Waterloo Antique Barrel Reserve Gin

Bold and gutsy, this burnished-copper, barrel-aged gin resembles a cross between whiskey and aged rum. The deep, funky aroma suggests molasses and root beer, though the palate veers closer to brown sugar, finishing with dry notes of chamomile tea, cedar and clove. In some ways this unusual gin is similar to the sweeter old tom-style genre; it should be interesting to watch how bartenders use this to re-create Martinez cocktails and other gin-soaked classics.
