City Amber Gin
HOW COULD WE MAKE A GIN THAT SHINES IN COMPLEX DRINKS? By reviving a lost, time-intensive technique that retains maximum flavor...and color. Taste the original: this gin captures the complex, sippable flavors and natural amber color from the techniques used during the Renaissance...when gin was born and distilled only once. We updated the ingredients for a modern take. Try it neat or spruce up your Negroni and Gin Fizz.

REVIEW “Though golden orange in the glass, this is not a barrel-aged gin; rather, it’s infused with botanicals (as most gins are), but hasn’t had the color distilled out. It’s sweet and soft on the palette, and the different constituents sing out clearly; juniper, anise and clove are backed by a wave of honey and allspice, plus a surprising dark-fruit note in the back of the palate and a light floral on the exit.” Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast
