There’s just something special about sipping a glass of neat bourbon by a crackling fire—whether it’s one in your own home, a snowy bonfire with friends, or just a nine-hour YouTube fireplace loop.

Regardless of where you’re drinking your bourbon, we have a few recommended bottles to try out this winter.

Village Garage Bourbon 

The makers of this stunning bourbon are looking to have a little bit of Vermont in glasses nationwide. Their premier bourbon is made using a mash of Vermont corn and rye before being aged for five years in American White Oak barrels. The result is a buttery smooth spirit with notes of black pepper, toasted caramel, and a hint of sweetness.

Few Cold Cut Bourbon

If you’re looking for something a little different, Few Bourbons’ Cold Cut expression is brought to bottling strength with the addition of cold brew coffee. While the spirit drinks like a whiskey, the hints of coffee bring out the notes of cinnamon and clove.
