Best Gins in 2013: Comb 9 Gin

Iron Horse Grill bartender Vinnie Vigliotti prefers Comb 9 for its hint of honeycomb sweetness that shines in the restaurant’s #9 Martini.

Bartender, Iron Horse Grill
Favorite Gin: Comb 9 Gin
Why: “It’s a smooth gin, not overly rough or assertive, with a hint of sweetness from the honeycomb base used in its distillation. The other ingredients, especially the exotic flavor and golden color of the saffron and chartreuse, meld together in a truly unique and drinkable way.”
