Bimini Gin, Biddeford, Maine (750ml)
Producer notes ~ "Bimini is a modern American gin. While older traditional gins have their place, tastes have changed since the 19th century when many of their recipes were formulated. Bimini breaks away from tradition. It’s not a complex recipe with fancy exotic ingredients you’ve never heard of; Bimini Gin is handcrafted using a few familiar key botanical's— grapefruit zest, hops, coriander seed—that taste bright and citrus-y with a beautiful floral aroma that you’ll continue to savor after the glass is empty. Bimini was made to taste good on a warm sunny day. Period.
All gin uses juniper as its primary botanical flavoring; Bimini Gin uses it differently. Juniper berries are often blamed for the “pine tree” taste that turns many people away from gin altogether. By using a more modern distillation process, the Bimini distillers are able to separate out juniper’s piney flavors and only extract the more floral and fruity notes that harmonize beautifully with the other botanical ingredients. The result is a fragrant, smooth tasting gin that is perfectly drinkable neat or with ice, or enhanced in a cocktail."
