A doctor, a lawyer, and a political consultant walk into a bar … and five years later, their fledgling distillery in Upstate New York is making ADK Gin in a New World, American-style.
 
Adirondack Distillery sits in picturesque Utica New York.  Don’t know where that is? Nobody does, but that doesn’t matter. If you must know, if you are sitting in a Manhattan bar, Utica is more than half way to Canada from where you are. But more importantly, if you are sitting in a Manhattan bar and sipping on a finely-crafted cocktail, there is a fair chance that it was mixed up with one of Adirondack’s products. 
 
Founded in 2011, Adirondack produces a full line of small-batch, signature liquors, including 1,000-Stills White Whiskey, 601 Bourbon, ADK Gin, and ADK Vodka. Perhaps most interestingly, all of their products start with Corn as the base, giving each of their products a uniquely American bent. 
 
First and foremost, this is a “New World” Gin. What does that mean?  Well, it means that they are free to step out and explore. They expanded the realm of botanicals to include bilberry—a small fruit native to the Upstate New York region where they are based. So even though their Gin absolutely includes the requisite juniper berries, they step back a bit and let the other botanicals get a little face-time. 
 
That makes this Gin taste wholly different from your main-line London Dry Gin. And that can be a really good thing. For example, this Gin absolutely sings in an Aviation Cocktail because the subtle bilberry extracts enhance the lavender liqueur and other ingredients of that classic drink. This will be a fun Gin to play with.

As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
