Hennessy Paradis Impérial

Created in 2011, Hennessy Paradis Impérial is a rare Cognac that exemplifies ultra-precise selection, maturation and blending, comprised of only 10 out of 10,000 eaux-de-vie of any given vintage. This blend defies preconceptions about old Cognacs with its pale color and non-traditional taste: the golden hue is unprecedented for eaux-de-vie of this age; further, maturation in very old casks only slightly influence the blend’s flavor, preserving the subtleties of these very unique eaux-de-vie, which are sourced from one of the oldest libraries in the world.

uKeg from GrowlerWerks’

If you have joined the growler craze because you love getting a fresh pour of beer at a brewery that you can take home so that you can enjoy that tap experience, there is only one growler for you, uKeg from GrowlerWerks’. The uKeg literally is like having a mini keg at your disposal and like a regular keg, the uKeg will keep your beer fresh for weeks. The uKeg uses small CO2 cartridges that dispense one uKeg full of beer per cartridge and leave just enough pressure that you can use it to clean the growler with water, and pour through the tap.

In addition to holding beer, eight Portland establishments will be showcasing the versatility of the uKeg by participating in GrowlerWerks’ 12 Days of Cocktails from December 9th to December 20th. You can cast a vote for your favorite cocktail on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, using the event hashtag #12CraftTails. Each vote enters a person into a drawing for a uKeg 128 for their own crafting and pouring pleasure. The winning pub also wins prizes from GrowlerWerks. uKeg makes for the perfect gift for the beer lover in your family this holiday season.

Wine Nook

No two ways about it: bag-in-box (BIBs) wine is the green choice. Less energy is used in production compared to glass, and 11 times less greenhouse gases for transportation. With a growing number of progressive wineries turning to BIBs, the only reason left for sticking to bottles is conservative ideas of what wine containers should look like. The artist-designed Wine Nook is the attractive, eco-friendly answer. The solid wood containers, each uniquely crafted and hand-distressed, hold 20 glasses (versus 5 from a standard bottle) while BIBs keep wine fresher longer. Hand-forged metal scroll feet raise the tap to make room for glasses and small chalkboards let you note the contents. The Wine Nook is functional art that compliments decors and palates.
