Once again, Gilbert's Wine & Spirits has been voted BEST LIQUOR STORE in Dedham by the Readers Choice Awards and Wicked Local Favorites.The management and employees of Gilbert's   would like to thank the people of Dedham and surrounding towns for their support throughout the years.

New Beers

21st Amendment Brew Free or Die
BREW FREE! OR DIE IPA is brewed with some serious west coast attitude. This

aromatic golden IPA starts with three different hops to the nose, quickly balanced
by a solid malt backbone supporting the firm bitterness. Their top selling beer at
the pub, this IPA starts big and finishes clean leaving you wanting more.

Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout 22oz
Aged for three months in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a

deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head. The woody, vanilla-like notes
imparted by the barrels mingle with aromas of fresh baked bread, toffee, and
espresso and envelop the rich chocolate and roasted barley flavors with a fine
bourbon character.

Anderson Valley Summer Solstice
This Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale is a slightly sweet, malty session beer with a

creamy mouth feel and clean finish. With hints of caramel in the nose and a touch
of spice, it’s become affectionately known as “cream soda for adults”. The unique
flavors and superior drinkability make for the ultimate refreshment on a hot
summer day.

Ballast Point Sculpin
Deep gold with clear, subtle carbonation. This IPA showcases bright flavors and

aromas of apricot, peach, mango & lemon. Piney citrus hops presence in the nose
and a rich malt backbone. The flavors mix and mingle on the tongue in a way that
you can't wait for the next sip to see how it would taste. Excellent American IPA.

Spiked Seltzer Variety 12 pack
SpikedSeltzer is made exclusively from purified water and natural ingredients. The fresh fruit flavors infused in SpikedSeltzer are derived from cold-pressed citrus essence from a variety of fruits. Fermentation of this citrus essence and sugar naturally produces 6% alcohol. The result is clean and clear without the sugary sweetness of wine or the heaviness of beer. 

Ballast Point Sculpin Grapefruit
This Grapefruit Sculpin is the latest take on the signature IPA. Some may say there

are few ways to improve Sculpin’s unique flavor, but the tart freshness of grapefruit
perfectly complements the IPA’s citrusy hop character. Grapefruit’s a winter fruit,
but this easy-drinking ale tastes like summer.

Baxter Stowaway IPA
Bold, complex flavors with a solid malt backbone and assertive hop profile, along

with cold conditioning, give this beer its crisp, clean, hoppy finish. Deep amber-
to-orangish in color, Stowaway pours with a nice, creamy head; a huge hop aroma
of citrus, pine and grapefruit notes; and a big, complex, and intense hop flavor
from the 5 different hop varieties and double-dry-hopping procedure used in
making this beer. The malt flavor up-front turns dry and crisp; Stowaway is full-
bodied but with a dry finish and pleasant, long-lasting, hop aftertaste. This I.P.A.
definitely leaves you wanting more.

Bud Light Lime-A-Rita Fiesta Variety 18 Pack

alc./vol. Try mixing the flavors!

Coronado Orange Avenue with Beer

of honey and spices with coriander and chammomile. Flavor semi sweet spicy

dry semi sweet with a light to medium bodied spices really coat the palate,
drinkable for sure especially in warmer weather.

Coronado Idiot IPA 22oz
Idiot IPA is an all-natural India pale ale, brewed with over three pounds of hops

per barrel. This unfiltered “San Diego IPA” has been “known to reduce even the
most intelligent to a blithering idiot.”

Coronado Coffee Stout 22 oz
Just as the iconic Coronado Bay Bridge connects their island home to the mainland,

this java-tinged dry stout, brewed using dark roasted coffee beans from a local San
Diego artisanal roaster, provides a bridge uniting craft beer drinkers with CBC’s
rich, flavorful SoCal brewing traditions.

Dogfish Head Midas Touch
This sweet yet dry beer is made with ingredients found in 2,700-year-old drinking

vessels from the tomb of King Midas. Somewhere between wine and mead, Midas
will please the chardonnay and beer drinker alike.

Dogfish Head Namaste
A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-

cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst

Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron
An unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented brown ale aged in handmade wooden

brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this beer comes
from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted.
Palo Santo means "holy tree," and its wood has been used in South American
wine-making communities.

Dubhe IPA
Toasted, chocolaty dark malts align with an astronomical amount of hops.

Foolproof Brewing Barstool Ale
Not too malty, not too hoppy, Barstool is designed for a night out with your

friends. This flagship beer is handcrafted with the freshest ingredients, including
two-row barley and specialty malts. A blend of English and Czech hops top off this
delicious golden ale, which can be enjoyed for hours on end.

Great Divide Rumble
RUMBLE IPA is an American IPA with subtle nuance. Brewed with heavy handed

additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and
American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness,
vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus. Very inspiring.

Illusive Traveller Grapefruit
Illusive Traveler is a deceptively delicious wheat beer made with real grapefruit.

This refreshing take on a Shandy delivers a bright and satisfying citrus aroma and
flavor, then quickly disappears, leaving you searching for another.

Jack's Abby Mass Rising
They are writing their own story by fueling the fire surrounding extra hoppy beers.

They infuse Mass Rising with increasing amounts of American hops during the
kettle, hopbock and dry hopping processes. Together, they have taken a journey to
redefine the term 'lager.'

quality, 2-row malt and 100% real hops.  No adjuncts.  Honest ingredients,

Not Your Father's Root Beer
The award-winning “Not Your Father’s Root Beer” achieved a 95 rating from Beer

Advocate and is a very popular choice at several Chicagoland bars. Small Town’s
personally delivered “Not Your Father’s Root Beer” kegs consistently sell out at
taverns across the Chicago area.

Ommegang Game of Thrones 750ml
Push through the thick brambles and present yourself to the Three-Eyed Raven.

