It’s hard to believe it’s only June after many Maine cities and towns recently set records with temperatures in the 90s! That’s why this month we’re all about refreshing drinks to help cool you down. One of our favorite liquors for warmer months is gin, and with World Gin Day on June 10, this is the perfect time to swing by RSVP and pick up some gin and tonic water.
Father’s Day also falls in June, so you’ll want to make sure to stock your dad’s liquor cabinets with his favorite spirits. While he might appreciate some refreshing gin, we also recommend treating him to that classic Father’s Day liquor — bourbon. RSVP’s staff is ready to help you choose the perfect bottle, or you can always buy a gift card so dad can choose his favorite brand, or one he’s always been meaning to try.
If you want to be the hero of your next backyard party, you’ll want to snag our June beer of the month, Foundation Brewing Company’s Bocce Pils, available for $12.79 per four-pack all month long. Coming in at 4.5%, this Italian-style Pilsner is incredibly crispy, refreshingly light, and dry hopped to perfection — making it ideal for warm weather.
When we think about the perfect wines to enjoy during warm temperatures, Rosés immediately come to mind. This month we’re featuring Château Jouclary Cabardes Rosé, from an area right near Roussillon, France, and priced at only $11.99 for the entire month of June. This light, refreshing wine blend features ripe strawberry and melon fruit flavors and is 40% cabernet franc, 40% grenache, 10% syrah, and 10% cinsault.
As we mentioned earlier, World Gin Day is coming up on the 10th. To celebrate, we’re featuring Wild Bevy Distilling’s Forij Tulsi Rose Gin as our liquor of the month. The sweet herbaceous Tulsi Basil balances perfectly with the floral aromatics of the Maine beach rose in this distinctly light and tangy American gin. The rugosa roses are responsibly hand-foraged by the folks at Wild Bevy from islands and the coast of Maine. They’re then distilled together with 13 other vibrant citrus and garden flora to create a wildly crafted drinking experience. At only $38.99 you’ll want to pick up a bottle for yourself or the host of your next summer soirée.
