I get my hair cut pretty regularly, and I’ll be going to get it cut soon again and I’m definitely going to suggest this option to my barber - because I just learned there are barbershops that are also bars! In this story - it all started for a couple when they were getting the groomsmen some grooming for their wedding and they enjoyed a beer, bagels, and bourbon while getting prepped. Who knows - my state probably has some ridiculous law that doesn’t allow sharp objects and alcohol to be in the same establishment, but there are places that do! For the fairly short list, check out


Say what? Whistlepig, Vermont’s blended whiskey and farm to bottle whiskey maker, has launched an alcohol-free aged rye (a non-whiskey). It’s called Devil’s Slide and it’s aged six years from 100% rye. According to Meghan Ireland, Whiskey Blender at WhistlePig “Most non-alc ‘spirits’ start with water as a base, then add components to mimic the character and taste of a spirit, whereas the Devil’s Slide starts with 6-year old PiggyBack 100% rye,”. In addition, Whistlepig has also released Devil’s Half Send, a non-boozy rye that adds locally-sourced hemp extract and Full Send (which I presume packs a bigger punch) is coming soon Find out more about them at https://www.insidehook.com/article/booze/whistlepig-devils-slide-aged-booze-free-rye-review

Speaking of whiskies. 2021 was a great year for collectors - not just those looking to collect, but those selling their collections. And people paid some crazy money to get their hands on exclusive bottles. The cheapest on this list of the top 20 came in at $21,000 for Michter’s 25-year-old Straight Rye. At the middle of the pack were two bottles of Macallan 72 year old for about $80,000 and the top bottle of booze? Macallan Fine & Rare 60-year-old, 1926 that sold for just under $1.5 million! I can’t hold onto a bottle longer than a few months, so I don’t know how y’all do it! I can’t think it’s a great way to invest though - seems as sketchy as bitcoin - but get the full run down and make your own decisions on it at https://www.whiskyadvocate.com/revealed-auction-houses-most-expensive-whiskies-of-2021/
