Tasting Notes

"Barrel-aging gin is certainly a style that has gained a following and it seems that distilleries are in no rush to stop bringing them to market. Unfortunately there are a dearth of barreled gins that lose their juniper complexity in the name of oaky vanillin and residual whiskey flavors. Eden Mill’s take on the style features a deft touch of oak from it’s relatively brief sojourn in barrel of only a couple of weeks. The light golden spirit features juniper prominently with a touch of creamy malt and dried citrus. Perhaps not oaky enough for some, but a very balanced gin that pleases on its own and shows a subtle complexity."
