For a beverage that mixes it up, try Spodee Wine for a singular experience. Spodee takes wine to a new level, with its origins dating back to the depression and its unique blend of spices, moonshine, and special herbs. Even the old time milk bottle Spodee comes in crashes out of the traditional with an old time appeal for a new age man.
I have discovered the Yoo-Hoo of wine.
It is called Spodee, and I found it at the wine store today. You can see why it caught my eye: It just LOOKS classy.
Though many distilleries both large and small have been producing an array of innovative spirits, there are a handful that have truly pushed the envelope. These brands are experimenting with exotic ingredients and unusual combinations, which has led to the creation of whole new categories of liquor. Here are a few unique bottlings to look for.
You know us. We're always looking for something new and cool to offer to you. We were out front on the artisanal lollipop thing before it was cool (Capo13 has a bunch of them if you've got an oral fixation to address!). Wicked awesome lil bit spicy jalapeno chips? Yeah, we were there first, too. (By the way, it's totally coincidental that these two artisanal delights are from Seattle and Stowe, Vermont, respectively. Has nothing at all to do with me having been a cook in both those towns over the years. Nope. Totally not related. Swearsies.)

Though most your assets are staunchly protected in various accounts and safety deposit boxes in an bevy of undisclosed locations in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands, your investments here have taken a thorough whooping. Drink your cares away the old fashioned way with Spodee ($12.00), wine with a kick, fresh from White Mule Farms. Those friendly hooch-masters in Washingtonville, New York at America’s oldest winery have revived Spodee, a drink first concocted during the Great Depression. Back then, it was made of homemade country wine, strong backwoods liquor, and whatever happened to be sitting around, like fruits, juices, herbs, even soda pop. Today, you can enjoy Spodee straight of of the milk bottle it’s packaged in, as a Spodee Manhattan, “Spodee and Sody,” or in one of the many recipes listed on their website (Spodee Short Ribs, anyone? Or how about a Kiwi-Strawberry Spoderita?). Because when your 401k is down, there’s nothing like 36 proof wine to bring your spirits right back up.
