Three Cocktails for World Gin Day


The phrase “better letter than never” seems to truly define the Cocktails, 365 experience. We have these grand plans of involvement in major events in the cocktail movements of the day and then we promptly get involved with enjoying the event and not writing about it. Specifically, today, we’re talking about World Gin Day.

REVIEW – FEW Barrel Gin


Cocktails, 365 Rating: ★★★★★

This is a well-balanced aged gin that can really open up to both newcomers and gin veterans alike. It mixes well, and is an excellent addition to a still-small section of the gin world.

North Shore


The North Shore similarly relies on the gin to stand up to the heavier flavors playing along.

REVIEW – FEW Standard Issue Gin


Cocktails, 365 Rating: ★★★★★

Between the sheer uniqueness of the base grains creating a creamier gin and the powerful wallop of the higher proof, this has quickly become one of our favorite Navy strength gins. It’s balanced, powerful, and beautiful.

American Scribbles


American Scribbles keeps the FEW American Gin front and center, and tempers some of the sweetness with the bitters and plays on the citrus bite with the orange liqueur.

At first blush it came across as a sweeter than we prefer for a gin. However, revisiting the sample, the uniqueness began to endear it to ourselves.