Abiding in the shadows of the Three-Eyed Raven lies this deceptive Dark Saison.
The ominous Three-Eyed Raven inspired us to brew a Dark Saison ale, a hybrid
style open to brewer’s imagination. In the end it is neither a pure saison nor your
typical dark beer, but instead a delectable blend that both deceives and thrills the

Palm Breeze Mandarin Sparkling Spritzer
One of the "Seven Wonders of Barbados," the pineapple has been used as a symbol

of hospitality and celebration for centuries

Palm Breeze Ruby Red Citrus Sparkling Spritzer
Grapefruit, or Citrus paradisi, was originally called "The Forbidden Fruit" when

discovered in the Caribbean (eat your heart out, Adam and Eve). But now you can
enjoy its sinfully refreshing taste all day long and into the night.

Stone Ruination
It's back! Stone Ruination IPA was the first full-time brewed and bottled West Coast

double IPA on the planet. As craft beer has evolved over the years, so too have
techniques for maximizing hop flavors and aromas. For the second incarnation of
this groundbreaking India pale ale, they've employed dry hopping and hop
bursting to squeeze every last drop of piney, citrusy, tropical essence from the
hops that give this beer its incredible character.

Stone Saison
Lemon zest, grains of paradise, lemon thyme and lavender harvested in Southern

California fields, including their own at Stone Farms, provide citrus and floral
character along with a subtle, tantalizing spice. Thanks to the infusion of fresh West
Coast ingredients, this isn’t your everyday saison.

Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter
Sierra Nevada Hop Hunter IPA will feature hop oil from distilled hops. The idea,

which Sierra Nevada hasn't fully revealed, will extract pure hop oil from mature
cones, to create an IPA that smells unlike any other IPA you've had. Aroma is key.

Tank 7 Ale
Most breweries have at least one piece of equipment that’s just a bit persnickity. At

Boulevard they have fermenter number seven, the black sheep of their cellar
family. Ironically, when their brewers were experimenting with variations on a
traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came
together in that very vessel. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so
it is. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the
flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.

Uinta Detour Double IPA
Detour blazes the trail for fresh and bold Double IPAs. Four varieties of hops

combine to step up the flavor profile. A hoppy adventure that finishes dry. Big in
alcohol and character.

New Wines:

A to Z Rose
The 2014 A to Z Oregon Rosé leads with aromas of strawberries, tangerine,

watermelon and grenadine with hints of thyme and hibiscus then opens to reveal
plum, apricot and more strawberry notes. Clean, balanced and approachable with
generous fruit, the crisp and juicy A to Z Rosé integrates excellent texture with firm
acidity finishing long and pretty.

Arsonist Chardonnay
With incredible aromas of pineapple and papaya mingling with French oak and

butterscotch, this wine just beckons to be tasted. Flavors of tropical fruit and
caramel tantalize with notes of vanilla and barrel spice. The Arsonist Chardonnay is
big, creamy, yet welcoming in its nuanced integration.

Better Half Sauvignon Blanc
Aromas of lime, melon, and guava mingle with herbal notes. Punchy citrus &

guava flavors roll out to a long lingering finish. This wine shows great persistence
of flavor.

Beach House Pinot Grigio
Bright pale gold with deliciously inviting fleshy peach gusto, fresh citrus zeal and

succulent pineapple appeal and a riveting fresh finish.

Beach House Red Blend
A cheerful glassful of sunny tropical and citrus fruit invigorated by a tangerine

twang and lively acidity with a fresh lemon and lime surge on the dry frisky finish.

Cockatoo Ridge Chardonnay
Ripe fruit aromas of peach and melon. Round and flavoursome on the palate with a

touch of oak and appealing freshness on the finish. A label that offers great value
time and time again.

Cockatoo Ridge Shiraz
Cockatoo Ridge continues to be one of Australia's favourite wine names due to the

consistent and extraordinary value offered by wines like their Shiraz. With powerful
aromas of cherry, plum and spicy black pepper along with a palate of abundant
aniseed, mocha and spicy black pepper before finishing with subtle tannins and
superbly integrated cinnamon oak flavours

Cockatoo Ridge Pinot Grigio
Cockatoo Ridge wines are created to reflect the 'real taste of Australia'. The Pinot

Grigio is a bright, easy going white wine full of crisp fruit notes and soft tannins
perfect for any occasion.

Corvo Nero D'Avola
The wine is lively ruby-red in color with garnet nuances; the aroma is intense,

complex, fruity with scents of morello cherry; it is dry and full to the palate, full-
bodied and persistent.

Corvo Insolia
Made from a blend of native grapes Insolia and Grecanico, this is a light-bodied but

refreshing wine that recalls lemon zest, peach and green apple. Fresh acidity gives
it a clean, bright finish.

Chateau St. Jean Bijou Chardonnay
Crisp and elegant, driven by a core of forward fruit flavors with subtle nuances of

French oak. The wine goes through malolactic fermentation giving it a rich texture
balanced by bright acidity. The lightly oaked profile of the Bijou Chardonnay makes
it very food friendly pairing well with a wide range of dishes.

Duck Commander Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay offers rich tropical fruit aromas with hints of lemon and crisp

apple laced around the complex nose. The palate is vibrant and full of pear, melon
and apple pie with a silky, creamy finish.

Franciscan Merlot
Napa Valley, CA- Incredibly rich aromas, with intense blackberry and black cherry,

accented by vanilla-toasted oak with hints of cassis. Supple and ripe blackberry
flavors, black cherry and hints of toasted oak and vanilla fill the mouth with a full
mid-palate and a long, round finish.

Flip Flop Chardonnay
California- Expressive, well-balanced wine that is a perfect fit with today's causal

lifestyle - comfortable and unpretentious in every way. Medium-bodied with
pineapple, soft vanilla and a long lingering finish. Full of creamy, toasted oak

barrel fermentation.

Josh Sauvignon Blanc

tropical fruit, with hints of dried herbs and a crisp, juicy finish.

Kato Sauvignon Blanc
This wine is from New Zealand, Marlborough region. Light straw hue, with a

aromatic and zesty, with a long finish.

made from grapes indigenous to Spain, with natural extracts of orange peels, and
Mediterranean cherries and grapes.

