If you prefer a classic dark spirit with a hint of Old Hollywood swagger, Jack Daniel’s latest ultra-premium signature bottling is probably just right for you. Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select is a brand partnership between two icons. Of course, it comes in a sexy gift box and a specially designed bottle, but beyond that, the whiskey itself actually comes from special toasted “Sinatra barrels” hand-selected by the master distiller.
“The smooth, bold character of the whiskey is meant to embody the smooth, bold character of the man,” croons the official press release. Presumably it’s also meant to reinforce the smooth, bold character of the customer who gives it pride of place in their home liquor collection.
For the artisan product connoisseurs, New York producer Rhys & Rylee is launching two new expressions of “New World” vermouth—a tiny, super-specialized niche within the craft cocktail craze. Creator Adam Ford was inspired by the artisan vermouths of the Tour du Mont Blanc in Italy. This tastemaker product currently comes in two expression, Amberthorn and Armadillo Cake. It debuted at the Experimental Cocktail Club in Manhattan in October.
