While the kids are enjoying their Easter baskets, we adults should be enjoying something of our own—a basketful of shots!
Shots Box delivers curated craft, artisanal, and small-batch spirits to your doorstep. It’s a beautiful, tasty thing.
We love how Shots Box is trying to sell the idea of buying their product:
"Easter is synonymous with family celebrations, but getting along with family can often be a challenge," said JC Stock, Chief Executive Officer of Shots Box. "A tasting event featuring these Spring whiskeys is a great way to bring people around the table, break bread and simply enjoy each others' company."
Or—escape your stupid Uncle Larry who won’t stop trying to make nice with your single, non-age appropriate friends that popped in to say “Hi.” Not that we’re speaking from personal experience…
Anywho, imagine tasting these spirits, which might make you see a spirit or two:
Old Forester Straight Bourbon Whiskey, 43% alcohol by volume (ABV): Created in 1870 and manufactured in Lousiville, Kentucky, Old Forester is the only bourbon continuously distilled and marketed by the founding family before, during and after Prohibition. At 86 proof, Old Forester delivers a genuine bourbon experience, with rich, full flavor and a smooth character that is ideal for sipping neat, on the rocks, with a splash of water or in a classic cocktail.
Boldt Clear Whiskey, 47% ABV: Manufactured in Humboldt County, California, Boldt is Humboldt County's very first whiskey and uses only four ingredients in its Clear Whiskey. Filtered water reinfused with select minerals, locally grown and freshly milled grains, enzymes that help convert starches into sugars and yeast straight from the heart of Bourbon Country.
Jameson Irish Whiskey Cold Brew, 30% ABV: Made out of Ireland, Jameson Cold Brew Irish Whiskey has a light floral fragrance, peppered with spicy wood and sweet notes. The perfect balance of spicy, nutty and vanilla notes with hints of sweet sherry and exceptional smoothness.
