Taking the world one sip at a time –  Tubi 60?

This mysterious bottle filled with a cloudy, amber-colored liquid, complete with a plain label that pictured a dove flying off with some sort of fruit. The combination of the simple home made bottle and unfiltered-looking spirit reminds us of homemade lemonade or your neigbour’s homemade liquor  you’d receive as an after-dinner gift.

Tubi 60 is an export of Israel.  Developed in Israel in a joint effort between master distillers, botanists and Israeli scientists.  Huge  in Tel Aviv bars, nightclubs, and is often employed as a starting-the-night-out-right shot. Its recipe has also been subject to frenzied speculation, and unsubstantiated rumors suggest some type of hallucinogenic or euphoria-causing herb.

It’s a neutral grain spirit distilled from corn and blended with a maceration of lemons, herbs, spices, tree and flower extract. The impressive lineup of roots, herbs and spices, which includes ginger, turmeric, mint, anise, saffron, cumin and ginseng.

NO ADDED SUGAR

Tube 60 is best served chilled but can be mixed with soda or tonic water as they do in Tel Aviv.  Give it a good shake and pour yourself a shot.  It had a lemony semi-sweetness taste close to fresh squeezed lemonade &  limoncello. The buzzing undercurrent  spices: ginger and turmeric in particular makes it very pleasant and healthy. It’s 80 proof  and can be used for all kinds of cocktails.

This Tel Aviv Spritz  is a  fantastic dilution is not syrupy quality,  it as a fresh, alcoholic lemonade with a multi-layered herbal kick. The ginger &  the herbal effect of the other spices, particularly the turmeric, makes one think you are drinking   some delicious, natural juice that just happened to be 40% ABV.

Tubi 60 is not like most things ton the bar. It’s a wonderful thing to get your hands on if you’re looking for an entirely different sort of drinking experience.

Two masters vision – Patron Tequila and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro

20247972_10154537494611249_7376979559548599106_oVery impressive and artistic Patrón x Guillermo del Toro is packaged in an upside down 750ml bottle with a small skull shaped bottle Patron’s aged orange liqueur  on top resembling a human body and skeleton. The expression is a blend of Patrón Tequilas aged for an average of more than five years in a combination of different new and used oak barrels.

It is described as having notes of “light honey, nuts and raisins, slight vanilla, and oak, with a long finish of agave and oak courtesy of the barrels”.

The packaging design was inspired by jimadores, the labourers who harvest and trim the blue agave that creates Tequila.

This partnership marks one of the first commercial collaborations del Toro has engaged outside of the entertainment industry.

“Tequila courses through the veins of my native land, Jalisco. It represents a communion between spirit and earth, steeped in time and tradition, and a source of pride that roots us and defines us both,” said del Toro. “Through the years, I have been offered many collaborations in designing and executing different products. I have never been tempted. This creation has been an adventure, and a privilege.”

ONLY 3000 BOTTLES MADE WORLD WIDE.
