Blue Bottle Gin

Blue Ruin is a robust, assertive, juniper-forward blend that will appeal to traditionally minded gin drinkers. Its name harkens back to an epithet for gin used by anti-spirits crusaders during the “Gin Craze” that followed England’s Glorious Revolution. However, unlike the original Blue Ruin that so frightened those 18th-century moralists, this blend’s powerful evergreen notes are rounded out with herbal notes of rosemary and thyme.

Brewing your own gin is simple. Pour the blend into a vessel containing 750 mL of your favorite middle-of-the-shelf vodka (like Smirnoff) and put it in a cool, dark place. After four days (or longer if you prefer more flavorful gins), strain out the botanicals and pour yourself your favorite drink!
Bumble recently launched in India and celebrated with a launch party at City Palace in Jaipur. Instagram posts and stories reveal that the CEO Whiteny Wolfe Herd and various celebrities were in attendance. Several photos of the event show elephants being ridden with the Bumble logo painted on their faces. According to PETA Executive Vice…

But there is one down side to the coveted drink. As much as everyone loves it, there’s something about gin that people associate with being emotional and a “sad drunk.” But is there something about gin in particular that makes us sad, or is it alcohol in general?Lately, Instagram has sucked for a lot of reasons: posts are no longer in chronological order, influencers are reportedly being screwed out of money, and now, on top of everything else, Instagram alerts someone when you take a screenshot. Is nothing sacred?! Long gone are the days of snapping pics of your ‘friends’ and then…

In a gig on Monday night, Aziz Ansari talked for the first time about the allegations of sexual misconduct made against him last year. During a massively oversubscribed gig at Village Underground in New York, Ansari said he hopes he has “become a better person.” Vulture first reported the comments. The site said Ansari led…The silver lining to all this? There may be some truth to the the fresher week mantra, “beer before liquor, never been sicker; liquor before beer, you’re in the clear.” Again, it’s based on the alcohol content. “If you end the night drinking beer you are taking in less units as there is a lower ABV for the amount consumed. However, if you are drinking shots when you are already intoxicated, you are likely to consume many more units, much quicker.” To be honest, it’s not good news. Due to the high alcohol content in gin, Toner says ” it will act as a depressant if it’s drunk in large quantities, and/or in a short space of time.” But what about the other common myths about alcohol, are any of them true? Do different alcohols make you a different kind of drunk? Does tequila really make you crazy? Again, it’s all to do with the alcohol content. Toner says that “something like an alcoholic energy drink will have both sedative and stimulant effects, so while it will initially make you hyper, when the alcohol consumed begins to depress the central nervous system, you will become drunk.”This is because “alcohol is a sedative, and depresses the central nervous system, therefore making people less able to regulate their thoughts and feelings. If you are feeling emotional about something, you are more likely to express this without normal inhibitions.” So there you go, don’t get drunk if you’re already in a state about why your latest Tinder date hasn’t responded to your three day old message. It’s just not worth it.

Also, apparently pretty much any drink with a high ABV content, if drunk in large quantities in a short timeframe may well make you “crazy”. So that explains why you go mad after a few too many Margaritas.Prices vary based on delivery destination (it’s a tax thing), so please change it if you’re not shipping within United Kingdom as it might affect the price!

A good balance of citrus and juniper – the citrus mainly coming from pink grapefruit, but fresh orange and lemon play their parts. Subtle hints of vanilla-rich angelica and spicy cardamom in the background.

This expression boasts a hefty helping of pink grapefruit influence, so we reckon this will be perfect for summery serves!We will not publish your contact details.

Much of the gin was drunk by women: consequently children were neglected, daughters were sold into prostitution, and wet nurses gave gin to babies to quieten them. This worked provided they were given a large enough dose!

Gin had become the poor man’s drink as it was cheap, and some workers were given gin as part of their wages. Duty paid on gin was 2 pence a gallon, as opposed to 4 shillings and nine pence on strong beer.
Gin was the opium of the people, it led them to the debtors’ prison or the gallows, ruined them, drove them to madness, suicide and death, but it kept them warm in winter, and allayed the terrible hunger pangs of the poorest.

