Hit by the pandemic shortly after launching their specialty drinks agency, the team at Cocktail Concierge rolled up their sleeves and developed a product they’d been dreaming about for over a decade. The Drinksmith Collection, a select series of re-imagined classic cocktails, is the brainchild of JD Darnes, a Calgary-based master mixologist who once worked at the famous Savoy American Bar in London. These pre-mixed luxury cocktails, barrel-aged in American white oak, are a tailored blend of top-line spirits, select spices and fragrant botanicals. Their starting line-up includes a Smoked Walnut Old Fashioned, Chai Negroni, Paper Plane, Wild Rose Vesper, and others. Available at Vinestone Wine Co. in Cochrane and Vine Arts in Calgary.
