This “gin-head style American gin” (that’s how the producer labels it), is made using a 50 gallon copper pot still which has a “vapour basket” which holds the botanicals suspended above the liquid, infusing the vapours as they travel up the head of the still.

Orange and lemon marmalade citrus with lemongrass, lavender, camphor, sage, nutty balsawood and freshly cut celery.
Piney juniper is very present in a very the fresh floral palate with almond nuttiness, lemongrass, lemon verbena and celery.
Hop-like/celery continues, heavily influencing the pine and white pepper finish. Full flavoured and slightly brash but with very attractive celery notes which I think come from generous use of angelica seeds.