Once again the government was forced into action. A new ‘Gin Act’ was passed which raised the duty on drink and forbade the distillers, grocers, chandlers, jails and workhouses from selling gin.
On Monday 17th October 1814, a terrible disaster claimed the lives of at least 8 people. A bizarre industrial accident resulted in the release of a beer tsunami onto the streets of London…The horror of the situation in London was portrayed in a print by Hogarth called ‘Gin Lane’. This shows a drunken woman with ulcerated legs, taking snuff as her baby falls into the gin-vault below. Henry Fielding, author of the book ‘Tom Jones’, also delivered a pamphlet to the government stating his protest against the perpetual drunkenness of the Londoners.

In 1830 the Duke of Wellington‘s administration passed the Sale of Beer Act, which removed all taxes on beer, and permitted anyone to open a Beer Shop on payment of a two-guinea fee.

People would do anything to get gin…a cattle drover sold his eleven-year-old daughter to a trader for a gallon of gin, and a coachman pawned his wife for a quart bottle.
The government decided that the tax must be raised on gin, but this put many reputable sellers out of business, and made way for the ‘bootleggers’ who sold their wares under such fancy names as Cuckold’s Comfort, Ladies Delight and Knock Me Down.The authorities believed there would be trouble the following day but nothing happened. The mob lay insensible in the streets, too drunk to know or care.

On the last night, as the last gallons of gin were sold off cheaply by the retailers who could not afford the duty, more alcohol was drunk than ever before or since.

Blue Bottle Gin is the creation of head distiller, Matt, whose interest in Gin and passion for the craft of distilling was rewarded when he was made a Scholar and Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Distillers. Blue Bottle Gin can be found at various bars and restaurants throughout Guernsey. Where would the Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Society have been without Isola’s infamous gin?

The award-winning Blue Bottle Gin is another boutique gin distilled within the Island that draws inspiration from the beautiful coastline for its handcrafted taste. Alongside the traditional juniper, drinkers can delight in the tropical (almost coconut) scent of the local gorse flowers, which annually turn the Guernsey cliff tops into fields of bright gold.

What is the number 1 gin brand?
Beefeater Gin The number one spot on the list goes to Beefeater Gin, one of the most historic brands of gin on the market and one that has called London its home for the entirety of its lengthy lifespan.
Blue Bottle Gin comes to us from the Three Fingers Distillery on the Island of Guernsey and features a selection of botanicals which include juniper, cubeb pepper, nutmeg and local gorse flowers. The name comes from the creator looking at a fly under the microscope and discovering its intricacies and beauty which could easily be missed – hence the brand’s tagline “Look for beauty everywhere”.The inspiration behind Roku is to craft a gin that utilizes Japanese ingredients at their peak aroma and flavor. The six Japanese botanicals that go into it are Sakura flower, Sakura leaf, Yuzu peel, Sencha tea, Gyokuro tea, and Sansho pepper, all of which are harvested at their peaks. They are combined with other typical gin botanicals to make a gin that is distinctly Japanese. Even the bottle itself is a symbol of the mindfulness that goes into it. Bottles of Roku Gin are shaped like hexagons, representing the six botanicals. Roku Gin is another unique and crystal clear gin that is delicate and made with great attention to detail.

The Botanist is made with 22 hand-foraged, wild botanicals. These include birch leaves, wild thyme, wood sage, water mint, oris root, a collection of wildflowers, and barks. The Botanist is the most botanically rich gin on the market. It is bursting with an array of flavor notes that all contribute to something greater than the sum of its parts. The Botanist is ideal for the most simple gin cocktails, and switching up different tonic waters effortlessly brings even more life out of it.
The flagship bottle of Gordon’s brand is its classic London Dry Gin, and the others include a Sicilian Lemon gin, Premium Pink, and Tropical Passionfruit. Gordon’s cans and sells a gin and tonic cocktail made with its signature gin. Unfortunately, the base spirit is not the best foundation, so any expression built on top of it fails to perform.

