PRODUCT: Averell Damson Plum Gin
This gin-based liqueur made with local damson plums is unique and different. The vibrantly cherry-red spirit has a warm, fruity scent, like a cross between sweet vermouth and cherry juice. The flavor is more tart than sweet, with a lingering earthiness on the back of the tongue. Though a little too tart for straight-up sipping, it's a dynamite addition to the arsenal for adding flavor and color to gin-based cocktails, such as fizzes and punches.
