The Shift


This book is a celebration of the creative talents of all the bartenders who inspire their communities and create moments for people to come together with family and friends for good times around a great cocktail. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we teamed up with 30 bartenders who created and shared their very own Gray Whale Gin cocktail recipes on our social media channels, a program we called the “Virtual Shift.” In this book, we’ve gathered all these stellar cocktail recipes, beautiful cocktail portraits, and mixology tips from the bartenders themselves. We hope you'll enjoy your journey through the book. You’ll find drinks for every occasion-martinis, batched cocktails, highballs, sours, and brilliant twists on gin classics, as well as some California wanderlust inspiration. 

To mark its publication, Gray Whale Gin is making a donation to the Restaurant Workers Community Foundation, an action and advocacy network for those in the industry. The donation is earmarked for financial relief and to provide vital social services to protect their physical and mental well-being.
