Val’s Putnam Wines in Greenwich hosted an in-store tasting of Kas Spirits on June 10. Sheila Cordelli, a brand ambassador for Kas Spirits, provided tastes for guests through a cocktail sample called “Bee Palmer,” which includes Kas Krupnikas with unsweetened ice tea and lemon juice poured over ice. The New York-based Kas Spirits is distributed in Connecticut via Highland Imports. Kas Spirits makes its small-batch, handcrafted Krupnikas from locally-sourced New York honey, along with a mixture of 10 spices including star anise, cinnamon and cardamom. Wine Enthusiast rated Kas Krupnikas 92 points and it earned a spot on the “Top 100 Spirits of 2015” list.
