Tell me about your single malt scotch collection.
It's not stuff you would normally see. We have 25 different scotches to cleanse every palette. Sheep Dip is a blend of 16 single malts, Dalmore is my favorite. We also have Auchentoshan, Asyla, Ardbeg and we have Mackinlay Old Discovery Highland Malt; this is one of the oldest. The flavor lingers on forever and it dances on your tongue.
What's the most interesting thing you're doing with hard cider?
Cider is becoming a lot more popular. We have Crispin cider and Crispin bourbon cask aged cider. We're adding alcohol to cider. The Cabin is one of those drinks. It has Canadian maple, rye whiskey, Mellow Corn, cranberry juice and dried cranberries.
What cocktail should be more popular than it is?
The Orange Ginger highball, it's a highball so it's not trendy, but the portions are rights and we shake it. It's a modern twist on a classic cocktail. The Mellow Purple should be more popular. This is a really good drink; it's made with corn whiskey, Grand Marnier and Concord grape juice.
Tell me about your garnishes?
Garnishes are a part of a drink. I'm passionate about creating cocktails, and the garnishes we have go perfectly with the cocktails we serve.
