The gin maker’s newest offering, ‘Hendrick’s High Wheel’ is a stationary ‘penny farthing’ bicycle. (For readers who are not up-to-date on cycling history, the penny farthing was an early cycle popular in 1870’s; you might recognize them as those old school cycles with one giant wheel and one small one.) The Hendrick’s version is intended to be a throwback, low-tech response to the likes of the Peloton.

Michael McIlroy of NYC’s Milk & Honey helped usher in the Cocktail Renaissance with his Greenpoint, a variation of the Manhattan. So, it’s only fitting that his past coworker at M & H, and current partner at Attaboy, Sam Ross also created a Manhattan (technically a Brooklyn) riff honoring a BK neighborhood. The Amaro Montenegro brings a nice touch of bitterness to the familiar flavors of the rye.
