FACT: CALVADOS IS NOT MADE WITH APPLES ALONE While many people refer to it as an apple brandy, pears are also allowed in Calvados. The Northern part of Calvados, particularly the appellation Pays d'Auge, has a softer soil more conducive to the shallow roots of apple trees. Nearly all Calvados from the Pays d'Auge is made with apples alone. In contrast, the southern appellation of Calvados, the Domfrontais, has clay and limestone soil much more suited to the strong, deep roots of pear trees.More info

Grab n go undiluted cocktails from Fred Jerbis. Years ago forager and herbalist Fred Cremasco found a recipe book from the late 1800s, which contained dozens of recipes for vermouth, amaros, bitters and other kinds of natural, medicinal concoctions. A Friuli native, he was inspired to set out to recreate these recipes of old. To do so, Cremasco grows all kinds of botanicals, and either purchases or forages wild ones from a local national preserve, which the government allows him to do on a special basis. His gin is botanically-focused, with emphasis on bark and herbal notes with juniper in a supporting role, and he made an extra dry vermouth especially for this Gin Martini.More info

Available only for delivery and pickup within SF From the producer: Handcrafted in small batch copper-pot stills, Empress 1908 Gin is a collaboration between Victoria Distillers and the legendary Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia. On top of traditional botanicals, we add a signature blend of black tea served at the Empress Hotel and butterfly pea blossom, an exotic herb that balances the traditional citrus notes of gin with a warm herbal earthiness, and gives the gin its natural indigo colour. Empress 1908’s combination of exquisite taste, delicate aroma, soft texture, and remarkable presentation provide the perfect base for a new aesthetic of cocktail creation and enjoyment.More info

From the producer: Our London Dry Gin was born out of a desire to see gin production return to the city where it earned its name. With a nod to traditional hand crafted production, our gin combines traditional copper pot distillation with a recipe that wouldn't look unfamiliar to an eighteenth century Master Distiller. The quintessential expression of a classic London Dry Gin. Bold, complex and aromatic – smooth enough for a Martini, yet rich and balanced, perfect for a G&T.More info
