We have a rare collection of scotches and armagnacs.
Mooo’s cocktail list impresses with some of the rarest liquors you’ll find in the States. Check out the British Royal Navy Rum for $325 a pour. The early-19th-century rum was lost while being shipped to England for the royal family. It was later salvaged from a sunken ship and assumed to be Jamaican rum. The Glenlivet Royal Wedding Reserve is $185 a pour. This scotch is a blend of 25-year-old whiskeys distilled by George and J.G. Smith to commemorate the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. The ultimate pour comes courtesy of an Antoine Hardy & Cie, "Perfection Cognac," priced at $900 a pour. The cognac is blended from inventory accumulated during the 1860s after phylloxera, a root-eating louse, destroyed nearly all the vines of France. There is no other known cognac dating to pre-phyll times, which makes this bottle of cognac one of the rarest — and most precious — in the world.