What is in gin that makes you cry?
Due to the high alcohol content in gin, Toner says ” it will act as a depressant if it’s drunk in large quantities, and/or in a short space of time.” This is because “alcohol is a sedative, and depresses the central nervous system, therefore making people less able to regulate their thoughts and feelings.
Gordon’s prides itself on being “the ginniest of gins” but this is actually more of a turnoff to us than it is alluring. While the juniper berry is supposed to take center stage in a London dry gin, it is also supposed to be well-balanced by a range of other botanicals. In the case of Gordon’s, the unwavering dryness is what keeps people away from gin. At an average price of just $12 a bottle, this is gin is popular due to its price rather than its taste and quality.The only technical difference that makes Aviation an American gin is that it is made in America. This gin, the only bottle in the brand’s catalog, is made with a typical range of botanicals found in a London dry gin such as lavender, coriander, anise, and, of course, juniper. It profiles definitely qualifies for being a dry gin, but its slightly smoother drinkability does make it distinct. This gin is not the most complex, but its straightforward and familiar character gives American gin some well-deserved kudos. Aviation’s lack of variety is really the only thing missing. It is a classic-tasting gin made the traditional way and is a great buy for less than $30, so if you are curious about celebrity-owned spirits, you can rest assured this one will come through.

Gin contributes to so many different cocktails, both classic and modern, and if you are keen on keeping your home bar well stocked, it is never complete without a quality bottle of gin. Unlike other spirits, though, gin is widely inexpensive, so trying out different brands and finding your own personal preference is more accessible than you might think.
Plymouth’s signature expression is technically a dry gin, but its bright and vibrant citrus character makes its function a bit more nuanced than a typical dry gin. This gin is best in any spirit-forward cocktail, like a martini, for example, and a lemon or orange twist will make it that much better. Plymouth’s lineup does not stop there, though. There’s also Plymouth Sloe, Fruit Cup, and a Navy Strength .

Under the current craft cocktail renaissance, gin is being given new life and new chances by drinkers eager to expand their alcoholic palette. If you are curious about the spirit or want to give it a fair chance, here is your guide to finding brands that will give you the best shot of becoming a proud gin drinker.The flagship bottle of Hendrick’s includes botanicals like chamomile, elderflower, and other ingredients common in Scotland. Then, after distillation, the gin is infused with rose and cucumber. Other bottles in Hendrick’s catalog take these bright botanicals to another level. Its Flora Adora expression is garden-inspired with bursting floral notes and the others include a sea-inspired gin, a citrus-forward one, and the special edition Midsummer Solstice.

Gray Whale Gin is made using botanicals found along the annual journey the mammal takes along the pacific coast. These include sea kelp, Californian limes, mint, almonds, and fir trees, along with juniper berries. These botanicals are infused into a neutral spirit distilled six times, an ultra-smooth foundation on which they can prosper. This is the only bottle of the Gray Whale brand, but it is truly a one-of-a-kind gin that is also fairly priced.
This brand is very affordable, priced well below $30, but where Bombay Sapphire comes up short is exactly where a brand like Gordon’s goes too big. Gin is supposed to be a juniper-centric spirit that is densely flavored and supported by surrounding botanicals, and Bombay Sapphire’s character is just mild.Hendrick’s flagship bottle remains supreme, though, and is one of the most flavorful gins on the market. However, it barely remains under $40 and its additional expressions come at an even higher price, landing it at a middle spot in this ranking.Tanqueray’s flagship bottle is instantly recognizable as a London dry gin, with its juniper berry at the forefront of its profile. However, the other botanicals seem to get lost in the background, failing to come out and support the juniper. Even so, Tanqueray remains an excellent London dry gin, one of the fundamental expressions of the style, in fact.This brand also offers the Plant Conservation edition, which is sold to raise money for botanical garden conservation. The Botanist is proud of the land that forms its spirit, and this passion for fresh and all-natural ingredients comes through in every ounce of its gin. We love this one a lot, clearly, but this brand was just shy of taking first place.

