The third release in our Cask Series, our Madeira Barrel-Aged Gin. Our signature London Dry gin is aged for a secret length of time in freshly dumped wine casks from the island of Madeira. These casks have previously aged medium-rich dessert wine, taking on the sweet & spicy characteristics of the fortified wines. The result is a truly complex sipping gin that also bodes well in a Martini or Negroni cocktail.
Each cask we lay down with gin is never the same & timing is crucial as to when it is ready. Too early and the flavour profile will be under developed. Too much time in the cask & the gin will be overpowered with tanins & bitterness from the oak. What goes in the cask at the start comes out at the end, we don’t dilute back. This is small batch craft gin production. 200 bottle release.
