Liquid Riot Bottling Company, the brewery/distillery/restaurant on the Old Port waterfront in Portland, is getting older. And so are their spirits. They’ve recently released four varieties of barrel-aged spirits, complementing their distillery’s portfolio. Three whiskies and a rum join their vodka, white rum, and white whiskey, so the Lady Friend […]

Liquid Riot is Aging

V5 Bourbon, the latest release from Smoky Quartz Distillery, is a limited-edition, small batch, single mash, seven-month-old, 90 proof, New Hampshire bourbon. It’s very tasty. You should get some. The end. More? Oh, very well. Smoky Quartz Distillery, as you may recall from our recent tour, is a veteran-owned and […]

SQD V5 Bourbon. Made by Veterans, for Veterans. And Everyone Else.

Uncle Bob doesn’t mess around. There’s been a trend in root beer flavored adult beverages lately, and some of them are pretty good. The only problem is, they just don’t have ENOUGH booze for my go-go drinking lifestyle. ENTER THE BOB’S. I saw these bottles come up on my Instagram […]

Not Dad’s, it’s Uncle Bob’s Root Beer WHISKEY.



RumOff_HDR2_layer_lores
Rum-ble? So I got a bunch of new, somewhat local, rums recently from a variety of sources. Some gifts, some smuggling requests, some I just plain bought. So I’m going to line them up and try them side by side. Sounds like a fun afternoon for me. All of these […]

Rum-Off!

Rule 37: Black Russian


Warning: rant ahead. After moving to Portland about a year ago from Braintree, MA, I breathed a sigh of freedom after living under some of Masachusetts’s draconian liquor laws. There are drink specials here! Happy hour! Granted, the selection at my local “packies” isn’t quite what I could get in […]

YES. The first of the Bully Boy aged spirits. FINALLY. Now I get to take you to whiskey school. You might learn something. Plus, how awesome does “whiskey school” sound? Bully! So. Bully Boy’s American Straight Whiskey. It’s a small-batch craft whiskey coming out of Boston by (very tall) distillers […]
