Cold River Traditional Gin
Cold River // Maine, USA
Cold River Traditional Gin is produced by Maine Distilleries, who pride themselves in sustainable farming and production methods for their farm-to-glass spirits. The potatoes used are sourced from Green Thumb Farms, owned by one of the founding partners of the distillery. The gin begins as their vodka, potato-based and triple-distilled in a copper pot still. It's flavored via steeping prior to distillation with 7 traditional botanicals: juniper, coriander, lemon peel, orange peel, cardamom, angelica root, and orris root. Finally, it's bottled at 47% ABV.
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.
