  2. Asbury Park Distilling Aquavit

    Proof86 (43% ABV)
    Asbury Park Distilling is the first distillery in Asbury Park, New Jersey, since Prohibition. It was launched in 2017 by Rob Wile, Zack Ohebshalom, and 4 other partners. Located in the downtown business district, the craft distillery team produces gin, bourbon, vodka, aquavit, and an espresso limoncello, with more expressions planned for the future. Master Distiller Bill Tambussi traveled from Scotland to the US, earning a Master's Degree at the Heriot-Watt University before finally being able to channel his passion into distilling, fulfilling his long-time dream. After working at Philadelphia Distillery, he found his new home in Asbury Park. He is helped by fellow distiller Kelly Lynch, who helps with their German-made custom Carl Artisan still.

    They take pride in their logo which perfectly embodies who they are. It depicts a mermaid, flanked by juniper berries and rye stalks, both key components in their spirits. Behind her, you can see The Carousel, an iconic Asbury Park building, while the tentacles and seashell pay tribute to the ocean that lies just a few blocks from the distillery. The mermaid's closed eyes symbolize Asbury Park's "accepting, collaborative, cooperative, and proud" community.

    A tasting room is on the premises, offering a wide range of cocktails beside their spirits. As they are legally obliged to sell only alcohol that is produced on-site, it's a great opportunity to taste delicious drinks that are truly made from scratch, which includes all the alcohol, bitters, tonics, syrups, cordials, tinctures, and anything else that makes it into a cocktail. Casey Bowen has been the head bartender since 2017, working his magic into each drink that is served there.

    Asbury Park Distilling Aquavit is a grain-based spirit that is distilled from 100% corn with caraway and dill. An exclusive list of botanicals makes for a complex and flavor-packed expression that's bottled at 86 proof. Look for notes of licorice, anise, juniper, and caraway, as well as a pleasant warmth throughout. It has won a Double Gold Medal at the 2021 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, where it was named "Best of Class".

  4. Western Son Blueberry Vodka

    Proof60 (30% ABV)
    Evan Batt and John Straits are both industry veterans who started talking about starting their own business in 2010. Together with some friends, they started making their vision a reality, procuring equipment, and searching for a suitable distillery site. Western Son Distillery was born and Western Son Vodka was launched in 2011. The distillery is located in Pilot Point, Texas, in a 30,000-square-foot building that was once The Old Panty Factory. The distillery has quickly grown with the current lineup consisting of several flavored vodka expressions, as well as 2 gins and a single-barrel bourbon whiskey. A portion of the profits is donated to the Peter Burks Unsung Hero Fund, a non-profit organization that collects and delivers care packages to the military.

    The vodka that serves as the base for Western Son's numerous expressions is distilled from a mixture of Midwest and Texas yellow corn. Naturally gluten-free, the corn is milled and mixed with reverse osmosis water from a local aquifer and cooked. Then the mash is fermented at 75°F, letting the yeast convert the sugars into alcohol. The first distillation takes place in a copper pot still, while all the subsequent distillations take place on a column still with 13 perforated copper plates. The vodka is distilled 10 times in total, resulting in an exceptionally smooth, clean, and pure spirit.

    Crafted with small-batch Original Texas Vodka that's distilled 10 times, Western Son has a number of flavored vodka expressions in their lineup that includes lemon, blueberry, watermelon, lime, prickly pear, cucumber, raspberry, peach, and grapefruit vodkas. Western Son Piney Woods Blueberry is bursting with juicy blueberry flavor and is bottled at 60 proof. It has won a Gold Medal at the SIP Awards in 2017.

  5. Born and Bred American Craft Vodka

    Proof80 (40% ABV)
    Teton Valley Idaho is nestled between 3 mountain ranges: the Tetons to the east, the Snake River Range to the south, and the Big Hole Mountains to the west. To the north, there's the west gate of Yellowstone National Park. The high valley is situated at an elevation of 6,200 ft, with plenty of snow in the winter providing an abundance of pure mountain water. Surrounded by acres upon acres of famous Idaho potatoes, it was natural for the Teton Distillery to bring together the two abundant raw materials of the region.

