We are proud members of the Sailor Jerry Rum tattoo club, having been first inked last year, at the Norman Collins 108th birthday celebration.  We are looking forward to adding to our Sailor Jerry Tattoos collection.

For those who don’t know, Norman Collins, the godfather of old-school American tattooing. He pioneered innovations in tattooing such as inventing the color purple for ink, promoted the use of clean and sterile needles and inspired future generations of tattoo artists. At 19, Norman Collins joined the U.S. Navy which exposed him to the art and culture of Southeast Asia; after his service, he made Honolulu his home where he built his reputation as the father of old school American tattoo and established his now-famous tattoo parlor on Hotel Street.

Tasting Panel Magazine Presents the 2013 Tour of Double Gold Winners

Once again, thanks to Tasting Panel magazine, who hosted the nationwide wine and spirits tasting tour of the 2013 Double Gold Medal and Premium Award winners of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, we got to enjoy the finest from the alcohol industry. This year, the 7th year of the tasting our, 22 Spirits and 25 wines were available at SD26 during the New York segment of the tour, for attendees to sample and enjoy. The last time we attended, we almost didn’t make it out so this time we concentrated on spirit brands we were not familiar with, check them out below:

Red Leg Spiced Rum – Double Gold Medal Winner

Miodula Presidental Blend Honey Vodka – Best Flavored Vodka & Double Gold Medal Winner

Gran Duque d’Alba Oro Solera Gran Reserva Especial Brandy XO – Best Spanish Brandy & Double Gold Medal Winner

Chila ‘Orchata Cinnamon Cream Rum – Best Cream Liqueur, Best Liqueur & Double Gold Medal Winner

Arta Añejo Tequila – Double Gold Medal Winner

Huizache Reposado Tequila – Double Gold Medal Winner

Peel Bananacello Liqueur – Double Gold Medal Winner

We loved just about everything we tasted (although we were extremely careful with the tequila and gin…those two are dangerous). We devoured the Peel Bananacello and we’re not ashamed to say we went back for more; the Miodula Presidental Blend Honey Vodka was indeed the best honey-flavored vodka we’ve ever tasted and we’re looking forward to adding the Red Leg Spiced Rum to our drink wish list.
