    Cask, Artisanal Beverage Purveyors

    The interest in products from craft distilleries is growing to the point where this San Francisco retailer, Cask, is hanging its hat on featuring them, even though it carries all of the normal stuff too. Like consumers, though, they're not quite able to distinguish between actual craft-made products, such as Hudson Baby Bourbon and Wasmunds Malt Whiskey, and the non-distiller producer products like Templeton.

    They are, by the way, selling the A. H. Hirsch 16-year-old (gold foil) for $400.

    Re: Cask, Artisanal Beverage Purveyors

    There is a lot of hype about the Baby Bourbon but I am not a fan. It is way over priced for an lightly aged corn liquor. A 750 is close to $80.00. The nose is a strange floral perfume and the taste is week. My money is on the Kopper Kettle out of Virginia (which I have a glass of right now). Does any one know why Belmont Farms has decided to sell?

    Wow! I just check out the "Cask" web site. I bought my bottle of Baby Bourbon in Albany, NY for $38.00 and thought I paid to much. I can't believe "Cask" is selling it for $54.00. That is $108.00 a fifth. The GTS is only $84. Crazy.

    It's San Francisco. They sell my book for $28.95, whereas both Amazon and I sell it for $22.95.

    The difference is your book is worth it. Thanks the knowledge.

    I have to admit that it would be a lot of fun to open a small store that only sells craft and higher end offerings. Imagine SF may be the only place that could sustain such a place.

    Their craft whiskey offerings don't seem to be much better than any other good spirits store. I don't see any hard to find craft whiskies on the list.

    Sku,

    By the way, thank you for putting together the distiller list. It has guided me to some interesting finds.