    The distillery, located in Driggs, Idaho, was launched in 2011. They produce award-winning vodkas, as well as bourbon, whiskeys, and malt whiskies. Priding themselves on using local & regional ingredients, natural fruit, and sustainable practices, they do everything they can to leave as small a footprint as possible while crafting the highest quality spirit. They recirculate their cooling water, storing it in a buried tank, the residual mash is given to local ranchers and farmers to be used as animal feed and fertilizer, and their roofs are covered in solar panels.

    Born and Bred American Craft Vodka was created in partnership with acclaimed actor Channing Tatum. The vodka is distilled 20 times under the watchful eye of Master Distiller John Boczar from local Idaho potatoes and crystal-clear mountain water from the Grand Tetons. It's a full-bodied and flavorful expression that is handcrafted and charcoal-filtered for the ultimate smoothness. The small-batch vodka is bottled at 80 proof.

    The vodka is distilled a whopping 17 times from Florida sweet corn. It is then triple filtered using freeze filtration, anti-gravity charcoal filtration, and coconut husk filtration, each process being repeated 7 times, ensuring the ultimate purity and smoothness. It is then bottled at 80 proof with the added bonus of being both non-GMO as well as gluten-free. The vodka has received a Silver Medal at the 2017 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

  9. Green Hat Summer Cup

    Proof66 (33% ABV)
    Inspired by the grand British Summer Cup tradition of combining gin with various extra botanicals, Green Hat Summer Cup is based on the distillery's Navy gin. Infused with copious amounts of additional botanicals added, this aromatic gin boasts notes of citrus, rosehips, cucumber, verbena, black tea, lavender, and other herbs. If you wish to enjoy it traditional way, we recommend you have it with lemon-lime soda or ginger ale.

    Green Hat Summer Cup received Gold from American Distilling Institute. Green Hat Gin was named #5 Best Craft Gin Distillery by USA Today.

    Crafted in Washington, D.C.’s first distillery since Prohibition, Green Hat Gin is inspired by the infamous "Man in the Green Hat." Instantly recognizable in his green felt fedora, George Cassiday was a mysterious bootlegger who kept Congress well-stocked during Prohibition from his private offices in the House and Senate. Legend has it that he recorded more than 25 deliveries per day in his Black Book over the course of a decade, making him very popular indeed on both sides of the Hill. Cassiday is credited with helping to bring Prohibition to an end with a series of scathing front-page articles, even at the demise of his own good fortune. A man of his word, he destroyed the Black Book on the eve of Repeal and has been synonymous with the D.C. spirits scene ever since.

  10. Aperol

    Proof22 (11% ABV)
    When liquorist Gaspare Campari invented the red aperitif in 1860 in Milan, Italy he couldn't have imagined what a large player the Campari Group would become. His bars and liqueurs soon became known far and wide, but it wasn't until his son Davide took over that the company got the focus it needed. He built the brand around two drinks ― the Campari bitter and Cordial Campari ― channeling all the marketing into making them known worldwide. It was in 1932 that Campari Soda would launch in its signature bottles that have remained the same to this day.

    It was in the 1990s that the group began to expand considerably, acquiring several iconic liqueur, vodka, gin, rum, tequila, whiskey, cognac, wine, and mixed-drink brands. Today the company is the 6th largest player in the world with 18 manufacturing plants around the globe as well as several wineries. Its headquarters are located in Sesto San Giovanni, Italy, where their very first plant was built in 1904.

    After gaining extreme popularity as an "aperitivo" ― a social late afternoon pre-dinner drink ― in the form of Aperol Spritz, Aperol has taken the world by storm. Its bitter, sweet, and herbal profile is created using a secret recipe with various herbs and roots and its bright orange color makes it instantly recognizable. Mixed with sparkling prosecco and soda water and garnished with a slice of orange, it makes the refreshing Aperol Spritz cocktail that started a craze in Northeast Italy and has since become one of the most popular mixed drinks worldwide.
