Back in the heyday of gin, the spirit’s seductive nature earned it the nickname Mother Gin. From lords to ladies, mistresses to maids all were captivated by the exotic botanicals within. Today we return to the dawn of the affair with a reinvention of the classic gin cordial style, updated for a contemporary pallet bringing fancy, modernity and dare we say it, a touch of femininity, to this wondrously old-world spirit. Made from scratch in Los Angeles from a select blend of 16 natural and whole ingredients. Enjoy by itself, topped with something bubbly or as a gin modifier in classic cocktails. It’s gin, reimagined. #convoswithliana
