It’s nearly impossible to get bored when it comes to booze. Every month, at least one brand spankin’ new bottle hits the market, and 2017 has seen its fair share of launches from whiskey to vodka to cachaça. The past couple of months have been especially prolific as some new spirits launched during July’s Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, and the next few months will be just as plentiful. Check out the seven best and newest spirits to try before the season is over—your home bar will thank you.
Novo Fogo Colibri, $35
Colibri means “hummingbird” in Portuguese; it’s a fitting name for this new, limited edition run of cachaça. Novo Fogo Colibri will disappear in the blink of an eye, thanks to a small run of only 2,400 bottles, set to hit the shelves on October 1. Aged by moving the spirit back and forth from repurposed American oak to Brazilian amburana barrels, the amber-hued cachaça is rich, nutty and full of spice. Be sure to get your hands on a bottle before it flits away forever.
