Single Barrel Release #2 - Woodcut Barrel Rested Gin

750ml 90 Proof/45% ABV

Our second special, single barrel release is here! What does a gin distilled with kaffir lime leaves, nutmeg, lemongrass, galangal, and sage do when it ages in a bourbon/amaretto cask for 3 years? Now is your one and only chance to find out! 

Back in 2019, when picking up our regular bourbon barrels for producing Woodcut, we were offered a barrel that had seen 2+ years on bourbon, then an amaretto from Sons of Vancouver in BC, then bourbon again for 2Bar spirits in Seattle. We happily siphoned off 30 gallons of distillate from Volume 2 of our Co-Authored Gin production which was in process at the time, and tucked it away.

Now, 3 years later, it's drinking perfectly. Like our last release, when we say 'single barrel' we mean it, there will only be about 150 bottles available and then it's gone for good.

Tasting Notes: Aromas of eucalyptus, cocoa nibs, vanilla, and american oak. Lychee fruit, honey, and a lifting burst of pink peppercorn carry the first sip until settling down into a harmonious mixture of stone fruit, nutmeg, and toasted orange peel. 

This is being released at the perfect time, an amazingly complex gin worthy of simply sipping and contemplating. A great gift for the gin and whiskey connoisseur alike, you might find it takes a glass or two to really unpack all of the different elements at play. 

Only available in the tasting room, while it lasts.

Award Winning

We source our barrels locally, days after they have been emptied ensuring maximum flavor. Once we are finished they are passed along to local breweries, continuing the path of local flavor development. What to do with a barrel finished gin?

When used in a Negroni the words 'umami' have been uttered more than a few times, and stirring up an Old Fashioned becomes not so old fashioned anymore.
