Beverage Dynamics shares the “affordable elegance and unrivaled complexity of premium gin” in the July/August 2014 issue.
Bendistillery‘s Crater Lake Estate Gin is named a favorite among gin enthusiasts. “Released each fall, the 2013 edition includes hand-harvested juniper, lime basil and lemon balm. After distillation, the 85-proof gin is briefly rested in oak.”
Minnesota Monthly‘s Rachel Hutton shares Phillips Gin-Ka in today’s TC Taste blog. A gin and vodka blend first introduced to the public in 1971, Phillips Distilling Company reintroduced Gin-Ka to the public this fall.
Inspired by James Bond, Hutton recommends the Vesper cocktail, ” a drink Bond invents in Casino Royale: three measures of gin, one of vodka, and half a measure of Kina Lillet shaken until cold and then garnished with lemon peel.”
