Gin is in again! And what better time to celebrate the beauty of the botanicals than on World Gin Day at 47 Scott!

Travis Reese, Donald Gipson, Matt Russell, Tiffany Eldredge, and Rebecca Crane

Our celebrity co-host was soulstress of style and purveyor of spirituousness at Young’s Market Company Tiffany Eldredge, who walked us through some gin history alongside her cocktail comrade Rebecca Crane. We also sat down with 47 Scott bar manager Donald Gipson, who showcased the kinds of gin-anchored cocktails that were trending behind his downtown bar. We enjoyed sipping on a couple of examples that he shook up for us; the Basil Cucumber Gimlet and the Last Word. 47 Scott owner Travis Reese stopped by as well to share his own stories about gin while getting us current with some of his dishes that are making news this season.

Celebrating World Gin Day with a Basil Cucumber Gimlet!

The flavors of summer took center stage on our tasting, featuring some righteous crab cakes, a gorgeous heirloom tomato salad, a mustard-crusted salmon with beet puree, and a duck confit meatloaf with cheesy greens. So much fun at Tucson’s original downtown neighborhood bistro!
