…from the Perspectives’ Happy Hour Bar
How you doin’? In celebration of women’s month we thought it might be a good idea to feature the alcohol beverage of a woman-owned distillery--Sipsong. Sipsong (you gotta love the name) is located in Northern California just an hour north of the San Francisco Bay in beautiful Sonoma County. Part of their creativity is that they are fortunate to be surrounded by all things rich in flavor, whether it be food meticulously prepared by some of the world’s finest chefs, or world class wineries.
Their founder, Tara Jasper, grew up in this flavor-topia. She spent the last 40 years traveling the world, yet has always found herself returning to this place of abundant epicurean aromas and flavors. She has been searching for ways to share Sonoma County bliss with the world and it seems that she’s done just that!
Following her heart has led her to create Sipsong. They are ‘Distilling The Moment—the moment when you taste something you never want to forget, whether it be a cocktail that found just the right balance or the perfect gin and tonic. They craft small batch spirits with a focus on gin intended for the refined palate in search of that moment of pure delight. Check out the gin that was awarded a double gold at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition with their Fight Like a Girl cocktail.

Yield: 1 strong cocktail
