For this year’s Vernal we chose to focus on an ingredient that hits close to home and to draw on something familiar and grounding, and yet again, something not commonly associated with Gin.
Months ago, I was thinking about my grandparents’ little farmhouse and what it smells like – my permanently implanted scent-memories are of sun-roasted topsoil, cornhusks, juiced tomatoes, and horseradish…..
I realized that a horseradish flavored gin used in a Red Snapper (Bloody Mary with Gin) would taste like the farm. You see, our base alcohol is made from corn, the horseradish not only brings its own flavor of spice but also the flavor of the soil, and the tomato, well, is the main squeeze of the Red Snapper……And I digress.
In short: Vernal Gin 2020 = Horseradish.
