The informative back label quotes Dorothy Parker, “I like to drink a martini, Two at the very most. After three I’m under the table, After four I’m under the host.” Name after this gin lover, Dorothy Parker American Gin’s botanicals include: juniper, elderberries, citrus, cinnamon and hibiscus.

Wonderfully clean and fragrant with juniper presented lavender and camphor rather than pungent pine. Lime cordial and floral aromas with delicate spice. Water releases notes of nutty mushroom-like angelica root.
Initial sweetness is quickly countered by a cleansing peppery bite which appears to bind all the other more delicate floral and spicy flavours together in a balanced, well-integrated palate.
Juniper remains dominant but is well tamed throughout.
