Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - This offers an aromatic tidal wave of citrus, juniper, coriander, and delicate dry earth notes. The palate is generous and slightly viscous with a fruity core and waves of fresh cut herbs in support. (Mar 2015)
The Brooklyn Distilling Company was established in 1895 for the purpose of manufacturing spirits from molasses and the waste products of the sugar industry, but was closed in the early 1900s and disappeared from the public eye. However, the company has recently been revived and is now producing Brooklyn Gin - their first product in over 100 years.
Produced at Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery, New York's first licensed distillery since Prohibition, Brooklyn Gin is distilled from grain and infused with hand-cracked juniper berries, freshly cut citrus peels and other locally sourced botanicals. Crisp, clean and balanced, Brooklyn offers bright fruit notes supported by a bold juniper backbone which lingers through the smooth, dry finish.
