Pacific Distilleries "Voyager" gin is recommended for this drink.

A friend of mine recently opened a new distillery here in Washington State, where he makes both a gin, and an Absinthe. I decided to try to create a drink that used both of these ingredients which would be "highly approachable" to to people who might not typically care for either of these ingredients. The "Clipper Ship" was the result.
