sometimes i remember just how ridiculously nice it is to live here.

we toured few distillery yesterday and got a special tour of the rackhouse. wanted to make a joke about how they had only a "few" barrels - but really, it was impressive the amount of cool projects they had aging in the space. huge thanks to @miguel_gonzo for letting the cocktail courier team tour and taste some chai tea gin outta the barrel. distilleries are magical ✨πŸ₯ƒ

citrus is the way to my heart β˜€οΈπŸ‹πŸ’›

i call this cocktail: whiskey. in a glass.
