For our August box, we wanted to capture the magic of the golden hour - that feeling of being bathed in warm light as the summer heat begins to fade into a cool evening breeze. And what better way to enjoy that magic than with the perfect zero-proof cocktail in hand? Our box this month features four unique recipes, all highlighting the Wilderton Lustre botanical spirit.
Founded in Oregon by liquor industry experts Brad Whiting and Seth O’Malley, Wilderton was created with a clear mission. Their goal was to create a spirit focused on flavor, and unlimited by the constraints of typical alcoholic beverages. This philosophy gave them the freedom to experiment with combinations of botanicals as well as distillation methods, resulting in a fresh, distinctive spirit unlike anything else on the market.
Lustre, the Wilderton flavor featured in this month’s box, is said to be “inspired by picnics in the fertile valleys of the Pacific Northwest and dreams of sun-drenched Mediterranean coastlines.” It combines notes of bitter orange, tarragon, and lavender for a finish that is equal parts floral and citrusy. While we love it mixed into a zero-proof cocktail, it’s also flavorful enough to be enjoyed on its own over ice. Use code RAISETHEBAR20 for 20% off purchases from Wilderton until Oct 31, 2022!
