Caribou Crossing Single Barrel Canadian Whisky

Tagged:

In another Whiskey Hotline first, we’re proud to announce our handpicked casks of Caribou Crossing. When this single barrel Canadian whisky debuted a few years back, it quickly became one of our favorites in the category. A Canadian whisky for the bourbon drinker, slightly fuller bodied than others with firm rye spice notes and a heavy dose of vanilla. Our single casks bring out the best of these flavors. Both are delicate and elegant, easy drinking and well structured, quality Canadian whiskies.

News From The Gin Hotline

Tagged:

When it comes to summer cocktails, nothing quite beats gin. Crisp, complex, and refreshing, gin is an adaptable spirit showcasing a broad range of flavors: from citrus to pine to spice and many others. Just as versatile as vodka, with the added bonus that it isn’t vodka, gin is the perfect cocktail base to beat the heat. Here are some of our local favorites in this week’s Whiskey Gin Hotline.

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.
