Brixx Barrel Gin is barrel aged in red wine casks made from French oak. The barrels bring forward its floral character, while adding a velvet-like smoothness with the color of rose’.
Both new gins begin as New Holland’s award-winning Knickerbocker Gin, before their distinctly different conditioning methods, which happen post-distillation. “We have learned a great deal about the flavors of gin and barrel aging spirits, stated Brad Kamphuis, head distiller at New Holland. “Both of these gins explore new flavors that complement Knickerbocker’s approachable and delicious citrus and spice flavors. We love that defining what gin can be is an ongoing conversation and discovery.”
Blue Haven Gin is a single batch release, which will show up at retailers in April 2016. It will be sold in 750 mL bottles, while supplies last.
