Investing‌ ‌In‌ ‌Whiskey?‌ ‌6‌ ‌Important‌ ‌ Things‌ ‌You‌ ‌Need‌ ‌To‌ ‌Know‌ ‌About‌

whisky-1

Ever wondered why only the affluent in society get to order a glass of whisky at a bar and after that, they leave with a whole bottle in a cab? Nothing alcoholic is as sweet as a half glass of whisky after a long day of work. This has got nothing to do with promoting alcoholism or anything, but let's face it, everyone has their own ways of decompressing. As they say, this helps to ensure that you face another day free of yesterday's sorrows. In his words, Mark Twain said that “too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” If you did not know that, well, now you know.

In the first place, why invest in Whiskey?

You are wondering why you should invest in your favorite drink instead of spending the extra dime on a worthwhile course, right? This is what ills society today. Just because you are having a good time with your glass of favorite whisky, someone will sell you out saying that you are a drunkard. Well, here are the reasons why most people invest in whiskey:

  • It's a high return on investment, especially when you are in the liquor business
  • The filthy rich are doing it, so why shouldn’t you?
  • Various indices and reports show it’s worth it
  • The reasons outweigh the risks
  • You don’t have to pay VAT unlike other assets like cars

But before we get into the nitty-gritty, and before you get convinced otherwise, below are six important things you need to know about investing in whiskey.

1. It’s Always 5 O’clock Somewhere

Someone somewhere is having their happy hour and if you are not, well, you might as well start early! If you are looking to exclusively enjoy some of the finest produced and distilled Whiskey, then you better think of joining the club. As an investor, collector, or connoisseur, becoming a member of a Whisky Club will ensure that you enjoy a good time and specific perks. The thing with most whisky clubs is that you'll get to sample some of the best whiskies, share memorable moments with friends, and get to experience these clubs provide. Delights such perks include:

Your Guide to a Better Choice - Tequila Brands Prices and Recipes

Tequila-brands

Nothing ensures a greater time than a shot of tequila. All tequilas are not made the same. They vary with taste and even prices; some are best for sipping while others are just perfect for margaritas.

Today’s market for tequilas is more complicated since there are numerous brands that one needs to choose. When deciding which brand to consume, you find that Tequila Brands and Pricing varies widely.

Some tequilas can be obtained for as low as 20 dollars while others are worth as much as 100 dollars. The general theory is that expensive tequilas are better than the cheap ones, but it does not apply to all people.

Price should not be the only thing that guides you when finding the best tequila for you. If a certain bottle creates intrigue in you and you like it, then you should buy it.

Here is a representation of the many brands of tequila there is in the market and their variation in prices and recipes.

The History Moonshine Production in The United States

prohibition



Many of the first moonshine stills fired up in the heart of The Appalachian Mountains. As soon as the area was settled farmers began to grow the country's original cash crop, corn. Tennessee farmland was extremely rural at that time and most of the farmers were existing on a subsistence lifestyle. Opportunities to get a leg up in life were therefore extremely sought after. One opportunity that some clever farmers caught onto was distilling. By taking their crop and fermenting/distilling it into a spirit, profits margins could be significantly increased. Of course, the history of moonshine goes far beyond its genesis. Moonshine was the centerpiece for a rebellion. During prohibition, moonshine supplied organized crime syndicates and helped them create their empire. At the same time, bootleggers running moonshine to distributors were outfitting their cars with modifications to make them better able to outrun police. These modifications led to organized races between bootleggers, laying the foundation for modern day NASCAR.

The Whiskey Rebellion of 1791

After the Revolutionary War, the federal government was strapped for cash. In need of some serious revenue, the legislator decided to pass the wildly unpopular Whiskey Tax. In Appalachia, subsistence farmers were so impoverished that moonshine was being used as a de facto currency. Seeing the Whiskey Tax as unfairly targeting the poor, distillers opted to simply ignore the tax and continue on with business as usual. Soon, intrepid tax collectors began venturing into the area to collect on the revenue owed. These tax collectors were met with tar-and-feather along with various forms of general defiance. It wasn't long before these clashes started to turn violent, causing residents in the area to organize into a full-fledged armed rebellion. The federal government immediately responded in force to put down the rebellion. Appalachian rebels quietly put down their arms, however, friction in the region was never resolved.

