What Makes A Great Gin? We Asked Pasadena’s Most-Awarded Gin Maker

first_img Make a comment Do you know what makes Gin the great tasting spirit that it is? If you enjoy this drink, and never knew what gives it the flavor that you love so much, we have some enlightenment for you.Gin has been a seriously underrated drink, until now. Millennials have made Gin one of the most popular spirits today, having discovered it is the life force behind many great cocktails. But do you have any idea how Gin is produced?Stark Spirits Micro-Distillery in Pasadena is an award-winning local micro-distillery acknowledged nationally and internationally for its great-tasting spirit beverages. Greg Stark is the Stark Spirits master distiller for most of their spirits, but Karen is the Gin Maker at Stark Spirits. She gave us an insider’s peek into the Gin-making process, and how creative it is. There is a lot of work to making a truly great and award-winning Gin like Stark’s Skyline Gin, but it’s worth the time and effort.As you may well know, Gin is a botanical drink distilled from a neutral grain spirit base, meaning it starts as odorless, tasteless, and colorless, no hint of its original ingredient. It can have as little as four on up to 26 different herbs, spices, berries—the botanicals! Gin always has to have juniper, but then the other botanicals can be things like orange peel, cinnamon, star anise to more exotic items like squash blossoms. Gin is a drink of wide and varying creativity.Stark’s Skyline Gin begins with traditional ingredients, but the result surprises as a Gin that goes its own way.“The nose is citrusy to me, the flavor profile well-balanced for tart and sweet, lemon-honey-spicy, gently warms the palate and finishes dry with lingering notes of tart and sweet,” says Karen, who developed the recipe for the great Gin coming out of Stark Spirits distillery.What she has found amazing is the wealth of impressions from the visitors that come for tastings at the distillery. Individual elements in her recipe stand out so uniquely for different palates.Karen also was amazed at how many people have told her “I really don’t like Gin, but this is delicious” or some other word of praise. She didn’t know how to take this sort of spontaneous critique: was it a good thing or a bad thing to make a Gin that appeals to people who don’t like Gin? However, she was relieved to find that serious Gin drinkers praise Skyline enthusiastically as well as novices.There are two common methods of making Gin. One is called maceration, and the other is called vapor infused distillation. Macerated Gins’ botanicals sit in the still right in the neutral spirit, and all the botanicals infuse the Gin at once. Stark Spirits Distillery uses a vapor infused distillation method, one favored by many well-known commercial brands. The botanicals are placed in a basket at the top of the still, and the boiled spirit vaporizes through the basket, condensing to the aromatic, flavorful liquid called Gin. Karen favors this method because she can distill very slowly, giving the more delicate botanicals sufficient time to express their aromas and flavors in the Gin.Of course, each different Gin has its own special recipe, usually a guarded secret, with specific botanical volume ratios. The challenge facing small distillers such as Stark Distillery is to ensure that the botanicals used will create the same flavor profile each and every time. It’s a hard task and one that requires expertise and concentration and luck! That’s because the botanicals obtained from a supplier can derive from different regions where the environment provides subtle or not so subtle differences in flavor profile. But Karen points out that anything handcrafted means slight variations are to be expected!So the next time you order a Skyline martini or a Gin and tonic, hold your glass up and remember all of the work that went into it at Stark Spirits Distillery.Stark Distillery is located at 1260 Lincoln Ave #1100, in Pasadena.

