Papa is Ernest Hemingway, and Pilar is his boat. Famous for his writing, Hemingway was just as prolific at exploring, hunting and fishing. Papa’s Pilar is the perfect sidekick for any adventure. This is worldly rum, aged in a unique solera system with French, Port, bourbon and Spanish wine barrels, sourced from the Caribbean, Florida, and Central America. Top to bottom, these are all wonderfully complex rums.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Whiskey Acres Distilling Co.

Tagged:

Whiskey Acres Distilling Co., our new friends from Dekalb don’t have to go very far for their corn and wheat. Their tagline, “from seed to spirit,” says it all. They grow all of their grain on the farm and then use it to make their whiskey. We can’t lie – it’s pretty delicious. We have also waited patiently and their farm to glass bourbon is finally here! Whiskey Acres uses wheat as a secondary grain which helps create a softer, more rounded spirit. It’s great on a rock or mixed into your favorite cocktail.

Hibiki 12 Year Whisky

Tagged:

Just as their popularity is skyrocketing in the West, Japanese whiskies are becoming scarce. Like their Scottish counterparts, age statements are disappearing from some Japanese bottlings, giving the distilleries more flexibility as they wait for aging stocks to mature. Which is why we had to jump at the chance to grab the last few cases in the US of Suntory’s masterful Hibiki 12-year-old.
