The Woodcut printing technique dates back centuries and involves carving wood to then imprint images or text onto something else. Hand selected used whiskey barrels are our wood of choice, influencing our award winning Navy Strength gin over a 5-6 month period of cohabitation. What comes out of the barrel is a refined spirit; rich and complex with a smooth botanical finish.
We source our barrels locally and 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.

“To taste, the vanillin heavy sweet tones of the oak have added a dimension to the citrus upfront, but haven’t diminished the overall botanical brightness. There’s palpable oak ageing for sure, but not too much and this allows the gin to emerge enriched rather than battle worn. The caramelised citrus finish lingers long after the sip and it’s an expression that many fans of the genre would enjoy.”
