Liquid Assets, 995 Pontiac Avenue, Cranston, RI will be hosting a tasting on Saturday May 12, 2018 from 4pm to 7pm.

Dutchcraft
A plain vodka from Holland that is easy to mix with your juice or soda and very tasty in any cocktail that calls for vodka. Can also be made on the rocks with a garnish.  A great buy at $19.99 per 1.75L.

Capriccio Sangria
Capriccio Sparkling Sangria is made from an excellent recipe with premium grape wine, real fruit juices (pineapple, orange and grape) and 100% natural fruit flavors such as pomegranate. It has no preservatives, and it is the only sangria on the market with carbonation. It’s bursting with fruits and bubbles!

James Oliver Rye Whiskey
Prior to Prohibition, rye whiskey was the staple ingredient of classic cocktails such as the Old Fashioned, the Manhattan and the Whiskey Sour. Spicer and more robust than malt whisky, rye was so popular that George Washington distilled it at his estate in Mount Vernon. As distilleries across the country were forced to close their doors due to Prohibition, however, bootleggers began distilling gin instead of rye, and for good reason gin didn’t require aging under the watchful eye of a master distiller and its true flavors could be hidden behind a mask of botanicals. As Americans grew accustomed to gin, rye whiskey became an anachronism.

James Oliver American Whiskey
This is a blend of three different individual whiskies all aged separately in different types of barrels, 7-year-old Corn whiskey, 4-year-old whiskey, straight Rye whiskey. Finished and blended together in old sherry barrels for 6 months, James Oliver American Whiskey is a smooth satisfying sipper, or a unique spirit in any whiskey cocktail.
