I can't share all the details yet about what I'm going to unveil over the next few days, but I'm going to put this out there right now: if you live on the SF Peninsula and you like gin, please keep the night of Friday June 3rd open. As you may or may not know, we'll be helping to launch Four Pillars gin over the next ten days, the citrus-oriented Australian gin that is sweeping the current spirits awards season, and we'll have the founder Stuart Gregor in the San Francisco store that evening for a freein-store public tasting. Once that tasting ends, however, I'll be whisking Stuart down to a currently-secret location on the Peninsula where we are planning a full-out gin and tonic rager that should last until the late hours of the evening. I'm finalizing the details today, but plan on an announcement of time, details, and location soon.
In the meantime, prepare yourself for the Four Pillars firestorm. Their gins are incredible, affordable, interesting, versatile, and absolutely mouthwatering. On June 3rd (or before if you buy a bottle in the store) you won't have to take my word for it. however. You can meet Stuart, shake his hand, taste his gin, and watch your knees buckle.
