Distilled from Wisconsin wheat and infused with juniper and locally grown chamomile, rosemary, lemongrass & lavendar, this Wollersheim gin release is an interesting addition to their portfolio of spirits. This is produced to be a botanically balanced style, with a contemporary dry profile. Let's dive in.
Bright, powerful, fruity and laced with grape and lavender. Effervescent, certainly unique, with plenty going on. Juniper takes a backseat to the fruit here.
Sweet, unmistakably fruity. Lots of sweetness, almost drinks like an eau de vie more than a gin. The juniper is hard to track down, if it can be found at all.
Long finish, rich with fruit character, juniper (right on cue) and tons of grape, pepper and lavender.
Wow - this is certainly wild and unique. I think I'd have to like grape a lot more than I do to fall in love with this bottling, but it's certainly well made with plenty of character. Works exceptionally well in citrus forward cocktails - and I'd avoid a martini if it crosses your mind.
