Sherry is a wildly underrated beverage with a history beyond the Cream stuff that grandma drinks. Through 9 wines you’ll taste styles that span the range from dry, bright, and lively to deep and savory to luxuriously sweet. Learn about the flavors and wines unique to the region of Jerez and why Sherry is seeing a resurgence in some of America’s finest restaurants.

This is certainly a small group tasting for a curious mind and an adventurous palate.

Different Tasting Formats for Different Occasions

 

We love wine tastings. What better opportunity to sample different wines with all of our favorite people (that’s you guys). As we schedule our tastings we’ll send the information out in our biweekly email and update our website so that you know what is going on. We aim to suit different needs for different occasions, both formal and casual, so read below to learn more. 

 

Wine Samplings: Every Friday 3-6pm at the Cheese Department

Cost: Free!

Join us as we have at least 2 wines paired with 2 cheeses to sample!  

 

The Friday Night Casual Tasting: Various Fridays 7-9pm (No Reservations Required)

Cost: Usually $10 – $15 / Person Depending on the Event

This tasting usually features a particular grape, region, or style. The arrival time is flexible and you’re welcome to casually taste through the wines at your own pace, and these events are done in a stand-up format. You are also welcome to ask as many, or as few, questions as you please. This tasting is about enjoying wine, maybe learning a little, and having a good time.

 

The Seminar Style Tasting: Dates Vary, Typically 7-9pm (Reservations Required, 30 – 45 person limit depending on the event)

Cost: Usually $10 – $30 / Person Depending on the Event

Tasting wine isn’t just fun, it’s educational! These seated tastings usually feature a winemaker, an importer, or some one with particular knowledge on the subject at hand who can lead us through a selection of wines that best illustrates their story.

 

The Small Group Classroom Tastings: Dates Vary – Can Be Scheduled as a Private Event, Typically 7-8:30 (Reservations Required, 8 – 12 person limit depending on the event)

Cost: Usually $30 / Person Depending on the Event (As an added bonus attendees will receive a 20% discount on any wine they care to buy the evening of the event.)

Recurring Tastings: These seated tastings use the same wines each time (unless otherwise noted) because of the small group format.   

Wine 101: The Elements of Wine

We taste through eight wines blind (four flights of wine, two wines per flight) to better understand the role of acid, oak, and tannin in red and white wine. We discuss wine vocabulary & terms, misconceptions, impressions, and anything else that comes to mind.

Wine 201: Get to Know a Region / Grape

Taste through a selection of wines (6 – 9 depending on the theme) to better understand a particular wine-making region or grape.

State Line Liquors Rated #3 Bottle Shop in the WORLD!

Max's Taphouse (J.M. Giordano / February 14, 2015)

Max’s Taphouse (J.M. Giordano / February 14, 2015)

Feb. 17, 2015 –By Steve Fogelman, City Paper. “Last month, just two establishments in Maryland were honored as “Top Places to Have a Beer in the World” by the crowd-sourced RateBeer.com annual survey. Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore and State Line Liquors in Elkton made the cut, which makes sense, as both are hallowed Free State beer grounds for aficionados. I caught up with the owners of both businesses by phone while they were coincidentally on separate and simultaneous vacations in Florida earlier this month. The traits these businesses share, such as family and dedication to the craft scene, are the underpinnings of their success… READ the FULL ARTICLE at:

What is a “Tap Social?”

Well, a Tap Social is similar to a “Rep Tasting”… a casual get-together for sampling beers from a single brewery and are generally held on Friday afternoons from 5pm to 7pm.  Most of the time we charge a nominal fee to “participate” in this 2 hour social. For that fee, you usually get a free glass along with unlimited sampling! The beers are generously discounted and often the reps will have giveaways on top of it!

The Best Spirits And Cocktails For 2018

Here’s an article recently published in Forbes by Adam Morganstern where he talks with people in the beverage industry, asking them to name their picks for what to drink in 2018.  What will your new favorite turn out to be???  

 

State Line’s Selected Single Barrels:

 

Rhum Clement Cask Collection Vieux    $36.99  750ml

This rum hails from the French Caribbean island of Martinique in the Lesser Antilles. The French government oversees the production of Rhum Agricole which is produced from sugar cane juice that is pressed within three days of harvest in the dry season, This produces a dryer style rum with complex grassy and herbal flavors. This is a barrel we selected last winter that was bottled in July and it has just arrived!

Four Rose’s, State Line Barrel of OBSQ   $64.99

9 Year & 10 Month Old Barrel Strength Bourbon

This is first Four Rose’s barrel this year and it yielded 156 bottles for us and 111 for the Angels. The OBSQ mashbill consists of 60% corn, 35% rye and 5% malted barley and the yeast strain used creates a bourbon with floral, aromatic fruitiness. The high Rye content adds spice and intensity to the flavor and has been bottled undiluted at 55.8% alcohol. This bourbon really explodes with spicy flavor with the addition of a little water to open it up, without any dilution flavor or intensity!

 

Crown Royal Single Barrel  $54.99  750ml  

This is a Coffey Rye Whiskey from a Coffey still that is among the finest components of Crown Royal and bottled at 103 proof to maintain its richness and body. This is the finest expression of Crown Royal we have ever had in the store!!

Two Barrels From FEW Distillery!

FEW Distillery is based in Evanston, IL, a suburb of Chicago that was once an international headquarters for the temperance movement headed by Francis Elizabeth Willard (FEW).
FEW Spirits is a craft distillery making whiskies and gins from locally grown grains and other ingredients sourced as close to home as possible, including Cascade hops grown in master distiller and owner Paul Hletko’s own backyard.
FEW Rye Whiskey was named Whisky Advocates Craft Whiskey of the Year in 2013 and its Bourbon Whiskey and Barrel Gin were both awarded gold medals by Beverage Testing Institute.

Bourbon Whiskey 60.05 %ABV Batch 15-56   $66.99

Spicy, nutty nose, soft caramel and toffee.  Bright butterscotch, toasty cinnamon, faint bittersweet chocolate, and a lingering, sweetish finish.

Rye Whiskey 60%ABV Batch 15-56   $79.99

Distinctive spicy rye presence on the nose, citrus peel, piney oak, which carry through with significant depth mid palate.  Lingering spicy sweet finish.
