Our Barrel Finished Gin is made from...

80% locally grown corn and 20% malted barley. The grains arrive at the distillery already milled into flour. The corn flour is added to 450 gallons of hot water in our mash tank and is cooked to extract the starches. The malted barley is then added to convert the starch into sugar. We don’t wash our mash and the finished mash is cooled and pumped into one of our fermentation tanks where specially selected yeast is added to convert the sugars into alcohol.

After 5 days the yeast’s work is done and we have a corn and barley distiller’s beer that is around 6.5% ABV. The beer is then distilled in our 600 gal hybrid column still in what’s called a “stripping” run to concentrate the alcohol into a low wine of approximately 25% ABV. The low wine is added to our 300 gal finishing still and distilled to approximately 70% ABV.  The collected alcohol is distilled a third time to further smooth and purify to 75% ABV.  This is distilled a fourth time with our specially selected blend of botanicals, including juniper berries, citrus zest, star anise, coriander, and horseradish. During this final distillation, vapor infusion occurs with the blend of botanicals which creates the flavor of our unique and smooth gin. The spirit is collected at 75% ABV, cut with purified water to 60% ABV, and then barreled.

After 4 to 5 months the gin has aged to perfection. Extracting vanilla, caramel, and hints of oak from the barrel. The combination of botanical and barrel flavors produces a unique sarsaparilla flavor. The Barrel Finished Gin is evacuated and cut with purified water to 47% ABV. 

We then hand bottle, label, and seal our Barrel Finished Gin.