Laurent Miguel Syrah Grenache

easy-pleasing and accessible wine. Fine tannins and medium acidity create an
approachable structure, while hints of crushed violet and chocolate add richness to
the finish.

Meadowsweet Rose with Grapefruit
Meadowsweet is a delicious blend of rose wine and grapefruit.  An appealing, pure

pink wine with a shimmer of darker pink.  The tangy aroma of fresh grapefruit
melds irresistibly with the smooth flavor of rose wine to deliver a vibrant,
refreshing treat.

Menage a Trois Midnight Blend
For this special wine, Ménage à Trois wanted to create a truly uninhibited blend—

something deeper, darker, and bolder than ever before. In true Ménage à Trois
style, they decided that ‘more is more,’ and crafted a blend of not three—but four
—grapes! Merlot adds a plush, velvety texture, Cabernet Sauvignon offers elegance
and power, Petite Sirah lends inky intensity and Petit Verdot imparts a deep violet
color and concentrated fruit. To round out the flavors the wine is aged on French
and American oak. The result is a wine that leaves an indelible impression. It’s
mysterious and dark, soft and sensual—just like Midnight.

New Liquors

Bartender's Horchata Liqueur
Attractive aromas and flavors of spicy bread and rice puddings with satiny sweet medium to full body and a creamy vanilla frosted cinnamon raisin cake finish. Absolutely delicious! Pairs well with chocolate desserts, cakes, and Mexican food.

Bartender's Awesome Orange Cream
An old-time bartender moved to the central part of Florida where he was impressed by the orange groves in the area. Inspired by this view, he whipped up a wonderful blend of real dairy cream, vodka, and all natural orange. He served this cocktail to his friends in his bar and they said it was “awesome”. There was born “Awesome Orange Cream”.

Bartender's Pina Colanda
Years ago, a heroic New York City fireman retired to Old San Juan after many years “on the job”. His passion became inventing tropical drinks at a local hotel bar. He soon created the perfect blend of coconut, pineapple, dark Caribbean rum, and a touch of fresh dairy cream. Thus, he continued his previous career of putting out fires. But now, he only “saved” sunburned vacationers from being thirsty.

Bartender's Strawberry Daiquiri
On a beautiful beach on the coast of Cuba, a young bartender created a refreshing cocktail made of finest island rum, fresh lime juice, and a dash of sugar which became wildly popular as the “Daiquiri”. One day, a beautiful lady suggested he add some of her fresh strawberries to enhance his wonderful cocktail. The results were magical. The “Strawberry Daiquiri” became wildly popular. And, they lived happily ever after.

Grand Ten Distilling South Boston Irish Whiskey
South Boston Irish Whiskey is our homage to the strong Irish-American heritage of South Boston. South Boston Irish Whiskey has a pleasant nose of banana and hazelnut, which transitions smoothly into a malt sweetness with notes of honey, citrus peel, and cinnamon, finishing low and slow with smooth oak. The traditional Irish method favors malted barley in the mash bill and copper in the pot still, lending this whiskey a soft, creamy body, perfect for a long night of slow sips.

Grand Ten Distilling Craneberry
Cape Cod meets Sonoma Valley with this ode to the Massachusetts cranberry. We start with a bold, overproof white rum, which is infused in our still with heaps of Cape Cod cranberries and finished in Cabernet Sauvignon casks. The rich, molasses-based rum serves as a solid foundation for the play between the tartness of cranberries and the dry, tannin-like finish of oaked wine. Craneberry adds an elegant layer to champagne, cocktails, or may be enjoyed neat after a hearty meal.

Grand Ten Distilling Wire Works Gin
Wire Works Special Reserve is a unique product that bridges the gap between the citrus brightness of our signature gin and the soft, sweet notes of whiskey. We begin with a special mixture of the botanicals used to create our American Gin. The resulting spirit is then aged in used American bourbon barrels and blended to produce a gin that possesses the distinctly soft textures and caramel-vanilla flavors of bourbon.

Grand Ten Distilling Rare Bird Rum
We begin with pure blackstrap molasses, add a blend of wild New England yeast, and send it through our all-copper, small-batch still. The resulting spirit is matured in charred American white oak barrels, lending the rum a mild bourbon-like character.

Mr Boston Ginger Brandy
Wonderful ginger brandy just in time for the fall season.

St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
If you're a fan of cocktails, you've definitely come across some mixed with Saint Germain liqueur. And if you tried these mixed drinks, you're aware of this liqueur's bright and fragrant flavor. The liqueur is made from elderflower, a small, white starry flower that blooms through the spring and summer. In Europe, the flower is used in many foods and drinks, but in the U.S. it's gaining popularity in the form of this liqueur.

Summer New Arrivals


Once again, Gilbert's Wine & Spirits has been voted BEST LIQUOR STORE in Dedham by the Readers Choice Awards and Wicked Local Favorites.The management and employees of Gilbert's   would like to thank the people of Dedham and surrounding towns for their support throughout the years.


Abbaye d'Aulne Triple Blonde (750 ml)

Slightly hazy orange color with a one finger head with medium retention and leaving some laces. Aroma of Belgian yeast, oranges, mint, candied sugar and bread. Spicy flavor with notes of mint, herbal hops, oranges, hay, green apples, pears and finishing with dry white wine. Dry, bitter and spicy aftertaste.

Medium body with effervescent carbonation. Alcohol of 8% abv is harmonic with the overall beer.

Abbaye d'Aulne Triple Brune (750 ml)

Nice mahogany ruby color. Poured a thick head with good retention. Predominant aroma of red wines and dry fruits. Flavor of grapes, prunes, fig and caramel. Hints of condiments and liquorice. Also has some floral and earthy hops. Alcohol is very present but cosy. Aftertaste is mildly dry and fruity. Full body with low carbonation with an effervescent sensation.

Goose Island IPA

Recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lover’s dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one you’ll remember.

