Millennial Marketing, High-tech Vodka, Hybrid Spirits were some of the product trends I observed at this industry conference for the distribution tier.
So, so much whiskey.
Behold a slew of new whiskies, plus a certified gluten-free vodka, estate-distilled gin, American Campari, apple brandy, and more!
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.
My annual list of most all of the cocktails and spirits books that have been released. This year we see tons of whiskey books again, and a whole segment of bar-specific cocktail books and a new category of narrative cocktail history.
In the last big rollout before the holidays, publishers have pushed out a ton of new drink books.
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.
