Golden amber color. Spicy, minty aromas and flavors of pine needles, Turkish delight, saffron, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and wintergreen with a lightly tannic, crisp, fruity medium body and a warming, nuanced, long caramelized soft fruits, juniper marinade, cigar wrapper, and waxy oak finish. A rich and full barrel aged gin that hits all the right notes.

Serve in a Shot Glass
Barrel-aged gin has become a trendy spirit produced by numerous artisan distillers in America. Actually they are bringing this tradition back as barrel-aged gin has been made on the Spanish island of Menorca for more than two hundred years, with white oak barrels being the preferred vessel.

The current barrel-aged gins made in America have a brown color, derived from the bourbon barrels in which it is matured. This technique gives these gins aromas of vanilla and caramel.

These gins are served either over ice or serve as the base of cocktails such as an Old Fashioned or Manhattan.
