Stop in next Tuesday (Oct. 6) to say hello to the Letherbee Crew and try this season’s sure-to-sell-out-quick limited seasonal gin from Letherbee Distillers.
Letherbee’s 2015 Autumnal Gin features a combination of flavors perfectly suited to the season – bourbon barrel, maple, and allspice. Founder Brent Engel and the gang have been aging gin in a used Buffalo Trace Bourbon barrel for almost 3 years, giving the batch a hint of bourbon’s complex flavors. Letherbee also sourced a single-origin, wood fired maple syrup from The Bunker Farm in Vermont, by way of Greenstate Sugaring in Portland, OR, and steeped house-roasted sugar maple wood chunks in the gin both pre and post distillation. The allspice lends a graceful depth, complementing the char of the bourbon barrel.
The resulting gin is lightly sweet, spiced, and just the thing for these cooler days and longer nights.
