Natural finishes and muted jewel tones create an everyday opulence in a warm and inviting atmosphere at CBR. The earthy roots of corn, barley, and rye weave into the quiet elegance of a well-balanced whiskey, overall evoking the feeling of a favorite softly-lit spot and the mellow glow of a craft cocktail.
