Six spirits to do après right.
Far North Spirits’ Gustaf Gin
The “navy strength” on the label of Far North Spirits’ Gustaf gin refers to the fact that, back in the day, alcohol was allowed aboard ships only if it was potent enough that, should it spill on the gunpowder, the gunpowder would still light. The 114 proof of this liquor is tamed nicely by 11 botanicals.
Tequila ArteNOM Seleccion de 1549 Blanco Organico
Unaged liquor can be overpowering. Not so the pleasantly complex Tequila ArteNOM Seleccion de 1549 Blanco Organico. The agave sweetness comes through, along with a hint of cacao.
Lo-Fi Aperitifs’ Sweet Vermouth
Lo-Fi Aperitifs’ Sweet vermouth is syrupy and tart, an excellent complement to the finest rye or mezcal.
Alloy Wine Works
Sure, we’ve packed in boxed wine to campsites before. A better alternative: Alloy Wine Works, which matches portability with refined taste.
Kings County Distillery’s Grapefruit Jalapeño Moonshine
Who’d have thought to mix the namesake ingredients in Kings County Distillery’s Grapefruit Jalapeño Moonshine? The combination adds a satisfying sour-spicy kick to any cocktail.
Few Spirits’ Barrel Gin
Oak-barrel aging imparts Few Spirits’ Barrel gin with a flavor somewhere between classic gin and peppery bourbon.
