Released in 2013, this gin was created with the help of historian and all-around spirits guru, David Wondrich. He found a recipe dating back to 1809 which confirmed his suspicions of American colonials using rye to produce Dutch-style gin. The gin is made from New York Distilling Co's unaged rye whiskey which uses New York state grains. It is distilled a third time in a pot-still after some juniper berries and Cluster hops are added to the still. It is aged for 3 months in oak to round out the spirit.

Tasting Notes

"What you'll find on the nose is raw wood and a floral aroma which combined with the wood is somewhat cedar like. The gin is on the thin side and is spice-forward. The wood aging comes through on the palate and gives a bitter quality to the gin. The finish is dry and hops forward. Try this in a Negroni."
