SAM’S UNIQUE GIFT GUIDE
MAKE THEM FEEL SPECIAL WITH OUR TOP 5 UNUSUAL LIQUOR GIFTS!
WHAT DO YOU BUY FOR A LIQUOR CONNOISSEUR?
Finding a gift for a friend who is also a liquor expert can be tricky – even if you are a fellow aficionado it can be a struggle to find a truly unusual present for a special occasion.
As one of the best online liquor stores, Sam Liquor and Cigars understands how important it is to have options.
We have something distinctive for all tastes and all budgets – and whether you want to shop online or come to our San Diego store in person, we are always happy to help. In the meantime, why not read on for our top 5 unusual liquor gifts?
#1 CASA MAESTRI RESERVA ANEJO TEQUILA
This delight is created by true masters of tequila, using only the finest agave in their traditional production process. Anejo means ‘aged’, so this tequila is full-flavored, with subtle oak and spices, and a lingering smooth agave finish.
Bonus unique point: the bottle is as beautiful as the spirit within!
#2 OLD FITZGERALD 14 YEAR BOTTLED IN BOND
‘Bottled-in-bond’ means that the bourbon whiskey is required to be truly unique – it must be the product of a single distillation season by one distiller at one distillery.
Inspired by an Old Fitzgerald diamond decanter from the 1950s, both the packaging and spirit pay tribute to the history of the famous Old Fitzgerald brand – which is renowned for its distilling pedigree. A beautiful thing, 14 years aged and released in fall 2020 – grab one for the whiskey lover in your life!
Bonus unique point: All barrels used in making this whiskey were made in the fall of 2005.
#3 EAGLE RARE 10-YEAR-OLD BOURBON
Is Eagle Rare hard to find? In short: yes it is. But more than that, this is known as a rare whiskey because of its unusually high quality, at quite an affordable price, and the fact that it is produced at the coveted Buffalo Trace Distillery. Eagle Rare is aged for at least ten years, and every barrel is carefully selected to provide consistency and uniqueness.
Bonus unique point: this is one of the most unique bourbons in the world!
#4 KNOB CREEK 15-YEAR-OLD STRAIGHT BOURBON LIMITED EDITION
Knob Creek 15 Years is a Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey that has been aged for 15 years. It has received consistently great reviews by whiskey lovers all over the world – and we can see why, with its heady aroma of caramelized oak, hints of sweet vanilla, and baking spices. We also love its glimmers of smooth caramel and toffee that remind us of our childhood, perfectly balanced with more grown-up flavors of toasted oak and leather.
Bonus unique point: It is Limited Edition – snap it up, quick!
#5 ARMAND DE BRIGNAC ACE OF SPADES CHAMPAGNE BRUT GOLD
Armand de Brignac Champagne is a prestige Champagne brand, and this delightful bottle of bubbly is the result of centuries of perfecting the art of its creation. Armand de Brignac Champagne has impressed wine critics and connoisseurs all over the world – in 2010 it was even voted the number one Champagne in the world in a blind taste test of 1,000 brands. It was also named the number one Blanc de Noirs Champagne in the world in 2016. If you are looking for Sam’s Ace of Spades champagne price, have a look in our online shop
