Forget about mixing your own drinks or distilling your own spirits (booooring), you aren’t really off the grid until you’re also making your own mixer. Imagine how much fun you can have carefully detailing to all your friends how you home-made the simple syrup as you mix their Sazerac with the whisky you distilled in […]


No longer limited to the boroughs of Edinburgh, the Bramble Bar‘s famed Affinity Cocktail is a pre-bottled concoction of quality Scotch whisky accented with Byrrh and Noilly Prat vermouths. The barrel-aged and bottle-aged spirit comes ready mixed and ready to be served — best when chilled, naturally. It’s basically a modern, Scottish twist on the Manhattan. Order from the […]


Dewar’s already knows what a real Father’s Day for a drinking man is all about. They have done Father’s Day before, if you recall. This year, instead of just making your dad some pancakes or buying him a tie (unless it’s a Le Noeud Papillon “La Belle Dame” Bow Tie, naturally) set up your Distinguished […]

The best of the drinking man's whisky

Dewar’s has earned over 400 awards for their quality scotch, and pride themselves as master blenders with a 160 years of history.

The Darkness! is a series from Scotland’s finest, be it the 21-year-old Ardberg finished in the casks of Oloroso sherry or the Macallan […]

Because dead men tell no ales, but they love whiskey

Since opening their doors as a brew pub in 1988, Rogue has grown with the craft-beer revolution out of Oregon. It has since become one of the top ales to put hair on a man’s face, the Platinum medal-winning Dead Guy Ale. Dedicated to crafting fine booze, it makes sense that spirits be added to the pallet. […]


Koval, a small distillery out of Chicago that’s been in the whisky biz since the 1800’s, knows how to keep things kosher — quite literally— when it comes to organic, fine-grain whiskies. While Koval makes a wide array of spirits, their millet whisky is a little something special in that it is an unusual, and thus notable, […]


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 […]
