RedLeg owner launches botanical vodka range

RedLeg owner launches botanical vodka range


Drinks group Distil has announced the launch of a range of lower-ABV botanical vodkas: Trøve.

The spirit drinks are distilled with 100 per cent natural ingredients, including fruits and other botanicals, and are bottled at 30% ABV. They represent a bid by Distil to capture a corner of the growing market for lower-alcohol spirit-based drinks.

Trøve has been created in partnership with master distiller Sion Edwards, co-founder and former director of gin producer Warner Edwards (now Warner's).

It launches with three flavours: Valencian Orange with Lime, Green Apple with Ginger, and Raspberry with Lemongrass and Mint. The botanical vodkas have been designed to mix with tonic or soda in longer drinks and are all vegan, sugar free and gluten free.

Kate Alexander, marketing and operations director at Distil, said: "We are delighted to be launching Trøve at a time when we believe consumers are looking for brands that allow them to make better choices without compromising on flavour. Post-Covid in particular, consumers want to live healthier, more balanced lifestyles, but that doesn’t mean that they want to be teetotal.

Review: Kozuba Potato Vodka, Triple Sec, and Rye 6 Years Old

Review: Kozuba Potato Vodka, Triple Sec, and Rye 6 Years Old


Kozuba High Wheat Rye Whiskey 6 Years Old

The Kozuba & Sons Distillery was born in Poland in 2005, and 2014 the company made what you might say is a major move: Picking up stakes and replanting in St. Petersburg, Florida. Now a respected operation in the States, Kozuba produces a range of spirits, including multiple expressions of vodka (naturally), various liqueurs, and a range of whiskeys — all of which are produced on site. Nothing sourced here. (Kozuba also makes the BarBox boxed cocktails we have previously reviewed.)

We received a sampling of Kozuba’s most noteworthy releases. Let’s dig in.

Kozuba Potato Vodka – There’s also a vodka made from corn and one from wheat, plus a flavored expression, but potato is Old World O.G. This six-times distilled expression is an ultra-fresh and clean vodka, bracingly medicinal on the nose but wholly approachable, as straightforward as could be on the refreshing nose, hinting just so at iodine and just a hint of a generalized cereal character — though there’s no grain in the mash on this one. Potato pancakes then, let’s say. Again, it’s incredibly open and expressive on the tongue, a gentle hospital note offering very mild and complementary notes of fresh grass, lemon curd, lavender, and a hint of sweet caramel. Some coconut notes emerge on the finish, but all of this is extremely dialed back, letting the linen-clean elements shine through. 80 proof. A / $23 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Kozuba Triple Sec – A “Polish twist on a classic Dutch recipe,” this clear triple sec has an ultra-clear mandarin orange note on the nose, very sweet and evocative of lunchtime Cuties. Hints of vanilla give this even more of a dessert-like quality, plus enough nuance to make it perfectly enjoyable when sipping straight. Of course, it’s top-notch mixing material. 74 proof. A / $18 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Who Ordered the Blue Drink?


Last week, during a rare visit to my local Whole Foods, dodging underpaid and overworked Instacart employees, I saw something I had never imagined: blue kombucha. I’m not talking about vaguely blackberry or blueberry blue. This was BLUE. Windex blue. Blue Curaçao blue. As both a kombucha and blue drinks aficionado, I was disturbed and delighted. I bought two bottles.

My history with blue drinks goes back to a night in the late fall of 2010. I was a bartender at PDT—the New York neo-speakeasy that helped usher cocktail arcana into popular culture—and was working with my boss, Jim Meehan, on a tropical drink I hoped would reflect the flavors of a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Warm nuttiness layered into pineapple and citrus. The crux of it was butter-infused rum, which relied on the same fat-washing technique as Don Lee’s iconic Benton’s Old-Fashioned. To this I added pineapple juice, lime juice and Frangelico—a neglected bottle of hazelnut liqueur I’d discovered tucked into a corner of the backbar—as well as a few dashes of Bittermens tiki bitters. But still, something was missing. My first thought was apricot liqueur, but Jim suggested orange Curaçao. It was a couple of years into my tenure at PDT and having gotten away with violating the semi-official Lord Willy dress code by wearing pinstriped trousers and rainbow suspenders, I took a risk. “How about blue Curaçao?” I quipped, fully expecting rejection. (A few months earlier, my colleague Sean Hoard had weaseled a bottle into our inventory, which I’m almost sure was inspired by Jacob Briars’ Corpse Reviver No. Blue, now considered a modern classic.) Jim, with loving reluctance, agreed and The Shark was born.

