Thanks to cheap January flights, I avoided the snow fall and showers this past weekend down in sunny South Carolina! Since we’ve carried High Wire Distilling Company for a few months now, I knew I had to try their lineup from the source itself in their warehouse in North Charleston. All of their spirits are great, but I have to say that their sorghum and millet whiskeys were my clear favorites. Distilled from sorghum grown on a Mennonite farm in Tennessee, the whiskey is sweet on the palate with a surprisingly balanced finish for such a traditionally sweet grain. Its fragrant nose gives way to notes of vanilla bean and maple syrup. If you’re tired of the Kentucky stuff, grab yourself a bottle of this and enjoy it neat or replace your favorite rye with this in your Manhattan!

What People Are Saying
I’ve lived on the UWS for 20+ years and long ago had pledged my allegiance to one of the old stalwart liquor stores in the neighborhood. But something made we want to give Amsterdam Wine Co a shot. I did…. and I’ve never looked back. Great selection, great prices and amazing service. It’s my new “go-to.”
- Jason C.
I like wine but I don’t have the budget to drink great wines as often as I’d like. The selection at Amsterdam Wine Co. is so well chosen that I feel like I’m always drinking above my means. Great addition to the neighborhood.
- Rachel R.
There are lots of wine stores in the neighborhood and if you tend to drink the same kinds of wine all the time, there are other stores that might be more to your liking. But if you want to explore the world of wine – really get to know the multitude of wine regions and get exposed to different grapes and truly small, artisanal producers – Amsterdam Wine Co can take you on an amazing journey. Thank you, Amsterdam!
