Death’s Door Gin has a surprisingly simple botanical mix of only three ingredients: Juniper berries, coriander and fennel. As the recipe of this Gin is very basic it is impressive how complementary and complex this Gin finally is. Part of it is due to the premium alcohol used for distillation. Death’s Door Gin employs a base of organic Washington Island wheat and organic malted barley from Chilton, Wisconsin. Especially the malted barley creates a nice sweet note on the palate The botanicals are all sourced locally from the USA. They give Death’s Door Gin a full London Dry flavor. Up front, you will taste the typical aroma of juniper berries, then in the mid-palate spicy, citrusy notes from the coriander seeds are present, followed by a soft, cooling finish provided by the fennel seeds. Death’s Door Gin is big enough to stand up to classic or vintage cocktail treatment, but soft enough to be enjoyed on the rocks or as a dry martini.
Interesting info about Death´s Door:
The name of this Gin refers to the chief navigational passage between the Bay of Green Bay and Lake Michigan. It is close to the location of the distillery and also shown on the map of the bottle label. The passage was especially in the early 19th century famous for its strong currents. It recounts the last voyages of innumerable wooden ships pulverized by swirling currents and howling winds.
