Conncullin Irish Gin
Conncullin // Ireland
Pot-distilled at the Connacht Distillery in County Mayo, this gin uses juniper, hawthorn berry, elderberry, and other botanicals in its make up. Conncullin gets its name from the two lakes which are the source of the water used at the distillery: Lough Conn & Lough Cullin. Bottled at 94 proof.
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.
"This seems to have more precise flavors rather than a medley of subtle ones. The aroma focuses on juniper, other berry skins, and freshly-ground coriander. The palate is more bitter than the aroma might let on as anise and orris root play a large role. Though fret not, fresh juniper and elderberry tea are at the center of it all. Try this in a Negroni or a Corpse Reviver."
