Every year, the moment comes when the crisp air loses its autumn novelty and turns into a get-your-coat-out-of-the-back-closet chore (although here in San Diego, admittedly, we have it much easier than other spots!). However, we’re pretty sure that any sort of colder weather is a terrific excuse to break out the hot cocktails!
At just 50 milliliters a pop, liquor miniatures or mini-bottles (or whatever you like to call them) make for great stocking stuffers – regardless of whether you’re choosing something family members can indulge in later or want to surprise them with something perfect for tossing in their morning mimosa (or coffee) right then and there; it is the holidays, after all!
There’s nothing better than a sweet, caramel-y cocktail to ring in the holiday season! The Crown Royal Whisky brand’s take on Salted Caramel is a subtle, creamy, salty-sweet whiskey that lends itself quite well to holiday-inspired cocktails, and there isn’t a bad cocktail that could be made with this as an ingredient.
It's officially Fall, and as we get closer and closer to Halloween, it’s time to start busting out all things pumpkin – and that includes alcohol! We’ve put together a list of our favorite specialty pumpkin-flavored alcohols that are actually worth the purchase.
Not Your Father’s Bourbon is a new craft whiskey/bourbon on the market (it was recently released in 2017) known for being approachable, highly drinkable, and boasting a ridiculously smooth finish. And that’s not all! The story behind this new spirit goes back several years to the small town of Wauconda, Illinois.
A big part of the community experience at KnB is our weekly tastings. Distillers, spirit makers, and mixologists come from all over the world to showcase their spirits – in the past few months, we've had representatives of Jameson from Ireland, Fords Gin from New York, and Comandon Cognac all the way from France! Events and tastings at KnB are a great way to sample something new and experience a spirit you may not otherwise be able to try, and we generally feature different spirits each week.
Whiskey is one of the most popular spirits in the United States today, second only to vodka, and there are countless varieties and brands that showcase the best from each region – the four biggest manufacturers of the spirit today are Scotland, Ireland, the US, and Japan (first fun fact: it’s spelled “whisky” in Scotland and Japan, and “whiskey” everywhere else).
