Simsbury Event Features Quiver Spiced Honey Spirit

By July 31, 2023Connecticut, Top News

Connecticut-based Quiver Spiced Honey Spirit and Fruitful Mixology Liqueurs, both distributed by Brescome Barton, were the showcased brands for a cocktail competition hosted at Roux Cajun Eatery in Simsbury on June 20. Three local bartenders created their best cocktails for judges in two rounds using Quiver Spiced Honey Spirit. Special guest Matthew James, Radio 104.1FM, hosted the competition and judged cocktail entries, along with Quiver Spiced Honey Spirit’s Tomas Nenortas, Co-founder, and Dan Rice, Director of Marketing and Design. The winners were Andrew Mendonca, Michelle Bee and Jesse Bellemare, GameCraft Arcade & Bar. Quiver Spiced Honey Spirit is a Krupnikas, a spirit that has been popular in Lithuania for centuries. The brand was founded by brothers Ed and Tomas Nenortas, whose recipe is rooted in their Lithuanian-American family history. Quiver Spiced Honey Spirit offers a complex flavor and is smooth enough to sip on its own, offering sweet honey flavors that build up to a warm and spicy finish. The Connecticut-founded brand is made at Central CT Distillers in East Hartford.
