Barr Hill’s one of the most memorable and unique spirits we’ve encountered. First, it’s crafted in Vermont, which is uncommon among gins. And, second, Barr Hill was born from an intriguing collaboration between beekeeper Todd Hardie and master distiller Ryan Christiansen.
The team’s process is elegant in its simplicity: they rely solely on a juniper spirit and raw honey that is itself made from local wildflowers. Hence, the gin is truly imbued with the depth of Vermont’s verdant countryside.
This specific mixture is then distilled over a direct fire, catalyzing a reaction that harmonizes acute juniper and sumptuous honey. One taste and you’ll understand why Barr Hill is America’s most awarded gin.
Pairs Well With:
Barr Hill suggests blending their spirit into kettlebell. We did so and it was exceptional, especially during our stroll among nearby wildflowers. We advise a similar experience – and, if you can’t get to a field, a bouquet from the florist or grocery will do well, too. And, while you’re at it, be sure to pay your respects to the bees – we need them for more than just honey.
