A whiskey adventure for you and me.
“The folks behind Bone Snapper Rye Whiskey decided early on to go with the squat Oslo bottle. This smaller bottle needed to have a lot of character to compete visually with taller, more well-established whiskeys in bars and liquor stores.
Our biggest parameter was making sure the word “RYE” leapt out at you from across a dark bar. So our revolutionary design solution? “Rye” set in angry, 150 point typography. A delightful broken bone graphic, grit and heavy lines round everything out.”
Writing on the coaster
There are some damn good bourbon concoctions being conjured up in the minds of whiskey drinkers these days. Our first Bourbon Accolade goes out to a bar in Portland this week, for taking the trend of infusion and crafting a Manhattan that quickly and quietly eclipsed its predecessors.
Simply put, they created a vanilla Manhattan. It’s moody and mellow and fits the gloomy yet intermittently sweet city of Portland well. They infused a bottle of Old Overholt rye, and anticipate a Book of Bourbon batch of vanilla bourbon soon enough.
