THE BEST Drinks

Surly Beer

Surly Beer

Tired of crappy beer? Surly Beer not only redresses your grievances but is brash enough to serve premium beer in a can; it’s pretty good stuff, but too bad it’s only served in Minnesota.

Sake2Me

Sake2Me

Despite its flippant name, Sake2Me is steeped in tradition, made from premium grade rice and water with a 200 year-old brewer; it’s a light drink with a low 7% alcohol content.

Handpresso

Handpresso

If you rely on a daily java fix to get by, Handpresso is a portable handheld espresso maker that generates 16 bar pressure and holds 50 ml of water; it relies on single serving pods.

USB Port Wine

USB Port Wine

It’s amazing what word play can do: USB Port is a 2007 Zinfandel with geektastic packaging; it sports a USB symbol and a binary tree that decodes to Peltier Station, the makers of the wine.

(ri)1 Whiskey

(ri)1 Whiskey

(ri)1 Whiskey hopes to capitalize on the growing popularity of straight rye whiskey; it’s a cocktail couture brand with a swank, modern bottle and a slightly spicy flavor to match.

Balblair Highland Whisky

Balblair Highland Whisky

Whittled down to a handful of years, Balblair Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky is hand-selected from only the best vintages; it has a smooth, creamy and long-lasting finish.

Video: Duff Beer

Here’s to you, Barney: although it seems to be available only in Europe, iFoods.tv’s Niall Harbison gives a glowing video review of Duff Beer above; it’s brewed in Belgium.

Firestarter Vodka

Firestarter Vodka

We’re suckers for gimmicky packaging, which is why Firestarter Vodka has us all fired up. It’s shaped like an extinguisher and comes complete with a locking pin, trigger and nozzle.

Jagermeister

Jagermeister

Zero degree chilling, LED backlit logos and a working tap handle: the Jagermeister is perfect for parties; heck, they even have a profit calculator. Optional: matching Jager Bomb cups.

The Last Drop Whisky

The Last Drop Whisky

48 years in the making, The Last Drop is a run of 1,347 bottles blended from 82 whiskies, which come from many distilleries that no longer exist; they’re bottled straight from the cask.

Jean-Marc XO Vodka

Jean-Marc XO Vodka

Scoring 97 points, Jean-Marc’s XO Vodka is premium-level liquor; distilled nine times with four French wheat grains, this unflavored vodka is super smooth with hints of star anise.

Vampyre Vodka

Vampyre Vodka

Just in time for Halloween: Drinkhacker has a surprisingly sanguine review of Vampyre Vodka; the 80-proof drink is 3x distilled with a smooth finish; the Red variant makes a great mixer.

The Sopranos Wine

007 Smirnoff Black Vodka

007 Smirnoff Black Vodka

Although we prefer the Seamaster Diver watch, this Quantum of Solace branded Smirnoff Black Vodka should be more accessible; it’ll come in a limited edition cocktail shaker.

Wines of Substance

Wines of Substance

Its hip, periodic table-style labeling aside, Walla Walla-base Waters Winery’s “Wines of Substance” is not bad for the price, with the Merlot and Chardonnay being surprisingly good.

10 Cane Rum

10 Cane Rum

Drinkhacker has a review up of 10 Cane Rum; popular at bars, this rum is made from sugar juice. Not for straight shots, its versatile, smoky flavor is best mixed with cocktails.

Skybar Wine System

The Skybar Wine Preservation System is like a kegger for crushed grapes, with three independently chilled chambers, separate pouring spouts and vacuum tech to preserve freshness.

Zacapa Rum

Made from crushed sugarcane and then aged at 8,000 feet in Guatemela, Zacapa Rum is a premium rum. It has a smooth finish and a complex flavor, with hints of hazelnut and caramel.

Heavy Water Vodka

Heavy Water Vodka

Inspired by deuterium-laced heavy water, Heavy Water’s vodka is made from Swedish winter wheat. The water is not filtered like other brands, giving it lush, nuanced taste that sets it apart.

Zyr Vodka

Zyr Vodka

Zyr Vodka’s resume reads like an Ivy League graduate, with 96-100 points and a 5 star review with Spirit Journal. This 9:5:3 ratio vodka is surprisingly versatile with a strong bite.

It’s like two sins for the price of one: Tabasco has teamed up with Heaven Hill Distilleries to release Tabasco Spicy Tequila. Oh, the Mojitos and Sangritas we’ll make with this…
