" Pink gin, a Victorian-era throwback said to have been first concocted by the Royal Navy, achieves its pale salmon color from the botanicals and bitters used to mellow the spirits strong juniper profile. This English gin, made in pot stills in small batches, gets its name from the Gin Act of 1751, legislation designed to restrict the sale of demon gin to the poor. Consider it for a blushing martini or gimlet, or simply serve it on the rocks with a spritz of lime and just a splash of good tonic. " ~ Florence Fabricant, The NY Times
