pbj_old_fashioned_tDo you ever find yourself getting bored with your go-to booze? When you’ve grown tired of that mundane drink order, we’ll be here to walk you through what’s new and noteworthy this week:

Earl Grey Breakfast Gin

Pouring yourself some gin early in the morning might worry some of your friends, but who can judge when it’s Earl Grey gin? Created by Few Spirits, this breakfast gin is infused with Earl Grey botanicals, and it is perfectly appropriate for the a.m. So, at your next boozy brunch don’t rush over to the Mimosas and Bloody Marys. Sip on some citrusy gin tea, which will be sure to wake you right up.

Booker’s Bluegrass Bourbon

Calling all bourbon and bluegrass lovers. Booker’s Bourbon has proudly announced the launch of their 2016 batch: Booker’s Bluegrass. This very special collection is one of the few ultra-premium bourbons that is unfiltered. You will still be able to smell the wood from the barrels before you even taste it. Each bottle in this collection will have a one-of-a-kind label. In honor of the founder, Booker Noe, each label will feature a look inside Booker’s life. So, if you’re a avid bourbon drinker just like Booker, you must have a taste. Aged for almost seven years, this batch ensures a full-bodied flavor that will make you feel like you’re in the south listening to some Kentucky bluegrass.

Liquid Riot’s Fernet Michaud

Whenever you have a huge dinner, it’s always nice to wash it down with some post-meal liqueur. Next time you think you won’t ever be able to move from the dinner table, try Liquid Riot’s Fernet Michaud, their new addition of Amaro Herb Bitters. You can sip it or mix it, and its old-fashioned, wax-like label makes it seem like its been in your family for 100 years. With a minty and smooth finish, this unique fernet will leave you completely satisfied after a huge, debilitating feast.

PB & J Old Fashioned

Let’s face it, peanut butter and jelly were meant for each other. But after seeing Firebox’s new spirit, we might just add bourbon into the mix. Introducing Peanut Butter and Jam Old Fashioned. Made with two of our favorite things, this bottle combines PB & Js and bourbon to create this incredibly smooth beverage. If you’re super picky about your type of jelly, you can test it out by taking a whiff off of the jam-scented wax seal on the side of the bottle. You can sip this with some ice or as the base of a cocktail, and of course, with a big PB & J sandwich.

Loveland’s Valentine Beer

If you find yourself alone this Valentine’s Day, a mug of Loveland’s Official Valentine’s Beer will be sure to raise your spirits. By Grimm Brothers Brewhouse, The Bleeding Heart is a s’mores porter. That’s right. You can sip on some brew while tasting marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers all at once. In order to get this special beer, you’ll have to visit the Grimm Brothers at their taproom or be lucky enough to come across a six-pack in one of Loveland’s liquor stores.

Do you ever find yourself getting bored with your go-to booze? When you’ve grown tired of that mundane drink order, we’ll be here to walk you through what’s new and noteworthy this week:

Sugarlands Distilling Co

The Tennessee-based distillery, found in the Great Smoky Mountains, is adding two new flavors to their collection of moonshine: Peanut Butter and Jelly, and Blueberry Muffin. These additions mark the start to the “Outlandish Series,” an initiative started to get distillers thinking outside the box. The two new variations will be available at the distillery Nov 27th, and in stores Dec 15th.

The ‘Hot Enough’ Vodka Co

We’ve written about these troublemakers before, with past vodkas that have knocked the bejesus out of people with their spiciness. Up until now, the brand had tortured people with spicy vodkas measuring 100,000 and 250,000 Skovilles (a unit of measurement for spicy peppers). In comparison, your average jalapeño clocks in anywhere between 2,500 and 5,000 Skovilles. Yikes. But now, The ‘Hot Enough’ Vodka Co is back with their most intense iteration yet: a 500,000 Skovilles Naga Chili Vodka. The stuff is so hot that the bottle reads specifically not to drink it in a shot. But, if you’d like to see people do just that, click here.

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Whiskey

Jack Daniel’s has a wide variety of whiskeys. From the constants to the special editions, there is something for everyone. And, when it comes to the US Military, that something is Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Whiskey. According to Jeff Arnett, Jacks’ Master Distiller, the armed forces are faithful members of the By the Barrel program. The program invites prospective buyers to the distillery where they sample whiskey from three different barrels. Once they decide on one barrel, it gets emptied into approximately 250 bottles and shipped to the buyer, for anywhere between $9,000 and $12,000. It’s rumored that Navy Seal Team 6 bought a barrel after killing Osama Bin Laden.

Duval – Leroy Champagne

Following the apparent trend of late, this family-owned champagne founded in 1859 has announced that 100% of its bubblies are vegan. Following requests made by customers, the brand revised its process to expel the use of non-vegan products, typically used to speed up the whole process. While this is great to hear, they aren’t the only ones making this change. Most notably, Verve Clicquot made the transition years ago.

Crown Royale 

Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible tends to be one of the most definitive whiskey rankings of the year. And this time around, Crown Royale Northern Harvest Rye has taken the top spot. In a turn of events, Canada has finally proven themselves in an effort to break the “brown vodka” stereotype placed on their whiskeys. Can you say giftspiration??
