We’re back with another edition of New Booze. We got an overwhelming response from our readers so this one’s here to stay. There’s some new booze hitting the shelves this week (or soon) that might be worth your buck. We’ve got a couple Canadian whiskey’s, a flavored rum just in time for Summer, and it looks like Pinnacle isn’t giving up on the crazy flavored vodka “fad”.


Alberta Rye Dark Batch: Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky features a blend of 91% rye whisky, 8% bourbon and 1% sherry to add layers of complexity in each bottle. The distinct rich color of the liquid comes from a combination of factors, including the aging process, which incorporates both new charred American white oak and once-used American bourbon barrels. Other contributing factors include the addition of a touch of sherry and Alberta, Canada’s high altitude, desert-like humidity levels and extreme seasonal and daily temperature changes, which promote maturation.Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky is at its best in cocktails that highlight its distinctive flavor, such as the Rye Squeeze below, and can also be enjoyed neat.[$29.99 750 ML | 90 Proof]
