Introducing a new line of premium spirits now available at French 75...Bhakta. This line of coveted spirits ranges from Rye and Bourbon to Brandy and Armagnac. Their founder Raj Bhakta, formerly of Whistle Pig, discovered a cellar in France filled with a range of spirits, primarily Armagnac, that dated back to 1868. These are limited time offers, many of which are only available until supply is gone. We are offering:

1928: A blend of rye, calvados, and 100yr old Armagnac.

2013: Bourbon finished in Armagnac casks

27&07: A blend of Brandy aged from 7-27 years aged in Islay Scotch Casks

1990: Jamaican Rum finished in Armagnac casks

1983: 40year old Armagnac

1973: 50year old Armagnac

There is so much more to say about all of these spirits, but you will just have to stop by to get the full tale. We offer all of these in 1oz or 2oz pours. Cozy up and savor something truly special this holiday season. Cheers!

Cayeya! A new line of 100% agave Tequila's that are absolutely excellent. There are no additives whatsoever. The Blanco has a rich natural sweetness and the bottle is made out of recycled Mexican Coke bottles. The reposado is aged in American White Oak barrels and the Anejo is aged 15.5 months in American Oak before spending 2.5 months in French Oak. Both are outstanding. If your in the mood for some excellent sipping tequila be sure to stop by! Cheers!
