Suzy-Q’s Bar-B-Que Shack

June 2014

For our 3rd Annual Bourbon & BBQ event, Gates Circle Wine & Liquor returned to Suzy-Q’s Bar-B-Que Shack, a fantastic smokehouse you’d think was ripped straight out of the south and deposited near the banks of the Niagara River. If you missed the event, or you’ve never paid Suzy a visit, grab yourself some pulled pork and pour a glass or two of whiskey. We recommend Smooth Ambler Rye, and maybe a little Smooth Ambler Straight Bourbon to switch things up. These whiskies both come from West Virginia, perfectly illustrating that great American spirits don’t have to come from Kentucky.

If by now you’ve run out of pulled pork, perhaps give Suzy-Q’s another visit and grab something, anything, with the smoky flavor you can no longer live without. Also, provided you’re ready to put the Smooth Ambler back in the liquor cabinet, you might consider moving on to Jefferson’s Reserve Very Old Bourbon, or even Calumet Farm Bourbon, just to remind yourself how good the stuff from Kentucky can be. Once you hit the dessert course, bring it back home with some Catskill Provisions New York Honey Whiskey, an infusion of real wildflower honey into Finger Lakes Distilling Rye. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Oliver’s Restaurant Wine Dinner

May 2014

Oliver’s Restaurant continues to demonstrate that it may not even be possible to get a bad meal while you’re there. Each of the dinners they have graciously hosted with Gates Circle Wine & Liquor have featured diverse, interesting, and most importantly delicious menus with dishes that perfectly compliment the evening’s wines.

Polaner Selections generously donated their time to have a drink with us, presenting several wines of superb quality and character. When Domaine de Trevallon decided to clear out the rocky deposits on their property with a judicious application of dynamite, it might not have occurred to them when their vines were first planted in 1973 that they would soon be making some of the most highly regarded wines in Southern France. Gerard Boulay, with a winemaking heritage dating back to 1380, surely knows a thing or two about doing things the right way with minimal human interference. His wines are produced with naturally occurring yeast, and his Clos de Beaujeu Sancerre is bottled without filtration. Moulin Touchais’ cellars have been carefully managed by eight generations of the Touchais family, and their wines are only released after a minimum of 10 years aging. The 1981 vintage Chenin Blanc is a superior wine that has matured gracefully.

All of these wines and more are available locally at Gates Circle Wine & Liquor and nationally at gatescircleliquor.com.