This very special makeup is directly inspired by the Fairmont Empress Hotel in British Columbia, Canada, which opened in 1908. This gin is a reflection of the hotel’s sophistication, elegance, and combination of timeless style and modern influence. The only thing lacking in Empress 1908 is there are no other bottles to choose from. However, the gin that it does make is so good that producing any others really isn’t necessary.
The signature bottle of the brand is Bombay Sapphire, and others include Bombay Dry, the citrus-enhanced Premier Cru, the far east-inspired Sapphire East, and Bramble, which is naturally flavored with raspberries and blackberries. Bombay Sapphire also sells a canned gin and tonic, which is a refreshing and simple alternative to your typical hard seltzer. Beefeater’s flagship bottle remains the best gin on the market when all things are considered. Its profile promotes the juniper with an extensive and classic range of supporting botanicals. Its character is balanced, sharp, and complex, making it perfect for any cocktail you can think of no matter how basic or complex. Plus, at an average price of less than $20, it simply can’t be beaten. It is the quintessential London Dry Gin, and if you only ever buy one bottle of the spirit, this is the one to get. Not only is this gin a reflection of these magnificent creatures, but a portion of its profits are also donated to Oceana, an ocean conservation non-profit. So, by going for a bottle, not only are you getting a super unique gin rich with botanicals specific to its environment, but you are also supporting an amazing cause. The other botanicals that go into Drumshanbo Gunpowder include Indonesian grapefruit, Kaffir lime from Cambodia, meadowsweet from Drumshanbo, and other typical gin ingredients. It is the gunpowder tea, though, that makes this gin stand out. It is bright, vibrant, and delicate; the perfect complement to the foundational juniper. This gin is a result of combining two things that otherwise would never go together, and it is safe to say it worked out very well. It is the brand’s Tanqueray No. 10, however, that deserves more credit. This expression of the brand is also a dry gin that has a much greater presence of citrus. This enhanced flavor does exceptionally well to propel the juniper forward while also making the spirit more vibrant and fruity. The price jump from the brand’s flagship bottle to its best one is about roughly $10, which is probably worth it, but the discrepancy between the two is worth noting.

The entire Plymouth lineup is a very affordable and versatile one. This brand has been around for a long time for good reason, so if you have never had an introduction to the Plymouth category, do not hesitate to seek this brand out.
Other gins in the Drumshanbo Gunpowder catalog include Californian Orange Citrus and Sardinian Citirus, two naturally flavored expressions that kick up the lemon and grapefruit botanicals. This is a very unique brand of gin and one you definitely should not miss.Sipsmith also makes a Sloe Gin, a style that largely flies under the radar. Sloe Gin is made by resting gin on sloe berries, which Sipsmith harvests at their peak in the fall. The gin absorbs the flavor of the berries and its ABV is reduced, making Sloe Gin perfect for low-alcohol cocktails or just adding some more dimension to classic ones.The products of Beefeater are reflective of Payne’s expertise, as each one is as balanced, approachable, and versatile as any other. The secondary bottles in the Beefeater lineup include a Pink Strawberry expression and Beefeater 24, which is made by steeping 12 botanicals in the gin for 24 hours for a bolder, more refined rendition of its classic recipe.

Who makes blue bottle gin?
Blue Bottle Gin is the creation of head distiller, Matt, whose interest in Gin and passion for the craft of distilling was rewarded when he was made a Scholar and Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Distillers. Blue Bottle Gin can be found at various bars and restaurants throughout Guernsey.
Bar Hill Tom Cat gin is matured in American oak, similar to bourbon whiskey. This takes the honey notes to a whole other level, enriching them with barrel notes of vanilla and caramel. Gin is most commonly enjoyed in cocktails, but Tom Cat is well suited for sipping straight. It’s that good. As if you needed any more convincing to try out this amazing brand of gin, Bar Hill has been sponsoring Bee’s Knees Week since 2016, an annual celebration of the cocktail and the hardworking bees that contribute to the brand’s gin. Empress 1908 is also made using a tea blend made up of teas from all over the world, as well as cinnamon bark, ginger, rose petal, coriander, and juniper. These botanicals combine for a gin that is floral, fruity, and spicy but still driven by the dry juniper. The one-of-a-kind botanicals found here make for an equally special gin. Monkey 47 is nuanced and complex and unlike any other gin on the market. The only setback is that it is expensive. The flagship bottle of the brand costs over $60, which definitely exceeds competitors. The annual “Distillers Cut” release and other special editions are even more pricey. However, if gin is your spirit and you don’t mind splurging on a bottle, it does not get much better than this one.Sipsmith produces an outstanding, well-rounded lineup of gin, but its most unique takes on the spirit are priced quite high. Its flagship London Dry is within a reasonable price range, however, and if you do spend the money on the others, you will definitely get your money’s worth.

