"History of Gin" Holiday Gift Set
Only 200 sets have been made, and they will only be available for purchase at the distillery starting the first week of December for $100.00. As one of our esteemed newsletter subscribers, you get the exclusive right to reserve a gift set before then if desired.
The four unique expressions contained in the gift set include:
• Volume I - Genever – truly the grandfather of modern-day gin, this spirit is characterized by rich malt notes and delicate hints of herbs. Made from malted grains, this spirit has been infused and distilled with classical herbs used by the best Dutch producers in the 1700's. This is the first genever we've ever released.
• Volume II – Old Tom Gin – often regarded as the bridge between Genever and classical London Dry Gin, this spirit is characterized by hints of sweetness and more delicate herbal notes. This spirit was distilled with juniper berries, along with selected fruits and flowers, and is unlike any other spirit we have made.
• Volume III – London Dry Gin – with the development of more advanced distilling technology in the mid 1800's, as well as changing consumer tastes, distillers in England created a more iconic style of gin characterized by a clean, pure base spirit, bright juniper notes, and accenting dry botanicals. Our Distiller's Gin No. 11 fits this mold perfectly.
• Volume IV – Modern Dry Gin – in the 21st century, distillers around the country have continued to innovate and evolve the definition of "gin" as a spirit category, incorporating new, fresh botanicals and unique flavor profiles. Our Distiller's Gin No. 6 was designed in this style, with the incorporation of lavender, fresh citrus and other spices.
Each gift set is housed in a handmade wood box, which has been custom-designed and built by G.H. Woodworking in Wauconda, IL. The distillery's founders worked closely with the team at G.H. Woodworking to design a beautiful, reusable box made entirely from locally reclaimed wood. Even the carrying straps are made from repurposed leather belts. Each set will also include a booklet outlining the history of gin, as expressed in these four styles, along with tasting notes. Because of the handmade nature of the boxes, each will have its own personality.
