From Candy Bar to Salted Caramel, these flavored vodkas are great for Halloween cocktails. For more fall themed treats, check out our 13 Days of Halloween.

Bobbing For Apples

Tagged:

It’s an age old Halloween tradition: bobbing for apples. This year, we’re bobbing for Pinnacle’s latest vodka flavor, Pinnacle Caramel Apple Vodka. You’ll be surprised at how much it tastes like an actual caramel apple. Try it alone or with one of these sweet cocktails. If vodka doesn’t appeal to you, try one of these other festive treats!

Binny’s in Evergreen Park: Peek Inside

Tagged:

 

Progress! Construction is happening right now on the upcoming Binny’s Beverage Depot location in Evergreen Park. You already know the stats – it’s shaping up to be 24,000 square feet of beverage superstore, including a 28 door beer cooler, temperature-controlled rare and fine wine cellar, walk-in humidor and more wine, spirits and beer than the human mind can actually conceive. It isn’t much right now, just a construction zone, but watch for the store to open in late November, and watch this space for more soon.

 

It’s all going in the former location of Bleeker’s Bowling Lanes. We think it’s cool to preserve the neighborhood landmark. Just wait until you see the space… check out the pics after the jump.

 

By the way, we’re getting a lot of questions about jobs at the new location. If you’re in the market, be sure to check out our careers page, where you’ll find instructions and a link where you can apply for jobs.

Whiskey Hotline: Rollin’ In

From the most recent edition of the Whiskey Hotline, What’s Rollin’ In!

 

 

The Only One I Love
With a name like Yellow Rose, you know it’s from Maine. Just kidding. Yellow Rose is the first legal distillery in Houston, and they’re all about extremes. Take their Outlaw Bourbon. Their secret mashbill recipe? 97% corn, despite what their website says. The Straight Rye? 95% rye. Our favorite is their Double Barrel – a bourbon that sees finishing time in cabernet barrels for six months. They first caught Brett’s eye while he was judging at the American Distilling Institute 2013 competition. Only a matter of time before they hit the shelves at Binny’s.

How does that old saying go? “Beer before liquor?” Ballast Point proves that’s bunk by following their knockout beers with exceptional spirits, coming soon. We got a sneak preview of their delicious rums and phenomenal gin a few months ago, when their beers first hit Chicago. And we’re hoping that someday we can get their whiskey too.
