Golden Moon Gin – Port Cask Reserve
2014’s reserve gin was conditioned in wet port casks from one of the top port-style wine producers in Napa Valley, California.
Using freshly emptied wet port casks made from French oak from the Limousin forest results in a gin with a totally unique flavor, a wonderful rose-red color and a silky-smooth mouth feel.
Due to the limited availability of these casks and the need to use only wet untreated port casks they were only able to produce 600 bottles per season.
