Whiskey remains the universal winter friendly spirit with its deep dark warming essence and capacity to truly sip in a balanced manner neat, on the rocks or in mixed drinks. Escape from the dark, dank winter blues and opt for a user friendly winter. Scoff at the icy frost as it whitens the outdoors while sipping fireside indoors.
