Small Bar Times
For those of you who don't know, or know and don't care, we actually and surprisingly are a decent couple of bottle shops.
We carry lots of different wine and strange spirits. The 1.5L tequila Gun Riffle Bottle at Nth Strafield springs to mind. Or the German liquor with pictures of Devils on it and an accompanying box of matches, so you can set it on fire.
However, we have received some new sprits that not only I'm happy about, but probably no one will care about.
And probably no one will ever purchase any of them because we are not one of Sydney's small bars.
Why? You ask.
The simple uncomplicated answer is, at some intimate point in a cool inner city small bar.
People are trying very very properly hard to impress their friends, work colleagues, opposite sex. Or all of the above.
Defiantly opposite sex. Done it myself, a million times.
Men? Totally more guilty than women. 1000% more.
New delectable and expensive products include :
-Old Rip Van Winkle 10yo Bourbon
-Old Rip Van Winkle 13yo Rye Whisky.
(other Van Winkle's are available for me to order, we only carry the two "cheapest" options. Note, they are proper expensive).
-Rittenhouse Straight Rye Whiskey.
-2002 Habitation St Etienne Rhum Agricole XO (Vintage Agricole Rum)
(Smokehead Finish: Ardberg-Ian Mac Leod Distillers).
-Habitation St Etienne Vieux Rhum Agricole V.O (Old Dark Agricole Rum) 4years Bourbon Finish.
-Barbancourt 5 stars Old Rum (Agricole Style from Haiti) 8 years.
-Bielle Vieux Rhum Agricole (Old Dark Agricole Rum) 42%.
-Goslings Black Seal Rum.
-Goslings Family Reserve Old Rum.
-Fee Brothers Old Fashioned Bitters.
-Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters.