The Noble Experiment

Disputes between moonshiners and the law continued into the 20th century. At the same time, the country saw the rise to the Temperance Movement. Fueled by the rising popularity of fundamentalist Christianity, the Temperance Movement soon set its sights on alcohol. By 1920 there was enough public support to pass the federal prohibition of alcohol. While fueled by positive intent, the noble experiment as it was called proved to be completely naive. Basic economics teaches us that supply will find demand, and that is precisely what happened.

Moonshiners, Bootleggers, and The Mafia

Already adept at existing outside of the law, moonshiners immediately saw prohibition as an opportunity. The stills of Appalachia fired up and moonshine began to flow out of the mountains faster than ever before. This moonshine made its way right into the hands of bootleggers. Bootleggers were the new cowboys, willing to run illegal alcohol from its place of production to the distributors in big cities. Authorities targeted bootleggers almost instantly and so began the highest speed cat and mouse game the world had ever seen. To get an edge over their pursuers, bootleggers began modifying their vehicles to increase performance. Soon bootleggers started to compete amongst each other which quickly transformed from organized machismo to modern day Nascar.

The end of prohibition came in 1933, due to the wild rise of crime and violence brought on by moonshine's distributor; The Mafia. A quick scroll through Netflix and a person can see how romanticized this period of time has become. However, the reality was far less glossy and romantic. Many people lost their lives over the ability to make a quick buck selling alcohol. This motif followed in the 80's with crack cocaine and other drugs being pushed by various gangs.

A Review of 10 Craft Beer Brands

A Review of 10 Craft Beer Brands

15 out of 20 bottles of beer in ratings of the best beer of all times is imperial stout.  It is the most remarkable style of beer and often the most vivid and memorable. Bourbon County is one of the best and it is hard to get as long as it is brewed in Illinois and is out of sale almost at once. A beer shop assistant in Amsterdam was telling a story that there was a few bottles of beer and it was difficult to get a regular delivery going. Dark Lord stout from Three Floyds Indiana is an apotheosis, which is able to buy once a year if to sign up for a special event visiting Indiana. 

There are a few breweries, which are worth of attention. Almost all of them are from Belgium and use spontaneous fermentation to receive the drinks. Those are Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, Oud Beersel, Tilquin, Girardin and Boon. All of these breweries value handicraft trade and try not to chase the progress. 

Beer of 32% potency received through freezing in barrel-aged imperial Paradox stout.  There was a time when it was first in its kind. It is provided 40 ml in some bars and it is a right way to try it. 

Jai Alai is the most delicious kind of beer. There is more and more of a craft beer in America. There are no minuses about craft beer except for the habit to draw it. Cigar City is not afraid of habits which is why a rating site of Ratebeer put it on the fourth place in the list of the best breweries in the world. Jai Alai is hard and thick with orange and apricots as it usually is.  

Some really good beer started to appear in Russia last year basically. Now, there are a few breweries thinking in the right direction and AfBrew is one of them. They have a few kinds of beer and even a classic pumpkin ale traditional for Halloween.

Wyoming Whiskey Barrel Strength Wins Liquid Gold Award in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2017 – American Whiskey News

Wyoming Whiskey Barrel Strength Wins Liquid Gold Award in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2017 – American Whiskey News

Wyoming Whiskey Barrel Strength Wins Liquid Gold Award in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2017

“Take a bow: absolutely superb bourbon! A micro distillery bourbon worth making a macro search for.”

KIRBY, WY (Nov. 2, 2016)— Wyoming Whiskey’s first-ever Barrel Strength Bourbon scored a “Superstar” rating of 95 out of 100 and received a Liquid Gold Award in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2017. Murray describes whiskies of this caliber as one of the “Superstar whiskies that give us all a reason to live.”

According to Murray, Wyoming Whiskey Barrel Strength “ticks plenty of boxes here for even the most hard line bourbon lover.” He described the tasting experience as “a stunning volley of molasses and, presumably, rye as there is a real crisp, juicy quality to this delivery. Sets all your taste buds on edge and they are not given a chance to stand down, as the liquorice mounts up in extraordinary degrees.”

The Barrel Strength Bourbon label was created when two special barrels were discovered by Distiller Sam Mead and industry consultant and master blender Nancy Fraley in the fall of 2015. Barrels #442 and #443 had been subjected to extreme heat in their infancy and, as a result, leaked significantly over the years. A total of 22 gallons remained in these two barrels, collectively, and only 96 bottles were made available in select markets. These bottles sold out before they could even hit the shelves and Jim Murray received a fleeting sample of what he would ultimately characterize as “Liquid Gold”.

