Gins

The word “gin” derives from “genever,” the Dutch word for juniper and the original style of what we know today as gin. Gin is created by redistilling a neutral white spirit with herbs and botanicals, which must include juniper. Usually, the botanicals are added directly into the “mash” that is then distilled. Sometimes, however, as is the case with some of the most expensive gins in the world, the botanicals are hung in packs within the column still. As each level of distillation occurs, more and more flavors and aromas are added to the finished product.

Featured Spirits - Gins

Hendrick's gin is a staple in the gin world. You can find this stuff everywhere. This unique gin tastes spicy at first, and then has an obvious citrus flavor. The juniper is actually subdued by the citrus and so is much less apparent in the flavor than it is in the aroma. Hendrick’s unique addition of cucumber makes this a very cool and very clean gin. The rose addition helps to soften the nose and flavor a bit. All of this has the effect of taking what is otherwise a "London Dry" style gin and creating something truly extraordinary. It is one of our go-to gins, especially for martinis and summer cocktails. Try it in a Tom Collins with a slice of cucumber, or a gin and rosewater tonic!

Aroma: Fresh – probably due to the cucumber and rose. Juniper very present.
Taste: Hot & spicy with a pleasant citrus flavor, mostly lime. Juniper is rather subdued in taste.
Finish: Long finish with an aftertaste of citrus. Leaves your mouth dry.

Our friend Jay introduced us to this gin and we fell in love with it right away. The first thing you’ll notice with this gin is that the aroma is very floral with only a suggestion of juniper. The taste is spicy with a hint of citrus and licorice that lingers through the aftertaste. It is somewhat hot on the tongue and has a thin mouthfeel, but finishes smooth - very smooth. There is also a spice flavor that we were unable to identify. It finishes dry and long.

The softness of the flavor of this gin might get lost in robust cocktails with flavorful mixers. To us, this is more of a gin & tonic kind of gin. Or perhaps a martini ... mmmm ... yeah, a martini. With no vermouth, but an absinthe snap.

Aroma: Floral with a hint of juniper
Taste: Primarily licorice and citrus and another unidentified spice.
Finish: Long, pleasant aftertaste and dry.
