Support women with every sip when you stock your bar with female-founded booze brands. From whiskey to pisco to pre-batched cocktails, every bottle here is 750ml and will get you through any function.
New York Honey Whiskey from Catskill Provisions
The slight sweetness in this 80-proof rye whiskey comes from natural honey from New York’s Catskill Mountains, and Claire Marin isn’t only the distiller, she is also the beekeeper.
pür • likör Spice Blood Orange Liqueur from pür • spirits
This 50-proof blend from Kiki Braverman’s craft spirits line, made with blood orange, apricot, cinnamon, and clove, packs a lot of flavor in a sip. Add a splash to any brown liquor to really spice things up.
Using a recipe passed down from founder Yola Jiminez’s grandfather, this 90-proof spirit is still made on the Oaxaca farm he bought in 1971. Plus, Yola is dedicated to promoting the economic independence of local women.
Macchu Pisco from Macchu Pisco
This 80-proof pisco, a type of brandy distilled from fermented grape juice, is made of 100 percent quebranta grapes (the strongest Peruvian grape used for pisco). The ladies behind it (sisters Melanie and Lizzie Asher) claim that because of the all-natural distilling process, you get “all the highs without the lows.”
Rodham Rye from Republic Restoratives
You are going to want to sip this 90-proof whiskey blend, from Pia Carusone and Rachel Gardner’s D.C.-based distillery, slowly but proudly, because a portion of the proceeds from each bottle goes to recruiting and training pro-choice Democratic women to run for office.
Empower Cosmopolitan Martini from Empower Cocktails
Hard to believe, but this mix of sweet potato vodka, triple sec, white cranberry, and lime—from lawyer-turned–spirits maven Tiffany Hall—has a totally clean finish with zero burn. At 25-proof it is perfect for pre-gaming.
Ruby Red Cocktail from Austin Cocktail
Five-times-distilled vodka, grapefruit, mint, lime, and agave nectar make this 30-proof premix an easy go-to—from Texas-based sisters Jill Burns and Kelly Gasink—when you wanna have a classy cocktail without any fuss.
