Wow, this could slim down my liquor cabinet. Handy in a pinch, at least.
You have tons of vodka lying around. Maybe your friends left it. Maybe it was on sale. Maybe you bought it because it’s cheap and you heard you could make it into whatever booze you want. What?
Sounds like bullshit, right? We thought so, too. But that’s what Still Spirits claims its magical little flavor pouches can do. Just add vodka! The results were shocking.
Still Spirits Top Shelf are little sachets or bottles of flavorings. They’re intended to enhance neutral spirits, because neutral spirits, well, they don’t taste like anything. If you want real bourbon, you have to age those spirits in charred barrels for years. Who has that kind of time? So Still Spirits made it easy. You just take your neutral spirit and you add one of their flavor pouches, and voila, instant bourbon. Or gin. Or dark rum. Or tequila. Or absinthe. There are literally dozens of flavors.
These were way, way better than we expected. Sure, you could just buy a real bottle of bourbon or gin. But a lot of folks want to experiment with other liquors without investing in a whole bottle. And other people might wind up with a handle of leftover vodka and no idea what to do with it. If that’s the case, then the pouches, at about $5 each, are totally worth it. Drinkers who want to take it further can dive into individual flavors like Cedar Oak, and Peat Smoke.
