Spirit of the Week

Short Path Distillery Summer Gin
Regularly $29.99, Introductory Price $25.99

We’re going with another local distiller for this week’s featured spirit. Short Path Distillery started up in 2015. It’s founders, Jackson Hewlett, Zachary Robinson, and Matt Kurtzman, use their engineering and chemistry backgrounds to make innovative spirits. They arrived at their gin recipe and the botanical blend [juniper, coriander, lemongrass, eucalyptus, and lavender] because of the compatibility of the flavor molecules. I tried it and thought it was one of the most unique gins I’d ever had. The Summer Gin is excellent as well.

“Inspired by the wild juniper and blueberries that line the coast of Acadia National Park, our Summer Gin captures the essence of the Maine summers Zack and Jackson enjoyed growing up on Mount Desert Island. A blend of fragrant botanicals, juniper, infused with organic Maine blueberries results in a smooth, soothing gin best sipped on a hot summer day while relaxing on the porch.”

I could see using it with soda water for a simple blueberry gin fizz or with lemonade. At $25.99 you can get as creative as you’d like. Enjoy!
