Return to List

A limited-edition offering, at heart this is an overproof version of the original Fords Gin finished in amontillado sherry barrels. The cask finishing adds a pale straw tinge and mild almond notes on nose and palate. Bold flavors of dried fruit and vanilla are layered over subtle baking spice, with juniper emerging on the finish. Dilution transforms the gin into a softer, warming, more gently spiced sip. Kara Newman
