Alcohol Spotlight: Rogue Hazelnut Spice Rum



HAZELNUT SPICE RUM is made with freshly roasted hazelnuts from Kirk Family Filberts, a small family orchard adjacent to the Rogue Farm in Oregon's Wigrich Appellation.

Hazelnut Spiced Rum instantly reveals sweet aromas of toasted hazelnut and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, a sweet blend of vanilla, cinnamon and clove set the stage for an oaky, vanilla and bourbon-like finish.



About the company:

In 1987, some like-minded Rogues had an idea to start a “Brew Pub”. The next year, a Revolution in beer began in the basement of the Rogue Public House in Ashland, Oregon. The Brewery and Pub opened in October 1988 with the brewery housed beneath a 60 seat Pub. The first beers brewed were American Amber and Oregon Golden. Read More

Drink Spotlight: Jay Street Coffee Hazelnut Ready to Drink Coffee


Inspired by the Brooklyn neighborhood and street address that the company is situated on, the new Jay Street Coffee is the latest innovation of the Brooklyn, New York based beverage company-ITO EN(North America) INC. Known for their award-winning signature ready-to-drink teas- TEAS' TEA, the company continues to expand their beverage offerings by venturing into the new market category of coffee.

"Similar to our TEAS' TEA and Oi Ocha brands of fresh brewed ready-to-drink tea products, we developed the Jay Street Coffee brand to leverage our expertise in fresh brewed great tasting beverages," says Jim Hoagland, Executive V.P. of Sales and Marketing. "The ready-to-drink coffee category is growing at almost 20% per year and we believe that the combination of our state-of-the-art technology to freshly brew on all natural, shelf stable coffee in a lightweight PETE bottle will appeal to today's active coffee lover."

The new Jay Street Coffee available in Mocha, Latte and Vanilla, is fresh brewed from 100% Arabica Coffee beans roasted to a medium roast, enhancing the sweetness while minimizing any acidity. With a smooth and flavorful finish, the coffee is conveniently packaged in a 16.9fl oz. recyclable PET 1 bottle. Using milk coming from dairy herds that have not been treated with rBST, the new coffees are ideal for the discerning palate of the busy and active consumer.

The colorful bottle designs depict Brooklyn motifs-the famous water tower located atop of ITO EN's 20 Jay Street building, a historic brownstone window and an iron wrought gate. The three new bottled coffees (Mocha, Latte and Vanilla) are a healthier alternative to the calorie-rich coffees on the market today. With only 180 calories per bottle, Jay Street Coffee is strong in character, but not overly sweet.

"Having been based in Brooklyn for over a decade, we are excited to be launching a locally inspired beverage that was conceptualized in our offices on Jay Street," says Rona Tison, Sr. Vice President of Corporate Relations. "We are proud to be part of the growing community and wanted to honor Brooklyn with this fun new coffee line."

The company recently reduced the packaging of their ready-to-drink beverage bottles to 18.7 grams compared to the industry standard of 24 grams. With a lighter gauge bottle and smaller bottle caps, the company is committed to reducing their carbon footprint. Recognized for their environmental initiatives, ITO EN has been awarded for their innovation of eco-friendly products made from recycled used tea leaves.





About the Company
In downtown Brooklyn, we walk the cobblestone streets near our office to draw inspiration. It was there on Jay Street that we had the idea to bottle a better iced coffee.

Jay Street Coffee is authentic, strong, and proud. Not overly sweet, but always rich in flavor.

Fresh Brewed, 100% Arabica, Medium Roasted

What is medium roast? Also known as Full City Roast, Medium Roast best preserves the flavor of our top quality Arabica beans, creating a coffee that is smooth, balanced, and mildly sweet, without an acidic taste.

About the Company
When I set out to make a special gluten and dairy free energy bar for my husband Jesse, I had his health and my nose in mind. There were specialty bars available that would keep him from starving on his long bike rides, but I couldn't find a single one that was athletically balanced and tasted good. If he was going to make it as a Pro-Triathlete, he needed to start getting picky about his diet. With my nerdy Stanford background in science and athletic performance, I knew what needed to be created, but it wouldn't be easy. Keep Reading

Hazelnuts May Make Better Baby Formula

Researchers at the University of Georgia are saying that fats from hazelnut oil may be the key to making a better baby formula.

A recent study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry shows that fats from hazelnut oil contain certain healthful fatty acids at the same molecular position found on fats from human milk.

"The fatty acid profile of human milk is the gold standard when designing the fat composition of infant formulas," said Casimir Akoh, a research professor of food science and technology at the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. "The unique structure of human milk fat increases digestion and absorption of the fatty acids and improves calcium absorption."
