The Producer: What began as a kitchen experiment in 2007, Letherbee Distillers is now comprised of a band of experienced cocktaileurs and barkeeps hailing from Chicago. They produce a handful of unique spirits.
The Why:While it's a blend of 11 herbs and spices, this gin leans heavily on a few key ingredients and distinct spicy pepper notes reign supreme. This is one of the many reasons that Letherbee's Original Gin is colloquially referred to as 80% of a cocktail. There is already so much great flavor that very little is needed to create a complete mixed drink. Great for martinis!
