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.

Artisan Awards, Beer, Wine, Spirits, Mixers,

Artisan Awards For Artisan Wines, Beers & Spirits

Artisan Awards : a competition that showcases traditional made products from producers around the world. An annual event that assists suppliers with brand awareness, and helps bring consumer attention to artisan brands. Independently owned distillers, brewers, winemakers… enter their top brands and compete for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, not every brand is guaranteed to win a medal.
What makes a product qualify as artisan? If you have to ask more than likely it is not artisan. It’s not about the money as artisan brands make more than mass-produced brands. It’s not about the quantities as artisan brands gain popularity/sales each year. Artisan Awards is more about the skill, ingredients and traditional methods that goes into making the product.
Select judges will perform a blind tasting of all products submitted. Annual judging is highly respected as we hand pick the experts in each field according to skill. As the industry continues to grow year after year the artisan brands need to get the well-deserved attention for going the extra mile to insure the best possible product is made. If you want to be a judge please email info@artisanawards.com and let us know what category (i.e. wine, beer, spirits…).
Artisan Awards recognizes products made by people who truly love what they do- craftsmen, creating rare, handmade, organic, single barrel… products that keep consistency year after year trough traditional methods. Artisan Awards attracts consumers as each year the largest growing segment is artisan brands.
