St. George Dry Rye Reposado Gin
A barrel-aged expression of St. George Dry Rye Gin. Rested in French and American oak wine casks, it has a lovely copper-pink hue and a deep, rich flavor that we think of as an offering to the gods of gin, whiskey, and wine!
We rested our Dry Rye Gin in French and American oak wine casks that previously held Grenache rosé, Syrah, and Tannat. Because unaged rye is the base spirit of our Dry Rye Gin, it lent itself beautifully to some time in barrel. The barrels came from local Blacksmith Cellars, run by winemaker Matt Smith—brother of St. George head distiller Dave Smith.
Dry Rye Reposado Gin has a robust malt character, with piquant spice and the suggestion of stone fruit. It’s a natural in an Old Fashioned, Manhattan, or any other classic rye cocktail and is also a beautiful complement to sherry, ume shu, and ginger.
