In the new April edition of 7x7 Magazine, I have a story about spirits that were created, consulted on, taste-tested, blended, or otherwise designed by bartenders in SF.
Spirits designed by SF bartenders include:
- About 8 single-barrel French brandies at Bar Agricole
- 3 Seasonal Gins at Spruce
- 3 different rums at Smuggler's Cove
- 1 gin at DOSA
Those are the ones custom-made for those bars. In the print edition, I also list spirits designed by SF bartenders that are for sale commercially. (Online, they include recipes with these products.) These include:
- Encanto Pisco
- BroVo Amari (3 of them)
- Bombay Sapphire East Gin
- Jardesca Blanco apertitif
- Kappa Pisco
- Ancho Reyes Chili Liqueur
- Firelit Coffee Liqueur
Read the story here.
Fun Fact: Not only did Thad Vogler and his team bottle up the single-barrel brandies as mentioned in the story, he greatly influenced the creation of Small Hand Foods syrups, Marian Farms curacao, and Leopold Brothers maraschino liqueur. Kind of a big deal.