Sierra Nevada 4-Way IPA Variety 12 pack

This pack of four hop-forward beers stretches the boundaries of India Pale Ale from midnight black color to hazy body and from experimental hops to innovative brewing equipment. Each style is loaded with intense aromas and flavors presented in new ways, underscoring a passionate and progressive take on whole-cone hops.

Unibroue Fin du Monde (750 ml)

Floral bouquet, aromas of honey, spice, coriander, malt, and alcohol. Mildly yeasty with a complex palate of malt, fruit and spice notes followed by a smooth, dry finish. This beer goes down smooth and tastes fantastic. The alcohol is hidden well, but watch out the 9% will sneak up on you after you have had a couple. We recommend it to any beer lover.

  Unibroue Ephemere (750 ml)

White ale brewed with apple. Mouth-watering bouquet of Granny Smith apples, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon. Delicate balance of fruit and spice, hint of sweetness, hint of tartness, redolent of Granny Smith apples.

 Curious Traveller Shandy

An invigorating lemon shandy concotion. 2-row malted barley and malted wheat. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of lemon candy. Flavor is like a sweet lemon soda.

Sam Adams Porch Rocker

Perfect for any summer day, Samuel Adams Porch Rocker was inspired by traditional Bavarian Radlers that mix beer with German-style lemonade. For their bright and citrusy Radler, they blended a Helles beer with lemon for a fresh-squeezed lemon taste, effervescent sweetness, and slightly tart, refreshing finish. A light malt character and hint of hops balance out this summer brew.

Brooklyn Lager

 Brooklyn Lager is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which we’ve used in a Viennese-style beer to create an American original.

Shiner Bock

Bock reflects the tradition of genuine Bavarian beers as a brew only a craftsman like Kosmos Spoetzl, trained in the "Old Country," could bring to life. With its deep amber color, distinctive rich flavor and full body, Shiner Bock demonstrates the care of a handcrafted brewing process to bring forth a mellow taste free of the bitter aftertaste found in many micro, specialty and imported beers. Just think of it as Shiner smooth.

Shiner Wild Hare Light

Wild Hare is a classic American Pale Ale-richly hopped, fruity and floral. Munich malt nicely balances the assertive character of the U.S. Golding and Bravo hop varieties that give this brew its signature bitterness and aroma. Enjoy!

Shiner Variety 12 pack

Shiner Bock- Every drop of Shiner Beer is brewed in Shiner, Texas, by a handful of local craftsmen who take pride in their classic Shiner Bock. First brewed in 1913, this lightly-hopped, American-style bock has a clean flavor a slightly sweet finish.

Shiner Black Lager- Bohemian was first brewed to commemorate Shiner's 97th anniversary, it remains true to the old-world heritage of the German and Czech immigrants who settled Shiner. Imported Czech Saaz and Styrian hops, and select roasted malts make this "Schwarzbier" their darkest brew yet!

Shiner Blonde- A true golden lager with a golden heritage of natural brewing.

Shiner Hefe- This beer captures old-world Munich Malt, wheat grist used in a scant 1% of all brews worldwide, orange and lemon zest in a frothy classic example of bottle-conditioned beer. Adding clover honey and yeast just before it's bottled touches off a unique, secondary fermentation process inside every keg and bottle before its final release from the brewery.

Shiner Kosmos- A full-flavored, hop-jacked lager that is every bit as unique as the man himself and our way of saluting the brewmaster who started it all. This re-release is an American Pale Lager style beer available only in Shiner Family Packs.

Shiner Brewers Pride- Limited edition brew.

  Pretty Things Meadowlark 22oz bottle

Meadowlark IPA is a new juicy and floral hoppy, hoppy ale we brewed to celebrate the flavor and spirit of American craft brewing.  This 7% alcohol beer has a sunny orange-yellow colour, 85 International Bittering Units, a smooth mouthfeel and layer upon layer of soft flowery hops.  They wove earthy Citra and bitter Bravo hops from the Pacific Northwest with intensely fruity and aromatic Galaxy hops from Australia. The malts are English pale malt & mild ale malt, pale crystal (1.3% of the grist), flaked barley with malty highlights from Munich malt and a bijoux of Roasted Barley.  The resulting patchwork is as “American” tasting as short ribs and slaw, and provides an excellent accompaniment to that kind of food too!  Very hoppy and bitter.  Yum.

  Wormtown Hopulence 22oz bottle

The smell is bright fruity aroma that is a little dank but brings a juicy grapefruit and a touch if passion fruit in the nose. There is a true grassy aroma there in the nose as well giving a strong summertime feel.The taste is grassy and really brings the hops but without the bitterness at first. Juicy grapefruit again is here with some tangy lemon-like flavor that gives a bit of a zing. The grassy flavor comes back with a bitter bite at the end giving a touch of a bitterness that only holds onto you for a moment and then let's go.The feel of this beer is smooth with a nice medium body. A really nice drinkable feel that adds to the good flavor enhances this beer.

Wormtown Be Hoppy 16oz can

Exceptionally floral with a strong citrus presence as well. Notes of lemongrass, too. The malt has a vibrant honey biscuit flavor to it. The aftertaste has a touch of bitterness to accompany the lingering flowery taste. Medium bodied and refreshing.

A great IPA - certainly a New England standout. Makes a great summertime sipper.


Bulleit Bourbon

Bulleit Bourbon is made by following the small-batch technique inspired by Augustus Bulleit over 150 years ago. Only the highest quality ingredients are used. Bulleit Bourbon's subtlety and complexity stem from its unique blend of rye, corn and barley malt, along with special strains of yeast. Because Bulleit Bourbon is especially high in rye content, it has a bold and spicy character with a distinctively smooth, clean finish.

Kinky Liqueur

Kinky Liqueur is a naughty infusion of super premium vodka distilled 5 times with succulent mango, blood orange liqueur, and passion fruit.

Dr. McGillicuddy Root Beer Schnapps

Authentic root beer nose. The body, very sweet, like a can of A&W, and almost refreshing. Root beer nuts will find this a winner.

