Southern Glazer’s launched their inaugural Craft Spirits Expo last month and it was special, with crafted spirits taking center stage featuring entrepreneurs, innovators and visionaries in the field of spirits ranging from cognacs to tequilas. The tastings spanned from the elegance of Camus VSOP Borderies (Double Gold SF World Spirits Competition 2019), to the refreshing 21 Seeds Tequila with exotic flavor profiles like Grapefruit Hibiscus and Cucumber Jalapeno, to the complex and downright exciting Ron Cartavio XO (Best Rum SF World Spirits Competition 2017).
