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.

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.

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

How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
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.
It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
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!
One of the secrets to Seagram's success, was that they continued to stock inventory during Prohibition in the United States. They were betting that the law would not stand and that demand would spike for quality aged Whiskey once repealed. This gamble paid off handsomely.
