A Year in Review: 10 Great Drink Moments From 2012

To all of my fellow drink lovers out there, Happy New Year! I hope that your holiday season was filled with great drinks and much cheer.

It has been a fun year here at Drink Insider, and I’d like to say a big thanks to all of you who have taken an interest in what I’ve been covering. There have been so many great drinks this year, and I for one can’t wait to see what’s on tap in 2013. Like for instance, the Evan Williams Vintage 2003 release which should be coming out any day now.

As a quick look back to the year that we just said goodbye to, I thought I’d dig through some of my favorite pictures and highlights of 2012 and re-post them here. Let me know what you think. And, more importantly, let me know what you’re most looking forward to in 2013!
