The gin is infused with botanicals including juniper, coriander, orange peel, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. The nose is citrussy and juniper forward. Warm notes of waxy pine, gentle citrus and cardamom. Great viscosity, quite earthy.
This quintuple-distilled gin is so named due to it being the 209th distillery registered in the U.S. "...I rarely drink hard liquor, but I must say this was the smoothest gin I have ever had." Robert Parker
Creating an intriguing first impression, the nose offers crisp juniper berry, soft Gourdy cucumber and the slightest hint of rose petal. The following sip feels crisp up front and silky going down with refreshing notes of citrus, coriander and juniper that pleasantly evolve to a finish of cucumber, along with a wisp of rose petals.
The nose offers crisp black peppercorn and a hint of charred peppers greet the nose, while a bold pepper flavor and tingly, salty sensation make up the mouth feel. With a sip, the crisp, salty pepper evolves into a sour-sweet juniper taste and the pleasing bite of charred red peppers, all of which finished with the smooth, fading sense of peppercorn.
