Gins, the fashionable classics

 -

Gin is an English spirit with alcohol content between 43 and 47 degrees, for processing distilled unmalted barley, and flavored with angelica and cardamom, among other herbs.

Among the most classic gins are 3 brands that do not lose their privileged position among the tastes of consumers in the entire world:

  • Beefeater Gin is a brand created in London by James Burrough Ltd, is made ??with neutral grain spirit, macerated with botanical ingredients to give flavor and finally distilled. This brand is exported to over 100 countries, sales in approximately 21 million liters and is currently distributed by Pernod Ricard.
  • Bombay Sapphire gin is a brand created in 1987; its name is the result of a competition between advertising agencies and refers to the popularity of gin in India during colonization. It is very easy to identify it by the light blue glass bottles with flat sides and engraved with the silhouette of its ingredients. Currently it is distributed worldwide by Bacardi.
  • Hendricks’s gin. This brand was created in Scotland by William Grant & Sons, in their preparation is used juniper, rose damascena and cucumbers. Its bottle is dark brown and vintage look and tastes very special. Hendricks’s uses a mixed spirit drink obtained from the Carter-Head still created in 1948, of which there are only a small number in the world, and a still Bennett, originally built in 1860.

The Glamourous Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary is a well known cocktail. Its distinctive red color is very attractive and offers glamour to the warmer nights. Now that the weather is good, the Bloody Mary is a good alternative to mix different flavors.

Traditionally, this cocktail mixtures vodka, tomato juice, salt and black pepper, a few drops of Tabasco sauce and a little lime or lemon juice. Served very cold, it is even better with a little salt and lime on the rim of the glass. In this way, the tomato marries well with the potent flavors of Tabasco and vodka.

It supports several variations, as the spicy pepper and Tabasco can be increased or lowered according to the consumer taste. In the United States, they often replace vodka for gin and is drunk as an appetizer before lunch or dinner. No one knows the exact origin of this sweet and tasty cocktail, but according to the most widespread theory it was invented by Fernand Petiot, a bartender from the New York bar in Paris who found this formula in 1921.

Since then its fame spread to various countries across the world and started to be really popular in the U.S., where it is consumed today. His name is also curious: it is named after the daughter of Henry VIII, Mary I of England, better known as Bloody Mary. She wanted to restore Catholicism in England, causing many deaths. Here comes the Bloody marry, bloody meaningful for England.

The legend says that this cocktail, by its ingredients, is perfect to fight hangovers. I recommend it after a heavy dinner with friends.
