Ah, Halle Berry and 007: Definitely a classy pair. With flair in mind, this holiday channel your inner “Bond” and pair Brooklyn Gin, Bootlegger Vodka and Lillet to create: The Vesper. Makes for a cocktail that even Sean Connery and Daniel Craig would fancy.
Kick off the season in high gear with a Red Carpet Drink made with Brooklyn Gin and Bootlegger Vodka. And entertain friends and family with a Red Carpet Drink Gift (Click here to give the Gift of Brooklyn Gin & Bootlegger Vodka, available for purchase at River Road Wine).
“The Vesper is a nostalgic libation that’s popular now; a martini made famous by James Bond,” explains Brian Facquet, Founder & Distiller of Prohibition Distillery that manufactures Bootlegger Vodka. He continues: “Our vodka is well suited for this mixed drink and compliments Brooklyn Gin.”
Bootlegger is a super-premium, gluten free, all natural vodka using 100% NY State corn. Distilled in an old firehouse in Roscoe, NY. And a winner of The NY International Spirits Competition.
In fact, Brooklyn Gin also sits well with the cocktail enthusiast because of its clean, all natural taste. It’s hand crafted using only fresh citrus peels of Persian limes, Key limes, Eureka lemons and Navel oranges,” remarks Joe More >
Bruce Springsteen croons: “Santa Claus is comin’ to town… and ya better be good for goodness sakes!” So it’s time to pull out the good stuff. Enter Triple Eight Cranberry Vodka: Aptly suited for the festivities this season. (Click here to give the Gift of Triple Eight Cranberry Vodka, available for purchase at River Road Wine).
Located on Nantucket Island, the Triple Eight Distillery makes a wide range of ultra-premium spirits, all hand-crafted in small batches. Their spirits are a favorite on and off the island.
“Our market is expanding rapidly. We are in 16 states. And as of this week, Triple Eight Vodka is available in NJ,” remarks Jay Harman, President, Triple Eight Distillery. He adds: “Making a cranberry vodka with home-grown produce simply makes sense as it’s been cultivated on the island since the mid 1800’s.”
In fact: Triple Eight uses local, whole organic cranberries from Nantucket’s own Windswept Organic Farm. Master Distiller Dean Long selects the best fruit the island has to offer. The consumer experiences the authentic color and taste of real cranberry flavor. Triple Eight Cranberry Vodka is among the highest ranked cranberry vodka in The World Spirit Championship.
