Chardonnay Barrel Gin
Our barrel-aged gins were inspired by an Old Tom style gin from America. There were flavours we had never seen in gin before – toasty oak, a softness on the palate and enough botanicals to be unmistakably gin.
We sipped it neat. We tried it in cocktails. And we wanted to make one of our own. So, we put some Rare Dry Gin into old Chardonnay barrels at the end of 2013. And our Barrel Aged Gin first released in 2014 has now become our eleventh release Chardonnay Barrel Gin.
The gin takes the front seat on this playful riff on a Hanky Panky. Minty fresh and a little sweet, the perfect mix for the cooler months.
