Gin with a Greek Accent – Wine & Spirits Magazine

Gin with a Greek Accent


With savory notes of wild sage and bay leaf, and the cooling feel of mastiha, Stray Dog o­ffers a distinctly Greek—and refreshing—take on a London Dry–style gin. It’s a new release from Dimitris Melissanidis, whose family has run a distillery in far northern Greece since 1924. Try it on the rocks with a splash of soda, or in a Martini garnished with a sage leaf. A portion of the sales of Stray Dog are donated to animal shelters in Greece.
