NY Distilling Dorothy Parker Gin - 70cl - 44% ABV
The initial intention of the New York Distilling Company was to create one gin, but during the development, whilst various recipes were being considered, the team decided that there were two recipes they could develop further. 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, brought something new to the wider gin category.
Dorothy Parker Gin -
Drinking Dorothy Parker, you’re in familiar juniper territory, 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, sure, but not at the expense of the spirit’s heritage.
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.
