We love the tried and true bottles in our liquor cabinet and our go-to brands at bars. There will always be a place in our hearts and our livers for Johnnie Walker Black, Tanqueray, Ketel One, Maker's Mark, and so many other standybys. But we're living in a golden age of booze, where new distilleries are popping up with the frequency of Miley Cyrus twerking jokes. New and exciting spirits are being created, ignored old classics are being rediscovered, and history-minded distillers are going back and reviving long-extinct spirits. We're not saying you should give up your old favorites, but these ten spirits are worth your time and your money. You're not rocking the same jeans you wore in 2005, so why keep drinking the same old booze?
