El Cardenal

Our friend Craig Rudewicz of Crude Bitters in Raleigh is a talented mixologist in addition to being a bitters alchemist.  He provides loads of fun cocktails using our spirits and wines, and chose to create a cocktail with our Flying Pepper when he was featured in Walter Magazine.  Give El Cardenal a shot – it doesn’t get more invigorating than this one!
