Sometimes you just need to go Old School. Don’t get me wrong: I’ll experiment with any new whiskey that shows up on the shelf, but there’s something to be said for a classic Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. With a history going back nearly 200 years and a mashbill of 75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% malted barley, you can give your hip, new-fangled distilled spirits a break. Coming in at 94 proof (47%) this whiskey is exactly what the doctor ordered: plenty of oak and spice on the nose, with a powerful dose of spice on the palate. And it makes a killer bourbon Manhattan, making it an essential to your liquor cabinet. Take two ounces of Elijah Craig, half an ounce of your best sweet vermouth, two dashes of bitters, throw in a cherry, and call me in the morning.

What People Are Saying
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.

After spending most of my nights selling wine to locals and tourists alike, it’s a relief to be able to walk into a local wine store that can give back that same level of attention and passion. Amsterdam Wine Co. will always be my go to spot on the Upper West Side for a great conversation and that perfect bottle of wine.

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.”
