Brooklyn Gin – Small Batch (43%)


Contrary to name, Brooklyn Gin is not distilled in Brooklyn, but a bit more upstate at the Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery.But this point is purely academic and worth getting out of the way at the outset.

Among the earlier “craft gins,” Brooklyn Gin has been on the market since 2010. Its base spirit is entirely corn and distilled on a relatively small copper pot still. Founders Emil Jättne and Joe Santos designed a gin to showcase the vibrancy of fresh citrus peel—in fact many kinds of citrus—and the spirit of independent and small.

Region: New York, United States

Nose: Fresh from the bottle, there’s a vibrant surge of citrus. The attention to this category of botanicals is evident: lime, Mineola orange and other sweet orange notes. Juniper, lavender, cardamom and coriander notes as well. Quite complex with a lot of facets; however, the citrus is the star.

Palate: Continues to showcase the vibrancy of citrus. At first sip, a hint of pine dressed juniper berry, sweet orange and lemon zest; it evolves turning into a bit more sour citrus as the spice notes come through. Lime and white grapefruit pith, with cardamom and chai notes occupying some background white space. The finish has residual juniper shimmer with green echoes of lavender.

Finish: Brooklyn Gin is smooth and easy to drink with a medium mouthfeel and a medium length finish.
