Revivalist Gin Equinox Expression
Revivalist Botanical Gin // Pennsylvania, USA
The Revivalist gins are crafted at the Brandywine Branch Distillery in Pennsylvania not far from Philadelphia. Their four core gins represent a seasonal approach to gin making with the Equinox representing a springtime expression. The distillers employ some classic botanicals with a focus on citrus that are joined by more the uncommon botanicals of meadowsweet and hyssop. Fermentation occurs in custom Douglas Fir wash backs and distillation occurs in custom CARL pot/column hybrid stills.
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.
"This is truly a springtime-reminiscent gin with impressive aromas of wild meadow flowers and lemon hard-candy. The palate is refreshing and the echoing floral characteristics are well-balanced by bittersweet citrus-peel and tones of savory angelica and coriander. The finish has a hint of spice making the mouth water for another sip. A star in shaken citrus cocktails and a no-brainer gin & tonic spirit."
