Melrose Park, Illinois that is! Why Melrose Park? Because there’s a funky little spirit maker there called Skeptic Distillery, and they were kind enough to send our East Coast and West Coast offices a couple bottles of a little thing that they call Ginquila.
You read that correctly. GINQUILA! And here’s what the fine folks at Skeptic Distillery have to say about it…
Ready for a new class of spirit?! Enter: Ginquila!
We guarantee you’ve never tried anything like this one… Ginquila is inspired by a cocktail called the Cantarito, a Paloma style cocktail served in a clay pot. Fusing this concept with the vibrant flavors of South America, we infused a gin base with fresh tropical fruit and spices including papaya, grapefruit, orange, lime, cinnamon, thyme, and Chipotle and Arbol peppers. But why stop there? Just to make sure this spirit is like nothing you’ve ever seen, we finished it in Tequila Barrels for a few months!
There’s no lack of innovation in the spirits world these days. And we’re grateful for that, especially when that innovation lets us try something new that we’ll hopefully enjoy. Did we like Ginquila? There’s only one way to find out! Click the play button on the following video:
