Wölffer Estate "Pink" Gin
Wölffer Estate // New York, USA
Roman Roth, winemaker at Wölffer Estate in the Hamptons, has created this "Pink" Gin by using the estate's own rosé wine as the base. It is distilled with six botanicals including cardamom, coriander, fresh mint, and juniper -- the latter two ingredients also grown on the estate. The pink hue is obtained by adding red grape skin extract to the distillate prior to bottling.
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.
