The Patrick R. F. Blakley Private Gin Collection

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


This private collection of gins is made up of 106 brands and 122 bottles hand picked from all over the world (5 different continents). 16 different countries and 57 cities are represented worldwide, with 12 states within the United States listed. Botanicals from every continent appear in the collection. This collection is hosted in New York State, so 14 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.
