US Gins

BV I recently got hold of two Gins from the US (cheers Ben). They're different from each other, and quite different from the traditional London dry style most of us are familiar with.

First is the Bluecoat gin, an "American Dry Gin"from Pennsylvania. Quite citrussy, less juniper than you'd get from a London dry, and with 47% Adecent in a G&T.

Second is an altogether more complex affair, the Aviation,"American Gin" from Portland, Oregon. Is much less junipery than many other gins, while still being identifiable as gin. Works well in a G&T or a martini and in it's eponymous cocktail, the Aviation.

Both are well worth trying and as we should be able to get them regularly will go on the permanent menu.
