Charbay's Alambic Pot StillCocktail of the Month: CHARBAY Aperitifs (Ready-to-Drink!)
Over the past 10 years, we've personally made a lot of cocktails. Just in time for summer, we're pleased to announce that we've bottled two of our favorite recipes: Green Tea & Pomegranate.
No mixers, no measuring...just pour them on the rocks, or shake for a martini, and add a twist of lemon. "They're ready already!" explains Marko with a grin. (And at 21% alcohol, they pack a good punch.) 
Online special - includes limited-edition Charbay rocks glasses and shipping's included. Valid thru 5/31/08
Have a great wine bar, restaurant (sushi & Green Tea, anyone?) or store in mind? Available in CA only; American Wines & Spirits. (The aperitifs can be sold under beer/wine licenses!) Rating - rating  "When Charbay launches an RTD, you have to pay attention. A super-easy, premium before dinner drink."
Charbay WhiskeyCHARBAY Whiskey II: The First Whiskey Made with Great-Drinking Beer
Did you know whiskey is distilled beer? 
Yes, really! Normally referred to as "low wash" or "distiller's beer," the watery, fermented base of most whiskies isn't something you'd want to serve your friends.
Leave it to Miles & Marko to ponder "what if"...In 1999, they decided to distill 20,000 gallons of great Pilsner & added a few other speical twists. Now it's 9 years old. (Read more)
Call us at 707.963.9327 to secure your allocation of this historic breakthrough in whiskey distillation. The perfect gift for Father's Day, whiskey collectors (and those who don't even need a reason.)
