10 Best Rum Brands 2019 - What Rum Bottles to Buy Right Now
MAY 31, 2019 | Esquire | BY JONAH FLICKER.

When you think of a Dark ‘n Stormy, Goslings would like you to think of its rum and its rum alone. In fact, the brand has trademarked the cocktail’s name, insisting that it must be made with Goslings Black Seal rum and Goslings ginger beer. Of course, you’ll (probably) be safe making it with whatever rum you fancy at home. There is a reason Goslings is as popular as it is: It’s cheap and it goes down easy. Goslings doesn't have a distillery; instead, the Bermuda-based company sources barrels from other countries, ages and blends in Bermuda, and ships the rum to Kentucky for bottling. The rum in Black Seal is aged in bourbon barrels for several years, but that dark color is amplified by the addition of molasses from one of the distillates in the final blend, according to Malcolm Gosling. If you’re looking for something more complex, check out Papa Seal Single Barrel, a 15-year-old rum bottled from just 12 barrels that was released last fall.

Breaking through in a crowded subscription-video market won’t be easy.......The BrewDog Network will carry a mix of licensed and original content where drinking is an element, from food shows to travel series such as “Four Sheets,” hosted by bon vivant Zane Lamprey. “The BrewDog Show,” featuring the company’s founders, will also be available at launch.

Another Arnault Steps Into the Spotlight
NOV. 7, 2017 | The New York Times | By ELIZABETH PATON.

Clos19, LVMH’s first e-boutique and travel experience agency dedicated to Champagne, wines and spirits, had its debut in the United States, via a fizz-fueled soiree in New York. The focus of Ms. Watine Arnault’s brainchild, she said after the party, is on the “art of hosting” in the 21st century.

So what, one wonders, does that entail? Clos19 isn’t exactly an online bottle shop. Yes, you can order crates of LVMH’s finest drinks brands, like Dom Pérignon, Veuve Cliquot, Belvedere or Hennessy, to be delivered to your door in 24 hours. But you can also specify the temperature of the deliveries, and the glassware to go with it. Tastings or consultations with in-house experts will be regularly offered, as is event planning for weddings and dinner parties.

Clos19 also offers access to LVMH cellars or experiences designed around the spirits, including a fire-and-ice tasting in Antarctica or yachting off the Cloudy Bay vineyards in New Zealand. The lowest-priced experience is about $230, with the cost of luxury scaling up from there to dizzying heights.

When Jack Daniel’s Failed to Honor a Slave, an Author Rewrote History - The New York Times
By CLAY RISEN AUG. 15, 2017

“It’s absolutely critical that the story of Nearest gets added to the Jack Daniel story,” Mark I. McCallum, the president of Jack Daniel’s Brands at Brown-Forman, said in an interview.

The company’s decision to recognize its debt to a slave, first reported last year by The New York Times, is a momentous turn in the history of Southern foodways. Even as black innovators in Southern cooking and agriculture are beginning to get their due, the tale of American whiskey is still told as a whites-only affair, about Scots-Irish settlers who brought Old World distilling knowledge to the frontier states of Tennessee and Kentucky.

Green’s story changes all that by showing how enslaved people likely provided the brains as well as the brawn in what was an arduous, dangerous and highly technical operation......Mr. May said that so far, visitor response to the new tours spotlighting Green’s contribution has been positive. It’s not hard to see why: At a rough time for race relations in America, the relationship between Daniel and Green allows Brown-Forman to tell a positive story, while also pioneering an overdue conversation about the unacknowledged role that black people, as slaves and later as free men, played in the evolution of American whiskey.

Craft Beer’s Larger Aspirations Cause a Stir -
Published: March 4, 2013

Several new, high-profile breweries are putting their product only in so-called large-format bottles. Dogfish Head Brewery, one of the bigger, better-known craft breweries in the country, will soon dedicate one of its two bottle-filling lines just to the 750-milliliter format.

The trend toward large bottles is part of what is being called the “wine-ification” of beer, the push by many brewers to make their product as respectable to pair with braised short ribs as is a nice Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and at a price to match. Bottles sell for as much as $30 in stores and much more on restaurant menus.

But they are getting a chilly reception from many drinkers. Internet message boards dedicated to craft beer are replete with complaints that large bottlesare too expensive and, thanks to their typically higher alcohol content, a challenge to finish in one sitting. Unlike wine, a beer is nearly impossible to recork.

Sweet and fruity to bold and brawny: A British classic sheds its girly image - The Globe and Mail
Aug. 08 2007 | Globe and Mail | BEPPI CROSARIOL.

Strongbow (England) $2.70/500-mlVery dry for a cider. Pale yellow. Subtle fresh-apple flavour and a hint of beer-like graininess. Light and clean. Very good.

Magners Original (Ireland) $2.80/500-ml Golden, full-bodied and round. Rich, baked-apple flavour. Nicely balanced, with distinct sweetness but fairly crisp on the finish. Very good.

Blackthorn (England) $2.80/500-ml Light, fresh apple flavour and crisp acidity. Like a cross between crisp, light Strongbow and fruity Magners.

Okanagan Premium Classic Dry Apple (B.C.) $10.45/6-pack of 355-ml cans (West only).A tad funky on the nose, but the flavour is clean, quite dry and fresh. Good value.

Growers Pomegranate Dry Cider (B.C.) $9.49/6-pack of 341-ml bottles Electric red and quite sweet for a "dry" cider. More of a fruit cooler than an example of cider's new manly image.

Williams Sir Perry, (England) $2.70/500-ml Light and quite dry, with an ever-so-subtle pear flavour. Very good.

For Every Holiday Party, the Right Drink
Between now and New Year’s Day, even occasional drinkers will find numerous occasions to lift a glass. Some of these drinks will be out of your control. But there will likely be gatherings where you are the one doing the pouring. The working theory here is that, for every possible event, there is an ideal beverage: something that will match the food, match the company, match the feeling in the air. What follows is an exercise in situational drinking. Some of the beverages suggested are timeless, some are clever new inventions by the nation’s most forward-thinking bartenders. All are designed to impress and to comfort. — STEVEN STERN

LVMH Bottles Up Champagne Market
To Win Long Contracts From Grape Growers, Firm Helps Farmers.

The conglomerate, controlled by French billionaire Bernard Arnault, has managed in recent years to lay claim to the largest share by far of the Champagne region's limited grape output. LVMH has done that by cultivating the independent growers who raise most of the grapes -- including by offering them free farming help....LVMH's offer to these reluctant grape growers is a formula used in industries from autos to software makers: an after-sales service. Technical services such as determining the presence of mildew and parasites and identifying which grapes are maturing the fastest are provided free. By law, champagne houses have to charge for field services, including grape picking; LVMH provides those at cost.

October 6, 2011 | Report on Small Business | Wency Leung.

Tax auditors gave Kyle Tweter his inspiration. The co-owner of The Moose bar in downtown Vancouver was alarmed when the auditors found a discrepancy worth thousands of dollars between the number of liquor shots sold and the volume the venue had purchased. After hiring a private inventory monitoring firm, Tweter was able to rule out theft and spillage, only to realize the size of the shot glasses was to blame.
