Precise nose of beeswax and juniper that becomes clove and chive, jasmine carnation and magnolia, candied lemon peel, ginger and dill. The palate is juniper berry leaping from the glass, juniper flower, bee pollen, orange blossom, lemon blossom, coriander, violets, lavender, peppercorn edge, celeriac root, and depth! This is thick fare, with heat and resonance. #barrhill #barrhillgin #caledoniaspirits #caledoniaspiritsbarrhillgin #gin #moderngin #vermont #vermontgin #juniper #rawhoney #craftgin — 20 days ago

Lavender, thyme, juniper summer creamsicle. Lovely with a bouquet of fragrant white lilies from the market.
I drank this straight and while it would do well in a cocktail or with club soda/tonic, I think this actually drinks straight pretty well and beats Roku, in my humble opinion, in that realm. Used to be my go-to. Uncle Val’s is still definitely my top-liner, though. Tough to beat. But hey the Minnesotans know what they’re doing on this one... — 2 months ago
Nice little concoction when you’re out of gin & tonic
Claimed to be the world's oldest distilled drink - Poitín is the father of Irish whiskey (AKA - moonshine as we'd call it in the USA). First made by Irish monks in the 6th century in monastaries like Glendalough it was known as Uisce beatha or aqua vitae in Latin - the water of life. Today Glendalough's Poitín is triple distilled in a traditional copper pot-still using malted barley and pure spring water. It has a slightly floral nose with pretty and heady fruit tones. The taste is shockingly smooth and mellow given the 55%. Again a surprisingly fruity essence. — 9 days ago
The most herbaceous gin out there. Makes the Botanist taste two dimensional. If you like that equation then look no further.... — 3 months ago
