Luxe up your bar cart with divinely inspired primo liquors.
Premium brands are crafting stories as well as spirits, with an emphasis on factors—organic ingredients, rare blends, limited availability—that resonate with connoisseurs.
Sales of luxury spirits are climbing dramatically, and distillers have responded with ever-more-exclusive products and limited editions to wet the whistles of discriminating drinkers—and provide the ideal opportunity to cultivate the ultimate bar cart.
Japan’s most popular whisky, The Yamazaki 18 Single Malt ($475) has a deep amber color accentuated by mature autumn fruits.
A blend of select prime agave aged at least two and a half years gives Tequila Don Julio 1942 ($109) its warm, rich flavor.
Tanqueray No. Ten ($37) gets its bright, clean taste from the inclusion of citrus that makes it ripe for sipping and blended cocktails.
Winter wheat, Gensac spring water, and cognac were used to create Grey Goose VX ($75), which comes in a distinctive bottle reminiscent of a French decanter.
