Preamble by Steve Siciliano
I was beginning to wonder if West Michigan was going to have a summer this year but now that the warm weather is finally here, Barb and I have been beating the heat with some refreshing G&T’s. Siciliano’s liquor buyer John Barecki has been keeping the shelves stocked with a good variety of unique gins. The following are a few of our favorites.
FLOWER CITY GIN, $25.29/750ml
"Originated in 1865, F. Schlegel & Sons flower nursery was one of the many that defined the character of Rochester, NY. The Flower City, as Rochester came to be known, is deeply rooted in our culture here at Honeoye Falls Distillery. We created this gin using the finest ingredients in the tradition of our forefathers. Its familiar, juniper profile is complemented by a sweet floral character that will breathe fresh life into any cocktail you may enjoy. We honor our heritage with each bottle" (source).
ETSU GIN, $52.59/750ml
