Dorothy Parker / Gin Rose Petal / 750mL
Dorothy Parker, Brooklyn Series Rose Petal Flavored Gin Limited Edition
"The New York Distilling Company has extended its Dorothy Parker gin range with the launch of a limited edition expression infused with rose petals and elderberries. Dorothy Parker Rose Petal Gin is made with pink and red rose petals and crushed elderberries – one of the key botanicals in the core gin.
Limited to 10,000 bottles, the expression also includes juniper berries, coriander, green cardamom pods, cinnamon bark, lemon peel, and orange peel.
The gin is said to have hints of elderberry and cherry, along with a “lively” aroma and flavor of floral rose that compliments “existing hibiscus notes and results in a sweet and creamy finish”.
The original Dorothy Parker Gin is named after the famous American writer of the same name.
“I have always been very cautious about considering a brand extension for our gin,” said New York Distilling Company’s co-founder, Allen Katz.
“The opportunity to tinker with the flavor and color of Dorothy Parker Gin had to be subtle but purposeful. I’m absolutely thrilled with the result and am enjoying gin & tonics with the new Rose Petal variation.”

Rose petals and elderberries lend a golden hue and pleasant, mildly floral aroma. The light, tingly palate leads with juniper and rosemary, leaning into a fleeting juicy orange note midpalate, finishing long with eucalyptus, mint and a faintly floral exhale. Limited edition..August/2020
The earliest distilleries in Brooklyn date back to the 1700’s. During Prohibition there were over 50,000 illicit stills in New York City. Since Prohibition however, the ethereal perfumes of distillation have been largely absent…until now. The New York Distilling Company builds on this dream by establishing one of the nation’s premiere craft distilleries.
