With the new year approaching in just a month, we’re expecting plenty of resolutions. As with any year, we’ll see odes to better lifestyles, including more exercise and healthier diets. From our perspective (and the majority of qualified health researchers’) the main factor in an improved diet is consuming products au naturale. This doesn’t just apply to eating, but also to drinking—why choose a rum filled with myriad chemicals you can’t pronounce when small-batch producers around the world are offering all-natural alternatives? In that vein, we’ve put together Poised By Nature, showcasing some of our favorite craft products from small-batch producers in and around the United States. The concoction pairs, among other ingredients listed below, a Vermont honey, a rum from Pittsburgh and an apple cider vinegar shrub from Virginia. We hope you enjoy staying healthy with this fully natural libation! (Also, if you’re curios to learn more about shrubs, we highly suggest reading Shrubs by @michaeldietsch.)
