Beauty in simplicity

Roxor Gin - notice it is spelled the same forward and backwards - a good way to remember the name and a smart look

Combine great design-inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, a tasty beverage made in Texas, and a reason to host a party and I'm in! Roxor is a gin developed by well known chef and restaurateur, Robert Del Grande of RDG + Bar Annie and Don Short, former executive at Coca Cola, Minute Maid. Everyone knows Del Grande is the king of Texas chic cuisine but probably few people know he has a PHD in bio-chemistry. With 12 unique botanicals including Texas pecans, soft junipers, coriander, grapefruit and lime to name a few, you can see why it is called, "artisan gin." Add a pretty bottle to display on the bar and friends might begin to beckon for a Tom Collins or Sloe Gin Fizz. The Lone Star State may have just produced a new "old" love - and that of course, is swell!
