Since the 10th century, distillates of juniper infused wine were produced by monks, and brandy was made from this infusion and stored in oak barrels. Our barrel aged gin begins with a brandy base. We distill the brandy from Northern California grape wines. The herbal structure complements the grape base, and post-distillation it is then matured in new toasted French oak barrels for a minimum of 8 months. The 8 month old barrel is then blended with a small amount of younger barrels in a semi-solera style blending method which adds depth. The result is a sublime cross between brandy and gin, with complex, yet balanced notes of Juniper, Vanilla, Lemon Verbena, and other hand-picked herbs.