Back in 2010, you’d go to PDT to get talked out of a vodka-tonic order. It was the height of the cocktail renaissance and early high-mixology bars like Milk & Honey literally did not serve vodka; PDT had a strict “no substitutions” policy. We fought for the soul of the cocktail night after night, attempting to wrest it away from the saccharine Cosmos and pancreas-busting Daiquiris of years past. Forget about Long Island Iced Teas, Lemon Drops or, god forbid, Blue Hawaiis. Everything was Very Serious. That The Shark could land a menu spot next to highbrow cocktails featuring Lillet Rouge and Hungarian Zwack was an aberration, to say the least.

Fast-forward 11 years. Here we are, amid the smoldering ruins of a hospitality industry crushed by the pandemic. Some of our most venerable cocktail bars have shuttered and millions are left without work. Today, a persistent insistence on serious drinks and myopic reverence for the classics seems at best trivial and persnickety, and at worst deeply inhospitable. But back then, the commitment somehow worked. “Now, there are generations of bartenders for whom a Negroni is a perfectly normal thing, where you can just go into any bar in America and get a pretty good one, and that just wasn’t the case in 2005,” Jim recalled on a recent phone call.

Before the Negroni went mainstream, however, guests were expected to order “correctly,” often without having the tools or vocabulary to work with a bartender to get a mutually agreeable drink. Bartenders felt duty-bound to enlighten guests, sometimes at the expense of hospitality and grace. It took a couple of years before I realized it was actually a lot more work to explain why we “can’t” do a drink with vodka instead of Islay Scotch than it was to just make the damn vodka-soda.

Torabhaig reveals launch date of second single malt whisky

Torabhaig reveals launch date of second single malt whisky


Scotch distillery Torabhaig has announced the launch date for its second single malt whisky.

Allt Gleann, the second release in the distillery's Legacy Series, will be release on 16 July 2021. Named after the stream that flows beside the distillery on the Isle of Skye, the small-batch whisky will be bottled at 46% ABV and drawn from no more than 30 casks. 

It follows the sell-out success of Torabhaig's first expression, Legacy Series 2017, released in February 2021. The Allt Gleann will be released in larger quantities in four batches throughout 2021 and 2022 and will be available through independent spirits retailers and the distillery's on-site shop.

The second legal distillery on Skye, and the first to open on the island in almost 200 years, Torabhaig has been making whisky since January 2017 in a style described as 'well-tempered peat'. The distillery uses traditional wooden washbacks for fermentation and twin copper pot stills to create its liquids.

The Legacy Series is designed to capture different stages of its whisky's maturation. Four releases are planned in the series, ahead of the release of the Torabhaig 10 Years Old Single Malt Whisky, planned for 2028.

Craft Whisky Club – Torabhaig Tasting Experience on 20th May – Scotch Whisky News

Craft Whisky Club – Torabhaig Tasting Experience on 20th May – Scotch Whisky News



Please find information below on Craft Whisky Club’s latest virtual tasting event, hosted by global brand manager of Torabhaig, Bruce Perry on Thursday 20th May.

The guided tasting will take participants, whether knowledgeable whisky drinkers or newcomers to the scene, on a journey from inception to bottling, opening up the methods, ingredients and flavours which have brought these whiskies to life. The virtual event will be the perfect evening for those keen to learn more about their favourite spirit, as well as developing the key skills in tasting and understanding whisky.

