This Limited Release Humdinger Gin is made by aging a custom gin that we designed for barrel-aging, in a used american oak bourbon barrel for 4 months.

 

A sweet aroma of oak and cardamom are noticable as soon as this bottle is opened.

Subtle candied citrus opens this gin, followed by sweet cinnamon and vanilla, before a gentle spiced cardamom and smokey finish tails off.


Barrel details:

Barton 1792 Distillery - Bardstown, Kentucky, USA.

American Oak Bourbon Barrel, 4 months aged.

American Oak is hearty & strong, thus imparting more of a spicy, coconut, clove taste profile. This is why it's used for Merlot & Syrah wines.

 

Serving suggestions:

For a tall drink mix with East Imperial Ginger Ale over ice.

For a short drink try in a Hot Toddy, or with a small amount of honey syrup over ice.

Another great mixer to try with this gin is the East Imperial Ginger Beer.

Bourdon Barrel aged Gin

This is the second bottle we have purchased and the flavours can be seen as complex. With a fine tonic there are hints of lemon as well. A fine gin and well worth trying to add to your repertoire of fine NZ made gins. This is my top one for this season for sure.

Smooth, unique, tasty

One of my favourites in the humdinger range. Perfect on a cold day by the fire. Discovered this one at a local bar in Timaru as they ran out of citrus.
Limited release? Please make more!

Gidday Cameron, thanks a lot for reviewing the gin and great to hear you're enjoying it!
We'll send you out a couple of mixers to say thanks.
Cheers, Andrew

Greatest little Humdinger

Perfect for winter evenings - a little soda or ginger ale and you have a very smooth flavour. Warm and lasting. Tasting in Geraldine the ultimate option but online ordering and delivery just as smooth as their product.
