Rocking Libations: Berkshire Mountain Distillers Gin & Tonic

Legend has it that a sommelier once asked Julia Child what her favorite wine was. Her response was simple: “Gin”.

Gin its’s what’s for dinner.
Gin the other white meat.
Gin and Sin
Gin Gin Gin I like Gin!
Gin vodka with flavor.

I’ll keep this one simple people. Our friend Chris Weld at Berkshire Mountain Distillers makes two killer gins. Greylock Gin is more of a traditional London Dry with a crisp, clean flavor.

For a more floral taste, his Ethereal Gin is released in batches with each one having its own unique botanical recipe (think Bombay vs Bombay Sapphire)

Chose one of these and pour a healthy portion into a collins glass, top with tonic water and a generous squeeze of lime (to prevent malaria and scurvy).

That’s it… don’t over think it, just enjoy.
