The 86 Co spirits were developed with bartenders in mind.  Created by Dushan Zaric from NYC bar Employees Only (ranked world’s best bar 2011) and Simon Ford, stalwart behind Tales of The Cocktail, the bottles are ergonomically designed for easy handling, batching and measurement.  Each of the four spirits is of the utmost quality from the best distilleries in the world and are now first-pouring in the best bars across the USA.  

The range is comprised of four spirits:

  • Fords Gin from London, 45% alc / vol.  Made by Master Distiller Charles Maxwell.  Winner New Brand of the Year at Tales of the Cocktail 2013.
  • Aylesbury Duck vodka from Canada, 40% alc / vol.   A clean vodka with a spicy, grainy and chocolately character made from white winter wheat in the western Rockies.
  • Tequila Cabeza from the Jalisco highlands, 43% alc / vol.  Made from 100% estate owned agave from the Los Altos region in Arandas.  The agaves are grown without pesticides by the Vivanco family, who have been cultivating agaves on their 800-hectare mountainside land for over 100 years.
  • Cana Brava rum from Panama, 43% alc / vol.  A 3 year-old rum made from local sugar cane grown in the volcanic soil of the Herrera region of Panama.  Continuously distilled in a 1922 copper and brass still under the watchful eye of Master Distiller Francisco “Don Pancho” J. Fernandez who was Cuban Minister of Rum for 35 years.
