Edna Valley Rosé
California

In its inaugural vintage, Edna Valley Vineyard Rosé offers delectable red fruit aromas of strawberry and raspberry with a hint of spice. This wine delights with a delicate salmon-pink hue that alludes to the juicy red flavors and a soft texture. A crisp acidity and silky smooth mouthfeel culminate in a lingering, mouthwatering finish.

2014 Varietal Content: Tempranillo, Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre

Lioco Indica Rosé of Carignan
Mendicino County, California

AROMA: Bearrs lime, cherry pit, Jolly Rancher

FLAVOR: Wild strawberry, Ruby grapefruit, kiwi

NOTES: Since Rosé is the "hot new thing" in wine, every vintner from Napa to North Fork is now producing one. Here's why Lioco thinks theirs is different. First of all, Indica is an "intentional Rosé" meaning all the fruit goes directly-into-the-press and 100% of the juice rendered into bone-dry Rosé. Many pink wines are engineered by a process that involves bleeding some juice from overweight red grapes. The pleasant hue of Indica verifies a qualitative approach with an "eye of the partridge" color that is closer to orange than pink.

Secondly, this fruit source has legitimate pedigree with dry-farmed, extremely low-yielding vines dating back to the 1950's. Older vines make better wines, almost without exception. Further, the profile of old vine Carignan Rosé just seems to deliver more complexity than your standard issue pink. Aromas of pink
grapefruit, watermelon rind, rosewater, and crushed chalk are in harmony and repeated on the pallet.

Guild Rosé
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Guild is a cooperative of Pportland, Oregon vintners. Guild has a new wine that just came out this March, their 2015 Guild Winemakers Rose Willamette Valley. This dry pink wine is a limited release, and we are very fortunate to have it at Liquor World.

From Willamette Valley, Oregon, GUILD Rose' 2015 is mostly Melon de Bourgogne with just enough Pinot Noir to provide a backbone and color.

More New wines from Lioco Winery
California

Lioco Winery is owned and operated by the Licklider family. Husband/wife duo Matt and Sara Licklider and their small team produce the wines at a state-of-the-art winemaking cooperative in Santa Rosa. All of the fruit is purchased from family-owned vineyards spanning 200-miles and three counties (Santa Cruz, Sonoma, and Mendocino).

Lioco Indica Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Sonoma, California

AROMA: Pomegranate, bay laurel, wet slate

FLAVOR: Cranberry, forest floor, oolong tea

AT A GLANCE: Laguna was named after the single greatest influence on this wine: the nearby Laguna de la Santa Rosa watershed. The Pacific ocean, Russian River, coastal redwoods and fog also contribute intrigue. The resulting wine--full of mouthwatering, sour red fruit--could only come from the Sonoma Coast.

Lioco Indica Sonoma Chardonnay
Sonoma, California

AROMA: Lemon curds, loquat, quartz

FLAVOR: Pomelo, chamomile, bay laurel

AT A GLANCE: The house pour at destination restaurants both at home and abroad. This wine is a bridge between the leaner California Chardonnays of the '70’s and those being made today.

Dogfish Head

Dogfish Head beer is now available in Arkansas.   We now have it at Liquor world!  
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Tasting Room is located in Milton, DE.

Dogfish Head’s story: "Not only was Dogfish Head Delaware’s first brewpub, it was the smallest commercial brewery in America. With our very first batches brewed on a system that was essentially three little kegs with propane burners underneath, we were brewing 12–gallon batches of beer for a whole restaurant. It proved to be more than a full time job and when the doors to the brewpub first opened, we brewed three times a day, five days a week! The benefit? Brewing on such a small system gave us the ability to try out a myriad of different recipes. Insert ‘off-centered ales for off-centered people.’ Our hunger for weird ingredients and venturing off the beaten path was just getting started.

Fast-forward to today and we’re still motivated by non-conformity. By spontaneity. By experimentation. At every turn, our restless desire to create what hasn’t yet been imagined keeps us bringing new stories, new tastes, and new experiences to you.”

J. Rieger & Co. Distillery
Kansas City


Jacob Rieger & Company was founded in 1887 in Kansas City’s West Bottoms Livestock Exchange district. The brand offered over 100 alcoholic products and took pride in maintaining a quarter of a million unique customers by offering mail-order delivery services. In 1919, Prohibition was enacted by the federal government and wasn’t reversed until 1933. J. Rieger & Co. was a casualty at the time, but was not destined to be lost forever. Nearly a century following Prohibition, J. Rieger & Co is proud once again to call Kansas City its home.

Rieger’s Kansas City Whisky

Well-balanced, smooth, and slightly sweet. J. Rieger Kansas City Whiskey is a blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Light Corn Whiskey, and Straight Rye Whiskey, all aged at least 4 years, as well as a small amount of 15 year old Oloroso Sherry from the Williams & Humbert Bodega in Jerez. Bottled at 92 proof, Kansas City Whiskey is well-balanced, smooth, and slightly sweet. It’s beautiful when served neat or on the rocks, but also works well in classic Bourbon – or Rye-based cocktails such as the Horsefeather, Manhattan and Old Fashioned.

Rieger’s Midwestern Dry Gin

A full-flavored GIN with layers of aroma. Midwestern Dry Gin is inspired by the traditional London Dry Gins that famously emphasize the spicy and aromatic character of mature Juniper berries.

Rieger Caffe Amaro

A one of a kind. Bitter, herbal, and slightly sweet. Rieger Caffé Amaro is a one of a kind take on Coffee Liqueurs. Amaro (the Italian word for ‘bitter’) is a category of liqueur characterized by its bitter, herbal, and slightly sweet flavor which stems from the use of botanicals, herbs, and cane syrup. Caffè Amaro is a collaborative spirit with Kansas City-based coffee roasters, Thou Mayest who selects a single origin coffee roast that we utilize to contribute to the flavors the botanicals generate. Rieger Caffé Amaro spends a brief amount of time in a whiskey barrel resulting in a rich, bittersweet flavor that works great in cocktails or can be enjoyed by itself after a meal. ABV 31%, 62 Proof

SPIRIT BASE: Grain Neutral Spirit distilled from Corn

BOTANICALS: Juniper Berries, Cardamom, Orange Peel, Star Anise, Spearmint Leaves, Gentian, Vanilla Beans
