While all gins must contain juniper, a distiller can add any other botanicals they want to craft their own unique flavor. Most distillers keep the recipe secret, but our neighbors at Breuckelen Distilling proudly revealed their secrets – lemon, rosemary, ginger and grapefruit.
Unlike many gins that are basically infused vodkas, Breuckelen's gin is distilled from wheat grown in upstate New York, so the base is really more like a white whiskey. In fact, they barrel-age the same wheat spirit to make their 77 Whiskey.
