• Audrey Sanders, owner of the Pegu Club, one of New York City's leading cocktail spots, speaking at her workshop on "Gin, the Other White Meat" on the attributes of gin vs. vodka:
"Everyone is pooh-pooing vodka, but it’s not a bad spirit. It’s a great distillate. It pairs really well with caviar. Vodka enhances and fortifies flavors, but it doesn’t bring anything new to the table. It doesn’t offer any dimension to your drinks. ... I look at gin as a liquid spice rack.”
