On the way home after tasting the new gin formulations at GrandTen Distilling in South Boston two Tuesdays ago, I made a pit stop on the Red Line at Park Street Station. After a short delay, I was able to find a seat at the No. 9 Park bar where bartenders Tyler Wang and Brendan Mercure were presiding. For a first drink, I asked Tyler for the Storm Chaser off of the new menu.
