Had a great time at our Local Craft Creamery - the wife got a Pumpkin Spiced Milkshake, which was the best creation since Air Conditioning. My child and I shared a stack of Reece's PB cup/ Strawberry shortcake/ Chocolate, nestled carefully inside of a waffle cone/bowl they make in house - all of which was devoured. @ejkinsey84
Our mate Matt has come up with another banger, this time using our spiced rum! We can't wait to recreate this fiery number 🌶
A fruity, fiery 'Last Word' variation .
I finally got round to trying the Spiced Rum from @burningbarnrum and, as well as being tasty, it might also have one of the biggest spice kicks I've ever tried in a rum 👏🏼.
My brain kindly suggested that pairing the heat with my new @monkey47_dry_gin sloe gin might be a good shout. Then recalled that sloe & chartreuse is a winning combo. From there I was just a step away from the Last Word formula...and it worked out beautifully 👌. Just four equal parts: spiced rum, sloe gin, green chartreuse & lime juice. Cheers!
• 25ml @burningbarnrum spiced rum
• 25ml @monkey47_dry_gin sloe gin
• 25ml @chartreuse.fr green chartreuse
• 25ml fresh lime juice
👉 Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into coupé glass. Garnish with clear iceberg (courtesy of @wintersmiths & a knife) purely so you can balance a set of green chilli panpipes between it and the rim.
Batch 2 of our Artisan Vodka is now available, and we will be pouring samples tomorrow at Spirits by the Bay. I will be bottling and labeling our first batch of Silver Rum a little later this afternoon, and I am very excited to tell you we will be pouring this spirit as well. We couldn't be happier with how the rum has turned out. It is amazing if I am allowed to say so myself. Also, Copper Collar Distillery will be closed tomorrow since Jason and I will both be at the festival. I am here today until 7pm for tours, tastings, and bottle sales. We will be back next weekend. Cheers! #coppercollardistillery#craftrum#craftvodka#sdspirits#craftdistillery

The North Coast semi final of our #tipunchmasters cocktail competition was huge fun, with competitors from all over the region facing off. Here is Sam Curtis's twist on the Ti Punch - the Tiki Punch. @harvestnewrybar 😄👌🏼
A shop owner recommended this to me. He was spot on! There's caramel, vanilla, demerara sugar, and spices in the sip! • • •
I paired it with an Arturo Fuente Double Chateau Sungrown cigar! @arturofuentecigars