“Two of our barrels leaked significantly during their time in the warehouse. We believe this accelerated the oxidation process and turned them into excellent barrels of bourbon,” said Wyoming Whiskey Distiller, Sam Mead. “We are honored that Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, one of the most trusted sources in the industry, identified how special this bourbon is.”

WILD TURKEY RELEASES AMERICA’S FAVOURITE BARREL PROOF BOURBON IN THE UK – American Whiskey News

WILD TURKEY RELEASES AMERICA’S FAVOURITE BARREL PROOF BOURBON IN THE UK – American Whiskey News

WILD TURKEY RELEASES AMERICA’S FAVOURITE BARREL PROOF BOURBON IN THE UK

‘Bourbon Buddha’ hit arrives in time for Fall and Thanksgiving celebrations  

Drinkers who like their spirits with big bold flavours have a new way to wet their whistle with Wild Turkey® Rare Breed® landing in the UK for the first time. Bottling at barrel proof (uncut with water) gives an extra edge to the rich and silky bourbon whiskies that have aged for six, eight and 12 years in oak barrels at the distillery’s home in Lawrenceberg, Kentucky.

Already the number one barrel proof bourbon in the USA, Rare Breed has been carefully crafted, without compromise, by Jimmy Russell, the legendary 82 year old Master Distiller of Wild Turkey (in his home town, Jimmy is known as the ‘Bourbon Buddha’). The result is an exceptionally rich full-bodied bourbon with sweet notes, spicy characteristics and a long, dried fruit finish. Attaining an easy-drinking bourbon at such a high alcohol strength (56.4% ABV) is no easy feat.

Commenting on the product, Jimmy’s son, and fellow Master Distiller, Eddie Russell said: “We’ve always liked to age our bourbons for longer than many other distillers and when it’s tried like this without water, you can really see why this makes sense. The Wild Turkey peppery, spicy characteristics burst out, but they’re sweetly rounded from the years of maturation in brand new oak barrels. Hell, it’s so smooth Jimmy keeps his in the freezer so he can serve it chilled without ice diluting it.”

Down The Road Beer Co. Announces New Addition to its Session Beer Lineup: Patchwork Kilt Scottish Ale

Down The Road Beer Co. Announces New Addition to its Session Beer Lineup: Patchwork Kilt Scottish Ale

EVERETT, MA – October 31, 2016 – Down The Road Beer Company is pleased to announce the Patchwork Kilt Scottish Ale, the newest addition to the company’s session beer lineup. This malt-forward beer is hauntingly complex with deep, rustic notes of dried fruit and fresh honey. Patchwork Kilt clocks in at 4.5% ABV, the perfect balance for taking the edge off without losing your wits. This Ale pours a dark copper with a creamy head. The nose is thick and almost bready with a faint hint of currants. On the palate, Kilt is smooth, almost silky, with a delicate, honeyed sweetness that gives way to roasty malt and a homely smokiness.

Each beer from Down The Road draws on a character from folklore often with an emphasis on the region from which the brew originates. The Patchwork Kilt is an homage to a ghost story, the Headless Drummer of Edinburgh Castle, perfect given its Halloween! .

The Patchwork Kilt was brewed under contract at Dorchester Brewing Company in Dorchester, MA. This is the first beer Down The Road has brewed at Dorchester Brewing Company, Boston’s first and only dedicated partnership brewing facility. In response to strong customer demand for its Fresh, Local and Inspired beer, Down The Road will be opening its own Taproom and Brewery in Everett, MA in early 2017 and is also expanding its contract brewing relationships. The company hopes to brew additional styles at Dorchester Brewing Company later this year while maintaining its existing brewing relationships. Down The Road will be the first Brewing Partner for Dorchester Brewing which opened in July 2016.

To celebrate this partnership and the release of Down the Road’s Patchwork Kilt Scottish Ale, the companies are hosting a release party at Dorchester Brewing Company at 1250 Massachusetts Avenue in Dorchester on Friday, November 4th from 6-11pm. The event will include complimentary traditional Scottish fare from The Haven in Boston, as well as Down the Road Beer merchandise specials. Partners from Down the Road will be on hand to serve up the Kilt. For more information about the event, visit www.downtheroadbrewery.com or www.dorchesterbrewing.com. Starting this week, the Patchwork Kilt will be sold at retail stores throughout eastern Massachusetts in 16oz cans and on tap at select establishments.

