Four Peel GinMADE BY WATERSHED DISTILLERY IN COLUMBUS, OHIO
You can probably guess from the name that citrus peels are the star of the show. Usually, all gins must contain juniper, with its dominant, piney bite. So a gin like Four Peel breaks with tradition, experimenting with bold, bright and vibrant flavor combinations.
Which four peels? Orange, grapefruit, lemon and lime! They nearly jump out of the glass, with the juniper and other spices just peeking out toward the finish. It’s a zesty twist (ahem) on an old fave.

The citrus kick makes it a fun spirit to play with in cocktails that don’t usually call for gin. Try it in place of tequila for a botanical margarita. Shake 1.5 oz Four Peel Gin with 1.5 oz orange liqueur and 1 oz lime juice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Did you know?
Gin can be infused with a wide variety of botanicals, but it MUST contain juniper berries, which are responsible for that distinct, piney, gin-y flavor.
