As self-proclaimed "gin-heads," we went for a crisp, refreshing flavor profile to celebrate our warm weather climate. A lot of the mouth feel and texture in Gin can come from the base spirit. We tasted over half a dozen neutral spirits before selecting our base. The clear winner was an organic wheat neutral. Since we are based in Florida, we chose to use dried lemon and orange peel to create that crispness. We didn't want to alienate all that makes gin a gin, though, so we braced the spirit with juniper berries and angelica root, in addition to other traditional gin botanicals. This provides a wonderful balance of crisp and dry.
