FEW Barrel Gin

FEW Spirits in Chicago, Illinois make drinks that are an homage to the past. And one of their first specialty spirits is no exception. While it's quite common to put a spirit like tequila or rum into oak barrels, the practice was nearly extinct in the gin world. But Few Barrel Gin ($40) is now leading a pack of new barrel aged gins. It gives off the juniper aromas you are used to with a gin, but pours an amber color instead, thanks to the four months it spent in oak barrels. The result is a light smoky smoothness that is unlike any gin you've tasted. As the bottle states, "What once was clear is now complex."
