Treaty Oak’s signature Gin barrel-aged to bring out the pecan notes.

Daniel Barnes founded Treaty Oaks Distilling in 2006 in Austin, Texas. He quickly made an impact in the local bar scene and expanded rapidly, delivering a range of Bourbons, Whiskies, and Waterloo Gin. In 2016 they expanded to a new facility on a 28-acre ranch in the small town of Dripping Springs, Texas — about ten miles west of Austin — with new, larger stills and storage rickhouse. In 2018 they became a part of Mahalo Spirits (Angel’s Envy) and RSVP Ventures’ expanding Spirits portfolio.

Waterloo Antique Gin starts off as their signature Gin No. 9. But they barrel age it like Whiskey for 18 to 24 months in new, #3 char barrels resting in the temperamental climate of the Texas Hill Country. And while you might have had a Barrel Aged Gin before, the core Spirit is infused with pecans, and that flavor component really develops and grows deeper in those white oak casks. The resulting Spirit is bottled at 47% ABV and makes for a sipping Gin that both a Cowboy and a Haberdasher can love.

Smartass corner:
When most of us think of “Waterloo” we think of one of two things: a hit 1980s-era pop song by the ABBA; or the decisive battle where The Duke of Wellington defeated Napoleon in 1815. But turns out Waterloo was the original name of Austin, Texas — which now makes sense.

What does Waterloo Antique Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Waterloo Antique Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

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!

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Ruddy Bronze

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The floral and pine aromas are still there, but now they’re married with vanilla notes and herbals.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The barrel aging brings our the pecan and notes of praline without losing the pine notes and spice of the core Gin.

The finish has a dryness and Whiskey-like after-burn.

Ratings & Reviews
The nose is like a sexy cologne and the taste has an interesting flower quality. It’s great for sipping neat or in a cocktail that has lemon.
I tried this neat at first. Alone it was unique but not a favorite. Yet when mixed with some tonic water and lime this transforms into one of the best beverages I've had. My wife tells me I've finally figured out how to make a decent cocktail. Only took me five years.
Tasted neat and on the rocks. At first, the nose was primarily juniper, but I was able to get the pecan/praline when I let it breathe a bit. Taste was primarily licourice/spicy/vanilla for me, with the cooler temp cutting down the heat. The pecan + juniper must be combining that way to my taste buds. Sweeter than I was expecting and therefore a bit disappointing, but smooth nonetheless and a new & welcome approach to gin for me. Whether I will get another bottle will depend on how it compares to Barr Hill Tomcat, which I hope to get soon.
