In completing Revivalist Gin’s seasonal range, we have Solstice. Like all of their gins, fermentation occurs in custom Douglas Fir wash backs and the spirit finishes in custom CARL copper pot/column still hybrids. To combat cold winter nights ginger and anise are used and more uncommonly there is an infusion of dried cherry. Before release the spirit gets a stay in oak barrels that previously held red wine.

Tasting Notes

"The color is a bit of a mysterious rust hue, but unfortunately that is not the only misstep in this wintertime gin. The tones of spicy ginger and sweet-cherry butt heads with the toasty oak and other botanicals to create a pileup of non-congruent flavors. Perhaps simply a case of too much of a good thing, but ultimately a spirit without focus. A shame because the rest of the Revivalist lineup is quite good and inventive."
