Russell Henry Hawaiian White Ginger Gin (750ml) (Previously $37)
Crispin Cain, former distiller for Germain-Robin, famous for their California brandy selections, has decided to jump into the gin game as well with three of his own under the Craft Distillers portfolio. The labels and the overall packaging are as elegant as the spriits themselves. If you've been making Moscow Mules with vodka, the time for doing that is over. The Hawaiian White Ginger gin is the perfect replacement. While the spice and sizzle of the fresh ginger comes through on both the nose and the finish, the profile isn't dominated by it. This is a very graceful gin that moves over the palate with lithe balance.
