Airtable – A Useful Way to Manage Your Burgeoning Liquor Collection

In Banter by 1 Comment

You’ve got neat glasses (even a NEAT glass), ice molds, boxes, bottle tags, maybe some tickets from your favorite distillery tours and pictures to go with them. A corner of the house is filled with whiskey bottles and all the accouterment that go with them. Maybe you’ve got a liquor cabinet, a pantry, or even a bunker.

There are all kinds of cool things you can buy to go along with your Bourbon obsession. There are always things to drink, things to help you drink and things to look at while you drink.

But do you even know the whole list of what you have in your stash? If you’re at your favorite liquor store and staring at the shelves, do you know, without a doubt, what you have in your collection and what you still need? Is your favorite bottle almost empty? Do you still have 2 bottles?

Union Horse Distilling Reunion Rye Whiskey Review

In Rye Whiskey Reviews by Leave a Comment

Part of my celebration of America’s Independence Day included a new rye from an American distiller out of Kansas. What better way to close out the sun and fun filled holiday weekend than a made in the U.S.A rye whiskey.

Union Horse Distilling was initially launched as Dark Horse Distilling in 2010 but was forced to change their name due to a trademark dispute between the distillery and the E&J Gallo Winery. Since the name change, the distillery, located in Lenexa, Kansas has released both Reunion Straight Rye as well as Reserve Straight Bourbon in addition to their unaged Long Shot White Whiskey and Rider Vodka.

If it sounds familiar that’s because one version of the liqueur is the infamous bar cocktail add-in, blue curacao, popular in tiki drinks around the world.
