ESP American Beauty Gin
Empire Spirits Project // New York, USA
Based in Manhattan, with a distilling location in Yonkers, Empire Spirits Project aims to make gin with unique flavor profiles. American Beauty takes traditional juniper and coriander profiles and blends them with rose, cinnamon and ginger.
Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
"Rose petal aromas are clear as is the cinnamon and coriander. The taste profile brings out these flavors with the added ginger and juniper coming in to play. Fear not the rose as it isn't the driver of the car, but merely a passenger. The finish has a spicy bite from the cinnamon and ginger. Try in a French 75 or a Tom Collins."
