Black Button Citrus Forward Gin
Black Button Distilling // New York, USA
For four generations Jason Barrett’s family made suit buttons. He broke tradition and decided to start a grain-to-glass distillery in Rochester, New York. The base of this gin is local wheat and the stand out ingredients in this gin are bitter orange peel, sweet orange peel, and New York State Cascade hops.
Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
"The components of this do not create something greater than themselves, but something of equal value. The neutral spirit does not hide but links arms with the aromas of crushed cinnamon and bitter lemon extract. The palate is a sampling of the traditional flavors, citrus peel, black peppercorns, and chewy licorice. While this gin is clear and distinct like a photograph, it doesn’t have the longevity of a good memory. Mix this into a Vesper."
