NY Distilling

£33.66

Title

The initial intention for the then 3 man New York Distilling Company team was to create one gin. But during the development, whilst the various recipes were being considered, the team decided that although different, there were two recipes they could develop further and therefore decided to create two gins. They were not intended as a pair or as a contrast, merely as two great gins that both deserved to be made as they stood up to inspection and most importantly, in their eyes, both brought something new to the wider gin category.

Dorothy Parker Gin - 

Drinking Dorothy Parker, you’re in familiar gin territory with its punchy juniper flavours but elderberries, dried hibiscus petals, cinnamon and citrus take it off in a delicate, floral direction. It’s not traditional but neither is it “New Western” or whatever term one likes to call modern takes on gin. It’s a modern gin, but not at the expense of the spirit’s heritage, both classic and contemporary in equal measure.

Putting it through its paces, Dorothy Parker works well in a G&T, refreshing and floral but not too delicate to be drowned out by the tonic. It’s a good gin for an Aviation and delicious in a Bees Knees too.

Perry's Tot Navy Gin -

A ‘tot’ was a recognised measure aboard vessels (about 70ml) and if you were to try Perry's Tot neat, expect to pick up on a strong juniper forward gin surrounded by warming spice and earthy orange (the warmth may well be accentuated by the high ABV). A few sips in and the more delicate citrus elements reveal themselves, grapefruit emerges and so too does a lingering earthy note. A very well balanced, confident gin and one that should go on any gin lover’s must try list.

The botanicals used are relatively traditional, juniper, cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, lemon, orange and grapefruit peel, but there is one that jumps out as unusual – wild flower honey from upstate New York. Allen Katz describes the use of the botanical as providing an earthy/floral note on the nose which once pointed out we felt could be discerned, if a little hard to separate distinctly from any of the others. It clearly adds something to the ensemble though, and we’ll take his word for it that Perry’s just wouldn’t be the same without it.
