Heading to the lake? Just back from the beach? Summer barbecue coming up? Enjoy watching the dragonflies buzzing around the back garden with a drink in hand?
We've put together a collection of new spirits that are perfect for all of these moments. They're not in-your-face, shout-about-it bottles. They don't have to be. Instead, they're the quiet, confident, top-quality companions that are the perfect accompaniment to the way you already enjoy spending your time.
|A gin for moments of connection and camaraderie. Southern hospitality in a bottle. No corner-cutting here, each batch is hand-crafted, with many of the botanicals locally sourced and always processed by hand.|
|A single malt from one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland, located 208 steps from the sea. Balanced and complex, an entirely new and exceptional spirit from the house that brings you their flagship 14 year. It's a winner.|
|A no-nonsense bottle of vodka from St. George Spirits, often acknowledged as the spirits house that kicked off the craft spirits movement. This vodka is the perfect utility player: clean and pure, with mild fruity & floral flavors.|
|Accept no substitutes. This maraschino liqueur bests all the rest. It's a true classic, from the Italian masters. Invest in a bottle helps unlock that magic something that keeps people sipping -- whether that's in classic cocktails or the more experimental.|
|This reposado will make you reconsider what you know of tequila. It ages longer than the typical reposado, which gives it the sweet and complex agave-forward flavor its known for. From a fifth generation Jalisco family, and the very well-respected La Alteña Distillery.|
|Cult favorite The Real McCoy rums come from legendary Foursquare Distillery, in Barbados. The limited edition 14 year was parallel aged in both ex-Madeira and American oak bourbon barrels. Only 6000 of these were ever made - we're lucky to be able to offer a few of them to you!|
|Corsair is known for its playful and experimental approach to American whiskey. This is a particularly distinctive bottle that whiskey enthusiasts are keen to get their hands on. A chocolatey, espresso-y, rich and smokey experience.|
Take me away to Rio. Avua is helping reinvent cachaça, one expression at a time. This sugarcane-based Brazilian "rum" is aged up to two years in carvahlo barrels (French oak, previously used to white wine) that imbue it with its signature vanilla and butterscotch notes.
|This distinctive amaro is a sure sign that you know what's up behind the counter. It has an intensely bitter and herbaceous flavor, sharp and minty. For as popular as amaros are, this is one style that's still a bit of a best-kept secret. It's also one of the (numerous) reasons we love the Italians.|