Devotion Vodka

100% gluten and sugar-free. As consumer demand for gluten-free and sugar-free products continues to increase, Devotion Vodka, an ultra-premium spirit is poised for consistent growth. As the world’s first sugar-free and gluten-free flavored vodka line, the team at Devotion Vodka is committed to delivering a demonstrably different, high-quality product that offers a superior taste profile.

Crispy and vibrant on the palate. It is an aromatic white wine with a floreal and fruity aromas of white rose, orange blossom,peach and candied citrus zest. Sunny and bright, it's an ideal wine for an aperitif with friends, and we recommend it for your first date.

90+ Lot 33 Rose

This is a real deal Rose, not that sweet pink stuff. Aromas of ripe strawberries fill the glass accompanied by mild notes of Provencal herbs, white pepper, and cotton candy. Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, and Mourvedre are hand harvested from several vineyards planted on windswept slopes along the foothills of the Cevennes, and then fermented and aged in tanks for seven months. Perfect for picnics and other outdoor festivities.

90+ Lot 26 Barolo

Garnet in color with a divine mixture of aromas that includes cherries, rose petals, cinnamon and hints of leather. The wine is lean but powerful, and dry but supple. The combination of flavor and texture leads to a generously long finish before taking your next sip.

Often called the King of Wines many consider Barolo to be Italy's greatest wine. It is made from grapes grown in vineyards south of Alba, in the Piedmont region of Italy. After a long, slow fermentation the wine is aged for two years in oak and then kept in bottle for another year before release. Although drinkable now, Barolo is one of the longest living wines and can be cellared for decades. We are excited to offer you this prestigious wine at such an approachable price.

90+ Lot 27 Barbera

Complex and concentrated aromas of raspberry, black cherry and stewed tomatoes with hints of toasted hazelnut and chocolate in the background. Barbera is Italy's third most planted red grape and probably its best kept secret. At home in Italy's Piedmont, Barbera was once known as the people's wine because of its versatility and drinkablity. Barbera is the quintessential food wine, capable of enhancing the enjoyment of nearly any meal. So grab a few bottles, call your friends, and gather together for some good company and delicious wine.

90+ Lot 110 Nebbiolo

Exquisitely perfumed aromas of succulent cherry fruit, fresh flowers, and soft spice. Light crimson in color with an astonishingly intense circus of flavor that starts with a dramatic boom of texture and coalesces into a harmonious finale of savoriness. Pour a glass with black truffle and mushroom risotto or filet mignon with a red wine reduction. It's okay if you make a yummy sound now. The Nebbiolo grape likely receives its name from (nebbia), or fog, which occurs frequently on the hills surrounding the town of Alba during the harvest month of October. This one is made from estate fruit picked and sorted by hand, fermented and then aged in Slavonian oak for one year before bottling. It's a captivating red produced by a family winery with a rich legacy of crafting praiseworthy wines.

Las Perdices Cabernet

The color is a beautiful ruby, cherry red. Even the aroma is of cherry. I promise, the color did not suggest that in any way. It is spicy with notes of dried thyme and oregano and fresh cracked peppercorn. Its perfume and bouquet is persistent enough you will have a sip and be hooked. This will be your everyday red. Its texture is soft and supple with balanced flavors of mature red berries, cherries (again) with tertiary aromas of licorice and dried fruits. The eight months of aging in French and American oak have rounded out its fruit tannins and are perfectly balanced throughout the palate. They are just as equally soft and supple. Did we mention, sweet?

 Las Perdices Malbec

This full-flavored malbec comes from one of the best spots for growing Malbec in Argentina, the famous Agrelo sub-region of the Lujan de Cuyo zone of Mendoza.  The reason why this is considered the “sweet spot” for the production of top-level malbec in Argentina is the unique combination of old vines, sandy soils, perfect climate, and remarkable day-night temperature variations that result in amazingly flavorful wines.  Get a case and savor the full-bodied, dry, structured, complex, textured and incredibly intense and concentrated flavors that put this far ahead of most malbecs in it's price range.

 Las Perdices Sauvignon Blanc

Intense passion fruit, mango & pink grapefruit aromas flood the nose with subtle mineral notes. Good attack on the palate, well balanced acidity & a long lasting finish, highlighting tropical fruit notes make this a tasty white wine.

Puerto Infinito Reserve Chardonnay

Clean, fresh, bright, spicy pineapple-grapefruit flavors and a toach of oak. Medium bodies. Serves well with fish and seafood dishes, creamy pasta sauces or roast chicken.

             Puerto Infinito Reserve Malbec

Dried plum, blackberry, spicy, pleasant finish with ripe tannins. An excellent wine to pair with a range of foods from steak, pasta and pizza.

Vina Chocalan Inspira Sauvignon Blanc

The fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards located on the hillsides of the Melipilla area, in the Maipo Valley of Chile. They are planted on granitic, well drained soils. 2013 will be remembered as one of the coolest vintages for Chile in the past decade. A slow, cool growing season made for elegant, aromatic wines with lower alcohol levels and fresh acidity. Light yellow colour. This Sauvignon Blanc shows lemongrass and citrus notes and a touch of herbal aromas. High acidity on the palate with fresh lemon flavours. Dry finish with lingering lime and grapefruit notes.

Noble Vines 446 Chardonnay

446 Chardonnay exhibits appealing aromas of golden delicious apples, pineapple and apricots. Medium bodied with a creamy mid-palate, this delightful wine offers flavors of peach and hints of toasty vanilla spice. Enjoy it on its own, or with soft cheeses, roast fowl and baked yams.

 Monte Oton Garnacha

The wine shows bright and full Garnacha notes of ripe black fruits, as well as raisins, blueberries, and plums, and it's even showing some overripeness. The mouth and finish are warm and relatively gentle. Drink now or in the next several years.

