There’s a cool new company making spirits for bartenders. Via Forbes, 86 Co is making vodka, rum, gin, and tequila. Based on Larry Olmsted’s reviews, the gin is good and the rum is perfect for mixing, which is what a bartender would be doing. Unfortunately he didn’t try the vodka.
The cool part about 86 Co is the attention they paid to the bottle design. With multiple gripping points and fluid measurements imprinted on the bottle, everything on this bottle is geared toward providing the most functionality possible for bartenders. They have a great blueprint PDF of the bottle that shows the design decisions.