Aleksandar Mitrovic told not to hold back in derby game

first_img The Newcastle striker has belatedly announced himself on Tyneside with two goals in as many games, including a sumptuous left-foot volley in Sunday’s 6-2 Barclays Premier League thumping of Norwich, after initially falling foul of officialdom during his first few weeks in English football. Mitrovic, a £13million summer signing from Anderlecht, has reined himself in since collecting two yellow cards and one red in his first five games for the club, much to manager Steve McClaren’s delight, but he wants the 21-year-old Serbia international to push the line in Sunday’s derby trip to Sunderland. Press Association Aleksandar Mitrovic has been told to “play close to the edge” as he gets his first taste of the Wear-Tyne derby. center_img McClaren said: “There is always a fine dividing line, always fine. He has played smart. I would say he has been playing smart, and that is what we have been telling him, be smart. That’s what he has done. “Smart and effective. You can play smart and be ineffective, but play on the line and play smart. “He got sent off against Arsenal and could have been against Southampton, and they were not derbies, but that was a willingness to win and playing on the edge, on that line. “That’s what you have got to do in every game, not just say, ‘Oh, we will choose a derby game and do it now’. We need that every game. “He has shown a level of maturity in the last three games. But again, we are not getting carried away and saying, ‘Woah!’. “We knew there was a bit of the devil [in him], to be perfectly honest, and that has added to our game. We need that, but we need control and that is the key on Sunday.” Mitrovic is rapidly establishing himself as a cult hero at St James’ Park after a shaky start, but McClaren is keen to keep his feet firmly on the ground despite the ovation he received last weekend. He said: “There’s a long way to go. It was nice, but we won’t get carried away by that. The team this week has certainly not got carried away by anything.” last_img read more

Companies target college students in sales

first_imgSometimes, USC’s campus can look like a billboard for large companies. Most recently, Nissan LEAF shirts were prevalent across campus after Nissan launched a promotional campaign on Trousdale Parkway.But the company says it and others like it are targeting students for their expansive social networks — which ultimately help companies pad their bottom lines.Big business · Nissan representatives tell a student about the new LEAF. Nissan teamed with a Marshall group to come to campus. – Dieuwertje Kast | Daily Trojan“They are reaching a sweet spot of their target audience, which is 18- to 22-year-olds,” said Ira Kalb, professor of marketing. “That group also talks a lot on social networking. You get this accelerator effect where [students] all start this word- of mouth pyramid through Facebook and other social networking avenues.”But appearing on USC’s campus is not an easy task. To do so, the company must have the sponsorship of a student organization, a university department or USG’s Program Board, according to Heather Larabee, director of campus affairs.The marketing endeavor must also be tied to a special event, such as Conquest. Final approval rests with Campus Activities and the Scheduling Office.Nissan, which was recently on campus to promote the Nissan LEAF — its unreleased zero-emissions car — collaborated with the USC student group Marshall Net Impact, which focuses on ethically responsible business practices. The stop at USC was part of Nissan’s tour focusing on environmental impact. A quarter of the tour’s stops were at university campuses, part of its efforts to pursue a more socially active audience, according to Tim Gallagher, manager of west coast communications.“We know universities are really a bed of social media,” Gallagher said. “When we talk to students it’s kind of like we’re talking to 10 times as many people because they have the ability to socially outreach through electronic means via Twitter or Facebook.Gallagher said the promotional events are not about actually selling the product, but about getting the message out.“We just wanted people to know about the topic, people to know about the products that were coming and to start the dialogue, she said. “Of course we’re going to benefit from showing the car and having the Nissan logo there, but it really sincerely was more about the dialogue.”But companies are not the only ones benefiting from marketing on campus, Kalb said. Advertisers can also help give students interested in marketing an up-close look at how companies promote and market.“The way USC is set up is that students who do well and are successful, after they graduate they give money back to the school,” Kalb said. “Anything that helps students or vendors helps the school. It all works together.”Larabee said letting companies advertise on campus is relatively common at universities. Still, students had mixed reactions. Some said they liked having access to these large companies, but others said the aggressive marketing can be annoying.Austen Courter, a sophomore majoring in vocal performance, said she thinks big brand efforts such as Roxy Clothing, a retail brand that has advertised on campus, are great for students who don’t have cars, because the companies make the products accessible. But she said there are times when it can be too much.“It’s kind of annoying, because I hate having people harass me,” Courter said. “But I guess it’s good for marketing students to learn marketing techniques.”Daren Flam, a sophomore majoring in communication, prefers the public relations-oriented company promotions, such as the recent AT&T tent, as opposed to the sellers along Trousdale.“That’s the way it should be, as long as they aren’t hawking anything,” Flam said. “I’m here to learn, not be heckled by vendors. They should wait for me to approach them.”last_img read more
