“A perfect martini should be made by filling a glass with gin then waving it in the general direction of Italy.” – Noël Coward

VL92 Gin from the Patrick R. F. Blakley private collection

This private gin collection is comprised of 118 brands and 134 bottles hand-picked from across the world (all 6 populated continents). 20 different countries and 78 cities are represented worldwide, with 14 states within the US included. Botanicals from each inhabited continent also appear within the selection’s gins. This collection is hosted in New York State, so 15 bottles from 13 counties were chosen as part of the Buy Local campaign from I Love New York. The closest gin distillery is about 10 miles away while the most distant is over 10,000 miles from Syracuse.
