Sloe gin, technically a liqueur and not a gin, is making a fast (excuse the pun) comeback.
All that glitters is not gold (or sapphire), so you had best know what you’re getting into.
Sherry has returned. It has reached a near-cult status with bartenders, and when you look at this recent revival, it makes complete sense. From the hands of bartenders flow the tastes of everyone else, and sherry is likely to cross your path sometime soon, if it hasn’t already.

These days, rye whisky is hot. And the coolest place to drink it is at High West Distillery & Saloon in Park City, Utah.
