Dry Fly Washington Dry Gin
Dry Fly // Washington, USA
Dry Fly Distilling sources the soft white winter wheat used for their vodka and gin from the family-owned Wisota Farm in Eastern Washington. Made in Spokane, their flagship gin includes botanicals grown locally: Washington Fuji apples, coriander, lavender, mint, hops, and juniper berries from Oregon. It is bottled at 40% 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.
"Dry Fly Gin is very much on the softer style of many modern gins, with a gentle aroma and an approachable palate. The floral note of lavender is present but doesn't take over, allowing juniper to take the lead. The unusual use of Fuji apples adds a pleasantly fruity note. It's a very well-balanced gin that's both complex and easy to drink."
