Anchor "Junipero" Gin (750ml)

SKU #650016 91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The 20th anniversary of this robust spirit, the first craft gin distilled in the U.S. after Prohibition was in 2016. The aroma mingles juniper and citrus; the palate also shows plenty of lemon curd sweetness and peppery spice (cubeb, grains of paradise, pink peppercorn), finishing spicy with white peppercorn and coriander seed. (KN) Inner quote mark (8/2017)

K&L Notes

Anchor Distillery crafts this classically styled in in a small copper pot still in a small distillery on Potrero Hill. The predominant flavor of this gin is, not surprisingly, juniper, with supporting notes of citrus and savory herbs. The resulting spirit is crisp, clean, and suitable for gin cocktails of all stripes.

Junipero has become the iconic gin of both craft distillation and California. That stark understated label does not prepare you for the bold bouquet of aromas in the glass. Bright and crystal clear, the flavors are extremely well delineated as well. I love this with tonic, but when I want a martini that’s going to make me stand up, this is usually what I reach for.

Fritz Maytag of Anchor Brewing fame is a hero of mine. Everything he is involved with, from Anchor Steam beer (my personal desert island beer) to his exceptional York Creek wines and his Protero distillations, are among the best in the world. I always blame my English heritage for my strong attraction to gin, but this all-American creation is certainly one of my favorites. While very light in body, this is strong stuff at nearly 100 proof, and has a huge amount of very clean juniper flavor. I love it with ice, lime and tonic, but it is also a fantastic martini gin.
