Theory Gin 004 is another in Old Trestle's series of barrel rested gins. This gin is aged in a Chardonnay barrel and then blended with ginger root and turmeric to give it a golden hue. The ginger and turmeric are noticeable right away with an earthy spice to the nose. The palate is balanced and bold, hitting you with the spice of the ginger and a hint of turmeric that blends well with the other botanicals without getting lost. Alone this gin finishes strong with a bit of a kick from the ginger. Balanced well in a cocktail with some sweetness, this one is a standout. Bottled at 45% abv.
