Excerpt: Super interesting profile but I really like it. I’m sad this is now hard to find given them going out of business but I think it’s pretty awesome. I'll be curious to see if the buyers of their remaining stock produce it again or not.
Excerpt: The list of botanicals in Death's Door Gin is pared back to only three: juniper, coriander, and fennel. They manage to construct a surprisingly complex gin from so few raw materials. The fragrance is soft and slightly floral, while the juniper on the palate is balanced by the licorice-like notes of fennel that soften the spirit.
Excerpt: For sure, you can taste its trio of botanical components quite clearly — modest juniper, a dusky citrus coriander, and a licorice whip of fennel on the back end. After that simple beginning, a surprising conclusion awaits. Pie crust notes linger on the finish, along with notes of graham crackers, mint, and tobacco, adding complexity to a spirit where one wouldn’t expect to find it.
