Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, a spirits company from Pennsylvania, is somewhere in the middle of craft spirit-making and history, and we’re all over it. We sampled two of their classics – ROOT and SNAP.
Daily News eater/drinker Drew Lazor shows you what to pick up this Fall at Art In The Age.
Guys! Art In The Age is in LA!! How exciting?! They’ll be having a drinks and there will be live jazz and it will all be happening at Glendale’s Neat.
Wondering what Meal Ticket godfather Drew Lazor has been up to since his departure a few months back? Well, it appears as though he's taken up a bit of modeling to supplement his career in food writing.
Check out his fall fashion spread over at Philly Thrillist. Keen observers will notice that Lazor is strutting his stuff at Art in the Age, because, well, there has to be some sort of food and drink angle, right? Now, we're just wondering about the lack of Art in the Age cocktail accessorizing in this particular shoot.
It’s amazing what the World of spirits are doing out there, mixologists from all around the world are concocting combinations that go beyond the classics and cleverly updated with a new and modern edge. It gives me a false sense of confidence that only becomes seemingly worse with more cocktails, but sometimes I say to myself “I bet I could do THAT at home!”
There’s been more failures than wins but let’s be honest, nobody loses when you’re testing out cocktails. When the Art in the Age sent over a bottle of their Rhubarb Tea, happy dances ensued and lots of “taste-testing” went on. Their beautiful branding from their watercolor illustrations to their elegant bottle design really made me enjoy the product so much more, it’s all about the details people and they hit this one out of the park.
For the fourth installment of its line of craft spirits, Art in The Age will release its version of a “colonial garden gin”: SAGE. Like the other three spirits ROOT, SNAP and RHUBARB TEA, SAGE is sugar cane based, 80 proof and certified organic. SAGE is instilled with organic American botanicals including thyme, rosemary, lavender, fennel and, of course sage.
