What to Drink
An After Wok drink for all
A Lebanese gin inspired by bootleggers, brought to life to win awards and lend itself to splendid cocktails.
If you are a Potterhead, you might remember the tale of three brothers. The story doesn’t have anything to do with what comes next, except the uniting factor of three brothers. For those who are spirits aficionados, there’s a gin made by The Three Brothers who have dedicated their lives to mixology and nightlife.
Their gin, the Three Brothers Bathtub Gin has put Lebanon on the map of award-winning spirits-producing countries. At its heart, the gin was inspired by tales of bootleggers and was revived by mischievous bartenders.
The Three Brothers Bathtub Gin is the result of Lebanese ingredients being brought together using an American production technique. Handcrafted in small batches, the Three Brothers Bathtub Gin came to life after years of trial and error, as The Three Brothers tried to find the perfect blend of Lebanese ingredients. 21 botanicals come together to create this silver medal-winning gin from the 2021 Bartender Spirits Awards.
Juniper berries, carob fruit, jujube fruit, olive leaves, coriander seeds, rose petals, cedars leaves, pine barks, hawthorn leaves, pistachio, grapefruit peel, lavender, grapefruits, red apples, and cinnamon have all been meticulously chosen to get the drinkers to experience Lebanese taste and aromas.
The Three Brothers Bathtub Gin is a soft and silky gin with a zest of citrus and a warm, spicy gin. The full-bodied and crispy gin and its long finish make it compatible with a range of flavor profiles, making it a great base for cocktails.
