Private Edition 9: Spìos
The chandeliers glisten, strains of piano music float on the air – and men and women laugh and chatter, raising their glasses in elegant toasts. This is early 20th-century America. And, in the most prestigious saloons, American rye whiskey was the spirit of choice.
A century on, the long-lost taste of America’s golden whiskey era is born again in Glenmorangie Spìos, the latest annual release in our Private Edition series. Now in its ninth year, this acclaimed collection of rare and intriguing malts is renowned by aficionados for showcasing the Highland Distillery’s passion for innovation. And, as he reflects on the bygone elegance which inspired Glenmorangie’s first single malt whisky ever fully matured in American ex-rye whiskey casks, our Director of Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsden, calls rye whiskey’s past to mind.
Soulard Island Aged Rum
Soulard Island Spirits was born from one man’s desire to live life to the fullest. Founder Fred Barrera has built his legacy by helping others fulfill their desire to celebrate. From building The Aries Company, one of St. Louis’ top party rental and production companies, to Gran Cru Cigars in Soulard, a proper smoking lounge.
Soulard Island Spirits takes Fred’s passion for crafting exceptional, award winning Rum and moves it out of his basement, and into your liquor cabinet. Christine says thanks. Our spirits are crafted and barreled in small batches with Aged Rum and Smoked Honey Rum for variety. Speaking of variety, we can’t wait to pop the bung on some special projects waiting in the barrel rack, but patience…..patience
With a dedicated, family oriented team, and the help of a fancy Istill from the Neatherlands, we at Soulard Island will bring the taste of Fred’s travels throughout the Caribbean home to St. Louis. Try a taste for yourself!
