Drink of the Week: Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin

Italian distiller Luxardo has been making iconic spirits and liqueurs for almost 200 years, and the newest release brings two family staples together in one bottle. The sour cherry gin—a blend of their London Dry-style gin (not currently available in the U.S.) and proprietary Marasca cherry juice made from fruit grown on the family’s orchards in Veneto—balances the bright juniper qualities of a strong London Dry with the sweet fruit notes of Marasca cherry juice, finishing in a long, lingering thread of bone-dry tannin. Try it in a Martinez, Negroni, or a cherry G&T. $32.50, bittersandbottles.com
