Day 11 of 365

Most of your normal gins are based around the Juniper berry. Which is yummy and reminds me of hiking for miles and miles with Marc Moss in Yellowstone while we picked them straight off the plant and sucked on them for some flavor.

However, a Juniper berry is a fruit and wouldn’t count for this week’s theme (vegetable). That said, Hendrick’s Gin has an infusion of Cucumber, which does count and actually makes this quite tasty and unique.
