Scotch distiller Glen Scotia has announced the release of a special whisky for the Campbeltown Malts Festival 2021.
The creation of the 10-year-old limited-edition single malt whisky was overseen by Glen Scotia's distillery manager and master distiller, Iain McAlister.
It uses a series of unpeated distillates from 2009 to 2011, which were matured in first-fill Bourbon barrels. The casks were then vatted together before a five-month finishing period in first-fill Bordeaux red wine casks from Medoc.
Named the Glen Scotia Campbeltown Malts Festival 2021 Limited Edition, the whisky has been bottled at cask strength of 56.1% ABV and is non-chill filtered.
The annual Campbeltown Malts Festival celebrates the rich heritage of Scotland's fifth and smallest whisky region, which was once home to more than 30 distilleries. Due to the ongoing restrictions around the coronavirus pandemic, this year's festival will be held virtually and is taking place from 7 June.
Claire Sprouse has made it her mission to model what a progressive bar culture can look like. She considers her bar and restaurant, located in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights, “a community space in the truest sense of the word,” meaning that rather than simply providing the surrounding neighborhood with an outlet for food and beverage, her brick-and-mortar functions as a forum for communication and advocacy.
Having always been interested in the concept of sustainability, both environmental and political, Sprouse opens her doors to all kinds of community-based activities, including weekly postcard-to-voter events, political candidate meet-and-greets, informational panels on recycling and water use, and fundraisers for the nearby community garden.
By expanding the boundaries of what a bar and restaurant can be, Sprouse says her business has benefited not only financially—finding new revenue streams and audience—but holistically; by offering her space as a forum for conversations, she’s noticed not only guests engaging through a new lens of curiosity, but the surrounding community recognizing opportunities to amplify one another’s missions and voices beyond the bar. “I’m not trying to create a sustainable bar-restaurant so I can hold the title for most sustainable,” says Sprouse, “but to show that it can be done and doesn’t have to be at the sacrifice of anything else.”

When you hear the words Buffalo Trace Distillery, probably the very last spirit that comes to mind is vodka. Well, maybe tequila, but vodka is definitely down at the bottom of that list. It may surprise you then to know that not only does the world-famous whiskey distillery produce a vodka, but its master distiller, Harlen Wheatley, even put his name on it (and his face, actually). His eponymous wheat-based Wheatley Vodka isn’t some afterthought, either. It’s made in small batches and distilled ten times on its own micro-still before being triple filtered. Buffalo Trace has clearly figured out how to make great whiskey. But what about vodka?
The nose is fresh and earthy with a healthy dose of camphor and damp clay. There’s really none of the classic Band-Aid quality here at all, which is rather surprising. It’s subtle, but there’s also just enough lemon peel and vanilla extract to brighten things and offer up a decent amount of complexity — at least for a vodka. The palate is clean and crisp with a creamy body and an airy, marshmallow sweetness. A soft heat hits mid-palate, easing the tastebuds into a lightly saccharine finish accented with a bit of lemon zest. Mr. Wheatley’s expertise clearly extends to clear and brown spirits alike.

A new vermouth brand marrying French grapes with herbs and spices frmo the ancient Silk Road is going on sale in the UK.
Azaline Vermouth is an aromatised fortified wine, using Pinot Noir grapes grown in Burgundy and botanicals including juniper, gentian, cardamom, orange peel and saffron. The liquid is produced by Gabriel Boudier, a family-owned business primarily known for its liqueurs that has been operating since the 1870s.
The brand was launched by drinks entrepreneur Steve Drawbell, whose industry background includes work on innovation at Diageo. His intention behind Azaline was to 'create a journey' for drinkers along the Silk Road, an ancient trade route that connected Asia and Europe.
Its striking packaging was created by renowned design agency Stranger and Stranger.
Azaline is targeting two markets in particular: craft gin drinkers looking for a super-premium vermouth to enhance their cocktails, or wanting to explore lower-ABV options; and spritz drinkers looking for an alternative to still wines.

