To be more clear… we’re talking about the new booze and booze events at LloydMartin.
Chef Sam’s call for this spring is… gin! We’re testing and trying a bunch of different gins lately, and some of the good ones include the Terroir, Botanivore, and Dry Rye Gins from St. George Spirits. This distiller has real imagination and creativity in their gins. We’re also enjoying gin from Fords Spirit & Spice and Bols Genever, as well as Hayman’s Old Tom Gin and the Hedge Trimmer Gin from Sun Liquor (a local, Seattle-based distillery!). ‘Tis the season for gin at LloydMartin, and we know you’ll like our choices once the tasting and tipsiness is complete.
Whiskey will always have a special place on the shelves behind the bar here at LloydMartin, and a recent addition of 10-year single malt from Bunnahabhain on the Isle of Islay won’t disappoint. Two other newbies include Ledaig and Tobermory single malt scotches from the Isle of Mull. Single malt connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike will love these whiskies.
We still have a good amount of The Boss Hog straight rye whiskey from WhistlePig, so you’ll want to try that while it lasts.
Keep your ear to the ground for a whiskey, scotch and bourbon tasting event we’ll be holding in March. The whole idea will be to showcase some excellent scotch, bourbon and whiskey alongside complimenting food, and experience how they interact.
In other news…
I know we said we’d be talking about booze, but these other events are coming soon (and of course, booze will be present). LloydMartin will be doing our own St. Patrick’s celebration in March, with Chef Sam Crannell’s special version of corned beef and cabbage. And on April Fool’s Day, you’ll get to enjoy a very special menu and pop-up restaurant called ‘Chicharron’, featuring Mexican cuisine. You can bet that our new choice in tequila from Tequila Corazón de Agave Expresiones, the Añejo Old Rip Van Winkle, will be featured!
You will also notice that spring is beginning to show! Early spring produce will also begin to show on the menu, such as onions, stinging nettle, and more.
