Brooklyn gin (not to be confused with Breuckelen gin – but that’s another legal battle) is made by Joe Santos, an ex-Bacardi marketer who grew up in New Jersey. He makes his gin with 11 botanicals, 5 of them fresh citrus peels, at Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery in Warwick, New York State.
The 11 botanicals: Juniper, lavender, cocoa nibs, coriander, orris root, angelica root, Eureka lemon, Persian lime, Key lime, Navel orange and kumquat.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/02/2016


Crystal clear.


Pungent zesty citrus – particularly lime, with Indian curry spice notes and faint lavender. Juniper is fairly subdued. Water amplifies citrus zestiness.


Orange zest leads with black pepper spice, fresh celery, mild piney juniper and cereal-like, faintly nutty notes.


Piney juniper, black pepper spiced finish.


A very clean citrus zesty and spicy American gin with moderate juniper influence.
