Modern and tasty Gin - the American way.

Philadelphia Distilling is an artisanal distillery based in Philadelphia and is actually the first craft distillery in the state since Prohibition. The brand wears the badge of their artisanal label with pride and they claim they're the pinnacle of artisanal craft spirits. Bluecoat got its name after the blue uniforms of the American Revolutionaries, while their Spirits are distilled in a traditional (custom-made) copper pot still.

Bluecoat American Dry Gin is wonderfully light and smooth. Bluecoat distills its gins five times and the tell-tale flavors of juniper are accompanied by a tangy citrus flavor. That gives it a unique aromatic taste that is a wonderful American remix of the classic dry Gin. It is known that the American market prefers slightly sweeter flavor profiles, which is perfectly fine.

While some brands decided to depart from the traditional interpretation of London Dry, creating Gins with little or no traces of juniper, Bluecoat decided to go the other way. They are still redefining the London recipe, but they are not only making the juniper more notable, they are putting it on the center stage. It's a modern and progressive Gin - the American way.

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.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
