Watershed Distillery Bourbon-Barrel Gin
Watershed // Ohio, USA
This gin is the result of Watershed Distillery taking their Four Peels Gin -- made with juniper and seven other botanicals -- and aging the spirit in used bourbon barrels.
Barrel-Aged GinGin which spends some time in barrels, generally not more than a few months at a time, although there is no legal definition for this style.
"Time spent in a used bourbon barrel gives Watershed Distillery's Barrel Gin a light golden hue. A distinct note of oak comes through on the aroma. The juniper in the gin is supported by strong notes of citrus peel and vanilla from the wood. The oak influence isn't too strong or too sweet; it comes together like bruléed grapefruit. It's a very nice gin and a strong addition to the barrel-aged gin category."
