Casino #2 cocktail. 1½ oz @longtabledistillery Gin, 1 oz maraschino liqueur, ½ oz orange juice, 1 oz. Lemon juice, there dashes of Angostura Orange Bitters. Shake with ice and strain into a coupe.
I got the recipe from Difford's Guide. It's a good site, even though there's that annual snark piece about other writers' Alexa rankings. It's Gin Is In, not Gin, I sin. Btw.
Stoked to have @sixdogsdistillery on board for our pop up this weekend at Spade design centre for the Feeding the Furballs fundraiser!
We’ve got a fabulous Six Dogs Gin Cocktail on the menu with proceeds going to the charity - you’ll be drinking to save the pooches!!! Don’t miss it - Saturday 25 November, 185 Lothian Road, Durban North 🙌🏽 @whats_on_durban @askashe @tril.0.gie.za @electrikdesign
Today a Dutch Gin created by 2 Dutch friends (Hans van den Eshof & Arjan Smit) and distilled by Distillerie De Pronckheer... 🍸🇳🇱
These 2 friends decided late 2015 that is was time to distill a Gin, the goal was to make a Gin that was unique and a high quality Gin!
It took them about a year to make the Goodsack Gin after some tasting and testing! 👌🏻 (Goodsack means that you are a very lovely person ❤)
The Goodsack Gin has 27 different botanicals... 🌿
The smell is fresh (soapy Lemon) with some Bergamot and Lemon Balm... 🍋
The taste is almost the same with some pepper on the tip of the tongue and some heat at the end... 😊
ABV : 42%
When making a Gin&Tonic you should use a Indian Tonic or the Mediterranean Tonic by Fever Tree...🍸
(Don't use a Citrus Tonic, to much Citrus flavour 😁)
Perfect serve :
- 5cl Goodsack Gin
- 15cl Fever Tree Mediterranean
- No Garnish or a spring of Rosemary

Here’s the Thanksgiving thought for you. The ROX Doc is an old man. But he does tastings and bottle signings quite often. This fellow came in, loved gin, loved ROXOR, but didn’t have enough $ for a bottle. He left the liquor store with a beer, but the ROX Doc couldn’t get the interaction out of his mind. So, he took a bottle back to the store for this young man. We’re pretty sure this is a Thanksgiving thing. May we encourage you to reach out to others, and maybe those not exactly like us. #lakewoodmedallion#ginisin#thatcallsforroxor#sharewithothers#lovethosenotlikeus#happythanksgiving#roxorgin
Today a Gin made in the heart of @london by @thelondonn1 ... 🤗🇬🇧🍸
This Blue Gin is distilled in small batches, this gin's unique flavour is the result of the quality of the raw ingredients used, as well as its distillation in Pot Stills... 👍🏻
During the 18th Century, London was a world-renowned hub for international trade, where all types of herbs and spices were bought and sold. 🌿
That's why the London Gin soon became the most complex drink on the market... (back in those days)
Loyal to this tradition, The London No.1 consists of 12 different botanicals from around the world! 🌍
Twelve carefully chosen ingredients that create a unique Gin, giving it a unique complexity, elegance and perfect balance! 🍸
ABV : 47%
Perfect Serve :
- 5cl The London No.1
- 10cl Thomas Henry Tonic
- Lime Zest
- 3 Juniper Berries

◾ Knut Hansen Gin◾
The coat of arms of this gin is the Hamburg sailor Knut Hansen, an honest guy who couldn’t get stopped by anyone on his journey! He took the liberty of visiting the places he had always wanted to see and had a myriad of adventures.
The two owners, Martin and Kaspar, monitor the cultivation of their botanicals closely, and care deeply about using North German botanicals only. Therefore, they make use of juniper that grows in the Lüneburg moorlands, the apples are harvested from the Alten land and their basil as well as their cucumbers are grown on their family owned greenhouse.
KNUT HANSEN DRY GIN is produced in a 200l Arnold Holstein copper still at the Dolleruper distillery near Flensburg. In an elaborate process, Martin & Kaspar distill their gin four times extremely slowly and in small batches - only in this way it is possible for them to preserve the unique taste and protect the natural aromas in the gin. ◾Gin & Tonic◾
We tried several neutral tonics and to us, the AQ Monaco tonic makes for the best combination.
It brings the delicate aromas to the front and gives the gin the head roll in the gin & tonic.
I never use cucumber as garnish because in my opinion it’s meant for salads and not for G&T’s! I prefer a small peel of orange and a leaf of basil instead.
If you want it more classic, you can swap the orange for a slice of fresh green apple instead. ◾Conclusion◾
I can appreciate this gin, but it could use a little bit more power. That’s the reason of course I used a soft, neutral tonic. ◾Score◾
My score for this Knut Hansen gin is 88/100 .
Tenu Spritz by @tenugin
4cl Tenu Gin

1 tsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
Fill a wineglass with 3/4 of ice. Swirl the ice until the glass cools down. Discard excess water. Add Tenu Gin and lemon juice. Finish by slowly pouring Rose Lemonade on top, mix and garnish with strawberry slices or other red fruits. Enjoy.

