• Manhattan Moonshine & Three Hunters Vodka Drink Ideas

Hey gang, Valkor here. Valentine’s Day, for us guys, is the day we make a mad dash for the area shops to find the perfect gift to show that special someone just how much we mean to them. Usually it means flowers, candy and dinner, topping it all off with sex to seal the deal. Of course it’s more than that and each one of us spends the day differently. Most guys will keep the event indoors. And why not as you have more control over the situation, plus you’re that much closer to the bedroom. Ahem. Well if you’re staying in this year, then we have a couple of beverages that you can share to “enhance” the evening. And even if you’re going solo or just spending Valentine’s Day with friends and family, why not try your hand at bartending and making some fun drinks? Check it out, we’re bringing you Manhattan Moonshine and Three Hunters Vodka.

Taken from their respective press release:

Mahattan Moonshine - was created to be the first that is TRUE to authentic Moonshine. Many moonshines are entering the market, but until now most haven’t been taken seriously due to the gimmicky jug-style bottles, or mason jar packaging. In actuality, the majority of spirits that produced during Prohibition were not made in the back-woods, but produced by sophisticated distilleries just operating in secret. Manhattan Moonshine is bottled is a sleek art deco decanter because REAL moonshine deserves to be taken seriously with the ability to be put up against other superior traditional whiskeys. This superiority and formulation of grains, oats, honey, rye results in an unaged Whiskey that can be sipped like traditional premium Whiskeys, but also opens the door to using whiskey in the flourishing cocktail craze.

Three Hunters Vodka - is all about choice. We live in a time when some of the most important choices we make come prepackaged and predetermined by companies who know nothing about us. The decisions we make about the things we put in our bodies are constantly manipulated by clever and misleading advertising, and misconceptions about nutrition and health. At Three Hunters, our lifestyle drives these decisions, not market research. We made this vodka for us: a bunch of kettle-bell swingin’, marathon running, adventure race enthusiasts who, at the end of a long hard day, like to enjoy a drink or two. The result is a spirit that is harvested, distilled and bottled in locations less than 15 miles from each other, using only grapes and berries. That’s it! No added sugars, no gluten and no artificial flavors. Just vodka; clean, simple and damn good. Three Hunters are not just three friends making vodka; Three Hunters are all of us who know who we are and what we want.
