As an homage to our winemaking roots we age our flagship No. 209 Gin in used Sauvignon Blanc French oak barrels from Napa Valley, including sister winery Rudd Oakville Estate. Each barrel is tasted frequently to track the progression of the spirit and to understand the flavor nuances of the individual barrels. Once blended, the resulting spirit is truly unique and changes slightly with each batch. Initially, it is sweet with a bit of citrus and a pleasant tang from the wine barrel aging. Mid-palate presents a burst of floral notes—lavender, rose and chamomile—with hints of juniper, reminiscent of a floral liqueur. This gin makes the ultimate dry martini, requiring not even a drop of vermouth.
