Sometimes referred to as the the whiskey drinkers gin.
This spirit was one that Manifest Distilling knew they were going to keep in regular rotation long before we ever opened their doors. Their founders’ home bars had a regular rotation of barreled gin from a few American distillers, but there was a limited selection because it is somewhat of a new category in the spirit world.
Like the category of gin, barreled gin gives craft distillers the ability to play with flavors to create a really unique variation without waiting 2 to 4+ years. Barreled Gin will be a regularly available product but will vary from batch to batch. With all of Manifest Distilling’s experimental whiskey batches, they regularly have barrels that were used to age different types of whiskies.
Like blending any spirit, it is not a linear process. You can’t just take a spirit, stick it in a previously used barrel and assume it’s going to turn out great. Each batch that they have developed includes blending different age gins from different barrels.
