This New York Winery is Producing a Rose-Inspired Gin

by The Drink Nation on Aug 8, 2017 in Liquor

Can’t decide between a gin & tonic and a glass of rosé? Thanks to Wölffer Estate Vineyard’s newest gin release, you don’t have to choose.

According to Marie Claire, the Hamptons winery has released their second batch of Wölffer Pink Gin, which uses the winery’s acclaimed rosé wine as the base of the spirit rather than using bitters or botanicals, like most other gins. They do still use juniper as the base, giving it a traditional gin taste, but alongside spices used in gin like cardamom and and fennel, they also add a small amount of red grape skin extract.

The pale pink hue and fresh, floral aroma not only set it completely apart from any other gin on the market, but make it the most Instagrammable spirit around. Since this is only the second batch, it may be hard to find — the first batch only produced around 1,600 bottles — but if you do find it on shelves at your local liquor store or make a trip out to the Hamptons to get a bottle for yourself,  it retails for $34 a bottle.

With yet another rosé-filled summer coming to an end, there’s no better way to close out the season than with the chicest G&T around.
