Beverage Events Boston Bartending Service is a big fan of this original cocktail recipe for the winter blues, compliments of Bread&Gin.com. Gin is making a comeback and has been gaining popularity in bars around the world in recent years. St. George Rye is a rye based gin that features a strong taste of juniper with a hint of peppery caraway.
The Washington Post describes Dry Rye Gin as “Something like a cross between traditional London dry and a rye whiskey… absolutely amazing in Negronis.”Although not officially a requirement of gin, most gins work from a truly neutral spirit base. Not simply in the sense that the base alcohol is “unflavored,” but in the sense that the base flavor brings little to no discernible flavor of its own. Contrary to the traditional gin distilling process, St. George wanted to compliment the juniper flavor that is featured in many gins with a base that has more structure, texture and personality. It was decided that rye is a natural complement to juniper with it’s warm and peppery qualities that make this gin truly unique. Give this recipe a try and let us know what you think in the comments.
