Gin can be a funny alcohol, often with a heavy taste and strong flavor. Let's just say, cheap gin is not for the faint of heart, but Uncle Val's has the power to erase any preconceived feelings you might have with gin. Smooth, herbal, and hand crafted, Uncle Val's is the best gin on the market. Maybe we're biased because of its Sonoman roots, but we're standing by our word.
Uncle Val's comes in three different varieties: Botanical, Peppered, and Restorative, each offering slightly different flavor notes, but all delicious. The botanical gin has hints of lavender and sage, with notes of lemon which makes it perfect for a boozy lemonade!
Starbucks may have brought back the pumpkin spice latte, but it's still summertime-hot in Sonoma. This boozy blackberry lemonade is the perfect libation to enjoy this weekend! We used blackberry thyme syrup, but really, any fresh fruit syrup will suffice.
