Dutch Fir Trade

Dutch Fir Trade

  • 1.0 oz. Bothy Gunshot spiced gin
  • 1.0 oz. oude genever
  • 0.5 oz. Boudier Saffron gin
  • 0.25 oz. Douglas fir brandy
  • dash of Fee’s Plum bitters

Stir with ice and strain into coupe.

I wasn’t sure exactly what to do with the spiced gin. It almost seems like a spiced rum if your eyes were closed. This was a long experiment to hone in on this combination, which gives an interesting and piney spiced genever. Plum? No idea, but it worked.

I was happy when the name came to me, and it seemed pretty perfect. And no animals were harmed in the making of this drink.
