ABOUT BROOKLYN GIN - it's what's inside that counts!
Brooklyn Gin is a fresh take on gin from Brooklyn.
A cocktail is only as good as it's ingredients. Brooklyn Gin was created to bring a fresh vibrant taste to your favorite cocktail. Using the freshest ingredients, and traditional small batch distilling, we have created gin like no other. Yes, we know this takes a little extra time and effort but we believe you can taste the difference in every sip of Brooklyn Gin.
FRESH CITRUS NOTES
At Brooklyn Gin, we use hand-cut lemons, limes, oranges and clementine's for our botanicals and we refuse to associate with concentrates, artificial flavors, or dry citrus peels which produce dull and flat flavors. To create fresh, vibrant and complex citrus notes there are no short-cuts.
SWEET AND SPICY JUNIPER FLAVOURS
While many use dried juniper berries, which release harsh, piney flavors; we hand-crushed fresh juniper berries to make Brooklyn Gin. Our juniper berries are vacuum packed to retain freshness, allowing us to crush these berries open to release the sweeter and spicier notes for a more flavorful Brooklyn Gin.
VIBRANT FLAVOURS WITH A SMOOTH FINISH
We refuse to use an industrial distilling process that creates bland and stale gin. Instead, we steep fresh botanicals to release the essence and flavors. We then distill in small batches in a Carl Copper Pot Still that has been used for over a hundred years to slowly extract flavor from the fresh fruits and botanicals. The Copper Pot Still interacts with the alcohol in each small batch to remove bitter notes resulting in a smoother gin with more vibrant complex flavors. Yes this method takes more time and craftsmanship but it's all worth it for the flavor and the taste!