TropiCannon Citrus IPA Now Available Year-Round!

TropiCannon Citrus IPA Now Available Year-Round!
November 1, 2016
 
BALTIMORE, MD – Heavy Seas Beer is excited to announce the return of it’s popular Citrus IPA, TropiCannon, now available year-round. The product will be available in all states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed. The release party at the brewery will be in December. Exact date TBD.
 
TropiCannon is exploding with bright citrus aroma and flavor. Creating an exciting new variation on our flagship Loose Cannon, TropiCannon clocks in at the same 7.25% ABV as it’s cousin, but packs a full blast of blood orange, grapefruit, mango and lemon flavor. We’ve downplayed some of Loose Cannon’s piney-ness and amped up the citrus by swapping Centennial and Palisade hops for Amarillo and even more Simcoe. We’ve introduced dried grapefruit, orange and lemon peel in the brewing process and added mango, blood orange and more grapefruit post-fermentation.

“TropiCannon was a pleasant surprise for us in 2016,” says Heavy Seas Founder, Hugh Sisson. “It was originally planned as a limited release product, but so many people kept asking for it that we decided we needed to make it available on a year-round basis. At least for now. This is part of what makes the beer industry so fun!”

The product specs are:

Style: Citrus IPA

ABV: 7.25%

IBU: 45

Saint Arnold Brewing to Become Voter Headquarters on Election Day

Saint Arnold Brewing to Become Voter Headquarters on Election Day
Those who participate in Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold will get this great sticker.

After Voting, Chill at Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold

HOUSTON, November 1, 2016 – Saint Arnold Brewing Co. (www.saintarnold.com) is encouraging everyone to vote and then head to the brewery, which will serve as a safe haven on Election Day. The oldest craft brewery in Texas will open its doors on Tuesday, November 8th, for Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold, providing voters a sanctuary from politics. Not to be confused with the election night gatherings thrown by the political parties, Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold will be a strictly unplugged affair.

Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold will start at 11 a.m. at Saint Arnold Brewing Co., 2000 Lyons Avenue in Houston, and continue until after polls close on the West Coast. It will serve as a TV-free zone and feature beer specials and stickers for voters proclaiming, “I Survived Election Day 2016.” Voters over age 21 who show proof of voting can purchase their first pint for $1.

“We encourage everyone to vote, and after voting, the most important public service we can offer is a place for voters to shelter in place away from the stress, anxiety and talking heads,” said Lennie Ambrose, Saint Arnold Director of Marketing and Events. “Beer has a long history of bringing people together and fostering a sense of kinship, commonality and community, which is what Election Day Safe Haven at Saint Arnold is all about.”

Pollsters say feelings of stress and anxiety are shared by both political parties. A recent Pew Research Center survey of more than 4,500 adults found that nearly 60 percent of Americans on social media are stressed out by online political interactions. More than a third of social media users are “worn out” by the amount of political content they encounter. The sense of being worn out is not a partisan phenomenon – 38 percent of Democrats and 37 percent of Republicans describe themselves that way.

Santa Fe Brewing Company Makes the Move from Bottles to Cans

Santa Fe Brewing Company Makes the Move from Bottles to Cans

Santa Fe, New Mexico – Santa Fe Brewing Company (SFBC) is excited to announce that they have transitioned all of their everyday beers to cans, discontinuing all 12 oz. bottle packages effective immediately. This transition comes with other big news for the longest tenured brewery in New Mexico – the addition of a state-of-the-art canning line from manufacturer Catelli Food Technology (CFT).

Switching from bottles to cans was a decision to increase capacity, reliability, and quality, but SFBC couldn’t do it without an equipment upgrade. SFBC began canning back in 2010 with the release of their flagship Happy Camper IPA in 12-ounce cans, but their equipment and processes had limitations. Their new CFT Master Can Tronic RS 16 does many things the previous canning line and bottling lines could not, such as minimizing oxygen pickup to Mega Brewer levels. Reducing oxygen pick up increases shelf stability, resulting in beer that stays fresh longer.

Cans are superior to bottles in many other facets as well. The lighter weight of the cans means less expensive shipping and fewer shipments, reducing the brewery’s carbon footprint. They are also more portable and a better choice when recreating outdoors.

