You know what blows? Wearing pants. Specifically, the social obligation to do so in order to consume alcohol in public. Judge me if you must, but I am hard pressed to believe anyone enjoys wearing pants while drinking. They are a very restrictive piece of clothing that does not lend itself well to excessive bloating. Take a minute to reflect on the history of great drinkers. What were they wearing? The Romans? A sheet. The Egyptians? Half a sheet. Oliver Reed? He just took his pants off.  Continue Reading →

See You At Whiskey In The Winter 2015

The weather is changing and they days are getting shorter. It can only mean one thing. That’s right, it’s whiskey drinking season!

There’s no better way to celebrate the season than to attend the 4th Annual Whiskey in the Winter on November 20, 2015.

Whiskey in the Winter is St. Louis’ very own whiskey festival. And while we proudly call it St. Louis’ whiskey festival it has grown to be one of the premier whiskey events in the country. We’re proud to be an event sponsor once again this year and hope you’ll join us for an amazing evening of whiskey, gourmet food and lively banter.

Building on the past three years shows this year is going to be better than ever. The event is now being hosted on a Friday evening with a new start time of 7 PM. The new start time allows for VIP ticket holders to gain access to the whiskey hall even earlier than in previous years meaning you’ll have more time to sample some of the rare whiskeys available with your VIP Golden Ticket. (VIP ticket holders get to enter the hall 45 minutes earlier.) Continue Reading →

Today we have a pair of liqueurs from Sukkah Hill Spirits: Etrog and Besamim. If those words sound unfamiliar to you, know that they have their roots in Judaism. The etrog is a citron used in the week-long festival of Sukkot (Sept. 27-Oct. 4 this year). Besamim means spices and often refers to those spices used in the closing of Shabbat. Both are made with cane sugar (not high fructose corn syrup), without preservatives or additives (other than alcohol), and are kosher. They are also fairly high proof for liqueurs which is a plus in my book. Okay, let’s taste and mix. Continue Reading →