Fearing’s is always a big hit in Dallas. Grazing at the Ritz Carlton Dallas, our buddy Dean Fearing is, as far as we’re concerned, the Mayor of Cuisine in Big D. A legend at the Mansion on Turtle Creek, he’s the man that introduced a taco to a lobster. And now, you can have a ROXOR Gin with that taco. Stud-ly Awesome.

Today we focus on an amazing gin from Exmouth in Devon, United Kingdom: the “The Copper Frog Gin”! This is the short version! For the complete just visit my website or Facebook page!
Copper Frog Gin is a London Dry Gin made by Simon Hughes, in extremely small batches of only 50 bottles a month! Yes, you read well: I really wrote “50 bottles a month”! Simon told me about the unique production process of his “baby” (yes, he always talks about his baby when he talks about his gin!) and I was amazed to hear how much time , craftsmanship and love he puts in every ml of his gin.
I asked him if I could share his unique way of working with my readers and I could, but then I deceided not to! I’m sorry guys, I’d rather keep it a secret to protect Simon against competion!
What I can say, is that I was completely astonished when I learned about his modus operandi! I’ll give you just a small example but one that will amaze you!
Before bottling, Simon always uses his precious gin to clean the bottles, as he doesn’t want the end product to suffer from even the smallest impurity! He then throws away the used gin! I still am completely shocked about that! OMG! How about that!? I could go on, but this example alone shows the commitment and the true love Simon has for his “baby”. Off course, the key question is now: do you taste all this effort and commitment in the gin?
With al my heart, I can say: “Yes! You do!” This crazy frog gin … ehm … Copper Frog Gin is a blast!
It’s a high standard tradition English gin with juniper berries in the head roll, accompanied by a little bit of a roasted/smoked aroma with cassia bark, smooth coriander and a nice fruity twist in the finish with an amazing smoothness! Therefore, you have to taste the gin neat before pouring yourself a gin and tonic!
Gin and tonic
The perfect serve that I recommend is made with a Thomas Henry Tonic, combined with … well … nothing! Just four chunks of nice clean ice and no fuss!
OK, if you do want some garnish with it, you could use a small grapefruit peel!
Buy a Copper Frog gin now!
A golden 95/100 medal!

◾ Ha’Penny Potstill Gin.
This gin is named after the iconic Ha’Penny bridge that was constructed in 1816 as the first pedestrian link to the North and South of Dublin’s fair city. Dubliners could cross this bridge for the price of a ha’penny, the label takes its inspiration from some of the design details found on the Victorian ironwork of Dublin's famous landmark.
Ha'Penny Gin draws its inspiration from Victorian Dublin and the flora found in the walled gardens within Phoenix Park. The botanicals include blackberries, lavender, geranium and dendelion flowers as well as traditional juniper and other well known gin ingredients. ◾Gin &Tonic
The tonic that I recommend this time is the Thomas Henry tonic because it brings this nice gin to the forefront.
A second recommendation is the Gents Swiss Roots Tonic, a tonic which works great with the dandelion flower aspect of the gin, making the G&T slightly more bitter and earthy. ◾Garnish
The garnish that I used are couple of lime wedges , combined with some mint. I truly can say that it works just perfect! ◾Conclusion◾
This semi-floral gin is a quiet nice highlight in my cabinet and I truly will enjoy it in the future! ◾Score◾
My score for this Irish gin is 90/100, worthy of a nice shiny gold GinUrWay medal!

Although its story started in Innsbruck and Tegernsee, Alpine Gin is handmade in South Tyrol with a focus on the highest possible quality production standards.
You may call it an "Alpine Joint Venture." All botanicals are hand-selected, labels are custom-made and production efforts are controlled by producing only small batches.
Alpine Gin's flavour is achieved through the distillation of exclusively natural botanicals such as rose petals, rose hip and elderberry. ◾Botanicals◾
Before I serve you my perfect Gin & Tonic combination, please be warned that this Alpine gin is heavily influenced by the earthy gentian and is therefore a rather special gin! ◾Gin & tonic◾
The Tonic I used for my personal perfect serve is the
Erasmus Bond Botanical tonic, a complex tonic that lends some extra freshness to the G&T.
The garnish used was chosen for the same reason: two lime wedges, a small clementine peel and a mint spring. ◾Conclusion◾
I have to say that the Alpine gin is certainly not a gin for beginning gin drinkers. The combination of the gentian with the various floral aspects make for a very complex and special gin, one that I can definitely appreciate though. ◾Score◾
My score for this special earthy/floral gin is 87/100.
Heading to Deep Ellum tonight. May we suggest High & Tight, a hair style (yes the front is a barber shop) and a libatious state of mind, after a couple of their ROXOR cocktails in the speakeasy (the secret bar behind the barber shop). Pictured is the ROXOR Figged Up Freddy! There is usually a musical groove worth the experience too. Tell ‘em the ROX Doc sent you. They prescribe it ... High & Tight! @highandtightbarber @deepellumtexas @thebombfactorydallas @armouryde #cocktails#ginisin#speakeasy#thatcallsforroxor#thankabartender#roxorgin
