Here’s all you need to know about what happened this week in booze, and what’s happening this weekend.
Stuff We’re Excited About (aka What’s New At Steve’s Junction)
Corksicle Canteens – I discovered these while on vacation in Florida, and had to find a way to bring them in. They hold a full bottle of wine and can keep it cold for up to 25 hours. It’s a great way to be able to bring what you want to summer activities without the worry of bringing glass! It also keeps beverages hot for 12 hours, making it a perfect option for Glogg or spiked hot chocolate in the colder months. – Karen
Barr Hill Gin and Vodka – Every once in a while a brand rep comes in with a new product that absolutely blows me away. Using honey as a base for the vodka, and adding a small amount of honey to their gin creates texture, body, and character unlike any others in their respective categories. I know what I’ll be sipping on this weekend and I highly recommend that you do the same. Check out their site to learn more and scroll through the countless number of awards they’ve earned despite only being around a few years! – Kevin
Meloz Tasting – Speaking of honey-based spirits, Dominic DeSano, founder/owner of Meloz Domel, will be here sampling some of his unique mead-based distillate this Friday, August 18th from 4-6pm. Made right here in Madison this is something that everyone needs to try. Stop in, say hi, and support a great local product!
Sunflower Days 2017 – Unrelated to our industry but something everyone should experience. It’s been going on all week but if you haven’t had a chance to pop over yet make sure you do in the next couple days. The never-ending field of sunflowers is absolutely stunning and makes for great photo ops! It’s right down the road so make sure to pop in and say hi after 😉 .
