Craft cocktail enthusiasts and food connoisseurs alike are turning their attention to a local Tampa-based company that’s changing the way people savor their favorite beverages and foods. Higher Order Drink Smokers, a Tampa-born enterprise, specializes in crafting handmade, hardwood cocktail smokers that bring a smoky twist to cocktails, cheeses, and meats.

The concept is simple but revolutionary. Each Higher Order Drink Smoker is designed to rest elegantly atop a cocktail or a charcuterie tray. Once in place, it’s filled with wood chips, which are ignited, infusing a delightful smoky flavor into the drink or the culinary delights below. The result? An elevated tasting experience that adds depth and character to your favorite libations and dishes.

The expertise behind Higher Order Drink Smokers is deeply rooted in an extensive background in architecture and woodworking, allowing for a profound understanding of materials and construction that translates into superior craftsmanship. Cole Miles, with his architectural acumen, leads a team where the precision of design and the warmth of natural wood converge to create something truly exceptional. The architectural principles of form, function, and sustainability are reflected in every unique piece, validating the company’s expertise with each smoker that passes from their hands to yours. This fusion of architectural knowledge and woodworking skills ensures that when you invest in a Higher Order smoker, you are acquiring a piece that is not only locally crafted but also architecturally inspired—a true masterpiece from Tampa’s finest.

Owner Cole Miles, a Tampa native, shares his passion for the art of smoky infusion. “It’s to enhance your drink. You’re adding an extra, smoky flavor to it to bring out some extra notes,” Miles explains. His passion for the craft is palpable, and it’s no surprise given the company’s rapid growth and support from the local community.

Higher Order Drink Smokers has expanded its reach beyond cocktails. These versatile devices are equally adept at infusing cheeses and meats with the desired smoky flavor on charcuterie trays. They come in four distinct wood types, each offering a unique flavor profile: Maple, Hickory, Cherry, and White oak, encouraging experimentation with herbs like lavender and rosemary for unique combinations.

Miles’s dedication to craftsmanship shines through in each Higher Order Drink Smoker. Born and raised in Tampa, he holds a deep appreciation for the local community and the importance of handcrafted quality. The company takes pride in ensuring that every product meets their high standards.

Using Higher Order Drink Smokers is a breeze. Users simply take a pinch of the world-class wood blends, ignite them for a mere 10 seconds, and then enjoy their transformed drinks and dishes.

In an era where craftsmanship meets innovation, Higher Order Drink Smokers has become a symbol of local success, revolutionizing the art of crafting cocktails and enhancing culinary experiences, one smoky infusion at a time.
