California’s St. George markets 4 totally different gins as a part of its everlasting lineup, together with Dry Rye and Terroir, reviewed right here, which is impressed by the flora of Marin County — the place Drinkhacker beforehand made its residence earlier than shifting to Austin, Texas. The botanical listing contains 12 merchandise, together with native Douglas fir, California bay laurel, fennel, sage, and naturally juniper — plus (non-native) coriander, amongst different components. The bottom for the distillate is unclear.
I introduced a bottle of Terroir with me on the journey. Does it evoke the rolling (golden brown) hills of California? Let’s discover out.
The nostril is unquestionably refreshing and clear, the bay leaf notes popping immediately, making a pleasing counterpart to the milder juniper aromas. Mild citrus, lemon and lime, seem with a little bit of time in glass, with a barely smoky observe — California, certainly! — wafting all through. The palate is tremendous clear. Extra contemporary bay leaf and juniper, a contact of pepper, with that coriander and a cardamom observe constructing towards the end. Notes of evergreen change into all-encompassing and fewer distinct — however lots full of life — with a light smear of fruit working to stability issues out in the long run.
Versatile as may be, it is a well-rounded (and wholly reasonably priced) gin that works properly in something you possibly can envision for it.