Even light alcohol consumption increases the risk of breast cancer. Alcohol use decreases folic acid levels and alters hormone levels and their associated biological pathways.
Gin has less sugar and fewer calories than some other liquors. If you already consume alcohol, gin may be a slightly healthier option. Be careful with mixers, however. They can make the sugar content of your drink skyrocket. While some online articles have championed the benefits of drinking gin due to the properties of juniper berries, from which gin is derived, no evidence suggests that juniper’s antioxidants survive the fermentation process. When used as a control in a study on red wine, gin showed no special antioxidant properties. Compared to wine and beer, gin has a very low number of polyphenols (plant nutrients with antioxidant properties). These non-alcohol components appear partly responsible for the various health benefits associated with alcohol. Red wine is packed with polyphenols, so consider swapping your gin and tonic for a glass of red wine.Alcohol interacts with drugs and other medications, sometimes making them less effective or even harmful. In addition to side effects such as nausea and drowsiness, more serious problems are possible, including internal bleeding as well as heart and respiratory problems. However, there are several health benefits associated with the light to moderate consumption of any form of alcohol, i.e., about 1 drink a day for women and 1-2 for men. These include: Alcohol intoxication has been linked to difficulty achieving arousal and orgasm. In addition, it corresponds with increased sexual risk behavior, including condom-use resistance and incidents of victimization. While a similar Dutch and Belgian drink called jenever was popular at least as early as the Medieval Period, gin was invented in England in the 17th century. It then became commonplace during the “Gin Craze” in the early 18th century. England’s monarchs allowed unlicensed gin production while imposing heavy duties on imported alcohol, making it a cheap alternative embraced by the lower classes. Alcohol has a U or J-curve relationship with certain conditions. While light drinking has a positive impact on them, heavy drinking negatively affects or increases the risk for the following:However, in order to validate the relationship between moderate drinking and these benefits, more studies that control for other factors are needed. For example, one team of researchers found that, when they controlled for socioeconomic status, the supposed health benefits of light drinking were vastly reduced.Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau: “Definitions (“Standards of Identity”) for Distilled Spirits, Title 27 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.”

The impact of alcohol on medication can vary between individuals and change with age. Talk to your doctor about any prescriptions you take in order to see if you can safely consume gin.

What is the blue bottle of gin?
Blue Bottle Gin is a small-batch gin made on the Island of Guernsey by the Three Fingers Distillery. The gin is made with a blend of carefully selected botanicals, including juniper berries, cubeb pepper, nutmeg, and local gorse flowers.

If your order is placed on a Sunday or a Bank/Public Holiday, it will be processed the next working day.

This is a philosophy employed by most Organic and Biodynamic producers. The idea is to employ a ‘hands-off’ approach in the wine-making process. This means, minimal or no additional sulphur, natural and indigenous yeasts are used and often the wines are unfined and unfiltered enabling the wine to express itself in its most natural form.

Either certified or practicing organic farming techniques are used in the production of the product. Organic farming presumes that no harmful pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical fertilisers are allowed to grow the grapes. Research has shown that grapes are amongst other fruit that store those harmful substances, hence it is increasingly beneficial for your health to drink wines made from organic grapes. It also generally means no artificial or synthetic preservatives were used, no colours added and no agents added to alter the taste. If you are wondering, organic also means nothing genetically modified.
Either certified or practicing Biodynamic techniques are employed in the production of the product. Biodynamic vineyards are generally practising organic as well. The main biodynamic concept is that the growers intend to create a self-sufficient environment that works, heals and becomes an organism in itself. Biodynamic winemaking is very similar to organic – minimal intervention, strict guidelines regarding enrichment and additives. They try to use recycled packaging and solar energy where possible. Wines from healthier vines, made without much extra ‘going on’ are expressive and represent the soil, region and winemaking style well.IF WE ATTEMPT DELIVERY AT AN AGREED TIME AND DELIVERY IS NOT POSSIBLE WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHARGE FOR RE-DELIVERY UNLESS YOU HAVE GIVEN US OR OUR COURIER PRE-AUTHORISATION TO LEAVE THE GOODS IN A SAFE PLACE.

Alongside the venerable, classic labels we all know, we’ve seen modern classics emerge like Sipsmith, Portobello Road, NB, Jensen’s and others. A new generation of distillers taking a local approach to the expression of gin with care and skill.Located not far from the coast of France, and home to about 63,000 people, it has a complex relationship with both the UK and France. With places with names like Chateau des Marais, Fort Pezeries, Fort Hommet and the Le Trepied Megalith Buriel Chamber, and its own regional dialects you know it’s a place with a very rich history. I would go as far as say this was my preferred style of enjoying the gin- with an ice cube- and sip it with a good book or conversational companion in the same way you’d enjoy a single malt. As I survey Australian craft gins its important to me to place them in a global context, and its exciting to see that there’s been a parallel movement in the UK.

