Buy American! I don’t just say that out of patriotism, I say that out of taste. If pleasing patriotism and taste buds at the same time is your idea of life, liberty, and the pursuit of drunkenness, you need to look into Caddell & Williams (), keepers/sellers of a brilliant portfolio of craft distillers. There you’ll find the utterly delicious Hangar 1 Vodka, which uses brandy-distillation methods that impart real flavors to a Fraser River Raspberry or Citron Buddha’s Hand. Then there’s St. George Whiskey, full of oaky peaty goodness, and perhaps the best brandy in the world-really-from Mendocino County, the exquisite portfolio of Germain-Robin.
