The only museum in the USA dedicated to the story of Prohibition has opened in Savannah, Georgia.

The American Prohibition Museum is not your typical ‘dry’ museum and tells the story of the era from gangsters to rum runners and some of America’s most infamous troublemakers.

Family enjoying the tour Visitors admiring the figures Couple admiring old drunken couple figures A beautiful classic car from the time of prohibition Woman figure with Axe Preaching Visitors having a cocktail

In the interactive museum, which features 20 intoxicating exhibits, visitors will learn about Savannah’s role in the Temperance Movement towards Prohibition during the 1920s and 1930s and how it became known as the “Bootleg Spigot of the South”.

The museum leaves no glass empty as it explains the Temperance Movement and the propaganda used to vote America dry, the turbulent consequences of the passing of the 18th amendment, and even how the role of women changed because of the legislation.

The highlight of the museum is visiting the authentic speakeasy, only accessible by password, where the bartenders teach visitors how to make classic Prohibition cocktails whilst revealing the history behind every pour.

Entry to the museum costs $12.84 for adults and $9.63 for children. Tickets include entrance to the speakeasy and with a valid ID, a drink ticket can be purchased for $8.

For more information on the America Prohibition Museum, visit AmericanProhibitionMuseum.com, or contact Erica Backus with Visit Savannah at 912.644.6405 or EBackus@VisitSavannah.com.

From within the tasting rooms of San Antonio Winery, customers repeatedly requested a sweeter, light, refreshing wine. The Riboli family took this unique opportunity to create a new semi-sweet, semi-sparkling wine style, which today, they are a leader of. And so, Stella Rosa was born.

Stella Rosa was created 14 years ago by California’s Riboli Family, now celebrating 100 years of award-winning winemaking.

“We wanted to fill a void in the wine industry with an easy-to-drink semi-sweet, semi-sparkling wine. We created a wine perfect for the new wine consumer, and they responded.”
– Steve Riboli, Vice President

It quickly became America’s favorite wine in its category. Stella Rosa is the number one imported Italian wine in the United States and the second fastest growing brand among the top 30 wine brands nationwide[1].

My inspiration for Siberian Gold was the once great Trans-Siberian gold mining industry.

This “soon to be a classic” Martini is aromatically pleasing with Orange Blossom Water and Amaretto jumping out of the glass and a light flavor of anise close on their heels. It’s gold in a glass!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 oz. Mamont Vodka
  • 1/2 oz. Aquavit
  • 1/2 oz. Amaretto
  • 1 dash Orange Flower Water
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters

Preparation: Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and stir for dilution. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with an orange twist.

My inspiration for the Altai Sour was a photo of the smoke-shrouded and snow-kissed Altai Mountains. Ardbeg Scotch represents the low looming fog while the base spirit Mamont Vodka hoists both the Orgeat and Lemon Juice to a place where you can almost taste the crisp mountain air.

G-Eazy Joins Stillhouse Whiskey as Partner & Co-Creative Director, featured image

When hustle recognizes hustle, great things are possible.

Stillhouse, the breakout spirits company best known for its award-winning clear American whiskey, has announced that Oakland-bred multi-platinum rapper and producer Gerald “G-Eazy” Gillum has been named Partner and Co‑Creative Director alongside CEO & Founder Brad Beckerman.

This year, both creators are burning brighter than ever: Stillhouse with its one-of-a-kind daring red, stainless steel can that goes where glass can’t, and G-Eazy, style icon at the helm of hip-hop and pop music, and one of Forbes’ “30 Under 30″ honorees, with his recently announced new album titled “The Beautiful & Damned,” on the way this fall.

“Spirits companies had approached me with endorsement deals but that was just money. I kept running into Stillhouse everywhere and fell in love with the brand, not to mention its smooth whiskey. I wanted to partner with Brad because he has this infectious energy and passion for the brand he’s continuing to grow. We hit it off quick with an instant shared vision and love for Stillhouse.”
– G-Eazy

Brad Beckerman and G Eazy

Brad Beckerman and G Eazy

Given Brad and G-Eazy’s mutual enthusiasm for whiskey, respect for each other’s hustle mentality, and love for Johnny Cash (whose audacity and unapologetic artistry has deeply inspired them), Beckerman knew partnering was the right decision.