 Whitestone Vineyards Heavyweight Cabernet

In this award-winning Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, hints of dark fruits and subtle flavors of dark chocolate and tobacco entice the senses. The 2008 received 92 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, the 2009 follows in the footsteps. Our vineyard’s microclimate, which is perfect for growing wine grapes to make Bordeaux style wines, is truly reflected in this wine.

Whitestone Vineyards Heavyweight Chrdonnay

A sip or two of this rich, full-bodied Chardonnay “separates the pretenders from the contenders” proclaims its tasting notes. Filled with light lemony flavors and subtle floral aromas, there’s a delicate touch of oak for palate-pleasing pleasure. Heavyweight is vinted and bottled by White Stone Vineyards, Lodi, California.

 Mill River Plum Island White

Your perfect New England day describes Plum Island White. A day where the sun gods are smiling, the fish are biting and everything is right with the world. Enjoy
the aromas of pear, citrus and honey with fish, pizza or poultry any time of the year. Put on your shades and cast a line off the shore to Plum Island White. Relax. Rejuvenate. No worries.

Domaine Pichot Vouvray

Golden raisins on the nose and on the palate. Grape juicy, like table grapes concentrate. Easy to drink, already well-balanced with some elements of cloves, butter tarte tatin and a touch of maple sugar. Good fruit extension with some grapefruit and apple skin on the finish.

Aveleda Vinho Verde

This wine has a nice citrus color. Young and balanced, there is a sweet and delicate aroma marked by notes of fresh fruit. In the mouth, the wine shows to be fresh and vibrant.

 Deadbolt White Blend

This California red wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petit Syrah, and Shiraz. The exact percentages of each are under lock and key though…or behind the “dead bolt,” if you will! The wine itself is a deep ruby red in color with hints of purple as well. The aroma is of dark berries and just a hint of spice. If you like a jammy red wine, this is for you. The mouth feel is very smooth to boot. It would be a nice choice to serve at your dinner table, as it would be a crowd pleaser all around.

 San Quirico Vernaccia

Straw-yellow in color with stimulating aromas of spice, white flowers, dried apricots, fresh peach, and thyme; this silky, layered wine continues to unfold into the finish. Grown in hillside vineyards surrounding the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, this wine is composed entirely from Vernaccia grapes.  The grapes are chilled immediately following harvest and vinified at a very low temperature in cement vats, so that the final wine exudes a fresh, lively character.

Secateurs Chenin Blanc

A light but pure bouquet with lemon peel, grapefruit and hints of wet wool. The palate is crisp and vibrant on the entry with touches of lanolin and litchi nuts. This is so well balanced – uncomplicated but delicious.

Charles & Charles Chardonnay

The aromas start with notes of apple blossoms, lemon peel and subtle mango, and continue into mineral and wet slate notes with background of sweet pear, toasted spices and vanilla. On the palate you're first hit with crisp apple and orange rind with tremendous focus, and length. The wine walks a beautiful line between rich full flavors and finesse. There's luscious fruit and a touch of new oak without ever getting heavy or clumsy.

 Lindeman's Bin 65 Chardonnay

Bright and luminous to the eye, with orchard fruit and spice on the nose. Apples and vanilla on the palate, with citrus suggestions and minerals emerging in the finish. This is textbook Chardonnay that displays a surprisingly broad range of flavors, and is a diamond in the rough at this price point.

 Lindeman's Bin 50 Shiraz

The Linderman's Bin 50 has ripe generous blackberry fruit, black pepper on the finish and just a hint of oak. Australian Shiraz is one of the most popular wine styles and this is an excellent example.

 Monte Antico Red Blend

A perpetual Best Buy and a frequent selection for the Top 100 lists, Monte Antico is a Tuscan gem that over delivers vintage after vintage. Made from a selection of Tuscany’s finest vineyard sites, a blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot, Monte Antico is Neil & Maria Empson’s tribute to Tuscany. Importers of exceptional Italian wines for over thirty years the Empsons have grown a strong affinity with Italian wines and its terrior. Maestro Franco Bernabei does the honors as winemaker, selecting the best grape lots, fermenting slowly and then aging the finished wine 1 year in oak (80% in Slavonian, 20% French) and at least 6 months in the bottle to achieve a graceful balance of voluptuous berry tones and a soft forward style that’s ideal with food. James Suckling just scored it 90 points saying "A fruity wine with black cherry, blueberry and hints of pepper. Full and velvety with a long and delicious finish. Acidity is well-integrated with the fruit. One of the best value wines from Tuscany. Screw cap. A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.

Spring New Arrivals

Spring New Arrivals
It's the first full day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, which calls for celebration. Yesterday, on the equinox itself, you may have balanced eggs on end, danced in a circle with bells on your legs, or simply admired the animated horticultural Google doodle. Today, however, it is time to update your Happy Hour beverage to match the season. So now that the long, cold, snowy winter is finally over, we have begun to bring in some new products for your warm weather enjoyment. Here are some of the new arrivals at the store over the last several weeks.

Yuengling Beer
Yuengling Beer is finally available in Massachusetts and we're presently stocking the following flavors:
An iconic american lager famous for it's rich amber color and medium-bodied flavor with roasted caramel malt for a subtle sweetness and a combination of cluster and cascade hops, this true original delivers a well-balanced taste with a very distinct character.
Drawing from traditional brewing techniques this beer is skillfully crafted to deliver a consistently refreshing brew with well balanced character and only 98 calories.
Black & Tan
Black & Tan combines our popular Dark Brewed Porter with premium beer. Rich and dark in color, it has a well-balanced flavor with hints of caramel and coffee from the dark roasted malt that finishes smooth and satisfying.
Tuckerman Pale Ale
Released in 1998, this ale is brewed with specialty malts, some grown in Maine, and four types of hops. After fermentation, it is cold conditioned and dry-hopped in lagering tanks for maximum taste and quality. It is naturally carbonated in the bottle or keg using a German process called "krausening", where a small amount of fresh fermenting wort is added. This produces a delicate carbonation and superior flavor. From the Mash Tun to store shelves is a 30 day process.
Wells Banana Bread Beer
Tempting banoffee aromas tempered by a grassy, lemony nose all leading to a finely balanced, fresh, delicate flavour of peppery hops with a lingering dry finish. This beer has achieved a number of accolades including winner of "Beer of the Festival" award at CAMRA's London Drinker Festival in March 2002.
Sam Adams Summer
An American Wheat, brewed with malted wheat, lemon zest and grains of paradise - a rare pepper from Africa first used as a brewing spice in the 13th Century to create a crisp and spicy flavor and body.

