Buy St George Dry Rye Gin
Warm and spicy, it has a natural affinity with bitters,citrus, stone fruit, and ginger.
Wine Enthusiast 92 points - One of a new trio of gins from this small-batch distiller, the Dry-Rye version has a bold, warm caraway scent and assertive notes of juniper and black pepper, finishing with peppy, lingering citrus flavor. Would make for a complex G&T. - K.N. (Apr 2012)

A base of 100% pot-distilled rye makes this a gin for whiskey lovers-and for gin im-purists willing to take a walk on the rye side. Think genever, then think again-and brace yourself for a gin with structure, spice, and an impossibly rich mouthfeel.
Review
Dry Rye Gin has twice as much juniper in its recipe as either of the other two St. George gins, and a base of pot-distilled rye that provides structure and spice. Warm bass notes of pepper and caraway give Dry Rye Gin an intriguing depth of flavor, while the rye provides a sweet maltiness reminiscent of a genever. Try our Dry Rye Gin in your favorite cocktails that call for either gin or rye—or sip it straight for a gin experience like no other.

Technical notes
We make Dry Rye Gin on the same 1,500-liter copper pot still we use to make our Terroir and Botanivore Gins-but starting with unaged rye as the base spirit gives this gin its warm, malty signature. For Dry Rye Gin we chose just six botanical ingredients: Juniper berries are the star here (50% more than in either of our other two gins), complemented by black peppercorn, caraway, coriander, grapefruit peel, lime peel-which were all selected to play up the peppery nature of juniper that we love so much.
