The pink hue of this gin is owed to the maceration of unsweetened red fruits added to the botanical mixture that were inspired by flavors of the Mediterranean coast.

    Also 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.

Tasting Notes

"There is a juniper note, but it's moved more to the background, as the other balanced spicy and fruit notes come to the fore. Delicate aromas and flavors of orange blossom, fresh berries, warm spices and subtle sweetness makes this gin one of the few that would be easy to sip on the rocks with nothing added except maybe a splash of seltzer or club soda. This would also make an interesting summer Negroni variation with a lighter style of vermouth, or perhaps even subbing that for rosé wine. "
