Pocket-Sized, Yet Powerful
33 Gins is a gin-tasting journal that provides an easy way to quickly record your tasting notes in a small, convenient notebook format. It's thinner than an iPhone and easily fits in a back pocket.
Perfect for Purists, Made for Mixers
33 Jiggers of Gin is the perfect gift for gin aficionados, geeks, nerds and other fans of the rectifier's art. But it's also for mixologists.
It's been said that the only people who taste gin on its own are its makers. I find that gin is great on its own* but gin does make a fantastic cocktail, and there are many.
From the O.G. Martini, to its ancestor the Martinez, all the way to today's super-Instagrammable Negroni, gin is the foundation of some great drinks. This journal lets you indicate how you consumed a particular gin with easy checkboxes for some of the most common gin-based cocktails (nine of which are featured in my Essential Gin Cocktails print).
A Genuine Gin Tradition
My gin journal inspired me to create a historical reenactment of sorts, The Original Drinking Flag. It comes with a copy of 33 Gins and will help you signal for happy hour, and makes a great gift for the gin geek in your life.
Designed for Speed and Style
It’s tough to hold a notepad in one hand, a pencil in the other, and have another hand left for your genever. Taking notes with 33 Gins is as simple as checking a few boxes and entering a few basic facts.
The flavor wheel in 33 Gins can be used to quickly recall a spirit's unique flavor long after consumption. For low values of the flavor, fill in dots near the wheel’s center.
The cover is printed with a distinctive metallic green ink, and includes a secret ingredient: a teeny, tiny amount of real gin is added to the ink in each new edition, which is cryptically noted on the back.
33 Gins is made with 100% recycled papers sourced in the Pacific Northwest. Interior pages are 100% post-consumer recycled content and covers are 85% post-consumer recycled content and 15% recycled content. The booklets are printed using US-grown soy-based inks in sunny Portland, Oregon.
