Calling a wine, beer or spirit “premium” is more a matter of taste than of cost. Certainly, the price of production comes into play. But in the end, a fruity, silky wine draws raves whether it is $20 or $50 a bottle.
Marsh looks for premium products in every category. Here are a few that draw consistent praise from our customers.
Chateau Ste. Michelle. The oldest winery in the state of Washington, Chateau Ste. Michelle offers a full range of wines. The leading producer of Riesling wine in North America, the company’s vineyards also produce award-winning Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet.
Robert Mondavi. A producer of popular premium wines, Robert Mondavi Winery had its first major success in 1968 with Fumé Blanc, or dry Sauvignon blanc. Other popular Napa Valley wines from Mondavi include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot.
Coppola. Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola struck gold with the Sonoma County, California, winery that bears his name. With a staggering number of offerings across nine lines of wine, Coppola wines serve a range of audiences. The consistently appealing Coppola wines carried by Marsh Supermarkets are offered in most popular varietals.
Miller Fortune. An un-distilled, spirited golden lager with a rich, balanced taste, Fortune has an alcohol content of 6.9 percent by volume.
Budweiser Black Crown. With its clean taste and high drinkability, Black Crown features more body, color and hop character than Budweiser’s flagship lager.
Bud Light Platinum. This beer retains the key characteristics of Bud Light—it’s refreshing and drinkable—with a slightly sweeter taste.
Jack Daniel’s. In business for more than a century, the Jack Daniel Distillery produces a line of traditional whiskeys, including Gentleman Jack Rare Tennessee Whiskey and Original Recipe Tennessee Honey liqueur.
Maker’s Mark. Based in Kentucky, the company has been making bourbon whisky since 1954. In addition to their standard bourbon formula they also offer Maker’s 46 Bourbon Whisky, which is barrel-aged longer for a bolder, more complex taste.
Smirnoff. A best-selling vodka in the U.S. for decades, Smirnoff has been produced in Russia since the 1860s. Flavored vodka isn’t the rage it was a few years ago, yet, flavors such as Smirnoff Sorbet Light Raspberry Pomegranate are still finding many takers.
