Bambooze Fine Wine and Liquor carries sundries and spirits for all manner of enthusiasts. They routinely stock their shelves with fine spirits such as the rare, crystal-clear Jack Daniels unaged rye, the High West rye whiskey collection, and Midnight Moon moonshine in flavors such as original corn whiskey and blueberry aged with real fruit. So as not to neglect appreciators of wines and beers, they also carry craft beers from breweries that include Dogfish Head and Bell’s Brewery as well as champagne from Moët & Chandon and Florida-crafted wines from Island Grove Wine Company.
The spirit stockpilers of Paradise Liquor amass a dizzying collection of hard-to-find craft beers, fine and novelty wines, and liquors. The helpful, friendly staff will pluck the ideal bottle of wine from the extensive vino collection to best complement light summer pastas and hors d'oeuvre trays. Seagram's Gin ($19.99/1.75 liter) injects juniper tones into any gimlet, whereas Canadian Mist whiskey warms up to small glasses of ice. Christen newborn ocean liners with a bottle of Evan Williams Black bourbon ($19.99/1.75 liter) or enliven sleepy knitting circles with a bottle of Smirnoff vodka ($19.99/1.75 liter). If a favorite libation cannot be located on the ample shelves of Paradise Liquor, sauce suppliers are happy to place a special order or guide discerning palettes toward an alternative intoxicant.
“Warning,” declares Taste’s menu, “you may get sick of reading the word ‘Homemade.’” Skim the sandwich section and you’ll see why. Chefs flavor their creations with numerous homemade ingredients such as thousand island sauce, pickled red onions, and rémoulade. They also use their own meat—rather than pre-made deli meats—and accompany sandwiches with homemade pickles and a choice of homemade chips or potato salad. Along with sandwiches, Taste’s culinary team also crafts gourmet salads and pairs graham crackers and jams with up to six local or imported cheeses from its cheese bar. To wash down meals, guests can choose from 16 beers, 24 wines by the glass, or wine by the bottle.
Whiffs of fruit and oak season the air in the Village of Baytowne Wharf during the annual Sandestin Wine Festival, a three-day event now in its 26th year. Vintners uncork more than 700 wines aged in America and abroad, including rare and specialty varietals parceled out during charity wine auctions. Novice tipplers learn basic wine styles and pairings as they explore the Grand Tasting and special events such as “Winemakers and Shakers,” which matches wines with gourmet meats and cheeses. As live music floats across the grounds, special lectures enlighten curious festivalgoers on topics such as biodynamic wines. New cooking demonstrations in the culinary tent include a Sunday session led by Stinky’s Fish Camp’s executive chef, Jim Richard, who will divulge the secrets of Spanish paella—a dish renowned for its compatibility with red wine, white wine, and grape-flavored Juicy Juice ($20 per demonstration). When guests empty their stemware, they can track down their favorite wines of the day in the onsite retail tent and take bottles home to savor and share.
