What the brewers say

“Aged in Vermont honey gin barrels with fresh lime zest.”

What our panel thought

“Spicy cinnamon or allspice with juniper, wood, and moderate floral and perfumy notes. Bergamot orange esters. Spicy, sweet, and warming flavor with lingering cedar and dried figs or cherries. Strong gin botanical flavors.”

What our editors thought

“A bit of herbal spice with a juniper and berry tannin backbone. In the sip, pepper, floral, and light berry notes swirl in an intriguing blend.”
