Pallini Peachcello White Peach Liqueur is produced by Pallini, a family-run company known for its specialty liqueurs and syrups. Originally founded in Antrodoco, Italy in 1875, Pallini moved its facilities to Rome in the 1920’s. The company is still family-run to this day, passing the trade down to at least 5 generations.

The Botanist Gin

The first things that come to mind when I imagine the Islay region of Scotland are the distinct smoke and seawater flavors of Scotch whisky the local distilleries have spent many decades perfecting. But the Bruichladdich distillery are attempting branch out while still highlighting the natural beauty of the Islays with their relatively new offering, The Botanist Gin.

Introduced in 2011, The Botanist is an Islay dry gin from the historic distillery, Bruichladdich. They’re well known for Scotch whiskies like the Octomore, one of the most heavily peated Scotches in the world but the Botanist is a much less intimidating spirit.

Bottle of Cazadores Tequila Reposado sitting on a wooden table, in front of a mixed white and wooden background

Cazadores Tequila Reposado

Cazadores Tequila Reposado is produced in Arandas – a town in the Highland region of Jalisco, Mexico.

All of Cazadores tequilas are made using double distillation and double fermentation. According to […]

Froggy B Vodka

Something I really enjoy about chain liquor stores, like Total Wine or Bevmo, is browsing the huge number of spirits I’ve never seen before. I always leave myself some time to browse the shelfs but rarely impulse buy anything. But I was so enamored with the Froggy B Vodka label that I had to have it. I’ll pretty much buy anything that reminds me of Gex, the mediocre video game series from the late 90’s.

Froggy B Vodka is a straight forward, wheat-based vodka from France. The organic wheat comes from the Beauce region but the rest of the distilling is done in copper stills in the Cognac region. In fact, Froggy B is certified organic by […]
