WE 93 | Wine Enthusiast Best of Year 2017
Named for the “first flower of spring,” the company describes the gin and its 18 botanicals as “an expression of this new life springing from the mountains and valleys of Vermont.”
The subtly sweet scent suggests citrus and coriander, which is echoed on the soft, flavorful palate. Cardamom and anise accent the brisk, clean finish. Overall, this is a London Dry-style gin with a few unusual botanicals (cocoa, sarsaparilla root) adding nuance.
