Medium gold color. Aromas and flavors of butterscotch, warm oatmeal cookie and baking spices, and vanilla honey with a round, lively, dryish medium-to-full body and a peppery, delightful, long finish displaying accents of caramel butter, dark cocoa infused honey candy, baking spices, and juniper and garden herbs. Really rich and tasty with big barrel flavors and spices with just a bit of peppery heat and juniper lingering on the finish.

Barrel Aged Gin

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.
