Tasting Notes

Caledonia Spirits has a commitment to producing products that showcase their incredible reliance on and relationship to the land. These are truly agricultural products that use the highest quality locally grown inputs. This wonderful Old Tom—style gin is aged for 3-4 months in new charred oak barrels. They use the standard gin techniques to integrate honey perfectly into their spirit, and the result is a bit more sweetness and all those wonderful charred oak flavors. It's truly a special spirit. Unfortunately, the numbskulls at the TTB have decided that this doesn't qualify as gin — despite the fact that several barrel-aged gins are already labeled as such — so it doesn't actually say gin on the label. It is, however, gin and I've encouraged the producer to resubmit until they find someone who is not a complete Neanderthal to approve that wording. Regardless of what you call it, this wonderful Old Tom GIN is a special treat to say the least.

    Caledonia Spirits had me hooked the moment I opened a sample of the outrageous honey they use to make their gin. This veritable nectar of the gods could literally make anything delicious. Now take an ultra high quality gin, age it in good quality oak, and add just enough honey to feel it, but not enough make it particularly sweet and you've got one of the most dangerous concoctions on the market. Aromatically unique, encompassing a huge variety of complex flavors, Barr Hill has created one of the most successful barrel aged gin I've yet come across. Sip it straight or in the place of whiskey in certain spirit driven cocktails.