Wicked Pissa 1. From the New England lexicon for 'something awesome:' Wicked (adj.) meaning 'very,' in the extreme; as in 'wicked cold.' Pissa (adj./noun) meaning something akin to "great" or "totally awesome." 2. Used as a descriptor; also often used as its own sentence. Eg: "I had a wicked pissa beer last night." You did?

An approachable blend that combines Chardonnay, Riesling and Moscato to create a luscious, vibrant wine in the bold style of Apothic. Intense flavors of peach, pineapple, honey and vanilla spice make this smooth white blend unforgettable.
Wild Horse Chardonnay
Wild Horse's exceptional Central Coast vineyard sites, combined with traditional winemaking techniques, helped to create this elegant, fruit-driven Chardonnay. Bright fruit flavors of crisp green apple and Bosc pear are beautifully complemented by subtle notes of vanilla, caramel and toasted oak.
Franciscan Chardonnay
This wine has an enticing nose showing layers of citrus, rich pear tart, honeydew melon, toasted hazelnut, and mineral notes complemented by hints of honeysuckle and vanilla cream. Flavors of vibrant d'Anjou pear and Fuji apple, with subtle pineapple, citrus, and honey highlights. The round and full palate is silky and bright, with good minerality, creamy complexity, and a long, clean finish of mineral, white nectarine, and Meyer lemon.
Cupcake Moscato
Vibrant and expressive with dominant floral notes and hints of bright fruit flavors – including peach, tropical fruits and lychee – this wine is soft and luscious. Just a hint of fine effervescence tickles the palate and balances the sweetness. Harvested from the Asti area of Italy, our Moscato Bianco grapes are gently picked and pressed. The juice is clarified immediately to maintain its complex aroma. The wine is then cool fermented in stainless steel tanks to draw out its full flavor and character.
Conundrum Red Blend
Intensely colored and fragrant, the wine opens up with evocative aromas of blackberry, raspberry, rhubarb and cola. On the palate, the wine is full bodied and exuberantly fruity, pairing black cherry, plum and pomegranate notes with more soulful cinnamon, lavender and cocoa nuances.

Fall is a season that has the word "beer" written all over it. Cool nights unleash the craving for hearty beers, whose colors mirror those of the turning leaves. Fall brews are more flavorful and more substantial than summer's bright quenchers. Colors get deeper and flavors get toastier as the tastes of the harvest table call out for malty partners. It doesn't take much to trade up to luxury in the beer world, so why not live a little? Check out one of these world-class brews next time you're cruising the six-pack aisle. From seasonal specialties to solid stand-bys, innovative American craft brews to international ambassadors of style, autumn's finest offerings await.

Brewed in the style of American Pale ale. Pours a bright amber color with a medium-body. Pleasant floral aromas are complemented by a distinct bitterness creating a beer for hop-lovers. Five varieties of malts blended with Chinook & Glacier hops create a great character & flavor.
Echigo Koshi Hikari
Echigo is Japan's oldest craft brewery founded in 1994 in Niigata, Japan shortly after "deregulation" in 1993. They started brewing in December 1994 and sold their first craft beer in February 1995. In 1996 they won a bronze medal in the World Beer Cup for their stout.

Curious Traveler™ is a fresh, bold year-round, craft-brewed, all malt wheat ale infused with real lemons and limes. This shandy has a lively fruity flavor and a powerful "throw your head back" fresh lemon aroma. In short – It's Quite a Refresher!
Battle Road Farmhouse Ale
A straw-gold rustic ale "on lees" that evokes a time long ago with a robust yeast strain, that likes it hot…a vigorous top-ferm
0enting classic that provides some of the best food pairing flavors on the planet. Of course we love it, and hope you do too. They temper this spicy, fruity yeast profile with pedigreed noble hops; East Kent Goldings for bittering and a generous dose of Hallertau Mittelfruh for aroma. This beer will increase in complexity and dryness over time, providing a bit of insolent freshness up front, and more refined dignity even months after the brew date kept in the right conditions…above all upright and away from light.

Battle Road 1775 ale
Their flagship brand. They use the best quality North American 2-Row barley malt, a bit of high-dried "Munich-style" a toasty "Biscuit" malt and a flavorful caramelized "Munich" malt to round out what is a predominately dry, crisp ale. The hop used is a single varietal, Slovenian-grown Styrian Goldings, added at various rates throughout the boil, including large doses towards the end to insure just a moderate bitterness with a pleasant aroma and flavor for these very fine hops.

Battle Road Lexington IPA
They select a trio of American grown classics and concoct a late kettle-addition-heavy schedule of hop additions to push forward a pronounced aroma of Humulus Lupulus while respecting the beautiful malts they've selected to round out this reddish, brassy golden ale. Dry and crisp, with a clean malt delivery and a burst of hop flavor, and even more aromatics of Chinook, Centennial and Cascade hops added from first wort to the last possible moment before fermentation. Go Green!
Shipyard Pumpkinhead
One of the most popular pumpkin beers of all time – Shipyard Pumpkinhead is hitting our shelves now. Pumpkinhead was first brewed by Shipyard in 2002. Pumpkinhead is actually spiced liked a pumpkin beer, with no real pumpkin in the brew. Hints of pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Wheat malt brings this beer full circle. Crisp and light. Grab yours now before it's gone for the season.

