Imperial Barrel Aged GinMADE BY ROUNDHOUSE SPIRITS IN BOULDER, COLORADO
Some people have taken to calling this spirit "Ginskey" because it's sort of like a cross between gin and whiskey. We call it delicious, whether it's served on the rocks or mixed up into a cocktail.
It all starts with an infusion of green tea, lavender, hibiscus and chamomile, rounding out the classic additions of juniper and citrus. Next, it's aged for at least 10 months in oak barrels, mellowing out the botanicals and adding a nutty warmth and a hint of vanilla from the oak.
Barrel-aged gins are newly trendy, so this bottle makes a great gift for spirits enthusiasts.
