1900s – The Great Riches Of The West
Herbaceous / Laid-Back / Historic
This drink deserves a lot of respect and perhaps… speculation. As the story goes – the Martinez was born out of a variation on the Manhattan. This magical event took place nearing the end of the 1800s in Martinez, California (hence the name). On top of all that, the world famous Martini was then derived from the Martinez – talk about a famous family! Instead of using the sweeter genever or drier London style gin – we meet in the middle and use a classic Old Tom gin.
