The Perfect Cocktail: It’s More Simple than You Think

September 3, 2014 Company News & Announcements

​In our Santa Fe Spirits tasting rooms we love experimenting with different cocktails, and with such great spirits, who wouldn't want to have some fun? However, you can't pretend that only have five spirits isn't a challenge when it comes to creating new cocktails. There's only so much you can do with five spirits to work with. So how do we come up with new and unique cocktails that can showcase our award winning products?The answer is as simple as syrup... simple syrup. Now sometimes people get confused when they see simple syrup listed as part of a cocktail recipe, but let me tell you, it's called simple for a reason. Simple syrup is a mix of sugar and water.. easy right? The ratio can vary anywhere from 1:1 to 2:1 sugar to water and the water just needs to be boiling hot. Boil water on the stove, add sugar, stir, let cool, and voila, simple syrup!

Glencairn glass

The Perfect Whiskey Glass

​Its been called a tulip, its been called a snifter, its been called a glencairn.... but no matter the name, what is it that makes this glass the PERFECT WHISKEY GLASS?The glencairn glass was originally developed by Glencairn Crystal (go figure) in an attempt to make a glass that could mimic the glasses that are used in whiskey labs and distilleries around the world in order for whiskey producers to get the most effective taste and create the best product. The glencairn glass is one of a few types of glasses that have been designed specifically with whiskey in mind, but it is the only glass that has been endorsed by the Scotch Whisky Association.It is little wonder, given this history, that we at Santa Fe Spirits have chosen the glencairn glass as the ideal way to serve our mesquite smoked single malt whiskey, Colkegan. Although Colkegan is not technically a Scotch because it is made in the United States, it is made using the same malting and distillation process as a traditional Scotch (if you replace peat with mesquite), and we don't want to be left out of this great glass phenomenon.

Santa Fe Spirits Expedition Vodka

But Vodka is just Vodka right?

​When I tell people that our Santa Fe Spirits Expedition Vodka is a corn based vodka, they generally look at me and either ask "what is vodka usually made from?" or "Oh, so its gluten free?"Well, each question has an interesting, so lets look at both. What is vodka usually made from? Vodka can be made from any starch or sugar rich plant, generally wheat, rye, corn, or potato (although there can be many others). Where vodka first came from is a much disputed question, but we know that the first vodka was made in Eastern Europe, and it was originally used, like Gin, as a medicine. While it is generally believed that Polish, Russian, or other European vodkas were potato based, the spirit was actually made most commonly from Rye, though the ingredients could vary far and wide dependent on the most available, and the most affordable, ingredients.

Whiskey Rebellion

July 23, 2014 Events

​Last week, Santa Fe Spirits representatives had the opportunity to attend an event in Denver called the Whiskey Rebellion that was held at The Curtis Hotel. This event was a great opportunity for Colorado locals to try whiskies from around their state as well as from both New Mexico and Wyoming. For us, it was an ideal opportunity to showcase our brand in a market that we are still breaking into. The event was put on by Water for People, a non-profit organization based in Denver that is able to bring clean water to underprivileged regions of the world.

A Western Inspired Gin

What is gin? When I tell people that come through my bar that gin is a flavored vodka they look at me like I'm crazy. But it's true! Vodka is a neutral grain spirit distilled as many times as people want in order to make it as odorless and flavorless as possible. Gin is the same neutral grain spirit infused with Juniper Berries.Where the first use of Juniper berries came from in unclear, but gin seems to have sprung up from Jenever, a spirit distilled from malt wine and made palatable by the addition of Juniper, which was also added for medicinal reasons. No matter where it started, gin is not gin without the addition of Juniper berries, and even though juniper can be found somewhere on every continent, in the U.S., we like to think of it as something southwestern. We have to deal with Juniper allergies more than almost everyone else, why not claim them as our own?

Spirits from Santa Fe Spirits

Let’s Get Started

SFS Five Products​When you think of New Mexico, what do you picture in your mind's eye? Desert sands, margaritas, dry climate, good food, Breaking Bad? What probably doesn't occur to you are artisanal hand crafted spirits. However, New Mexico (like most of the country) is jumping on the micro-distillery and micro-brewery train. And believe me, they are not about to get left behind. Several articles have come out lately touting the brilliance of the craft beer scene in the state, but what about the craft spirits?
