Propelling this move- ment across the city—and the country!—has been a bevy of beautiful artisan spirits, products made by hand, with great attention to detail and a special story behind each bottle. Now, with Southern Wine & Spirits' innovative Artisanal Group portfolio, boutique brands are front and center, and THE TASTING PANEL is here to help shine an even brighter spotlight on the craft spirit! Brands had ten minutes to present our panel of L.A.'s hottest mixologists with a craft cocktail and a neat taste of each spirit. From speakeasy-ready sippers to culinary cocktail concoctions, we documented what made the participating craft spirits stand out! edited by Meridith May / photos by Jeremy Ball The Artisanal Group catalog from SWS/American Wine & Spirits of CA is an armory of some of the coolest craft spirits available today.
