Sometimes, at this time of the year, you want a drink that's light and crisp. Something with a gentle character that's as soft and invigorating as a cool autumn breeze.

The Diamondback isn't one of those drinks. With the assertive double-barreled flavor of rye whiskey and applejack and the robust herbaceous richness of green Chartreuse, the Diamondback isn't a casual little tipple for a lazy afternoon. Bold, strong and deeply alluring, the Diamondback is a robust fortifier, the kind of drink well suited to capping the work week and getting the weekend started.
