Behind the Design Guide to Gin
Hendrick's is a small-batch gin distilled in Ayrshire, Scotland. To promote the brand and increase its reach, Quaker City Mercantile continued its work with the distillery by designing a second volume for the Hendrick's Gin Field Guide series.
The full-color, case-bound book features 146 hand-drawn pages of information about the unusual gin, which is flavored with a blend of juniper, coriander, citrus peel, cucumber, and rose petals.
"The tome's design calls to mind a more innocent time when afternoon laze-abouts and a teatime cocktail or three often led to an impromtu unicycle ride or a competitive croquet match amongst the chaps,"quips copywriter Bradley Hilton.
On a more serious note, he explains that the biggest challenge of the project was collecting all the interesting bar customs from around the world and finding "delightfully peculiar" cocktail recipes to feature the unique spirit.

If you’ve been keeping up with our restaurant reviews, you may have read my recent article on Spoon. http://www.pittsburghhotplate.com/2010/09/spoon-pittsburgh/ Spoon is an eclectic restaurant in East Liberty with carefully prepared, delicious food. Brian Pekarcik, the Executive Chef and owner of Spoon, recently opened up another eating establishment next to Spoon. The new restaurant, Brgr, can be described as a contemporary burger joint, with a heavy dose of sophistication. Brgr, located at 134 South Highland Avenue, enjoys a prime location in the east section of town that has recently experienced a rejuvenation of sorts. New businesses have been popping up in this section of the city, attracting a diverse and loyal clientele.
