It is widely believed that the Negroni was created and named for Count Camillo Negroni in the 1920s. The story goes that the drink was invented when he ordered an Americano with gin at Cafe Casoni in Florence, Italy.
Column and pot still rums from the US Virgin Islands are blended with a French West Indies Agricole distilled from the 1st pressing of the sugar cane. Polished with a 6 stage filtration through 3 materials for rich clarity of flavor.
10 Fresh Mint Leaves
½ Lime cut into 4 wedges
2 Tsp Demerara Sugar
1 Cup Ice Cubes
1 ½ oz Chicago Spirit Rum
½ cup Club Soda
Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass with carbonated water. Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.
All of our Bourbon and Whiskey is aged in barrels made from American White Oak from Minnesota. Our barrels have a medium toast head, a #3 char, and cross-cut grooved staves for a faster extraction and accelerated maturation. It accelerates aging because more surface area is exposed and a significant amount of end grain is available for better wood sourced sugar extraction.
Chicago Spirit Bourbon Whiskey is a 100% Corn blend. Distilled in Kansas from Midwestern corn, the distillate is filtered twelve times before its placed in the barrel to age. Our signature smooth spirit coupled with accelerated maturation produces a Bourbon that remarkably tastes much older than its age.
Chicago Spirit Whiskey is a blend of our Midwestern Corn Distillate and a subtle Wheat Distillate from Italy in a 75% Corn / 25% Wheat ratio. The result is a whiskey that is full-flavored and full bodied.
