SIERRA NORTE SINGLE BARREL WHISKEY NAMED TO TOP 20 BY WHISKEY ADVOCATE
LEADSLINGLERS ARRIVES IN MASSACHUSETTS

Abacus Distributing welcomes Leadslinglers to its portfolio.  With limited exceptions, the brand is available statewide and had begun shipping.


ABOUT THE LEADSLINGERS

Men who believed in freedom and good booze who laid down their lives, forging the bedrock of this Republic, and in doing so, created a new species of man: the American. Americans conquered the western frontier. Men of piss and vinegar who tamed the wild, battled the elements, and established the first American saloons. It’s in this fine tradition that members of the veteran community present to you: Leadslingers’ Whiskey.


Building upon their deep dedication to bring unique products to the veteran and second amendment communities, the call to make a whiskey as bold as America was heard like an eagle’s scream. This is a story about seizing opportunity when life throws it at you, while never forgetting where you came from. This is a story about men who pursue excellence. It’s about freedom. It’s about raising a glass to tradition, but also raising the bar of performance. This is the story of America, encapsulated in the story of seven men with a vision.


 Leadslingers’ Whiskey is produced by seven combat veterans, from the US Army Rangers, USAF TACP, Special Forces, and Paratrooper communities. Their love for America and fine whiskey, is what the company is all about. They wanted to craft a whiskey that was enjoyable and unrepentantly supported the Second Amendment. By remaining active in their civilian and military communities, Leadslingers’ strives to set an example. Be proud of who you are. Be bold. No apologies. 


And that is why Leadslingers’ name is devoted to the Second Amendment, and all Americans who exercise it. Like those who stood at Lexington and Concord as the British tried to seize their arms and said “no!”—you understand that freedom exists as long as you’re willing to defend it. Like the men who tamed the West, you understand that you and you alone are master of your faith. Pursue happiness, and terminate any who threaten your life or liberty. Leadslingers’ salutes you! America salutes you! Now pour a shot of boldness forged in the minds of battle hardened patriots and enjoy!

OLIVER APPLE PIE WINE WILL MAKE ITS DEBUT HERE IN MASSACHUSETTS FOR A VERY SHORT TIME.  THE WINE IS RELEASED IN SEPTEMBER AND QUICKLY SELLS OUT EVERY YEAR.

ABOUT THE WINE:

You’ll imagine we spent hours crushing and pressing fresh-baked pies. You’re almost right. For this seasonal wine, we painstakingly perfected the balance of tart, crisp, fresh apple and creamy sweet vanilla. Oliver Apple Pie wine features fresh-pressed, 100% apple wine (no concentrates!).

 

No baking. No fuss. No forks. Just fun. #losethefork



ABOUT THE WINERY

We're not afraid to have our heads in the clouds. You could even say dreaming big is what Oliver Winery does best. What started as a hobby back in the 1960s, has grown Oliver Winery into an employee-owned company and one of the largest wineries east of the Mississippi.

 

Oliver is a world-class destination, ranked among Travel + Leisure's top 25 wineries to visit in the U.S. in 2017. In 2018, Wine Business Monthly named Oliver one of the top 50 wineries in the U.S.

 

As we grow, our philosophy remains the same. We believe that all styles of wine deserve the highest craft and respect. We make our top-rated wines in the gentlest way possible, and each one of them share one common characteristic: fruit-forward taste.



New from Washington State.  Tattoo Girl Riesling and Rose from William Weaver Wines in the Columbia Valley. 

The Riesling is made in a refreshing off dry style with aromas of peach, honeysuckle and a hint of citrus. This wine has a well-balanced minerality and a crisp clean finish

This Rosé is made in a refreshing dry style with flavors of strawberries, ample fruit, and spice aromas. This wine has a well-balanced minerality finish.

HIMBRIMI OLD TOM GIN FROM ICELAND HAS ARRIVED

From Iceland, comes this amazing Gin.  Ready for a something unique.  This is truly small batch.  Currently, the first batch produced is available for a short time.


Himbrimi gin was created by artist Óskar Ericsson to be the perfect fishing companion, and is inspired by the scents of herbs that grow along riverbanks. Infused with anglica seeds, honey and Artic thyme - a herb that smells much like lavender – this is a bittersweet and intensely floral Old Tom style gin.

Himbrimi is named after the bird known in English as the Loon or Great Northern Diver, one that is a common sight for fishermen.

CABERNET CORPORATION APPOINTS ABACUS DISTRIBUTING AS A STATEWIDE DISTRIBUTOR
CABERNET CORPORATION OF NOVATO CALIFORNIA HAS APPOINTED ABACUS DISTRIBUTING TO REPRESENT THE AWARD WINNING LA PLAYA, VINO DE EZZAGUIRRE AND AXEL FROM CHILE.  DON RODOLFO FROM ARGENTINA.

ABACUS DISTRIBUTING IS EXCITED ABOUT THIS NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH A FAMILY OWNED COMPANY WITH DEEP ROOTS IN THE WINE BUSINESS.

ABOUT CABERNET CORPORATION:

Our name is certainly different. While it sounds like a large corporation, the company has been privately owned by the Axelsen family since its inception in 1980.

And while we import Cabernet Sauvignon, we also ship many other wonderful varietals, including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Torrontés, Carmenére, Petit Verdot, robust blends, and 100-Year "Old Vine" Malbecs.

We take a forward-thinking, modern approach to wine production and sales, for fresh, imaginative and compelling choices for established wine lovers as well as younger, hip consumers.

CabCorp also owns Viña la Playa vineyard and winery in Colchagua Valley, Chile, and produces a large majority of the estate-bottled wines it brings into the U.S. For nearly 30 years, we have focused on what makes us unique: a relatively small, extremely focused portfolio emphasizing the finest balance of superior quality and value.
ABACUS DISTRIBUTING APPOINTED STATEWIDE DISTRIBUTOR FOR DE LUZE COGNAC
Roust America has appointed Abacus Distributing as the statewide distributor for De Luze Cognac.  The appointment is effective immediately.

De Luze has a long history of making high quality cognacs.  The family can be traced back to 1620.  The Boinaud Family owns the largest vineyard of the Cognac Appellation. The Domaine of 410 hectares is located in Grande Champagne. This vineyard allows the Boinaud family to propose a range of Cognac De Luze Fine Champagne containing 70% of Grande Champagne, well above the minimum requirement of the appellation and therefore offering a higher degree of quality to De Luze

The Boinaud Family has its own cooperage where the Master cooper produces and repairs barrels.
We toast our barrels in a very special way to enhance the elegance and the delicacy of our Grande Champagne Cognacs during their ageing..

SANDARA WHITE AWARDED 92 POINTS

Intensely pungent aromas of grapefruit and sweet melon also feature background hints of fresh green herbs. A gentle bubble is pleasantly foamy on the palate, allowing the mellow sweetness to cascade over the tongue while remaining fresh and clean.


SANDARA RED AWARDED 89 POINTS


A low-alcohol sparkling red bursting with candied red berry fruit, it’s easy-drinking and semi-sweet without being cloying. Pours with a fine head of frothy bubbles. Pair it with anything doused in sweet-tangy barbecue sauce.



SANDARA RED SANGRIA AWARDED 94 POINTS


This light red sangria has a lively spritz that does a great job of keeping the palate invigorating. There are a broad spectrum of fresh fruit flavors — notably red apple, lemon zest, and ripe grapes. There is a touch of sweetness and very good balance.
