The first time that I had this drink was at Sepia. My interest was piqued since it used Yellow Chartreuse. Oddly enough it was mixed with vodka: North Shore's Sol vodka. I had my doubts, but surprisingly it was amazing and shattered my perception towards Vodka. For a summer time drink, this pretty much removed the Corpse Reviver #2 from my number one spot. Much to my chagrin, I was under the impression that it used a spirit that was in a limited edition run from North Shore Distillery. I thought this because when I returned to Sepia and asked for it again they informed me that they don't sell it anymore. With my heart broken, I returned to the comfort of a Corpse Reviver.
My relationship with gin was fine until my visit to North Shore's Distillery only to see that they still do make Sol vodka. The bottle winked at me, I started to blush and returned back to Victorian Lace forgetting that Sepia took her away from me.
With that said, I present to you Victorian Lace. Introduced to me then snatched away from me by Sepia in Chicago.... to be reunited by the folks at North Shore Distillery once again.
