What’s your New Year’s resolution? MSW has committed to being the market’s premier purveyor of craft spirits and we’re off to a raging start. We are proud to be offering Greenhook Ginsmiths’ American Dry Gin and Beach Plum Gin Liqueur. Greenhook is an incredibly exciting and ambitious project coming from Brooklyn native, Steven DeAngelo. Greenhook utilizes cutting edge distillation technique and impeccable base materials to make a spectacular gin. It works wonderfully as a blending partner in a balanced cocktail but also has the complexity to stand on its own. We have truly found ourselves a gem under the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
Greenhook starts each handmade batch with neutral spirit made from organic NY grain. Using a custom-made vacuum still, Greenhook is able to distill at a lower atmospheric pressure/ temperature, enabling capture of delicate botanicals’ aromas without damaging their nuance. Notes of elderflower and chamomile accentuate the backbone formed by the finest Tuscan juniper. The American Dry Gin is bottled at a respectable 94 proof, making it a better blending partner in cocktails than mass-produced, lower proof gins.
Greenhook Ginsmiths also boast the world’s first ever, commercially released Beach Plum Gin Liqueur. Inspired by the traditional and somewhat forgotten Sloe Gin, Steven has set out to create a regionally authentic version that is undeniably extraordinary. The beach plum is harvested along the coast of Long Island, and infused into the American Dry Gin. Turbinado sugar is added to balance the liqueur and provide it with depth and richness.
Cocktail culture is evolving rapidly and for the better. However, you can’t make a good soup unless you start with good stock. Add Greenhook Ginsmith’s American Dry Gin to your repertoire and you can’t go wrong.
