cutwater_fugu

 

FUGU Vodka- True precision. It’s something you can taste. Just ask the people who seek out the venomous Fugu fish, the world’s most methodically prepared delicacy. Our own Fugu Vodka is no less the result of meticulous attention to detail. Distilled from some of the world’s finest grains and filtered 15 times. Because anything less than perfection is a mortal sin.

 

 

 

 

cutwater_fugu_horchata

 


FUGU Horchata-
In San Diego, we have some of the freshest, most authentic Mexican cuisine north of the border. So to flavor our Fugu Vodka, we took our inspiration from the tastes served up at our neighborhood taco shops: spicy habanero peppers, creamy horchata, and aguas frescas with sweet Jamaica hibiscus or juicy pineapple. The result: a world-class vodka, infused with local flavor.

cutwater_oldgrove_gin

 

 

Old Grove Gin- The Torrey Pine. Unique to the semi-arid shores of San Diego, but strangely reminiscent of the Juniper tree that embodies the London Dry style. Our Old Grove Gin blends the best of both worlds—crafted from freshly cracked, earthy and bold juniper berries, with subtle hints of fragrant rose and locally sourced coriander. For a drink that’s pure and proper, yet anything but contrived.

 

 

 

 

 

cutwater_oldgrove_barrelagedBarrel Rested Old Grove Gin- There’s something to be said for being well-rested. Our Barrel Rested Old Grove Gin spends 50 days relaxing in a charred oak barrel, giving it a distinct, warming character. Cinnamon notes abound on the nose, leading to an earthy smokiness and a hint of that familiar juniper taste in the finish. Enjoy it on its own, or try an oaky twist on a gin and tonic. It’s time to give your usual gin a vacation.

 

 

 

 

 

cutwater_threesheets_white

 

 

 

Three Sheets Rum – Sunshine, ocean breezes and an ice-cold cocktail. Easily one of life’s perfect combinations. Our Three Sheets Rum stirs things up a bit. Crafted from pure cane sugar, rather than molasses, and distilled in a hybrid pot-and-column still, this smooth silver rum is perfect for enjoying straight or mixed. At sea, or on shore.

 

 

 

 

cutwater_threesheets_barrelaged

 

 

 

Three Sheets Barrel Aged Rum – They say everything gets better with age. This rum is no exception. We age our white rum like a bourbon for two years in virgin American oak barrels, introducing hints of toffee and caramel that give way to flavors of vanilla and tobacco. This rum can hold its own in any whiskey cocktail, but we like it served neat. And sipped slowly.

 

 

 

 

 

cutwater_threesheets_spiced

 

 

Three Sheets Spiced Rum – Our Three Sheets spiced rum is just what the Tiki gods asked for. We infuse our white rum with a blend of seven spices: whole vanilla bean, shredded coconut, orange peel, ginger, nutmeg, black pepper and cinnamon. It’s the perfect rum for warm nights and classical tropical cocktails.

 

 

 

 

cutwater_opah

 

 

Opah Herbal Liquor- Every culture has a customary toast, usually enjoyed with a cheerful drink. Our Opah herbal liqueur is the perfect way to honor any occasion. Whether sipped or taken in one shot, the warm licorice flavors and notes of cinnamon will quickly put you in high spirits. And that alone is reason to celebrate. Opah!Spicy

 

 

 

 

cutwater_rtd_mary

 

 

 

Bloody Mary – Like the venomous namesake fish this Fugu Bloody Mary packs a sting. We’ve combined our signature Fugu Vodka with our award-winning Bloody Mary mix, featuring ripe tomatoes, exotic spices and a heavy dose of pepper, to make a spicy cocktail that is dangerously drinkable.

 

 

 

 

 

cutwater_rtd_tonic

 

Gin & Tonic- Even when updated, some cocktails are timeless. We’ve blended our clean and fragrant Old Grove Gin with our house-made grapefruit cucumber tonic to re-create the perfect match. A modern spin on an old classic, the bright citrusy flavors will keep you refreshed day or night

 

 

 

 

 

 


cutwater_rtd_coke

 

 

Rum & Cola  – This cocktail instantly transports you to the tropics. Our smooth Three Sheets White Rum crafted from pure cane sugar blends with earthy cardamom in our house-made cola to create a uniquely exotic yet inviting flavor. The mix of sweet and spice will have you feeling the waves wherever you may be.

 

 

 

cutwater_rtd_ginger

 

 

 

Rum & Ginger – This is like none you’ve ever tasted. We blend our Three Sheets White Rum, crafted from pure cane sugar, with our fresh and spicy house-made ginger beer to create a robust yet balanced craft cocktail. It’s a storm of flavor that is sure to warm your pallet.

 

 

 

cutwater_spicybloodymix

 

 

Spicy Bloody Mary Mix – Some flavors pair perfectly with just about anything. Take our Spicy Bloody Mary Mix, a signature blend of ripe tomatoes, spicy peppers, exotic spices and amber ale. Mix it with our Fugu Vodka and you’ve got the quintessential Bloody. Of course if you prefer a bit more bite, you can always whip up the original formula, known as a Red Snapper, using our Old Grove Gin. But no matter your choice, never let tradition dictate taste.

 

 

cutwater_mildbloodymix

 

 

 

 

Mild Bloody Mary Mix – While we made our Spicy Bloody Mary Mix for those like us who want some serious heat, our Mild Bloody Mary Mix is perfect for those who like a stronger dose of tomato in their mix. Our signature spice blend takes a back seat here, but this mix is still perfect with our Fugu Vodka for a veggie-forward Bloody Mary. Or try a true classic, the Red Snapper, by mixing it with our Old Grove Gin. But no matter your choice, never let tradition dictate taste.

 

cutwater_maitai

 

 

 

Mai Tai Mix – Beach culture’s quintessential cocktail seems to never go out of style. Our Mai Tai Mix serves up a refreshing twist on this Tiki classic. We start with the essentials—pineapple, lime and other citrus—then add a splash of guava for an extra burst of tropical flavor. Simply mix with some Three Sheets Rum and ice, add garnish, then take it easy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unconventional yet refined, Cutwater explores and expands the art of distilling.  Pick up a bottle today and enjoy!
