Bootlegger 21 New York Gin is a perfectly crafted Gin, made in America, that is good enough to make James Bond change up his favorite recipe.
 
Prohibition Distillery sits in an old, abandoned firehouse in Roscoe, New York—a rural part of the state  just about 1/2 of the way to Canada. That old firehouse was built in 1929, smack dab in the middle of the Prohibition era, or what we adult-beverage lovers refer to as “The American Dark Ages.” The founders are two friend—Brian Facquet and John Walsh—who decided to risk it all, and things are going pretty well. 
 
They started with their signature Vodka, and have since expanded out to a Gin and Bourbon. All of their products go by the name “Bootlegger 21” after the 21st Amendment to the US Constitution which made alcohol legal again in the US (thank goodness!).
 
Bootlegger 21 New York Gin sits in an impressive bottle. It looks like it came out of a time-machine from the 1930’s. But you want to know how it tastes, right? These guys did a great job. Their Gin follows a classic recipe of botanicals; juniper (of course), coriander, bitter orange peel, and kris root start things off squarely placed in Gin history. Then they add lemon verbena leaf, a decidedly New World herb that really adds nice, lemony, minty, herbal something to the mix. 
 
They take a real “less-is-more” approach to this simple recipe and it really works well. They steep those simple, five botanicals for a full 24 hours in 120 proof corn spirit to draw our the essential oils, then bottle the elixir at 94 proof and ready to go into your next G&T or classic cocktail. It is amazing as a replacement for Beefeater in a Vesper Martini … seriously, try it! The botanicals marry perfectly with the Lillet Blanc and it just works.

Did you know it’s named in honor of the 21st Amendment that repealed Prohibition.

The botanical flavor

Ron,
Probably the best gin I've had to date. Very clean juniper and citrus, which goes perfect with a lightly flavored tonic. The higher ABV is nearly unnoticeable in this finely crafted spirit.

Excellent flavor, smooth short finish. Citrus comes right through
