Okay pally, so you have little time and lots of people to buy for? Ever since Madmen came out several years ago, old school drinking is now all the rage. Remember when you were a kid and everyone gave liquor as presents? Then the damn kids of the hippies got all persnickety and stopped all that with their political correctness. Now, the kids of kids of hippies are rebelling and so it is cool go give liquor as a gift again. So, here are 5 last minute bottles that will be appreciated by any hippie grandkid or will kind of annoy a hippie kid if that is your aim.
#1 – Angel’s Envy Rye. If you like rye or want to try it (it is very trendy now), this is the one to get. Pricey, but the best new brand of rye to come out in the last few years.
St. George’s Absinthe – Again, a cool liqueur that has come back into its glory. Do you friends like reading Poe? (No, not from ConAir) then they will appreciate this. This was the first American absinthe released after the ban was listed after 2007 and remains the best.
#3 – Leopold’s Gin – If you love gin and tonics, you will love this gin. The best gin I have tasted for gin and tonics. Simply the best. Buy it, love it.
#4 – Papa’s Pilar rum – New to Northern California this rum is inspired by Hemingway. A man who knew how to drink. I have often wished I could go on just one binge with that man. I especially like the aged dark rum. If you are a rum man, give it a try – buy one for you, one for giving as a gift.
