Wilford Brimley

Empirical Dry Gin

The Wilford Brimley is a tart, earthy cocktail built with Empirical Navy Strength Gin, a beet shrub and allspice dram. In the world of drinking, shrubs, also known as drinking vinegar, are a Colonial American era beverage used to preserve fruits and some vegetables with vinegar and sugar. Shrubs are a thirst quenching and tart alternative to increase the acidity in a cocktail. The beet shrub used in the Wilford Brimley combines the earthiness of beets with tartness of apple cider vinegar.
