For many cocktail spirits companies it is the most important public showcase of the finest liquors from around the world. Premium vodkas, rums, tequilas, whiskeys— you name the brand— and it will be on display at the San Diego Spirits Festival this year from August 23rd thru the 24th. This seemingly relaxed festival, right on the water at the Port Pavilion, and representing all things beautiful and decadent about the cocktail industry; is also home to an International Spirits Competition which has been hailed by more than one publication as the toughest competition anywhere on the planet. Yes, on this weekend professional hospitality giants, wizards of mixology (that’s a good bartender to us in the sipping public), and culinary food masters will swoop into San Diego for a few days of pontification and merriment over something as American as apple pie, the craft cocktail.
Will Natalie Susi Be There? Check.
Who is representing the San Diego community? San Diegan, Forbes Online’s entrepeneaur to watch, and Bare Organic Mixers founder Natalie Susi will be touring the San Diego Spirits Festival all weekend. She’ll be there to meet with fellow ‘skinny’ spirits gals and to celebrate the expansion of her product to a larger national market. If you can catch Natalie at the festival ask her to tell you the full story of how she developed these amazing USDA Organic cocktail mixers and the story of how she went from being an English teacher to one of the most proactive female business builders in the United States. As she has often said, like a cocktail it takes the right mix of people working together.
The Skinny Bare & The Russian Bear
Working together with Natalie using her Bare Organic Mixers will be 40° Degrees Russian Vodka. This smooth authentic brand and Natalie’s simple low calorie fruit juice mixers will be showcased in the hometown of the brand all weekend long. The spirit mixtures 40° Degrees will being poured throughout the day will include the exceptionally clear and cool Russian vodka mixed into exotic skinny cocktails bursting with flavors of lemon, and pomegranate. If you haven’t heard of 40 Degrees vodka yet do a little research and you’ll find it a suggested on vodka.findthebest.com as a smooth vodka of rare quality.
This cool vodka is a perfect complement to the sprite-sweet Bare Organic mixers and the San Diego Spirits Festival is the perfect compliment to the emergence of two great brands. Anyone tasting at the show with a palette for quality craft cocktails will notice the difference between low-budget high calorie mixers vs. the purity of Bare Organic Mixers. Why? Because those little receptors aren’t fooled, natural quality in a cocktail is something with a unique taste, and when the natural flavor is paired cold with 40 Degrees the result is, as Natalie put it plainly, amazeballs.
