Spring44 // Colorado, USA
Spring44 is positioned as a premium American distillery set to compete with the imported gins and vodkas viewed as the market standards. By taking advantage of organic botanicals and the natural Colorado mountain spring located 10,000 feet above sea level, they hope to create high quality and a price that beats the overseas brands. A fairly traditional botanical blend of juniper, coriander, and nutmeg is joined by a touch of certified organic agave nectar.
Distilled GinThis style of gin takes a neutral spirit and then adds juniper berries and other natural flavorings before it is re-distilled. After distillation, additional flavors (artificial or natural) and sweeteners may be added.
"This gin shows a wonderful medley of scents of wild mountain flowers and crisp citrus peel with a back current of evergreen juniper. The agave nectar adds a bit of mouthfeel and texture to the gin’s mid palate for a rich, dense spirit with a long, easy-drinking finish. This is an interesting midway point between European tradition and American ingenuity. An easy choice for a gin and tonic or other refreshing long drinks."
