Behind the scenes at The Gin Is In

Hello friends! On this rainy Tuesday, why not come take a behind the scenes tour of The Gin is In? The drinks are always carefully measured.


Some people have a shelf for their liquor. Perhaps a modest bar.


Some people have three book shelves. (To be fair, there’s some tequila and a bourbon here. Plus your creme de violettes (4 types), spicy pear liquor, bitters, etc.)


Some people also fill up their entertainment centers. These truly are the luckiest people. (The birds are not alcohol. Nor are the games, as far as I’m aware.)


This is where the magic happens!


This is just the gin still life lying around. You know, to remind ourselves of the beauty of it all.


This is an average amount of citrus (and tomatoes) for the house. Scurvy is not a problem.



And this is Juan, the turtle! He says hello. And that he would like an Aviation, please.

    Kind of new to drinking gin. This is a good place to learn about and it truly helps to truly enjoy. Had no idea there is so much history and details to the drink and all the types of exciting cocktails that can be made. On my part really go for both the Bombay’s.

    Juan needs to get out more. And I am pleased to see that even professionals end up placing their bottles on any level/close-to-level space around the house. My wife thinks I’m peculiar that way.

    Hah! As the collection grows, so does the space required to host it. If its flat, and can bear weight. It holds gin! We do try our best to keep up with it [and make cocktails for friends using the near empties], but I’ve been to the homes of many a spirits’ writer. And it’s not even the slightest bit peculiar!

    Thanks! Katey deserves a lot of the credit for it as well. She is quite a fan of the Old Fashioned with an unusual bitter (as am I, when I’m not drinking gin!)
