    Also 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.

Tasting Notes

"A sweet, springy fragrance of lime and grapefruit zest, wildflowers, Italian parsley and mint bursts from the glass. The palate has a weighty viscosity similar to genever or Old Tom style gins. The florals are well integrated with the freshness of the juniper, with more citrus and minty wintergreen notes. In all, a nicely balanced gin that doesn't hide that it's still gin. "
