Seagram’s Extra Dry Gin has been continuously produced since 1939. For a long time, Seagram’s Gin was The American gin. Distilled stateside, to this very day— the spirit itself has undergone a lot of changes.
Once Seagram’s was more Ancient— aged for ninety days and bottled with a golden hue. Their Ancient Bottle Gin* was a big seller early in the company’s. Over the decades though Seagram’s became Extra dry and by the early 2000’s was merely “rested” in oak. In 2017, the words rested are gone though Seagram’s Extra Dry Gin retains a slight yellow tinge.
Region: Midwest Grain Products/MGP of Indiana, United States
Nose: Citrus on the nose with a bit of angelica mixed in with a dull, pine-forward juniper note. The orange seems to be the sweet on the nose with a peculiar candy like edge, as if a candied orange rind.
Palate: Juniper early, candied orange rinds come on strongly in the mids. Seagram’s Extra Dry Gin finishes with a good dose of heat and some spice notes. Sweetened Cinnamon Orange tea give it a kind of stewed cider like note.
Finish: Is predominantly a bit warm, with bitter pure ethanol receding on the edges of the palate and dwelling there.
