The other night I was wowed by a gin and tonic using Bar Hill Gin, a honey infused gin from a small distiller in Vermont, Caledonia Spirits. If you favor cocktails with infused honey this is flavorful, light, nicely balanced, and a real treat. I've long been a fan of alcohol either honey infused or cocktails with a honey syrup. In fact at a well reviewed restaurant this was my favorite part of the meal. Before posting I checked and didn't see mention of this gin version, which clearly falls into the Old Tom Gin classification. Prior to posting I also read through this review and series of comments from the Gin is in blog. I found only the scantest taste of Juniper, as the honey element was far stronger but not nearly overwhelming. A very nice blend from my perspective. Meanwhile a gin and tonic loving cousin did not find it representative of the G & T's she likes and is used to...so I'd have a slightly different take on it from some of the review comments via Gin-Is-In. Another way to put that is I'll have to try a few more cocktails to see if I can pull out the Juniper elements-- Its for sale in the region. I for one will probably hit that bar again for a Bar Hill Martini and possibly some other experiments before buying a bottle. Look forward to it.
