Five Undiscovered Premium Spirits Yet To Be Discovered I have a booze ritual. Whether it’s at a bar before I order a cocktail, or at a liquor store where I’mre-stocking my home bar, I always do a scan of the shelves. Sure, I’m familiar with the big name brands, theeasily recognizable bottles and names, and the ones that I enjoy the most will always be staples in my drinking regimen. However, this scan of the shelves isn’t to make sure that they’re fully stocked with the classics; it’s to discover something new.

Everyone has their go-to spirits. That vodka that will never go out of style, the bourbon that makes your heart sing every time you take a sip; these aren’t going anywhere and for that, we’re quite grateful. But justbecause old reliable is present and accounted for, doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t always be on the lookout for something new and different. Trying new spirits that are new to the market or maybe just new to your knowledge is important to expand your taste for alcohol in general, so the next time you find yourself sitting at a bar or going into the local liquor store, look for something new on the shelves. And in the true spirit of consumerism, attempt to try before you buy. Most bartenders (if they aren’t too busy) will give you a sample of something before you officially order it, so take advantage of the opportunity to try a new booze whenever you can. If you’re lucky, you just may discover your new favorite. Cheers!

    Widow Jane Bourbon

    I'm confused by Snooth's remark about it being the perfect Rye for your next Old Fashioned or Manhattan?. If it's a Bourbon it can't be a Rye. Yes you can make Bourbon with Rye but it's still called Bourbon because it's main ingredient is CORN. To be classified as a true Rye Whiskey the principal ingredient has to be RYE.
    And I'm confused by the label. It says Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey. But it's really not, since it is distilled and bottled in New York. It may be Kentucky STYLE, since at least they used limestone water, (that may make it fit to drink) but it sure as heck ain't real Kentucky Bourbon.
