Hangar One Vodkas and Anchor Junipero Gin.

We're happy to announce that we've finally made good on one of our long-standing promises and acquired bottles of an earth-shatteringly good vodka from the East Bay (Alameda, specifically), Hangar One, in both the regular and Kaffir Lime varieties. It's a true artisanal vodka, which really shows up in the subtle, complex flavors.

Another new Bay Area addition is Anchor's Junipero Gin, which has garnered all kinds of praise for being one of the best American gins available. Eric Asimov from the New York Times:

“Smooth, clean and very dry with assertive, classic flavors of juniper and citrus: a martini with one eyebrow raised."

Come by and try one of these spirits; they both stand up amazingly by themselves, or in a well-mixed cocktail (we're developing a new list including these two, and the Rogue rums we got in stock a few weeks ago).
