OsCo Automatic #5 Gin (750ml)
Michael Pierce and the gang from OsCo, a new distillery on 25th Street near Telegraph Avenue in Oakland, that's making some of the most interesting new gins and white spirits we've tasted in years. OsCo is part of a winery called Two Mile Wines, so all of the spirits are grape-based. Mike called this his "Sunday gin," an easy, citrus-flavored, mild-mannered gin that's meant for classic cocktails or G&Ts. Delicious, and the price is even more exciting. A local, "craft" gin that's under thirty bucks? We must be dreaming.
