When we say Gin, you think “Gin and Tonic?” It’s one of the more popular mixed drinks at the bar, but we’ve already had this classic on the show. So, with two new gins to taste, we’re serving up a “Gin Rickey” to our panelists on this episode.
We’ll taste two delicious Washington liqueurs first as a straight shot. Then with the same liquor, we’ll taste it mixed as a cocktail…giving you two different perspectives. In Episode 10, we’re tasting:
Big Gin - Captive Spirits, Seattle WA
Aviation Gin - House Spirits, Portland OR
You’re one-up on the panelists: All they know is that they’re liqueurs. They won’t know the names or brands until after they’ve talked about them and picked a favorite as a straight-shot and a favorite as a cocktail.
In Episode 10, host Brian Calvert is joined by panelists Marina Rockinger of Star 101.5, Seth Wayne and Denise Whitaker of KOMO 4 News, and Nick Eaton from the SeattlePI.com.
We filmed this episode inside Captive Spirits in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. This is a small distiller that specializes in gin, and it was really great to meet the crew. And Holly, the food was outstanding!
