Bourbon Barreled Big Gin. 100% Corn base spirit, with a relatively traditional botanical bill buoyed by Tasmanian Pepperberry and Cardamom, the folks at Captive Spirits Distilling rest their flagship gin in barrels formerly used by Heaven Hill Distillery for their Bourbon.
All Gins containing: Tasmanian Pepperberry
Firstly, a special thanks to my friend Katie who picked me up this bottle during her recent trip to Australia! Thank you!
