Caledonia Spirits & Winery Barr Hill Gin
|Region||United States, Vermont|

Barr Hill Gin is our ode to the hardworking bees of the Northeast. Each batch is distilled in our custom-built botanical extraction still. The juniper-forward botanicals are brought to a perfect balance by the floral depth of the raw honey. The results are distinctive and unparalleled. How do we extract such complexity from simple raw materials? Our secrets are kept in the hive.
The producer describes this gin made from raw honey as "dancing the line between an Old Tom and a London Dry style." We'd say it edges closer to Old-Tom gins, thanks to its surprising sweetness and understated juniper. Look for notes of candied lemon peel, vanilla, white pepper, and a whisper of spicy cinnamon. A touch viscous, it's unusually mouth coating for a gin.
