It’s Spirit(ual)

850+ Spirits. 450+ Whiskies. 350+ Wines.

You could call the Bank of Wine and Spirits the grown-up, luxury candy store for imbibing adults.  Walk into the historic Bank of America building in San Francisco’s Financial District and gaze at the Carrara marble floor to gold leaf ceiling hardwood cabinets set aglow with bottles – everything from Kistler’s single vineyard Chardonnays to Kilchoman Single Malt Scotch – and you want to taste it all. Where do you start? 

This national historic landmark in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District on the corner of Montgomery and Clay Streets in the shadow of the iconic Transamerica Building is a fitting space for beverage maven Kyle Nadeau’s studied selection of spirits, wine, and Champagne.

He has put together the deepest whisky selection in the city (450+), along with other libations – barrel-aged Gins, Cognac, Calvados, Champagne, and, of course, wine – all that is ripe for discovery yet utterly essential for the more serious connoisseur of good hooch.

With 850+ spirits and 350+ wines in stock, visitors are encouraged to explore their palates well beyond the brown stuff. Tap into your inner spirits geek and pick up a bottle of Adrien Camut 6-year-old Calvados, beef up your wine cellar with some perfect provenance 2000 Leoville Las Cases, or venture beyond the standard 

Tequila with some extremely limited Mezcal Vago ‘Cuixe.’ Chances are, whatever you’re seeking, or didn’t know you were looking for, the Bank of Wine & Spirits’ team knows its flavor profile, its story, or has visited the distillery (or in many cases walked the peat bogs that birthed it).
