Drink Me Magazine
In the release of this “Colonial Life” issue, we acknowledge that Colonialism in all of its forms has had grave consequences and negative impacts across the globe. It has taken many forms – some with more unspeakable abominations than others. We’re not raising our glasses to colonialism as we know it nor glorifying a world trend that we hope in all sincerity is waning. Rather, we’re taking on colonial life as a moment in history and a pivotal time in the development of some of today’s most prominent drinking trends. With a focus on the American experience, this issue is celebrating the spirits, wine and beer that have been the liquid foundation of the country.
As a nation, we have a knack at taking existing customs and styles and exacting them as our own. Almost every article and alcohol discussed in the issue was born and gained popularity from a necessity of the landscape – liquids that would last the long voyage from their country of origin, beer and whisky that was developed with available grains, and drinks that were tailored to the American palate. Now those trends are world leaders in their own right, and that’s something to cheers to.
We’re distilling the American spirit and we hope you’ll raise your bottle to the grand ‘ole booze in the glass.
