Coit Caravan Gin is a unique, innovative spirit that captures the rich notes of Lapsang Souchong tea. This smoky, distinctive gin is perfect for those who appreciate complex flavors and aromas. Caravan Tea is dried over burning pine needles, imparting a smoky note that perfectly complements the botanicals in this gin. Cardamom and long pepper add further complexity, rounding out the flavor profile nicely. Whether enjoyed neat or in cocktails, Coit Caravan Gin is sure to impress!
Long-time vintners, lovers of spirits and enamored by gin, we began this journey to capture the essence of each ingredient to craft…spirits with spirit!
Using foragers and wildcrafters, we find our herbs at peak maturity. The ratio of each ingredient affects the synergy of the final aromas and flavors. A botanical mix that looks good on paper may not succeed, and only taste will tell. Wine generously allows you three to four weeks during the fermentation to get it right, while gin only gives you eight hours to bring out the individual character of the botanicals.
Our amazing journey has brought us to crafting spirits… We felt perfectly prepared for the challenge, after harvesting and bottling 48 vintages of wine in three countries.
botanicals are Indian Longpepper, Angelica, Lavender, Cardamom and (fixative) botanicals to stabilize the Black Tea
