Appalachian Gap Distillery Mythic Gin - Middlebury, Vermont (750ml)
Sightings of Eastern Mountain Lions like the one of the front of this bottle are so rare they could be considered mythical, but even these mythic sightings aren’t as rare as the mix of botanicals in this gin. Balsam fir needles and Szechuan peppercorns with six other ingredients are added to a neutral base and macerated with juniper berries. The result is an herb garden in bloom on the nose. The base provides a silky smoothness along with a lingering sweetness making way for unique citrus and rosehip notes on the palate. This could be your mythic ingredient in a classic gin and tonic or try a Vermont Gimlet - Gin, lime juice and Grade A Amber-colored Vermont maple syrup.
