HOME | ON TAP | COCKTAILS & SPIRITS
We encourage checking regularly with your local spirits merchant about special deals that may be available on certain spirits, and if you’re having trouble deciding which brand of a spirit to buy, try visiting a well-stocked bar and asking the bartender to pour you a flight of his or her favorite three options. That way, you can decide if you like a particular brand before investing in a bottle. And remember that building your spirits collection is a gradual process, which helps makes the cost more manageable. Like any other collection, add to it as you discover new spirits or you decide you have a need for something specific—there’s a lot of satisfaction in watching that collection expand over time.
