WO LIQUORS From Jagir :

 
     1) V.J.O.P. Signature edition series from SIPSMITH Independent Spirits Distillery , $59.99  a bottle, hand-crafted in small batches, : " IMagining the botanicals as components in an orchestra, here we have taken the lead instrument - juniper - and amplified its presence in the ensemble, and then raised the decibles by increasing the proof alcohol. The result is our very own symphony in ' J Major : V.J.O.P. - Very Juniper Over Proof gin. ' Batch No. VJOP / 00014 .... YES!
 
     2) Sagamore Spring Fed  Spirit RYE American Whiskey, American owned Straight Rye Whiskey, $44.99 a bottle with 41.5% alcohol by volume, Batch 1B, Bottle 58, Bottler UP . " Our spirit flows from a spring house, built in 1909, at Maryland's Sagamore Farm,naturally filtered spring water, fed from a limestone aquifer.
The same water that fuels our champion thoroughbreds, also cuts the rich spice of our rye, creating a spirit as revolutionary as America's risk-takers and history makers. Our story is one of passion, of old meeting new, and crafting a timeless American whiskey."
 
I like this, beautiful deep color, and the bottle is unique in shape, too : conversation pieces all of this, fuel the tongue and palate and mind and heart and firing the guts, too!
