I am looking for cocktails that really do justice to Bluecoat's Barrel Aged Reserve gin. And while the Philly Flyer is an excellent drink to do with Bluecoat's London Dry style gin, you want to have less juice and richer spirits that play well with brown liquor in your Barrel Aged cocktail. Victor is one looked like it fit the bill. I made it with Courvoisier, which had the effect of making it extremely silky, but with two ounces of gin, there was plenty of flavor too.
  • 2 oz. gin (Bluecoat Barrel Aged used)
  • 1 oz. brandy (Courvoisier used)
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
