Brothers Vilgalys Spirits started in 2012 to bring Krupnikas, a traditional Lithuanian style of Spiced Honey Liqueur, to the American market. Their Krupnikas has a delicious and complex flavor unlike any other spirit or liqueur. It is smooth enough to sip on its own, starting out with sweet honey flavors that build to a warm spicy finish. In 2015, Brothers Vilgalys released four new liqueurs called Zaphod, Beebop, Beatnik, and Jabberwock. All four at 60 proof, sweetened with raw cane sugar, and flavored with whole botanicals, herbs, and spices. All of the Brothers Vilgalys magic happens out of a small production space in downtown Durham, NC.

The Country Squire Winery’s Tartan Tasting Room & Gift Shop is a wonderful addition to The Country Squire, open to visitors from Tuesday to Saturday. Many of the wines at The Country Squire are named after favorite areas at the Squire and the wine label design is reflective of the owner’s Scottish heritage.

The Rock of Ages Winery & Vineyard is located in North Carolina’s southern Person County on the Moore family estate where tobacco was grown for generations. Communion wine was also produced on this land by Ernest Moore for area churches in the early 1900s. Now, his grandson, Kevin Moore and his wife, Kimberly, are carrying on that tradition as they are…”blending the old into the new.” Visit the winery and enjoy wine tasting’s, tours, special events, concerts or just a leisurely afternoon overlooking the vineyard and lake.
