“I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most,
After three I’m under the table,
After four I’m under my host.”
-Dorothy Parker, The Collected Dorothy Parker
Dorothy Parker American Gin, a creation by the New York Distilling Company, has arrived at Bottles! This gin is a homage to Dorothy Parker, an American writer, critic, and satirist, known for “her sharp, biting humor and widely quoted quips.” (nydistilling.com).
This small batch gin is well-balanced and full of flavor. Juniper, coriander, elderberries and the inclusion of cinnamon gives a little spicy kick on the finish. Great for gin and tonics or sipping, but especially perfect for a neat martini, Ms. Parker’s favorite.
