Fall is in full swing and winter is right around the corner. This time of year we start to think about adding darker colors to the wardrobe and darker spirits to our home bar set-ups. We’ve pulled together a collection of our favorite dark spirits that are perfect for entertaining guests or enjoying on a chilly day.
Knob Creek has a history of making outstanding bourbon and their rye offering is no exception. Artfully crafted and “patiently aged” this rye whiskey adds the perfect amount of spice to any cocktail and can be equally enjoyed on the rocks.
Cruzan Single Barrel is a staple among rum lovers and is perfect for entertaining guests as it makes a great addition to mixed drinks and cocktails. Each bottle boasts a blend of vintage rums aged for up to 12 years and is one of the smoothest rums we’ve tried.
Hailing from the town of Kilbeggan in Ireland the company was founded in 1757 and boasts the title of world’s oldest distillery. Kilbeggan proves that experience makes all the difference. Hints of honey and nougat are perfect for a cool weather drink.
Cruzan really set out to change the spiced rum market and they’ve succeeded with Cruzan 9. An aged rum with a unique mix of 9 spices including; allspice, vanilla, pepper, ginger, mace, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and juniper berry. Great for cocktails or to include on your next dessert menu.