For the occasion, Craft Whisky Club have put together a special tasting set containing 5 x 3cl samples; one 2017 Torabhaig inaugural release and four private bottlings from Mossburn Distillers & Blenders. All the samples in the tasting set have been selected to demonstrate a real range of exciting and innovative whisky making methods and flavour profiles. Bruce Perry will be talking through all five liquids along with providing background on the Torabhaig Distillery and the very sought-after inaugural release.

The Torabhaig Legacy 2017, an extremely limited bottle was released to Craft Whisky Club members last month, a real scoop with the initial release selling out almost instantly amongst whisky fans. With coastal peat and island aromas such as salt, seaweed and limestone on the nose, the pale copper gold of this whisky takes influence from its surrounding and heritage to create a strong profile of peat, alongside aromatic herbs, peaches, vanilla and roasted almonds.

The tasting packs are available to purchase for both members and non-members directly from the site here. This special Tasting Pack includes a virtual ticket to the event and is priced at £30. Anyone can purchase a Tasting Set (if based in the UK), or members can join to hear all about Torabhaig and Mossburn whilst tasting from their own bottle of Torabhaig.

Mark’s Whisky Ramblings 383: Lindores 1494 Inaugural Release

Mark Dermul, Belgian whisky blogger, is one of the members of the 1494 club at Lindores and the first bottle has just arrived. Obviously the Lindores Abbey Distillery enjoys the reputation of the historically important location, the abbey which is considered by many to be the spiritual home of whisky, where Friar John Cor was ordered by King James IV to produce ‘aqua vitae from eight bols malt’. In 2013 a distillery was built on site and in 2017 the first distillated tricked from the stills. In the third week of April 2021 a friendly courier delivered Mark’s package with the long awaited Inaugural Release. He is member 0701, chosen because it’s his birthday.

Review: Wines of Youngberg Hill, 2021 Releases

Review: Wines of Youngberg Hill, 2021 Releases


Christopher Null May 9, 2021

Youngberg Hill winery can be found near McMinnville in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where it’s also home to what appears to be a beautiful boutique inn as well. Today we look at three current release bottlings from the winery, which is naturally focused on pinot noir.

2020 Youngberg Hill Aspen Pinot Gris Willamette Valley – Fresh, fruity, and floral, this textbook pinot gris has powerful notes of apricot, peach, and lemon notes, balanced with honeysuckle and jasmine on the back end, giving the wine a floral kick. Hints of lime emerge on the finish, though those apricot notes never far from the fray. This is a delight on its own, but it deserves an appropriate meal of seafood or a light pasta dish to pair it with to really show all of its charms. A- / $30

2019 Youngberg Hill Aspen Chardonnay Willamette Valley – A bit on the sour side, this wine (fermented and aged in once-used barrels) offers strong notes of gooseberry and some coconut, with green apple following behind. There’s some astringency here, as the wine feels a touch unripe. I liked it best served quite cold. B / $40

Review: Prairie Sustainable Seasons Flavored Vodkas

Review: Prairie Sustainable Seasons Flavored Vodkas


Prairie Sustainable Seasons Organic Grapefruit, Hibiscus & Chamomile Flavored Vodka

Christopher Null May 9, 2021

Prairie Vodka recently released a trilogy of flavored vodkas, each of which is infused with a trio of ingredients. The twist? These flavors are sustainably sourced and USDA certified organic. Notably, the vodkas contain no sugar and no artificial sweeteners at all, giving each of them only 75 calories per 1.5 fluid ounce.

Let’s dig in. Each is 60 proof.

Prairie Sustainable Seasons Organic Grapefruit, Hibiscus & Chamomile Flavored Vodka – This hits the nose as a rather weird collection of aromas, with fruit, floral, and herbal notes not wholly in alignment. All of the elements are present, but none really dominates — which is unexpected. Grapefruit peel — perhaps — edges out the other two. The palate has a hint of sweetness driven perhaps by the hibiscus, though on the finish any hint of sweetening is quite mild. That said, none of this really ever gels. I don’t really like it solo, and don’t really see a path to mixing with it outside of some jejune summer punch. B- [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]
