Plymouth Pink Gin ~ A cocktail that's literally straight from the source: water fresh out of the picturesque reservoir that supplies the Plymouth distillery, bitters, and Plymouth gin!
After spending some time in London and being introduced to the Beefeater staff and facilities we boarded a train and made the trip out west to Plymouth. Both the city of Plymouth and Plymouth Gin have such rich histories that it was truly a pleasure to learn more about them. This Western port on England's Southern shore served as the home of the first royal navy, the embarkation point for the pilgrims on the Mayflower, and the home of one of the country's oldest gin distilleries. My favorite part of the experience though was not the city, despite it being lovely and looking like an older version of New England, but the trip up to the reservoir that has supplied the city and distillery with water for hundreds of years.
