Tasting Notes

"Navy-strength gins are best approached with caution. At 114.3 proof, the more subtle flavors present in Green Hat's gin can get lost in the heat, leaving juniper to dominate. This is a spirit made for mixing, however, and that strength is a virtue in, say, a Martini, where dilution with ice and vermouth brings out its spice and citrus notes. Though likely not a gin for everyday mixing, it can shine in the right application -- and it's a good one to have on hand for days when a higher proof gin is called for."
