Deep and rich flavor profile, pure & botanical finish. Bristow Reserve spends 1 year in new 53 gallon American oak barrels, char #3. The use of larger oak barrels allows for the gin’s juniper intensity to mellow out, while also adding notes of caramel and some hints of spice. The aging also allows for the aromatics of the botanicals to integrate into the gin. We believe that at 113 proof this gin is very approachable. Allowing for plenty of flavors from the oak, but not disrespecting the original Bristow flavors.
