To create the mango gin each mango was hand peeled, pitted and sliced before being placed in a 155 proof version of the North Shore Distillery's No. 11 gin. After several weeks, the fruit was then removed and the liquid was pressed out with a small grape press. Each bottle contains a little bit of fruit pulp. Because gin is more flavorful than vodka, the overall taste includes not just fruit but also a touch of spiciness from the botanicals used in the gin. The distillery recommends it be served on the rocks or with a splash of soda and muddled strawberries. With just 256 bottles made, this one is a really limited edition and only found in the Chicago area.
