Featured Cocktail — Official Cocktail of Tales of the Cocktail 2017


DE LA TERRE Made in Dordrecht, Netherlands for more than 140 years, Rutte’s gins and genevers today are the result of seven generations of Rutte fathers meticulously teaching their sons the art of distillation, always with a passion for craft. They still hand-make their gins and genevers in the same tiny back-room where the founder, Simon Rutte, concocted his first spirits back in 1872. Pictured here with the a food pairing of summer crab, peaches, cracked corn nuts from two time winner of the James Beard Award David Rosengarten.

Recipe 2 ounces Rutte Old Simon Genever 1 ounce Dolin Dry Vermouth de Chambéry 1⁄4 ounce Yellow Chartreuse 3 dashes Bitter Truth Celery Bitters Combine the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir to chill. Strain into a chilled coupe. Enjoy. No garnish. The drink blooms while stirred and is pleasantly aromatic.
