Spirits Manager Shane Clifford has been behind the bar at Biga on the Banks for the past five years. It’s from that unique perspective that he’s able to share the unique story of Kinsman Rakia.

“I love the story, the origins, and I love telling visitors to San Antonio that it’s being distilled right here in downtown,” Clifford said.

For his 2018 Brandy Alexander, Clifford created a depth of flavor with the addition of maple syrup and a touch of apple bitters that help enhance the apricot notes in the Kinsman.
