Absinthe Ordininaire Liqueur

Much more a absinthe liqueur than a full on Absinthe.Decent for what it is and cheap enough to serve as a gateway absinthe that can dispense with the sugar cube ritual.

Absolut Cosmopolitan Kit

Overall an excellent cocktail kit with well considered and curated ingredients that actually yield a seriously delicious Cosmopolitan cocktail- something I did not think was possible.

Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch


One of the cheapest drinkable bourbons around . Usually can be found for $20 or so which is a steal these days for anything in a glass bottle and halfway decent.

Bottle Of Square 6 Whiskey by Evan WilliamsSquare 6 By Evan Williams


A well done high rye bourbon made in extremely small batches by Evan Williams in a one-barrel a day still at their new Evan Williams Bourbon Experience. Get it before it is hunted to extinction like the Buffalo Trace Experimental Series was years ago!

For those of you who are interested in Spirits Review and Myself, here is some  background… 

Who We Are: Spirits Review was founded in January of 2005 and now currently has approximately 250,000 hits and 17,000 unique visitors per week worldwide. We are a website – not a blog (but we also maintain a blog here)

What We Do: We review distilled spirits, bitters, beer, wine, mixers, garnishes, etc.,. We evaluate both on overall quality and also a price to value ratio. We also have sister sites  (under Construction) and which review bar ware and equipment of all types – both for home and commercial use and books on spirits, cocktails and alcohol related subjects respectively. We also travel widely as photojournalists to photograph and write about distilleries, breweries, bars, along with cocktail and spirit events, to show people where a product is made, who makes it, and where best to consume them.
