At Colonial Spirits Delivers we’ve been focusing in on gifts lately. A gift of wine, champagne, liquor, or beer is often the perfect gift for that special occasion, and we have been working diligently to enrich your alcohol gift-giving (and gift-receiving) experience. With this in mind, we recently announced that we now offer Gift Wrap & Gift Bag options at check out, as well as several wine, champagne, liquor, and beer Gift Baskets ready to order!
Today, we’d like to highlight one of our new gift basket offerings… THE COCKTAIL CLASSIC!
At long last a very special and very limited Bourbon has arrived! In May of 2013 Colonial Spirits received samples from several different barrels at the Willett distillery. After tasting each sample with customers there was an obvious outlier in the group… a particularly rich and woody 10yr old bourbon. We ordered the entire barrel to be bottled exclusively for Colonial Spirits. Demand for Willett bourbons left the small distillery struggling to keep up and they discontinued the barrel program, needing everything they could get to keep up with production. We were quite fortunate to be the last store to receive such a special allocation of bourbon. While the folks at Willett worked to keep up with demand our prized barrel got another year of aging.
While supplies last this incredible bourbon will be available for $99.99 – this flavorful offering brings oak, honey and leather together with a balanced, dry, lingering finish. The richness and sweet warmth are akin to the profile of the rarest and most sought after label in the bourbon world…

November is a special month in New England, bringing forth imagery and tradition from the days when our great country was just beginning. It all leads up to a big day of celebrating American tradition with a great feast and gratitude for what we enjoy in life.
I enjoy Bourbon – a distinctive product of the United States (said Congress in 1964) – and would like to encourage anyone interested in whiskey to explore this traditional spirit as you take time to relax and enjoy the Thanksgiving season.
Discussions about pairing wine with food are quite familiar around Colonial Spirits with a trio of serious wine enthusiasts and many more who like to cook on staff. It is also one of our most common questions from customers. As well, it is not uncommon to confer about beer pairings as more people seem to be finding an interest in that tradition. For as much time as I spend chatting with folks about whisk(e)y, talk of aligning it with a meal is rare. Read More about Bourbon – America’s Whiskey

To whom this may concern,
The truth is that Bourbon, like single malt Scotch, is getting harder and harder to come by, becoming more expensive, or a bit of both. This is not the case because production is slowing down, but because demand is growing. I can remember a time, even in the 6 years I have been working here, when we would get a mixed case of Pappy Van Winkle bourbons, a case each of the Rip Van Winkle bourbons, a six-pack of the Eagle Rare 17yr, and etc. (or more commonly known as the Antique Collection). But times have changed and with each passing year our allocation of the Antique Coll. bourbons is getting smaller; last year we received a total of 12 bottles mixed and matched between all the different bourbons. We still haven’t received our allocation yet, but we are crossing our fingers that it is as “good” as last years. Unfortunately this sad tale isn’t about the Antique Coll., but instead about WL Weller 12yr. Read More about A Letter in a Bottle
I don’t like gin. At least that is what I have been telling people for more than 10 years now. As the spirits buyer for a liquor store it is time to address that conflict of interest.
Gin is a spirit most commonly associated with juniper berries, indeed the name itself, ‘Gin’, is derived from the Dutch ‘jenever’, meaning juniper. The drink has been around for centuries if not millennia and likely began as a form of medicine. Today gin is growing out of its image as a dry, one dimensional, 80 proof alcohol made for either martinis or tonic. I must admit that I have always found that mold a bit boring.

Jefferson’s small batch bourbon is part of a line up of exceptional bourbons including a reserve batch at over $60 and a 21yr at well over $100. So, getting a true small batch product for $34.99 is a real value. Jefferson’s doesn’t disappoint, so when we were offered the chance to taste through several single barrels of Jefferson’s in order to choose the one that we would have bottled for Colonial Spirits we were thrilled.
