Are you sick of going to craft cocktail bars and paying 14 USD for barrel aged Negronis? Me too. If I'm dropping 1.4 Hamiltons (more like .85 Tubmans with tip) on a drink, then I want a struggling actor in a vest and bowtie to mix it right in front of me. I like to watch. I hope you read that last sentence in the creepiest voice possible. The problem is that I do enjoy the flavor of a barrel aged cocktail, putting me in what guys who sit on porches in rocking chairs with hound dogs at their feet might call "a pickle". Enter Barrel Aged in a Bottle and their charred American oak infusion spirals. Pop one of these bad boys into a 750ML bottle of your favorite cocktail (or unaged spirits) and, in two weeks, you've got your very own batch of barrel aged goodness, without any of the muss or fuss of flavoring and maintaining an actual barrel. I mean, I might be able take a little fuss, but the muss? Never. Never the muss. This is an official TTAG Blog endorsement, peeps. I bought some of these things and they are good. So far, I've aged three cocktails using the infusion spirals and they were all superbly delicious. Pro-tip: start with a batch of Vieux Carrés. It's a classic cocktail and the sweet vermouth really lends itself to aging. Plus, it's 100% muss-free. I guarantee it. Not in a legally-binding way though. I've been told to stop doing that -RB
