Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka 100% Colorado Review

Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka is distilled in small batches using a state of the art still. The source used for this vodka is sweet corn from the Olathe region of Colorado. Farmers here use snowmelt to irrigate. The corn kernels are smaller than the kernel of regular corn and have a concentrated flavor. It is analogous to the size of wine grapes to table grapes. The cost is much higher, but the quality of the corn is exceptional. Harvesting of the corn is done without pesticides and the corn is naturally Gluten Free. This corn is usually hand picked rather than machine harvested because of the soft nature of the corn.
The water used in irrigation, distilling and to cut the distillate begins as snowmelt and for the processing and cutting is then purified. While many distilleries use purified water, few begin with anything as pristine as ours.
The filtration process is another big difference between this vodka and others. They filter the vodka once and coarsely, they make it this way to leave more of the oils and to have a more flavorful vodka. This creates a weightier vodka.
The corn is brought in whole kernels from the farms and milled on site. This is important because pre-milled grains can become oxidized and lose much of the flavor. It is fermented right after milling sent straight to the fermenters to again guard against oxidation. The fermented liquid is then batch distilled. Unlike continuous distillation this leaves more of the original character. It is distilled correctly one time, and the heads and tails are cut. We cut 30% of the distillate to ensure only the heart of the distillate remains.
The label features mountains a depiction of the Maroon Bells and Pyramid Peak in the Colorado Rockies, which is a backdrop to the distillery.

Highly recommended order a bottle of Anders’ Handcrafted Vodka here

Reed’s Ginger Brew Review & Moscow Mule Recipe

Moscow Mule Cocktail has and remains very popular so I wanted to add my review on Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew, a staple ingredient in the Moscow Mule.

Moscow Mule Cocktail Recipe
1-1/2 ounces vodka
Cold Ginger Beer
Garnish Lime Wedge
Copper Mug
Pour the vodka into a copper mug filled with ice, squeeze lime into mug. Fill with Ginger Beer.
Reed’s Extra Ginger Brew is the same recipe as Original Ginger Brew, but has 26 grams (instead of 17 grams) of fresh ginger root for a stronger taste. The other ingredients are the same lemon, lime, honey, cane sugar, pineapple, herbs and spices.

Reed’s Stronger Ginger Brew Here is a list of ingredients from the bottle, Sparkling Filtered Water (Sweetened by a blend of raw cane sugar, pineapple juice from concentrate and honey), Fresh Ginger Root, Lemon and Lime Juices from concentrate and spices. Non Alcoholic. Free of Preservatives, Caffeine, Gluten & GMO’s.

Here is the story of Chris Reed who founded Reed’s Ginger Brew. He first decided to create a ginger ale made with fresh ginger in 1987, he went to UCLA library, pre internet, to research into the early formulas for soft drinks. He figured if he went back far enough in time he would find recipes that worked with real ingredients. Then he found a book from the 1780’s, before the first bottling plants even existed, that talked about brewing sodas from whole roots, spices and fruit juices in the kitchen. Chris knew he had found what he was looking for. These early soft drinks, besides being delicious, were also used as herbal tonics. After two years of much trial and error, Reed’s Original Ginger Brew was ready to launch.
Reed’s brews are a delicious revival of the lost brewing art of brewing sodas. Each small batch is hand crafted with pride, carefully brewed and aged by expert brew masters. They choose only the finest fresh herbs, roots, spices and fruits. They don’t use any preservatives or artificial anything in our beverages. And in my opinion Reed’s Brews make the best cocktails.

The Mixing Glass

The Mixing Glass Liquor Store Costa Mesa, CA

Have you ever dreamed of a liquor store that only has products you love. I found that store, The Mixing Glass is a craft cocktail lifestyle store, that sells the hardest to find spirits, best vintages and the most relevant books and bartending tools. If that is not enough to get you into the store they also carry hard to find mixes, bitters and more bitters. It’s not a big store, they don’t carry every brand, the carry the brands that bartenders and industry experts are drawn to, not high priced but highly regarded brands. And best of all they have a knowlegeble approachable staff to help make sure you get what you came in for.

Today as I stopped by to stock up for the weekend they had a celebrity guest, Forrest Cokely one of the most knowledgeable people in the spirits industry worldwide. He’s producer of the blog a drink with forrest… he has been a judge in top spirits competitions Miami Rum Renaissance, San Diego Spirits Festival, Craft Competition… He has been invited to distilleries worldwide and has helped produce respectable successful brands. He’s the guy you can ask about a product on the shelf and learn everything there is to know about that spirit. Forrest has a following and for all the right reasons, people are content drinking highly marketed spirits. Yet after “a drink with forrest…” or after a recommendation from Forrest, you become knowledgeable about what your drinking. Craft, artisan, small batch… there not just words put on a bottle for marketing, they are descriptive words that are used in describing unique spirits brands. Unique spirits brands are not in every liquor store and almost never at your local pharmacy. They are rare, handcrafted and mostly bottled by hand, they make great gifts as hard to find brands add value and yes they are worth the extra stop even on a Friday in rush hour.

So what did I purchase today you ask, my usual for the wife and for me ArteNOM Añejo 1146 Tequila, yes I could tell you more about this tequila than my go to tequila I have been drinking for over a decade, thank you Forrest.

The Mixing Glass is located at The OC Mix, Orange County’s Acclaimed shopping destination, located within Costa Mesa’s SoCo and home to many locally owned boutiques, specialty food spots and a weekly farmers market.
3313 Hyland Ave, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

Panamá Pacific Rum 23 Year Review

Panamá-Pacific Rum 23 Year, is a newly imported rum is amazing, it jumped out at me as I have not seen the label before. I learned that it was just imported into the USA so if you can’t find it ask your local liquor store to order it for you.

Panamá-Pacific Rum is crafted in Panamá, from local ingredients, the sugarcane is processed, fermented, distilled and aged in the midst of the sugar cane fields. As an honored testimonial, this rum is never chill-filtered– no caramel color and no artificial flavoring. The 23 year age statement represents the minimum age of the expression.