From its earliest iterations, the Paloma has been designed with adaptability in mind. In its simplest form, the refreshing Mexican cooler is just a straightforward trio of tequila, lime juice and grapefruit soda. Swap the bottle of Jarritos for grapefruit juice, simple syrup and soda water, and the sweet-tart highball will draw out even more fresh, citrusy aromas. Using the basics as inspiration, the tequila-grapefruit template can seamlessly transition from spicy to bitter to savory.
The combination of tequila and spice is well-documented as a perennial fan favorite on bar menus—and the Paloma is a key player in its popularity. T.J. Lynch’s Why Not, for example, incorporates layered dimensions of spice, with a five-chile molasses bringing heat (from ancho, pasilla, chipotle, guajillo and cayenne chile powders), bracing acidity by way of Cholula, and earthy, warming notes from cinnamon and cloves. Swapping the effervescent element for blended ice, Lynch turns the Mexican cooler into a frothy, frozen drink. In her Garden Paloma, Meaghan Dorman similarly leans on a steeped syrup to deliver chile heat. Spiced and sweetened with jalapeño-agave syrup and finished off with a dash of celery bitters to add depth and complexity, Dorman’s modifications are welcome tweaks to the fail-safe formula.
Did you know that Dallas was the official home of the frozen Margarita? According to VisitDallas, the city’s official destination marketing organization, Dallas restaurateur Mariano Martinez invented the frozen Margarita machine in 1971. The original machine now sits in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History next to Julia Child’s kitchen.
What inspired Mariano to invent one of the city’s most innovative contributions to American culture, and an easy way to render a frosty version of the popular cocktail? He says that he “just wanted to keep the doors of my restaurant open and my patrons and employees happy,” VisitDallas reports.
Mariano’s invention in turn inspired VisitDallas to launch the Margarita Mile experience and app in 2018. The Margarita Mile is a self-guided tour through Dallas’ distinct neighborhoods to sample its best and brightest Margaritas. As participants visit restaurants and check in on the app along the way, they earn points towards prizes.The post Dallas Celebrates 50 Years of Frozen Margaritas first appeared on Cheers.
RENO — Few people had ever heard of Tiehm’s buckwheat when conservationists filed a petition two years ago to list the desert wildflower as an endangered species.

A legislative committee on Thursday took the first step in setting up Nevada to host the first-in-the-nation presidential primaries by approving a bill that would push the Silver State to the front of the political line.
Assembly Bill 126, which passed out of the Assembly's Legislative Operations and Elections Committee on a party-line vote, would change Nevada’s caucus system to a primary system and set the date of the presidential primary as the first Tuesday in February. The bill now goes to the full Assembly for consideration.

Compass Box Whisky has simplified the label designs and names of two popular expressions in its core range.
The Artist Blend and Glasgow Blend, previously named the Great King Street collection, have been given a makeover by internationally renowned designers Stranger and Stranger. The new-look labels are designed to celebrate Edinburgh and Glasgow as hubs of originality and creativity and to pay homage to the golden age of blended whisky in the 19th century.
Artist Blend was irst created by Compass Box founder John Glaser in 2011, inspired by Victorian recipies and containing a higher proportion of single malt whisky than is typically found in modern blends. Its new label depicts the Scottish National Gallery, to embody Compass Box's creative spirit.
Glasgow Blend is designed in contrast to its counterpart, designed to represent the fearless, bold Glaswegian character. The peaty blend was devised by Glaser in 2014 and features a high malt content. Its new label depicts a statue of the Duke of Wellington, one of the city's most well-known landmarks.
Both whiskies are 43% ABV and are non-chill filtered with only natural colour. Each is available, priced £30.45 for a 70cl bottle, at compassboxwhisky.com.

WASHINGTON — Nearly 150 groups are calling on the Senate to eliminate the filibuster, saying it is a Jim Crow-era relic that can be used to block an upcoming voting rights bill and other priorities, and should be relegated to the “dustbin of history.”
In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer obtained by The Associated Press, the organizations indicated the matter takes on fresh urgency after passage of Georgia's more restrictive new elections law.

WASHINGTON — Democrats in Congress are trying to pass the first major gun control legislation in more than two decades with the support of President Joe Biden, who said Thursday that it is “long past time” to do so. But they are confronting a potentially insurmountable question over what rules should govern private sales and transfers, including those between friends and extended family, as they seek Republican votes.
A bipartisan Senate compromise that was narrowly defeated eight years ago was focused on expanding checks to sales at gun shows and on the internet. But many Democrats and gun control advocates now want almost all sales and transfers to face a mandatory review, alienating Republicans who say extending the requirements would trample Second Amendment rights.

BROWNSVILLE, Texas — Paying a smuggler, Edgar Mejia could afford to take only one child with him to the United States. He chose his 3-year-old “warrior” son, leaving his 7- and 12-year-olds with their mother in Honduras.
“Pitifully, I had use him like a passport to get here,” Mejia said last week after picking up milk from volunteers at a Brownsville, Texas, bus station for the last leg of their journey to join relatives in Atlanta. “I am here because of him.”

There will be no reckoning at the Republican National Committee.
Three months after former President Donald Trump helped incite a violent attack against Congress, the GOP is bringing hundreds of donors and several future presidential prospects to the former president's doorstep in south Florida. While a handful of Republican leaders hope to move past Trump's divisive leadership, the location of the invitation-only gathering suggests that the party, at least for now, is not ready to replace Trump as its undisputed leader and chief fundraiser.
