sf indie spirits.

sf indie spirits is an expo of small batch and artisinal spirits, and a great opportunity to meet distillers, owners and brand reps while sampling an incredible array of products. the event was filled to the seams, and we left before general admission even got into full swing. (so grateful for the vip ticket hookup!)

my personal favorites:

square one vodka – locally based and female owned. cucumber vodka and basil vodka are both refreshing and unique.

fair vodka – quinoa based vodka, only single distilled to keep some of the body and earthiness of the quinoa, drinks almost like a white whiskey. incredible in an old fashioned (and the brand ambassador shared his rosemary honey recipe with us!)

pur spirits – german made line of liquers and spirits, all with really clean flavor and light mouth feel. to be classified as a liquer a product has to have 8-30% sugar, while most people lean higher on the spectrum, pur does only 8% sugar and the difference shows. also do a really interesting distilled beer

209 gin – san francisco made, overall delicious and the flavors work well in a martini or mixed cocktail

bloom gin – made by the only female master gin distiller, at englands oldest gin distillery

bootlegger 21 vodka – based out of new york, possibly the cleanest vodka i’ve ever tasted
