And another thing that might happen to you while you’re on a desert road trip; you might go into the Food 4 Less supermarket in Yucca Valley and see a bottle of Primrose London Dry Gin, and you might think to yourself, well there’s a lovely curiosity, a whiff of old England blowing in across the sand and mesquite. 

And you might buy a bottle and in due course build yourself a drink, and only then might you look more closely at the label on the bottle and see that Primrose London Dry Gin is “Bottled by the Clear Springs Distilling Company, Louisville, Kentucky.”  There’s no reference to where the stuff is made.  London?  Conceivably, though why not say so?  Louisville?  Perhaps.  But who really knows?  China? Bangladesh? Mexico?  Globalization, she’s a tough mistress.  Primrose London Dry Gin tastes just fine however.
