As you all know, we love to stay on top of growing trends in the beverage industry. The latest rage is barrel aging.
What do you get from barrel aging? A conversation piece, complexity, uniqueness, individuality and – best of all – a hgreat drink.
One interesting thing to note about selecting the right cocktail is that it is important to choose one that is all spirit-based. We at elements think it is also essential to select a cocktail with a base spirit like gin that does not spend any time in a barrel.
Other things to watch out for are fruit juices such as lemon & lime, which go bad quickly and can spoil your barrel.
Right now we have a Martinez on the list and a Rosita aging in a barrel for your drinking pleasure.
