It’s one of the tougher categories we attempt to tackle here on Northwest Liquor Night, but it’s also one of the most delicious. There are so many fantastic Liqueurs and Cordials being produced locally, and we have a couple of them on tonight’s show.
We’ll taste two delicious Washington liqueurs first as a straight shot. Then with the same liquor, we’ll taste it mixed as a cocktail…giving you two different perspectives. In Episode 8, we’re tasting:
Rhubarb Cordial - Stein Distillery, Joseph OR
Calisaya - Elixir, Eugene OR
You’re one-up on the panelists: All they know is that they’re liqueurs. They won’t know the names or brands until after they’ve talked about them and picked a favorite as a straight-shot and a favorite as a cocktail.
In Episode 8, host Brian Calvert is joined by panelists Marina Rockinger of Star 101.5, Seth Wayne and Denise Whitaker of KOMO 4 News, and Nick Eaton from the SeattlePI.com.
We filmed this episode inside Captive Spirits in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. This is a small distiller that specializes in gin, and it was really great to meet the crew. And Holly, the food was outstanding!
