Gin is a strange liquor. I’ve found it to be pretty divisive in opinions. My dad has always said it tastes like ear wax–but I’m pretty fond of a gin and tonic (still muscling through on my way to finally appreciating scotch).
I can’t imagine Brooklyn Gin dividing anyone. No matter how you feel about the drink, the packaging is impeccable. Designed by Spring Design Partners, the bottle is beautiful from every angle–great coloring, glass texture, a fantastic seal-element, and a very nice neck band. Definitely going to find a bottle to pick up for myself!
