For the tequila fan:
Avión Reserva 44 This sipping tequila is made with single origin blue agave grown at some of the highest elevations in Mexico for seven to 10 years and then aged for three and a half years. The result is a taste of luscious fruits and American oak paired with an aroma of warm vanilla and spices.
Flecha Azul Tequila Añejo This añejo tequila is aged for 18 months—six months longer than the industry standard. It delivers a very subtle taste of agave and notes from American white oak ex-bourbon barrels.
Mico Tequila Party Pack This party pack features three bottles: a 100% Blue Weber Agave blanco, a reposado and an añejo. Aged in American oak barrels, these tequilas are born in Jalisco and raised in Los Angeles. Mico’s founders work directly with agave farmers and distillers for a hands-on, beautiful spirit.
For the rumrunner:
Don Q Gran Reserva XO This expression is a blend of rums aged between nine and 12 years in American white oak barrels, with the addition of Solera rums aged up to 55 years, creating a unique balance and signature flavor.
Rhum Barbancourt Estate Reserve Made with 100% sugar cane juice, this rum goes through three different types of oak barrels over its 15 years of aging, during which time it is not blended. This specific process develops soft scents of caramelized brown sugar and a body that allows its flavors to spread slowly and elegantly over the palate.
Zacapa XO with St. Johns Bay Rum Candle This Guatemalan spirit contains a blend of rums from six to 25 years old. A perfectly balanced combination of sweetness, spice, fruit and spirit results in the ultimate expression of the Master Blender’s art. XO’s maturation process is based on a centuries-old Spanish way of aging sherries, blending rums of different ages in a sequence of barrels that previously held American whiskies, sweet sherries, fine Pedro Ximénez wines and French cognac. St. Johns candles are known for their crisp and fresh aromas.
For the whiskey advocate:
Benriach Thirty This single malt Scotch whisky is the ultimate example of layered flavor at its most luxurious. Crafted using 100% peated spirit, The Thirty is an extraordinarily rare single malt and one of the only peated Speyside malts ever available at this age.
Glendronach Parliament Aged 21 Years This whisky honors the parliament of rooks that continue to guard the historic distillery’s warehouses. Matured in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso casks from Spain, the expression is a full-bodied, richly sherried Highland single malt Scotch whisky.
Laphroaig 10 Year Old with Markham by Waterford Stacking Decanter & Tumbler Set The brand’s signature expression is complimented by Markham barware, which offers classic design on sleek shapes. Featuring a classic wedge cut and packaged in a signature Marquis by Waterford box, the new stacking decanter set includes a small-sized decanter that stacks with a set of two tumblers. Bottle is eligible for free custom engraving.
Middleton Very Rare Available for the first time in the United States, this Irish whiskey is also the first release under Middleton’s new Master Distiller, Kevin O’Gorman, and the 38th edition of the globally renowned range. It is a balanced blend of rare and hand-selected single pot still and single grain Irish whiskeys. It includes whiskey aged between 15 and 36 years and matured in lightly charred ex-bourbon American oak barrels.
Woodford Reserve Baccarat Edition Also available for the first time in the United States in very limited quantities, this bottle features bourbon further aged in hand-selected XO cognac casks at Kentucky’s Woodford Reserve Distillery, which partnered with Baccarat to create a bottle that highlights their respective legacies. The bottle design is meant to evoke the classic Woodford Reserve bottle silhouette and is engraved with both brands’ logos. It arrives in a signature Baccarat red box with a crystal stopper adorned with Woodford Reserve’s initials.
For the wine connoisseur:

Each box includes one bottle of Krug Grande Cuvee 169ème Edition, two champagne glasses, one box of snacks curated with Blackberry Farm, and an exclusive link to the Krug Encounters music pairing experience.
Meiomi Pinot Noir As the Official Wine of the PGA Tour, this is the perfect bottle for any golf- or wine-loving groom. Enjoy a bottle while playing a pre-wedding round or pair with seasonal dishes like grilled meats and pizza after a day on the course. In addition to this red, Meiomi also offers a Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Rosé.
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013 The newest vintage from Moët & Chandon, launched earlier this year, can be gifted to commemorate the happy day by saving the bottle for an anniversary down the line or toast to married life once the wedding dust settles. Grand Vintage 2013 Blanc and Rosé are the most prestigious offerings in the portfolio, making for the perfect celebratory gift.
2019 Sandeman Quinta do Seixo Vintage Porto Luís Sottomayor, head winemaker of Sogrape’s Douro and Port wines, says the fortified wine produced reveals a straightforward character with high-quality fruit and a very clean, aromatic expression. It delivers a classic character and excellent quality, which is expected from a historic Port producer.
Sonoma-Cutrer 40th Anniversary Chardonnay Winemaker’s Release Sonoma-Cutrer’s female-led winemaking team produces sustainable, certified wines in the Russian River Valley region of Sonoma County, California. This year’s Winemaker’s Release, the 40th Anniversary Chardonnay, represents a historic collaboration between winemakers past and present. It pays tribute to the winery’s mastery of the single grape varietal. The wine strikes an exceptional balance between full-bodied and delicate, with a creamy mouthfeel highlighting the winery’s signature citrus acidity.
For the cognac connoisseur:
Grand Marnier Cuvée Louis-Alexandre Did you know that Grand Marnier does more than a signature expression? He might not know either! A step up from the Cordon Rouge, Cuvée Louis-Alexandre is a unique blend of V.S.O.P. cognac and orange liqueur. The cognacs used come from the finest growing areas in the Cognac region of France.
Monfleurie Cognac Maison Boinaud, a historic Cognac House, created this cognac from a 1960 grape harvest. Over the past six decades, this eaux-de-vie (the basis for all cognac) developed as it rested. It was then blended with hundreds of other aged eaux-de-vie that were hand-picked from the Maison Boinaud cellar. The crystal carafe was created by famed Cristallerie Saint-Louis, one of the oldest and most renowned crystal houses in Europe. Each carafe is meticulously handblown, individually numbered and uniquely engraved. There are only a thousand bottles of Monfleurie’s Launch Edition, which is dedicated to the orchid (l’orchidée in French), the iconic flower symbolizing beauty, endurance and love.
