Possible Bourbon Shortage On The Horizon?

Burbons for sale summerlinI was reading an article today which discussed the high demand of Kentucky Bourbon. Shane Ferro of the Business Insider stated, “Because of the recent spike in popularity of the brown spirit, distillers, who generally need to age even the cheapest stuff for 8-10 years, are warning that a major shortage is coming.”

Here’s what Buffalo Trace had to say in its distillery email blast today:

Last year we warned consumers that a shortage was looming, but many markets across the nation are just now feeling the full effects. Along with increased production, adding more bottling lines and hiring more people, we have also hired a full-time barrel allocation manager, just as we intended last year. Despite the increase in distillation over the past few years, bourbon demand still outpaces supply. Bourbon must be matured in new oak barrels and we age many of our barrels for eight to ten years, and some over two decades. That’s a long time to wait for a bottle of bourbon. Not to mention, with the amount of bourbon lost to evaporation over time, barrels are half empty after ten years. The increase in sales, coupled with the aging process and evaporation loss, leads to a shortage with no end in sight. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we try to catch up!

We carry many rare bourbons at Roy’s Liquor in Summerlin including Buffalo Trace products. Most of our clients that appreciate fine liquors who have heard about the potential price increases, have been stocking up on the finest of bourbons. Please stop by to see our inventory. In addition, we can special order the hardest to find bourbons.

 

Screaming Eagle Wine in the National Press

screaming eagle wine summerlin las vegasWe ran across an article regarding a restaurant patron who misunderstood the cost of the wine he was purchasing with dinner. He thought he was paying $37.50 for a bottle of Cabernet at Bobby Flay Steakhouse. When he received his bill, he was shocked to find out the cost of the bottle of wine was $3,750. Of course with the restaurant markup he had purchased a 2011 bottle of Screaming Eagle wine.

Screaming Eagle Winery and Vineyards is a California wine estate producing limited amounts of varietal wine; due to the small quantities produced and high prices commanded, their wines are considered cult wines. The winery is located in Oakville, California, north of the town of Napa in the Napa Valley. The vineyard area extends 48.21 acres (19.51 ha), planted with varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc , and a small amount of Sauvignon blanc. The vineyards are managed by David Abreu Vineyard Management and tended to by vineyard foreman Jorge Delgado and his team. In 2006 34 acres were replanted. The annual production ranges from 400 to 750 cases (between 5,000 and 9,000 750ml bottles). The winemaker is Nick Gislason and Michel Rolland is a consultant.

Trying to buy this wine is another story. You can find the wine at fine dining establishments but you will pay a hefty price. You can find the wine at auctions. You can even get on the official Screaming Eagle Waiting List, however many have been on that waiting list for years.

We have acquired this wine in the past for our high end clients. While we do not have this wine in stock we can get it for you at the best possible price and we do carry other fine wines you won’t find in the larger Las Vegas liquor stores.

Please come by our store in Summerlin to view our inventory or to place your order for a bottle of Screaming Eagle wine.

 

 

 

Rip Van Winkle Kentucky Bourbon

old rip van winkle bourbon summerlinRoy’s Liquor is now carrying Old Rip Van Winkle Kentucky Bourbon. The photo to the left shows the first two distillations we have received.

Old Rip Van Winkle 10yr – 107 Proof

This wonderful bourbon is bottled as close to barrel proof as possible. We add just a splash of our Kentucky limestone well-water when we empty the barrels for bottling. Thus, this whiskey is as smooth as any you will find. The more water you add to whiskey from its natural barrel proof to its bottle proof, the harsher it becomes. This 107 barrel proof seems to be just right. Rated 94 by the Beverage Tasting Institute

Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year – 90.4 Proof

Proof Van Winkle Special Reserve is the perfect combination of age and proof. This sweet, full bodied whiskey has been described by some as “Nectar”. We agree! The 12 years of aging and medium proof of 90.4 seem to be just right in creating a very pleasant drink of whiskey. This fine bourbon can compete with any excellent cognac as an after dinner drink. The overall impression is rich and deep. “Well crafted…elegant, stately…balanced beautifully”-Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal. Rated 98 by the Beverage Tasting Institute

You can find the Old Rip Van Winkle bourbon at Roy’s Liquors in Summerlin
