Marooned on Hog Island Oyster Stout: Apparently they haven’t thought of everything when it comes to new beer ingredients. Fruit, chocolate, and pumpkin flavored beer–what else is there? San Francisco’s 21st Amendment Brewery has thought of another ingredient to add to their brews: oysters! It’s no secret that stout and oysters go perfectly together, but at 21st Amendment Brewery, they took that quite literally. They teamed up with Hog Island Oyster Company and brewed 450 pounds of Sweetwater oyster shells with their new beer called Marooned on Hog Island. It might sound fishy, but it’s a surprisingly well-balanced brew that won’t leave you tasting the sea.
Ink gin: This is no ordinary gin. Just like its name, this gin has a beautiful deep-ocean color—until you mix it with some tonic water. As soon as you pour a drop of gin’s best friend, your blue-colored drink will miraculously transform into a stunning violet hue. A father and his daughter teamed up to create this enchanted beverage. They came up with the idea to infuse gin with flower petals that are very sensitive to changes in pH levels. This way, the changes in color as soon as you add tonic are completely natural! No extra additives or scary synthetic substances to ruin this magical drinking experience.
Bold Rock Hard Cider IPA: Don’t be fooled by the name; this is no India Pale Ale. Bold Rock Hard Cider thinks they can catch the eyes of IPA-fanatics with their new India Pressed Apple Hard Cider, and it will definitely work! This delicious hopped cider is made with local crushed apples and carefully crafted to bring out floral and citrus aromas. And no need to wait! This IPA is now available in six packs.
Papa’s Pilar Rum: Papa’s Pilar rum just got even better. The winner of the 2013 Rum Awards, Papa’s Pilar has finally come out with their newest product: a limited edition dark rum double-aged in bourbon barrels. They take their fully aged, award-wining rum, and re-barrel it for an additional 120 days. Is it possible to make the winner of the Rum Awards even more delicious? We think so! It has an extreme smoothness along with Pilar’s signature scent of key lime. There’s also quite a bit of history to the Pilar brand as well. Named after Ernest Hemingway’s nickname and fishing boat, Papa’s Pilar has bottles that resemble a WWII canteen with a cap that looks like a compass. Once you buy one, make sure to keep the bottle, you can tell your friends it’s an antique!
Vintage Velvet Vodka: Think it might be too aggressive ordering a vodka on the rocks at the bar? Well, now is the time because this new bottle will put sipping vodka back on the map. Vintage Velvet is the first vodka flavored with real Chardonnay grapes. Suiting the tastes of wine and vodka drinkers alike, it has an intense smoothness from the first sip to the last.
