Letherbee Autumnal 2020 Gin
The Letherbee Autumnal Gin 2020 is a straight up barrel-aged gin. They've picked their favorite barrels and layered them into a blend. No sugar, caramel, or any other sweeteners or colors are added. It’s bone dry and sits in a balance of being uplifting yet grounded, ethereal yet solid, aromatic and earthy. All casks used are 53 gallon American Oak, brand new, first fill, meaning they’ve never had any other liquid in them. Veering away from the preferences of whiskey producers, they use barrels that are lightly toasted on the inside - a distinction from the more aggressive charred insides of barrels typically used for aging Bourbon. This bestows a gentler, more delicate, and more nuanced oak impression that preserves space for the gin’s botanicals to carry on singing their aromatic harmonies.
