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.
