As usual, a ton of whiskey and a smattering of other products hitting the US market.
Here are some of the new spirits hitting the market over the last couple of months: lots of rye but also gin, tequila, pisco, applejack, and more.
In today's edition of New Booze, we find new vermouths, vodka, flavored gin, flavored vodka, flavored rum, a couple of amari, a smokeless mezcal, a bottled Old Fashioned, and a ton of new scotch, rye, and bourbon.
The regular New Booze feature might better be called New Whiskey, as it seems 80% of new spirits products released are scotch and bourbon. Today we have 15 of those, plus liqueurs, vodka, gin, cognac, and Spanish brandies.
I'll be giving a repeat of my talk called The Essential Global Guide to Liqueurs.

A grab bag of new booze from which to choose.
