A Texas take on Old Tom Gin with plenty of flare and a punch of citrus.

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.

We imagine that it went down something like this… The folks at Treaty Oak were sitting around sipping a dram after work one day when someone said, “Y’all know what? Our No. 9 Gin is good and all, but how do we make it even more Texas-y?” Waterloo Old Yaupon Gin is named after a wild variety of Holly that grows locally. So they threw some of that in there. Then they added markrut lime and Texas wildflower honey on top of the juniper, anise, and orris root. They bottled new taste creation at 45% ABV to make sure you got a real good hit of the stuff with each sip. Due to the sweetness of the honey, they call it their answer to an “Old Tom Gin.” We think it tastes like a Gin-garita.

Smartass corner:
Markrut lime is also known as Thai lime, kaffir lime, and a bunch of other names depending on where you are in Asia. It looks like a regular lime, but it’s a little bigger and cover in bumps. It is prized for having an extra pungent citrus aroma.

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.

JORDAN
JORDAN,
Orange/bergamot and star anise notes. A sweeter and more syrupy finish.

Jon,
This. Is. The. Bomb! I bought it on a whim as I was shopping other gins so I wasn't expecting much. The nose is indeed terrible, but the flavor and smoothness are out of this world. The earl gray as others mentioned is certainly there and I think it brings a smoothness that I llok for in the best sippers. A definite new go-to for me!

James,
A superb gin with subtle well balanced layers. It’s got more body than most guns, but is not at all heavy. After trying on its own and in various combinations, we recommend it on its own, with a single large ice cube.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Strong taste of earl gray. Really harsh on the nose but a mind blowing taste.
