StateWays ■ ■ November/December 2015 48 O N T H E S H E L F CHAPPELLET 2012 PRITCHARD HILL SPECIAL PACKAGING Chappellet has released its 2012 Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon in new packaging. The redesign refl ects quality and the Chappellet family's three generations of history on Pritchard Hill, the company says. Inside the box, each bottle is wrapped in tissue printed with the original cartographer's survey notes of Pritchard Hill from the 1800s. The new packaging also includes a booklet detailing the history of Pritchard Hill and Chappellet. The suggested retail price of the 2012 Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is $150. $150 (750-ml.) CORAZON TEQUILA REDESIGN Corazon Tequila has unveiled new packaging that focuses on quality and craftsmanship, the company says.

All three spirits are 80 proof. $39.99 for a 750-ml. bottle of Corazon Anejo, $34.99 for Reposado and $29.99 for Blanco. THE GLENLIVET FOUNDER'S RESERVE The Glenlivet has announced Founder's Reserve, a tribute to its founder, George Smith. This new permanent expression in the brand's core range was created using distillation methods Smith introduced almost 200 years ago, according to the company. Selec- tive use of casks helped provide a smooth, creamy sweetness, the company says, with subtle fl avors and complex fruity tones. $44.99 (750-ml.) EGAN'S 10-YEAR-OLD SINGLE MALT P&H Egan Ltd. is reviving its Egan's Irish whiskey brand with Egan's 10-year-old Single Malt. Egan's Irish Whiskey dates back to 1852, when Patrick and Henry Egan founded P&H Egan. This pot-still Irish whiskey ages in oak casks and is non-chill fi ltered. Egan's 10 Year Old Single Malt is available in in Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and California. $49.99 (750-ml.) UV VODKA SALTY CARAMEL APPLE UV Vodka's has brought back its seasonal release, UV Salty Caramel Apple. This fl avored vodka is 30% ABV and available for a limited time this fall. It evokes the taste of a crisp orchard apple, dipped in caramel and capped with a salty bite, the company says. UV Vodka is made with all natural fl avors and distilled four times. $12.99 for a one-liter bottle, $11.99 for a 750-ml. bottle and $0.99 for a 50-ml. bottle. BOODLES MULBERRY GIN Boodles Mulberry is a London Dry Gin that pays homage to the popular mulberry tree that is seen throughout the English countryside, the company says. This mulberry gin will be available for a limited time this holiday season. The fl avor is mulberries with notes of raspberries and currants, the company says. $28.99 (750-ml.) VAN WINKLE BOURBON RELEASE The annual release of the Van Winkle bourbons began in November. Unfortunately, the company says, the angel's share was worse this year than in past, meaning lower whiskey yields in 2015. The collection consists of several whiskeys. Ranges from $49.99 to $249.99.
