Don Fulano 20 Anniversary Edition Anejo Tequila
Enrique Fonseca and Sergio Mendoza, the fourth- and fifth-generation agave farmers and tequila makers behind Don Fulano, are celebrating the brand’s 20th anniversary with a limited-edition añejo produced at La Tequileña distillery. The recipe marries three different batches of añejo and extra añejo tequilas that are naturally fermented and distilled in copper from 100 percent Blue Weber agave, proprietary yeast, and volcanic spring water, then matured in Oloroso and Amontillado sherry casks.
RumChata Pumpkin Spice Cream Liqueur
Just as RumChata’s limón, peppermint bark, and coconut cream offerings are clamored for in different seasons, its limited-edition pumpkin spice satiates fall cravings. The liqueur, which melds Caribbean rum with Wisconsin cream and Mexican spice, can be enjoyed on the rocks or to enliven warm coffee concoctions.
Brinley Gold Shipwreck Coconut Rum
Shipwreck Rum, a product of St. Kitts in the Caribbean, was founded in 2002 by the entrepreneurial father and son team of Bob and Zach Brinley. To convey this feel-good family aspect, photos of the Brinleys now adorn the back label of each bottle as part of the flavored rum brand’s upgraded packaging scheme, which also emphasizes the use of such fresh ingredients as Madagascar vanilla beans and Brazilian mangos. Neckers emblazoned with cocktail recipes and QR codes that invite website visits were designed to engage with consumers as well.
Pierre Ferrand Limited Edition Dry Curacao Yuzu Late Harvest
The prolific Alexandre Gabriel, the owner of Maison Ferrand, has dreamed up yet another innovation with spirits and cocktail historian David Wondrich. A follow-up to their Ferrand Dry Curaçao, the limited-edition Ferrand Dry Curaçao Yuzu Late Harvest captures the essence of zesty yuzu sourced from L’Agrumiste, a biodiverse orchard in Morocco, well after the citrus has ripened to yield concentrated aromas. The fruit is then fused with a rich base of brandy and Ferrand Cognac for an herbal, sweet pastry finish.
Alma Del Jaguar Reposado Tequila
A collaboration between master distiller Sergio Cruz, tequila expert Adam Fodor, and the Vivancos, a fifth-generation tequila family, Alma del Jaguar is a sustainably produced tequila that was created to help conserve northern Mexico’s endangered wild jaguar population. For the reposado, the brand’s second release, the blanco distilled from 100 percent Blue Weber agave was aged in Tennessee and Kentucky bourbon barrels for two months before resting in Chardonnay casks from a Santa Barbara winery for an additional month.
Reál Sangria Red | Reál Sangria White

Empress 1908 Elderflower Rose Gin
Canada’s Victoria Distillers, known for its butterfly pea-hued Empress 1908 Gin, has now introduced a delicate elderflower-rose iteration of the spirit. This equally vivid ruby-colored sibling blends its namesake botanicals with classic juniper berries, orange peel, and black carrot, giving way to layers of citrus, spice, and florals that lend itself well to invigorated Negronis, French 75s, and gin and tonics.
