Greenhook Beach Plum Gin Liqueur is a lovely and decadent elixr. Plums, raisins, blackberries, and a healthy dollop of spice are on the nose and palate. It is sweet, savory loveliness! Get a tall glass, lots of ice, and top with lemonade. – Erik Guzinski, Wine & Spirits Consultant
If new and surprising flavors delight your palate, then Vicario Monk’s Secret might just be the herbal liqueur for you. A New World alternative to classics like Chartreuse, this complex liquid offers well-balanced and enticing layers of discovery in every sip. – Bambi Ray, Sales Manager
There is a movement percolating in the spirits world with small, artisanal producers making spirits entirely from scratch without any artificial or industrial ingredients. Does this mean better? Not always, but it definitely does with Doc Herson’s Bitter Liqueur, especially in terms of flavor. – Nima Ansari-Bahmani, Spirits Buyer
Spruce up your home bar with a bottle of Rossi D’Angera Bitter Liqueur. Notes of bee pollen, peppermint, and tree bark compliment the classic orange aperitif profile. Medium-bodied, bitter, and not overly sweet—reach for it for your next Negroni or afternoon spritz. – Sara Sparks, Sales Manager
Whoever thought the world of spirits was boring and predictable can safely assume those days are over. Fallen Pony Blend is a “freeform spirit” from Noma alums, Lars Williams and Mark Emil Hermansen, that’s made with obscure ingredients and (very) experimental distilling techniques. There has never been a more exciting time to be drinking spirits—and this bottle is a perfect example why. – Nima Ansari-Bahmani, Spirits Buyer
