“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.”
– J.R.R. Tolkien

Packed with antioxidants, magnesium, potassium, and fiber, the beetroot is known as one of the most healthy and hearty vegetables in the world. First domesticated for consumption over 2000 years ago by the Romans, the beet has been used for cooking and alcohol since around 900 AD. In fact, beets were featured in De re Coquinaria (On the Subject of Cooking), one of the first known cookbooks ever written. Beets are one of very few vegetables strong enough to grow in the cold, and strong enough to survive tough European winters.

Our By the Frost cocktail combines the earthy flavors of beetroot with the herbaceousness of Hendrick’s Gin. Blended carefully with two delicate Italian liquors, this concoction is both intriguing and familiar. With the holidays near, may our “roots” help us navigate the cold and darkness of winter.
