Toronto, Oct. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Just in time for International Gin & Tonic Day, mixologists across Canada are reimagining the classic gin and tonic, inspired by Valley of Mother of God Gin. The riffs on this traditional cocktail will be available starting today and run through October or until supplies last at participating restaurants and bars.
“We’re overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and creativity this challenge has brought forth from some of the country’s top bartenders and mixologists,’ says Shelly Perry, Co-founder of Foxglove Spirits Ltd., the maker of Valley of Mother of God Gin.
“Made with 20 botanicals including juniper, rosemary, McIntosh apple and black walnut, this aromatic and crisp gin is so complex there’s so many variations you can make. For Minami Toronto, I went with simplicity to really highlight the gin and kept the secondary aromatics true to our Japanese roots with Mt Fuji bitters and yuzu,” says Nick Meyer, Regional Beverage Director at Aburi Restaurants Canada.
Here are some of the fine establishments where you can find some of the most creative takes on the classic gin and tonic:
