Personal, elegant, functional and timelessly modern. Reclamation Etchworks‘ spirit decanters are the perfect groomsmen gifts.
Available in graceful, artisan-etched bottles for your bridal party’s favorite spirits — from vodka to bourbon or scotch and tequila — each bottle can be custom engraved.
Made from upcycled bottles, this is a sustainable gift that you can feel good about giving. Company founders Timothy Daw and Ethan Terry, veterans of the San Francisco cocktail culture with backgrounds in industrial design and mixology, collect bottles from the finest Bay Area bars and restaurants then laser etch them with a period-inspired Art Deco style. The effect is a truly unique and stylish gift inspired by the current cocktail craze with a nod to the craft’s origins.
Reclamation Etchworks decanters are available individually or in two sets:
The Constance Foundation Set: this set of four identically sized bottles features the foundation spirits of many classic cocktails: Bourbon, Genìevre (Gin), Agave and Rhum. $99 Add personalization $129
Individual Constance Style Decanter: a single bottle offering in the style of the Constance set, this elegant glass decanter is the perfect vessel to display and enjoy your favorite spirit. More choices are available including Rye, Scotch, Whiskey, Cognac, Pisco, and Vodka. $39. Add personalization: $49
The Variance Set: this flagship set includes the four basic building blocks for many classic cocktails, each in its own uniquely sized decanter: Bourbon, Genìevre, Agave & Rhum. $199

We are sad to hear that the Thatched Cottage in Centerport is closing in October. Not a surprise, since they had filed for bankruptcy protection. Sometimes that helps businesses get back on their feet. Not in this case, however, and we know many couples who had booked their wedding there are now scrambling to find a new venue. As Newsday reported in January, back then eight couples cancelled their wedding reception there, just in case.
Which begs the question, did you book your wedding there and are now stuck trying to find a new space? Let us know here.
