About Dark Door Spirits
Dark Door Spirits, a Tampa-based craft distillery on the west coast of Florida, was founded by Matthew Allen and Brandon Marshall. The name is an allusion to "that dark door at the bottom of the stairs or at the end of the alley" for opening one of their bottles should make you a little nervous. Nervous in a good way, like "you're a little afraid, but on the other side, you're really glad you did it because you're rewarded with an experience that really gets your senses firing."
Their mission is to break the glass ceiling and the spirits they are brewing up at Dark Door Spirits are unique and innovative in the truest sense of these words, hence the possible nervousness. Among their award-winning innovations, for example, is the Spirit of IPA, which is a whiskey blended with an IPA beer from Safety Harbor's Crooked Thumb craft brewery. Or, a gin infused with lavender and rose hips.
Since all of the founders have been employed in the hospitality industry at one point or another, they understood very well what it meant for everyone depending on it as the main source of income when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Wanting to give back to the community and help those in need, fifty percent of Dark Door Spirits profits from sales of Pandemic at the Disco will be donated to charitable organizations supporting the local hospitality industry, including the U.S. Bartender Guild COVID-19 relief fund. The concept of Pandemic at the Disco is an 'essential vodka' of a beautiful clean, crisp flavor, distilled from 100% grains, that can be enjoyed independently or in a cocktail.
Historians are not clear on the exact origin of vodka since different sources link its beginning to both Russia and Poland. But one thing is clear: this somewhat simple spirit, first used as a medicinal concoction, has become one of the most versatile drinks in the world.
It can be distilled from any type of grains, potatoes, or even grapes worldwide. Due to its simplicity, this unaged spirit's main flavor factor is the quality of water and the ingredients used in the distillation process.
Primarily used in cocktails, vodka can also stand its ground when enjoyed neat.
