The apple brandy is deceptively sweet but not cloying, and their Wheeler's Gin contains juniper, cucumber, and a rare cactus flower. Try a flight of all five liquors or let the staff whip up a cocktail like a Santa Fe Sidecar or a Whiskeyrita.
For a true blast from the past, check out KGB Spirits outside of Taos. This hyper-local company has been racking up awards around the world, but the brand remains small and true to its roots. So don't expect a generic Bacardi-type rum from them: instead, it's all about a homemade absinthe, a potato vodka, and their true hallmark, a whiskey called Taos Lightning.
Taos Lightning used to be an old name for any booze distilled west of the Mississippi River, and you'll sometimes hear it mentioned in old Westerns and on the TV show "Deadwood." KGB bought back the copyright on the name and is now making some of the smoothest ryes, bourbons, and whiskies you'll ever taste. To try them out, check out their website for the local stores and restaurants that carry the product. The relative scarcity of the products (hard to find outside of New Mexico) makes them a great gift for friends and party hosts.
