North Shore Gin No. 11
Very, very limited quantity! Get it while you can. K&L spirits buyer David Driscoll calls it the best gin he has ever tasted...ever. The botanicals in North Shore's No. 11 Gin add fullness without taking away from the leading role of the juniper berries. The balance is remarkable and lends itself well to classic cocktails from a time when gin was king. When it was first released this gin was available exclusively to restaurants and bars. But after numerous requests from consumers who had No. 11 at their favorite dining spots, North Shore was kind enough to allow us to carry it. From the Beverage Tasting Institute: "94 points and a Gold Medal/Exceptional Rating. Clear. Dense, compacted aromas of honeycomb, lime soufflé, peppery juniper, and sweet spices. A soft, silky entry leads to a fruity medium-full of citrus custard pasty, pink peppercorns, fresh herbs, and honeyed juniper berries. Finishes with an long interplay of flavor with a touch of eucalyptus and minerals. A lovely, deeply flavorful, and elegantly styled gin that will be sensational in vintage cocktails."
