Spirits with Soul from GrandTen Distilling

 

We all like to kick back with a cold one from time to time…even more so when we can support the boys distilling down in Southie. When you think GrandTen, picture small batches of gin, vodka, and rum distilled in copper. Yep, these are definitely some thoughtfully-crafted cocktails. And if you develop a hankering for GrandTen’s signature Wire Works American Gin (which, well, you will) you’ll be psyched to hear you can grab a glass at Deep Ellum, Back Bar, Eastern Standard and more.

 Owned and operated by Matthew Nuernberger (the Babson biz whiz) and Spencer McMinn (the chemist), GrandTen Distilling is the real deal, like their site says, “Every step, from choosing the raw ingredients to bottling and labeling, is done by hand.”

How does this super-local gin taste? We’ll defer to Urban Daddy on that one, “Two fingers’ worth in a goblet hits the palate nicely, with a very smooth entry and notes of vanilla and coriander. Plus, it uses Massachusetts cranberries and nine secret-recipe botanicals to give it a citrusy, floral punch.”

The BLFF scoop: Buy a VIP ticket for Friday’s Local Craft Brewfest and get your own feel for GrandTen’s cocktails.

Mark your calendar: For GrandTen and Fire Puncher Vodka’s “It’s Bloody Time” Bloody Mary recipe contest on October 28th. Here’s the Eventbrite link for all the details.
