If you haven’t had any liquor from Durham Distlery well what are you waiting for? Our favorite is the Damn Fine Liqueurs – the Mocha one specifically. It is the perfect drink for after a meal. Also if you want to feel really good about drinking it, the liqueurs are made with local chocolate and has no artificial ingredients.

Apparently the world seems to agree that the Durham Distlery is pretty great too! They introduced the gin to the market just four years ago and are already receiving lots of accolades. In January, The World Gin Awards named Durham Distillery’s CONNIPTION Navy Strength Gin the “Best” in the United States in the Navy Strength category. The World Gin Awards selects the very best gins among the internationally recognized gin styles and promotes the world’s best gins to consumers.

What makes their gin so good? Ingredients like Indian coriander, caraway, rosemary, and cardamom juxtapose the classic juniper and cassia. Citrus and fresh, sweet accents of citrus and fig are individually vacuum distilled at room temperature, then blended into the gin base, providing an aromatic finish.

If you haven’t got a chance to try Durham Distillery for yourself, you can find them at your local ABC store or visit them online here. Once you get a bottle, join me in raising a glass by congratulating the folks at the Durham Distillery. Cheers!
