At the James Beard Awards, the folks at Plymouth Gin were kind enough to stock the press room with some super bartenders and a slew of gin-based cocktails, like this weirdly—yet wonderfully— vegetal Celery Stalker, created by Kirk Estopinal of Cure in New Orleans.

Plymouth is a slightly fruity, full-bodied gin made in Plymouth, England. Fun fact: the distillery is on the site of a 16th century Dominican Friary where Miles Standish and his fellow Pilgrims spent the night before they set sail for America.
