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.

Corner
Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.

Benjamin,
Wow... Wow... Wow! Refreshingly open flavors with floral aromas neatly infused... I tested this on on its own - neat - and repeatedly wondering how they captured all that flavor without offending my senses. Pummelo, apricots, with a light plumaria aroma matched with just the right amount of spice to remind you that your not dreaming. Exceptional.

John,
I enjoy the complex favors of this dark gin compared to the clear gins on the market.

Brita,
This is one of my favorite spirits. The barrel aging adds a great flavor that makes this gin richer and more delicious. I highly recommend it!
