Sure, You’ve Got a Wine Cellar. What About a Whiskey Lounge, or a Tequila-Tasting Room?

This week, The Wall Street Journal’s Mansion section is rolling out stories from our special food and wine issue. Check out stories like this one on chef Gavin Kaysen’s not-so-professional home kitchen, restaurateur Daniel Alonso’s Chicago house and more.

Raja Amar’s 23-acre estate in Stony Point, N.Y., has plenty of places to enjoy a cocktail. Visitors can choose a bottle from his glass-enclosed custom wine cellar, which holds about $2 million worth of wine from Opus One, Screaming Eagle and other pricey wineries. They can sample it at a table in the wine-tasting room just outside. They can pour a Macallan 25 at the bar and sip it in the whiskey-and-cigar lounge, a cherry wood-paneled room with two commercial-grade smoke eaters.
