Christmas Spirits & Holiday Food Gift Ideas 5

Anyone with a passion for cooking would love to unwrap a bottle of Laudemio Frescobaldi as the perfect home & kitchen gift. Laudemio Frescobaldi is a high-quality olive oil imported from Italy, intended to be used as a finishing oil (not for cooking or baking) to top off and elevate the flavor profile of your favorite dishes. The olive oil possesses an inviting aromatic scent of artichoke and fresh herbs, as well as a light peppery and buttery taste — great for topping off a variety of dishes like pasta, salads and breads. The olives picked for this oil are harvested and bottled within 24 hours. Available on Amazon.Christmas Spirits & Holiday Food Gift Ideas 6        
 

Easy to find and budget-friendly, keto diet lovers have turned to this kitchen must-have: Extra virgin olive oil from Spain. While many might think of EVOO as a simple salad dressing swap, those in the know have discovered that quality extra virgin olive oil is a healthful ingredient with hundreds of varieties, each one with distinct, nuanced flavor profiles as complex as those used to describe and enjoy wine.

Delicious and delightful, Casas de Hualdo’s award-winning, single-source extra virgin olive oil is endorsed by José Andrés and now available in the U.S. With 250 mL bottles under $20, find one that will serve as the centerpiece ingredient for a sweet dessert like ice cream or a savory dish such as soup.

  • Arbequina has fruity notes alongside bitterness and spice. Other identifiers for the nose and mouth include flavors of artichoke, tomato plant, apple and banana.
  • Cornicabra is marked with herbal nuances and aromas of olive leaf. Meaning one-horned goat, this varietal also offers hints of green grass, green almond as well as fresh flavors of arugula and lamb lettuce.
  • Picual lingers on the palate. It is very complex, with aromas of green leaf, green banana and peppermint.

Casas de Hualdo controls the manufacturing process from grove to grocer, thus it can offer exceptional quality, flavor and health benefits. Its extra virgin olive oils are extracted within as little as two to three hours of harvest, and no more than six. To ensure freshness and maximize health benefits such as preventing chronic disease, the estate only bottles the oils on demand.

 

In the U.S., Casas de Hualdo can be found in these locations:

  • Sprouts
  • Fresh Market
  • Kings Food Markets
  • Fairway (New York)
  • El Mercado (Little Spain, New York)
  • Lowes Food (North Carolina)
  • Independent and natural stores (primarily East Coast)

In Florida, Sprouts carries Arbequina and Picual and The Fresh Market carries Arbequina, Cornicabra and Picual.

 

Premium extra virgin olive oil is a must-have kitchen gift this holiday season as more Americans discover a sophisticated, nuanced and heart-healthy ingredient that compliments different foods and adds a touch of elegance to any meal.

Dashfire Single Flavor Family of Bitters

These bitters are for the creative cocktail and culinary minds out there. Direct and to the point but also wildly complex, these flavors add their own element. They also meld well together for complexity and true mastery of flavor. 

Dashfire Vintage Orange No. 1

Our signature product, Dashfire Vintage Orange Bitters is Minnesota’s first (and only) barrel-aged bitters.  Fresh orange rind is combined with quality bourbon and select spices, and then aged in a Minnesota-made white oak barrel to incorporate the flavor and sugars of the oak. Perfect for the classics like Old Fashioneds and Manhattans.

Vagabond Series

This series of bitters comes from our passion for travel, cultures and flavors.

Mr. Lee’s

…was the name my students in China gave me when I was teaching there.  The flavors are one of a kind but mirror the flavor of Chinese five-spice. All of my favorite Chinese spices are found here,: ginger, galanga, mandarin, lemon grass, sichuan peppercorn, star anise and many more.

…………………

Mole

This wonderful chocolate, spicy and slightly savory bitter was specifically designed to compliment tequila and mezcal cocktails but also tastes great with bitter orange Campari cocktails. It can bring flavor as a bitter or culinary partner, bringing the kitchen to the bar and the bar to the kitchen.

…………………

Chai’Walla 

Inspired by our time in India and Sri Lanka this bitter is full of spices. Made with black tea, ginger juice, cardamom, cinnamon, clove and black pepper the flavor will transport you straight to the street chai’walla tea vendors of India. Add a few drops to a cocktail or to a glass of milk and sugar.

Töst is an incredibly versatile and delicious dry sparkling beverage of white tea, white cranberry and ginger.

It’s great to have on hand for friends and family that want a festive non-alcholic beverage on its own or as an ingredient in a mocktail, such as a Strawberry Plum Tösted Bellini, Tösted Grapefruit Fizz, Tösted Cranberry-Pomegranate Bellini with Lime or a Töst Mockmosa.

And, those looking for a good cocktail mixer, will find that Töst serves up refreshing drinks when mixed with vodka, bourbon, gin and rum. Blackberry Basil Mohitos, Rum ’n’ Töst, Rocking Rum Punch, Kentucky Töst, Tösted Clover and Tösted Pom Pom are just a few of Töst inspired cocktails to serve during the holidays.

You can find recipes for both mocktails and cocktails, as well as more about Töst – including where to find it, how to order it and how to pronounce it – on the Töst website. There’s even a tutorial showing the making of a Blackberry Maple Mohito (under drinks).

Voted the Best Flavored Vodka in the world in 2018 and 2019*, Dixie Black Pepper Vodka is the must-have staple for any Bloody Mary or oyster shooter. We steep our core Dixie Southern Vodka with Serrano peppers for a week, then infuse with Sichuan and Madagascar black peppercorns, resulting in a perfectly balanced pepper vodka with a clear color and aroma of char roasted and marinated green and chili peppers. The forward flavor comes from the Madagascar peppercorn, a cooked and dried fruit from a flowering vine of the Piperaceae family. As the backdrop, we use both the Sichuan peppercorn, dried hulls of the Rue family and fresh Serrano peppers for a bright, fruit flavor. 97 calories per 1.5 oz.

There’s a story with every bottle. Inside and out.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2019 | GIFTS FOR EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST 805

This is the story about not giving up and not giving a fxck what others think. Fed up with all that is mass-produced for the masses, we set out to do vodka like vodka’s never been done before. Our way. So we rolled up our sleeves and handcrafted our very first batch out of an ex-laundromat in the Pacific Northwest. A true original vodka made with nothing more than determination, diligence and a whole lotta “Damn, this better work.” We’re proud to say Blood x Sweat x Tears Vodka™ is spirit like no other. Because it captures ours. And the more hard work we put into it, the more our hard work comes easy.

Maker’s Mark®This one changed the way we think of bourbon, all because one man changed the way he thought about making it. Bill Samuels, Sr., simply wanted a whisky he would enjoy drinking. Never bitter or sharp, Maker’s Mark® is made with soft red winter wheat, instead of the usual rye, for a one-of-a-kind, full-flavored bourbon that’s easy to drink. To ensure consistency, we rotate every barrel by hand and age our bourbon to taste, not time. Each and every bottle of Maker’s® is still hand-dipped in our signature red wax at our distillery in Loretto, Ky., just like Bill, Sr., would have wanted.
