BIG GIN BOURBON BARRELED
Rested for six months in once-used bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill Distilleries, the gin retains the giant juniper notes while gaining tremendously warm, woody spice from the barrel— Master of Malt.
Juniper, coriander, bitter orange peel, grains of paradise, angelica, cassia, orris, cardamom, Tasmanian pepperberry.
Nose: Sappy pine, beeswax with a hint of marmalade, then a swirl of spice. Taste: A lovely interplay between the gin and the wood. There are elements of wood sap, beeswax and resinous juniper. This is followed by some more intense spiciness such as a complex green cardamom, which moves on to a more mellow spice with vanilla and a light cinnamon, as well as some hints of wood. This is a sterling example of good balance in the interaction of spirit and barrel.

About the Producer

After a combined 25 years in the bar & restaurant industry, husband/ wife team Holly Robinson & Ben Capdevielle set out to distill a line of gin designed for people who enjoy the taste of juniper, aptly named after his father’s nickname «Big Jim».
