New Riff Bourbon Barreled Kentucky Wild Gin (750ml) (Previously $35)

SKU #1426432

According to the producer: "New Riff Distilling’s Kentucky Wild Gin Bourbon Barreled is thoughtfully crafted with local wild foraged Kentucky botanicals, capturing the native flavors of the Ohio Valley and reflecting historical Kentucky gin ingredients. Twelve botanicals are distilled right in the pot, including a range of typical European gin ingredients (such as angelica, orris and licorice root, and three kinds of citrus). To these we add two local, hand foraged wild seasonings, including a wild juniper berry and the amazing American Spicebush—both of which are on the Slow Food Ark of Taste—plus a dash of Kentucky’s state flower, goldenrod. At the last, we blend in a bit of our new make rye whiskey spirit, enriching the texture and lengthening the flavor. The gin then rests in dripping fresh New Riff Bourbon barrels for five to seven months, achieving a mellowing note of vanilla oak."

A decent barrel-aged gin is a rare thing. An excellent one is like a unicorn - you're pretty sure it exists, but you've never seen one. I was flabbergasted by New Riff's barrel-aged gin. I've gone back to that bottle over and over again this year, nursing it down to the end until I could replenish my stocks once our for-sale product actually arrived. The color is extremely light, but the gin has spent a shocking 5-7 months in as-fresh-as-they-get bourbon barrels. Aside from the mellowing and melding of flavors achieved by the time barrel, there is a haunting, subtle sweetness and complex vanilla oak profile imparted to the gin. It's like a very dry version of Old Tom Gin. While it's great on its own, it's the perfect ingredient for a modern version of the Martinez cocktail.
