This recipe from Jordan Blackman at Odd Culture is one that employs a technique we’ve seen more often of late: a house vermouth blend.

For this particular riff on the Gibson, Jordan has taken equal parts of three vermouths and batched them together, to give a citrusy, flowery flavour profile to the vermouth. It’s pairs perfectly with the Hendrick’s Gin, which does the heavy lifting in this version, and the house made pickles the chefs at Odd Culture have designed just for this drink.
