Coppers Barrel Gin is a unique gin, transformed by time. This gin is a barrel-finished version of our popular Coppers American Style Gin. The crisp flavors of the hand-picked wild juniper berries, citrus peel and coriander are transformed by time spent in charred American oak bourbon barrels to ultimately give this gin an inviting amber tone and a wonderfully smooth finish. Years of barrel aging in our Vermont climate mellows the gin to a whiskey-like spirit, with only a slight nose of juniper, and mid-palate warmth from notes of cinnamon, vanilla and cardamom. Excellent neat or over a few cubes of ice, or create a new expression of a classic gin or whiskey cocktail. A must-have for gin collectors and whiskey-lovers alike. Coppers Barrel Gin is a new expression of a classic spirit.

Copper color, aged gin. Dry wood aromas hit the nose first, followed by hints of cinnamon and vanilla. The barrel flavor carries through the mid-palate, with notes of cardamom and coriander early on. A vibrant, medium body with compelling notes of vanilla and peppery, caramelized pineapple, followed by mellow juniper and mint for an incredibly smooth finish, and a light floral aftertaste. Drink neat or in a classic bourbon, gin or rum cocktail.
