Square One

Local Distillers Shine at Indy Spirits Expo

With so many pioneers in small, craft distilling, SF is a natural fit for Thursday's Indy Spirits Expo. The lineup of liquors is long and varied, ranging from Boca Loca cachaca to Macchu Pisco-- and those are just the South American-style spirits. Handcrafted absinthe, plum-wine liqueur, Chicago-made aquavit, and plenty of good old gin, vodka, and whiskey will also abound. If you want to say hello to the hometown crowd, look for Alameda's Hangar One (we love their blueberry and chipotle vodkas), Petaluma's 3D Spirits (low-proof, tasty rums), and Novato's Square One (cucumber and botanical vodkas).

Nothing Puritanical About Square One Botanical: Pleasure In A Clear Glass Bottle

After enjoying it regularly during the spell of great sunny weather we've been having (at least over here in the Dogpatch), I'm ready to come out and say it--the just-realeased Square One Botanical is bold, original, wonderfully delicious, and absolutely deserving of your attention.

A Cucumber Vodka Cocktail: The Watermelon Refresher

Cucumber, perhaps my favorite vegetable, is the supreme food for summer. Light, crisp, a mixture of sweet and bitter, cucumber is just made for eating … and drinking. As my colleague Sara Deseran pointed out last week in her Bits and Bites posting, Square One, the locally masterminded organic vodka company, has just released its cucumber-flavored vodka, and it's a winner. Normally, I don't get particularly excited about flavored vodkas, but this one is novel and very well made.
