The story of gin, a spirit known for its checkered past and colorful reputation, takes us from the battlefields of the Dutch Republic through London’s slums to the speakeasies of Prohibition-era America. Join us in this masterclass to explore both gin’s history and its current renaissance, including cutting-edge gins utilizing unique blends of botanicals. You’ll move from an overview of gin’s evolution into a comparative tasting, and conclude by learning about pairings featuring the many possibilities for gin-based cocktails. Leading the class is David McNicoll, New York-based brand ambassador for Brockmans Gin, whose many bonafides include co-founding the Scotch Whisky Club of New York.
