Inspired by the best liquor industry items we've come across this year, here's an unconventional boozy guide. From a gin-themed boombox to a bike made of old whisky casks, there's a mix of things you can absolutely buy, as well as some stuff that requires digging around for—or maybe even bartering. Many brands produce items that are solely promotional, and that doesn’t make them impossible to find but it certainly increases the difficulty.

Ask any Games of Thrones fan about the show’s real-life locales, and they will likely mention Dubrovnik, Croatia, which is the stand-in for the bloody capital of Westeros, King’s Landing. But there’s more to Croatia than just passing references to the Lannisters.
First comes cocktails, then comes marriage. Then comes a bartender with a baby carriage. The contemporary craft cocktail movement as we know it is around 17 years old, dating to the opening of seminal bars like Death & Co, Employees Only, Milk & Honey, Pegu Club and PDT. But as the scene has matured, so too have its pioneers, many of whom are now married with families and grappling with how to balance parenthood in an industry that’s not always compatible with a healthy home life.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
