Local Honey from the Rockefeller Center Farmer’s Market
Alcyone Tannat Dessert Wine; from Uruguay. A port-like wine we had with dessert Thursday night
Vinedo de los Vientos Brooklyn Buzz Mead made from NYC honey
Stranahan’s Colorado whiskey another small batch distiller, I thought about picking up a bottle of this when we were in Denver, but I did not want to have to check a bottle of whiskey and/or let the TSA drink it. Much easier to bring it on a train from New York than a plane from Colorado.
Bagpiper’s Scottish Ale; a fine example of the style from Pennichuck Brewing Company of Milford, NH.. Not too bitter, low carbonation, and it came in a 1 liter swing-top bottle!
Greylock Gin from Berkshire Mountain Distillers; sawe it in a liquor store on Madison Ave; one of my vendors had called to tell me that there was a problem with the credit card I gave him. I decided to test this assertion by buying some booze for my wife. (there was no problem).
And, lastly, the twelve-pound loaf of Lithuanian Rye bread from Silver Bell Bakery in Queens.
