Looks like Whiskey, tastes like Gin.

Crispin Cain has been working in Wine and Spirits in Northern California since 1983, including serving as assistant distiller to Brandy-master Hebert Germain-Robin. He founded Greenway Distillers in 2005 and Tamar Distillery/Mendocino Spirits in 2008. From their small craft shop in Redwood Valley they produce several bands of premium Spirits, including Low Gap Whiskey, Russell Henry Gins, Fluid Dynamics Cocktails, and DSP 162 Vodkas along with Absinth and Liqueurs.

Russell Henry Dark Gin is the brainchild of Crispin Cain, Master Distiller at Tamar Distilleries. He takes the London Dry Gin and ages it in new Bourbon and new Cognac barrels for an year. The London Dry is well-balanced and light, with strong pine notes and delicate flavors. The resulting Dark Gin though is much more exotic, elegant and aromatic. It’s perfumed on the nose, with sweet, peppery and wood flavors. It’s a complex drink, and one well worth seeking out.
