Based in Washington State, Big Gin lives up to its name: it’s savory, strong, and unmistakably coniferous. And that’s precisely the point. The founders of Big Gin set out to update standard gin for a new generation.
The product opens with a spicy front – due, no doubt from the addition of succulent Tasmanian pepperberry – that is joined by a wave of verdant, grounding juniper before ending on dry, peppery note that lingers in the best way possible.
While Big Gin does fall on the traditional side of things, it’s a great spirit even for neophytes looking for a remarkable gin tone.
Pairs Well With:
This classically-inspired modern gin does well in representative cocktails, such as an iconic martini. As for activities – Big Gin’s based in Washington state, so partake while listening to that state’s pioneering music – a scene that had as big an effect on that industry as Big Gin will no doubt have on its own.
