Delicious Dry Gin – The American Way.

Bluecoat Distillery is based in Philadelphia and is named after the blue uniforms of the American revolutionaries. Now, the name would imply they don’t like the Brits, but that’s not true. They just like their things to be more ‘Merica. See, they took the quintessentially Londonesque drink, the Dry Gin, and did a wonderful USA remix.

Sure, it all starts just like in ye olde Anglia: with juniper and a bunch of botanicals. But the most obvious difference here is Bluecoat not only celebrates juniper - it puts it on the center stage, using organic Mediterranean juniper berries and top-notch organic American sweet citrus peel. The first one brings softer, spicy and earthy notes to the table, while the latter makes sure Bluecoat American Dry Gin stands out with its classic citrusy finish. It's like America itself: with roots in England, but with a wilder character, having way more fun.

As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
By 2016, there were more than 800 micro-distilleries producing craft Gin in the United States, and Philadelphia Distilling is just one of them.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
