Boot Hill Barreled Gin
What initially started as an experiment will soon join Boot Hill Distillery’s full line-up!
We took our award-winning New Western style gin and filled it into used Red Eye Whiskey barrels that were near the end of their serviceable life. It rested for eight months and was immediately bottled after that time.
Our gin recipe was kept simple in the end with eight botanicals: Juniper, coriander, bitter orange peel, angelica root, orris root, licorice root, chamomile flower, and a hint of sarsaparilla root giving a hint of sweet and earthiness on the finish.
The former whiskey barrels toned down the intensity of the juniper over time and brought forward many of the citrus notes, giving the nose and mid-pallet flavors of an orange creamsicle, vanilla, baking spice, and carmel.
Enjoy this expression of our gin neat or as you would your favorite whiskey or add depth to your favorite gin cocktails.
Nose: Heavy citrus notes, vanilla, candied orange peel, floral, light oak
Neat: Vanilla and Orange come through immediately with juniper taking a back seat with light tannins and wood notes.
