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

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

CVS CLOWN VENICE BEACH

Venice, California, walking down the ocean promenade is half the fun, as there is so much more to see if you walk east. Main Street has the Clown in a Dress, nicknamed “Ballerina Clown” or “Clownerina.” It’s a ballerina clown in a dress, wearing over-sized white gloves and a red-nosed clown face. It is a Jonathan Borofsky’s creation made in 1989, it’s 30 feet tall above the CVS.

The rumor is there is an electric motor that makes the right leg execute a slow kick forward. It was turned off in 1990 as building tenants complained that it was too noisy. It was restored in 2014, and now the CVS Clown in Venice Beach kicks between 1pm and 6pm daily. Stop by it makes a great video and most people have not seen the clown in action.

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.

HANDCRAFTED ROCA PATRÓN SILVER TEQUILA REVIEW

ROCA PATRÓN SILVER, this tequila really did surprise me, I did a taste test against a handful of other silver tequila brands including the regular PATRÓN SILVER and ROCA PATRÓN came out on top not just with me but with two friends that were doing the blind tasting with me.

So here we have it, ROCA PATRÓN is a handcrafted 100% de agave tequila. After doing a bit of research I found out that this version of PATRÓN uses the finest weber blue agave that this company has available. Their finest agave is all used on the ROCA brand. They slow roast their Weber Blue Agave and then crush it with a two ton tahona stone wheel, the original/traditional way to crush agave. The juice is then fermented and distilled with the agave fibers. All this adds to a very complex taste with earthy tones and a long smooth finish. I highly recommend the ROCA PATRÓN SILVER, another sign is when it’s the first empty bottle on the table. I found a great price online if you want to order bottle Liquorama liquor store has a great price.

Urbano Cellars 2012 Barbera Award Winning Wine Review

This wine was a bit lighter than the bold blackberry and plumb taste that is evident, it is light on tannins and has a nice acidity very well balanced with a nice long finish, and I highly recommend it for any night of the week.

Facts
Alcohol 14.2%
Brix at harvest 24
PH at harvest 3.65
Harvest date 10/11/12
Bottling 4/3/14Appellation: Clements Hills
Vineyard: Lewis Ranch
Vintage: 2012
Composition: 100% Barbera
Vinification: Grapes were hand sorted, de-stemmed and transferred to 1 ton open bins where it cold-soaked for about 2-3 days before it began primary fermentation with native or naturally occurring yeast from the vineyard. The must was punched down by hand 2-3 times a day. The wine was aged, with minimal racking, in a mixture of mostly neutral French and American oak barrels for about 18 months.
Awards: Gold Medal Winner 2014 Artisan Awards

This wine would go well with rich cheese dishes to a simple pizza or something from the grill, I once again do recommend the 2014 Barbera from Urbano Cellars.
