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.
|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.
|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.
