As the leaves start to fall and with the apple orchards in full swing, there is no better time to pair Benchmark spirits with the changing season. Retailers looking to showcase a Halloween-themed spirit, need to look no further than Red Eye Louie’s Vodquila.
Vodquila is a unique blend of vodka and tequila. The primary ingredients include vodka, 6 times distilled and made from multiple grains and tequila made from the agave plant. The skull logo’d frosted bottle is a great Halloween POS eye-catcher.
In 2014, Vodqulia won a Silver medal at the IWSC in Hong Kong and took home a Bronze medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits competition.
For your apple loving customers, retailers can highlight Yahara Bay’s Holz Apple Crisp. This liqueur is a sweet, vodka-based liqueur which brings to mind thoughts of mom’s apple pie. Perfect for a unique shot, sipping on ice or warmed with bourbon/whiskey in the fall season, this spirit is as versatile as it is tasty. With only 15% alcohol, this is the perfect spirit when you come home from a long day at the cider mill.
Try a Drunken Apple by combining 1.5 oz Yahara Bay V Bourbon and 3 oz of Holz Apple Crisp. Fill a glass with ice and add bourbon. Top with Holz Apple Crisp until desired sweetness. This cocktail can be warmed on the stove with a cinnamon stick or in the microwave for colder months.
