A refreshingly different drinks supplier


On 4th July 1776, the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States.


Each year on Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event, celebrate with them with a glass of the cold stuff from across the pond! (Although, we all know these delicious drinks aren't just to be enjoyed for one day!)


Inspired by the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Sierra Nevada beers are designed to be as bold, wild and unwavering as those storied granite peaks.

Our year-round collection of Sierra Nevada beers include their Pale Ale with its unique piney and grapefruit aromas and complex and bold flavour. Torpedo Extra IPA is the first beer to feature "Hop Torpedo"- a revolutionary dry-hopping device that controls how much hop aroma is imparted into beer without adding additional bitterness, and their Hop Hunter IPA, a complex and intensely aromatic beer.


Alternatively, take a trip to Chicago and find out if Goose Island's beer will be 'the best beer you'll drink'. With the best hops sourced from around America you will truly get a taste of the vast country in every drop of their beer.

One of the main locations is Elk Mountain Farms, Idaho - where Goose Island see the soil and plant life as more than just the earth... appreciate the vastness of this farm in this short fascinating video.

 

 

Washington Island, Wisconsin is at the heart and soul of everything produced by Death's Door Spirits.

Schoolcraft's Original Wisconsin Wondermint Schnapps Liqueur is the first and only artisan craft peppermint schnapps in the world. Wondermint is a delightful blend of pure grain spirits with three times distilled peppermint extract, bitter almond, rosewater and a spike of absinthe. Minty, sweet and herbaceous.

As for the handsome gentleman on the bottle, it's Henry Rowe Schoolcraft, the noted American geographer and geologist, who made accounts of the Wisconsin territory during his 1832 expedition to find the source of the Mississippi River. He noted at the time that Wisconsin Schnapps was available for 4 cents a dram!!

We think Schoolcraft's Original Wisconsin Schnapp's Liqueur would have been enjoyed at the time too.



Take a trip to Tincup, an old mining town set on the western side of the Rockies - named after the old cups the miners would drink from.

Distilled in honour of Colorado's first whiskey drinkers, Tincup is inspired by and made from the mountains. A blend of two great American whiskies, each aged in charred oak barrels. 'High rye' bourbon, distilled and aged in Indiana, is blended with a small amount of Colorado single malt whiskey resulting in a classic American style cut with with Rocky mountain water; Tincut is a bold with a spicy finish.



 

Handcrafted in Maine, Cold River Vodka do everything with passion and patience in a commitment to make vodka the right way rather than the popular way.

Triple distilling their spirit in a copper pot still delivers the perfect level of refinement that they are after. Et voila - high quality vodka that displays true American spirit and great taste.

Built from the ground up with Maine potatoes and water from Maine's Cold River, this classic gluten-free vodka is super-premium Martini-quality that stands amongst the world's most sophisticated spirits.

 


Taste a true flavour of America with Soda Folk. Uncommon flavours for uncommon people.

As with Tincup Whiskey, Soda Folk's home state of Colorado is famous for its skilled distillers and craft brewers, so they've teamed up with a little brewery high in the Rocky Mountains to help produce Soda Folk. Made in small batches, using only the highest quality ingredients, we think they're some of the best American soft drinks around. And we're pretty sure you will, too.

Ever wondered who these Soda Folk were? Well...

Cream Soda - they call him The Preacher. Colorado resident Fred Lewis spent his early years in the US Air Force, becoming its boxing champ and one of a small handful to have knocked down the great Muhammad Ali.

Although ultimately losing his fight with Ali by a single point, Fred never stopped being a heavy hitter. Moving to Colorado Springs in '69, he established a boxing club called 3D. Those D's stood for desire, discipline and dedication, three qualities that spread into Fred's other calling; fighting the Lord's fight.

Ordained as a minister in '75, this Preacher was never content to let the crowds flock to the church, instead taking his message on the road in the form of selected scriptures painted across the side of his pickup truck. Whether you're a lover of the Lord or not, you gotta respect the man who takes every fight head-on.

That's why they chose hard-hitting Fred 'The Preacher' Lewis to grace their smooth Cream Soda cans.

Root Beer - Colorado Springs bike mechanic Brian Gravestock has taken his skill and added a whole new spin: donating finished bikes to those in need across his local community.

Brian has run Bike Clinic Too since '09, to support the original Bike Clinic he founded in '93 with friend Peter Sprunger-Froese. Bikes are donated, repaired by Brian and his team, then given to local homeless folk, offering them a freedom they would struggle to achieve alone.

A bike isn't just a method of getting from one place to another. It is that 'wind in the hair' freedom to move swiftly, to escape urban life, to just hit the saddle and ride. Such freedoms form the roots of a healthy mind, which is why they chose Brian to grace their cans of craft Root Beer.

Here's to you Brian (and the rest of Soda Folk!).
