Excerpt: This is a very citrus-forward gin with prevailing notes of grapefruit, lime and orange held up by coriander, cardamom and grassy cucumber, which seems like it's in a fight to the teeth with the juniper, but the does end in a clean finish. Fans of Hendrick's would enjoy this one as an alternative.
Excerpt: Super unique, wild and out there, but not for me. Reminds me of a bizarre, sub-par Tepeztate with watermelon rind. The honeysuckle refuses to be ignored. This is a little too Spinal Tap of Gin for me.
Excerpt: All that being said, I quite like Conniption American Dry Gin. It has a unique perspective that sets it apart from other gins, and the concept is well executed in that it highlights some of the best part of each of the botanicals.

Durham Distillery Conniption Gin is an interesting by product of innovation and labwork. This American Dry Gin is produced using a two step process, first a distilling with standard infusion and a second vacuum distillation to add cucumber, citrus and honeysuckle. I can't say I've experienced something liket his before, so I'm looking forward to diving in. Let's get to it.
Clove, pepper, funky, bitter, garlicy. Tons of cucumber and floral vegetation.
Sweet on the palate, a total departure from the nose. Chili pepper, salt, honey, juniper, lime and jalapeno. Weird, to say the least.
Short, hot, really not my style. Pepper and hot with a really bready, bell pepper forward profile.
Super unique, wild and out there, but not for me. Reminds me of a bizarre, sub-par Tepeztate with watermelon rind. The honeysuckle refuses to be ignored. This is a little too Spinal Tap of Gin for me.
