This oaked gin starts life as Bainbridge Heritage Organic Doug Fir Gin, but undergoes a unique infusion process, resting on hard-toasted virgin American oak chips for at least 2 months.Gin
Bainbridge Organic Distillers was founded as a family business in 2009, and since the beginning we perform every task in the making of distilled spirits on site, and with our own hands. From the selection of grain varieties and lots, to grinding, mashing, fermenting and distillation we are hands-on at every stage in the small-batch spirits production process.
Bainbridge Organic Distillers was Washington State's first distillery producing USDA Certified Organic spirits, and we are the state's only distillery producing 100% of its organic spirits from scratch, on site in our own distillery. We are very proud to have launched the state's first organic vodkas, whiskey and gin. We favor working with other local, family-owned companies, and we strive to make sure that every step in our process is as environmentally neutral as possible and is sustainably and responsibly managed.
We founded this distillery with the belief that being small is an advantage, and with a dedication to complete transparency in our process, our ingredients and our business practices. We are proud to be independent, and independently minded. We are dedicated to the rule that if we can't do something the right way, and if we wouldn't be happy sharing what we do with fellow enthusiasts, we won't do it at all.
GOLD MEDAL WINNER, 93 POINTS BTI's INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF SPIRITS 93 POINTS “EXCELLENT“, ULTIMATE SPIRITS CHALLENGE 2017
“Golden straw color. Spicy, interesting aromas and flavors of egg nog, spiced meringue and fig-fennel pastry with a silky, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, involved, long anise cookie, juniper, and lemon chutney finish. A delicious, spicy, flavor-packed barrel aged gin with lots of interesting cocktail possibilities.”
Unlike barrel-aged gins whose flavor characteristics can be muddled by the residuals of the barrel's former contents, the use of virgin toasted oak ads a warming hint of tannin and ads dimension and detail to the flavor of the freshly-cut Douglas fir boughs used to make this spirit.
