Exciting News!

Bookshelf at home

Things have been a bit more quiet on the site, but this quiet is merely an illusion. The exciting news is that we’re working on a new book! A toe to tip look at the world of gin. Naturally, we’ll be talking much, much, much more about it soon.

But for now I want you to know that there are a LOT of really exciting gins that I’ll be covering both in the book and in this space in coming months.

Keep enjoying gin, and stay tuned for  additional details!

It’s good to see the emphasis shifting from big buck marketing. World Gin Day is coming up, and so is the background buzz about who is putting what out there.

Not a lot new going on in gin this week. This tends to be a fairly quiet time of year. And to to add that, most of the gin news comes from some rather dark places this week. Have a drink for health, happiness, and to an early end to this interminable winter:

    The Gin Queen reviews Botanic Australis. “And so it is. A hint of juniper, a mouthful of warmth and then the botanicals play a fandango (look it up) in your mouth.” Good Spirits News reviews Old English Gin (): ” Quite smooth and very much in the tradition of drier English styles (as opposed to the malty Dutch versions).

Gin News [February 7th, 2014]

We follow up a rather busy week in gin with a somewhat quiet week in gin. With no big releases to speak of, we have to settle for some reviews and a pop star talking about gin.

Who was talking about gin this week?

Second Opinions

    The Liquor Lady reviews Barr Hill Gin () “It provides a unique aroma on the nose (sweetness from the honey definitely comes through) without losing the traditional gin aromas (i.e., juniper)” The London Gin Club Reviews Sipsmith VJOP “. This is a beefy, punchy gin and for its wonderful 57.7% it is very, very smooth as well.” Tom’s Whiskey Reviews is stepping into something new with “gin month.” This week he reviewed The Botanist (): “…the nose goes much more fresh and citrussy with lemongrass and lemon and lime peel, a touch of garden flora also.”
