Berkshire Mountain Distillers Gin & Tonic
Berkshire Mountain Distillers’ Greylock Gin & Tonic is produced and bottled in small batches at BMD’s Sheffield, MA distillery. With this unique, innovative take on pre-mixed cocktails, Berkshire Mountain Distillers’ Greylock Gin & Tonic will be the first to offer consumers a handcrafted, ready-to-drink gin and tonic.

The Greylock Gin & Tonic is produced using Berkshire Mountain Distillers’ award-winning Greylock Gin and house-made tonic. BMD’s Greylock Gin is handcrafted in small batches with a proprietary blend of seven botanicals, which is then combined with their house tonic – made from cinchona bark and a unique blend of spices – creating a natural, perfectly tan gin and tonic. “We worked hard to develop a tonic that would truly compliment our Greylock Gin so that each component is distinct yet working synergistically to create an exquisite, ready-to-drink cocktail,” said Chris Weld, owner and founder of Berkshire Mountain Distillers.

Tasting Notes: Crisp, dry, full and subtly sweet with citrus and floral notes as well as hints of juniper, ginger, allspice and cinchona bark. 13.33% ABV.

FEW Spirits
In a world chock-full of mass-produced spirits, only few remain truly handcrafted, and small-batched. (If you’re reading this, you’ve indeed found the finest.) FEW Spirits are a new take on timeless distilling techniques, and transcend the oft-ordinary taste we’ve all grown accustomed to. Distilled from the very best grains, aged to perfection, and bottled under their own roof, FEW remains in their own hands until distribution.

For nearly a century, Evanston, Illinois, the home of the Temperance Movement, was a dry city. In dire need of liquor laws that weren’t penned the same year as the invention of the band-aid, FEW’s master distiller overturned century-old prohibition laws to become Evanston’s first distiller of grain spirits within the city limits. Alas!

Keep an eye out for this top-notch distillery, and welcome them to New Jersey!
