Barrel Aged Gin Batch 2 by Karu Distillery x Craft Works Distillery
Barrel Aged Gin
375ml 47% ABV 14 standard drinks
Our second release Karu x Craft Works Barrel Aged Gin has rested on oak for 6 months over winter, in between Capertee and The Devils Wilderness NSW.
A very aromatic gin tailored for the barrel, offering a complex dynamic of sweet and warm flavours amplified by the influence of the wood as if it were a botanical in the gin.
Applewood smoke-infused juniper with cardamom and clove offer a warm tone to this gin with suggestions of citrus. The very first sip introduces chocolate jaffa to the palate & fulfills that warmth of the nose.
Appearance – A light Sepia hue.
Nose – Warm spiced juniper & scorched orange tones, rich sweetness.
Palate – Chocolate Jaffa, delicate cardamom & Clove.
