Flaviar is a membership club for spirits enthusiasts that helps members propel their palates to the next level, find new favorites through comparative tasting, and grant access to rare and unique spirits. The Grilled & Distilled Tasting Box is a new offering this year, building on the ongoing success of Flaviar’s themed tasting boxes and holiday advent calendar. This box is designed to deliver a true Flaviar experience as the ultimate Father’s Day gift that can be enjoyed all summer long with unique cocktail recipes and barbecue tips & tricks available on Flaviar.com
“Flaviar is your wingman. We help people navigate the spirits world with curated selections while helping improve their knowledge in a fun and sharable way,” shared Flaviar Co-Founder Grisa Soba. “We always seek to one-up the experience and make our members feel like kings and queens, and the Grilled & Distilled Tasting Box is just another great new example of that, one we know will make an amazing gift for Dad, or for anyone who loves to sip on some delicious whiskey and indulge in juicy barbecue. Having Tuffy Stone, the big kahuna of meat and smoke, involved, makes this offering truly exceptional — you just know it’s going to be next-level amazing.”
A native Virginian, Tuffy Stone is a six-time World Barbecue Champion pitmaster, a Barbecue Hall of Fame inductee, an author (Cool Smoke -The Art of Great Barbecue), a former Marine, a French-trained chef, and an occasional reality television star as a judge and co-host of Destination America’s show BBQ Pitmasters. Dubbed “The Professor,” Tuffy’s legendary precision and obsession with the science of smoke have made him one of the most influential people in barbecue.
“I’m biased, but Barbecue is amazing all summer long, all yearlong in fact,” shared Stone. “Add quality whiskey to that and you have the recipe for amazing entertaining. Working with Flaviar on this has been a pleasure and I can’t wait to hear the reaction from Barbecue fans and whiskey aficionados now that we’ve put these together in the Grilled & Distilled Tasting Box, the gift Dad will really love this year.”
