Imbibe Magazine's Drink of the Week highlights Spodee

06/01/2012
Case Study Image

From the spirits innovator behind Hendrick’s gin, Sailor Jerry rum and the Art in the Age’s line of craft distillates comes today’s Drink of the Week—Spodee. Modeled after a Depression-era hooch of the same name, Spodee is a mix of red wine, herbs and spices and unaged whiskey. The name is a little goofy, but the taste is seriously delicious with flavors similar to a spice-forward sweet vermouth, but with a slight chocolate edge on the finish (think Tootsie Roll). It’s great on its own over a few ice cubes, or try it in a “Spodee & Sody” with an equal measure of cola. It’s currently available on shelves in Pennsylvania and New Jersey (with expanded distribution expected in the coming months), but it ships nationwide from select web retailers. $9/500 ml., superwinewarehouse.com

Art in the Age SAGE premieres at LA's Greenbar Collective!

Art In The Age has brought us delicious liquors: Root, Snap, and Rhuby (Rhubarb Tea!) so far… and it was amazing to meet them at their organic distillery (GreenBar Collective) in downtown LA last week to try the fourth flavor, Sage! And not to play favorites, but Sage is definitely coming in as my favorite after Root! It’s delicious ~ especially in the Sageside (SAGE, simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and mint) that renowned bartender, Charlotte Voisey, created! They describe it as “Instilled with organic botanicals including thyme, rosemary, lavender, fennel and, of course, sage. Warm on the tongue with a dry and splendidly smooth finish. Inspiring aroma with floral, woodsy notes. A deliciously unique way to reinvent vodka or gin-based cocktails.”

Brendan O'Toole proves 'Gansett and Baseball are the perfect combination

05/28/2012
Case Study Image

It's easy to forget around here, but baseball isn't a universal religion. In fact, there are plenty of people for whom baseball isn't even so much as a passing fancy. Sad, perhaps, but true. When dealing with such folk, there's really only one option: direct exposure to live gameplay. This weekend, my girlfriend and I hosted a friend from New York (don't worry, not a Yankee fan, nor a fan of any team at all). Said friend is among the non-baseballing folk. No interest in the sport, nor much in the way of knowledge thereof. She is, however, of a curious nature, and enjoys learning new stuff.
