In late winter, when lemons are cheap, there's nothing easier than a whiskey sour. Tart and sweet, it just might be the ultimate conversion drink for anyone afraid of brown liquor. Once it's hot enough for ice to condense on the outside of a glass, it's time to switch to something a bit taller and cooler. Derby Day calls for juleps, and when berries hit the markets, muddling them into your glass just comes naturally (hello, Blackberry Smash). In fall, nostalgia sends us to the classics: Manhattans, unabashedly made with bourbon instead of rye. Then the cold hits, and its time to get down to business: A flask of bourbon, in the right setting, can bring great cheer. And cozying up inside calls for a heavy glass with one large cube or just the tiniest splash of water, and a good hour or so to sip, relax, repeat.
Bourbon is a year-round pleasure, one there's never been a better time to enjoy. Less than 10 years ago, bourbon was almost exclusively made in Kentucky, by huge companies. But nowadays, there are hundreds of indie makers in dozens of states making their own innovative styles within bourbon's core identity.
Is it any wonder, then, that bourbon has soared in popularity? We fall in love with a new bottle every day, from New Holland Artisan Spirits' Beer Barrel Bourbon (finished in stout barrels!), to FEW Spirits' classic with hints of sweet caramel, smooth wheat and black pepper spice. Breckenridge uses a remarkably high percentage of rye for more spice and less sweetness, while Watershed adds 5% spelt for a distinctively Ohioan take on America's national spirit.
We'll send you a full-size bottle (750ml) of a new bourbon from a different indie maker every month.
Whether you're sipping straight or mixing into your favorite cocktails, you'll be totally inspired month after month by so much spirited passion and craft.
Each month our team of curators puts together an amazing selection, then orders everything from the makers, so everything is as current as possible. The first box will be sent depending on when during the month the order is placed. If you order before the 3rd, you’ll receive your first box that month. If you order on the 4th or later, your first box arrives the next month. Subscriptions boxes are shipped around the middle of each month. Boxes take 1 to 5 business days to arrive, so you can expect to receive yours between the 16th and the 25th. Enjoy the goodies!
