I stopped by Spec's on the way home from work today. A sales rep. for Bluecoat American Dry Gin was there providing samples. I usually drink Bourbon, but I do like gin, usually Bombay Sapphire and Tanqueray Gin, so I decided to give it a try. She mixed a Bluecoat and tonic with a slice of lime in a plastic cup for me. It was good.

I got it for $26.00

After supper, I mixed a Bluecoat and tonic. It is good, but a different taste than Tanqueray or Bombay Sapphire. I am not sure if it is better than them or not. It will take more Gin & Tonics to evaluate how well I like it. :p

Have any of ya'll had this?

It's made right here in PA. They also make a 100% PA rye vodka and a very good Absinthe - Vieux Carré. I haven't tried the white whiskey that they make.

It's a rye vodka not a rye whiskey and yes I have had it. Not bad, reminds me of Sobieski.

It is also a moderately priced Polish Rye vodka. Really good stuff for the money.
