Even if you think you don’t like gin, there’s never been a better time to give gin another chance. This centuries-old, juniper-based liquid tradition is back in a big way. The process and botanicals used in quality distilleries today are producing some of the best gin ever made. The early 1900s, original Martini was made with gin, jazz and simple sophistication. Prohibition wiped out America’s supply of the good stuff but, finally, it’s time to indulge again. There are so many styles and types from which to choose, anyone and everyone can find (at least) one favorite. From the original Dutch Genever, to Old Tom, London Dry, Plymouth, and the hundreds of new, American-style gins, The Hooch Life will help you discover the best gin for you and your cocktail. You may know Tanqueray and Bombay, but there are so many well-crafted gins just waiting to tickle your fancy. Go back in time with an Aviation, French 75 or Bee’s Knees and see what the rage is all about.
