Crafted Cocktails

 Another side of our exploration is that of the Crafted Cocktail, from it's origins, through it's evolutionary influences through history, and today's craft distillery explosions influence on them. As fascinated as we are with all things whiskey, it's also fun to explore other paths. Much like the Bourbon Revolution occurring over this past decade or so, so to the new Craft Distillery movement is reaching a very intriguing point. 
We hope here to explore not only the cocktails origins, but incorporate the burgeoning New Hampshire and New England craft distillery creations being introduced today. Where we can, we are using only the best of what the local businesses have to offer.
