Temple Distilling The Co-Authored Series Volume I
The Co-Authored Series // Washington, USA
This is the first in a series of bartender collaborations expected with Temple Distilling. Bartender Jacob Lichty (pen name James Wolf) earned this honor by winning a bartending competition the brand was hosting. The gin itself has a Japanese theme as Lichty heads a small bar at an izakaya in Seattle. The seven gin botanicals are as follows: juniper, shiso leaf, sweet orange peel, fennel, ume flower tea, caraway, and cubeb berry. Signatures of both Wolf and head distiller AJ Temple are located on the back of the label with the number 7 between the two as both a symbol of good luck and the number of botanicals used. Only available in 2018 in limited supply.
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.
