This oaked gin starts life as Bainbridge Heritage Organic Doug Fir Gin, but undergoes a unique infusion process, resting on hard-toasted virgin American oak chips for at least 2 months. Unlike barrel-aged gins whose flavor characteristics can be muddled by the residuals of the barrel's former contents, the use of virgin toasted oak ads a warming hint of tannin and ads dimension and detail to the flavor of the freshly-cut Douglas fir boughs used to make this spirit.

“Golden straw color. Spicy, interesting aromas and flavors of egg nog, spiced meringue and fig-fennel pastry with a silky, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, involved, long anise cookie, juniper, and lemon chutney finish. A delicious, spicy, flavor-packed barrel aged gin with lots of interesting cocktail possibilities.”
