The Brooklyn Spirits Book, The Long Island Bar & Tiki Night Tomorrow!

It’s no secret that this country is in the throes of a small batch, hand crafted spirits Renaissance. It seems like every week a new, independent distillery pops up in some remote part of the country. We’ve gone from about 70 to 700 distilleries in the United States in a little under 10 years. And nowhere is that feverish growth […]

Your Cocktail Just Got More Jewel Toned: Sorel Liqueur & Jack From Brooklyn

A few week’s back I had the opportunity to experiment with an exciting, new-ish liqueur on the market, Sorel. Officially, only a little over a year old, this Brooklyn-made liqueur with intense notes of clove, nutmeg and ginger, has actually been in the works for over 15 years.
