Isolation Proof's Summer Gin 750mL
"To make Summer Gin, we macerated and distilled our core botanicals (juniper, coriander, cassia bark, licorice root, angelica root, orange peel, cubeb) together with our summer botanicals: fresh grapefruit peel, fresh blood orange peel, Catskills-grown rhubarb, a touch of raw honey - from bees on our property, pink peppercorn, cardamom pods, and hibiscus flowers. The true star of the summer show though is Rhubarb, which (like ramps) typically has a brief window before the heat or the hungry hands gets the best of them.
We sourced our Rhubarb from a farmer named Cindy who lives high up a mountain, about 25 minutes from the distillery. With an abundance of fresh spring water and cool mountain nights, her magical rhubarb patch grows almost all summer long. And lucky for us, we get to taste and witness the magic of it in real time: she picks and delivers it to us the same day that we chop it up and distill it so it's fresher than fresh."
