Soap Dis­tillery, a line of cock­tail-in­spired bath and body prod­ucts, com­bines the plea­sures of night­caps and nightly soaks. We’re talk­ing su­gar scrubs in scents like limon­cello and bour­bon and bar soaps in fla­vors like mint mo­jito and Ne­groni. “I love us­ing nat­u­ral soaps but be­came bored see­ing the same scents over and over,” says founder Danielle Martin. “As I was drink­ing a cock­tail, I thought, What if I make soaps that smell like cock­tails? Soap Dis­tillery was born shortly af­ter.” De­spite the im­i­ta­tion, the only soaps with ac­tual al­co­hol in them are the beer va­ri­eties, “be­cause it makes the soap feel amaz­ing,” says Martin. “Liquor doesn’t of­fer much ben­e­fit for the skin, and it’s an ex­pen­sive ad­di­tive to just wash off of you.” In­stead, most of the boozy scents come from a blend of es­sen­tial oils that mimic the aroma of the liq­uid in­spi­ra­tion. A gin bar, for ex­am­ple, has notes of ju­niper berry and lemon, and a bour­bon can­dle com­bines smoked oak with a hint of vanilla. With prices start­ing at $7, we def­i­nitely just found our new fa­vorite ver­sion of barhop­ping. soapdis­tillery.com — CHRISTINA IZZO
