Summer Splash Series Competition Showcases TUCK Gin

By July 31, 2023Rhode Island, Top News

Cocktail Wars Newport hosted its first Summer Splash cocktail competition of the summer at Surf Club, sponsored by TUCK Gin, on June 11. The competition challenged participating bartenders from Benjamin’s, Midtown Oyster Bar, Surf Club and Wally’s Wieners to create their best cocktails using TUCK Gin as the base spirit. TUCK Gin is a modern, American-style gin, where juniper is balanced with fresh grapefruit peel, jasmine flower and individually distilled botanicals. At 47% ABV/94 proof, TUCK is a higher-ABV gin, which allows it to hold more of the essential oils from each botanical to shine through in each sip. Founded in Weston, Connecticut, TUCK Gin takes its name from the Saugatuck River. The product line includes original TUCK Gin and TUCK Barrel Aged Gin, which is aged in French oak barrels previously used to age red wine. Wally’s Wieners’ Jimmy Oca and Jackie Martell took the win with their cocktail, TUCK Your Berries. TUCK Gin is distributed via Mancini Beverage – Rhode Island Distributing division.
