After your gin wins two gold medals in craft spirits competitions, what is the next step? For us, it was barrel-aging that same gin in second use American whiskey barrels. After months in the barrel, the gin picks up an attractive amber color and mellowed flavor with whiskey notes added to the gin. Interestingly, Federal law does not allow an ‘age statement’ on gin labels; they’ve begun enforcing this more vigorously recently. Therefore, we call this ‘aged’ version of our Euphrosine Gin #9 our ‘Barrel-Finished Reserve’ and make reference to ‘casking’ it in American oak whiskey barrels on the label.
