    Sipping Gin and Drier Amaro made by the Bay's OG in craft distilling

    Farid is one of the Bay Areas's original distillers, and he started doing small batch gin before those terms were ever even strung together in a sentence.  His gin is produced in batches with fewer than 300 at his Falcon Spirits distillery in Richmond California. From start to finish the production take a month, during which he actually uses a proprietary method of vapor infusion as he produces his gin.  That method helps capture aromas with the least amount of impurity.  The 100% grain spirit is six times distilled and carbon filtered, which creates a lighter bodied, very botanically balanced sipper.

    The first female founded Scotch company nails delicious, affordable whisky


    Like snowflakes, no two spirits are the same, and no two founding stories are either.  Sia's is particularly unique.  
    She was going through a break-up and began exploring her local whiskey shop as a new hobby.  It didn't take long for her to develop a passion and a palate for great Scotch, but she felt there was a hole in the market for great, affordable blended Scotch.  Necessity is the Mother of invention, and Carin Luna-Ostaseski, Sia's founder, had found her need.
    Newly single, she realized she was not at all alone. Droves of people shared her need.  So she did what every 21st century entrepreneur wants to do, but rarely pulls off: crowd funded her first barrel of Whisky.  And with that, she became the first woman to start a Scotch company.

    B+B Team picks, SF Summer Edition: Bottles so good they barely make it to the floor

    We get new arrivals weekly, and deciding which one to take home is as hard for us as it is for you. This summer there have been dozens of new arrivals, and we've loved them all.

    Occasionally, though there are bottles that struggle to make it to the floor because so many of our Bitters + Bottles team stock their home bar with them first.  We save the limited edition whiskey for y'all.  The bottles we tend to covet are the flavor packed cocktail workhorses whose cocktail possibilities are limitless.

    Engagement Lemonade Recipe - a not so modest proposal for a swift knee drop

    If you’re familiar with “engagement chicken”—the roast chicken recipe that continues to take certain corners of the internet by storm (it’s so good, allegedly, that it guarantees a marriage proposal)—you’ll recognize the flavor profile here, because this is its cocktail counterpart. A quencher to serve up or over rocks for summer’s final few weeks, it’s super easy to make, and also incredibly tasty and impressive. *Someone* will end up on their knee(s).
