Midwinter Nights Dram Whiskey

The bottle alludes to a play on Shakespeares “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. This rye is finished in port barrels and offers the best of the holiday flavors, with plum, dried fruit, and spice. Like a proper holiday plum pudding, it’s brimming with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits, and crème anglaise. This is an easy candidate to showcase to friends and family or knock the socks off that one “whiskey connoisseur”. Sip it by the fire or make an heart warming Hot Toddy. This rye is a master of all and a must buy for the holidays.

Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne

Veuve Clicquot Champagne Brut Yellow Label

The holiday spirit is all about bubbles. Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label is the industry bar setter for good champagne. The bubbles are small but consistent and fresh. This bottle is a household staple for its structure and finesse. This consistent power to please makes it ideal as an apéritif, and perfect as the champagne to enjoy with a meal. Make sure to pick up a bottle … or two.

Clase Azul Reposado Tequila

Clase Azul Reposado Tequila

Tequila has become one of Americas top spirits, and with good reason. Clase Azul Mexico offers one of the best Reposado Tequilas on the market. This beautiful expression of flavors comes from cooked 100% Blue Weber Agave. The blanco tequila is then taken and aged in American Bourbon barrels for 8 months. This resting period creates a delicate taste of sweet vanilla and just a touch of oak that is extracted from the resting period. Clase Azul Reposado is the perfect sipper for this holiday season. The bottle is beautiful enough to be the center of attention but the tequila inside makes it truly special.

Armand De Brignac Ace of Spades Champagne

Armand de Brignac Ace Of Spades Gold Champagne Brut

For a truly luxurious experience this holiday season pick up a bottle of Ace of Spades Gold Brut Champagne. This prestige Champagne comes from land that has been farmed by the same family since 1763. The beautiful gold bottle finished with polished French pewter and a glossy black box makes the experience of opening this bottle a treat on its own. The champagne brings peach, apricot and red berry aromas that are then followed by crystalized citrus, orange blossom and hints of brioche. The palate is rich with cherries, exotic fruits and a touch of lemon, vanilla and honey. The mouth feel is soft and creamy, with a hint of toastiness, from the unique Armand de Brignac dosage which is aged for one year in French oak barrels. This is a personal favorite for that special time of year.

Buffalo Trace Bourbon Cream

Buffalo Trace Bourbon Cream

This is an all-time holiday season liqueur for any type of celebration or even a well deserved treat after dinner. Bourbon Cream is handcrafted using Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon, making it a perfect marriage of rich delicious cream and smooth Kentucky bourbon. You can enjoy it chilled, on the rocks, or pour it in a cup of coffee for an indulgent after dinner treat. The sweet heat from the Kentucky Straight Bourbon and the luscious cream create something that will have you rethinking ever picking up that plain eggnog ever again. This has always been a must bring to any holiday event and it is always done well before the evening is finished. Make sure to try out the Buffalo Float– the adult root beer float.

The only question you'll have after gifting one of these is: "I wish I would've bought myself one!"
