Death's Door Gin
This product is currently sold out.
We're so used to seeing Gins that pack in 8, 15 or even 20 botanicals these days that it was refreshing to find out that Death's Door Gin has a surprisingly simple botanical mix of juniper berries, coriander and fennel. Using juniper berries that grow wild on Washington Island in the middle of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin State, with coriander and fennel sourced from within the state, Death's Door Spirits who make this Gin, is able to showcase how complementary and complex simple expressions can be. Death's Door Gin has a full London Dry flavor without all of the bitterness because of their extraction process and the base spirit they use (i.e., their vodka). In fact, you can taste all three botanicals: loaded juniper berries up front; spicy, citrusy notes from the coriander seeds in the mid-palate; and a soft, cooling finish provided by the fennel seeds. Death's Door Gin is big enough to stand up to classic or vintage cocktail treatment, but soft enough to be enjoyed on the rocks or with Tonic. But our favourite for this gin is in a dry martini made with our Antica Formula Vermouth. They are like soul mates!
