Bols Barrel Aged Genever
Lucas Bols is releasing Bols Barrel Aged Genever to the U.S. market. Using an 18th century recipe and aged for 18 months in oak casks, Bols Barrel Aged Genever embraces wood characteristics of American whiskies while maintaining Bols Genever’s herbaceous, juniper flavors. Made with malt wine — a rye, wheat and corn distillate — and triple distilled in copper pot stills, the pale golden Bols Barrel Aged Genever is blended with traditional Genever botanicals and boasts wood-infused flavors.
Van Gogh Flavored Vodkas
Van Gogh Vodka is adding two new flavors to its vodka line this fall: Rich Dark Chocolate and Cool Peach. The decadent chocolate flavors of Van Gogh’s Rich Dark Chocolate have hints of coffee, nutmeg and spice, creating a complex dark cocoa taste complemented by coffee, chili pepper, caramel and exotic spice notes that add a spicy finish. Van Gogh Cool Peach Vodka combines ripe, juicy peaches with a hint of mint. Aromas of sweet almond and mint add to the peach and sweet almond flavors; a hint of mint leaves a cool, refreshing finish.
Tuaca Liqueur Bottle Design
Tuaca Liqueur is launching its newly designed, limited-edition package, which uses thermochromatic ink printed on the bottle to show the perfect chilled serving temperature. Designed by celebrity tattoo artist Corey Miller and featuring a sketch of the historic
Tuaca lion, the big, tattooed cat turns from silver to blue as the bottle is chilled; the vanilla-citrus liqueur is best served as an ice-cold shot.
Distilled in Mississippi’s only legal distillery, Cathead Vodka features a mix of grains, including sweet grain corn for a crisp finish; it’s distilled in small batches six times before being charcoal filtered. The 80 proof Cathead is available in seven states including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia; $1 of every bottle goes to a local charity.
