Along with its amazing flavor, the gin’s dark red color will make this gift a conversation piece at the dinner table.

Wyoming Whiskey For Discerning Santas
Small batch whiskey, we have been told, is a welcome trend. The Mead family first came to Wyoming in 1890 as ranchers. While subsequent generations have endeavored in law, politics, and extreme skiing, Sam Mead is leading the fifth generation toward renown as a premier whiskey producer. Wyoming Whiskey products include four varieties. Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey is a traditional bourbon whiskey that is dark amber in color and smooth to the taste buds. Flavors that can be detected include brown baking spices, vanilla crème, caramel, and cinnamon.

Wyoming Whiskey can be found at local liquor retailers as well as via the company’s website:



Cuervo Reserva de la Familia
Reserva de la Familia is the world’s first extra-añejo tequila. It is hand selected from the Cuervo® family’s private collection. Each bottle is made using only blue agave harvested at its peak maturity after seven to twelve years of growing in the field, and aged in French and American oak barrels for a minimum of three years. Not for shots or margueritas, Reserva de la Familia is best served in a snifter, allowing for full appreciation of its flavors, aroma, and velvety finish. At about $130 per 750ml bottle, this is a rare treat for most of us, but worth it if you can swing it.
