    Leopold Bros. - A cocktailer's dream distillery

    We’ve all got favorite bottles but Leopold is one of our favorite spirits brands. They span the gamut of whiskey, gin, and liqueurs, and yet despite their breadth of selection, each spirit maintains an exceptional amount of depth.  As much as they are all delightful sippers, they are really a bartender's best friend, adding complexity, balance, and most importantly deliciousness to every cocktail.

    Leopold Bros. is a family owned and operated distillery in Denver, Colorado. They malt their barley, mill their grains, ferment their mash and distill everything onsite. They don’t add artificial ingredients and they barrel and bottle everything by hand.

    Richland Rum - A surprising new arrival from Georgia

    Made from Single Estate grown Georgia sugar cane, Richland Rum, creates a field to glass rum by keeping every step of the process in house. After growing their sugar cane with sustainable farming practices in rich, loamy soils that lend their unique terroir, a 100%, unrefined, pure sugar cane syrup is made in enormous cast iron kettles. After fermenting into a syrup wine of 13% ABV, it is copper pot distilled, with only the finest parts reserved for aging. The rum is then aged in virgin Wisconsin white oak barrels for a minimum of 4 years, with each bottling containing unique characteristics inherited from its single barrel.

    Heaven Hill Rye: Speaking Proof to Power Your Cocktails

    Heaven Hill is the last major Kentucky distillery still run as an independent and family-owned business. They've filled over 7 million barrels of bourbon since prohibition, and right this second they have 1,000,000 barrels of whiskey aging at their facility.  They say this accounts for over 17% of the world's future supply of Bourbon. If the small craft distilleries are the new friends that lend variety and give the spice of life, then Heaven Hill is Mom and Dad; they've always been cool even if you didn't know it, will always be there, and you appreciate them more with age.

    Mosswood Batch #4: Not to be Missed Newest Tasty Limited Edition Local Whiskey

    We've spent 4 years trying thousands of spirits as we've curated our shop's collection of delicious spirits.  In that time, we've fallen in love more than a few times.

    Sometimes the relationship is situational, great for good time party but maybe not our Sunday night sweatpants Netflix and chill date. Then sometimes we find producers who we think of as the always there for you best friend: safe yet fun to introduce to Mom and Dad, but also a great companion for a night out or in.  The perfect partner that's been hiding in plain sight (we've watched a lot of rom-coms lately, clearly).

    Wired's Must Read Piece on Silicon Valley's Favorite Craft Distiller

    You know when someone from your small hometown goes out and does something big and makes something of themselves?  And you are like, "Oh my gosh! I know them! Good for them!"  

    That is exactly how we felt when we saw Bryan and Joanne of Lost Spirits Distillery featured in a big glossy spread in Wired (print and online).  Sure they aren't country bumpkins, but they are scrappy booze nerds, and for that, it feels we are kindred spirits from the same tiny zip code.

    Paloma Springs - What the locals drink after Coachella leaves town

    This spicy, smoky take on a Paloma is our go to poolside drink.  As we sip the Paloma Springs, we imagine ourselves under a palm tree, adjacent to a flat roofed, mid-century modern home.  It feels like that with this cocktail in hand, but maybe it looks a bit more like dipping our feet in a kiddie pool on the roof as the city screeches by below.
