From the bartender’s corner – Aviation Baron

As I mentioned before, I was somewhat underwhelmed by the Aviation gin when I opened the bottle. I tried over the next few days one more time neat, once with tonic water and regrettably, came to the same conclusion – while the nose is more in line with what I would expect from an American style gin, the palette was flat and weak. In fact, after fifteen seconds or so, it was almost like I was holding water in my mouth. The finish was even weaker.

Either I got a bad bottle or this gin is best used in cocktails. I tried last night with a couple of liquers and ingredients that would hide the weakness of the gin. A Baron is made with gin, both styles of vermouth (dry and sweet) and triple sec.
