Caledonia Spirits Barr Hill Gin 750ml

Todd Hardie began his career in beekeeping almost 50 years ago in Hardwick, Vermont, in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom. This part of the state is an agricultural hotbed focused on honey, milk, cheese, grains, and herbs with a strong focus on community and respect for the earth. With family distilling roots going back to the 1800s (John and William Hardie of Edinburgh started distilling whiskey in 1857, and the company still produces whiskey today), it’s no wonder that the current generation of Hardies began crafting artisanal spirits in this corner of the world. The Barr Hill Gin contains one notable ingredient that truly sets this spirit apart: raw honey. The raw honey is added just before bottling giving it a uniquely wild, floral nose that changes with each batch as the season dictates where the bees collect their pollen and propolis. It is a touch sweet and the juniper is well-integrated which makes this a unique crossover spirit for those unfamiliar with gin and a new frontier for those already initiated. Tim Gagnon

Catskill Provisions Beespoke Gin 750mL

Created by beekeeper-turned-distiller, Claire Marin, the Beespoke gin highlights local grapes from the Finger Lakes (a blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Gruner Veltliner)  bee-friendly botanicals, and a bit of  honey provided by their apiary. The grape base gives this gin a richer, creamier mouthfeel and despite the faintly sweet aroma, the gin remains dry on the palate as there is nothing added post-distillation. Michelle DeWyngaert

Cotswolds Dry Gin

A recent arrival to the US market! Named for the rural area outside of London in where the distillery is located, Cotswolds Gin went into production in 2014. Nine botanicals undergo 18-hour maceration in a base distillate of wheat and these include juniper, coriander, bay, fresh citrus peel, and black pepper, among others. It is beautifully aromatic – juniper heavy, with cool overtones of balsam, mint, rosemary, cucumber, and lime – but maintains a classic, dry profile on the palate with added lift seemingly from the fresh citrus peel. Green herbs and black pepper creep in on the finish. Very balanced and long, this makes a killer Martini, and it is also un-chillfiltered so it clouds up when cold! Tim Gagnon

Greenhook Ginsmiths American Dry Gin 750ml

This bottle represents the Gin obsession of Brooklyn native Steven DeAngelo. His distillery is located in the once industrial, now artisanal, north-Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint. Here he uses a still with vacuum technology that allows distillation to occur at a lower temperature. This cooler process results in a gin with surprisingly fresh aromatics and a very bright green coriander note. These flavors are very well expressed in a gin and tonic, but also work well with other herbal spirits like Amaro. John Rankin

Hayman's London Dry Gin 750ml

Hayman's is the oldest gin-distilling family in London.They were founded by James Burrough in 1863. Sticking true to their roots using a 150 year old family recipe that has not changed, but stood the test of time creating a classic gin. With the use of three small copper pot stills and 24 hour maceration of 10 herbs and botanicals (juniper, lemon, orange, cassia cinnamon, Ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg, angelica root, orris root, coriander seed and licorice root) they create a citrus forward gin while still maintaining the high proof and spicy mid-palate of a classic dry gin. On the nose you get fresh citrus peel aromas with juniper and coriander. On the palate you get orange zest with fresh lemon rind, coriander, slight liquorice with a long dry juniper finish.

Letherbee Distillers Vernal Gin 2021

Letherbee is a tiny, DIY distillery in Chicago refusing to play by the rules of the corporate world by controlling their operation from start to finish. We look forward to their unique seasonal gin releases every year! For this year's 'Vernal' bottling they focused on grapefruit, using 170lbs of fresh grapefruit peel in the maceration in addition to their traditional additions of juniper, coriander, cardamom and other herbs. We love how vibrant and citrus-forward this gin is for gin and tonics/soda, but it also makes a killer negroni! Michelle DeWyngaert

Progressive Hebridean Distillers (Bruichladdich) The Botanist Islay Dry Gin 750ml

Perhaps better known for their single malt Scotch whisky, the Bruichladdich Distillery also creates this expressive and somewhat atypical gin in their small corner of Islay. Master Distiller Jim McEwen works with his old Lomond pot still lovingly known as “Ugly Betty” and a recipe comprised of 9 classic gin ingredients (juniper, coriander seed, orris root, cassia bark, etc.) as well as 22 locally foraged botanicals giving this gin a unique and compelling character. The nose is powerful with luscious aromas of grapefruit peel, green apple, mint, wildflower honey, tropical fruit, anise, and coriander. On the palate it is rich and silky smooth with herbal and citrus notes that carry through onto the finish. This is a truly distinct spirit, and would do well in many interpretations of classic cocktails or sipped neat. Tim Gagnon

West Cork Distillery Garish Island Gin 750 ml

Garnish Island located off the southwest coast of Ireland is renowned for its gardens. Inspired by the lush gardens of her home isle, master distiller, Deirde Bohane, Ireland’s only female Master Gin distiller at West Cord Distillery uses 12 local herbs and botanicals to create a lovely Irish Gin. She uses a small custom-designed copper pot still, distilling in small slow batches. This gin is non-chill-filtered and bottled at 47% to retain all the natural flavors and oils of botanicals and it may cloud when chilled or mixed.  A unique gin that is intensely aromatic with aromas of juniper, rose petal, rosemary and thyme, and on the palate is juniper, orange zest, rosemary and thyme with a finish of dark chocolate and strawberries. Enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or in any of your favorite gin cocktails. Nelson Dejesus
