Gin and juniper go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly, but who wants to be smacked in the face with a Christmas tree? Black Button Gin has subtle hints of juniper with an orange zest overtone that brings a fresh new twist to this old classic. Whether it’s in a Tom Collins, Gin & Tonic, or Gimlet, Black Button Gin will have you pondering just what else Gin can do. It’s a Gin that both experienced Gin drinkers and newcomers can enjoy.
NOSE: A rarity in gin these days, the Citrus Forward Gin is made with local hops, which add a nice complexity to the nose without bitterness in the actual taste.
PALATE: A beautiful strong fresh start, some great savory notes in the middle.
FINISH: A long lingering citrus finish towards the end.
