It's time for the next installment of Tiki Tuesday in the Western Reserve Distillers Tasting Room. This time our resident tikiphile, Tim Harnett, will be doing a gin spin on this normally rum-soaked genre of cocktailing.
Despite rum's obvious dominance, gin also plays an important role in the cult of tiki. Gin's botanicals very often play just as well with other staples in tiki drinks, such as citrus, orgeat, falernum, and cordials. So it makes perfect sense to showcase WRD's craft gin in a dazzling array of tiki drinks.
On this special occasion, we will feature several time-tested gin tiki drinks from across the decades of the 20th century. Also up for grabs will be some wonderfully eclectic modern concoctions from mixologists and authors Shannon Mustipher and Kelly "Hiphipahula" Reilly.
Fear not if you're not a gin lover, as several rum-based favorites will be on hand. And as always, all of these will be at industry prices.
