Refugees from a forgotten church, saints in stained glass windows peer over the adjacent barrel room, which includes its own Victorian pulpit (perfect for delivering toasts). Sculpted by Vittorio Caradossi, a marble sea nymph graces an alcove in the tasting room. Nicknamed “Last Call” by Berghold, an imposing whiskey cabinet boasts the carved wooden doors of a 1913 Cadillac hearse.
