GDP, “Gross Domestic Product,” is the best way to measure a country’s economy.

The GDP cocktail is named after the combination of three key ingredients, Genever, Drambuie and Peychaud’s Bitters. Like the Dutch Golden Age, the spirit of this Genever is based on the Islay Cask finish. GDP is inspired by one of the classics, “Rusty Nail,” but it’s not too sweet for any respectable Martini & Manhattan Aficionado.
