If you ever thought the only real difference between whisky and moonshine was the bathtub your booze was brewed in and the letter of the law, think again. Ole Smoky, Appalachian hootch bottlers and the official moonshine of the Talladega Superspeedway (makes sense, seeing as NASCAR came from illegal moonshine runners), age their moonshine in [...]


The Reference Series is the next level of sophisticated drinking. This series of malted whiskey blends sets out for a bottle-paced experiential immersion into the long life of a whiskey, with each blend being bottled (and marked as such) at different points in the aging process. The taster’s experience is thus a deliberate sensorial study in whiskey [...]

Taste buds be warned, this is a devilishly good 114-proof whisky

Dip your finger into the amber liquid (don’t be shy, you’re adventurous, right?), drop it onto your palm and rub.

The sensation almost makes you want to repeat again, until you realize that the Ardbeg Corryvreckan [...]

Fashioning theirs out of traditional pewter, Jack+Mulligan add a tough 18oz water-repellent canvas “cozy” to their flask, which itself is flourished with an embossed chocolate brown leather logo patch. Made in America, the Redford flask can be [...]

A transparent model kit that exposes the boney truth on snacks

If you’ve ever assumed that those delicious Gummy Bears you popped like sugary Xanax were simply chewy invertebrates, think again. The Visible Gummy Bear exposes the ugly truth: that those colorful predators are actually filled with many an organ and bone. Designed by artist Jason Freeny, the Visible Gummy Bear is a transparent plastic carapace that [...]

Celebrating 50 years of Master Distiller Dennis Malcolm

We met Heiko while visiting the five-star Hotel A-Rosa on the island of Sylt in the North Sea. Dubbed the “Hamptons of Germany”, Sylt is populated with the type of old European money that makes the New York seacoast look downright nouveau riche. We learned he was not only an excellent mixologist, but also a classically trained spiritist with [...]
