Gift-giving season—and all of its pressures—is fast approaching. Luckily, it coincides with a period of exciting new top-shelf spirits releases across all categories of the spirits world. We’ve handpicked a selection of bottles for every discerning palate on your list, from mezcal to Scotch, gin to amaro. Some are rare limited-editions, others are adventurously avant-garde, and at least one was made possible thanks to rock stars, but all are superb and new to market this season. Here’s to a holiday of top-notch toasting.
