Firkin Gin

Hey friends! Today I’m trying this gin that apparently put me on the bottle! (Or maybe that’s my cousin…)

This gin is rested in American Oak, so it has a bit of heft to it. It smells like juniper, smoke, ash, and wood. When you take a sip, you’ll taste oak, juniper, honey, almond, and wood notes. 

I liked using this as whiskey light – in a whiskey highball for example – or just on its own. Give it a try!

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Beautiful pinkish color on this Burgundy sparkler. Meyer lemon, pastries, butter cookies, croissant, brioche crust, and orange blossom on the nose. Lemons, oranges, apricots, and honey on the palate with a limey finish. Nice acidity and minerality. Thankful.
