Firkin - Oak Gin (70cl, 46%)

Firkin

Since launching in 2015, FIRKIN gin has enjoyed rapid growth, establishing itself as a quirky premium gin for the back bar and any gin shelf. Crafted in small batches, they are proud to stand out from the crowd. FIRKIN is not just another ‘craft gin’, but rather a four times distilled gin with an identity of its own. With a mix of heritage and progressive attitude, FIRKIN is a great-tasting spirit with integrity.

Firkin’s signature London style dry gin is made in the time-honoured way by redistilling carefully selected botanicals which are traditional line up of juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, and orris root. There there’s a short maturation in an American Oak whisky cask. It is during this time that the colour of the gin changes to an alluring golden hue, and the oak influence travels throughout the flavour journey with delicate notes of toffee, caramel, vanilla and sweet oak infused into the spirit. The result of the process is a perfect spirit which is bottled at 46% abv, with each batch having its own completely unique cask genre character.
