Boodles London Dry Gin ($25) is a perfectly proper London Dry Gin that is very mixable in everyone’s favorite classic and contemporary gin cocktails. It does not contain any citrus botanicals – a practical decision made in pursuit of a well-balanced cocktail, since most gin cocktails have a citrus garnish or ingredient. It’s completely British made – from the wheat, to the distilling to the packaging.
Creyente Mezcal Joven ($50) is a brand new mezcal that recently launched for the summer with an unprecedented union of two 100% agave mezcals from two separate regions of Oaxaca: the rich soils of Tlacolula, and the wild, mountainous terrain of Yautepec. It’s created by Pedro Mateo and Mijail Zarate, a pair of legendary mezcaleros with individual styles who worked together on this ultra-premium brand.
Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia ($150) is a result of a family tradition passed down 10 generations through the Cuervo family line, resulting in the finest extra añejo tequila ever made. It was first released to the public in 1995 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Cuervo family. The bottle comes inside of a wooden box that is adorned with the work of a Mexican artist, each year displaying a different artist hand-chosen by a member of the Cuervo family.
