New York grown corn spirit w/ Albanian Juniper, Rose, Apricot, Orris Root, Lemongrass & Kasu Shochu (made from Sake rice used to make Brooklyn based sake, from Brooklyn Kura).
TASTING NOTES: A Land of Muses is at once a classic gin and a rebellious offspring. A juicy juniper grown on coastal Albania accounts for the largest botanical by volume while kasu shochu, the re-fermented and distilled rice from Brooklyn Kura's Sake, really steals the show on the nose -- reminiscent of almond joys and a tropical fruit salad. Bright herbs like lemongrass and lemon balm, grown here on The North Fork, leave the lasting impression.
The name is an homage to all our muses, the growers and the makers from the world over, that inspire us to search and explore; to find and appreciate the natural world and all that grows around us. That is a land of muses. Years ago, a tailor friend of mine (named Taylor) would say he was sticking to the classics, while sticking it to the classics. Think of that while you sip a Muses Martini.
