Bluecoat Barrel Reserve Dry Gin tastes like kissing Keira Knightley at a 4th of July Bar-B-Q with a twist of orange … and there just ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.

Bluecoat American Dry Gin is an artisanal distillery based in Philadelphia. The brand are very proud of their artisanal label and wear the badge with pride. They claim to be the “pinnacle of artisanal craft spirits”. This is captured perhaps best, in their still. This copper still was hand crafted and custom made, which certainly makes it unique!  
Bluecoat American Dry Gin is a legend in the craft distilling community. Great craftsmanship, outstanding product, lots of awards. And the name is catchy too, since “redcoats” referred to the British troops during the American Revolutionary War, and “bluecoats” were the Americans, the name “Bluecoat Gin” easily recalls the British heritage of this most American styled beverage—distilled in Philadelphia for goodness sake. But Bluecoat Barrel Reserve is different. 
 
Bluecoat Barrel Reserve Dry Gin is that same award-winning gin-tastic beverage, but it is aged like American Bourbon in charred American oak casks. Golly-bob-howdy Vern! What you end up with is … well, something new. But the real test is taste, right? So what does it taste like? It tastes like great Gin AND great Bourbon at the same time. Like kissing Keira Knightley at a 4th of July Bar-B-Q with a twist of orange … and there just ain’t nothin’ wrong with that. 
 
SmartAss Corner:
Bluecoat Gins are made by Philadelphia Distilling. They were the first craft distiller in Pennsylvania since prohibition. In 2005 when founder Robert Cassell went in to apply for his license, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board officials has to make one up because an official form did not yet exist.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Surprising for any Gin, this one is light amber, like tequila.   
 
Nose / Aroma / Smell
Earthy Juniper takes a backseat to cedar wood and butterscotch.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Orange zest, and a complex, “forest-like” taste with a bit of vanilla.  
 
Finish 
The finish is a bit beguiling, with Gin-like florals and Bourbon-like spice. 
Ratings & Reviews
Stuart
Stuart,
The caramel color is definitely deceiving, yet interesting. It made a fantastic gin and tonic yet.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Unique flavor and unbeatable quality for the price. Make a Barrel-Aged Negroni with it if you don't believe me!

Absolutely delightful gin.

Jacob,
Very interesting spirit, I haven't had anything else like it before. The caramel color fools me into expecting whiskey. However, the aromas of juniper and spices are present and well defined on the nose. The palate is smooth and approachable. Great for sipping or mixing!

Kevin,
I really enjoy this gin, it is very different in a good way. I drink it either neat or on the rocks. This gin does not disappoint.

Blake,
Awesome, unique gin. Good by itself, makes a great gun & tonic, but my favorite drink with it is to make a Elderflower Tom Collins w/ it using equal parts Bluecoat Barrel Reserve, Bittermilk's Tom Collins mix, and club soda & the poor it over ice in a copper mule mug, which brings out the flavors in the copper still distilled liquor!
