A rare blend made with whisky from closed distilleries, a terroir-inspired vodka range and a liqueur containing 125-year-old Cognac are included in the fourth instalment of our most innovative new spirits list. As we draw ever closer to the final 10 in our innovative spirits list, our fourth instalment showcases a number of brands that are intending to shake up their respective categories, including a Bourbon made from six different grains and regional grape-based vermouths.
The ‘world’s first’ Tequilas aged in Speyside whisky casks, a Scottish absinthe and a winemaker’s move into flavoured vodka: it’s the third instalment of our most innovative spirits launches list. Last year, the team at Teeling experimented with fortified wine in its new Irish whiskey range, while Pernod Ricard blended the boundaries of “fine cuisine and mixology” with the launch of a caviar-infused vodka.
Spain’s Zamora Company has moved into the gin category with the purchase of a majority stake in Martin Miller’s Gin for an undisclosed sum. Launched by The Reformed Spirits Company in 2004, Martin Miller’s Gin is distilled in pot stills in England and shipped to Iceland, where it is mixed with Icelandic spring water. The gin joins the Spanish producer’s drinks portfolio, which includes Licor 43, Villa Massa limoncello, El Afilador liqueurs and sangria brand Lolea.
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".
