Confessions of a Mixologist: Mezcal Old Fashioned

Tagged:

The Old Fashioned is a cocktail staple and has stayed the most consistent since its origin compared to other long-standing cocktails. In the early 1800’s when the word “cocktail” was defined as a “potent concoction of spirits, bitters, water and sugar,” the Old Fashioned was called a bittered sling. The only slight change we’ve seen over the past 200 years or so is the popular switch from rye whiskey to bourbon. And now – Mezcal. We’re adding the smoke to this popular classic.

Whiskey Hotline: Papa’s Pilar

Tagged:

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.

Three Little Handpicked Pigs

Tagged:

I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll drink your rye down! Maybe no huffing or puffing, but I’ll definitely drink any of these new Whistle Pig barrels. These three little pigs, as we call them, are explosive and intriguing. Made from 100% rye, they’re big and sturdy like a house made of bricks, and will stand up to any big bad wolf.

Confessions of a Mixologist: GoldenEye

Tagged:

Blackwell Rum is one of our new favorite Jamaican rums to hit the shelf. It has a light body, but carries a strong kick of tropical flavors. The ginger beer adds a refreshing spice to the sweet flavors in the rum. Protip – let the pineapple soak in the rum before using as a garnish.

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.

It’s time to celebrate America’s first love, rum. Distilled in the colonies as early as the 1660’s, this spirit was so popular that distillers followed just behind the front lines in the Revolutionary War, catering to thirsty soldiers. Back then, it is estimated that the average Americans drank 13.64 liters of rum every year.
