Bootlegger 21 New York Gin sits in an impressive bottle. It looks like it came out of a time-machine from the 1930’s. But you want to know how it tastes, right? These guys did a great job. Their Gin follows a classic recipe of botanicals; juniper, coriander, bitter orange peel, and kris root.
Then they add lemon verbena leaf, a decidedly New World herb that adds nice, lemony, minty, herbal element. Bootlegger uses a “less-is-more” approach for their simple recipe and it really works well.
They the steep the five botanicals for a full 24 hours in 120 proof corn Spirit to draw the essential oils, then bottle the elixir at 94 proof and ready to go into your next G&T or classic cocktail.
