My labels are in (a while ago) made by the talented Stephany. It includes my family crest and motto, sine timore (Without Fear). It was a great way to make the year's experiments look great and feel kind professional. I had to craft some great bottles and bitters to do these labels justice, but the feedback on the Poor Man's Pappy, Aged and a Spice Rum, Pumpkin Spice, Apple Cinnamon, Winter Spice, and Cinnamon were great.
Bitters last year included Cherry Vanilla, Orange, Aromatic, Grapefruit, and Ginger Citrus.
I also tried my hand at an allpsice dram and a lavender liqueur which were both great, even though I didn't get a nice purple color like a Creme Yvette, but the Aviation was great. Both were super simple. The lavender liqueur was a lavender tea with simple syrup and a brandy to fortify it. The allpsice was a rum infusion of allpsice berries with a brown sugar simple syrup.
Currently, I am working on a Cherry Vanilla repeat and have some ideas brewing for a few other ones. I also am finishing a Poor Man's Pappy in my old rum barrel to get that sweeter notes from the rum. I hope its great.
