As an homage to our winemaking roots we age our flagship No. 209 Gin in used wine barrels from our sister winery Rudd Oakville Estate in Napa Valley. We hand-select French oak barrels that once housed the Rudd Oakville Estate Red, a Bordeaux-style red blend, and age our flagship No. 209 Gin for approximately 6 months. Each barrel is tasted frequently to track the progression of the spirit and to understand the flavor nuances of the individual barrels. This is a truly unique spirit that transcends gin with a combination of characteristics more often found in bourbon, cognac and even rum.
• 95 pts: “Copper color; toasted strawberry nose; smooth, spicy and toasted with cassis and berry fruit; earthy, long and complex, mushroomy.” –Anthony Dias Blue, Tasting Panel