“We had an instant bond – in my gut I knew that G would make an amazing partner and contributor to Stillhouse because of his drive, creativity and meticulousness. Stillhouse blends nostalgia and heritage with just the right amount of irreverence and G pushes the envelope to elevate that further.”
– Brad Beckerman

The fast friendship led G-Eazy to invest in Stillhouse, which marks the rapper’s first spirits venture and closes a significant round of funding for the company.

Beyond a love of whiskey, the duo is respected for their business acumen and willingness to take risks. As a college graduate from Loyola University G-Eazy applies his marketing expertise to his art, ensuring every event is a curated experience providing exclusive meet & greet packages and fan activations. In addition to his merchandise available for purchase at regional shows across the US, he has extended his efforts to global pop-up shops that also feature special brand collaborations. Beckerman, a serial entrepreneur and former Chief Creative Officer at Live Nation, brings to the table his business savvy, keen eye for branding and depth of experience in spirits, music, fashion, sports and entertainment.

First on deck: G-Eazy will help to open the Louisiana market, which is home to the musician’s alma mater. This market expansion is a reflection of accelerated demand and continued growth for the young powerhouse whiskey brand. G-Eazy shared, “I’m honored and excited to represent my second home and old stomping grounds. Can’t wait for NOLA to see what we have coming!”

Copper & Kings Launches Destillaré Liqueurs Orange Curaçao and Limited Release Mistelle, featured image

Louisville-based Copper & Kings American Brandy Co. is launching a new line of alembic distilled liqueurs to complement its core American Brandy products.

Named Destillaré®, the liqueurs are non-chill-filtered, copper pot-distilled brandy base infusions without the addition of sugar or colorants.

The word destillaré, is the Latin root word for the modern English—Distillation. Derived from the meaning “to drop,” “trickle down” or “drops.”

The first two products, an intense orange Curaçao and a limited release fortified Mistelle, will be available in August 2017.

“We wanted to take the classic liqueurs and re-interpret them upon our own sensibility. Our aspiration is for superior, intense, dense liquid that elevates cocktail mixology and the art and talent that goes in to making delicious concoctions. As Copper & Kings brandy products entrench ever more deeply in great bars across the U.S., we wanted to complement that with liqueurs that are commonly used with our own products in cocktails.”
– Copper & Kings founder Joe Heron

Copper & Kings Launches Destillaré Liqueurs Orange Curaçao and Limited Release Mistelle

Photo by Ron Jason

“We are a brandy distillery, and using brandy as a base adds a lovely softness, a long finish and enough structure to work within complex libations,” said Copper & Kings Head Distiller Brandon O’Daniel. “We want to live within the formality of liqueur styles that have existed for well over a century, and then add our point of view.

“It’s exciting to have a new palette to paint with, to create exciting, novel post-distillation infusions, which is a little different to Copper & Kings products which don’t allow for post-distillation intervention. The process and formulations have been very complex and challenging, but that’s part of our personal growth,” added O’Daniel.

“We distill and infuse honey for sweetness, together with being non-chill-filtered this makes for an exceptional velvety mouthfeel, and a natural aftertaste. The vapor distillation adds a lovely layered intensity and the floral spike is very unique,” he said.

“We see so much artistry behind the bar today,” says Chris Wilkins, Copper & Kings National Brand Ambassador. “We wanted to perhaps add a little magic, to help provide a superior liquid which help build classics like Sidecars, Tiki drinks, the Brandy Crusta, and a platform for even more creativity. Frankly I am loving this simply over ice in a rocks glass, it’s gorgeous.”

“With a higher than usual 90 proof it gives the cocktail profile some backbone, and the ability to hold up in a cocktail. Honey is a secret weapon – not too sweet, not too candy-like, and oh-so-smooth.”
– Chris Wilkins, Copper & Kings National Brand Ambassador
