NY Distilling 'Perry's Tot' Navy Strength Gin - Brooklyn, NY (750ml)
Named for the mid-century commandant from the Brooklyn Navy Yard who valued brain as much as brawn, NY Distilling found the happy balance between both. So the story goes, navy strength means all you need is a little gunpowder to get the canons firing, but here that 104 proof means a gin that's both a pistol (and perfect with tonic) and a poem. There's 5 lbs of New York State wildflower honey distilled into the mix, adding a soft, sweet edge to the bright orange aromas and flavors of white pepper and grapefruit zest, and a slightly unctuous, oily, silky texture. Fire when ready.
