Cooperstown’s Triple Play

Cooperstown Distillery Triple Play: Got a serious drinkin’ baseball fan that needs a gift? Who doesn’t? (It was just the All-Star game, folks!)

It turns out Cooperstown’s got more than the Hall of Fame and the hots for Natty Bumppo; the town’s namesake distillery is crafting fine spirits, and, even better, packaging the heck out of them. We’re talking bottles shaped like baseballs, three in a box.

It’s not all marketing flash, either. Both the Beanball Bourbon and American Whiskey (which still leads with corn in its mash — how U.S.A.) clock in at 90 proof and are fine variations on what whiskey can be. The first is a bit high and tight, the second a bit spicier — both rich with caramel but hold their alcohol punch. The Doubleday Vodka is smooth enough for sipping but also fine for cocktails — the white wheat base keeps it hearty yet neutral.
