The DIA team is a group of cocktail fanatics. We strive to try ‘em all. We even attempt to make some of the concoctions ourselves (which 75% of the time ends up as a giant fail). We kept thinking- there has to be an easier way to make great, high-end cocktails at home without having to run all over town getting odd ingredients and following crazy, complicated instructions.

According to us, these are the best booze campaigns of all time.

Gold: Dos Equis “The Most Interesting Man In The World” Campaign
The copy is *kisses fingers like an Italian chef* perfection. The grainy visuals are a thing of beauty. And the idea became a meme for God sakes. If that doesn’t scream “success” we don’t know what does.

Folks. Every now and then, we at DIA get to experience the utter delight of sampling an inspiring spirit. A liquid so flavorful and real that you begin to questions you own identity. Often times, stuff people give us for free is slightly underwhelming. So, when something outstanding walks through our doors, we cherish it. Today, the something outstanding we’re talking about is Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. For you non-Spanish speakers, that’s code for super authentic rum.

Good news for fans of Irish whiskey: P&H Egan Ltd. has revived its celebrated Egan’s Irish Whiskey after its fifty years of riding the bench. A super premium Irish single malt whiskey, Egan’s vintage brand sets it apart from the many traditional whiskeys that have hit the market recently. Aged for ten years in oak casks, Egan’s Single Malt 100% pot-still Irish whiskey is hand-selected by members of the Egan family.

The days are getting longer, the temperature is rising, and with every passing day, we’re getting closer to the dog days of summer. Late nights of dancing on tables and ripping tequila shots may be behind you (or maybe they’re not), but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to your adventurous side. Enter Soltado, the spicy tequila that will add even more heat to your summer drinking habit. Made in the lowlands of Juanacatlan, Mexico, Soltado is distilled using a top-secret process by a co-op distillery run by 80 farmers and their families. We’ve heard it’s fierce and it’s bold, but we got our hands on a bottle to see for ourselves.
