TOPO Organic Gin: T.G.I.F. Cocktail Recipes for June 24

TOPO's Piedmont Gin is an award-winning spirit.  The distillery itself was dubbed as, "The South's Best Distilleries," by Southern Living Magazine.  We would be remiss if we did not include our overall impressions about this company.  We have dealt with Mixologist and Spirit Guide, Esteban McMahan.  He's bubbly, friendly and professional.  It has been a real pleasure to work with him on this project.

We are certain that TOPO's success is due to this one man's efforts.  There's an image on the web site which reads, "Spring flowers and a gift of TOPO, truly a lovely pairing.  Or, you can just skip the flowers."  We completely laughed out loud upon having read that.  Tender.  But, funny most importantly.

(1) Piedmont Gin 750ml
Whew!  The nose is just robust!  It's spicy, only slightly floral and slightly sweet.  The taste however, is more laid back.  Easy to sip.  No burn.  Distinct.