In what I think is a record for this blog, I received a bottle recently all the way from the beautiful island of Guernsey. This is a distance of some 17252km, which seems apt for a bottle that features an exotic fly on its label.
The gin offers a rich and complex palette, warm and floral on the nose, and a full palette with a lingering forward finish with a subtle sweetness. For an Australian it offers unfamiliar flavours and scents, so its a form of travel in a bottle. On the nose you get hints of vanilla and no hit of alcohol. So experiencing Blue Bottle gin was like imagining myself walking in a field on Guernsey on a warm afternoon with the sea breeze carring the scents of the wildflowers. A rich, integrated and complex gin that needs nothing else to express itself. In a first for Guernsey, Blue Bottle Gin is made at the Three Fingers Distillery in a gorgeous 500lt Arnold Holstein steam heated pot still by Matt Polli which batch distills all the botanicals at once to create 400 bottles each time. Matt is also a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Distillers, a most venerable body who date back to the time of King Charles 1.Just as in Australian craft gins, local botanicals often make an appearance, and they’ve chosen among the botanical mix some of the local fragrant gorse flowers that grows on the Island. In addition to the usual London dry botancial suspects, there is also nutmeg and cubeb pepper.

Why is gin so cheap?
Duty paid on gin was 2 pence a gallon, as opposed to 4 shillings and nine pence on strong beer. The average person could not afford French wines or brandy, so gin took over as the cheapest, and most easily obtained, strong liquor.
Beyond the towns, castles and fortifications there is a landscape of fields, beaches and landscapes shaped by the weather of the Channel. Happily, you can get a decent cocktail looks like on the Island too!

Well, I had to try! A hint of Noilly Prat and an olive, which made for a rich and flavoursome experience. But I’m thinking this is not where the gin really shines, it doesn’t need the competition of the other flavours. I’m not saying not in a Martini, but there are better ways to enjoy this gin…..This worked perfectly. The mix lightened the gin for easy drinking and it didn’t outstay its welcome, inviting another round. I think you could play with the garnishes with this gin and I tried fresh Rosemary (not bad) and Lemon Thyme (yum) that teased out the botanicals. You could pickout the flavour notes easily in this format.

Why is gin called blue Ruin?
Blue Ruin is a robust, assertive, juniper-forward blend that will appeal to traditionally minded gin drinkers. Its name harkens back to an epithet for gin used by anti-spirits crusaders during the “Gin Craze” that followed England’s Glorious Revolution.
Blue Bottle Gin represents craftsmanship and a passion for things well done. Aimed at an exquisite public that is looking for a premium product of great quality. A well integrated and balanced 47\u00ba gin.

As for the botanicals, we can find, among others, some very unique ones, such as Flor de Gorse (from the island of Guersney) which gives it subtle aromas of vanilla and coconut, pampered by the sweetness of other botanicals such as nutmeg and cubeb pepper. In addition we can find juniper, coriander, and citrus.

Another premium gin worth noting is the $700 Nolet’s Reserve gin. While not nearly as pricey as Morus LXIV, the two spirits are often placed side-by-side when expensive gins are ranked.
When compared to spirits like whiskey and tequila, gin is considered cheap. All it takes is a trip to your local liquor store to see that a nice bottle of gin is going to set you back about $30. That’s good news for us since we really like the stuff, but it means we rarely get to see our juniper-based best friend in the world record limelight… Unless we’re talking about Morus LXIV.

Before immersing herself in the world of spirits journalism, Candie has been many things: a bartender, a literary journal editor, an English teacher — and even a poet. Now, Candie shares her passion for gin with the world and hopes to help others fall in love with it, too (if they haven’t already!). When not writing, Candie enjoys sipping an extra-dry martini while painting or relaxing by the pool with a campy mystery novel.
While we don’t foresee ourselves easily trading upwards of $4,000 for gin, it’s fascinating to find out what steps are taken to produce a super-premium juniper spirit. Apparently, it’s mulberry leaves and porcelain jars.
