The Bay of Fundy — “one of many 7 wonders of North America” — might be discovered between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Its namesake gin is made in Nova Scotia, double distilled from corn and proofed with native water over native seashore stones, then re-distilled a 3rd time with eight domestically sourced botanicals. These aren’t formally enumerated, save for juniper, lemon peel, and sun-dried dulse (a crimson sea algae). $1 from every bottle offered goes to the Whale Sanctuary Challenge.

By no means thoughts the ocean spray and the whales breaching, it is a sharp and juniper-forward gin that, on first blush, might be simply mistaken for the standard London dry. Closely natural on the nostril, there’s a considerable angelica-like earthiness that washes over the expertise to enrich the juniper. It’s actually enduring, however whether or not that’s because of a ton of earthy botanicals or all that Fundy stone is unclear. It’s all very easy, with any further botanicals saved in test, not less than till you dig into the palate. Right here some notes of bitter citrus peel and a salty seaweed character change into extra evident. A semisweet, greenery-laden notice endures on the end, recalling notes of licorice root, extra juniper, and a curious darkish chocolate notice.

It’s a curiosity and a nice mixer, however the whales are getting the most effective finish of the deal.

80 proof. Reviewed: Batch #046.
