Glorious Gin

MADE BY BREUCKELEN DISTILLING IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

MOUTH SAYS...

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

This gin is just as tasty with tonic as it is in a strong cocktail.

While all gins must contain juniper, a distiller can add any other botanicals they want to craft their own unique flavor. Most distillers keep the recipe secret, but our neighbors at Breuckelen Distilling proudly revealed their secrets –  lemon, rosemary, ginger and grapefruit.

Unlike many gins that are basically infused vodkas, Breuckelen's gin is distilled from wheat grown in upstate New York, so the base is really more like a white whiskey. In fact, they barrel-age the same wheat spirit to make their 77 Whiskey.

The warm ginger note makes it just right paired with Morris Kitchen's ginger syrup. For a deliciously easy cocktail, combine 2 oz gin, 1 oz syrup and 1/2 oz lemon juice over ice and stir until cold, then top with a little seltzer.

Did you know?

Gin can be infused with a wide variety of botanicals, but it MUST contain juniper berries, which are responsible for that distinct, piney, gin-y flavor.
