Description: Located in the foothills of the Catskills in the Mid-Hudson Valley, Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery is home to the first distillery in New York State since prohibition, American Fruits. Warwick Rustic gin is distilled using juniper berries, citrus peel (lemon & lime), coriander, angelica root, and anise. The sharp juniper notes on the nose lead into a medium body gin with balanced citrus notes and a round yet bracing finish.
Gin Definition: A base spirit is made by fermenting & distilling almost any agricultural product (known as a wash or mash)- most use corn, barley, or wheat. Then it is redistilled with juniper berries, the dominant botanical, along with other botanicals of the distiller's choice (anise, angelica, orris and/or licorice root, coriander, citrus peel, etc.). Gin Styles: LONDON DRY- A legal specification, with no geographic protection, it can be made anywhere but must be distilled to at least 70% ABV and may not contain artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.
