Cuna de Piedra Cacao from Soconusco, Chiapas, with Mezcal When Simran Sethi shared the story of Cuna de Piedra chocolate from Mexico in her recent feature on the origins of drinking chocolate, we quickly became enamored with the line of rich chocolates from the Monterrey-based makers.

Alaya Tea & Maryiza Honey Collaboration To upgrade your afternoon tea ritual, this springtime collaboration between Alaya Tea and Maryiza honey pairs a fragrant and full-bodied Assam with the ethereal floral qualities of Geteme honey, a single-origin forest variety cultivated from high altitudes in Ethiopia. When paired together, the cup sings with a graham-cracker like honey sweetness. $35,

Bimini Coconut Gin One easy way to spin summery cocktails? Bimini Coconut Gin, which the brand aptly describes as “Bimini on vacation.” Using their American gin as the base, the Maine distillery fat-washes the spirit with extra-virgin coconut oil, bypassing flavor extracts. The warming, tropical depths of coconut tease out the gin’s citrusy botanical build, adding layers of complexity to classic gin cocktails, such as a Negroni or Gimlet. $34.99

The company’s playful Cloud Cup, initially introduced as a “mug of the week,” was quickly pronounced a keeper and graduated to the permanent lineup. The wheel-thrown stoneware vessel holds 12 ounces and is appropriate for any occasion, from coffee and tea to cocktails and wine. $42,

Larsen Aqua Ignis Cognac This silky spirit is created through a special steam-fire process, involving French oak casks being submerged into hot water, then toasted over hot fire three times. Bottled at 42.3%, the resulting Cognac is rich, robust, and perfectly giftable. $43,

Milam & Greene Straight Rye From Imbibe 75 Person to Watch Heather Greene, this Indiana whiskey is batched and finished in port wine casks in the balmy Texas heat. It tips the scales at 94 proof, with a heady spiced cinnamon quality plus notes of dry bittersweet chocolate and crunchy toffee. $50,

Broc Cellars Wine Glass This re-imagining of the classic wine glass was a collaboration between Broc Cellars, Rafi Ajl of The Long Confidence and Glow Glass Studio. With a substantial thickness and short stature, the hand-blown glasses have a charming wabi sabi quality that’s hard to find in other modern wine glass designs. $55,

Domaine de Broglie Brut Rosé Named after Nobel prize winner Louis de Broglie, this lightly sparkling rosé from the Coppola family’s Oregon property has all the stately sophistication befitting such a name. Made with Pommard Clone Pinor Noir grapes, the bubbly balances pomegranate-like acidity with high notes of lemon peel and an underlying kiss of sweetness. $65,
