The Great Booze Swag Giveaway!

Posted by on Mon, Feb 20, 2012 at 1:34 PM

I went to a cocktail conference last week in Vancouver, B.C., and all I got was this lousy column and this mountain of swag*:

So. Much. Swag.
  • So. Much. Swag.

Look at it all! Some things that are included:

· Rubber Clamato bar mat!
· Havana Club hat!
· Bacardi ice bucket with leatheresque trim, with tongs also with leatheresque trim!
· Unbranded hockey-stick swizzle stick!
· Fireball flask, 3 oz.!
· Disaronno citrus squeezer (made of metal, possibly useful)!
· Skky Vodka unisex microfleece neck gaitor!
· Jagermeister wristband!
· Sailor Jerry dogtag necklace/bottle opener (always be prepared)!
· Unbranded pink compact with double-mirror insides and rhinestone heart detail (ditto?)!
· Vermont Gold shot glass
· Packet of Demitri's Ultimate Caesar ("JUST ADD CLAMATO")!

Also, there's a fancyish Disaronno notebook, a Domaine de Canton cocktail recipe book (hardback!), and two t-shirts reading "I [CAMPARI in a heart shape] Negroni" on the front and "Bitter Bash / Tales of the Cocktail on Tour Vancouver 2012" on the back (men's/women's medium, 100% cotton, red). Also, a copy of the Valentine's day Globe and Mail (unspindled).**

DO YOU WANT ANY OF THIS? Claim your swag in comments—one item per person please, first come/first served, 21+ only, and you MUST be able to pick it up on Capitol Hill during business hours this week.

*Also I met some nice new people (and fell down a flight of stairs), and I saw a dog with a cask around its neck and a small Seattle contingent.

**I'm keeping the January/February issue of Imbibe, two kinds of shrub (that's fruit vinegar, the latest addition to schmancy-old-fashionedy-cocktail-making) from Sage and Sea Farms in Portland, and a very cute miniature bottle of Angostura bitters. And, need it be said, the airplane bottles of liquor are already gone. First come, first served!

hockey stick swizzle stick please!
Drinking in Vancouver has gone downhill for me since Delilah's disappeared. Left with cocktails at the Sylvia Hotel.

None of the swag for me, but Artusi is doing some incredible things with vinegars and oil, cocktail wise.

About the one item per person limit: will you let me know please if the Globe and Mail isn't claimed? I used to subscribe to it and have some uses for it.

Looks like I beat you by a hair, @21.

Bethany, if it's unisex, is it a biggish medium or a smallish one?

Or is one of the shirts a men's medium and the other a women's medium?

I'll take the bottle of 18-year-old Macallan, thanks.

WHAT!?!?

No one has called the pink compact yet!?

I call that shit!

I didn't think about that, @22 - figured they were unisex. If they're different, can I get the men's?

Dibs on whatever's left that you think I might like.

@25, if the shirts are gendered, then you totally called it before me. Fair is fair.

And while I'd enjoy having the second one, I'll probably let @21 have it if she has her heart set on it.
