Perry’s Tot – Navy Strength Gin
Matthew Calbraith Perry served as Commandant of the Brooklyn Navy Yard from 1841-43. As early as 1833 he was instrumental in founding its Naval Lyceum to ‘promote the diffusion of useful knowledge – and cement the link which unite professional bretheren.’
We celebrate the attitude and approach that connects the ingenuity and grit of 19th century Brooklyn with contemporary enthusiasts who continue to revive an American cocktail culture. This original Navy Strength Gin – at 57% ABV – is the historical proof at which gunpowder might still be fired should it unfortunately be soaked by spilled spirit. ’Tot’, a British measurement for alcohol, gives nod to Navy Strengths roots. Aromatic and smooth, Perry’s is ideal for the gin aficionado.
Dorothy Parker – American Gin
In an age of restless brilliance, Dorothy Parker was a singular sensation. A new Yorker at heart, her national celebrity sprang from her sharp, biting humor and widely quoted quips. Regularly seated at the famed Algonquin Round Table, she occupied the city’s cultural and intellectual center stage. An iconic enthusiast of gin and an unconventional woman, no one could have been a more interesting drinking companion. Dorothy Parker American Gin – a blend of traditional and contemporary botanicals including juniper and elderberries, citrus, cinnamon, and hibiscus – is as delicious in a Gin & Tonic as it is in a Gin Daisy.
