About the Company
It’s time to change the way you look at wine. It’s also time — finally — for a wine that caters to those who are not wine snobs.

Whether a classically trained sommelier or a novice in the wine world, we’ve all had this experience before.

You walk into a supermarket, liquor store, or wine shop and gawk at hundreds (even thousands) of bottles there in front of you. So, which wine do you choose? Do you choose based on country or varietal (type of wine)? Do you pick a color, cover your eyes, and randomly select a bottle? Perhaps you attempt to match the type of wine with your meal. Or, do you simply go with the same bottle you’ve been buying for years because you’re afraid to try something new? You might even pull out your smartphone to quickly search the Internet for recommended bottles in your price range.
No More!

Wines For Dummies takes the headache out of choosing a wine that fits your needs. If you already know what you’re having for dinner, check the back of our labels for suggestions on what pairs well with each varietal. If you’re looking for a certain flavor, check the back label for a plain English explanation of what to expect inside the bottle. And, if you’re struggling to pronounce the name on one of our wines, no worries! All of our wines include a phonetic pronunciation on the front label.

We want you to enjoy wine, regardless of experience or budget. So, say no to anxiety, complications, and fancy language. It’s time that you spend less energy worrying about which wine to get and more energy enjoying the wines you’ll love.

Product Spotlight: Dr. Adam Elmegirab’s Dandelion & Burdock Bitters

 

Released in the winter of 2009, Dandelion & Burdock Bitters are a unique, hand-crafted cocktail ingredient created by Adam Elmegirab to satisfy the global bar community’s growing demand for new and exciting products.

 

Dandelion & Burdock is a traditional British beverage dating back to the 1300s and is believed to have been created by the Italian priest Saint Thomas Aquinas. They were famed for their alleged medicinal properties, like the many cocktail bitters that followed in later years, and were a favourite drink of Adam during his childhood.

 

Referencing a number of Dandelion & Burdock receipts, these bitters attempt to capture their flavour profile in bitters formulae. Compounded using the finest natural botanicals, these bitters are now being used by bartenders around the globe in a number of classic cocktails and original libations such as the Chiapas Old Fashioned, created by Adam Elmegirab for Yatai in 2009;

 

50ml reposado Tequila
12.5ml green tea infused sugar syrup
2 dashes Dandelion & Burdock Bitters
Strip white grapefruit zest

Product Spotlight: Popcorn Suttons Tennessee White Whiskey

 
THEIR STORY
Tennessee Whiskey Legend, Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton was a third generation Moonshiner that lived and distilled his whiskey in Cocke County, Tennessee, but also claimed North Carolina as home.

Popcorn was well known throughout the South and beyond for making the best damn “likker” anyone had ever tasted. Popcorn lived life on his own terms, did and said whatever the hell he wanted and always had a trick up his sleeve.

On March 16th 2009, while facing 18 months in federal prison for making moonshine (not paying taxes on his whiskey), he decided to take his own life rather than go to prison.

Popcorn believed in his whiskey and the traditions he lived and ultimately died for. Even in the midst of his impending prison sentence, he managed to ensure that his life’s work would continue by passing on his whiskey-making tradition to me.

Popcorn knew he was the last true moonshiner and before his death, he taught me, “The Grocery Boy”, his secret recipes as well as the tradition and craft that made his whiskey world-renowned.

Celebrating the legacy of a whiskey making legend and my mentor, I’m proud to bring you America’s Rebel Spirit exactly the way Popcorn made it.

ABOUT GREENBAR COLLECTIVE
Greenbar Collective represents the world’s largest portfolio of organic, handcrafted spirits, including BAR KEEP organic bitters, CRUSOE organic rums, FRUITLAB organic liqueurs, IXÁ organic tequila, SLOW HAND organic whiskey, TRU organic gin and TRU organic vodkas.

But that wasn’t always the case.

When husband-and-wife team Melkon Khosrovian and Litty Mathew began making spirits in 2004, they used conventional spirits and local, hand-processed produce.

Soon, their unique spirits won many awards. But Melkon and Litty couldn’t take all the credit. They learned their successes also hinged on some silent partners — the farmers who grew their ingredients. Several had moved to organic farming, resulting in more aromatic, flavorful produce…which led to more flavorful, aromatic spirits.

Their minds were made. ORGANICS HELD THE KEY TO BETTER TASTING SPIRITS. Today, Greenbar Collective produces and distributes the world’s biggest portfolio of organic spirits — all made by hand with real ingredients.

The environment also benefits because the company uses lightweight bottles, 100% recycled labels and plants a tree for every bottle sold. Cheers!

About the Company

Traveling throughout the world with friends and family is one of our greatest pleasures. No matter where we end up, (even in the back woods) we frequently discover infused cocktails created with local flavors. Bear Hug® Infusions have come from some of the greatest infusions we have found in the West Indies, North & South America and Europe

 

Some of the remote destinations we have visited have never heard of the term “Mixology” for their local bartender uses the market down the road as a guide. These magnificent infusion cocktails have come from their local fare which includes everything from fresh fruits & vegetables to coffee and cocoa beans.

