About Spirits

Our spirits are sourced from suppliers around the world to keep your business stocked with the drinks your customers demand, from the classics to boutique producers.

 

 

Spirits are made by distilling fermented beverages which increases their alcoholic strength. Whereas wine ranges from 8-20% alcohol, spirits are typically 40-50% alcohol or higher. The common alcoholic measurement for spirits is proof, which is twice the percentage by volume. I.e. a spirit with 40% alcohol is 80 proof.

 

 

Popular unaged or white spirits include vodka, gin, tequila, and white rum. Popular oak-aged or brown spirits include American whiskey (including bourbon), brandy, Canadian whisky, cognac, dark rum, Irish whisky, and Scotch whiskey. Spirits can be blended with other ingredients and consumed as cocktails, or enjoyed alone (straight or neat) or over ice.
