FEW American Gin - 70cl - 40% ABV
Made in the town of Evanston, Illinois, an ironic name perhaps considering that this is also the same town that lays claim to being the birthplace to the Women’s Temperance Movement (an influential protagonist in the story of Prohibition). This is just one of the many things that will grab your attention. The gin is certainly different considering not only the liquid but also the distillery’s experiments and one-off bottlings too. It would be an understatement to say that this gin has our curiosity at fever pitch….
This is a vibrant citrus gin with a creamy, vanilla texture and a grainy, hoppy undertone. Juniper holds strong, keeping the gin balanced, while earthy botanicals and a spiced note anchor the gin, giving a peppery finish.
This is a special and unusual spirit, reminiscent of maltier genevers in taste and completely unique in mouthfeel. Recommended with ice and a top up of ginger ale.
