Tasting Notes

Handcrafted, hand-bottled, hand-labeled, and hand-numbered, this small batch gin is truly unique. First, it is an American gin. Master Distiller Todd Leopold handcrafts every batch in a small 40-gallon copper still, blending uniquely American botanicals like hand-zested Florida oranges and California pummelos. These components lend citrus notes to the gin, and help distinguish this American gin from its English counterparts. Second, all the botanicals are distilled in fractions, meaning that each component of is distilled separately and then blended to create the finished spirit. Unlike mass-produced gins where the flavors are muddled or can be overpowering, fractional distillation allows each individual note to be highlighted, resulting in a softer, more refined, and more approachable spirit. Finally, each gin is crafted in small batches, rather than in a continuous still. Thus while there is marked consistency from batch to batch, each has its own unique signature - much like fine wine. Each handcrafted batch is unique, yielding only fifty cases of an exceptionally complex yet subtle spirit which both those new to American Gin and the connoisseur will appreciate.

    Damn, this is pretty! So very pretty-pretty! Juniper shares the stage with a prominent sweet citrus oil component and a delicately floral dimension in the nose. While the Leopold’s would have to be counted amongst new-styled American gins, I think it is really in a category all its own. Why? Take a sip. Yes; just of the gin straight, at room temperature. This is gentler, softer, suppler, and more delicate than any gin I’ve heretofore had occasion to taste. Now, I wouldn’t necessarily advise this for use in every cocktail recipe out there. For people who want that indomitable juniper character shining through in a drink despite citrus juices, liqueurs, bitters, absinthe, whatever you might throw at a gin in the course of making a cocktail, well, this probably isn’t that spirit. In more gin-centric drinks, this is beautiful, fresh, gracefully perfumed... and well worth a try!
