Tenth Ward’s 2020 Holiday Shopping Guide
Written by Amanda Boroughs, Marketing & Events Manager, Tenth Ward Distilling Company
Another year, another holiday season. I don’t know about you, but every year I kick myself in the butt because I’ve waited until the last possible second to go holiday shopping. And to my dismay, the best gifts are usually picked through or sold out. This year I’m determined to stock up on the best gifts early – well before the holidays – so I can cross that dreaded task off my list. I’ll be stocking up on all things Tenth Ward this year. Below is a list of our favorite Tenth Ward items and experiences. Just in case you need a little motivation and inspiration.
Ready-to-Drink Canned Cocktails
We released our first ready-to-drink canned craft cocktail – the Corpse Reviver No. 10 – on Saturday, October 24. They’ve been a tremendous hit and are practically flying off our shelves. These tasty canned cocktails are just $16 a 4-pack, making them a no-brainer for your next holiday gathering. Simply crack the can, grab your favorite drinking glass, pour over ice, and add your favorite garnish. No bartending skills required. Stay tuned for our next canned cocktail release in November. Hint hint… it’s smoky.
Stock the Bar Cart
Got a friend looking to spruce up their bar cart? In addition to our spirits, we also offer cocktail mixers and accompaniments. Get your buddy a bottle of craft grenadine by Pratt Standard Cocktail Company or a variety pack of specialty bitters by Modern Bar Cart. You can’t expect to make extraordinary cocktails with ordinary ingredients, so give the gift of mixers that stand out above the rest.
Raise a Toast With Craft Cocktail Kits
Want to keep it simple? Just bring the libations! Cocktails made with Tenth Ward are a great way to make any holiday spirited. Make sure to show up to the party with one of our cocktail kits. Each kit comes with everything you need to make a specialty craft cocktail at home. My personal favorite? The Autumn Mule Kit which comes with a 375 ml bottle of Autumn Liqueur, one bottle of ginger beer, Modern Bar Cart orange bitters and a Tenth Ward branded rocks glass.
The Coolest Merch Around
Would your crazy uncle like a set of glassware from his favorite distillery? Or would that booze-lovin’ aunt like a Whiskey Woman sweatshirt? We’ve got it all: T-shirts, hats, beanies, hoodies and tanks. Merch can be purchased at the Cocktail Lab only. But hurry, popular sizes go quick.
Are you… One of those? A gift card giver? Have no shame in your gift card game. We think it’s the best way to give the gift of spirits while saying, “Hey, I have no earthly idea what to give you but here’s free money. Have fun.” Gift cards can be purchased at the Cocktail Lab or online.
Tours in the Barrel Room
Socially distanced and health-conscious tours are held in the Barrel Room every Saturday at 3 pm and it’s the ultimate whiskey experience. We teach you how to properly nose and taste spirits, sample our way through our spirits menu, and learn about the history of spirits and of Tenth Ward. After your tour, post up at the bar and enjoy some cocktails from our expert mixologists.
Bottle Club Membership
Give the ultimate whiskey subscription: A membership to Tenth Ward’s Bottle Club. Bottle Club members enjoy a quarterly bottle release that’s exclusive to them. That means the regular public has no access to these special releases… ever! Club members also get discounts at the Cocktail Lab, free entry to quarterly Bottle Club events, and more.

Bottles Work Too!
And when in doubt? There’s nothing wrong with showing up for the holidays with a bottle (or two) in hand. We offer a variety of year-round, seasonal and limited bottles and bottle bundles in 375 mL and 750 mL sizes. Check out our online store of all our available bottles for purchase.
