What are you drinking right now? - Page 719

post #10771 of 14421
I just got some Schott Zwiesel diva bordeaux glasses for very cheap. I like them so far. Also bought six Spiegelau vinovino white wine glasses. We bought some IKEA white wine glasses for a friend. I've never had glasses in my hand that have an inferior "voice".

Manhattan:

2 oz Wiser's Deluxe 8 year old
1 oz Noilly Prat sweet
7 drops Bittercube Bolivar bitters

Next one only five drops. Potent stuff!

For my cask, thinking of setting down:

750 ml Wiser's Deluxe
375 ml Noilly Prat sweet
12 eye droppers Velvet Tango Room bitters
1/4 cup filtered water

Can't decide if I want to put a cherry element in, i.e. a little Luxardo

First experiment. Might age some silver tequila or white whisky.

So you're making pre-made manhattan's in bulk? Honestly a bit confused as to why. What does this gain from aging? And doesn't it lose something from sitting unmixed for a long period of time?

Why don't you stop in at a bar with cask conditioned cocktails on your travels to experience it yourself?

Good video, b1os.

Good video, b1os.

Can you buy pre-used casks, or are the ones available to the public new oak? It's an interesting concept, and I liked the article. We use an oak cask for aging our vinegar and it gives it a nicer flavor.

I've had an aged Negroni that was life-changing. A Manhattan looks really good, too. Good luck, piob.

In Re: Barrel aged cocktails - though certainly not on the same scale at all...

Has anyone else received the "Aged" Box Of Awesome from Bespokepost.com?




From the website:

This month, we're bringing the distillery to your doorstep. The basic gist: create your favorite cocktail, pour it into your aging kit, wait 10 days, taste the transformation. This technique changes a cocktail's character and flavor, mellowing the mix in the same way wines and distilled spirits are aged. And unlike traditional barreling techniques, the shape and size of this kit brings the wait down from months. Patience was never our virtue.

BARREL AGED COCKTAIL KIT
In the center, a charred honeycomb barrel stave from the craftsman at the Black Swan Cooperage. The 375ml glass vessel helps sail your cocktail into the sublime. Each fill develops a softer and subtler finish than the last. We're including an extra stave, each of which lasts 4 uses, a funnel for pouring, and a strainer. Video recipes and more from the cocktail experts at AskMen.com to come.

COCKTAIL TUMBLERS
, Sempli, sempli.com
A king must sit on a throne. Back by popular demand, Sempli's playful tumblers roll with the punches. These hand-blown Italian crystal glasses are the talk of the town, and somehow make drinking even more fun than usual.

Everything gets better with age.

Note, the box consists of: the aging kit (glass bottle, funnel, cheesecloth strainer, one barrel stave), one extra barrel stave, 2 Sempli cocktail tumblers.

I'm pretty sure I had found some sights with pre-used barrels but I went with this site, 1000oaksbarrel.com, because http://www.woodinvillewhiskeyco.com/products/age-your-own-whiskey-kit/ doesn't ship to me. Again, these are new barrels. I'll check and see if I can find one of the sites I seem to remember offered pre-used. I seem to remember they tended to be bigger though (mine is 2 litre).

Here is the guy usually credited with the whole cask conditioned thing: http://www.jeffreymorgenthaler.com/
