Bubbles that make you feel good

Rarely does anything express “let’s celebrate” quite like an exquisite bottle of bubbly! Whether you are eying rare Champagne or the everyday sparkling wine, we assist in ringing in the New Year, toasting a new marriage, honoring an anniversary, or celebrating life’s events and special moments! We do bubbles and we do them right! There are plenty of options and just as many price points in the Champagne and sparkling wine world. Let us get you started with some solid sparkling selections running the array from the under $9 category to the over $100 price point.

The Island Experience

When you speak of Rum, you speak of savory flavor from which the spirit originates. From Barbados, Jamaica, Cuba, Latin America, Guyana to RHUM AGRICOLE, we believe that you have to search to find the best rums in the world. Every island has its own flair, every country has its own style, and every distillery has its own flavor. Rum started life as a by-product of sugar. It’s hardly surprising that a spirit made from sugar cane is sweet, but rum is more than just a sugary drink. Its aromas suggest tropical fruits and banana, there’s spice and vanilla from the oak and, in pot still and extra-aged examples, a rich, dark sultry power that will rock your event!

We can teach you the basics, or jump to the always fun flipping and juggling flare bartending tricks.
