Tasting Notes

"Barrel-aged gin is often seen as a marriage between two spirits: gin and whiskey. The marriage isn't always a happy one, but in this case, thankfully, it is. On the first sip a note of sweet vanilla from the barrel comes through, followed by complementary flavors of juniper and orange. A lingering spice rises nicely on the finish. This is one gin that would be enjoyable served simply on the rocks, but it will also serve well in spirit-forward cocktails like the classic Martinez."
