Updated: Sep 3, 2019
Our Whiskey Festival has evolved into a complete spirits festival and more! If you want a palate cleanser from the 200 whiskies being featured, try some of these!
1. Bacardi Gran Reserva Limitada Rum
Perhaps the coolest part of this product is where you'll be tasting it. Our back cigar tent will now be sponsored by Bacardi! Sip on premium aged rums and enjoy a complimentary cigar in the crisp autumn air. We'll have some Caribbean music playing to help set the mood. Bacardi Gran Reserva Limitada is a barrel-aged premium limited edition release, combining rums that have been exquisitely aged for up to 16 years.

2. Herradura Ultra Anejo Tequila
95 Points, Wine Enthusiast
With the perfect blend of our premium Anejo and Extra Anejo barrels, ULTRA is a crystal-clear tequila. A subtle hint of agave nectar offers a superior taste that will transport tequila connoisseurs beyond smoothness. This tequila landed in Wine Enthusiasts Top 100 of 2016 when it was first launched.

3. Asylum Distillery Ginger Zap
A craft vodka distilled down the road in Bridgeport. Asylum is all about making the most interesting flavors possible using locally grown corn to create craft, small-batch bold taste spirit sensations. Asylum Distillery never adds sugar, always uses non-GMO corn and will never introduce a product you can make better yourself at home. Since their start in 2014, we try to live up to our motto, ”Distilling the spirit of Connecticut”. Ginger Zap is an infusion of ginger root in vodka which creates a bold flavor similar to a strong ginger beer.

4. Loyal Lemonade, Blueberry, and Tea
This is not a spiked seltzer full of carbonation and this isn't a concoction of fake, sweet ingredients you can't pronounce. These canned cocktails are all natural and uses fresh fruit to provide a bright, easy-sipping and refreshing drink. Available in three delicious varieties: Loyal Lemonade (9% abv), Loyal Lemonade Blueberry (7% abv), and Loyal Raspberry Tea (7%)

5. Robert Mondavi Private Selection Barrel Aged Wines
Wines at a whiskey festival? You better believe it. What makes these wines special are that they are aged in former bourbon and rum barrels to create a deep and intense flavor. Created by the world renowned Robert Mondavi and apart of his Private Selection series. Enjoy a delightfully different Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, as well as a Rum Barrel Aged Merlot. Cheers!

6. Big Gin Gin Bourbon Barreled
90 Points, Wine Enthusiast. Bourbon Barreled Big Gin is a rare and rounded spirit. Aged 6 months in a once used Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels, this gin reveals rich and robust flavors perfect for mixing or sipping. The palate builds on that mild coconut sweetness with vanilla and plenty of spicy fireworks-coriander, white pepper and cayenne-finishing flavorful and fairly hot.
