•Philadelphia’s Art in the Age says it will cease producing the Root, Snap, Sage and Rhubarb liqueurs in order to focus on new small-batch spirits. While the liqueur line, which has been sold by William Grant & Sons, will be discontinued, founder Steven Grasse will continue to produce new Art in the Age products—such as the Art in the Age Garden Infusions experimental spirits line—through his Tamworth Distilling venture. The Art in the Age brick-and-mortar shop in Philadelphia will continue its ongoing shift from gallery and boutique to “a cocktail-focused home bar supply and tasting room, which will be able to sell spirits direct to consumers,” the company said.
