An authentic light & floral craft Gin from Tampa, Florida.
There doesn't need to be an elaborate and complex story behind a distillery and brand. When Matthew Allen and Brandon Marshall decided to venture into distilling, it was with the simplest of goals: to make bloody delicious Spirits. This is how the Cerberus Craft Distillery came to be, and with it the Dark Door Spirits brand. But they wouldn't just be making your regular booze, no siree. Their first release in 2016 was the Spirit of IPA, an IPA Whiskey, and a sign of things to come. The guys went ahead and unleashed their creativity, soon ending up with a lineup of authentic Spirits that challenged the norm.
Their focus on innovation with an emphasis on superior quality is what defines the award-winning Spirit of Prohibition, a lavender-flavored Gin. The base is a neutral grain Spirit that gets distilled in their 1,000-liter column still. The 11 botanicals get added via individual tea bags that are left to soak in the liquid for 2 to 3 days. These botanicals are as follows: juniper berries, cardamom, coriander, angelica root, ginger root, pink peppercorn, various citrus peels (grapefruit, lemon, lime, and orange), and licorice root. Finally, the Spirit passes through a finishing still with the steam passing through juniper berries on its way up, before being returned into the metal container, where lavender and rose hips are added. After 2 weeks, the deliciously floral and lavendery Gin is done!
