Dry Town Gin
Dry Town // Colorado, USA
This distillery takes its name from the fact that Fort Collins, Colorado forbade alcohol until 1969. The gin features 10 botanicals, and perhaps most interestingly ginger and Colorado-grown sage. These herbs and fruits are infused through a combination of soaking and evaporation that lasts 18 hours.
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.
"The nose of this spirit bursts with candied ginger, cracked pepper, piney juniper, and earthy wild herbs. On the palate there is a rich impact--sage and orris root bitterness is brilliantly contrasted by a wash of intense, sweet mandarin citrus, toasted corn grain, and a touch of spice. A very well made gin with a silky mouthfeel which will serve brilliantly in stirred cocktails."
