Hennessy Masters Blend No. 3 Cognac

Wally's price: $120.00

A personal blend and a distinctive expression of the Hennessy craft! Crafted to reflect the predilections of Hennessy Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, this cognac is unique by virtue of its singularity and hand-curated selection process. Rich aromas recall its aging in young oak barrels, and on the palate, expressions of praline with a slight character and rounded finish envelop the senses. It is bottled at 43% to highlight the precision of the blending. A hand-selected single-batch Cognac, that is truly one-of-a-kind.


Casa Dragones Joven

Wally's price: $275.00

Dubbed the “Tastemaker’s Top Tequila” by Forbes Magazine, Casa Dragones Joven is a small batch, master blend of 100% Blue Agave silver and extra aged tequila, rested in new American oak barrels for five years, for a complex, smooth taste that is perfect for sipping and pairing with food! A must-have in the collection of any tequila-lover.


Kavalan Vinho Barrique Cask Strength

Wally's price: $250.00

Kavalan Taiwanese Single Malt Whisky is crafted by the King Car Group, which was established in Taiwan in 1956. The whisky is made entirely in Taiwan from malted barley that is imported from Scotland. After the whisky has been distilled, it is matured in used American oak wine barrels that have been toasted and recharred. These barrels, which have aged both red and white wine, lend notes of fruit, vanilla, and oak to the whisky, as well as caramel, chocolate and spice, leading to an elegant, brown sugar finish. Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky was named the World's Best Single Malt Whisky at Whisky Magazine's 2015 World Whiskies Awards. It also received the Double Gold Medal at the 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Ginraw Gastronomic Gin

"I feel this is the most exciting and delicious product, (wine or spirit) I have tried in a long time. Incredible." - Christian Navarro.

Ginraw, the newest star on the gin scene, is causing quite the stir and for good reason. This ultra-premium, small batch Spanish Gin is complex, balanced, and delivers captivating notes of kaffir lime, bay leaf, and citrus. Perfect in martinis, bloody marys, or served neat, Gin-raw is a necessary addition for your bar- Shop it here!

Chopin Family Reserve Vodka

Wally's price: $150.00

The world’s first rested, super-premium young potato vodka. Naturally gluten-free, Family Reserve features a special variety of young potato that was planted during the 2016 growing season in the rich, dark soil of the estate fields surrounding the distillery. The potatoes were harvested when they were still young, producing a sweeter tasting profile with delicate earthy notes. The spirit was then left undisturbed in fifty-year-old Polish oak barrels for two years to allow time for it to rest and mellow before being bottled, by hand. All the potatoes used in Family Reserve are naturally-grown without chemicals or pesticides on the Chopin distillery estate grounds. It is also ideal for sipping chilled neat, over the rocks, in martinis or signature cocktails.

Bruichladdich Octomore 9.3 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Wally's price: $240.00

Just 52 tonnes of precious Islay barley were malted to produce this single farm Octomore 09.3 edition. Raised in Irene’s Field on Octomore Farm in 2011, this uber-provenance single malt was later distilled and filled into 134 casks. Predominantly second-fill, the gentler influence of the wood allows more of the locally grown barley flavours to cut through the legendary peat smoke.

Mandala Extra Anejo Tequila

Wally's price: $175.00

Elegant with a great body, with 7 years of aging in French oak barrels. Dedicated to those that love the extraordinary and special. The bottle alone is a stunning gift - a work of art in itself - and the tequila inside is just as gorgeous to match.

Argonaut The Claim Brandy

Wally's price: $200.00

"The argonauts of the gold rush were charmed and captivated by Sam Brannan's Claim of gold in the American River. His proclamation proved the catalyst to a new era in American history, accelerating westward expansion. This is argonaut's claim. Chosen by established industry experts, this brandy was mined from our rare aged stocks. What you will find is a claim-worthy spirit. Deserving of its own place in history. With sweet aromatics of caramel which give way to robust brandy layered with flavors of caramelized fruit, dried fig, toasted oak, and brown spice." - Argonaut Brandy

Lairds Single Cask Apple Brandy

Wally's price: $50.00

Laird's has been producing apple brandy since 1780. Filled by hand, this Single Cask Selection was specifically chosen from their historic internal Bonded Warehouse #1. An American Classic.


Goslings Papa Seal Wally's Single Barrel Bermuda Rum

Wally's price: $225.00

Goslings has finally put out an ultra premium rum. Wally's is the first to release this amazing spirit. A blend of amber and dark rum aged for around 15 years. We went all the way to Bermuda to hand select this barrel with one of the owners Malcolm Gosling. Only 12 barrels for the world and Wally's is the first and only one to get a barrel on the west coast. This rum drinks like a fine cognac, a dazzling array of bright fruit with rich butterscotch and a finish that lingers for minutes. This is truly a find and only 216 bottles for the world means it will dry up sooner than later. When you can only have the best, Goslings Papa Seal Rum!
