Pairing: Sour Diesel 98 Flower & Ethereal Gin

A perfect pairing between the flower and a sprightly gin and club soda.

Sour Diesel 98 Flower from Smash Hits Cannabis & Ethereal Gin from Berkshire Mountain Distillers

It takes a lot to impress the more seasoned consumers with long memories stretching back to the halcyon days of the 1990s Cannabis scene. But with Greg “Chemdog” Krzanowski leading Smash Hits Cannabis to their first harvest of a supreme cut of Sour Diesel ‘98, those renowned times are back. 

Think: an abundance of classic Sour D x Pre 98 Bubba Kush aromas and flavors of earth, diesel, pungent sour lime with lemon peel, distant cinnamon and coffee. That also means the flavors of sour drops and citrus by way of sweet lemon and tart key lime, pungent fuel, and a smoke that exhales with coffee and earth is a stellar match for the latest batch of Ethereal Gin from Berkshire Mountain Distillers. 

The company uses private garden herbs and botanicals on site for each batch located down the road from the Smash Hits cultivation in the heart of the Berkshires. It makes for a perfect pairing between the flower and a sprightly gin and club soda (Worcester-based Polar or GTFO we say), presented with an apropos lemon/key lime twist. Also, new rule: All gin and Cannabis combos are to be referred to as “sprightly.”