“The quality is much better with cans. You may not recognize the State Pen Porter, Pale Ale, or Nut Brown by their new package, but you will definitely remember your favorites by taste,” says SFBC owner Brian Lock.

Brewmaster Bert Boyce had this to say about the new line. “We can produce five times the number of cans per minute than we could previously. We can easily change over to a different style to meet more complicated needs. And the new line should be much more reliable from an uptime and quality perspective. Right now the canning line is purring along at about 140 cans per minute, but will able to fill much faster as the demand for our beers continues to grow.”

Dogfish Head Beer for Breakfast bottles debut this month, World Wide Stout returns

Dogfish Head Beer for Breakfast bottles debut this month, World Wide Stout returns

[Press Release:]

(Milton, DE) – Dogfish Head is delivering double the delight this holiday season with the release of two dark and delicious, winter seasonal stouts. Beer for Breakfast, a tricked out full-bodied stout, and World Wide Stout, a roasty, ageable port-like brew, will be available for hearty enjoyment in limited supply beginning November 7th.

Beer for Breakfast serves up a smorgasbord of thoughtfully sourced ingredients for the blue plate aficionado, all of which are to be savored in this flavorfully robust, cozy stout. Coffee, brown sugar, maple syrup, and a myriad of additional yummy ingredients provide a good mornin’ foundation for this breakfast themed, feast of a brew. The iconic star of the Beer for Breakfast stout is Rapa Scrapple – a classic Mid-Atlantic staple to the most important meal of the day. Scrapple is affectionately described as an ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ type of meat as it’s a patty made from pork scraps, cornmeal and spices. “The recipe for our original breakfast beer Chicory Stout, just turned 21 this year. Legal drinking age. To mark this momentous occasion we have taken a couple decades experience brewing with culinary goodness and combined our favorite pure, all-natural breakfast ingredients into a beer that we will think you will agree is the most important meal of the day,” said Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder and president. Clocking in at 7.4% ABV and 30 IBU’s, dark beer aficionados will enjoy the aromatic notes of coffee and smoke, subtle maple and spice.

Rich, roasty and complex, World Wide Stout is arriving for an encore just in time for winter coziness this holiday season. Brewed with a bulk-ton of barley, this ageable ale clocks in at 15-20% ABV and has a depth more in line with a fine port or a rich madeira. World Wide debuted in the winter of 1999, and the staying power of this brew is indisputable. “Like Fort and 120 Minute IPA, World Wide Stout only gets better in its golden years. Allow it to mature in your beer cellar and you’ll find the heat of the booze fades into the background and the port notes and roastiness take over and merge harmoniously into a timeless aged ale”, said Calagione.

Beer for Breakfast and World Wide Stout will be available on taps and retail shelves in D.C. and the 30 states that currently provide delicious DFH beers. Savor these stouts with someone you love. For more information, visit dogfish.com.

Two Roads to open second facility dedicated to sours and barrel-aging in Stratford, CT

Two Roads to open second facility dedicated to sours and barrel-aging in Stratford, CT

[Press Release:]

(Stratford, CT) – Two Roads Brewing Company of Stratford, CT today announced the expansion of their brewing campus with the planned addition of a 25,000 square foot sour and barrel-aging brewery. Situated on 2.5 acres of newly acquired land adjoining the existing brewery, this $12 million facility will feature a 50 barrel ROLEC brewhouse, foudres, a coolship, and storage for 2000 wood barrels. It will also have a tasting room that can accommodate 120 visitors overlooking a wetlands preserve.

Two Roads CEO Brad Hittle said, “with our sour beer program growing and gaining accolades, including the recent gold medal for our Hexotic brand in the Belgian Style Lambic or Sour category at the Great American Beer Festival, and with our existing brands growing rapidly, we felt this was the right time to expand into a new facility. This will increase our overall capability to produce unique, rare and delicious beers while protecting our main brewery from any wild yeast cross-contamination.”

Partner Phil Markowski also highlighted that his new role as Master Brewer will remove him from the day-to-day brewing operations at Two Roads and will free up his time to fully concentrate on new product development as well as quality and brewing innovations at both brewing facilities. “I couldn’t be more proud about our beers and my team of brewers, and am extremely excited about this new horizon for Two Roads and for me personally. Having a first-class barrel aging and souring brewery at my hands is a dream come true,” Markowski commented.
