Accolades for Others


Lassiter Distilling Co

Recommended Posts

Obviously, we all love our own products. After years of planning, study and compromising in one way or another, we all absolutely have to love what we make. Our North Carolina Rum (forthcoming here in NC, for those of you around) has developed into a complex, slightly sweet, floral and full flavored white rum which I love drinking.

But sometimes, after a long day of distilling, bottling, labeling, government paperwork and cleaning, I want to drink and appreciate someone else's hard work. 

So what does everyone admire these days? I've got a couple I'm really into these days: Balcones True Blue is a work of art. North Shore Distillery's gin is completely unique and delightful. And Great Lakes Rehorst Vodka is the only vodka i have ever been able to drink since college. 

Anyone else want to give some props?

Gentry,

     Super cool idea for a thread buddy!  I have to say that I am in a very privileged spot and I get to taste a lot of cool products from all over the country.  It would be inappropriate for me to put any one ahead of the other and most everything I have had is AMAZING.  I think that speaks to the "craft" side of the industry and each and every product has its own unique and complex flavor profile which is even more stunning.  No one gin, vodka, whiskey, aquavit, bourbon, etc. is the same.  I have not tasted everything from all of my clients as of yet but I will say that everything I have had has been very good.  I cannot wait to see what others have to say.

I'm a big single malt fan. I either sit down to a dram of Bruichladdich (been drinking a lot Port Charlotte "Heavy Peated") or if I'm in the mood for something this side of the pond I don't think Westland Sherry Wood Single Malt can be beat.

@HedgeBird I picked up a bottle of your Rye. I got it Sunday at PA Libations in Pittsburgh. Very good product! Sipping some now. I love the fruitiness of it.

Thanks Foreshot!!  I just delivered those bottles to PA Libations on Saturday.  8 hours of driving for 2 hours in Pittsburgh. :wacko:

-I like HFS' Orphan Girl and Neversweat.

-I still haven't found anyone who can make a better old-fashioned than me if I have a bottle of Starlight's Private reserve brandy on hand.

-I believe that bluecoat gin is phenomenal and I can't wait to try some of Cassell's other products out of his new operation in philly (and elsewheres)

-Mississippi River Distilling Company makes (or made) an unbelievable coffee liqueur.

-I like death's door's gin, but Im gonna credit JJ on that instead of the distillery- can't wait to see what the Bently heritage estate has in store for us big dog!

-Although not craft distilled, it absolutely was "craftfully" blended (and around here we have a saying that we probably stole from else where: Distillers are rock stars, blenders are porn stars.) the original Bourye from highwest was delectable. I have a half a bottle saved for a rainy day but I don't know what occasion will actually call for that much fantastic
