Barr Hill Gin tastes like it was distilled directly from a remote northern meadow.   
 
The history of Caledonia Spirits starts with beekeepers, driving back and forth across the country, moving their bee colonies, pollinating crops, and selling raw honey. One day they decided to settle down and moved into a building in northern Vermont that sits half in the United States and half in Canada. It used to be a Prohibition-era bar where you could walk in on the US "dry side" and casually saunter over to the Canada side for a legal drink. How cool is that? They used their farming skills and called upon their Scottish distilling heritage to found a craft Spirits operation on the outskirts of The Great White North
 
Their award-winning Barr Hill Gin has a peculiar secret: it is NOT overly complex. See, some Gins just go nuts with their recipe. They seem to be trying to compete for the longest list of exotic ingredients or something. Not Barr Hill. They keep it pure, clean, and simple. And it works! The Juniper stands out — as it’s supposed to — but there is more to it. So, where do the other flavors come from? 
 
Well, from a bit of honey added just after the juniper is distilled in. And not just any honey. It’s their honey — raw and naturally farmed with bees exposed to elderberry flowers, poplar, and local grains. So the floral aromas and earthiness find their way into this excellent Gin from the land that surrounds them. That’s why they won Gold Medals at both the New York and Hong Kong international Spirits competitions, and that’s why you’ll love it.

Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.

Richard,
Nice surprise find here, tried a small bottle from a boutique liquor store on a whim and didn’t think I’d find it again. Nice and smooth with just one cube. Great honey notes without the sweetness.

Andy,
Had it last night for the first time. Very tasty with Tonic or just by itself.
 
Sally
Sally,
This is a gin you can sip without any tonic or additives. It is outstanding with Elderflower tonic or any tonic really. So smooth and hints of honey. My new favorite gin. I highly recommend it to everyone

Exceptional gin, juniper forward with honey to chase it. Unique and flavorful for use in any gin based cocktail, great in martini

Unusually sweet sipping gin with honey notes and a juniper nose.

Brett,
Way too sweet. Just honey and juniper. It can only fly in a G&T and a Bees Knees...
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Too sweet, not enough juniper or herbal notes. Not what I want in a gin.
 
Justin
Justin,
One of my favorite gins, with a strong juniper flavor to enhance the experience, though the honey makes it a hair too sweet. I prefer the Tom Cat variety of the two; the stronger juniper provides a better balance to the honey finish.

Best gin I have ever had

Just my kind of gin... the soft honey note is subtle & floral & balances the juniper nicely.

VICTOR,
I like it as a sipping gin. The beeswax seal at the top and the slightly yellow tinge reminds you there's honey in there. It has a hint of floral and of course honey. You taste it more on the back end with a crisp finish.

Juniper takes a far back seat to the honey flavors of this gin. Very smooth with floral notes. Is exceptional when combined with elderflower tonic and a wedge of Meyer lemon.

Matt,
Honey is front and center in this amazing gin. When it gets warm outside, this is our go-to for gin cocktails.
