Trevor Frye first tried Bayab Classic Dry Gin at Bar Convent Brooklyn and was hooked: “There was an essence that I couldn’t quite place: a creamy complexity with tanginess on the backend, with salinity and citrus. Turns out, it's from the baobab fruit, and it was a flavor that was totally new to me! The infusion of Zambian baobab fruit, juniper berries, coriander, rosemary, cinnamon, and of course salt gives this gin a bold burst of fresh African citrus that simply delights the taste buds.”
Matty McGee has always been a lover of gin, and when he first discovered Full Circle Distiller’s Archipelago Botanical Gin from the Philippines, he knew he had found something special. “I can't wait for folks to taste this gin, both in their cocktails and on its own! Archipelago is crafted from 28 botanicals, 22 of which are foraged from the Philippines, including fresh pomelo, dalandan, calamansi, dayap, mango, Benguet pine, sampaguita, ylang-ylang, and kamia flowers. It’s fresh, earthy, clean, and balanced. You’re in for a journey and a treat with this gin!” raves Matty.
“I really enjoy Roku Gin for its subtle complexity. The pepper and slight ginger notes pair well with winter-driven ingredients, whereas the florality of the gin also softens those spicy notes. Roku is the perfect balance for building a cocktail where softer flavors can shine,” says Christian “Suzu” Suzuki-Orellana. With an unparalleled soft roundness and subtle sweetness, Roku offers aromas of cherry blossoms and green tea that moves to a complex, multilayer palate of various botanicals, including yuzu, and finishes with crisp sansho pepper for a little spiciness.
