Ginvitational Day 15! Distilled at Limestone Branch Distillery using 17 botanicals, this New American style gin is pretty interesting. One notable facet of this is that Bowling & Burch uses a lot of botanicals sourced from on their property, though they do not disclose which ones. Let's get to it.
Sweet cream, peppercorns, juniper, orange peel and papaya. Rich sweetness that goes so well with the pepper. Faint prick of ethanol.
Rich palate though with some heat. Sweet juniper, anise, orange peel, pepper and rising bread. Really prominent lemon curd note. Complex.
Short and a bit chemical but also loaded with a really fun blueberry note that pairs well with pepper, lots of juniper and some bay leaf.
Without being too sweet this is delightfully fruity, reigned in by a strong juniper character. I like it a lot, and if not for a little wrinkle here or there, this would likely reach beyond a 7, which is already great. Awesome stuff here.
