Smooth and warm, Richard Hennessy Cognac is a complex yet balanced blend of spices, fruits, and walnuts. It is aromatically rich and full-bodied in taste. Bottled in handcrafted baccarat crystal, the cognac is a modern celebration of a classic sip that dates back to the 1700s. Price: $1,500.
Toast American Summers
From the makers of Hampton’s Vodka comes a super-premium, award-winning American gin fresh and light with hints of citrus. Distilled from 100% yellow corn, the 94 proof London Extra Dry spirit is poured into hand-decorated bottles–no two are alike. Price: $30.
A Rich Harvest
Chateau Mouton Rothschild’s wines are aged from a high-quality crop on 193 acres in the Pauillac region of France.

Each bottle features an image of the “Augsburg Ram,” a 16th century silver-gilt drinking vessel and the Mouton emblem. Price: $300.
