Last Minute Whiskey Gifts

Last Minute Whiskey Gifts

Yet another week of whiskey gifts.  These have been thought out for that hard-to-buy-for whiskey enthusiast in your life.  Be sure to check out the last two blog entries and see the first 14 suggestions after looking at the 7 new ones here… #1-  Whiskey Emergency Kit. (And don’t get hung up on the “gentleman” bit in the link. Ladies will like this too!) This is a bit odd because it is actually a DIY kit and requires some work on your part. However, I believe that the kits you can buy are a bit lacking in the personalization dept. You know your whiskey enthusiast best and many of the items that can be included vary wildly in price. It’s best to create your own kit! Here’s one option for ideas-...

Another Week of Whiskey Gifts!

Another Week of Whiskey Gifts!

There are lots of options for gifts out there and the whiskey boom is really improving the buying choices! Take a look at this week’s suggestions.  I’m sure you’ll find something for that whiskey enthusiast that can be tough to shop for… #1- Fancy glassware. This seems like an easy gift, but there are some really cool options that a lot of people don’t have, even if they are seasoned whiskey drinkers. My personal favorite is the Peugeot whiskey tasting glass. It’s also available through Amazon. https://www.williams-sonoma.com/…/peugeot-whiskey-glass-set/ Another good choice is the Norlan whiskey glass. I have the Norlan and I like it, but they also sell the Rauk Heavy Tumbler, which is high on my “must buy list”....

A Week of Christmas Gift Ideas…

A Week of Christmas Gift Ideas…

Let’s be honest, there are really only a few weeks left until Christmas (Amazon only ships until Christmas eve), Hanukkah is underway, and we’re all scrambling for gifts! I wanted to put together some ideas that would be helpful to a person that has no idea what to get for their favorite whiskey drinker. There are tons of lists out there, but I tried to put mine together with a personal touch. #1- When it comes to Etsy gifts, you want to order those early. Personalized gifts, especially. Many may have already seen the whiskey advent calendars out there. There are some pre-made options that are already full of scotch or bourbon/rye samples, but I wanted to show you something I’d found on Etsy that might have a more personal touch. There are more expensive wooden...

SeedSpark: Connecting Farmers to Distillers

SeedSpark: Connecting Farmers to Distillers

There is a non-profit in Pennsylvania that is trying to help farmers make a profit.  The Delaware Valley Fields Foundation, founded by Bucks County resident Laura Fields, is working to create new opportunities for local grain farmers. About 5 years ago, Ms. Fields recognized there was a change happening in Pennsylvania politics that would benefit local farmers.  An “old-made-new-again” industry is returning to Pennsylvania that has an immediate need for grain sources. That industry? Craft distilling. Ms. Fields and her non-profit want to see Pennsylvania grain farmers benefit directly from this new demand. Craft distilleries in Pennsylvania have grown from about 4 in 2010 to over 80 in 2018. This exponential growth provides a great deal of opportunity for local...
