Alcohol Spotlight: IXÁ Organic Tequila


The ancient Maya believed in magic water and so do we. We make IXÁ with fully matured agave plants and traditional techniques which are becoming increasingly rare — like slow, clay oven steaming, and fermenting & distilling with agave fibers. All this to produce a tequila worthy of the gods.


Rich, complex and with the softest finish, IXÁ captures all aspects of the agave plant in harmony.


IXÁ Hibiscus Margarita
1¾ oz IXÁ organic silver tequila
1 oz FRUITLAB organic hibiscus liqueur
½ oz organic fresh lemon juice
¼ oz organic agave nectar
Shake and pour all out into rocks glass
Garnish with orange whee


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!

Product Spotlight: 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Flavored Vodka


As the first vodka approved to wear the Idaho Potato Commission’s official seal, 44° North Mountain Huckleberry Flavored Vodka is the standard in Idaho potato vodkas. It is an ideal spirit for drinking chilled, straight-up, on the rocks, or in an infinite range of signature cocktails.

44º North Mountain Huckleberry Flavored Vodka is distilled from 100% Idaho Potatoes, blended with Rocky Mountain Water from the Snake River Aquifer, and then infused in our proprietary blend of all natural Huckleberries.


Welcome to North of Center
44° North Vodka is “North of Center.” It’s rugged, authentic, and yet refined. North of Center is a state of mind that’s wide-open and defiantly optimistic, much like the great people of Idaho. 44° North is about exceeding expectations-above the mainstream and off the middle-of-the-road.

Some think you can’t bottle the independent spirit. We just did.


Up From Ordinary
There is a movement happening in the spirit industry. The bland over-processed multi-national brands are giving way to independent, handcrafted spirits. At the northern edge of this movement, 44° North Vodka is distilled from earth and sky-not merely produced in Idaho, it is produced by Idaho.

In 2004, 44° North Vodka began with a simple objective: to achieve a smooth and distinctive taste by distilling directly from 100% Idaho-grown potatoes or Brundage Winter Wheat blended with Rocky Mountain Spring Water. To flavor the vodka, 44° North uses only all natural Mountain Huckleberries and Rainier Cherries. 44º North’s Magic Valley Wheat unflavored vodka is made with grain, which is raised in the heart of Idaho’s Magic Valley growing region.


An Original Idaho Potato Vodka
Let the other producers re-distill industrial produced product, artificially flavor neutral grain spirits, over-distill, and chemically treat their vodka. We’ll stick to using real Idaho-grown ingredients without all the smoke and mirrors.

Idaho Potatoes and Brundage Winter Wheat along with Rocky Mountain spring water produce a smoother vodka without the bitterness. 44° North Vodka accomplishes this with a five-column, multi-plate, distillation process that elevates the proof of the alcohol being distilled as it strips out virtually all impurities.

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
