I am thrilled to announce that I am teaming up with my neighbor, Parcel, for a special Valentine's Day giveaway. Parcel curates the most thoughtful gift boxes. I love the Local Best and the Breakfast in Bed. You can even work with them to create your own box! I love that their boxes are filled with my favorite Portland-made products such as Woodblock Chocolate, Jacobsen Salt, Stumptown Coffee, Quin Candy, and Marshall’s Haute Sauce.
And… Just in time for Valentine’s Day, one lucky cider & rye reader will receive a Parcel Cocktail Box! This box is inspired by The Bar Book by local Clyde Common and Pepe le Moko bar manager Jeffrey Morgenthaler. This handsome box includes The Bar Book as well as some of Mr. Morgenthaler's favorite bar tools, including: a teardrop bar spoon, a weighted shaking tin, a premium julep strainer, and a Japanese style jigger. This box also includes fresh herbs and citrus. You will be ready to shake up your favorite cocktails. Additionally, this gift comes in a signature keepsake box, handcrafted in Oregon with Forest Stewardship Council certified wood.
I love that this box was inspired by one of my favorite new cocktail books. This book is the product of years of research and tinkering. It is the perfect gift for both the beginner and advanced bartender. Mr. Morgenthaler is a bartender’s bartender. He likes to break things down, cut through the BS, and make a damn fine drink.
Be sure to follow Parcel for more wonderful gift box magic:
