This is my kind of drink with a view. The beautiful bar at Philadelphia Distilling offers this look into their shimmering stillhouse.
On the left is their original copper pot, in the middle is their new column and the right is the new, larger pot. All from Forsyths in Scotland and all shiny copper beauties.
The space in here is fantastic. As are the people. As are the cocktails. Go!
The term "Gin & Tonic" has come to represent an entire category of drinks centered on the core flavor combination of juniper and quinine. By adding other complementary flavors such as elderflower, orange peel, lemongrass, or charred grapefruit, the classic drink becomes elevated and deliciously complex. We offer G&T flights to help you experience the diversity of flavors that are possible. We also offer them by the bottle so you can take home your favorite!
#Friyay = cocktail hour! Our cucumber flavor pairs incredibly well with pineapple juice…we're a big fan of simplicity, and drinks that taste great with just a few ingredients. That's what our flavored vodkas aim to do: pair well, and taste good on their own. What're you sipping this evening? Photo credit: @phiaphotography #HansonOrganicVodka#DrinkRealVodka
I got to spend some QT with our friends at @triplesunspirits last night. I couldn't wait to get home to play around with Kris's fantastic white #rum . It's clean, expressive, and full of #hogo .
Hats off to Kris and all the craft distillers out there bringing us new spirits and expressions. Keep on keepin' on!

✴Rather Royal Gin - Distillery Botanica
I was honoured to attend the launch of the new limited release gin made by Philip Moore of Distillery Botanica in collaboration with the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney.
A complex but balanced gin using botanicals sourced from with the Garden itself including Pope John Paul Rose, Mandarin Leaf, Horehound and Curry Leaf Plant. Only 1000 bottles have been made and 50% of the proceeds go back to the Garden for its conservation program.
For more of my thoughts on this gin - head to the blog of @thejugernauts for the write up!

It's getting hot in here at Hanson Distillery as we make you super pure, seven-times-distilled vodka from organic grapes! Family-owned and family-operated means we show up every day to make sure this vodka is made exactly how we want it. We hope you enjoy. #HansonOrganicVodka#DrinkRealVodka
Just in time for Fall-inspired Spring cocktails? Yaasss! I was pleased to find this delightful liquor at a Toronto #LCBO yesterday. Juicy fruit perfume on the nose; fresh Bartlett pears on the palette, perfectly balanced sweetness complimented by a nice tang, and earthy cinnamon-and-clove notes bring it all together. I'm a big fan of @stgeorgespirits and look forward to finding more of their spirit-magic on our shelves soon.
Our equipment, including our 500 gallon hybrid still, is handmade, and then hand modified until it makes award winning spirits. Come see for yourself 7 days a week, 12-5pm with tours going off on each hour.
Wednesday is finished and we need a mid-week negroni. Luckily we're a gin distillery and can arrange such things! The Beach Negroni :: stir down 30ml Ink Gin, 30ml Campari, 30ml @maidenii sweet over ice. Recipe & photo thanks to @beachbyronbay & @nelly_foto 👌🏼
