Slocum & Sons Adds Dashfire and Del Professore

By September 24, 2020Connecticut, Top News

Slocum & Sons added new brands for distribution statewide: Dashfire ready-to-drink canned cocktails and Del Professore Vermouth. Dashfire is a comprehensive bitters company based out of Minnetonka, Minnesota, founded by Lee and Dawn Egbert in 2012, now expanding its range with canned cocktails. Each Dashfire canned cocktail flavor, which comes in 6-pack/100-ml cans, offers high-proof, complex, ready-to-drink cocktails, featuring a twist on classic cocktails. Dashfire flavors include Bourbon Old Fashioned, Elderflower Martinez, Fig Cascara Manhattan, Lemon Lavender Martini, Pomegranate El Presidente and Chai White Russian. Vermouth Del Professore is one of few vermouths available made solely from wine and ingredients produced in-house, ensuring the intensity and authenticity of the aromas, as they oversee the entire process from grape and herbs to the finished product. Named after “Professor” Jerry Thomas, an iconic 19th-century bartender and cocktail pioneer, Vermouth Del Professore is produced by a collaboration between Federico Ricatto, Carlos Quaglia and the Jerry Thomas Speakeasy in Rome. A traditionally crafted product inspired by an ancient Piedmont recipe, the ingredients are the perfect aperitif according to Italian style. The Del Professore product line includes Classico, Rosso, Bitter, Aperitivo and Chinato Vermouth. The brands come to Slocum & Sons from Vision Wine & Spirits, LLC, a division of the Martignetti Companies.

Dashfire RTD cocktails include Bourbon Old Fashioned, Elderflower Martinez, Fig Cascara Manhattan, Lemon Lavender Martini, Pomegranate El Presidente and Chai White Russian.

The Del Professore product line includes Classico, Rosso, Bitter, Aperitivo and Chinato Vermouth.
