clear liquor: I'm on a Rouge Distillery Spruce Gin kick

I like Rouge Spruce Gin quite a bit. I bought a bottle on a whim and loved it. I'm now on my second bottle. I also love Hendrick's Gin. Hendrick's uses cucumbers in the botanicals which cuts the woody taste. Tanquery Rangpur is another favorite. They use Rangpur limes in the botanicals.

I've been enjoying a lot of small batch bourbons myself. I strongly recommend Bulliett, Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek and Maker's Mark. All are reasonably priced but very tasty.

Bit of a bourbon fan myself - liking my friend Jim, he's helped sooooo many resto's I've lost count.

Beer of choice, can't go past a Corona or aussie TED's

Anyone ever tried this blue Japanese beer? It's on my to do list 8)

I've only had the 3 major Japanese beers - Kirin, Sapporo, Asahi. I like Sapporo the best, and not just because it's named after a Mitsubishi! :)

Ozeki is literally just down the street from me!


Cars and liquor, our government seems to make it difficult to get the rarer of both.

I was in California some years ago, the wrong half as it turns out. I wanted to stop by two places on the way out, Ozeki and Ground Control. Both would have been 6+ hours from where I was standing and added an extra day to the drive home.

As it turns out, just being a distiller or brewer in the US doesn't mean that you can sell your product in stores in all fifty states. The easy way would be like food or anything else, they take the tax at the point of sale. But distillers and brewers have to have a separate liquor license for each state they intend to make their product available in. Ozeki chose not to bother with some inland states. I can drive across the state line, but they have higher sales tax and just cranked up their liquor tax rate by something stupid like an additional $2 per bottle (above an already stiff liquor tax they already had). They are trying to follow that California bankruptcy trend.

One of the many AB breweries is literally down the street from me (they have a dozen, they're down the street from just about everyone). AB owns the US distribution rights to Kirin. They sell the two main Kirin beer brands, but nothing else. Kirin has a dozen different beers in Japan. Beer is a taste I never acquired, but Kirin has 20+ different brands of shochu, and a line of canned chuhai drinks, including the perennial Japanese vending machine and combini favorite "Lemon Chu-Hi". None of these are available through AB.

I keep thinking I need to build my own still..

I stopped in at Woodford when I was in the area and did thier little tasting tour. I liked it as a mixing liquor for a julep or something of the like but i thought it a bit too overpowering on its own. Had too much of an alcohol taste to me unlike the Wild Turkey which had way more vanilla and oak.

What makes it blue? Seems kinda gimmicky to me. Looks like it would taste like gum or something :x

edit:
After a quick google search, I have come to the conclusion I do want to try this beer, lol.

I'm not really into booze, but I do like a good beer.

And I figure, if I'm gonna drive a Japanese car, I might as well drink a Japanese beer (just not at the same time of course).

I recommend Yebisu and Kirin Ichiban.

Live, Laugh, Love Japan! :tu: :wink:
