Bourbon whiskey was born in the backwoods of present day Kentucky. The production of whiskey quickly expanded across the US and gave rise to similar spirits like Rye, Single Malt, and other American whiskies. Although American whiskey has gone through tough times such as Prohibition, today it is one of the fastest growing categories in the spirits world.

We can never get enough of the pink bubbles from Billecart-Salmon or Laurent Perrier. We think a Tuesday afternoon is enough of a special occasion to warrant popping the cork on a bottle of Forest Marie Blanc de Blancs and that Sunday evenings call for something special, like a bottle of Krug.

The spirits were so harsh that other liqueurs and flavors needed to be added to make the drinks palatable for the patrons. We have come a long way from the simple Martini and Manhattan, two of the first popular cocktails. The market is now abundant with a variety of sweet and fruity liqueurs, vermouths, aperitifs, amaros and other bitters. These are not the foundation of the cocktail but rather the elements that give the cocktail balance, complexity, and interest.

The world of Tequila is almost exploding with small batch bottlings that show off the pure flavor of the agave plant. Gin's are not just for tonic anymore and vodka, well the galaxy of new, lovingly made vodkas can just take your breath away. At D&M we specialize in a few things, champagne, single malt scotch, French brandies and fine California wines, but what we really like is quality.
read moreWe take wine very seriously at D&M. Only wines that we endorse are featured in our store. The staff blind tastes over 2000 wines per year, and if they don't like it, it doesn't come in. We are always gratified when Robert Parker or The Wine Spectator seconds our opinion, of course, but we are never ruled by their ratings. You will see that our focus is on fine California wines. That's only natural; we live in San Francisco, just forty minutes from the Napa Valley. We are privileged to know more than a few growers and producers.