While the bartender is preparing your drink you can see them squeeze this, muddle that, crush, stir and pour… And then they hand over a drink, hand-made just for you, that drink with all its surroundings tastes like the most wonderful part of your day.

Using fresh ingredients to create a special drink is both their tradition and art. For us these concoctions with natures touch have become our Bear Hug®.

In creating Bear Hug® Infusions we sought to replicate and bottle the infused cocktails we have discovered, and share them with the world. So no matter where you are, grab some friends, raise a glass of Bear Hug® Infusions and toast to every bartender that helped inspire natures infused cocktails.

cruandistillers

Product Spotlight: Cruzan Rum Launches the Distiller’s Collection

 

DEERFIELD, IL, Sep 09, 2013 — This month, Cruzan® Rum unveils the Cruzan® Distiller’s Collection, a line of super-premium, blended aged rums. Comprised of Cruzan® Estate Diamond® Dark Rum and the new Cruzan® Estate Diamond® Light Rum, along with the popular Cruzan® Single Barrel Rum, the collection stays true to the spirit of The Don’t Hurry™ and doesn’t rush the aging process, waiting until each rum is aged to perfection.

The Cruzan Estate Diamond rums were originally created by Hardy Nelthropp, who served as Cruzan Master Distiller from 1959-2007 and bottled the rum to share with his close friends on St. Croix. Each rum is aged between five and 12 years and, like all Cruzan rums, is made from tropical rainwater, high-quality molasses and distilled to be the cleanest-tasting rum on the market.

“I’m thrilled for Cruzan fans to experience our Distiller’s Collection,” said Gary Nelthropp, President and Master Distiller of Cruzan Rum. “We take great pride in the craftsmanship of our aged rums, and the Cruzan Distiller’s Collection offers consumers the opportunity to enjoy some of my family’s favorite expressions.”

Cruzan Estate Diamond Light Rum is carefully charcoal filtered and contains subtle vanilla and oak cask flavors, while Cruzan Estate Diamond Dark Rum is expertly crafted to bring out the complex flavor of barrel-aged rum. Cruzan Single Barrel Rum, one of the most awarded aged rums on the market, uses a unique blend of vintage rums that have been aged for up to 12 years and bottled one cask at a time. The term “single barrel” refers to the fact that after its initial aging, the rum is picked and blended before it is barreled for a second time in new American oak barrels and slowly aged again. All three rums are equally enjoyable neat, on the rocks or as a base in classic cocktails. Jesse Card, Master Mixologist for Cruzan Rum, created the following recipes to introduce the new collection to cocktail lovers:

Cruzan® Fig Pie
2 parts Cruzan® Estate Diamond® Dark Rum
3/4 parts Orange Juice
1/4 parts 1:1 Brown Sugar Syrup (1 part brown sugar, 1 part water)
1 tablespoon Fig Chutney

Method: Combine all ingredients over ice in a shaker. Shake hard for 15 seconds, double strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with grated nutmeg & skewered fig.

Cruzan® Winter Break
2 parts Cruzan® Estate Diamond® Light Rum
1 parts Pineapple Juice
1/4 parts 2:1 Muscovado Syrup (combine 2 parts Muscovado sugar, 1 part water)
5 parts Hot Peppermint Tea

Method: Combine rum, pineapple juice and Muscovado syrup in a toddy glass and stir. Slowly add tea to the glass and garnish with fresh grated cinnamon and stick.

Cruzan® Sidecar
2 parts Cruzan® Single Barrel Rum
1 part DeKuyper® Triple Sec Liqueur
A splash of Lemon Juice

Method: Combine ingredients and shake with ice in a mixing glass until chilled. Pour into a cocktail glass (a sugar-rim garnish is optional).

All three products in the Distiller’s Collection are available nationwide. Cruzan Estate Diamond Light Rum and Estate Diamond Dark Rum have a suggested retail price of $19.99 per 750ml bottle, and Cruzan Single Barrel Rum features a suggested retail price of $29.99 per 750ml bottle. The Distiller’s Collection joins the Cruzan portfolio of rums that include Cruzan Aged Light Rum, Cruzan Aged Dark Rum, Cruzan Black Strap Rum, Cruzan 151 Proof Rum, Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum and 13 flavored rums infused with natural flavors, such as vanilla, key lime, passion fruit, coconut, mango and strawberry.

About Cruzan® Rum

Named for the people of St. Croix (Crucians), Cruzan® Rum is synonymous with the spirit of the island whose unpretentious and authentic lifestyle proves that life — like our rum — is more enjoyable when you embrace The Don’t Hurry™ and sit back, relax and take things one sip at a time. The Nelthropp family, who has called St. Croix home for eight generations and runs the distillery to this day, crafts each of its rums with natural ingredients and a five-column distillation process. Cruzan® also touts one of the cleanest-tasting rums in the industry — a characteristic derived from crafting a spirit with low levels of fusel oils, a by-product of the distillation process which, if not removed, can taint the smell and taste of the rum.
