Death's Door Gin has a surprisingly simple botanical mix of juniper berries, coriander and fennel. Using a mix of juniper berries that includes the wild juniper of Washington Island (Juniperus virginiana) with coriander and fennel seeds, Death's Door Spirits is able to showcase how complementary and complex simple expressions can be.
Death's Door Gin employs a flavourful base that includes hard red winter wheat, corn and malted barley. It has a full London Dry flavour without all of the bitterness because of the vapour extraction process and the base spirit (Deathâ€™s Door vodka). In fact, you can taste all three botanicals: loaded juniper berries up front; spicy, citrusy notes from the coriander seeds in the mid-palate; and a soft, cooling finish provided by the fennel seeds.
Death's Door Gin is big enough to stand up to classic or vintage cocktail treatment, but soft enough to be enjoyed on the rocks or as a dry martini. It truly is the "utility" gin of our time.
