A surprising Old Tom Gin with a touch of Asia and barrel aging to boot.

Spring 44 Distilling is literally named after a spring located on founder Jeff Lindauer’s property in northern Colorado. Inspired by the pure, natural artesian water flowing from the spring, he and three of his friends started Spring 44 Distilling in nearby Loveland Colorado in 2010. So far things are going swimmingly and they have six products in their lineup — three kinds of Gin among them. 

To review, an Old Tom Gin sits somewhere between a classic London Dry Gin and the rougher Dutch Genever. It is a bit sweeter and the botanicals have a heavier hand. Spring 44’s Old Tom follows the line, but adds a bit of barrel aging that brings a pleasant amber taupe color and butterscotch notes to the flavor profile. The botanical list has a few surprises too. There are the conventional Juniper, coriander, orris root, grapefruit peel, and rosemary. But they also add Asian galangal root and lemon grass.

Spring 44 is named after the location of the natural spring on the side of a mountain in Colorado, where they source their water, and the strength of their Spirits – 44% ABV.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
Classifications of Gin: London Dry Gin, Plymouth Gin, Old Tom Gin, Genever or Dutch, New Western or new American or International style.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
