Cask Aged Gin

Gin can evolve gracefully in cask, acquiring subtle flavours over time. Generally speaking, the aging process imparts notes of vanilla, caramel and spice to the gin, but the opportunity to create additional flavours through maturation is vast.

Cask Aged Gin

While we tend to think of gin as a clear spirit, cask aging can introduce a subtle colouration to the liquid. The gin often takes on a pale golden or amber hue from the wood.

As with other aged spirits, the type of casks used can influence the final flavour of the gin. For example, Four Pillars Barrel Gin is matured in French oak barriques which previously held Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley. This imparts spicy and citrus notes that marry perfectly with the botanicals in the gin.Cask-aged gins are often intended to be enjoyed neat or on the rocks but they can also bring an exciting twist to classic gin cocktails. Try using them to bridge the gap between gin and whisky cocktails. Think Negroni/Boulevardier riffs or Manhattan/Sweet Martini hybrids, the possibilities are endless. The world of gin is continually evolving and cask-aged gins represent both an innovation and an opportunity for producers to create ever more delicious spirits for your gin and tonics.
