Barreled aged gin started out as our 3rd in a series of experiments.
Well-received by both whiskey drinkers and gin drinker alike,
this bridges the gap between the two spirits.
The mash bill is 100% wheat from Kelman Farms, Sublette, KS.
We took our award-winning New Western style gin and filled it into used Red Eye Whiskey barrels near the end of their serviceable life. It rested for eight months and was immediately bottled after that time.
Our gin recipe was kept simple in the end with eight botanicals:
juniper, coriander, bitter orange peel, angelica root, orris root, licorice root, chamomile flower, and a hint of sarsaparilla root.
Nose: Heavy citrus notes, vanilla, candied orange peel, floral,
Neat: Vanilla and Orange come through immediately with
juniper taking a back seat with light tannins and wood notes.
Aging: Eight months in former BHD Red Eye Whiskey Barrels.
