Yahara Bay Barrel Mellowed gin was first released in 2013. It takes their classic, elegant gin of 5 botanicals (juniper, fennel, coriander, citrus, and cucumber) and gives it a 6-month resting in American white oak bourbon barrels that were originally used to age Yahara Bay's V Bourbon. This gives the gin a very light color and complexity.
Yellow straw color. Mild aromas of nougat, coconut, sassafras candy, and a touch of latex with a supple, dryish medium body and a zesty juniper, pepper, citrus and leather accented finish. Finishes strong, try in gin and tonics.
Serving Suggestions: Mixes fantastic with ginger ale and a dash of bitters, with agave for a unique Old Fashioned or with Caipirinha Lime and a few drops of celery bitters.
