Uncut and unfiltered, this robust bourbon whiskey ages for nearly a decade and boasts the bold character that is reminiscent of the man himself.

Booker's 25th Anniversary Bourbon

Booker's 25th Aniversary Bourbon at St. Marks Wine and Liquor

25th-anniversary edition of Booker's, made with special barrels that Jim Beam master distiller Fred Noe set aside several years ago.

"These are some 10-year-old barrels laid down from the last bourbon Dad made before he passed away," Noe said. "I have the final say, so if you don't like it, blame Fred. The one thing Dad told me before he died was, 'Take care of my Booker's.'"

Booker Noe died in February 2004.

This, the special edition was hand selected and bottled unfiltered and uncut, at high proof.


Old Blowhard Orphan Barrel Barterhouse 20 Year Old


Orphan Barrel Barterhouse 20 Year Old at St. Marks Wine and Liquor

The goal of The Orphan BarrelWhiskey Distilling Company is to locate lost and forgotten barrels of whiskey from around the world and share them with discerning adult fans.  The first variant to be released from the company is the 20-year-old Barterhouse Whiskey. This whiskey is under strict allocation due to limited supply. We have several bottles in stock, as of April 4th, 2014.

Barterhouse Whiskey stocks were discovered in old warehouses at the Stitzel-Weller facility in Louisville, Ky.  The nose of this beautiful whiskey is soft and reminiscent of warm spice, biscuit and buttercream.  The whiskey's mellow taste includes notes of roasted grain, charred oak and a brown sugar finish.  Barterhouse Whiskey is bottled in Tullahoma, Tenn.


Doc's Absinthe

Doc's absinthe is the first absinthe produced in Brooklyn.  The process begins by fermenting Spelt and Malted Barley.  10 different botanicals are used, including wormwood and grand wormwood.  The distillate also includes anise, lemon, fennel, lemon peel, licorice root, hyssop, peppermint and mint.  Although some may find old-world absinthes to be overpowering, Doc's is a softer, more approachable spirit with softer anise notes.  We welcome Doc's to the New York distilling scene!

St. Marks Wine and Liquor offers Doc's in 375 ml bottles.
