Free Tasting: GreenHook Ginsmiths American Dry and Beach Plum Gin

Join us, Friday, October 26, between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m. when Steven DeAngelo, owner and Master Ginsmith at Greenhook Ginsmiths pours samples of their American Dry and Beach Plum Gins.

Greenhook Ginsmiths – a reference to the Dutch name for Greenpoint, Brooklyn, highlighting the connection between New York and New Amsterdam and between English Gin and Dutch Genever – opened their doors earlier this year under New York born and bred owner/operator Steven DeAngelo. Steven crafts his gin – classified as an “American Dry” – in a custom copper alembic still which functions under a vacuum. Distilling under vacuum allows him to operate the still at significantly cooler temperatures than is typical, resulting in a cleaner, fresher style, and greater purity in the flavors of the botanicals – which include Tucan juniper, chamomile, elderflower, Ceylon cinnamon, and blue ginger.

The Brooklyn-based Ginsmiths also produce a Beach Plum Gin Liqueur, their take on a classic sloe gin, but utilizing a local, indigenous fruit. Made by infusing their classic gin formula with Long Island beach plums and a touch of Turbinado sugar, this liqueur makes a great addition to a variety of cocktails and is also entirely satisfying simply mixed with two parts tonic water. Produced in small batches without the addition of preservatives, this is a delicious and inventive spirit.
