Stonecutter Single Barrel Gin
At Stonecutter Spirits in Middlebury, Vermont, barreling their spirits is more than an afterthought. For Stonecutter Single Barrel Gin, they made dozens of test batches before finding a recipe tailored for barreling. The gin then spends four to six months aging in ex-bourbon barrels while the juniper and citrus notes of the gin recipe mingle with the caramel and vanilla notes the barrel provides. When the perfect balance is achieved, the gin is bottled and ready to consume.
