Drank: Painted Lady Gin (North Coast Distilling)


North Coast’s Painted Lady gin is named after some garishly painted Victorian homes in Astoria, where it was made, but you could forgive us if we thought it is a reference to heavy perfume. This is a deeply floral concoction, with the subdued juniper and chemistry-set’s worth of botanicals that have become the hallmark of American dry gins. In this case, lavender takes front and center, but at 90 proof there’s a bit of heat in the back. It’s a little hot for treating as a sipping liquor and a little too flowery to mix well with a decent vermouth. But its rose-and-lavender bouquet opens beautifully as part of a gin and tonic, with a well-rounded sweetness across the palate. Consider it for breezy summers on the patio, with the salt air on your cheeks.
