Product Spotlight: Kraken Black Spiced Rum

 

The Kraken Rum is dark and mysterious like the beast itself, and most of the information we have is a mixture of second-hand sailors’ accounts and estimations. However, we can tell you that most spiced rums of comparable proof contain about 70 calories per serving (1 oz.)

The base rum used in Kraken is from Trinidad and Tobago, distilled from molasses made from local sugar cane. The rum is aged 12 – 24 months and then we add a mixture of spices including cinnamon, ginger and clove. All added ingredients are natural, and the Kraken is gluten-free and vegan.

Product Spotlight: Wines for Dummies Chianti

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

Stir until ice cold and strain over ice into a chilled rocks glass.

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!

Product Spotlight: Bear Hug Vodka Infusion Cranberry

 

Inspired by the delicious infused cocktails enjoyed throughout the world, Bear Hug Infusions is a revolutionary new product which combines ultra-premium spirits with real, natural ingredients. Bear Hug Vodka Infusion Cranberry is a tart, subtly sweet spirit created by expertly infusing ripe cranberries with five-times distilled American grain vodka – there are no chemical preservatives, additives or artificial substances. Enjoy it neat, chilled from the bottle, strained into a martini glass, or poured over ice. Add a unique twist to your favorite recipe, or mix the infusions together for a truly creative cocktail!

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.