BBC's flagship brew is a light colored, medium bodied ale exhibiting exceptional freshness through its 2-Row Pale malt backbone and signature hop flavor and aroma. In the words of renowned beer writer Lew Bryson, Steel Rail EPA is "what the water in heaven oughta taste like."

A well balanced and flavorful brew, Berkshire Ale's medium body and aromatic finish hops offer something for all beer aficionados.

Berkshire Brewing Coffeehouse Porter

Robust and aromatic, Coffeehouse Porter is sure to please, no matter what time of day you choose to enjoy it.

Berkshire Brewing Lost Sailor IPA
A classic British-inspired IPA, Lost Sailor keeps an even keel with a well rounded malt profile to support generous dry-hopping with the time-honored Goldings hop variety. With its floral and citrus aroma and medium body, Lost Sailor is the perfect session beer, whether lost at sea or in the comfort of your own home or a local pub.

Berkshire Brewing River Ale
A truly unique ale, River is a dark American wheat beer that is "single-hopped" with Willamettes, accenting that variety's signature profile while letting the malts shine through. River Ale's slightly sweet flavor is accented with notes of nuttiness, fresh baked bread and a light spiciness of wheat. A brew that stands alone in the beer landscape.

Skinny Girl Bare Naked Vodka
This vodka is like satin sheets and silk robes all rolled into a smooth, clean and slightly sweet package. This low-cal no-carb naturally flavored vodka will play nice with anything you choose to add - it's design-your-own cocktail, Skinnygirl® Cocktails style. So go ahead and grab some ice or your favorite mixer and get Naked. We won't tell.
Bunratty Meade
Honey wine is an ancient beverage made from fermented honey and enjoyed by the peoples of Europe long before the Romans introduced wine from grapes. If you've been to the Bunratty Castle in County Clare, you will recognize this particular Mead as the second Mead served in the Castle's lower quarters, the first Mead being a warm, mulled red Mead that we've yet to find for sale anywhere. Maybe it was the fog, the chilly November air, or the wait to gain entrance to the castle itself, whatever the influence this was by far the very best Mead I've personally had the privilege of trying. The Bunratty white Meade is a tasty treat, and at its best when served slightly chilled, in my opinion.

Sipping Sally's Spanish Red
Sipping Sally's Spanish Red is made from 100% Tempranillo. A full-bodied deep, ruby red wine with aromas of vanilla and herbs. Plums, cherries, and strawberries tantalize the taste. Great with burgers, spicy sausages, tapas, pork, grilled or roasted meats.
Gaga Red Blend
A fun and value-driven California red that delivers sensuous aromas of black plums, fall spices, and dried black figs. The fig theme carries on the palate along with a stewed red fruit flavor, which hails from an abundance of Zinfandel. This is a great option when all you want to do is stay indoors and watch the leaves blow around.

Gaga White Blend
The wine offered crisp acidity, without being grapefruity, and the finish was clean and fresh! Explodes with aromas and flavors of crisp pear and apricot, while notes of honeysuckle linger over a lively texture. Tantalizing all by itself or over dinner with the most promising of company.
Trapiche Torrontes White
Yellow-greenish color, with golden hints. Flower and citrus aromas. Fresh in the mouth. Elegant, well balanced wine. Ideal as an aperitif with hors d'ouvres or seafood. Excellent with mild to spicy cuisine.

Trapiche Falling Star Malbec
This Malbec shows loads of spicy black fruits, with hints of tobacco. Juicy on the palate, this is an easy-to-drink, ripe Malbec to enjoy now.
Geno's Pinot Grigio
Straw green color. Dried herb, briny clay and straw aromas with a round, dry light-to-medium body and a nectarine pit and lemon pith finish. A rustic food style, try with oysters.
Giorgio & Gianni Viva Frizzante
Semi-sparkling wine with fine and generous bubbles, light golden straw color, nose of green apple, great peach taste, sweet, full bodied and well balanced, very refreshing.
Volandera Garnacha
The colour is breath-taking, a luminous violet. One is so eager to taste it that one almost forgets to smell it. It is incredibly fresh, light, fruit to the fore: the pallet, disco red liquorice, Kojak's lollipops…the candy shop of the 80's. Easy drinking, soft and smooth. Enjoy it fresh, in the sun and without inhibition. A wine in its element and without delusions of grandeur. Pure Garnacha. Pure fruit.

Mashjuga Pinot
This Pinot is deep and complex with an elegant nose. Berry and toasted oak notes mingle beautifully with plum and black cherry flavors. The tannins are soft, the finish is long. This is a bold Pinot Noir that demonstrates depth and structure.

Mashjuga Bubbly
This Bubbly is a delicate, fruit-forward sparkling wine, which is versatile enough for any occasion. Bright aromas of ripe apple give way to luscious notes of white peach on the palate. Its fine mousse (bubbles) lifts the fruit character and makes the wine a delightful and refreshing addition to any light cuisine, and a decadent treat with foie gras and potato chips!
Candoni Moscato D'Italia
Made from 100% Moscato Bianco grapes from the Apulia Region in the very south of Italy where the diversity of land, its terrains, exposures as well as its Mediterranean climate allow this winery to craft a semi sparkling sweet Candoni Moscato wine of excellent quality. Semi-sparkling, but remarkably fruity and fragrant, it has an excellent balance of sweetness and acidity.

Candoni Prosecco
Candoni Prosecco is produced in the flourishing vineyard nestled in the midst of the hilly Prosecco district close to the historic city of Conegliano in the Veneto Region in Italy. Delicate and fruity with a hint of honey, Candoni Prosecco is crisp and clean in the mouth with a pleasant acidity that leaves behind a delicious and persistent freshness with a dry, well-balanced taste.
Apothic Dark

Some girls are born beautiful. Some girls are born rich. And some girls are born smart. The smart girls grow up and use their brains to make money to buy great clothes and travel abroad and throw dinner parties…where they serve chardonnay that they didn't spend a fortune on…in wine glasses brought home from their last trip to Paris. Tastes like pear and citrus in the beginning, with baked apple on the finish.
