The spy that will liberate your palate is here.
Hercules Mulligan was created with sophisticated free thinkers in mind. The complex character was built for inquisitive palates that wish to unlock secret aromas and decypher flavors of mystery. Our inspiration was the eponymous tailor-spy of the American Revolution who plied British officers with his gift of gab and fine Spirits into giving away sensitive information, some of which saved George Washington twice. Why is he inspiring? Because he stood for something, he was brave enough to go through with it, and because without him, there would probably be no independent America.
Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye encapsulates the clandestine and complex character with its carefully selected ingredients. American Rye Whiskeys were married with aged Caribbean Rum before they were joined by macerated fresh organic ginger from Brooklyn. To make the potion rich and audacious, we added a dash of bespoke bitters - an honest-to-God ingredient that adds the idea of a bittersweet life. The Spirit was bottled at 43% ABV and when the first 2,000 bottles sold out in a flash, we knew we had something powerful, flavorful and rare. Welcome to the revolution.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
2020 was… something.
But if this bizzaro year did anything right, it was this: it reacquainted us with the magic of building a formidable home bar. One that could withstand the trials of building out a sweatpants-based wardrobe, ordering too much take out and telling your co-worker Rob to turn off his Zoom mute button for the billionth time.
Out of the countless boozy options you had at your quarantined fingertips this year, five bottles rose to the top of the Flaviar ranks. This box celebrates these spirited soldiers, each one given a rousing seal of approval from our members and staff.
As we kick 2020’s arse firmly out the door, let’s raise our glasses to these Spirits’ boozy honor. After all, not all heroes wear capes — some prefer a bottle. Onto the winners!
