Bluecoat Gin

Bluecoat Gin

Bluecoat Gin



Description: As the only American dry gin, Bluecoat is in a class by itself. The primary difference from other dry gins is the use of organic American citrus peels, sweet orange and lemon peel. Combined with a proprietary blend of other American citrus notes, this gives Bluecoat its signature American Dry Gin taste profile. The second difference is the intense smoothness of the spirit itself. Bluecoat is distilled to be an extremely pure spirit, without the harshness of impure alcohols often present in other gins. Bluecoat is distilled with quality in mind over quantity produced. Only the purest alcohols that highlight the desired botanical flavorings become part of the end product. The third major difference is the unusual complexity of flavor. All gins begin with juniper berries and Bluecoat is no exception. However, Bluecoat utilizes organic juniper berries which, in comparison to the typical berries used in most gins, transmit spicy, earthy notes as opposed to pungent evergreen ones.

Fresh orange molasses is brought from the Peace River basin directly to the nearby Florida Distillers Company, reducing the carbon footprint of 4 Orange Vodka’s production as a result of its close proximity to its resources. Its unique distillation process is entirely sustainable, with no waste resulting from its creation. 4 Orange Vodka is available in 750ml and 1 L sizes.

Budget Champagne Alternative

Cremant d'Alsace is a festive choice that won't break the bank

Cremant d'Alsace is a festive choice that won't break the bank



Description: As a best-kept secret as far as Champagne alternatives, Crémant d’Alsace is made according to the highest standards of the Champagne method – meaning hand-harvested, undergoing secondary fermentation in the bottle, etc. – only lacking the Champagne appellation and price tag. At generally $14-24/bottle, Crémant d’Alsace (from Alsace, bien sûr, in the northeast corner of France) is a bargain. The Alsace region is home to hundreds of winemaking families, many stretching back three centuries or more, and has a strong focus on organic and biodynamic winemaking. Some of the most widely available Crémant d’Alsace producers are Albert Mann (which uses 25-year-old vines); François Baur (biodynamic); and Lucien Albrecht (which also makes a 100% Pinot Noir rosé); but there are dozens of others. To make your sparkling wine budget stretch even further, Crémant d’Alsace cocktails are another option, and/or for food pairing ideas, visit http://justaddfood.com/stories/add-spice-to-the-party-by-grub-street.php
