In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the country, and the globe, are sheltering in place to help “flatten the curve” and slow the spread of this virus. As more Americans are staying home, we’ve seen an increase in alcohol consumption over the last few months.
Are you enjoying more adult beverages than usual? Are you getting tired of your same old wine and beer? If so, why not branch out and try a new type of liquor while you’re safe at home? Listed below are five of the best liquors to taste while in quarantine.
When it comes to top-shelf bourbon whiskey, you can’t go wrong with a shot of Giant 80.
Giant 80 is a revolutionary leader in the bourbon whiskey world. An 80-proof, 40% ABV black label bourbon whiskey that features delicious hints of caramel and vanilla, this is the perfect drink to enjoy in a cocktail.
Giant 80 is one of Gulf Coast Distiller’s award-winning spirits. It received a silver medal in the San Francisco Spirit Awards and regularly ranks as one of our customers’ favorite liquors. It’s available in 50 ml, 750 ml, and 1.75 L bottles.
If you’re looking for something a bit stronger, Giant Texas Bourbon 95 Pot Still, or Giant 95 for short, is a good alternative to add to your shopping cart. Giant 95 is another award-winning whiskey. It took home a silver medal from the San Francisco Spirit Awards in 2019.
This whiskey features a uniquely deep color, complex flavor profile, and spicy aroma. It’s a true one-of-a-kind Texas-bred spirit. We distill it in the heart of Houston and age it slowly in American Oak barrels to create the incredible taste and drinking experience that our customers have grown to know and love. This is great straight up or on the rocks.
Giant 95 is available in a 750 mL bottle.
Giant Texas Bourbon’s Special Reserve 91 Proof Gold Label, or Giant 91 for short, is another one of our most famous whiskeys. If you want to enjoy a sincerely smooth whiskey, Giant 91 is the one for you.
Giant 91 features a distinct flavor with unique wood notes as well as hints of caramel and vanilla. It has a deep and rich amber color and a distinct aroma of allspice to create a rich, well-balanced bourbon whiskey. It is a double-gold-winning spirit from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and has a 92/100 rating from Forbes. Giant 91 is available in a 750 ml bottle.
We are proud to say that our Giant Texas Bourbon Whiskey products are made in Texas from grain to glass.
Hickory Hill Single-Barrel 12 whiskey is aged for at least 12 years in charred barrels made from American oak. It’s bottled at 90-proof and is a true small-batch liquor. Each bottle of Hickory Hill Single-Barrel 12 whiskey is unique and features a note designating the specific barrel from which it was poured.
This whiskey is a rich and spicy one with fruity notes mixed in to create a complex, balanced flavor profile. It tastes great served on its own or added to a cocktail.
Finally, it wouldn’t be a complete list of the Gulf Coast Distillers liquors you ought to without mention of BJ Hooker’s Vodka.
For those who aren’t interested in whiskey, BJ Hooker’s Vodka is a great alternative. This 40% ABV Texas-sized, handcrafted soft winter wheat vodka is one of Gulf Coast’s most popular clear spirits. We might be known here for our whiskey, but we make an incredible vodka, too. It’s one of the best in the world but is still sold at a fair price to everyone — from distributors and retailers to our customers.
BJ Hooker’s Vodka arrives in a unique, retro bottle complete with a cork. It’s a game-changer in the vodka world and even won a silver medal at the San Francisco World spirits Competition. BJ Hooker’s Vodka is available in 50 ml, 75 ml, 1 L, and 1.75 L bottles.
