A whiskey and a tequila that will raise your spirits

Spirits sales in the United States rose 1.3% in 2020 despite pandemic-induced lockdowns, according to the Distilled Spirits Council, an industry trade group. 

While the sale of $10-and-below bottles declined, sales in the $115-$170 range grew by 7.3%, and high-end bottles (priced $170 and above) grew by 12.7%—making it the fastest-growing segment of the $1 trillion global market.

While brown spirits continue to maintain their sales momentum, tequilas and mezcals represent new leadership in the super-premium category. Proud of our palette, Luckbox shares tasting notes on two top-shelf favorites.
